Actually, I agree with Mattdk. Those are still a bit tiny, even when resized. Is it possible / practical to resize them even more?

weird... the resize is actually 1 tile now but here is the weird thing, 4 ground tiles of the snes = 1 ground tile of rpg maker vx while 1 character tile snes = 1 character tile snes. Unfortunately it is the RPG maker's system that cause everything to get screwed up. I can't make the characters any taller, they are at the tile limit. I can't make the ground tiles smaller because well half tiles don't look that great. When in full screen though the resize really makes a difference and don't seem as puny.

in order for me to make it look more proportionate I would half to remake the land tiles and have different sections for different things. There is two main problems with this VX has a limited tile set number of 5 tile sets, and I'm super lazy. This wouldnt really change anything other the proportions really. I'll make a quick map and post that.

Is this better?

The only problem now is see how far away the charactre is from the wall? That's as close as you can get. Other than that though I guess it looks ok.

Looks much better. The wall-proximity thing doesn't bother me at all. Nice work!

true!

Some things I am not changing, World map tiles (I am NOT re doing the world map right now), and trees. Tress simply because the way I have them set up they are nice and neat and whatnot. Deal with the big trees lol

Man, I might be one of the few that loves scripting. To learn what you can do with VX via scripting. Game looks very good tho, keep up the good work!

Looks great. Now the characters are proportionate to the tile sizes. You got a lot of work ahead of you. You made me glad I went all the way down to rm2k for my new project... But I'm curious to look into VX..

well i bought rpg maker vx... might as well use it. I got it because everytime I try to use 2k there is an error. And when I could use it I got a good amount of a game done and all the chipsets vanished. Guess it's just a matter of preference though as both seem to be able to do the same things :P. vx has self switches and more built in variable functions to make eventing a little easier for people like me. Actuall I have about the same amount of work though because I've been holding off importing tiles haha. I'm really lazy. I hope to have all the rescaled characters by tonight and all tiles by the end of the weekend.

Yeahhh well I get along with scripting like an old guy and a midget. I tend to only find bits and pieces of the code I understand and then edit it and hope for the best.

Anyway no luck on searching for slot machines and I ran into another snag. You can only hold onto 99 of any given item so here's my casino replacement plan.

First there is a game corner. The game corner has mini-games to play. These games will cost you bronze medals which you can purchase. The bronze medals can be traded for silver and gold medals which give you the prizes!
the games so far are:
tetris - self explanatory
pac-man - self explanatory
slime wrangler - catch as many slimes as possible
dungeon crawler - page taken out of DWM, you get sent to a random map and try to get all the treasure chests within the time limit
battle arena - you must battle one on one various enemy groups without magic. The monsters called depend on your level. 5 coins to play win 5 and then double or nothing.

Will the prizes be exclusive to the game corner or would they be obtainable elsewhere?

You can bypass the 99 item count with scripting, so if you want to be able to hold 50,000 casino coins/medals you should be able too - but why would you do it with items anyway? the coin could be a simple variable (or a variable array).

Could be misunderstanding though.

Also, I'm loving the idea of NOT redoing the overworld. It will add a unique touch and perspective to your game.

Also, where did you buy RPG Maker VX? I've been wondering this (I would prefer to own a legal copy as to pirating it). I'm in western Canada, near various store outlets that likely have it, but personally I would order online if I knew where to buy it - and where to avoid buying it from. Haven't gone shopping around at all for it, its not a very high priority.

a little bit of both. It's too easy to beat Dragon Lord with any of the liquid metal items so you can only obtain them post dragon lord, but there are still other things to do after the fact. So far there are 6, yes 6 additional bosses after Dragon Lord. In the actual game there are 5 maybe 6 additional bosses. DQ is being overhauled to the max.

@mattdk: I just got it after the trial expiration ended. Also I stink at scripting :( But this system isn't too bad. As for coins do you mean as in money? That would just end horribly. Also are you good with scripting? do you know how I would go about having to defeat someone in a certain amount of turns?

I have programming experience but no experiences with what rm VX or XP use. By coins I meant casino coins. Thinking dw4. If that's the case they can be stored in a variable. Search for scripts to bypass item limit perhaps? Or store the item as a variable - medals, coins, whatever, could all be stored in separate variables, the only drawback is they wouldn't be displayed in the item window, and would need some sort of independent display. But I'm sure there's a scripted workaround out there already somewhere to bypass the item cap.

Don't feel dumb. Its easy to skip something like that when your trying to conform to an item system and learn scripting.

true, and I'm new to the whole variable thing. When I used 2K variables were just over my head, but then again all I did was make parody games so they weren't in depth or anything.

Update: All sprites have been stretched by 3 pixels. May not seem a lot the previous screen shots of the images speak for themselves. Now updating the tiles so they appear smaller. just remember that since vx tile is double snes ones I had to double up on some items. Rather than one bookcase there will be 2 per tile. same thing goes for dressers and wardrobes just so theyre will be uniformity when placing multiples (in other words you will see 4 bookcases but there are only 2 events to read them). Pots and barrels there will only be 1. Hopefully this will all be done by monday.
