I noticed you're at v0.60 but the download link is still only v0.34 - could you please update the link to the latest version?

Hey BHollowell,

Yeah.  We're currently working (when we can) on v.6 but the latest public release is v.34.  The reason for this is because everything from that point on is work done on the battle system.  (This is also all of our coder's work, so I don't know the details on what has actually been completed.)  Apparently this work is unfinished and isn't suitable for a public release.  Unfortunately we're still on hiatus due to other projects which are taking priority right now.  So when there's a new public release we'll be posting it.

Fusions:  Run > Clean Project should fix that issue.

Download links are nothing but adds waste of time!!!

The links are using interstitial ad sites, but you just need to wait 5 seconds and then click "Skip Ad" to get to the download.

Thanks for this! I just started, but is there a tutorial on how to exactly use the files after downloading. Like do I load them using stencyl? Some documentation would be so helpful! Thanks

Honestly I can't wait until this Easy RPG Creator is truly done! I have two big RPG Projects I want to make and it's design to be like console game so they're going to be Desktop PC games when I'm done with them, however I'm quite limited with RPG Maker XP when it comes to features and the scripts will sometimes not work and cause a lot of hassle trying to do the most simple of things like GUI setup for the menus or adding an Overdrive feature for skills.

Hopefully this Easy RPG Creator tool is similar to features that RPG Maker has so I can go into setting up the Events, Layers, and Database settings for my characters. Keep up the good work! ^_^

Hey VirusChris.  Though both of us (the developers behind ERC) are currently attending school full time and I'm now a work at home dad on top of that, we've actually been talking a lot about ERC lately and what we'd like to see in the next stable release.

I'm not going to make any promises here, but we've considered dabbling in a sort of event system that's similar to RMXP or VX.  We like the idea of adding in simple events that you use quite often in RPG's but take some effort to build in Stencyl.  We're still working on the battle systems, though, which will come first so people who know Stencyl can already dive in and start making better RPG's.

I'm glad to see there's still some interest in this extension.  I'll see if I can't prod my partner into getting some more work done on it when he gets some free time this week.

That's cool, take your time. I can wait, your schoolwork comes first and I got PLENTY of games to play and beat first in the meantime.

It would be great to have the "Event System" from RMXP or VX in as I'm used to making events like that, though I'm not sure how Stencyl handles events for RPGs yet (as I haven't dibbled into that much yet outside of the crash course kit).

By the way will the Battle System you have in mind allow you to "pick" the basis of what type you're going for? Like a Side-View Battle System (with or without Animated sprites, though I plan to use animated sprites for battle) or a Front-View Battle System (like XP Default system) for example?

Honestly hated how they had the Battle System setup for XP and VX and I hope ERC can fix that, using scripts can be a mess at times considering what's compatible and what's not. And seeing as it's an extension of Stencyl I can hope you can allow more layer options than XP? VX has the most mapping for fields in that regard and I like to make some really amazing maps for my RPG.

Well than, take care guys! Don't rush it and take some time if you like, I'm in no rush. Gives me more time to play my games and work up designs for my own! ^_^

I highly recommend you play around with Stencyl a bit.  The mapping in Stencyl is nearly identical to RMXP, except with (as far as I know) unlimited layers. (I've never used more than like 8 I think) The battle system, as far as animated sprites goes, should be as simple as importing the sprite with various animation frames, then using the system to tell them when to change animation.  Should be very simple to use. 

And yes, our plan is to allow the player to set up the battle system however they want (side-view, front-view, etc.) along with an action battle system that allows real-time combat.  Adding things like limit breaks, timers, etc. to your battle system should be pretty simple as well and we've talked about adding addons later on that let you just put these types of things into your extension folder to change how the ERC works, sort of like scripts made specifically for ERC so they'll always be compatible.

Again, all this is far off, but we definitely have yours and other RPG fans' interests in mind while designing this.
