If you are a fan of RPG Maker games, you may have encountered some games that require RPGVX RTP to run. RPGVX RTP is a runtime package that contains the graphics, music, and .dll files used when creating a game with RPG Maker VX[^2^]. However, installing RPGVX RTP can be troublesome for some users, especially if they have different versions of RPG Maker on their computer.
Fortunately, there is a tool that can help you play RPGVX games without installing RPGVX RTP. It is called RPGVX Reader[^1^], and it is a simple program that can read and run RPGVX games from a zip file. You don't need to install anything or extract the game files. Just download RPGVX Reader and open the zip file of the game you want to play.
In this article, we will show you how to use RPGVX Reader to play RPG Maker games. We will also explain some of the features and limitations of this tool, and how to troubleshoot some common problems.
How to Download and Use RPGVX Reader
Downloading and using RPGVX Reader is very easy. Here are the steps you need to follow:
Go to this link and download RPGVX_Reader.zip. This is the official website of the developer, çä[^1^]. You may need to use Google Translate or another translation tool to understand the website.
Extract the zip file to a folder of your choice. You should see two files: RPGVX_Reader.exe and RGSS202E.dll. These are the only files you need to run RPGVX Reader.

Features and Limitations of RPGVX Reader
RPGVX Reader is a handy tool that can save you time and space when playing RPGVX games. However, it also has some features and limitations that you should be aware of:
RPGVX Reader can only run games that are made with RPG Maker VX and require RPGVX RTP. It cannot run games that are made with other versions of RPG Maker, such as VX Ace, XP, 2000, or 2003. It also cannot run games that do not use RTP or use custom graphics or music.
RPGVX Reader can only read zip files that contain all the game files in one folder. It cannot read zip files that have subfolders or other files inside them. If you encounter such a zip file, you will need to extract it first and then re-zip it with only the game folder inside.
RPGVX Reader does not support encryption or password protection for zip files. If you encounter a zip file that is encrypted or password-protected, you will need to decrypt it or enter the password first before using RPGVX Reader.
RPGVX Reader does not support online features or external programs for 061ffe29dd
