Hello All,


I am a user of Pokemon Essentials, and even though I have been using RGSS scripts for a long time, I have yet to learn one thing. Right now, I am trying to figure out how to implement a touch screen feature for my game. Thus, I am looking at the tutorial involving CrazyNinjaGuys Scripts. However, it asks for an update method. Could someone lead me and tell me where the update method for Essentials is located? Or if it is relating to one method, then the location of that? Could someone explain update methods to me?

I am using the tutorial on the Wikia. What does it mean b an update method? I have searched all the scripts for and update method(like graphics.update) and it showed up with like 200 results. Can someone tell me where the update methods are mainly defined? This will help a lot. Thanks

Thanks

Quote originally posted by CrazyNinjaGuy at the tutorial:
Please only use this if you are an experienced scripter and you know what you are doing. There is no point adding this if you can't script, as it won't do anything unless you tell it to.
The scenes in Essentials use the concept of game loop. At this concept, some commands are called every frame, generally a UpdateSpriteHash, update graphics, update input, among other things commands to update things. Here is a guide that explain how a simple scene works.
