Welcome

Welcome on the community documentation of the API/GameEngine of RPG maker MV.

I haven't found a good documentation, a start or two which are dead now. So I started making one for me. I think I am not the only one who had searched for it. So if I am making one for me, why not open it to the community and build it together ?

Here you will find a documentation of the code given with the RPG maker MV version 1.4.0.

I want an optimized code !

If you search an optimized version of the code, go to https://github.com/rpgtkoolmv/corescript. This doc should apply to the stable version.

How to make a plugin ?

If you want to learn the basics of how to write a plugin, there is two situations :

  1. You don't know how to program : Go learn Javascript. It's a necessary step.
  2. You know how to program but need some hint of how it works : SumRndmDde's playlist is clear and short.

Where do I find the software ?

There are multiple place. I will give you only two…

The other place are in Japanese (and sadly I don't read it…) or sell steam keys.

I search useful plugins

Some plugins are listed here, these ones are useful for creating, but doesn't add a functionality to the game.
