New Look, New Forums, Bonus Sprites, Overdue Post

in Uncategorized

Wow! First of all, I’d like to say thanks to all the wonderful people who preordered RPG Maker VX Ace. You guys are great and preorder sales were amazing. Sorry for the time between posts on the blog here, taking care of the Ace release had us all working nonstop!

For everyone who didn’t preorder Ace, it is available for sale on the RPGMakerWeb Store for $89.99. Not sure if you want to put down the money yet? No problem, just go download the 30 day free trial. That is 30 days of  unrestricted use of RPG Maker VX Ace, plenty of time for you to explore the most powerful RPG Maker to date.

Like the looks of the four heroes on the RPG Maker VX Ace splash image? Then I’ve got a treat for you. Shiro, a long time friend of the RPGMakerWeb team and a member of the resource staff from RPGMakerVXAce.net, has created sprites of the four heroes for our blog readers:

Just import them into RPG Maker VX Ace and you are ready to go! They are also compatible with RPG Maker VX if that is your maker of choice.

In other news, we now have Official RPG Maker Forums and everyone is invited. Come hang out, talk about game making, find great resources, and share your games with us! Everyone is welcome to join and enjoy our fun, friendly atmosphere. Along with our new forums also came a nice shiny slick site design. We aren’t entirely done with renovations (I notice my little blog house is still old and boring), so expect some more changes!

Can’t wait to see you on the forums!

    The sprites are very nice.

    Can never have too many nice looking sprites, thanks Shiro!

    Any chance of faces to go with the sprites?

    What is the name of the heros?

  • Andrés March 22, 2012, 9:43 am

      I think I’ve actually seen some sprites of them around, but I can’t remember where I saw them.

        Yeah, y too, but I mean official sprites or something like this.

    I can’t wait for the portraits! And well I guess since the heroes are nameless we can call them whatever we want? I wish ACE was around when I got VX I would have gladly used it. It’s a shame I’m so far into my project on VX because ACe would make it more awesome.

    I hope he makes Mack sprites for em too!

    Hey, I know this post’s pretty old, but I wanted to ask you something.

    When I save those spritesheets into the ‘Characters’ folder, they’re not transparent like the default sprite sheets. When I try to use those sprites for my in-game characters, they’ve still got the green around them. What do I do to fix this?

    (I’m using VXAce)
