I think RPG Maker VX should be ported to Linux Ubuntu because it's becoming a more and more popular os, Ubuntu can be fully capable of running it. I hope you guys see my point, Ubuntu would benifit greatly and so would RPGMVX if it were able to run on Ubuntu.

Well, Enterbrain will have to be the one to make this adjustment. Right now, they seem content with only running their engines on Windows.

It is not easy to port a program to another OS, especially when you are talking about some low level code like the graphics engine. There is no money in it, plain and simple, so why would they spend their resources to make it happen?

Yeah, totally not that easy. RMVX has a ton (read: A TON) of issues running with Wine. The only really feasible solution would be to run RMVX within some form of virtual machine (such as using Virtual Box OSE with Windows installed on it), but even that would require a good bit of working around due to the fact that RMVX requires the use of DirectX, something not emulated by virtual machines.

Although I do agree that it would be awesome if RMVX could be supported by *nix operating systems (making it for Ubuntu would pretty much automatically make it available at least to other Debian-based distributions), I just don't see it happening. And I use Ubuntu, Fedora 10 and OpenSUSE 11 myself.

Well then, would you mind telling us how you currently have it set up in Wine? I've never been able to get it to function properly at all, and honestly, I would love to stop having to dual boot things just to get an RPG maker to work. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would be interested.

Sorry to post in an old topic..
I just want to share information..

I use wine 1.0.1 under Jaunty, and it works..
But it can't play midi files, only MP3 or OGG..
Some people say that you need a midi emulation or something like that to play midi BGM..
Despite the midi problem, everything works great.. Still on the process of reviewing though..

So, it's predictable that in the near future ubuntu will have no problem at all running another OS' applications..
All we have to do is wait and help the ubuntu development team on reviewing bugs..

Let me give some info here:

First of all "someone" here said "Wine Emulator". Well, funny thing is that WINE means = Wine Is Not an Emulator! Wine does not emulate anything. Everything gets executed natively, in fact it is a compatibility layer software.
This said, I highly suggest to install latest Wine release. You can get Ubuntu packages here .

About the Midi issue, you can fix it by simply installing "timidity" package: sudo apt-get install timidity

On my system, these are the current issues I have:
- I get a general loss of 15-20 fps
- the editor has some refreshing issues if you don't have a 2d acceleration gpu driver
- the internal html documentation works but searching words is not possible


I have a dream, and that is to write a C++ cross platform 2d rpg engine. I'de like to start it but I need at least 2-3 people to join this adventure... smile.gif

Thanks for the midi info.. biggrin.gif
However, there's one annoying bug which I can't get rid of..
I can't open database editor window..
How did you managed to get rid of that? blink.gif

Did you install latest Wine 1.1.20 release?

Install what? Wine? Or rpg maker? For Wine, I gave the link above. For VX, on GNOME you should be able to just click on it exaclty like on Windows. If not, from a terminal "cd $vx_installer_directory" . Then type "wine filename.exe".

...what?
I have Wine installed, I downloaded RPG Maker VX.
I have no idea what you just said.
I don't have GNOME or anything.
And, what should I click on?

I've a confession to make. I tried to use it, but it was way complicated, so I had to come crawling back. tongue.gif


I suppose though, if you're a programmer, you could make it easier because it IS opensource and what not. biggrin.gif

I haven't got a lot a time to dig into to it but it seems it has some great features. It's not easy to use like VX but it has really some good stuff. However it's not cross platform and this is something I really don't like smile.gif
