I am a 16 year old male that wants to learn to make his own RPG games. I have very little or no money to spend but i still want to make my game so the only way i figure is freeware or shareware products. Can any of you help me to do this, I have found nothin yet and i do not know what i am looking for anyway. Thank you for taking the time to read this post and i hope you will have any suggestions for me. Neonyo Itamaru Yakusta

i started off using an RPG game engine called OHRRPGCE and learned there laug. but that is the only program it will work for. I have not learned any other laug. because i can not go out and buy a book, and i can not seem to know what i am looking for. I decided to try to make my own RPG game with out the aid of and game engine. SO i guess to put it in short terms i have not skills...yet.

Try that link out, its a program that will allow you to make side-scrolling RPG''s similar to the old Final Fantasy games. Little to no programming experience required.

There is a game called RPG maker. A few of them are out in the US, some for consoles(I never used them). But if you wanna make something that you might actually play, I suggest learning how to program. Even then, thats years away if you know nothing now.

If you want to learn to program, let me give you some advice.

Download the appropriate Java SDK for your computer at java.sun.com.
Download the Eclipse development platform from www.eclipse.org.
Start working yourself through the tutorials at the java.sun.com homepage.
Once you''re ready to rumble, get GIMP from www.gimp.org to make graphics.

It''s very important to learn to walk before learning to run. I don''t know what kind of skills you have with regard to programming, but you should start off with the simplest program there is, and expanding your knowledge until you''re ready to make the RPG.

Java? No offense, but if you want any high-level graphics, such as 3d animation, then I''d say Java is quite a bit too slow for that. For fast-executing code try out C (and if you feel up to it, C++); for not-quite-so-fast but much-easier-to-program code, try Visual Basic. I''m not claiming to have worlds of experience with Java, but what I have found is that it is generally slower than C++ and harder to use than Visual Basic.

In regards to my previous post:
If you are interested in programming in any language, then you should buy, beg, or borrow (from the library) a good thick book called something like "The *language* Programming Bible" or "Programming Games with *language*" or "Programming with *language*", and study it thoroughly. This will give you the basics and perhaps even more, for programming in this language. Then begin your RPG, and for every problem you run across, follow these steps:
A. Look in your reference book for a solution.
B. If you are using any add-on libraries, look in their documentation.
C. If A and B fail, come here to gamedev.net and ask us.
Have fun!
