RPG Maker Fes Sharing Thread

  • #1 ✎ 416 ElzoBro First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies It's probably super early for this, but I thought for these two months, many of us would be the planning stage of making our games, and I thought this would be a good place for us to help eachother out. The goal of this thread is to 1. Share Ideas 2. Share Games 3. Share Critisism/Opinions Hence the name, "Sharing Thread" I feel that RPG Maker FES complements SmileBASIC perfectly, in that they're both tools people use to create the games of their dreams! RPG Maker FES is also great in that you don't have to download the full game to play peoples games! Just download the 3DS App "RPG Maker Player" off the Eshop, and enjoy! I hope you guys make the most of this thread, because I want to see plenty of great games around her in 2-3 months time! Maybe if this goes well enough, maybe we can hold contests for it, and see the best Maker win, or collaborate on something great, and make a the most outstanding game! Good luck, and carpe diem~!

    Some downfalls. I see no mention of a sprite editor. Or BG tile editor. We will have to rely on dlc to get new sprites and tiles. (How will this play with the free player? Is dlc required to play games utilizing dlc?) No sound editor. No animation editor. I think the big worry here is that every game is gonna be too "samey" story being the only difference.
    If there's no sprite editor, I'm not buying it. No sound editor? I can deal with that. In my opinion, they'll probably have those (to an extent, possibly DLC). They have too good of a reputation from SB to go to the extent of not including mass customization.

    I don't think you need DLC to play games with DLC. That wouldn't really make any sense, especially since part kf the appeal is that the player is free in the first place. Also I think when they said DLC, they meant game updates and such (Although I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of payed DLC down the line) Idk what a sound editor does though. I don't think SB had a sound editor past BGM and the 150 some sounds they gave you. A sprite editor really should be added though, but I feel they may not want to because: A. They don't want to/can't sort out copyright problems from people making characters from other games in the editor B. They don't want to/can't deal with suggestive themes and nudity being drawn in the editor C. The Sound Editor and Sprite Editor are still in the works and will be added iin a future update D. The creators don't know that a Sound Editor/Sprite Editor are big things fans of the game want, so they didn't add them, but they could be convinced to add them through fan outcry. E. They don't want low effort/quality sprites making the editor look bad (Although I seriously doubt this one) I can only hope the creators of RPG Maker FES have taken some notes from SmileBASIC, because they're both similar tools. Maybe if they don't know of it, someone could tell them about it, and say they could take some inspiration from it to make their tool even better.

    I would asume it their shorthand for Festival, but even that wouldn't 100% make sense

    I still don't know what FES stands for...
    I tried for like an entire 10 minutes to try and figure it out and I have no idea. Even tried translating the Japanese title and the only translation I get is "fes". Looking up a definition for fes gives you a city in north Morocco. Googling "japan fes" gives you Japanese festivals in your area. Also, fes in Catalan means time.

However, I did here about a game that creatively used scripts to make a more turn based tactical RPG. No idea what it is called, but I heard about it. EDIT: Also Disappointed at the lack of the currently Japan exclusive Disgaea character pack. lol Would have been interesting to see all the Disgaea Infinite 2 attempts. Posted Edited by Giant_Gamer

    Should we tell him that you can only create and upload 1 rpg unless you pay at LEAST a dollar for more slots?
    Yeah, good idea to tell me. I was not super excited, given how the past two PS2 RPG Makers were. Plus I have the vastly superior RPG Maker VX Ace, and have barely touched it. (it was from a super cheap humble bundle)

  • #16 ✎ 56 brilliance360 First Week Joined in the very first week of SmileBASIC Source Website Spring 2017 Contest Participant I participated in the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Deep Sleep Hidden Website I've actually never played the computer versions of RPG Maker, and have generally enjoyed playing the three games for PS1/2. Each has there own strengths and weaknesses, and I expected this one to be the same. My immediate impression based on what I've heard (the 27th can't come soon enough!), portability is good, size restrictions could be a hassle, but I've already learned to deal with that in RPG Maker 3.

    I feel that RPG Maker FES complements SmileBASIC perfectly, in that they're both tools people use to create the games of their dreams! RPG Maker FES is also great in that you don't have to download the full game to play peoples games! Just download the 3DS App "RPG Maker Player" off the Eshop, and enjoy!
    To sum up everything that was mentioned on this thread, SmileBASIC: +Okay amount of assets, game lets you edit pretty much anything +Price: 10 dollars USD +Lets you upload up to 10 programs for free, paid subscription lets you upload even more RPG Maker Fes: -Very few assets, no sprite editor or sound editor whatsoever -Price: 40 dollars USD (not including all the DLC you'll need to buy) -Lets you upload only one RPG for free I wouldn't say RPG Maker Fes complements SmileBASIC. Maybe if RPG Maker Fes were made by SmileBOOM I would've agreed.

    I said that when there was a lot less information known about it I suppose, but yeah I was wrong sorry. I still think it's good though, at least if you're fine with the assets they give you.

    I definitely agree with you there. It's just too much more money needed to be spent to be worth bothering with, while SmileBASIC is super cheap and has many more upper sides to it.

Express Yourself Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website I think a big problem is: 1: most programmers aren't good at game design 2: most people who can think of a good story aren't good enough at programming to make a game based on it 3: we suck at working together. Rpg maker whatever sort of solves this, but of course they think they can get away with not adding a lot of features just because of name recognition (which is true, I guess, but it's still bad). If someone really cared, they could probably make something better in SB, but really I doubt it. Posted Edited by 12Me21
