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.

A simple yet efficient way to create your own RPG. It is very user friendly and easy to understand. It has vast customization options, but is limited in some ways. The only things to irritate me so far are tilesets being limited and hard to make, and graphics being tedious to make and put in. Other than that this program is amazing. You don't need any knowledge or expierence in coding. It's straight foward and has advanced coding for the more knowledgable users (which sadly I'm not one of them.) I have spent 9 hours so far on my game and am ust now getting the first quest arc finished (which is only maybe 15-30 minutes gameplay time depending on how well you play.) So if you plan to use it be prepared for your time to be consumed and for you to be sucked into your own creation.

You can also remake Pokemon if you want.
9/10

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

The differences between this version and the newer version are:
+ price(compared to VX Ace)
- default resource map content less versatile(compared to VX Ace)
- smallest map size larger than smallest map size available on newest version(VX Ace)
+ Android compatibility(google play has an application that runs files from RPG Maker XP version)
- 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. Android compatibility is something to think about.
