I hope this is in the right section. I currently am starting work on a Final Fantasy inspired mashup and need help with porting it to a Playstation disc so I can play it on a PS1. I'm using RPG Maker, either VXA or MV, to create the graphics as my own programming skills are...nonexistant. For those that are not familiar with this program: https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/. Any help would be appreciated. I am not planning on selling this, but might be personalizing a few copies as gifts for friends. Thank you in advance.

You'd either have to implement a new engine for PS1 that reads whatever RPG maker spits out or just create a new engine/formats from scratch. Or perhaps someone already has a similar engine you could use. Having this just work in a couple of clicks on PS1 isn't going to work I'm afraid :).

indeed, an old version of RPG Maker exist for the PS1, but you have no way of making your own graphics and you have to make the game on the ps1, you cannot export from the PC.
I made an RPG myself for the PS1, it took me more than 1 year of work, working full time.

And before you ask, no I won't give you the source code because you won't have the skill to do anything with it, it's not a tool like RPG maker is.
