Frequently Asked Questions #2

These are answers to some of the simpler questions about RPG Maker I’m asked on a regular basis. Some of these have been taken from Yahoo! Answers. Many of them have been taken from IM’d questions or targeted keywords at Statcounter. You can find a full list of FAQs here.

Is it possible to add scripts to RM2K3?

No, it isn’t. RM2K3 has no support for scripts, unlike RMXP and RMVX because they utilise the Ruby Gaming Script System (RGSS) engine already built into its structure. RM2K3 can only use “scripts” from events – normal events or common events – using the event commands.

Is there an Enter/Exit Vehicle glitch?

Yes and no. RM2K3 only supports three vehicles at once, predefined in the Database (under System), which are then used on the map either through eventing or “Place Vehicle Starting Position”. It is not possible to simply use an event with a vehicle graphic and use the “Enter or Exit Vehicle” event command. (Vehicle Tutorial Coming Soon!)

Why won’t the text display in RPG Maker XP/VX?

This happens when a font is used that is not installed on the computer. It can also happen due to script conflicts, changing the default windowskin, or when the text coordinates are out of the window’s range. If graphics transparencies are not set correctly, this can also cause problems with text not showing up.
