INTRODUCTION
WHY THIS GUIDE?
Truth is I wrote this guide mainly for myself. I downloaded RPG Maker VX and began to tests things until I got stuck with something and had to browse the Net for the solution to that problem. Most of the times, I found a tutorial which taught what I wanted to do. Other times, however, I had to dig in some forums or read blogs. This system worksbut has some flaws: What if I forget something? Let’s say I stop using RPG Maker VX for a couple of months… Will I be able to remember everything, considering that I’m a newbie? I don’t think so. This leads us to... I don’t want to lose my time! Everything I needed to know was scattered all over the Net. And not every answer was clear… Sometimes I was confused and didn’t understand how somethingwas explained until I learnt other stuff. This is because the “information” is not organized. And this implies that… My way of getting knowledge was wrong. Whenever you want to learn something, you must learn the basics first. So, this guide is for me because I wanted to have all the basic stuff covered in just one place, and organized. This guide is also for my friends whom I try to convince tocreate games with me ;-) And, of course, this guide is for everyone who downloaded RPG Maker VX and doesn’t know where to start.
