I know that online play is possible. I've seen the engines, the code, the videos on YouTube.
I would just like to know... what can you do with an online RPG?
Like, would it be possible to set up guilds or parties with other players?
And if you could, would you have to use a real-time battle system or would turn-based play be possible?
Could you talk to or interact with other players?
Would events be the same for all players, or could you make events change based on individual players' progress in the game?
Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I just want an idea what an online RPG using RPGVX or RPGXP would be like.
It is possible to do all of this using either the old and outdated 'Netplay' or the more recent RMXP Online System ( http://www.rpgrevolution.com/forums/index....c=35936&hl=
). However please note that making an online RPG in RPG Maker XP is not a simple task and requires a high degree of scripting knowledge, since you will have to create ALL of the features yourself. It is also recommended that you have a decent knowledge of Networking so you know how to make your game secure. The bottom line, it's possible but like any good game you have to put a lot of time and effort into it, and even moreso if you want to make it online enabled.
