EasyRPG Player

EasyRPG Player is a game interpreter to play RPG Maker 2000, 2003 and EasyRPG games. It uses the LCF parser library (liblcf) to read RPG Maker game data.

EasyRPG Player is part of the EasyRPG Project. More information is available at the project website: https://easyrpg.org/

Documentation

Documentation is available at the documentation wiki: https://wiki.easyrpg.org

Requirements

minimal / required

  • liblcf for RPG Maker data reading. https://github.com/EasyRPG/liblcf
  • SDL2 for screen backend support.
  • Pixman for low level pixel manipulation.
  • libpng for PNG image support.
  • zlib for XYZ image support.

extended / recommended

  • FreeType2 for external font support (+ HarfBuzz for Unicode text shaping)
  • mpg123 for better MP3 audio support
  • WildMIDI for better MIDI audio support
  • Ogg+Vorbis/Tremor for OGG audio support
  • libsndfile for better WAVE audio support
  • SpeexDSP for proper audio resampling
  • SDL2_mixer for audio mixing. Used as a fallback when none of the provided audio libraries support the format. Due to API limitations not all audio effects are possible through SDL2_mixer audio.

SDL and SDL_mixer 1.2 are still supported, but deprecated.
