Well, I was skimming through some of the FF fan works and I noticed how some of those fan fictions would be good and suitable for it to be a fan game, whether it uses rips or straight up original graphics and other similar content... correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't really notice that many of you know of programs that can make you achieve your goal of one day of being able to make a final fantasy fangame... I know that this might be characterized as some sort of advertising and hot linking, but I'm doing this at the very least cause I want you to know that it is possible, and it is a lot less difficult than you ever thought it would be... to the point that you don't need to learn any programming at all (as in programming languages like C++ and all that crap).

I have knowledge and experience with the Rpg maker series (since I develop rpgs games for fun using them), but I also know some basic concepts of Mugen (program to create fighting games) and 2D fighter Maker 2002 (another fighting game maker program)...

Well let's start with the links for downloading the programs and a short description.

*NOTE* All hotlinks come from my home game making community: RPG RPG REVOLUTION and some other sites. For tutorials, help, and everything in overall just drop by the community, RRR has a lot of tutorials for each one of these programs.
