[RM2K3] How to make games run smoothly on modern PCs

Thanks! I'll notice the author of Lufia V too!

[RM2K3] How to make games run smoothly on modern PCs

Thanks! @goldenroy

Those are really useful tips! I didn't know about the difference between the different RTPs. I see now that Lufia V uses an old RTP and also DynRPG patches. So, I guess my experience could be much better with other RM2K3 releases. Next on the list is Theia, so I'm curious to see how that one performs!

Also, someone having any experiences with EasyRPG player and RM2K3 games?

[RM2K3] How to make games run smoothly on modern PCs

Hi all,

I've been eyeballing several fantastic looking RM2K3 games to play them on my PC. Though my experience with Lufia V - For The Savior has made me a bit wary. Apparently, RM2K3 games and modern Graphics cards don't play nice. When starting an RM2K3 game on my PC, it switches to Fullscreen, making the game look blurry and the framerate takes a notable hit. When switching to windowed mode, everything looks razor sharp and the framerate is top notch, though... now the screen is way too small. Secondly, when playing with an (XBOX360) controller, it defaults movement to the analogue stick, with no way to switch it to the D-pad. Also, there is some kind of input lag, so you'll walk around like a drunken sailor.

So, the way I fixed the screen problems while playing Lufia V:
- Open AntiMicro to remap keyboard arrow keys to the XBOX360 controller
- Open the game
- Press F4 to switch to windowed mode
- Open Windows Magnifying Glass
- Zoom to 200%, and recenter the screen on a black background
- Connect my PC to a TV with HDMI and zoom a bit further on the TV, to make the borders above and below disappear from the screen.

That way the game runs fantastically. Though, it feels a bit overcomplicated to have to redo these steps every time I start the game.

So, how have you guys worked around these RM2K3 issues? Are there know fixes, patches, other solutions? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Final Fantasy Blackmoon Prophecy II Review

I sure did! It felt pretty magical to play a game that impressively recreates the Final Fantasy VI world in a whole new way!

Complete Fan JRPGs to recommend?

I want to thank you all for the suggestions. Currently I'm playing Dark Moon Prophecy II, and I'm really enjoying that game!

More suggestions are always welcome. I'm positively surprised by the high quality of the games you're all suggesting!

Thank you Dyhalto and Sgt M! Everlong looks really daunting with 80+ hours of gameplay, but I'm surely interested.

It's simply amazing how many great titles are available on this site. Thank you for the suggestions. I'll add Hero's Realm to my list as well! :-)

Ah, thank you! I've added them to my to-play list. I see that BP II is more alike Final Fantasy VI, so I'll start with that one. :-)

More suggestions are welcome!

Hi all,

I recently played Lufia V: For The Savior Part 1 ( https://rpgmaker.net/games/4184/ ) and had a great time with this near perfect sequel to the Lufia games. I've been looking around at RPGMN looking for other complete fan titles worth playing. But I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the projects, and since you can't filter on "fan-games", it's kinda hard to find what I'm looking for.

So. Hopefully you all have some suggestions on fan-games I really should try. I'm mainly looking for jRPG fan games, for series like Lufia, Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Terranigma etc. I'm looking forward to some nice suggestions! Thanks in advance! :-)
