There’s been some more questions regarding the Quest Journal System so we figured it wouldn’t hurt to answer some more questions and show off some more of its functions before it gets released after this week’s upcoming batch. However, for those who want to try out the beta version of this plugin, it is available for champion-tier patrons to play around with so be sure to check it out!

Res Judicata: Vale of Myth Trailer – by Blue Booth Studios

Heya, all! We have a nice announcement to make! A fellow RPG Maker has just finished and released a game! 😀 Here’s the trailer for Res Judicata: Vale of Myth Trailer, by Blue Booth Studios! Congratulations on your release!

Company Page:

Res Judicata, or RJ for short, is a 2D comical JRPG, set in an alternate-history Earth in 1315 AD, shortly after the Pope dissolves the Templar Order. Blending the best aspects of western and eastern RPGs and boasting an average playtime of 20 – 30 hours; RJ showcases mythologies, locations and cultures around the globe! Those tired of playing pest-control will be thrilled to hear there are no rats, bats, or orcs here; Vale of Myth’s bestiary is a collection of hand-picked mythological creatures from many cultures. New to JRPGs? No problem! RJ encourages new players with a number of accessibility, difficulty, help, and save options. Take on the role of Garbhan, Scottish Highlander, as he battles (and drinks) his way across the old world. During his journey, Garbhan will join forces with three dysfunctional companions, including Francis, a bard notorious for his utter lack of singing talent, and Daron, a chivalrous ex-knight notorious for his skirt-chasing. Find a trove of hidden treasures and secrets and unravel the mystery of powers interested in these odd heroes, why spirit travel with them, and why ancient evils stir once more!

Yanfly’s Desktop Optimized Version Update – RPG Maker MV 1.5.1

The RPG Maker MV 1.5.1 update added a lot of wonderful new features to MV as a whole. However, the source code has been updated in a way that favors mobile game optimization over desktop games. Because of this, RPG Maker games running off the 1.5.1 source code tend to have strange issues when images are loading unlike versions 1.4.0 and below.

Yanfly made a version update to the 1.5.1 source code by meshing it together with the 1.4.0 source code, taking the best of both worlds for desktop optimization. This way, for developers who aim primarily at the development of games for desktop, your games will be running as they did with the 1.4.0 source code while being able to make full use of the new 1.5.1 features!

For instructions on how to install this plugin, follow the instructions in this video.

Happy RPG Making!

RPG Maker MV 1.5.1 Update

1.5.1

Update Link

There’s been another new RPG Maker MV update! This time, from version 1.5.0 to version 1.5.1! Here are the changes made by this update! From what I can tell, it’s mostly fixing a bug involving forced actions that occur preventing them from updating the turn counter (and thus, updating the states and buff counters). I’ll have to be testing around to see if this affects my plugins so that’s up in the air for now. There’s also a bug fix to the Control Variables command, too.

For those using the Yanfly 1.5.0 version, you can install the the 1.5.1 update for the software, but I recommend that you don’t update the source files to 1.5.1 just yet. I’ll be making updates on that soon.


rpg_core.js

  • Sprite.prototype._renderWebGL updated to be picky when detecting usage for a heavy renderer
  • PIXI.GC_MODES.DEFAULT = PIXI.GC_MODES.AUTO; changed to PIXI.settings.GC_MODE = PIXI.GC_MODES.AUTO;

rpg_managers.js

  • BattleManager.initMembers added new this._turnForced variable
  • BattleManager.endTurn updated to check if a turn has been forced
  • BattleManager.isForcedTurn new function
  • BattleManager.processForcedAction updated for new forced turn variable

rpg_objects.js

  • Game_Battler.prototype.onTurnEnd updated to have a check for a forced turn
  • Game_Interpreter.prototype.command122 (control variables) updated to have a proper range calculation change

rpg_scenes.js

  • No changes

rpg_sprites.js

  • No changes

rpg_windows.js

  • No changes

Happy RPG Making!
