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.
