Major Updates Catchup

I’ve been totally remiss with updates on RPG Maker Times. I’m not going to make excuses for this, but will say that these past few months have been extremely busy with work, various projects and side-projects and a bout of serious flu. This doesn’t mean that I’ve been entirely inactive with RPG Maker itself. In fact, the opposite applies.

RPG Maker MV Plugins

Most of my attention has been on RPG Maker MV, so let’s start with some of the new RMMV plugins I’ve created.

  • Pretitle Movie Plugin - From December, this plugin was no longer officially available, as it is now integrated into the Title Screen Add-On plugin.
  • Windowskin Tool Plugin - The Windowskin Tool Plugin has been updated to version 2.7, which now has Plugin Command options to change windowskins directly from within a game.
  • Title Screen Add-On - The Title Screen Add-On Plugin has been updated to version 2.1.
  • Map/Compass HUD Plugin - Added a new plugin, the Map/Compass HUD Plugin.

A number of the plugins I did release before being updated here were placed on the RPG Maker MV Forum I’m a member of.

Otherworld Updates

There has been substantial progress on Otherworld, although the blog hasn’t been updated in tandem with its updates on Twitter or Facebook.

Everything relevant should be retro-posted, updated and, where applicable, expanded on within the next few hours (at the time of writing this).

Design-A-Logo Contest Results

One of the things I completely overlooked was posting the Design-A-Logo Contest results, a competition I held a while ago to win some FREE Steam keys.

The winner was chosen and the Steam keys were delivered, but I’ve not updated the logo or made any posts/pages or made any announcements. Some time later, I’ll retro-post the results, along with the winning logos and honorable mentions as well.

RMMV Games on Kongregate and other sites

Because RMMV allows online publishing, a number of games have sprung up on Kongregate and other sites.

Over the course of the next few months, I will be showcasing and promoting some of these games.

And I’m seriously entertaining the idea of putting some of the shorter, smaller games I’ve already created with RMMV on these sites (or I may self-host them). One of these is a simple fishing/collecting game, which I may expand before uploading. Time will tell.

In Closing…

Although I don’t have much time to really focus on RPG Maker, I’m determined to keep on top of updates from now on, both my own and from others’ newsfeeds.
