No updates since april, on top of the stolen rpg maker work huh? You trickster you, I should have realized this was a troll game when I looked at your profile pic. Ridiculous.

I'd love to be able to make a game like this looks so retro.

Just buy RPG maker and you can. Get VX or XP versions though. Unless you are Japenese, you can only get 2003 version if you get the illegal hack, and plus that version is dated and full of bugs anyway.

I haven't actually tried this game, but this looks awfully like RPG Maker. Are you sure the engine is custom built?

That is rpgmaker, specifically 2003. The sprites for the characters on the world map are all default ones from the rtp of it, same with the tiles. What sort of nonsense are they trying to pull here?

Perhaps they are placeholder sprites?

Possibly placeholder sprites, but highly suspicious. I used to play around with RPG maker quite a bit but never really made anything with it. After toying with it for about 2 hours you easily have a game that looks exactly like this. I mean just watch the trailer and it's literally just a few seconds of the battle system in RPG maker 2003. Of course I could be wrong. Orcywoo, what programming language are you coding this in if it's not an RPG maker game?

Ok nevermind, downloaded the tech demo and it is obviously RPG maker. Not that I care if anyone wants to make money selling an RPG maker game but you could at least be honest about it! Giving people false hope that you've made the engine and are working to patch the errors is not on! By the way anyone having the DDERR Unsupported error, just use the fix i posted on the other page of this thread. It should work for most, it is an error that happens on RPG maker alot. Due to it using an old directX version.

So I already found a way to break things. Do NOT use the "Stone of the Alpha" while in the boat...

Also I have a bad flicker in full screen mode.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit edition

Proc - AMD FX - 8120
Video - Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (driver version 296.10)
Desktop Resolution - 1280 x 960

Hopefully that is at all useful to you. If you had a dedicated website, I would post this there instead.

I was surprised to see that my PC controller worked with no programming needed. No documentation said anything about this, so its a pleasant surprise to get to play this like an old console type RPG should be!

I would also note that skills need re-balanced. As is, I see no reason to use them at all over the all-powerful auto option. But yes, I realize how early along the game is. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the bug report, this will be patched in the next build, that is something we never would have thought of!

The flickering issue is currently being investigated and is very very odd, for the time being we will have to suggest windowed mode, sorry! We will try to come up with a solution asap.

Heh, you're welcome! ;)

Yeah, the skills have not been much of a priority thus far and so they are horribly underpowered, they will be rebalanced over the next few patches and builds whilst we are trying to find the best ground for them. Thanks for the feedback!

Also, a website should be coming sometime soon when we get around to having one made!
