Title: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on May 22, 2011, 11:38:52 PM
RPG Maker 2k/3 Utilities and Other Useful Programs and Patches

As a reminder, links to the actual programs are against forum rules and should NOT be posted

Howdy, y'all.  Here is a nice little topic to help you find direction in the right patches and extra little programs to help you in your game making adventure!  If you have some that I missed, let me know about it.


Programs



RM2k Specific

RM2k General Utility:
--Oops, this site has a download to RM2k.  Will put link up when uploaded somewhere else!--

Checks for RTP dependencies, makes your game able to be played on computers without the RTP, Edits RM2k fonts easily, security plug-in, and glyph, icon, and splash screen hacking.  By Rast and Anomy


RM2k3 Specific
Nothing Here yet!


Great for Both!

Zorn's RM2k Tool:
http://rapidshare.com/files/106810656/Rm2kTool.zip (http://rapidshare.com/files/106810656/Rm2kTool.zip)

Has a great set of name generators incase you just can't think of anything.  Works for game names, and pretty much any kind of name you would need in the database.  Also has a few tutorials in it, but they're meh.


RMRecker:
http://rapidshare.com/files/106814124/rmreckerb2.exe (http://rapidshare.com/files/106814124/rmreckerb2.exe)

With this nifty program you can use to change a whole bunch of different things you wouldn't normally be able to change such as the game's icon, logo screens and glyphs!


ResHack:
http://rapidshare.com/files/105349822/ResHack.zip.html (http://rapidshare.com/files/105349822/ResHack.zip.html)

Pretty similar to RMRecker in that allows to to change different parts of the game that you normally can't edit.  This one goes a little farther than RMRecker and allows you to edit much more.


Character Maker 1999:
http://crankeye.com/downloads/CharacterMaker%201999.zip (http://crankeye.com/downloads/CharacterMaker%201999.zip)

A fairly well known character maker, its a bit outdated.  But hey, if you want to try and use it, good luck.


Window & Scene Wizard:
http://rpgmakertimes.blogspot.com/2009/05/window-scene-wizard.html (http://rpgmakertimes.blogspot.com/2009/05/window-scene-wizard.html)

Although mostly advertised as an RMXP program, it actually has an RM2k/3 option.  Very useful if you are working on a custom battle system or menu system.


My Window:

Another program advertised for RMXP, it is useful for RM2k/3 projects as well.  Similar to the Zorn RM2k tool it generates names for items and games titles, but has some other features as well.

Dynrpg:
http://rpg-maker.cherrytree.at/dynrpg/ (http://rpg-maker.cherrytree.at/dynrpg/)

This little bugger may be the greatest patch to come to Rm2k3.  This patch actually allows plug-ins for the maker allowing endless possibilities to those with knowledge in C++.  If you aren't familiar, there a quite a few plug-ins around.



I am playing on downloading all of these and uploading them somewhere else, but for the time being, here some links.  If you happen to notice I linked to a site that has RPG Maker let me know (or tell a Mod, that works too I guess).  Happy Game Making!

Damn, I haven't checked out Cherry's site in a while, that PicPointer patch is awesome. Would've been a godsend when I was still trying to make my cbs.

Sticky?
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on May 23, 2011, 02:29:00 AM
That's the goal.


Yeah, I was on the site and started using the Better AEP patch and its pretty amazing.  The 2009 Ultimate thing is interesting too.

This is great. Now they're all in one place. Thanks, AFL. I'll use some of these for my game!

Oh yeah, is it possible to add multiple patches?
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on May 24, 2011, 08:23:08 PM
I'm not sure.  The way that some of them are installed, it leads me to believe that not all of them can be used at the same time.  I think that you can use all of the ones that require the Hyper Patcher at the same time.

Well thanks bot, you reminded me to work more on this!  When I am not about to take a nap.

That was kind of a fail.

Just wanted to direct everyone's attention to this. http://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/11004/ (http://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/11004/)

This alone could easily take half the work out of any cbs and even more of the work out of the a cms.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: Meiscool on August 14, 2012, 04:46:32 PM
Yeah, I saw that one awhile ago. Can't you decide the font with that?
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: drenrin2120 on August 14, 2012, 06:57:31 PM
I don't believe you can, it uses whatever font you've chosen as default. Which with Hyper patch you can change to whatever you want. That would be very nice though, to be able to use different fonts for different text lines.

Post by: Captain Obvious on November 04, 2012, 07:00:33 AM
I know this is a big bump... but well, I've read about these and noticed one that caught my attention, namely RMRecker.

Is there anyone who has tried using it before the link went dead? I wonder if it can edit damage calculations (most notably for skills) and other such things. Basically, just want to know what it can do and if the link can be made non-dead.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on November 05, 2012, 06:30:13 PM
Sorryyyy... I kinda dropped of the face of the earth when it came to RPG maker and completely forgot about this...  I'll get that program uploaded somewhere eventually.  Promise.  Just have Lucas stalk me on facebook to do it.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: drenrin2120 on November 22, 2012, 04:56:13 PM
Rmrecker is a graphics utility only. It edits graphics in rm2k3 you wouldnt be able to normally. It does not edit anything else. Sorry man.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: Terrorantula on January 11, 2013, 10:52:36 PM
*Raise* I was never quite clear if it was possible to pre-patch the default Rmexe  with one of these. . . it would for example be useful to have reflect bugs automatically fixed in any game you downloaded or made.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: drenrin2120 on January 12, 2013, 07:34:01 PM
There is a patch for the reflect bug. Any and all patches stay with your game, even when you zipthem and upload it to a filesharing site.

Can someone tell me how to work Powermode? I'm trying to make a title screen but I don't know how to use the load and exit part. Someone please tell me.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: A Forgotten Legend on June 28, 2013, 12:08:20 AM
Hm, that is a good question, I've never used the patch and reading the readme isn't too big of a help.  I'm assuming that what you do is change the variable 255 to 1 and see if that opens the load screen.  You must have a saved game first though.

So, just go through the title screen choose your new game option and then save as soon as you can, exit the game and then reopen and see if what I said works.  According to the readme, change var:255 to 1 to open save states, and variable 256 to exit back to windows.

ResHack's link doesn't work. It seems quite useful but sadly there is no download. :/

Post by: A Forgotten Legend on June 04, 2014, 02:29:02 AM
Totes dropped the ball on this thread.  You should be able to find all of these with a quick google search.  Also added a new resource, http://www.bfxr.net/ (http://www.bfxr.net/) , which is on online sound effect creator.
Title: Re: RM2k/3 Patches and Utilities
Post by: Felix-0 on June 04, 2014, 08:50:28 AM
I used the ResHack just now, other than that the only one I used was the auto enter/title screen skip patch.

Hello,
I can't find a working link to the font fix. I downloaded the rpg2k on  my new computer and darned if the font isn't just amazingly thick in the message box! Can someone direct me to a working link? Thanks,

by the way these verification letters are hard to read.
