What programs do you use to make games?

I use RPGM2k and RPM2K3

Also if your program can run on Windows98 let me know plz

I've been using sphere lately. Its a great game program and it's free. It requires more actual programming(in javascript) then RPG Maker but because of that its a lot more flexible.

I'm using RPG Maker XP. It's a really good program that alows you to make many things!

Game Making is judt a hobby for most people here, it doesn't matter if you can't complete it, it is good enough if you could do something substancial with it, and if you might want to continue doing it even later.

i use rm2k3 its a really good program

August 28th, 2007, 8:21 PM
I once used rpg2k3 but i quit because i had a hard time figuring out the original battle system AND i will NEVER return to rpg2k3 again because i don't really know why.

Anyways, I'm currently using Visual Basic and i am learning how to use FLASH MX. If you want something that works with win98, use rpg2k or 2k3 or Visual Basic for more advanced games.

oh yeah but basic RPG's are great to use with rm2k3 i will be posting one soon so look out for it

I'm trying to do a online card game with Sphere, but it's a long process :(.
But I found Sphere a good tool to program game systems

I use RPG Maker 2003 to make my games because I have the most experience with it. I have since released 3 demos and currently on my fourth game with the program and would recommand it to both newbies and people who have experience with other game making tools.
And as DrCoolSanta said, gaming making is just a hobby so enjoy it and have fun, and hopefully other people will be able to enjoy your game in the future.

I think I've been using it since around 2004 and pretty much stuck with it. I've played around in Game Maker 6, Sphere and RMXP but still went back to RPG Maker 2003. Again, the reason why I stuck with it was because I have experience with it and just felt at ease using it, but I'm not one of those people who loves RM2k3 and slams every other maker.

I say that you should try each of th main gaming making tools at least once, spend about a day or so messing around with them and see what suits your style.

I like RM2K3 because im an old school gamer and love the default battle systems setup. Im sure this can be changed and even enhanced in other game creators, but im not really a good programmer. I agree though about it being a hobby. It's something fun to do in your spare time. If you are good at it... well it's another story I guess. XD

I'd like to get good with RM2K though and do some special work for people and myself. I use 3d modeling programs alot, and these are great for special effects. So I hope that someday I can be a unique and influential member of an RM2K team.

I use java, as it is pretty universally supported, and very powerful.

I'm using RPG Maker XP, RPG Toolkit and XNA Game Studio...

RPG Toolkit runs on Windows 98 and up, can do Isometric tiles and the normal tiles, I started using this, but I don't use it as much now, I've found RPG Maker XP to be better...

XNA can do 2D and 3D but it's restricted to Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.... XNA uses C# as it's language... XNA can make games for the XBox 360 and PC, However a subscription is needed to make games for the XBox...

RPG Maker XP is a good game-making program and is easier to use.
Sphere is a flexible game making program but is harder to use.
GameMaker isn't such a good gamemaking program and is hard to make a RPG game with it, Unless you want to make a Pac-Man game or any other platform game.
