this is awesome, that means I'm gonna be able to make my sprite "comic" more cool now :D.

PS: Are you allowed to use your own tilesets, etc or does it extract them from a ROM or smth?
And another thing is, does it also let um simulate battles? or it only lets u move the characters around and make them talk? although the battles shouldn't be a problem cause u could take care of that with VBA's movie recording thingy

im glad i am building a small fan base i myself will be relesing a animated comic using it after its fully made called Pokeyamum

in response yes u can use ur own tilesets must be of a specific format tho

for the moment no it doesnt simulate battles but i will most proably implement that in version 2 (note all version 1 movies are compatibal with 2) till then you will have to use VBA's Record Function

The movies are watched using the Viewer for now but i guess as it gets updated i can lern how to render avi files thus allowing you 2 export to avi this is a later on feature tho for now you use the "GvS - Player" program 2 watch

zomg :D
I was gonna ask you that, if it was possible to use some kind of script function to play avi's when u wanted it to. I think that's what you meant when saying "play avi's" or did you mean it can now render it as avi?

EDIT: When are we gonna get to try this awesome program? :D

sweet, lemme see... being able to use your own charsets and autotiles (although autotiles might be difficult and not that important). Appart from that, being able to play midi/mp3 (if possible) and make some weather effects, like rain, etc.
These are just suggestions

u can use ur own charsets , facesets and tilesets (auto tiles arnt needed for such small maps because they can be made fast and easly)
Midi / Mp3 / Wav can be played
using 2 sound layers
Ambiant (background music)
Effect (can be used to play narated text or sound effects like a punch ect)

Special Effects i shall lookinto such as partical system and rain ect

Seems a good idea!

I don't like the screens very much, neither the quality of the shot, but that won't affect the game itself, will it?

It's not a game it's a pokemon "movie maker" with sprites
and as he said you can use your own tilesets, etc. As for the quality I think it was zoomed 2x and that's why it looks crap, when you put it back to original size it will look as in the game :D

2 but i can change that to 4 in like 20 seconds if u need 4 layers.

Quote:

The quality is bad because i saved it as a jpg lol so no it wont effect the gamov(game movie) its self

Quote:

No that is fullsize 32x32 sized tiles only and the reason it looks crap is because its a jpeg file saved at low quality to naturally the quality of the graphics is lost when i play the gammov on my computer its crystal clear and looks just like the pokemon games.

Quote:

And you should there will be many updates and Gammov's relesed by all kinds of people keep in mind that the use of custom resources such as Tilesets, SpriteSheets and Facesets will allow the use of non Pokemon Graphics so people can make other GamMovs not based on Pokemon.

nice, humz, 4 layers should be enough unless you really want to make some really good special effects or smth, you should add an option for the user to add as many layers as needed (if possible) :D

question: are you allowed to choose the tiles where you want a reflection effect (for the water)?

well the more layers there is the bigger each map file is and im trying to make all the files as small as possibal because we dont want movies that people on 56k's cant download. i shall make 4 layers

As for reflections i will not be hardcoding things like that as there is really no point in doing that being that i have programed in a scripting language anything like that can be programed in by the users things that the user can program in include
-reflections
-special effects ( i shall make a few basic ones but u can make advanced ones )
-Custom OSD ( On Screen Display) like Health Bars ect
-basically there is no limet to what u can have if you wanted you could write a script to sync up a sound when something happens so anything u think off u can make its a dynamic language.

what script programming language is it? smth like Ruby or JavaScript or is it one that you made yourself?
As for the layers o_o there's still people with 54k? :o, 'nyways you can add the feature of adding as many layers as desired when you manage to render avi files because then they will all be saved as one image instead of 4 different

If I want to add scripting stuff like reflections, etc. can I make them and send them back to you so that if you like them you can include them on a future release or smth? :D
