Hmm...let me explain it in as few words as possible...

This kit kicks ass and it pretty much replicates FR/LG/R/S/E 100%


Thanks for updating it Poccil I just updated MS to this Release and am working on some new maps. I'm also thinking of re-mapping my game with my Kyledove tileset (I Posted it in Game Dev Resources for anyone who wants it)

Keep it up

I tested it, works fine most part.

Two things.
- In the PokéGear menu, the badges (if you talked to the badges-NPC) appear in the background, under the Hero-render in the menu. That's probably a glitch.
- I experience a constant lag. I think this has to do with the amount of resources the project needs, and particularly the tileset (damn its huge right? xD), but maybe you know an anti-lag script... O_o

All the rest, it's perfect. All we need to do is help you out on the animations department.

I experience no lag at all, maybe it's time for a better computer? And yeah, Poccil...just take out those silly badges in the Pokegear.

Putting the answer simple gives me the point, lol. Thanks for that I have decided I am using this starter kit.

Two questions... I hope someone can help me with. I will be grateful for any help;
1. How do I tell when the player has a certain item (for an ingame quest)
2. How do I show how many of a certain item I have collected in this menu;

I've got the foundation seen here working, but actually showing the amount is eluding me...

The PokemonBag class has a function, pbQuantity, that does exactly what you want. You can use it to check for the existence or amount of an item in the Bag. Here's how to use it:

Conditional branch for checking for the existence of an item:
Code:
$PokemonBag.pbQuantity(PBItems::POTION)>0
Script example: Printing the number of items
Code:
itemname=PBItems.getName(PBItems::POTION)
itemqty=$PokemonBag.pbQuantity(PBItems::POTION)
print("#{itemqty}x #{itemname}")

Poccil, there is a glitch appearing. For some reason if you compile your game and encrypt it for releases, some people get a missing character message. Whats up with that?

Please fix And Remember, it only happens if you compile it and Encrypt it, it will work fine if you compile it and leave it unencrypted....odd :\

That was a trick I made in order to access files from the Characters folder as pictures. Unfortunately that didn't work; however I can edit RPG::Cache to make the trick work properly.

Can anyone help me please. I need to get a working version of RPG Maker to be able to use the starter kit. Blizzys kit is working using the Postility Kights version. My trial version as now given up.

I need to know what exactly I need to download to get the starter kit working. I want to start making the first demo for a project I am doing at my community.

How about you actually buy RPG Maker XP?

If anyone encounters problems loading the project file, then it helps to use an older version and to accordingly change the text of "game.rxproj" to "RPGXP 1.01" or "RPGXP 1.00".

Hi Poccil!
First, I thank you for this starter kit you're making.
You're a God for all Pokemon-game makers.
Well, there's still a few things I want to ask you:
-Can you include a fullscreen option?
-Can you make a detailed guide to use these scripts (like how to add attacks, items etc. And how to add the attack description)
-Can you make a guide on how to use the Animation Editor?

Well, I know this isn't so easy for you but if you can do it we'll be very grateful to you.

Thanks in advance...
Goodbye

The problem is that the second event page is based on a parallel process trigger.

As I realized not long ago, my custom message system can cause the game to freeze if a text event command is placed on an event page with a parallel process trigger. In fact, I don't tend to recommend placing text event commands or other commands that require user input on such event pages. The fix for this problem is to augment Event Page 1:

Code:
Conditional Branch:  Script:  pbTrainerBattle ...
  Text:  Dang oh well you won...
  Script:  $Trainer.badges[0]=true
  Control Self Switch:  A =ON
End Branch
After doing so, Event Page 3's self switch can be changed to A instead of B and Event Page 2 can be deleted.

I have some questions about the features, if someone dosen't mind answering them for me.

1) Are IVs and EVs added to the starter kit, also base stats for every single Pokemon?

2) Are natures and abilities added to the start kit, with the same powers of the GBA games?

3) Can you add shiny Pokemon, I am guessing you can by the sprites in the pack?

4) What PokeFeature as been added or is avalable, i.e PokeGear etc. What is in the starter kit and works?

5) Can Pokemon have hold items?

6) Dose the PC work? Hall of Fame, Pokemon Storage, Item Storage etc?

Thanks in advance to anyone who answers my questions.

I always hate posting in here bothering you Poccil. lol im sure you get tons of questions now. lol

Anyway, the way i use this kit is i copy all the important things from your demo into my file folder instead of copying my important stuff to yours, so the switches you have set for the kit are already used as other things in my game so i was wondering where i could change those in the script file so that everything still works, for example the starting over switch where is that set? i hope you understand. thanks you in advance this kit is awsome.

1. Pokemon's stats are calculated exactly as they are in the games, thus they have Individual Values and Effort Values. Base stats for each Pokemon are defined in PBS/pokemon.txt . That file is designed so new Pokemon can easily be created.

2. Yes.

3. Yes. There is a possibility to meet wild shiny Pokemon in the games.

4. There is the Pokedex and PokeGear, as well as the bag, shops, PC, and Pokemon Center.

5. Yes they can. You can try it for yourself by selecting a Pokemon and choosing Item.

6. Only Pokemon storage is supported in the PC system. Item storage is not necessary because it's easier to increase the bag's maximum size.

Minorthreat0987:

The constant STARTING_OVER_SWITCH as well as other important constants are defined at the top of the script section PokemonField. Also note that the variables numbered 1 through 25 are reserved by the game system and should not be used by custom games.

Due to a request I have made a short guide on using the animation editor.
