Testers

EasyRPG uses a RPG Maker 2000 test game project to see which RPG Maker 2000 features are working fine in EasyRPG Player. This game consists on a collection of maps with some tests inside, e.g.: a map with a lot of characters with "Show Message" command tests with all features (character limits, colors, speed...) of the show message event commands.

Reporting liblcf (EasyRPG reader library) defects

The easiest method to detect RPG Maker 2000/2003 file format issues is by downloading the LCF2XML tool and compare generated XML information with the existing in project database. Also, LCF2XML can convert back XML to the native RPG Maker 2000/2003 file format and do a binary comparison between them. Also, you can generate again XML files for text comparison for easier information loss detection.
