    I few small features for the game have just been added.

    With the help of a friend on the spherical forums, you can now have multiple save files, with the ability to delete them from the main screen.



    {Showing the delete save game menu]




    [Showing the in game save menu]

    These save files aren't basic text files being loaded anymore, they a raw files. which makes the content harder to hack into.

    So you can't change that level 30 pikachu into a level 100 as easily anymore lol.


    I'm going to add in the time played as well as soon as I have finished off the scripting for it.

      Thanks alot, i'm glad someone still posts in here.

      The more people post the more inspired I am to work faster.

      I've now added the first steps of the trainer encounter



      Ignore the other lucas sprite he is just a place holder til I get the rest of the sprites sorted out. I just need to convert them into the right formats and place them correctly.

      Note: I do have the little [!] above the heads, but I can't get a screenshot of it as Sphere's built in screenshot taker won't do it for me lol.

        I know. I just like them to be done in the sphere engine as it saves them under a name based around the date and time so everything is kept chronilogically.

        Another update is, the trading system is being updated to the new secure files as well, so no more being able to cheat your way to better Pokémon.

            That wouldn't work, because we don't use the same save system, but technically if we did then yes you could.

            But I was actually thinking more along the lines of trading In a forum I set up, or sending opening some sort of way to swap the trade files.

              I think it would be kinda obvious in a game with a trading function to include Pokemon that evolve through trading.

                Well, he could simply make a server so people could trade online. He could include friend codes that way....

                But, you should wait to see what Waudby has to say, I'm only speculating x3

                  Okay.

                  Let me explain the trading system a bit more thoroughly:

                  1. First of all, you select the trade option in game.
                  2. The person behind the counter then explains where to find the file whihc has been created, (i.e: the Save/Trade directory)
                  3.You can then upload that file or send it via IM and exchange it for another pokemon.
                  4.Then put the received file into your Save/Trade directory.
                  5. Then when you next go into the Pokémon Center, speak to the person behind the counter again and if there's a new Pokémon waiting to be imported it will tell you.

                  The way it knows if you need to import a pokemon is by one of the settings in the file being called, "ready?", if ready equals true then when you next speak to the person it finds out if "ready?" is set to true. If it is then the pokemon is imported if not then it won't be.

                  "ready?" is then set to false to stop multiple importing.

                      It shouldn't be that confusing. In the simplest form, it just involves swapping a file with a friend and then putting that file into ur game and selecting yes in a menu.


                      That's all the player will see.

                          What do you mean, your own files?

                          if you mean save files, I think it should be possible to play on another pc with them aslong as all the files are there, I can't see why it would cause an error.

                          If you don't mean save files, i'm not sure what you mean :S

                            You could still cheat, either by copying the file, and importing it twice, or copying your save file, and making two files of the same Pokémon.

                              This is pretty good, Waudby! I just noticed this in the Games Showcase, since I don't come over here so often, but I'm very impressed! Having Kyledove's graphics add a new look to the game, even though it doesn't quite look so good with the indoor tiles and the hero.

                              At first, I thought my eyes were messed up when I saw the really dark screenshots, but I was wrong. This is a very good game, and I hope that you keep up the good work. Good Gaming! xD

                                I did think about that already and thats why each file is going to have a code attached to it, and when you import it into the game, it adds that code into an array, and when importing files it check the code against any codes already in the array.

                                If the code is in there, it will bring up an error telling the player that they have already used that file :)

                                If the code is in there, it will bring up an error telling the player that they have already used that file
                                Well, it seems as though you have trading pretty much figured out x3

                                Can't wait to see the next update!

                                  Doesn't stop a player from copying their save file and making two different files of the same Pokémon...

                                  I've got a similar system in my own game. The only thing I could come up with to solve this was to have the game connect to a server, create the file, and make the server record how many times you've made a trade file.

                                  Then, if you tried to do it again with a copy of the save, the number wouldn't match, and it would stop you from making it.

                                  The only problem with this is that I don't know how to code a server that can do that :S

                                    My system will stop people from copying the traded pokemon so they can have two of the same, as like I said;

                                    1. Chooses the pokemon to trade.
                                    2.Creates Pokemon file + id code.
                                    3.Player imports pokemon;

                                    if the id code hasn't been used, add it to the list of codes.
                                    if the id code has been used, tell the player they cannot import.

                                    And people can't just hack into their files as the aren't saved as text files anymore, they are .dot raw files. so that when the user opens the file in a text editor.

                                    All that he will see if random jargon which cannot be decyphered.

                                      Don't bother coding your own, just grab the one in the Systems Scripts folder called "clock.js". Works really well.

                                        I have just coded into the battle system, weaknesses and resistance. I have also added in most of the stats increases and decreases. The only extra i have to add to the battle damage is the bonus you get for you using the same type attack as your pokemon.

                                        Then other than coding in the enemy A.I mostly graphically work is left, and then the status changes etc.

                                        so all in all, it's getting done.

                                          Sounds like this game is progressing very well. This was a good choice of program because most people use RPG Maker XP, and this proves that you can code everything yourself. I'll keep a sharp eye for this. Good luck.
