    I had the sudden idea to make an RPG based on the movie "Stand By Me". I made some sprites. Earthbound style. I could do it myself possibly in RPG Maker XP, but I know I will end up giving up part way if I did it all alone. Maybe someone wants to help? [​IMG]? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic but I really enjoyed that film when I was about 13 or so [​IMG] You can count me in! I've been looking for an excuse to learn about RPG Maker for a while now [​IMG]

    You should do it with Multimedia Fusion. It is the best amateur programming language ever.

    I pretty much know RMXP inside out (not to mention I legally own it), so sure, if you're ever unsure about something let me know [​IMG]

    Oh ya Dirtie! Dirtie! Help me make a game. You are Will Wheaton.

    I really want to know how the heck you can make your entire party follow you (like in earthbound) like actually walking along behind the character you control. Cause if you can't do this in RPG maker, then you can't make a game of Stand By Me in RPG maker, period.

    You need a custom script, commonly called a "caterpillar system". I don't think with the current ones that you can control the people following the main guy independently with events though.

    http://rgss-lib.sourceforge.jp/public_scri...train_actor.txt
    ^Go into the script editor, insert a new script just above "Main" but below everything else (name it whatever you want), and copy and paste that entire text file into it.

    I remember creating an "epic" game with RPGMaker for my PSOne. It was about cat's, ninja's, clan's, and jelly filled doughnuts. (Fine there were no jelly doughnuts, but it was still great!)

    Wait.. Who are thous people?

    just wanna say I've been keeping an eye on your blog for this game, looks great
    just one thing that bugs me is how the sprites are 200% and all the tiles are still 100%, I realize this is because you're using rpgmaker tiles, and earthbound sprite edits, which go by different proportions
    so, I propose editing the sprites like:

    edit-
    oh and I love the movie too
