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.

Overall, I'm content with RPG Maker XP, however my main grievance is that multiple times, it's suddenly lost all compatability for my project. My main example is that I had been working for probably a week and a half on a game and I was really feeling it. The game would be actually good. I booted up my computer, opened up RPG Maker XP, and suddenly I got an error and just lost all my work. That's probably an outlier of a situation. Overall, it's easy to use and offers a lot for its' pricetag. Very much worth it.

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.

This is a solid engine to make games in, and in some aspects better than VX Ace. If you need something powerful for cheap, get this.

While XP Ace is for hobbyist, If you're looking for a commercial release then this is the engine you'll want.

I have always loved playing g ames but never thought of making one or two myself until I got this. RPG maker XP has all the tools you need to make your own awesome little rpg. There are two different versions of this software, this one, and Rpg vx ace which has more tools and is more advanced but costs more so as long as you can deal with finishing a game in a longer amount of time but having the same quality this is right for you. I highly recommend it because of it's simplicity of how easy it is to use and get a hang of. 9/10

okay before people go nuts for seing that i did not recomend it, let me say this first.

The software its self is amazing but thing is in order to distribute your game in any way
then your not allowed to use the default graphics and sounds the software provides.
So then whats the point of making a game if your not allowed to distribute it?!

The only way you will be allowed to even use your game legally outsidde of rpg maker is if
you export your game using your own graphics/ sounds and clearly you cant be a beginner to
make your own graphics/music/sounds.

Your not allowed to even use your game outside of rpgmaker if you use the default graphics/ sounds that the
software comes with..


BE WARNED THIS HAPPENED TO ME AND that money down the drain.... >:(

I've used the retail version for many years. While I personally prefer VX Ace, this one is much easier for new users and there are a lot more custom resources available for it.
Just like every other RPG Maker version, I recommend it.

Best RPG maker software I've ever used. Surprisingly, better than VX Ace. The unique charm to the graphics are great, and is very eays to use for new game programmers, like me. Totally worth the money spent.

Having been an avid RPG maker fan for many years now, I realised that it has been a long timesince I tried the older incarnations past VX and VX ACE, so my first stop was RPG maker XP.

Although not as versatile as ACE, it is not hard to see why many people choose to remain using XP over VX. As well as being simple and strpped back to basics, XP contains many of the features removed from VX and reintroduced into ACE due to user demands such as multiple tileset support.

I pesonally find the larger, chunkier sprites used in XP highly preferable to the chibi style ones found in later incarnations, but this is just a personal preferance.

Although you may find the user interface somewhat simplistic and less 'stylish' if you are used to that of Ace, its simplicity; as with all the RPG maker series helps it to be incredibly user friendly and useful.

Overall anyone looking to make their own RPG should definately give XP a try.
