Reasons RPG Maker VX Fail
« on: October 07, 2008, 08:51:40 PM »
Reason Number 1:
Mapping Sucks, plain and simple, you have to be able to solve a rubix cube in 5 seconds to make a decent map on this crap platform.

Reason Number 2:
Lack of attention, nobody likes RPG Maker VX, the only games I've seen for it, are noob games that suck, HARD...Don't believe me? Google RPG Maker VX Games

Reason Number 3:
RGSS2 Sucks, RGSS was fine, I don't understand why you would add RGSS2 as well as make the rest of the platform more simplified...

Overall:
Rpg maker vx is epic fail, it sucks, anyone agree? :)

The engine itself isn't that bad, just the mapping system is a bit awkward of a change. I thought RGSS2 was a good thing. D:

It would be intresting if Entrebrain added more features instead of removing them!!?!

But by changing a few lines of codes they still made quite some money. Hey, for them it works right?

RGSS2 uses completely different modules, but is based on many of the same structures. So likely a script for XP will not work, but can work with a simple modification. For instance, I don't think there is a RPG module in VX, which makes RPG::* obsolete in it. It's not really that different, but if I had the chance to get RGSS2 stable for XP, I would.

Yeah. I completely agree with that. VX has a couple of features I would like for XP (like panorama's in the editor), but the application itself is really just an annoying release. Should've rather been a patch for XP D:

Need scripting help? Toss me a PM and I'll see what I can do.
Also able to help with anything RMXP related. Please do not hesitate to ask.

Some statistics on the RM VX:

99% of the European Community think it sucks
Per VX Project there are about 60 rm2k Projects
No VX Project has won an award jet
Nobody, except some Japanese buys it


So what do I conclude?

Yes, the VX sucks ;)
Long Lives the rm2k!<br />Current Project: Badon Echnat et Moratum<br />Language: German<br />Maker: RPG-Maker 2000<br />Status: 20% (Scripting time:-D)

I didn't know there was such a thing as an RPG Maker VX, what does the VX stands for anyway?

It's not all bad just really awkward, I agree they shouldn't have taken lots of things out (;-; I miss the fogs...) but it's somewhat good.

Also have you've been to Rmrk latley?

Main problem for me with VX (And some XP games) are that they lag really bad for me.

Don't know, just know my computer is old (The one in my room) so I use the family computer to play quintessence and such games.  ;)

But really, VX has some potential.

Eh I believe VX has already failed...It's okay if your new to Rpg Maker...but not if your trying to make a decent game.

I think decent games still be made, not going to argue though just an opinion.

Though I still perfer my XP over VX.
