Creating your first project
When you launch RPG Maker XP for the first time, you will see a welcome screen that gives you some options to start a new project, load an existing project, or open a sample project. For this tutorial, we will choose to start a new project.
You will then be asked to name your project and choose a folder where it will be saved. You can also change the default settings for the screen size, font, and language of your game. After that, you will see the main editor window that consists of four tabs: Database, Map Editor, Script Editor, and Playtest.
The Database tab is where you can edit the data of your game, such as characters, items, skills, enemies, etc. The Map Editor tab is where you can create and edit the maps of your game using tiles and events. The Script Editor tab is where you can write and edit code using Ruby scripting language to customize your game logic. The Playtest tab is where you can test your game and see how it works.
Adding content to your game
To add content to your game, you will need to use the Database and the Map Editor tabs. The Database tab has several sub-tabs that correspond to different categories of data. For example, the Actors sub-tab is where you can create and edit the main characters of your game, such as their name, class, stats, equipment, etc. The Items sub-tab is where you can create and edit the items that can be used or obtained in your game, such as potions, weapons, armor, etc.
The Map Editor tab has two panels: the Tileset panel and the Map panel. The Tileset panel shows the tiles that you can use to draw your map. You can choose from different tilesets that are included in the software or import your own. The Map panel shows the map that you are currently working on. You can use the mouse or the keyboard to draw tiles on the map. You can also use layers to create different levels of depth on your map.
To add events to your map, you need to use the Event Layer mode on the Map panel. Events are objects that can trigger actions or interactions in your game, such as dialogue, battles, switches, etc. To create an event, right-click on an empty tile on the map and select New Event. You will then see an Event Editor window that lets you set up the properties and commands of your event.
Testing and publishing your game
To test your game, you need to use the Playtest tab on the main editor window. This will launch your game in a separate window where you can play it as if it were a final product. You can also use debug tools such as changing variables or teleporting to different maps to test specific features or scenarios.
To publish your game, you need to use the Game Disk Creation tool aa16f39245
