Generic RM2k3 RTP Gaming Fun!

I always wanted to make that game based on everything I enjoyed as a kid. This is the end result.



Hero's Realm creates a super-synergy of proactive features to create a gaming experience greater than the sum of its parts.


Lead four heroes and their teams against the evil forces of Mephistocles, the Lord of Demons in this retro-RPG adventure. Toggle between the four heroes as you explore dungeons, ascend towers, spelunk caves, save villages and defeat the forces of evil! Reminiscent of classic RPGs such as Dragon Quest III and Final Fantasy V, Hero's Realm is a fun romp in old-school RPG nostalgia.


-22 character classes (12 base classes, 4 hero classes, 3 secret classes, 3 master classes)
-TONS of game content and sidequests
-Classic NES-era and SNES-era RPG gameplay
-Great music
-Multi-party switching system (like Kefka's Tower in FFVI!)
-Multi-party tactical battles (at least 5 of them!)
-Massive world map
-Fun


The story is split into 5 chapters, with each of the first four chapters focusing on a new hero, and the 5th chapter bringing them all together.

Chapter 1: Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children?
Chapter 2: There is Something Fishy Going on...
Chapter 3: Land of the Rising Son
Chapter 4: True Calling
Chapter 5: The War on Terror

Try to change RPG_RT.exe to compatibility mode with Windows 7, maybe?

Already did.
Such as updating the direct, turning into 640x480 resolution, but nothing works.

Is there any specific program that you do use to play it?

There is nothing specific I use to play it. I have a Windows 10 machine with a 4k display, too, so you'd think I might have trouble...

Maybe we can make a post to the greater community and ask.

I am using a VM with Win 7 and it is working.
Major i mean MAJOR oversight in the second chapter go into the mine then head left,if you do the rock puzzle to get the treasure but somehow push the bolder back then you are pretty much softlock.

Even if it pretty early in the game this kind of oversight should NOT happen

You get what you pay for I guess. Thanks for the heads up!
one more problem that i think can ruin the game for some people,when searching underfoot you not only have to stand in the tile but also have to face a certain direction,this can make finding certain item a pain in the ass as new player dont know about this "mechanic"

this isn't true. if this is something you've encountered you're going to have to document it, as the code does not factor in the direction the character is facing when searching underfoot.
i have a problem...........my samurai i equip sword of malice into the second weapon slot and now i cant unequip it,thought about it being a curse i go to uncurse it but it only seem to remove my first weapon slot which is NOT curse and now i seem to be stuck with this sword for the whole game which im guessing there more powerful weapon than that in the future.
also a hilarious oversight the monk class meditate skill if you have half MP equipment he can just spam meditate and basically get infinte MP

It's a bug! (one of many in this free game I made over a decade ago). But if you send me your save file I should be able to fix it.

this is not a bug its uh.... a feature. Yeah.
uhhh im using easyrpg(which btw make battle slightly faster and sometime skip the inn sequence although when it IS there it sound distored and funny but also make some town music glitch out)so how can i locate my save file?

From what im reading the "class upgrade" is overpowered and can make the game too easy is that true and can i beat the game with only basic class but with NO grinding?(my forth party is probally the weakest healing wise because there no healer in this group)

If i CAN beat the final boss with basic class then what about optinal dungeon and bosses?

Also is the curse "fixed" permanent or do i basically sell every curse equipment?(although i have heard there a class that can equip them no problem)

and also im not allowed in the men club in vagus(no other party can go in) but somehow the ninja(who clearly a dude) is able to enter the woman club?

Whenever i use a skill if it the enemy turn the skill is then spam again?This massively help goof off user or magiccombo,pummel user but most of the time it just play the animation which is annoying.

Also IF you want to remake the game someday would you like me to give some idea for balancing the class(some clearly not as good as other)

I am not familiar with how EasyRPG stores savefiles, sorry.

Class Upgrades are, well, upgrades, and are meant to allow you to improve characters of the same class-family (mages can become Channelers, etc.). They are not required to beat the game. A properly balanced team (or overleveled team) would be able to handle anything this game throws at you no problem. It's probably even enough just to have 1 of the 4 parties to be effective - since you only ever fight with one party at a time (except for 1 special battle). I tried shooting for the end-game levels to be around level 40-45ish.

I didn't make some uber-hard optional boss or dungeon in this game (like has become standard in every RPG since 1997). This game is modelled more after the early 90s RPGs (and by the end, I was tired and out of ideas). So don't worry about it. You'll be able to beat the final boss. (If you are overpowered, be careful to let the "story" part of the battle against Shadowstorm play out without killing him - otherwise you'll get stuck. this is another bug)

The curse bug is when you equip a cursed weapon into the offhand of a dual-wielding character. I forgot to take that into account in the force unequip cursed item script - so the offhand WEAPON isn't forced unequip. What I will do is make an updated temporary fixed "map" for you that will contain an updated fixed script that you can manually trigger, to fix your character. Whereabouts are you in the game?

The Vegas clubs entry requirements are buggy. Sorry. But it is supposed to be only checking to see if the ALIVE party members are male or female before granting admission...

There is a defect in the RM2k3 battle code that sometimes "pauses" all actions when certain events are triggered, and doesn't "unpause" until that character takes another action. There's nothing I can do to fix that, as far as I know.

Also, I AM remaking the game (slowly! I started 5 years ago).

Shoot me whatever thoughts you have! I have many lists of suggestions and bug reports I am taking into account.

Im right at the class upgrade shrine justing waiting to see if i should do it because i want my party to be OP but only in 1 aspect and all class seem to do is make them master of all which make everyone the same which is boring to me.(that why i choose every single playable class for every slot)

but somehow the ninja(who clearly a dude) is able to enter the woman club?


He is a ninja :P
He is a ninja :P

Yeah make sense he can tranform into a girl
man finding the savefile for easyrpg is a nightmare lol
