    I'm not entire sure if the newest version is out, but the older ones, which I consider much better (Mainly because it's much more simple) ones have been around for a while are very easy to come by.

    **Okay actually after checking this one out, this one seems really damn good too, wow. I'm going to keep my eye on this.

    BoneMonkey...unless you plan to read the documentation in the coding of the Ruby System, you don't need the English version.

    The translated version should do you just fine.

    To do the stuff like that, you have to dive deep into their coding system. Don't expect to do stuff like that off the bat.
    Thanks for bringing the full version of this to my attention though. Me and my friends love messing with the RPG Maker.

    Yeah. All the options that matter, like the events, are still in Japanese. Can't read jack, so I'm just going to wait it out.

    May I suggest, Multi Media Fusion?
    You can create just about anything with that. Very contained and simplified system. Still takes some getting used to though, its popwerfull enough to make any 2D application with enough work.

    Theres also Gamemaker.
    Dont forget C ++
    Theres RPG makers for the GBA and Playstation.
    Theres older RPG makers for the PC. I've played with em, their ok.
    Theres Dream Studio for the dreamcast. Its a weird RPG like game maker prog.

    Oh and then theres always flash.
    You could grab the Wiicade.com API and code a game that can run on the Wii.
    Theres tutorials everywhere for flash.

    RPG maker though, I personally think its a waist of time unless you really wanna mess with that coding and the like.
    Youd be better off coding something from scratch or using something like Multi Media Fusion to make it easier using its engine.

    Oh ya, and RPG maker used to be free before its 2004 release, or was it 2003? I forget.

    Good luck with it though, but I think you'll be in for a long wait for the english version.
