Hah. I downloaded the 30 day trial, and hopefully I can just keep making copies of the trial to keep my progress up. I didnt know using RPG Maker XP would be somewhat confusing. I just need to keep getting used to it, I think is what it comes down to.
Well, you can always try looking around the internet (especially at Enterbrain's website) for a free 30 day trial. If you want to use it permanently without having to redownload it, though, you'll have to look for a keygen. I had one, but then I lost it again D:
