been using their stuff since RPGmaker 95,
i dunno how i feel about it, there are much better engines in production and they have been ****** the community around for so long about english verisons and "illegal" translations... when at one point they specificly said they had no plans to bring it out in english. (rpgmaker 2000)
on the other hand im glad to see it in english and tempted by it as it does look like they have put some effort into this one, guess it depends on its price tag. counting down the days but dont know if it will be worth it.
but it looks so nice, and they got rid of a lot of the stuff that bugged me >_>
stupid tempting software >_>
Every game produced with one of the RPG maker tools ends up the same as the last. Still RGPMXP has ruby so that looks alright. I would say that it will probebly be ~$100.
I don't think its gonna be a dime.Why do I say this?
For one RMXP wasn't much greater than RM2K3 and most people perfer RM2K3 anyways.
Second it's on download.com...i've never payed for something on download.com.
Third most of its audince already probably has the cracked version or bought it and used RPG Advocates Patch anyways.
I've never really found RPG Making games that good. I guess it's a good way to learn the concepts of RPGs and how they do triggers and such, but I've never found a 'created' RPG that's had much depth or longetivity.
Still a good bit of fun for a day or two though
RPG Maker XP is a great program, but it's hard now to find good quality sprites. The ones it comes with shot up the standard for graphics. Great program, though.
I have tried RMXP once and I think it's a really cool program... I just hope they won't charge $100 for it when it's released...
The price for RPGMaker XP is about $60.00 (I believe it's US) and it's sold through download.com
Alive RPG Maker sites scare me >.>
plus I'm more of a fan of RM2K3
but really Mista is that 100% right?
screw that I'm keeping my hacked version >.>
