Over the summer anyone want to mess around with rpg maker? Itd be purely fun, just make a half decent game with some super clichè story. Its not something serious i wouldnt mind 1-2 other people

If you'd really like, I can offer writing advice, at further advisory of another guy, much better than I.

Well, as I said, advisory. I'm very busy with my own personal project and do not have time to devote to something else entirely.

I would enjoy helping but I must admit I have no experience with this RPG maker at all, would I still be eligible to help? Also what other skills would you require me to have?

Rpg maker is fairly simple, like i said its just somethin to do over the summer. As for skills i suppose if you could make sprites it would give a little more freedom but its not needed

Ok :) I can practice making sprites in my free time which fortunately I now have plenty of :D is there any costs involved in getting RPG Maker?

Okay, well I will need to look into the prices before I make the commitment with money being tight and stuff :/

So far the RPG Maker XP impress me :) and some of the stuff made with them is pretty cool, I may get it but still unsure at the moment, if worst comes to the worst I guess I could use the free trial.

Just torrent RPG Maker VX Ace if you don't plan to sell it.

Good idea, why didn't I think of that :)

As long as you're not profiting off of it you're cool. And, as long as you can cover not having licenses if you DO sell it, you CAN sell it. For instance, if you use pirated music software and VSTs, there's no license clearance you have to go through to get your work published into the market, if you go through the right software holders.

Well, I did program and spend over 500 hours developing a game with RPG Maker VX with a team. It was quite professional with many tweaks and it did sell a lot of copies though beta is free. It's basically a Final Fantasy game with the fight system. (FF12) Because it was real time.

i could help however, I'm not skilled with that software... any design like... flash manga/anime-ish videos inbetween scenes or something could be in my track though :P or other kind of photos... I'm sadly not good in 8bit pixels...

8 bit isn't a requirement. Me and my team programmed ground up drawn image sprites in our game and you can place animations into it also so I'm sure there is a place for everyone. Even in voice acting.

ah yh, voice acting I didn't think about. I can work there as well :P I can change my voice differently and even use my logitech g35 voice morpher if needed. So... I'm here if you think you can get use of me XP

Hay I'm not super fimiler with making a rp game but if you have a task I'll be willing to do it... here are the things I can do that could be of some use... I draw (obiously I'm on this site :) , I act (I'm doing several fandubs but I'm also highly involved with school theater and such), I sing (Well I can if needed I can play a bit of piano but I don't count it good cause I've only been doing it for 8 years), I write (I'm a huge writer and have been to creative writing classes and workshops)... just tell me what you need me to do and I could be very intrested in helping... if you don't need me that's fine
