Bonus RPG Series Video Tutorials

With the release of the five-part RPG Series video tutorials we mentioned how we were taking feedback for our next series and that in the meantime a new "Bonus" video tutorial would be created to cover some additional topics not featured in the main series. I can now give an update on the status of this bonus tutorial and what it'll cover:

  • How to create a Flashlight/Torch (covers Lights, Timers and Custom Controls/Input Triggers)
  • Making a Roof for our Bedroom (covers Map Layers and Zones)
  • Hidden objects/temporary blocking (covers Zones)
  • Implementing an Auto-Save feature (covers Save/Load and Custom Events)
  • Removal of black borders around small Maps (covers Video Resolution and "Change Zoom" event)

The bonus tutorial will be split into two parts (both parts will be released simultaneously) and should be completed by the end of the week.

New Version (v1.019.003)

We've also updated 001 to v1.019.003 which fixes a number of reported issues. As always you can see the full list of changes here: https://www.engine001.com/changes.htm

In regards to the Show Save/Load Game bug, affected projects will need to change the value of the Comparison Branch event inside the "Player Enters" trigger to "Yes" (1). See image below:

NEW RPG Video Tutorial Series Launched!

Last year we mentioned that we'd begun creating a new video tutorial series that would show new users how to create a fully functional game from start to finish.

I'm pleased to announce that our five-part RPG Series is now finished and has launched on our official YouTube channel!

Watch on YouTube

Full YouTube Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgohPz-X6YwiwPdOLdgc-9GQc369ZzKCF

Note: You can click on the "Subtitles/closed captions" button in the bottom-right of the YouTube video player to enable subtitles.

In the span of just over 30 minutes, you'll learn how to create your first Map with some moving NPCs, create quests and cut-scenes, customise the player's appearance and attributes, add gamepad support and new resources, create a main menu and customise the HUD, build your game for others to play and more!

Share your feedback!

As always, we're interested in hearing the thoughts and suggestions of our community - not only on these tutorials (and how we might possibly improve upon them) but also your suggestions on other series you'd like to see covered in the future!

If you have a game/genre you'd like to see a video tutorial series on, then please leave a comment with your suggestion!

More on the way!

In the mean time, I can confirm that a sixth "Bonus" video tutorial for the RPG Series is currently in the works. After finishing the pre-planned five-part series we realised that we could cover a few extra topics that new users might find particularly useful. We hope to have this new video tutorial ready within the next fortnight so stay tuned!

About This Software

Create games without limits
001 Game Creator prides itself on offering users a diverse set of tools and features to create any type of game you can think of:

  • PC, Steam, Android/iOS (native), HTML5 with multi-finger gestures and network testing
  • Online Multiplayer/LAN/Networking (supports both TCP and UDP)
  • Multiple layer map editor with parallax canvases
  • 2D/3D camera system with 7.1 3D HD audio
  • Split-screen games with multiple gamepad support
  • Sprite layer, 3D model, normal mapping, custom shader materials and particle effect systems
  • Dynamic resource loading/unloading to improve performance/reduce memory usage for larger games
  • Interface/HUD designer
  • Built-in graphics editor
  • AI action battle mechanics and actor routes
  • Choice of graphical script and text code editors with game debugger, variable watching and statistics

Graphically Assisted Scripting
001 Game Creator offers creators the ability to craft intuitive and imaginative games without any prior coding knowledge. This is especially beneficial to artists and designers who prefer a more hands-on and visualised approach or developers who don’t wish to spend hours bashing their head against a wall. Unlike traditional Event-Driven Programming applications, 001 Game Creator offers a huge set of built-in events, with the ability to also create custom events for specific tailor-made functionality just for your games.

PC, Steam HTML5 & mobile development all-in-one
001 Game Creator allows developers to build their games for Windows PCs (exe) - with Steam API support (achievements, statistics, etc.), HTML5 (js/html) and mobile devices (apk) all-in-one! Unlike other similar engines, 001 Game Creator provides developers with the freedom to create their games for all available platforms without paying anything extra. Best of all, there are no additional license or revenue fees for selling your games - so if you’ve purchased a copy of 001 Game Creator you can sell your games without having to share the profits with us!

Play games with everyone
001 Game Creator gives developers the tools to create ambitious online multiplayer/co-op experiences with built-in networking features (TCP/IP). In addition, 001 Game Creator also allows developers to create local multiplayer experiences with up to four players - with multiple gamepad support included.

The possibilities are endless
001 Game Creator unlocks the doors to a wide range of possibilities. Make any game you can think of, including (but not limited to) RPGs, shoot-‘em-ups, racing games, fighting games, simulation games, platformers, tower defense, card games and even 3D games! If you can imagine it, you can create it with 001 Game Creator.

Please note: Our documentation is currently only available in English at this time.
