About This Software

RPG MAKER lets you create an original role-playing game without any prior specialized knowledge or training. RPG MAKER XP is full of the functions you've been asking for, including game data encryption and a scripting feature that lets you change the very heart of the RPG MAKER engine.

By improving the operating environment, the program can now provide support for a full-colour display and greatly enhanced graphic capabilities. With support for PNG full-color mode and alpha channel, you can adjust the settings for graphic translucency as well as specify the transparent color. RPG Maker XP includes three map layers, allowing you to create complex and layered maps. The program includes a base set of graphics and sounds that you can use and modify at no extra charge. You can also import your own graphics and sounds, making your game truly stand out.

RPG MAKER XP is equipped with the Ruby Game Scripting System (RGSS1), based on the Ruby language and customized especially for this program. Though mastering RGSS may take some time, it is a powerful tool in fully customizing your game. You can use RGSS to change how your game looks, feels, sounds and plays. If programming is just not your forte, you can turn to a wide variety of user-created scripts that's shared within the RPG Maker community.

RPG MAKER XP is perfect for beginners and experts alike.

Another great tool, it is not as flushed out as ACE but still works great as long as you know what you're doing. I do prefer the tilesets in this as I like the art a little better.

The differences between this version and the newer version are:
+ price(compared to VX Ace)
+ engine boots in 5 seconds on my laptop (might be the fastest game engine startup available on Steam by a wide margin)
- default resource map content less versatile(compared to VX Ace)
- smallest map size larger than smallest map size available on newest version(VX Ace)
- no Character Generator
- no Shadow Pencil
- no Region Edit mode
- no 1/8 map button display
- no by default facial closeups when speaking to a character(compared to VX Ace)
- scripting is version Ruby GSS 1, VX version is Ruby GSS 3
- no right click quick transfer option (map to map connections... neccessary to do it the long way each time)
- no video imports?(haven't tested this yet, but the reason I got VX Ace was because it could bring in video files - videos for storyline or whatever else - Ogg format)

Other than all that... it works. Both engines have Android compatibility through an Android app on Google Play.

Most popular RPG maker version, and for good reason. Mapping is better than at VX, it was first RPGM-game with ruby programming langune (which allows you to use custom scripts to do a lot of diffirent things), and now it is at steam for 20 €. Try 30 day trial at the program`s website and if you like it, try get it at this sale. It`s very cool tool for RPGs.

This product is worth way more than what you pay. Fun and easy to use as soon as you learn the basics.
HOWEVER before buying it read this.

RPG Maker XP is a younger version than the VX. Unlike the VX the XP does not have expensive DLCs.
The RPG Maker XP comes with a bunch of sprites and sounds to enjoy as soon as you get it. A bit limited though.
That is because the RPG Maker XP is a tool for the creative people, who make their own sprites, sounds etc.
If you are a creative person with patience this could be the tool for you!

Overall RPG Maker XP is hard to use at first BUT as soon as you get slightly used to the tools you will be greatly rewarded.
Took me 2 hours to learn the basics. Note: I'm not the sharpest knife in the shed, so you will probobly et it way before I did.
If you are still confused and fustrated there are many guides on the web that tells you how to use RPG Maker XP.
Even small things that will be done will feel awesome for you.

And BEST of all! You can share the games you make with your friends!
As soon as you learn the basics you will be greatly rewarded and feel awesome about it and yourself. Take pride in your games. Tell your stories and let your tales grow far and wide with your friends.

I give the RPG Maker XP a 10/10. It is very fun and easy to use. And the creative people have alot of space to challange themselves with.

If you are not the creative person, or have creative friends I would recomend you buy the VX and some DLCs.
