How much different can you make the feel of a game with plugins?

So some questions about modifying the game through JavaScript. I don't know JavaScript at all, but I do know C++ and have about 13 years experience with it so i do have some programming knowledge. But I want to know:

 

1. Just how much of the game i can change with the JavaScript plugins? I'm not talking about anything really crazy the main thing I want to accomplish is to make a game in this engine but I don't want it to feel like it was made in this engine if that makes sense, for example, I want to change the menu system completely to make it feel unique and stand out, is this possible? I took a cursory glance at the entire plugins section and It seems like I can create my own windows with text and images on them, but how far can i go with it? i'm not too sure what the limitations are. Can i make all menus including the main menu completely different? also is it possible to remove menus?

 

2. The second thing I want to do is change the keyboard and mouse input, its mostly fine as it is but there's some tweaks i want to make, and again from looking at the plugins section, it seems like i could, but I'm unsure what the limitations with this are.

I would say, there are no limitations. Javascript is a language where you can change any code part in the runtime, so you can do a lot with plugins. You can basically edit any already existing class methods, add new ones etc. Even build your own classes. If you have this experience with C++, then using JS shouldn't be a problem for you. I personally use both!

You can check the plugins guides there: https://rpg-paper-maker.gitbook.io/rpg-paper-maker/plugins-tutorials/work-in-progress

And if you have any specific question about it, you can ask here!

@wano Thats awesome, I'm really loving this engine so far, it really has great potential. I'm looking forward to supporting and using this engine for future development!

Thank you very much! 🙂 I also can't wait to have the 3.0.0 released. It's a web version (still available for desktop of course) of RPM that will improve the engine a lot!

@wano So the desktop and web versions will both have the same features? or is the web version going to replace the desktop version?
