Many suspected there would be numerous problems with windows Vista, sadly one of those problems relates to Game makers.

This topic has been created due to the problems already presented, and the assumption that many more will be found. Solutions and known problems will be posted here. If you have any problems, or solutions, then please post them here. I am currently searching the net for specific Vista gamemaker problems and will post them up.

Remember: There are many people who run these gamemakers on Vista with no problems at all, so hopefully there is a way to fix your problem.

Please do not post in the help section if your problem is already listed here and is unresolved.

If you do have solutions, be kind and post them.


Problem: Can't start new projects in 2K3.
Spoiler for:
Error messages: Project creation could not be completed.

Solution:
"in order to make RPG maker 2003 work in vista if it is giving this type of error you need to go to the file exe right click it and click compatibility and then check the box that says " run this program as system administrator" ~ Jinu

Problem: Downloading errors for RPGMaker XP (Postality Knights).
Spoiler for:
Error Mesages:

Solution: None as of yet, it may have something to do with Vistas downloading security system, try changing your settings.

Problem: Testing your game not working.
Spoiler for:
Error Messages: "Says theres a problem with the RGSS"

Solutions: None as of yet.

Problem: RMXP resolution problems.
Spoiler for:
Error Messages: needs at least 1024x768 resolution (or higher).

Solution:
None verified. Despite the fact that you may be running at a higher resolution then needed, try running the exact specified resolution in the error message.

Problem: "Failed to obtain a trial serial number from N Titles server."
Spoiler for:
Solution: Found: http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/22121/t1111218-fixing-failed-to-obtain-trial-serial-number-from-titles-server-error/
1. Go to your root RMXP directory. (Usually CProgram Files\Enterbrain\RPGXP)

2. Right click RPGXP.exe and choose "Properties".

3. In the "Properties" popup, go to the "Compatibility" tab.

4. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)"

5. Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator".

6. If you cannoth check the box mentioned in step 5, follow steps 7 through 11.

7. Click on the button that says "Show settings for all users".

8. Click the "OK" button on the "Windows needs your permission to continue" button, after inputting the password of the specified administrator if necessary.

9. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)"

10. Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator".

11. Click the "OK" button.

12. Click the "OK" button.

13. Right click PSIKey.dll and choose "Properties".

14. In the "Properties" popup, go to the "Security" tab.

15. Click on the "Advanced" button.

16. Highlight the permission entry that says "Users ([your computer's name]\Users)" where [your computer's name] is whatever you named your computer. (Mine is Media-PC)

17. Click the "Edit..." button.

18. Highlight the group "Users ([your computer's name]\Users)".

19. In the pop up that appears (It should be named "Permission Entry for PSIKey.dll", check the "Allow" box for the option "Full Control".

20. All of the "Allow" boxes below the box you just checked should now be checked as well.

21. Click the "OK" Button.

22. Check the box that says "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parents".

23. Click the "OK" button.

24. Click the "OK" Button.

25. Click the "OK" Button.

26. Run RPG Maker XP, and you should no longer get the error message!

27. If you still get the error message, log into the administrative account on the computer (With the owner's permission) and then run RPG Maker XP. It should work no matter what on that account, after you have successfully completed the above steps.

28. Have fun building games with the legal version of RPG Maker XP!

"Cannot connect to the nTitles server."

This is another common problem. Try one of the below things:

1. Check that you are connected to the internet, then try again.

2. Close all other applications (or just internet browsers) then try again.

3. Restart your computer.

4. Restart your router / Switch off WLAN switch and enable again if you have wireless internet.


Random Points:

There may be a problem with DirectX 10 running DX9 programs.

Run the program in XP compatible mode when playing AND when you install the maker.

Try turning off the AERO glass theme.

If the program doesn't work, run it in the Administrator account.

The most important tip: UNINSTALL VISTA YOU MORON.

This appeared to have some useful things in it. I just skimmed a few paragraphs~ 



Running XP Compatible mode:
-   Right click shortcut/executable and go the Compatibility tab
-   Check: Run this program in compatibility mode for:
-   Windows XP (Service Pack2)

Blizzard stepped down and Zypher took his place, I became a mod a few days back, with a good enough reason I guess.

Hey!  :mex:

I've got Vista and when I open up RPG Maker XP Postality Knights Edition ENHANCED it just immediately comes up with "RPG Maker XP has stopped working, we are searching for a solution".  It is already run in the Administrator mode. Does anyone have another solution and also tell me how to do Windows XP compatibility mode?

I think if you have a 64-bit version of Vista there will be a far greater risk of RMXP not running than compared to a 32-bit version.

I have vista in my computer here.
I have had the same thing where once it starts it shuts down the RPG maker.
(i have an XP compiuter too, but i do all my work on that only, I test demos and scripts that i download, here, but vista wont play em.)
What i did was switch it to run undr windows XP service pack 2 and restarted my computer. Once i did that i could run RPG maker XP, but any projects i made or any demos i DL, i couldnt play them.....
................

...........
I just thought of it now im going to change the project to run in XP too. maybe thatll work....
BRB be back with results

Edit---- No it didnt work.......
oh well. ive been looking for ways.

VISTA SUCKS. i hate it... the only reason i have it because i got myself a better computer and it is preinstalled..
so now i have one computer up for XP only stuff. and one for vista  >:( :P

Do you have a 32-bit version or a 64-bit version?
I have a suspicion that RMXP does not run on 64-bit. I am unfortunately unable to test this.

Here's the problem:
For whatever stupid reason, rgss100j.dll doesn't work properly in Vista, so what you have to do is open the "game.ini" config settings in your game's folder using notepad, and where it says

Library=RGSS100J.DLL, change it to Library=RGSS102E.DLL

The game and player WORK FINE!

oh, and obviously that must mean you have to have rgss102e.dll

Edit: Turns out ya still need the Official Version to use the music player, not sure why though...

OK this will make all of this easier!
When you change the config file from 100j to 102e also make the file read only:
1. right click on the config file.
2. go to properties.
3. at the bottom check the read-only box.
4. click Apply.
When you open the project it removes the read-only but, if you put it back to read-only AFTER you open it, it has no problems with saving, so you can mess around all you want till you close it, then when you open the project again, just set the read-only status before you do any saving and you will be fine, IF this doesn't work for you let me know, but that's a big if.....

Well, for me, running it in compatibility mode has worked SO FAR.

If you're an advanced computer user, I could give you instruction on how to run XP as a virtual machine, and launch RPG maker from there, if you have an extra copy of XP lying around. It seems to me that just for RPG maker, it would be kind of time-intensive and space consuming, though.

I'VE GOT IT WORKING!!!!
I'm using vista home premium 32-bit,
if you really want too get rpg maker xp working what you need to do is:
1.buy or download demo from www.download.com,
2.Setup to desktop not original location-c:Programme files/enterbrain,
3.If you bought it then don't forget too put your serial in or it will expire after 30 days.
any questions email me at scheps@hotmail.co.uk.
P.S. PK EDITION DOES NOT WORK!!!!!

This is usual for PK, owever if you're running the legal edition then try switching to PK and vice-versa.

I finally did get RPGMXP to work on my new computer with Vista.  But I'm still having one problem: when I playtest, the character/map movement is very jolty, not very smooth like on my XP computer.  Is this because of DirectX?  Surely the better processor and RAM should make it appear LESS jolty?  Is there a way to make it less jolty?  I am using 1280x800 resolution with a Nvidia card, if that matters.

PK works fine on Vista H. Premium x64, simply change the library from 100j to 102E.

102E... almost magic, eh?

Didn't bother reading any of this stuff but here is my summary of what ive been experencing!

1. nTitles is missing, you are not logged in as a user, only as a guest
2. RGSS file not found, reinstall it, thats what i did.
3. rgss101 (etc) (dont remember the numbers), if you move your program to a completely different computer, this will happen. (way to fix is: reinstall the rpg game from the internet on that other computer and keep your data from your map/game/adventure)
4. Trial has expired, either buy it, or get torrents. I suggest getting torrents, but if your a freak about viruses, buy it. It's $60.00

I'm sorry im bumping this old thread but i recently got rpgmaker xp on my vista cpu. It starts and then immediately quits. The problem i have is that I cant find the .ini file. there is a rgss player file called "game" which i expect is the file you are speaking of but I cant open it right.
 
I even tried opening this file in notebook but cant find the proper line.  Just a bunch of gibberish with a few things that are almost recognizable as a language. If needed I will upload a screenshot.

p.s. sry again for bumping this old ass post.

I got rpg maker 2k3 to create a new project on vista after it wasnt working.

First i put it into compatability and administration mode like deliciously previously explained.

Then i opened rpg 2k3 and clicked the "create a new project" button and changed the project path to the "Project" folder in rpg maker 2k3 in the program files. For mine it says C:\Program Files (x86)\rpg maker\rpg2k3\Project since i changed the location while installing rpg 2k3 in the first place. (except with weird Y symbols instead of "\" symbols)

After that i just made sure the Project had all the RTP in the right place since everything was blank (im not sure if your suppose to manually copy and paste it into your project folder from the main folder but thats what i did) and so far it works normally.

This might be a one person situation that i fixed and might not work for you but i hope it does.

Hope this helps for those who got trapped with the pre-installed gimped vista and whatnot. gl.

I just figured out how to fix Vista Issues everyone was having trouble with. I've not seen a solution for this anywhere. Heres how to fix Rpgmaker XP "RGSS as stoped working" with windows vista.

Make sure the dll files are in c:windows\system32
Goto Control Panel > System >Advance system settings "Under Performace" Click Settings
Goto -Data Excutution Prevention- Click add, and add the game.exe of your game.

Click apply...

All fixed :)

Hey guys, i have windows 7 64 bit and running rpgmaker xp.

I thought i would share with you guys the way to fix it !! I could not find a solution on the net. This is to address the problem that no matter what you do, you get the error cannot open in less then 1024x768 message.


Some people say disable arro or to run in compatibility mode, none really works!!

But what you have to do is this, and it will work. At least it did for me.

goto your programfiles/enterbrain/ or whever you installed it

mine was in C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterbrain

edit the rpgxp application by right clicking it

hit properties and goto compatibility

and checkmark the box that says Disable display scaling on high DPI systems

do the same with the game.exe in the system folder.

I did this, and it works! I thought i would create an account and respond to this thread and give other people hope that you can get it running, up until now, i was running rpgmaker on a windows xp virtual machine i setup! Thank god I do not have to go through that again!

This works but! Everything is rather smallish on the editer and tile map editing screen, i will try and fix it and let you all know what i did. Although it could be my current resolution is 1920x1200 I think if i were to lower it, rpgmaker would open allot cleaner, but that is misc. configeration issues!!

I hope this helps! Also check out my rpgmaker game kingdom of auspiex

I FIXED IT!!!!!!!! :bean:

Here's the problem:
For whatever stupid reason, rgss100j.dll doesn't work properly in Vista, so what you have to do is open the "game.ini" config settings in your game's folder using notepad, and where it says

Library=RGSS100J.DLL, change it to Library=RGSS102E.DLL

The game and player WORK FINE!

oh, and obviously that must mean you have to have rgss102e.dll

Edit: Turns out ya still need the Official Version to use the music player, not sure why though...
This did it for me. Thanks! I had the .dll file I just forgot to edit the .ini file.

Finally I can create RPGs again.

Edit 1: Or not. One of my older ones started working, but the others still don't. I'll get back to you on this.

Edit 2: Got it! Add what Treign said and it works perfectly.
