How are you all, dudes?

Here comes my second topic about POKťPC! It's a continuation of the topic I posted last year, but this one is more advanced and complicated!

1-What is POKťPC?
POKťPC is a POKťMON RPG engine made in a pure programming language, and a self-dependant programmed toolkit. Programming language used in POKťPC is Visual Basic. This is a DirectX enhanced engine.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT MADE USING RM2K OR ANY OTHER TOOLS!

2-What is current version of POKťPC?
It's version 1.5.0.0 and newer versions will be added later.

3-What are the new features in POKťPC?
->Added a custom fontset.
->Script-driven actions are now supported.
->Started in programming wild POKťMON battling system.
->In-game animations (non behaviours of tiles) are supported.
->Forelayer of tiles overlapping the sprites.
->Map border like trees or running waves is supported.

4-Screenshots from the engine :



What should I post in my reply?
->Your windows type (XP/ME).
->FPS you see while running the engine (i.e. the number you see up in the screen while you are running the engine).
->Your rating for the engine (0 to 10)
->Your personal opinion and suggestions for the engine (feel free! )
->If an error occured, DON'T POST IT! Instead PM me.

5-Where can I download the engine?
You can download current version from HERE or HERE.

Major Update (1.5.0.0):
1- Supported map connections finally!
2- Different walking modes like running mode.
3- Supported map wraps and gamma fading methods.
4- Fixed speed issues.
5- Wild POKťMON battle finally!
6- Main menu is now available.
7- Tile animation speed issue fixed.
8- New bonus map (LEGEND ISLANDS).

Waiting for your replies...................

I suggest you use a better host because Lycos is poor and unreliable. Sounds like you've made great progress though, I'd love to test it out.

Hmm... the demo ran smooth, although I couldn't move anywhere else besides the town. :D

Just some things...
1. The controls (with arrows) are a bit weird. If you are, say, moving up, and you hold the right key with moving up, then letting go of the up key, you can't move right. Instead, you'll have to press and hold one key at a time...
2. When you use the action key, the words just pop up, instead of doing the letter by letter effect.
3. You can stand on doors.

Otherwise, very neat. 7/10

Please it's only version 0.4!!
These missing things you are talking about are still in make!
Remember that I offer extra programming not using RPG Makers!! :D
Maybe I was bit busy in programming the new tools for programming sphere, and adding new features to the map editor scripts!

I would like to post the steps, but I can't figure out how to download it. Your direct-link doesn't work because Lycos doesn't support direct-linking.

True, the site isn't in Chinese. It's in Arabic. I can still get a general idea where to go, by looking at the link targets, but that's it. In the programs section, it isn't listed. I'm at a loss.

In fact, it's not shutting down man! It's just loading the data but in a black window. So, we may have thinked of Shut Down :D

Okay, as requested by you:


->Your windows type (XP/ME). XP
->FPS you see while running the engine (i.e. the number you see up in the screen while you are running the engine). 64 FPS
->Your rating for the engine (0 to 10) I think it's too early in development to give a fair rating.
->Your personal opinion and suggestions for the engine: There didn't seem to be much there, just talking to a few NPC's. I was expecting to see some kind of early battle system since you listed it as one of the things you'd been working on.

->Your rating for the engine (0 to 10) I can't give it a rating since not much happens yet
->Your personal opinion and suggestions for the engine: It was just 2 maps of talking to NPCS there werea few buildings that you couldn't go in. You should work on it more before you release another version

I think it's great that your doing this. Vb, while considered an easy language to learn, is ALOT harder to work with than the rpg maker series. Anyone who criticizes ExtraOrdinary's work needs to ask themselves "Could I do this ?" The majority of you will answer "NO I can't, I'm too useless and lazy to learn how to." Constructive criticizm, Im sure is appreciated but not blunt remarks like:

Anyways on a lighter note, ExtraOrdinary keep up the good work, I'll be following closely, this looks like a project thats actually going to be finished Good luck !

Don't mean to be a pain but correct english helps alot This is an engine like the rpg maker series but it's sole purpose is to make pokemon games :D So basically think 'Pokemon RPG maker' . . . pretty much sums it up lol I hope that helped

To be fair to Raccoon, ExtraOrdinary did ask for "personal opinions" of the engine. That's exactly what he gave, he didn't like a part of it so he said it.

Well, true, the movement does need to be fixed. Jeff explained the problem earlier in the thread so I wont just repeat what he said.
