So, anyone know how to play a animation? :P (Poccil, I guess this is basically directed at you).

I love editing the scripts of this starter kit! I might re-program the PokeGear to make it more like the G/S/E versions.
Finally... someone different posting =P

Is there a call script for the encounter shiny Pokemon anyway? If not, then that, apart from the animation of shinies, is what Poccil could work on?

It would be quite easy to make a shiny animation as-is. Just play around in the animation editor with the original Tackle picture (i.e make a couple of little Tackle pictures fly around the Pokemon like stars and play a noise)

The animation editor doesn't seem to work for me. It shows me a picture, yet I am still in the field.
Mrchewy- Who said it was related to your pokemon? Maybe any .txt file is flawed. You may need to check them all.
Sorry if you are misguided.

Which script page is the one where it assigns a type to each Pokémon? I wish to edit it so it can assign triple types.

I know you can edit that, but it only allows you to assign two types. I need to edit the script page so that I can have three types.

You'll have to edit most of the PokeBattle scripts, the PokemonSummary script, and the Compiler (so you can put Type3= in pokemon.txt) to do that. I may have missed some out though.

Anyone know which place(s) I go to to add a new type? If you need to know, it is the light type.

PBTypes, then edit the image accordingly. I've just implemented a three type option successfully, with my own script! :D

EDIT: I can't seem to get the type showing in the summary. I set Bulbasaur as GRASS/POISON/GROUND, but the GROUND image won't show.

Its not that I can't make it, its how to script it so that it plays when a shiny Pokemon appears. (pbAnimation?)

And yes, If it is any good I'll release it. (Edit: The PokeGear)

Because it gets stuck on "Compiling Pokemon data", I presume it's having problems doing just that :/ lol

As for the animation editor, just use the RPGXP one (read: the one not in-game).


No one has any solution?

These two trainer names are giving me the most stress of all. I can't figure out the problem. They have images.

Just a question: why do you have both? What would be difference between a Team Amber Grunt and a Team Amber Male?

Yes, it looks like the constants aren't scripted.
I don't have it open right now so I can't really help. (Lazyness FTW).

Nevermind, the problem was fixed.

A new one though. All my 64x64 sprites are mini compared to the ingame ones. Why?

Double their size ;) . All the sprites in Pokemon Essentials are twice their normal size (so you can play at 480x320). That means Pokemon sprites should be 128x128.

I am developing a Pokémon contest script for Essentials, for a feature in my game. Any help with it would be appreciated.

Oh, and I need a readable and editable copy of attacksRS.dat so that I can add the contest details to it.

A new version is available.

Changes:

Audio module was replaced with a custom one
More changes to adapt to "Graphics.width/
Graphics.height" convention
Various bug fixes in data compiler
Fixed bugs in animation generation routine
Added option "Use PC" to debug menu
Input module was replaced

For detailed changes, see this diff file.

Explanation of the strange error by Mrchewy:

The data compiler expects the text files in the PBS folder to be encoded
in UTF-8. If this is not the case, please resave all files to UTF-8 and perhaps
removing any square boxes or strange characters that may result.

It's not hard to update, all I do is copy the scripts from the Data folder, and if anything else is updated, then I just copy it over (including graphics and such).

[Edit] Poccil, is it possible for you to make it compatible with the latest version of SDK?[/Edit]
