Old/Lost RpgMaker Games - SegNin's Rare/Obscure RM Games Request Topic

I noticed that the RTP files linked in the Master List are broken, and also the lack of the so-called RTP Add-on for RM2K. - RM2K RTP - RM2K RTP Add-on

I've had these uploaded (RM2K RTP and RTP Add-on) for ages, specifically for archival purposes, so if you would like to link them instead please feel free to do so. They are the original files that Don Miguel provided almost 22 years ago.

I would like to also provide the RM2K3 RTP by RPG Advocate, but he bundled that into RM2K3's installer and obviously I can't provide that. If there's interest or demand I can zip up the installed RTP files separately, and maybe also provide a .reg Windows Registry file to add any appropriate registry keys if that's necessary.

Regarding moving this to Reddit, I would like to strongly oppose the proposal. The internet is getting far too centralized as it is, and Reddit is one of the players guilty of pushing this trend. Putting archival efforts into one, central location outside of the RM community's control means the entire thing can (and will) disappear when Reddit dies. Let's not do that.

Reddit would also be very bad for reasons besides "all eggs in one basket", but I digress. That's a discussion for another time.

Also, my sincere condolences for your loss. Take it easy.

Am I banned from the discord?

I play SMT religiously and no one can stop me. All hail Jack Frost

Hii hoo~!

First Seed Material / REFMAP gone; resource recovery operation go!

I'll get around to updating the OP (many years late :V), it's great to see REFMAP is back. RPG Maker just wouldn't be the same without them.

July Demo Release!

Seeing this is still going strong is a great trip down memory lane and back to the present!

Also, I'll have to take a look at Heroes of Umbra sometime. Didn't realize you'd gotten a game out on Steam, nor that it was good ol' DHM.

Does anyone remember GamingGroundZero? (Remembering GamingGroundZero)

Quite a remarkable trip down memory lane, this thread is.

I believe I have this, I uploaded it to my locker for anyone willing to see if it's the right one. =V

[Poll] Does RPG Maker net have low engagement rate?

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, basically it's what gives webpages all its nice colors, pictures, fonts, and other such stuff. RMN lets you write your own CSS for your game pages to better present your game.

[Poll] Does RPG Maker net have low engagement rate?

Why can't you just buy it? It's not that expensive, it really isn't with all the work I've put into it. I put it on sale too every now and then, it was on sale on the anime weekend and was 2,99$.

I mean absolutely no offense when I say this, but seeing the seller of a given merchandise say that doesn't come off that well for prospective players and customers. Having a price tag is fine, but you need to justify that purchase beyond saying "it's cheap!". That lack of justification, or in other words marketing, is what appears to be the problem judging from Halibabica's posts.

Seriously, how many times has a demo made you go "WHOA I want to buy this game" instead of "I don't want to buy this game"?

Quite a few times actually. Nowadays with Let's Plays and video reviews from trustworthy sources like TotalBiscuit being the norm there is much less practicality for demos, but back in the good old days I played demos of games like Age of Empires II and absolutely craved for the full thing.

In the absence of the industry doing the marketing for you, a demo is in my opinion one of the best ways to let potential customers see if they can justify that purchase.

[Poll] Do you prefer IRC, Slack or Discord?

IRC. Simple and effective. Clients are not forced to look like aliens under a Windows Explorer GUI, as is the case with Slack/Discord. Discord also refuses Windows XP support, screw that noise.

If people want to shut down IRC, I'll just keep on managing it myself on the side. It's low maintenance and there are still people that use it.

Why aren't you fuckers in IRC?

IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, is a chat protocol developed in 1988. It is older than the World Wide Web which most people consider as the "internet".

Besides its use for general purpose chat, IRC has also influenced subsequent newer chat protocols and programs such as Discord and Slack in design and features and is also used to facilitate game chatting features (Warframe's in-game chats utilize an IRC backend).

Design wise the protocol is rather simple and is meant to be used (normally) in a distributed layout with multiple IRC servers connecting to each other to form an IRC network to which the users connect to. This means IRC is fairly strong against individual servers crashing or otherwise becoming unreachable, since the network itself will usually stay up from the other servers.

Individual IRC servers can serve users on its own as well. For example, if RMN were to host its own IRC server it wouldn't be part of any network, it would be just by itself, since there wouldn't be a need for multiple servers.
