Has anyone ever made something based in RPG Maker, re-coded it so it works on a console or a PC as a standalone .exe or something ,and sold it to people? I'm well aware that it's possible to convert the code from Ruby to something more practical like C++ or Java for use on a different platform. In fact, I'm in the process of figuring out how. It actually isn't looking too bad as of right now, although having some past experience with programming as well as having several experts to consult helps. My main question is, has anyone ever released a project and sold it as a normal video game? Did they just make people pay for the RPG Maker project, or did they use RPG Maker as a base and release it on a console or as homebrew or something? Is it even legal to do that? What if someone were to sell a game using RPG Maker as a base, but later replace all graphics and music with original ones, so literally nothing was taken directly from the program? What if they just used the default stuff? Any answers would be pretty helpful. Thanks!
LieutenantPi, in my opinion convert Ruby into C++ or something else it's a bit hard and frustrating, because C++ types variables, Ruby no.
I dunno any program that could create a standalone of a game, but on the Net there are many of this project... There is someone who is trying to convert RPG on VB
but I'm not sure at all and, I repeat in my opinion it's easier to use Ruby
As regards the publishing of your Game, I suggest you to perform a little search on the Net or on the Official Enterbrain Site. I know that you can use RPG XP / VX and all the other version and sell your game without any problem, if I'm not wrong... There is yet another topic that discusses about that question:http://www.rpgrevolution.com/forums/index....showtopic=55317
