The programming language Ruby is still implemented, and the game's default programming has been overhauled to allow more freedom to those scripting in new features.
One notable disadvantage from the previous version, however, is the lack of support for multiple tilesets when mapping, leaving the player with only a finite number of unique tiles with which to depict all the game's environments.
RPG Maker VX, also referred to as RMVX, its Japanese release date was Dec.
27 2007, and official release date in America was February 29, 2008.
Unlike RM95, which can only use one 'set', RM2k can use an unlimited number of sprite sheets with specific sizes for each type. However, because tiles must be entered into a database, there is a limit on tiles.
This limit however is rarely a problem (normally 5000), and even when it is, an unofficial patch exists which can bump most limits much higher at the risk of potential game corruption.
