RPGMaker is an illegal program(Unless its the Japanese version)
The english version is cracked,The caiman forums also know that RPGMaker is Illegal(The english version ofcourse)So this game might be deleted from here aswell?
Does anyone know if it's actualy is illegal? can [s]he post some sort of proof to that? Forum thereads on athor forums or editorials in obscure e-magazines don't count as proof.

There is another program called RPG MAKER XP.

It is free as long as you don't sell your games. If you buy licence, you can even sell them. Seems quite nice, just search for it in google. I tried it and it was better than "spiffy" then.

It's not another program, Sinke. It's the latest version of RPG Maker. :bleh:
The 2000 edition was the previous version of the same program.

Yo!

I guess you are right.

The last time I checked Don Miguel, he was still in pirate waters. Too much time since then. Well, anyway, I guess everything before XP is abandonware.  :bleh:

Not quite actually, do not believe the 2003 edition of rpg maker is free and or abandonware anyway. That's why you see mostly the 2000 program floating around much more than the 2003.

1. it is only 1 year and a half old
2. it concerns also this page as it is not working the download button here neither.
3. i feel it is my duty to show where the things are not working so that someone else that will have the same will to play, the same games will have the path clear and clean.

To me this is enough to make not only 2 threads but 3 threads (if you see on the list of bugs of abandonia i also posted one).
And even like this i have not received the answer to: is this program, still legal, freeware or shareware.
But don't worry, i will install it and if it says 60 days of trial or not, i will post it again here and at abandonia, as it seems to me again that it is important to have it in both places.
:D  :rolleyes:

The version of RPG Maker 2000 that AR and AB used to host, was simply the program, minus all the game making components.

I actually thought AR used to host the program here, at least I remember being able to download it here without it linking back to AB, I'm sure once the file gets put back up on AB, we'll change the links here to redirect it to the new location.
