oops, sorry my fault. i tried to delete the files and upload them as screens but they wouldn't delete.
i'll probably add another room to the heroes house for the mom but i don't think it needs to be much bigger than it is because the bigger it is the more space needs to be filled up.
Also, daegon i hope you don't think this is rude but what role are you playing in the game development?

I'm meant to be the one ripping/making chipsets along with a different member,
but I think the other members can do that better than me.
So I've also decided to do some coding for some side events (I'll tell you guys later)
and help out the members by doing the things that they have trouble or can't be
bothered to do that much. In other words, doing as much as possible.

ok, i've uploaded them as .bmp's. krazy if you want to keep the pictures you'll have to save them to your computer because they take up a huge amount of space.

Hey, I've uploaded the screens on to the site.
If you can't see them Krazy, try linking to the site.
By the way, the .bmps take a bit more time to load than
the last files.

--EDIT--

Exams have finished and I'm looking for something
to do to help speed the progress of the battle system!
Just ask! For example an annoying piece of code.

when it comes to coding i don't think there's no-one better than Krazy. just to clarify how the lateralshift site works. We can see the site but nobody else can, true? so when the battle system is done krazy uploads it to the site and then we download it ourselves add in some stuff and then upload the new version for somebody else to add to. am i correct?

do you have any idea how long it takes to make a game? and how difficult and time consuming it is to make a custom battle system?

Hey, about the host I found ( the one willing to give webspace ),
should we let the guy host the group project and battle system for us?
Or should we stick with lateralshift? By the way, our host's a member of PC.

That's what I thought we were doing
Daegon, I wouldn't trust anyone else with our hardwork than a remote webhost. A remote webhost won't just remove all your files after he has downloaded them..
If you want to do some side events for the game while the battle is still going then feel free too, just don't do anything too complicated with lots of variables and switches we can't change later.. part of this is the reason below.

Well... The battle system uses (so far) variables: 1-74 and for some reason 145-146.. I think it uses some variables from the 2500 block for pokemon information. Also it uses switches 1-27. Please remember this while making your games.. I am sorry but I can't change those switches or variables now, it is too late and would ultimately slow down progress of the battle..

Ok progress report:
I have been working very hard and now I can display our pokemon's HP. I don't think I can make it rock up and down though.. Just because of the way I have done it.. I am working on the name display and the HP and Level numbers.. But I think I will do the enemy's stuff first.
I am going to put in a nifty little piece of coding to make the HP go down bit-by-bit. As it is, huge chucks just dissapear.

Phoenix, I can't see .PNG's only for some reason.. Wierd because it used to work
Thanks for all your positive comments :D

I appologise for any inconveniences to anyone but I have been a bit sick X_X

Then what should I tell the guy who's offered us webspace?

Phoenix, Meerkat any one of you reply please.

Meerkat, firstly right after I'd written my last post my brother
deleted my work and formatted the PC. So the status system I've
been working will have to be discontinued. Also, meerkat, you don't
have to push yourself if you're sick.

Just in case anyone wanted to know about the status system
here's some info:


1. Just having attk, spd was too boring so I added happiness, hate,
love and some other emotions and also hunger and tiredness.
(also by having this you can make it so you can check the power
of frustration and return and the rest of the attks to see how much
power they can use in their present condition)
2. Also added critical hit percentage (goes along with emotions)
3. Also added mental power (a bit like focus band where the attk only gets
the pokemon to 1HP, but this gauge shows how long the pokemon can
do this)
4. Was about to make the pokemon recovery spd gauge ( time to heal self after
battle-also goes along with tiredness, hunger, etc) but the computer got formatted.
got formatted.

if it's free then i can't see any harm in letting the guy host our game. After all we'll still have the lateralshift one if anything should go wrong.
Back to the game, i'm gonna make a few more maps over the next couple of days and i'll upload screens (as .bmps for krazy) to the lateralshift site when i'm done.

Thank you phoenix
Daegon, Those are some nice effects.. But you will never get them done.
I would've thought you would learn to back up things on your PC after your brother deleted and formatted them. You could at least upload them to an internet site.
I am sorry that your stuff got deleted but your brother is obviously going to keep doing this.. I'm not relying on you for anything in the project so you don't have to waste your effort on something that will probably be deleted.

Anyway those extra's can be for our battle system, this is the public one and we are not changing it.

I am releasing a pre-release demo to a few people, this will contain the battle system, but not the item system or pokemon selection system. Umm I suppose you could use the PC system I made but with no item system you can't use pokeballs to capture pokemon.. It will only be set up to battle wild pokemon and trainers..

Good to see you guys are making progress. Could one of you send me the stuff for the site, in case you're wondering, I'm supposed to be doing the NPCs for the game.

I'm never going to make anything without backing it up
ever again!
Well, time to get in contact with our host
and sort some things out. If things go well, I'll be able to set up
a website with unlimited webspace by tommorow or the day
after.

It's great news that you'll be releasing the demo soon, Krazy.

Yep, I found that out the hard way as well. Now after I do anything significant I make 3 or 4 copies of it just to be on the safe side.

Well, I don't know what's going on either. I'll go check.

Anyway, I'm uploading a short tech demo of
the tired/hunger sys. It's really simple so I finished it quite
quickly.

--EDIT--

I can upload .png files easily. Try again phoenix.

--EDIT2--

Does anyone know how to use HTML?
I kinda forgot.
