Anyone else ever play this game. It's a game made on RPG Maker XP. IMO, it's a lot better than most of the commerical RPGs out right now (and it's free). If you want to learn more about it, go to their website:
It's split up into 5 different arcs (though there will be a 6th and final one coming out). It's about super heroes in a fantasy world. It has a lot of great themes about discrimination and freedom. If you guys are interested, you should definitely check it out.
Edit: I forgot to mention. If you're just starting out, you should get the Super Duper Pack. It has all the Arcs revised of the bugs and the difficulty of some of the mini-games were reduced (since some of them were pretty tough). Of course, I'm sure the download might be huge, but it will well be worth it.
Yeah, I played Arc I and some of Arc II, I think. I got stuck in the mansion where the skeleton has to charge into the wall. While the mapping in the game wasn't very impressive, the puzzles and minigames were really well done. Not to mention the characters were very interesting and you could really get into them.
Black all around me, even the water. The water’s not really black, of course. Reflection from the sky. Water’s like a mirror sometimes. Lets you see your face in it, anyway. Reflecting the night’s face, then, isn’t it? Does the night have a face? It must. Otherwise the water couldn’t reflect it.

Agreed. However, I think that in Arc III and beyond, the mapping really improved. Also, the Bull Rush mini-game in the mansion was fixed up to make it less difficult in the Super Duper Pack.
I just finished Arc V. The ending was pretty surprising and left on a cliffhanger. Too bad I'll have to wait for Arc VI now to see what happens. Anyway, if anyone decides to pick up this game and gets stuck anywhere, just let me know and I'll see if I can help.

I've downloaded the Super Duper Pack and tested it to make sure it worked, but I haven't had time to play it. My webcomic, (DungeonLegacy.com), eats up a lot of my time. Just look at how much work I put into the last panel on this page. I also have other projects on the go that eat up my time. I really need to focus my time.
I'll try to slip in a few hours here and there and try it out. It looks like an interesting RPG.

Did you move the Fonts that came with the game to your computer's Font folder? Just open the Font folder that came with the game, and drag it to the Font folder found in the Computer folder. (I hope you understand what I'm saying. It seems kind of hard to explain, but it's pretty simple. I have a hard time speaking computer )
Anyway, hope that works.
Also, you might need the RTP Package found on the RPG Maker XP site

I got the RTP package on my computer now, but it still won't play it.
I managed to download a trial version of wrar, so I can at least deal with the rar file now, but I can't figure out what to do next. So far (I think) I've managed to "extract" it, but I can't find where it got extracted to.

The farthest I've gotten is, when I open it, it says "Unable to find Audio/BGM/Shroud's Theme." Then, when I go to the Shroud's Theme file in the Audio/BGM folder and click on it, it says the webpage doesn't exist anymore.
ps. Don't ever buy anything from Dell. They are evil, evil, horrible people.

That's odd. Do you have iTunes (or some program that plays MP3s)? Maybe you could try downloading the older versions of MotW? If all else fails, I'll see if maybe I could send you a copy of Shroud's Theme myself.

Darn. I still got the same message (Shroud's Theme) after downloading and installing VLC. Thank you anyways, DW and Neo. At least, I'm installing the basic things my computer needs by trying to get this going.
