Hello, just curious over what’s the current status of the RTP replacement.
It has been quite quiet, no changes recently. You can look at the current state of the RTP replacement on GitHub: GitHub - EasyRPG/RTP: RPG Maker 2000/2003 material replacement
I’ve made some changes to Basis chipset (different water, brighter grass), and want to integrate them into the RTP eventually (see here), but I still need to make other changes to it before it’s ready.
But in general, it has been quite quiet.
For now, RTP is not complete and might not be enough to create a full game. It’s definitely not enough to play existing RM2k games (use the official RTPs for that).
If you need freely-licensed graphic compatible with EasyRPG+R48 / RPG Maker 2000/2003, your best bet is to look at OpenGameArt. The OGA graphics will require some work to adapt them for EasyRPG+R48 / RPG Maker 2000/2003, but it’s worth it. For characters, have a look at ones by Cabbit and Diamonddmgirl (see links in the page linked, too) and ones by Charles Gabriel (already repacked for EasyRPG/RM2k here). For tilesets, just browse the 16*16 tag. And any music in OpenGameArt should work.
If you need help adapting graphics from OpenGameArt to EasyRPG+R48 / RPG Maker 2000 / 2003, you can probably ask on this forum, I can help with that.
Glad to see a mention of Cabbit’s & diamonddmgirl’s sprites. I keep a collection in that style here.
