Some people may be familiar with RPG Makers- such as Enterbrain's RPG Maker XP, which allow you to easily and with no substantial programming knowledge make your very own Role Playing Game (like the early Final Fantasy parts, for example).

My question is- Is there a program such as that, which is instead meant to make Real-Time Strategy Games with? (Also as an example to those that dont know, RTS Games are games such as Warcraft 3, Empire Earth, Age of Empires or Starcraft)

All help would be appreciated, thank you.

YEars ago at Borders, I saw a pretty thick book for programming RTS games included with a CD. Something like that is probably your best bet as a beginner although you may need a compiler.

You need to have the Torque engine license as well, but all in all this is a cheap way to get started.

Is there an English version of Enterbrain's product, or is there plans for one?

All I've seen is you have to buy the Japanese product and translate it to English.

Thank you messenoir and Guru Zim for the help on this subject- and ShotGunShep, sorry I dont have a link I can give you- but if you search right I bet you'll find Enterbrain's RPG Maker XP in English (I did)- Now if I could only find the Help File.
