 EasyRPG is a project to create a free (as in freedom) Role Playing Game (RPG) creation tool. EasyRPG is a project to create a free (as in freedom) Role Playing Game (RPG) creation tool.
  
-The +The project consists on several tools and resources:​ 
 + 
 +  * EasyRPG Editor 
 +  * EasyRPG Player 
 +  * RTP Replacement 
 + 
 +It is inspired on a commercial product called **RPG Maker**. 
 + 
 +===== EasyRPG Editor ===== 
 + 
 +The Editor is an application with a user interface to design roleplaying games. 
 + 
 +It consists on: 
 + 
 +  * A main **map editor** window where you can draw tile based maps 
 +  * A **database** window dialog where you can create or customize your characters, abilities, enemies, terrains, etc. 
 +  * Window dialogs to edit map properties, trigger battles every steps on map, etc. 
 +  * Window dialogs to add and manage map **events**, to handle commands for this events, display NPCs, messages etc. 
 + 
 + 
 +===== EasyRPG Player ===== 
 + 
 +The **Player** is an application to run games made with EasyRPG Editor. 
 + 
 +Also it can **play RPG Maker 2000 and 2003 games** directly (RPG_RT.exe equivalent). This is the main feature in development currently. 
 + 
 +EasyRPG Player is very portable. This allows to play games in a lot of systems: GNU/Linux, Windows, macOS, video game consoles and mobile phones. 
 + 
 + 
 +===== RTP Replacement ===== 
 + 
 +The original RPG Maker software is not free. RPG Maker includes a shared material **library with graphics and sounds**, used by most games made with this software, called **Run Time Package** (RTP). This material can be distributed only with games made with RPG Maker and only by their customers, so these games are depending on a material distribution only available on Japanese Windows Platforms in the case of RPG Maker 2000 and 2003. 
 + 
 +So if you are using RPG Maker and you want to play a game made with RPG Maker 2000 and 2003 which they are depending on RTP files, you need a RTP replacement due to license restrictions in the original RTP. 
 + 
 +To learn more about RTP replacement you can visit the [[./​development/​rtp-replacement]] development page.
