RPG Development Studio (RPG game maker)

Post by thedevilsjester on Sun Apr 20 2008, 17:18

I am a game and software developer. I have been creating software for nearly 10 years and I have a tattoo of Tux.

My "baby" is a cross platform (Currently Linux and Windows) RPG development tool called RPGds. Find it at http://www.rpgds.com

I am in need of testers to help find critical bugs (and suggest new features) before the nearing 1.0 release.

I can provide updated versions for testing (so we are working on the same page) if you contact me via AIM.

My AIM SN is Akuma No Houkon for anyone interested.

Here is a short about page if you are interested

http://www.rpgds.com/rpgdshelp/RPGds_Features.html
and
http://www.rpgds.com/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=26&func=view&id=175&catid=2

If you decide to help there are example games in the forums on my site.

(btw, I was told by cat that I could post this shameless plug, I wouldnt do it otherwise)

Python is a scripting language, not a programming language. It does not compile to native code, it is interpreted on the fly. (and therefore much slower).

I am a C/C++ developer with his early roots in basic languages from Apple Basic (Apple 2e) to Visual Basic.

A new version is coming soon, it would be nice if I could get some people to test the hell out of the current release so that I can make this next release as bug free as possible.

I can now provide an updated Linux and Windows version to those that contact me via AIM, so you are testing with the latest fixes.

I should have no problem on testing it on Linux.
Though i think my motherboard is beginning to break down...
My mouse stopped working for a while on both Windows and Linux, now it works again, but for how long?

The new release has been delayed a bit, but the new features more than make up for it. I need some new testers to help with testing private builds of these features before they hit the masses.

Please email me, visit www.rpgds.com or post here for more information.

Midget sprites?

RPGds sprites can be any combination of a power of two from 32x32 to 128x128 in size (with up to 8 directions and 7 frames of animation including idle poses), I would hardly consider those midget sizes. In fact, I dont think there is a 2d RPG that exists that has anything larger, other then for extreme special use like "large bosses" and they dont use standard sprites for those.

The recommended (by me) size is 32x64 (as seen in the second screenshot) which is approx 2x the size that most Classic SNES RPGs use.

It requires heavy scripting to get the most out of it, though it has a very powerful and easy to use scripting system that doesnt require you to know or memorize any complex commands.

You can do whatever your heart desires. You have absolute control over every aspect of your game.

RPGds' script system was initially patterned after the RM2k scripter (if you are familiar with that) though much more powerful and imbued with many modern scripting/programming concepts.

Anything less and you are not creating a game, so much as you are creating a scenario.

The goal of the RPGds script system is to provide a system that is easy enough to use that beginners can jump right in without learning a programing language, but powerful enough that experianced users dont feel like they are playing with a Fisher Price toy.
