can you show us the script that you used to give the pokemon? because it's saying that there was an error when it tride to run it. (i think)
It's alright now thanks, there was just a space in the script command.

New questions (eventually i'll stop)

1. When the hero whites out, where do i change where he goes - or does he automatically go to a pokémon centre/somewhere that can heal his pokémon?

2. This is just a simple rpg xp question but, when choosing the starter I want a picture of the pokémon to appear above the pokéball. I realise that i use the show/erase pictures commands. But when I try to positiong it it jut appears in the top left corner.

Thanks

1: The point where the player goes after losing a battle is set for each Pokemon Center, as well as the metadata setting called "Home" (set it in the editor, under "Set Metadata", then "Global").

Though this approach is rarely necessary, you can also change the position within an event, by putting a Script event command consisting of the text "Kernel.pbSetPokemonCenter" within that event, which sets it to the player's current position. If you use this approach, there must be another event page on that event with an Autorun trigger and the condition "Switch '0005: Starting Over' is ON". That event page must heal all Pokemon (use the event command "Recover All: Entire Party") and set the switch '0005: Starting Over' to OFF. For an example, see the event for any Pokemon Center receptionist.

2: In the "Show Picture" event command, click "Center" under "The Origin", to make a picture appear centered on the desired point. Also, change "X" and "Y" to specify the pixel coordinates of the picture.

Hey Poccil, I have a question.

Have you already implanted a Contest script in the next version of the Kit?

Or could you give me a Contest script?

Is it a connected map, cause if so you need to make sure every event page with the "erase this event" command has to be "player touch"
I hope this helped!

That happened because of a bug. In the script section TilemapXP, in two places
starting at lines 847 and 867, replace this:

Code:
   if !@priotilesrect || !@priotilesfast || 
      @priorect[0]!=minX ||
      @priorect[1]!=minY ||
      @priorect[2]!=maxX ||
      @priorect[3]!=maxY
with this:
Code:
   if !@priotilesrect || !@priotilesfast || 
      @priotilesrect[0]!=minX ||
      @priotilesrect[1]!=minY ||
      @priotilesrect[2]!=maxX ||
      @priotilesrect[3]!=maxY
And in line 858, change this line:
Code:
     @priorect=[minX,minY,maxX,maxY]
to this:

Code:
     @priotilesrect=[minX,minY,maxX,maxY]

The documentation already mentions how more terrain tags can be added: "RPGXP's tileset editor only supports seven terrain tags. That's why Pokemon Essentials contains a built-in terrain tag editor. It can be accessed by choosing "Edit Terrain Tags" from the "Debug" option in the game menu, or from the Pokemon Essentials Editor
(editor.exe)."

for the server that comes with it...do the players play in game with each other or is it only a server that allows them to trade with each other?

The switch it self has nothing to do with where to put the character, if you lose in a battle the switch will be turned on and you're player will be teleported either to home or a Pokecenter (depends on the fact you've been in a PC before) and then your party will be healed (if you use the "demo- nurse joy event in the starter kit) and the switch will be turned off afterwards..

Oh and next time, if you're not knowing what you do, I advice you not to go and just delete random things..

OK...I have a question for everyone thats making a game. I am 80% done with PokeWorld Online. It is based on Ruby game and I am using all of the 1st generation pokemon in it.

IS THERE ANYONE THAT IS MAKING A GAME THAT ONLY HAS 2ND GENERATION OR 3RD GENEERATION POKEMON THAT WOULD LIKE TO SET UP OUR SERVERS TOGETHER THAT THAT PLAYERS HAVE TO TRADE WITH PLAYERS FROM THE OTHER GAME IN ORDER TO GET ALL POKEMON?

I am pretty sure you should be able to do this, and if not let me know...but...IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PM ME A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR GAME AND WHAT % DONE WITH IT YOU ARE

okay, with the new unown script, i was able to insert the rest of the unown and i noticed three errors, one being incredibly minor. okay, here's what i've found:
1) whenever you enter wild encounter or select the caught unown, there is a small pop-up window that shows a number. im guessing this number is what the unown is numbered. what i don't understand is why it's being shown in-game, in a pop-up window. this should be taken out, because it'd be kinda weird to see this in a finished game. >.>
2) like i asked/said earlier, i looked for a script that connects the new unowns to their respective icons and found nothing. this was found to be true in-game also. any unown icon was shown as unown A.
3) now, i know this is incredibly minor, but for OCD ppl like me, it bugs the heck outta me and probably can't be fixed. the first unown you catch, no matter what it is, it shows up as unown A in the pokedex decription. very minor, i know. but if it can't be fixed, no problem.

well, bug report...reported.
hope it helps evolve this script even more. :D

partyghoul2000:

The debugging message verifies whether the script is working correctly. It does in this case. The documentation already mentions the format of each Unown bitmap:

Graphics/Battlers/201_00.png - Unown 'A'
Graphics/Battlers/201_01.png - Unown 'B'
etc.

Graphics/Battlers/201s_00.png - Shiny Unown 'A'
Graphics/Battlers/201s_01.png - Shiny Unown 'B'
etc.

If those files are not found, the game falls back to its previous behavior.

See "Pokemon Graphics and Icons" in the documentation for more information.
