2007-12-05 17:31:56 - Today's entry in Tsukuru Blog, the official blog for RPG Maker VX maintained by Enterbrain, has revealed the list of available event commands in RPG Maker VX. These commands perform the essential aspects of creating your role-playing games. Some examples include displaying a message, changing a character's HP, adding an item to the inventory, and so on.
Event commands have been a staple feature of the RPG Maker series as users could make their games with these event commands without any computer programming knowledge. However, with the introduction of the scripting feature in RPG Maker XP, the latest RPG Maker released before RPG Maker VX, much of these event commands were removed although they existed in previous RPG Makers. This required users to script in the lost features.
Event commands are also in RPG Maker VX, as well as the scripting function, which is upgraded. Today Enterbrain reveals to us the complete list of event commands available in RPG Maker VX, but in Japanese. We have tried our best to translate these as accurately possible; we will update them as soon as mistakes are found.

The command list is almost the same as RPG Maker XP, with some new commands related to the re-introduction of vehicles in RPG Maker VX, and it allows us to display expression icons. The unknown commands will be updated as they are accurately translated. Just by looking at this list, it is unfortunate that many of the RPG Maker 2000 and RPG Maker 2003 event commands have not returned.
