    RPG Maker

    I played RPG Maker 2000 when it came out for PC way back when, and got bored recently and decided to play with it again.

    I figured some of yall could get bored and want something to do, so I made a torrent for it.

    It includes all the windows versions: 95, 2000, 2003 and XP, if you wanna gie it a shot, d/l from here: http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/5 ... 1166136955

    If you dont have an account, youll have to wait till tomorrow to sign up, I may upload it on piratebay, but busy atm.

    Everytime I tried starting one up on RPG Maker 3 on the PS2 I got pissed, because it takes like 2MB of space on the memory card...

    rm2k used to have a cult following i used to play with this a lot, and i was really good with it (remember idraw?) and making sprites. i made some custom battle systems (side view) and custom UI menus that were nice, especially for my age and lack of programming knowledge.

    I always found it to be way too limited for my tastes

    I downloaded RPG Maker XP recently, but it went back to the crappy Dragon Quest style combat system, which felt like a step back after getting the FF style system in 2k3.

    I remember those, I've always wanted to go back and do something on XP sometime (and actually finish what I started for once <_<). RSS was the first time I'd actually worked with anything resembling real programming (considering "programming" custom stuff on RM2k doesn't really count <_<;)

    I always thought Ruby was more complicated than it needed to be.

    actually a buddy and I were making a game with this and we got pretty far with it, but the thing was we were using the NetPlay server so it could basically be an MMO, we had a nicely script UI and etc and were gonna put the best of both worlds from FFXI and WoW, but its so hard doing everything with two people =_=

    oh man XD I still have these on my computer. Though sitting there doing nothing I loved it. I just really wished I coulda made my own graphics, except I sucked at it and ya.. graphics were rather too limited XD

    I found it all to be rather limited TBH... they need to come up with an actual good one (that has decent gameplay at least..)

    In the XP version, you can really do whatever you want to; as long as you know how to program in Ruby.

    XP is pretty versatile, yeah. And even if you don't know how to program yourself you can usually find a script someone else has made that does what you want. I'm working on a game for my LS right now just for fun. rmxp.org has a scripts section with all sorts of stuff including things like a FF-style battle system with optional addons for all sorts of things including Limit Breaks and even something akin to Skillchains.

    I used to mess around with 2k and 2k3 but I'd always run into some sort of limitation that would just kill my desire to continue. ><
