Wow thank you very much! All the tuto that I found were about rpg maker mv, it's definitely more easy with xp apparently! But is it possible to make parallax backgrounds with xp? I mean, I would like to make a background like sky or whatever behind the actual playable terrain, is it possible? such as what we can see in the game "Ara fell"  
DantonSlip's avatar
You're welcome! But for the background I'm not sure but there is maybe a script which can allows you to do that.

...You know what? I'd been trying to figure out parallax mapping for a while now, and I gotta say, I think this is a FAR easier solution.
Not ideal, but definitely worth the extra effort.
Thanks a bundle!

Great works. Can you say where did you take all this trees?
DantonSlip's avatar
Thanks ! That's the basics trees you can find with the original assets of RPG Maker XP :)

Great work ! Btw, how do you do parallax mapping with XP? I think it's only available in VX/A and MV :/
DantonSlip's avatar
Thanks !

I cut my different pictures and assemble them on a new template for RMXP. Then, I just have to prepare each tile in the editor (if the player can walk on it or not) and I put all of that in the map editor on the different layers. 

Here is an early footage. www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0uY2G…
-> Btw, In this footage, I just found a script to handles the fogs differently. So, there is an ugly test of water. I've fixed it since. I will show that later. :)

Thanks for replying! And could you let me know where I could get the water wheel ? :P

You're welcome !

It was made for the game by a friend of me :)

Dude! That is so freaking cool.
DantonSlip's avatar
Thanks a lot ! ;)

Wonderful job on the light effects ! Try to avoid the waters autotiles doe. They create a stair effect that is not on the same skill level as the rest of the map !
Good luck, I hope to see more soon, it's promising !
DantonSlip's avatar
Thanks a Lot ! 

Yeah, I know for the water, that's one of my weakness. ^^' Somebody gave me a script to make a better water, without that effect of stairs. I'm learning how to use it ! And I will test it before because I'm afraid it may lag. So !

Thanks for your opinion ! haha ! :)

I hope the demo will please you when it will be downloadable !

DantonSlip's avatar
Hahahaha ! Yes I have. It's because I really want to create a map in which I could take pleasure to travel. x)

Thank you !

150 layers errrk
J'adore voir l'évolution, c'est super cool ! Bon travail c:
DantonSlip's avatar
Ha ha, merci ! En fait 150 à cause notamment des arbres (et de mes retouches incessantes sur l'herbes que je fais sur plusieurs calques de peur de foirer c'que j'fais) ! :) Mais si t'en mets pas ou moins, ça réduit vite. x) Après t'façon ça s'pack vite ! 

Ravi qu'ça t'plaise en tout cas ! :)
Nyshilla's avatar
De rien. : )
Arrf ouais, je comprends le truc de faire des calques par peur des erreurs !
Ça ne peut pas ne pas me plaire. c:

So it acts the same as a parallax? How does the effect look after that?
DantonSlip's avatar
It does exactly the same. :)
