Gotcha Gotcha Games introduced major features and elements found in RPG Maker Unite such as the companion PiXel ScaLer tool and enhanced character animations. The developers also introduced Emeelia, one of the new default characters. Emeelia is a cleric and serves as a Vice Chief Rescuer.
Read up on more details below via Gotcha Gotcha Games:
■Greatly Enhanced Character Animation! Now with Variable Patterns
In previous RPG Makers at its default state, Character Animations were limited to a maximum of 3 patterns due to various design limitations. In RPG Maker Unite, this limitation no longer exists, and users can now freely create and specify the number of frames and how it is animated, as long as the animation files stay within the maximum image size!
Unlock your imagination with RPG Maker Unite as it is time to make your game characters more vivid and lively than ever!
Make Side-View battles more heated than ever, by adding more frames and/or more awesome animations!
■Map Asset Standards – Now Mostly Available in Dev Log #3!
RPG Maker Unite’s default resolution is set at Full HD (1920×1080), as was announced previously. Naturally, this means graphical assets – visual components that make up a game – would need to follow a new standard to be compatible.
In response to the passionate demands from RPG Maker users that are eager to convert or create custom assets, we are releasing what we currently can to the community! Please find them below in our Dev Log #3 on Steam Community!
■Convert Map Tilesets and Character Assets into RPG Maker Unite
Standards through Official Tool PiXel ScaLer!
Having received permission from the author Nononotyaya-san, we also are pleased to introduce “PiXel ScaLer”, a simple but powerful tool that will become an official external converter app!
PiXel ScaLer can enlarge and convert pixel arts into higher resolution illustrations! With this tool, users can now resize custom assets and modify a little (if needed) to adapt it into RPG Maker Unite’s graphic standards! A great tool especially for those wishing to keep the more traditional feeling of JRPGs!
Please stay tuned as we make further announcements regarding PiXel ScaLer’s official release!
(*The previous PiXel ScaLer will continue to be available for download at the author’s sites after our release as an Official Tool. Users of the previous version of PiXel ScaLer can also continue to use it without concerns)
■Introducing Another Default Character！
As with always, it is time for another one of the default characters from RPG Maker Unite!
So we met Glorianos and Kayore last time – now is time to introduce Emeelia!
Emeelia is a Cleric, serving as the Vice Chief Rescuer on the battlefield healing wounded soldiers!
