Okay I'm creating this XSE tutorial because none of the other ones work!
I don't think the authors of the tutorials did it on purpose but they don't work.

For this Tutorial I'm Going to assume some things.
  • First that you have read some of the other XSE tutorials like Seth's and Hockeypanda32's
  • Second that you have done super basic scripting with pokescript. Don't worry though you just need to understand what the commands are supposed to do. Not what they did.
All right lets get this show on the road. First you need the following.
  • A blank Pokemon ROM I'm Using Fire Red 1.0 but it's your choice.
  • A copy of XSE DUH!
  • A copy of Advance Map
I'm now going to make my point that the other tutorials don't work.
Here is some code from HOckeyPanda32's XSE tutorial.
Code:
#dynamic 0x800000 'or any offset there you want it to be thats open

#org @start
lock
faceplayer
Message @tutorial
boxset 6
release
end

#org @tutorial
= This is my first script!
you can test this code if you want. It won't work all you will get is an empty message box and the person you talked to won't stay still. That is because there is no lock command instead there is lockall. And the empty message box is because there is no message command instead there is msgbox. SO the correct XSE script would be
Code:
#dynamic 0x800000 

#org @start
lockall
faceplayer
msgbox @tutorial
boxset 6
release
end

#org @tutorial
= This is my first script!
thats all for now since I have to teach myself it will take a while but I will add more to this tutorial. And the people who made the bad tutorials can use my code fix there tutorials and make them work. There will be more lol!

I use the 'lock' command and my scripts work fine.... :\

Also I used to use 'message' instead of 'msgbox' and as far as I know XSE reads both comands....

Even though I understand that you're trying to help I think you should get your facts straight first. You're knew to XSE so you can't immediately assume something and then declare it as law. :\

O...K..., not sure why mine didn't work. It helped a good bit of folks.

There are some things wrong with your tutorial...
1. Use "msgbox" instead of "message". Reason why: Message will not read half of the time.
2. My tutorial has many more commands, (that work...)
3. (I'm not trying to be rude, buut... you got on my bad side with that comment about correcting our tutorials...) Mine does use that code! Do you think I (or HockeyPanda32) would post a tutorial that didn't use the right code??? [/annoyance]
4. Your boxset command doesn't work. O.O (And you say ours don't work...)

Seriously, you probably just made a typo, then got mad, and then posted saying ours' didn't work, when they do, while you were just mad because you never knew you made a simple typo that caused the script not to work.

Well, well... What do we have here? Another XSE tutorial... What the? Do you even get tired? All tutorials basically tell the same thing, plus yours is just too little and its not like your scripting is too good. The code for your script can be optimized, so just stick to using a callstd/boxset 0x2 which has a automatic lock & release built in by the game, so don't teach people the wrong thing you're just wasting server space and your time. The bottomline is don't go teaching people when you're not ready -.-" You can flame back if you want.

Quote:
#org @Start
msgbox @text
boxset 0x2
end

#org @text
= ...
Edit: By the lockall, locks all sprites in the background... you know what that means?

The other tutorials work just fine for everybody else. :\
I think your computer might not recognize some stuff, or your doing something wrong, like an error in the script. :\

honestly (hope im not flaming)
this is the worst XSE tutorial ive ever seen. And when you said "many" people including you cant get the other tuts to work which inspired you to make this, then how would you be able to make a tut if you cant learn?
and the sample script you left here is like exactly the same as the others so im guessing that maybe the problem's on your side and not the other authors

Hockeypanda's tutorial worked just fine when I used it, it's quite unfair to pick at other people's work like that.

I didn't mean to flame, I just felt it necessary to say this.

No, I don't think it's really flaming to flame a flame, is it?

Hey, a mod should change this thread's name to "MOST XSE TUTORIALS DO WORK BUT THIS ONE DOESN'T" because, well, his scripts aren't right. Also, this is the worst overall tut of anything I've seen at all.

OK. This thread really should be locked (more so deleted ).

Anyways, if you want, I'll personally teach you how to script, that way, you will see that our tutorials Do work. (Although I'd much rather not, but if you're really having That much trouble, I might as well see what I can do to help.) Also, please don't do something like this again...

Seeing as it's basically Spam, Trolling, and a flame-war-starter.

Yes, it was your script settings, not your script :)
