The OHRRPGCE isn't the only game in town! If it does not fulfill your game-making needs, there are plenty of other programs available. Each provides a different level of user-friendlyness, flexability, compatability and what-not. If the OHRRPGCE isn't right for you, hopefully you can find a program that is.
