Oh, OK.
Anyway, I added two more scripts to my thread: they are a random name generator I made, and a change map view (normal/custom/perspective) script poccil sent me once.

Nice work, Wichu!

Can someone tell me how to update properly? I tried, but then my game changed to an exact copy of the demo! (Glad I made a copy)

I think you just have to move any custom graphics and music over to Essentials. Then if you have no custom scripts/Pokémon etc, copy the System.rxdata, Mapinfos.rxdata and Map###.rxdata files from the original project to Essentials.
In PBS, copy any files you edited (especially metadata, encounters and trainers).
If you have custom Pokémon/items/moves etc, copy those files over, too.
Scripts are harder - you have to carefully copy and paste each of your edits.
Finally, run the game from within RPG Maker. If it doesn't do the "Compiling..." thing, run it again while holding CTRL.
It should be exactly

It works!

Thanks ALOT, Wichu!
Now I can insert your add-ons!

-Edit-

Is it possible to:

- Make weather effects change with the time of day?
Like in the morning, it's rain (20%)
And at night, it's rain (80%)

- Make events appear on certain days only?
Like a pokémon that only appears on Wednesday?

You will receive a private message.

Devil_Silver:

That can also be achieved using a script-based switch.

Trigger: Action Button
Condition: Switch s:Time.now.wday==1 is ON
Code:
Text:  Today is Monday.
The number after "Time.now.wday" can be 0 for Sunday, 1 for Monday, and so on.

Also, making weather effects change with the time of day is not supported.

Ahh, I see now.

But what about the other error? Does that go with the Fisherman error?

ANOTHER Error..

Here, the section 0029 has too many entries in it. Simply remove the extra entry, which here is "Pidgey,2", until there are no more errors.

Hey poccil, when RPG Maker VX comes out, are you going to modify Essentials to work with it?

For one thing, "Ratatta" is misspelled: it should be "RATTATA". Also, there should be 12 entries
with no blank lines between them.

EDIT: After inspecting the data compiler, I realized that it was reporting the wrong error. The real problem was that "Ratatta" was misspelled, not the number of entries, which was probably correct originally.

Another problem:

Normally, when I use the 'Show TownMap' thing, it works perfectly.
But now I use a custom map, and this error shows up when I use pbShowMap:

Devil_Silver: Have you updated townmap.txt with the name of the new map? And is the map position in metadata.txt accurate?

Freakish, I was gonna ask that too o.0

Do you think you will? I think it's basically the same thing to be honest, but a lot of people will be changing to VX (possibly because the screen size has been increased).

I will wait. The thing is, RPG Maker VX (and RGSS 2) are not yet "ripe".

??

Also, Poccil, is there a script for adding game corner coins?

Oh, is there a way to make the window gameboy screenish sized so it looks more like a Pokemon game?

You must have copied the pbPlayTrainerIntroME function I gave in this thread wrong.

As for Game Corner coins, such functionality is already included; see the section "Coin Case and Game Coins" in the documentation for more information.

Reducing the size is one of the options. Select "Option" from the game menu, and set "Screen Size" to "240x160".

Uh..ok..

Here is what I have there:

def pbPlayTrainerIntroME(trainertype)
pbRgssOpen("Data/trainernames.dat","rb"){|f|
trainernames=Marshal.load(f)
if trainernames[trainertype]
bgm=trainernames[trainertype][6]
if bgm && bgm!=""
bgm=pbStringToAudioFile(bgm)
Audio.bgm_play("Audio/ME/#{bgm.name}",bgm.volume,bgm.pitch)
end
end
}
end
}
