Tutorial Master List

This is a list of all the tutorials in our forums, organized by category. If you make a tutorial and wish me to include it, just send me a PM.

Also for my benefit in organizing these, if people could use one topic per tutorial instead of doing one topic for all your tutorials it would be much appreciated.

If you don't see your tutorial on here and would like it added, PM Akod.

For New Users

New to using RPG Maker VX? Unsure of how to work those pesky switches and variables? Look here before you go to the help and support forums to see if you're just missing something basic.

Thx, Touchfuzzy, this fills a real need!
scherzo
Good idea, Touch. This definitely will be handy to newbies.

(The Master List, huh?)
Badger
Ahh this was the list you were working on, well it looks good to me
zbdarkflame
Thanks for the list Touchfuzzy, really helps searching this place a lot easier, especially since we now have had an influx of them it seems recently. I was actually going to make a directory for the tuts tomorrow, but I guess you beat me too it. In any case, thanks again, and congrats for becomming a mod. Good luck with that. cool.gif

durham1984
Just wanted to say thank you for organizing these into skill level, lol. I am fairly new at using the program and this has really helped me move things along much more quickly than just bashing ahead myself.
GrandmaDeb
Hey Touchfuzzy,
you know at the top of the forum where it says "graphics scripts tutorials" etc. ??
There are only two tutorials listed there.
Is that because it isn't meant for a simple list, but for a description of each tutorial?

The board is ssssssooooooooo slooooooooow; I had thought it might work like a short-cut to the tutorial section, but of course it didn't.
At any rate, if nothing is in the works for this part of the board, no big deal.
But if you think it would be a helpful expansion,
I am going to try to go through many of the tutorials (to try and fill in gaps in my understanding, actually).
Maybe I could contribute around here by writing a blurb on each one I do -
maybe include what you need to know before you do the tut,
what you will learn,
and general info (style and method.)

It won't be done soon, but if it would help, let me know.
Plus I could direct other newbies to the top of the page instead of to links, etc.

For someone who types with the turtles, I sure do say a lot, don't I? wink.gif

The sections at the top are for people to submit articles. Unfortunately, not many people have submitted them yet (they also have to be approved after being submitted). Anyway, this list is probably the best place to look at the moment, as it links to the tutorials written before the Tutorials ARTICLE section was created.

On the other hand, if you wish to write small blurbs about each tutorial I wouldn't mind including it in my list.
KiTheif
Great List x]

It's nobody has a classic 2D zelda battle system xc

oh well Good Job XD

BigEd781
I wrote a simple mapping tut that you may want to include.

BTW TouchFuzzy, the spoiler in your sig does not work. I have the same problem when I use nested spoilers in this site, so that may be your problem.

Since you ask to send you pms with the links for the tuts could you at least add them to the library? Thanks!

I didn't notice you put the job changer. The minig cart one is missing though. Thanks T-fuz
kittenmomo
I don't know if this is the best place to post this...

However, since this is the master list, I think the answer would lie here.

Does anyone know of a tutorial that teaches how to change the background during battle?

It would be very helpful if you'd reply or at least tell me how >w< Thank you.
Kittani
Is there a way of transitioning base terrains more smoothly? There's always the awkward brown border between grass and desert or desert and snow, etc etc.. grass and snow for that matter.
Jasonicus
Did a much needed update to the list. I am sure there are some I still missed. If your tutorial has not been added, make sire it is properly tagged, then send a PM to myself or Touchfuzzy so we can add it to the list. It can get confusing trying to keep up with what comes in.

@Kittani and kittenmomo, ask your questions in the support forums, please.
GrandmaDeb
You are my hero! smile.gif
Jasonicus
If I had a nickel for everytime someone said that to me...I'd have a nickel. There is still more to do, though. I only went through the first page here. I am gonna go back a few pages and see what was left behind.
The Professor
Here's another nickel. wink.gif

Thanks Jasonicus!

You could also add my pacman system

My two tutorials aren't on their, and some people say they're really helpful (maybe old).

In my sig.
Jasonicus
You're supposed to PM me, which you obviously didn't. I know I added one today, send me a link to the other.
MASH_MX
Jasonicus the link to my tutorial for some reason seems to be broken....???
Should I PM touch fuzzy the link again? or just PM you link?

--- Edit ---

Seems that the link that suppose to go to the tutorial is not the proper link that I provided and does not exist.

>_> I'm not sure what happened there... I might have just put something in wrong... let me go fix it.

EDIT: Fixed... sorry I was at my parents house installing a phone jack and was in a hurry and didn't check the link after I put it in... I just had the wrong topic number for some reason.

I updated the Master List yet again without PM's. The things I do. But seriously, this is the last update I will do unless I get a PM for a script to be added.

...Haha, I said the same thing about two months after I made this list. Seriously... Why do people complain that their tut is not in there when they didn't do what the rules say to do? :/
Svoltzilla
Well you guys caught mine before I even had a chance to send the PM, so thanks. wink.gif This list is one of the most useful things on the whole site.

I have no idea. Sometimes, I get some free time and add newer ones, but I am too busy most of the time. When they ask why the script isn't in the list, I will simply point them to the rules sticky.

I updated this with a bunch of tutorials. If you do not see yours, PM me with a link and I will add it. If you notice doubles or wrong links let me know.

Does there happen to be a experience points and levelling up skills tutorial?
I would like to know how to do that.
Thanks biggrin.gif
Jasonicus
No, there isn't. But, there is probably a script for it. Take a look around.
