    Maybe the wiki can explain something. The position of text within a message box depends on that windowskin's dimensions, and there are only 4 sets of dimensions you should really be using. Perhaps that's where you're messing up - I still don't quite understand what you're on about, particularly when you talk about 40x40 pixels (what is this size?).

      At least, no one's complained that it's still broken.
      No one's checked I guess. I'll give you a text explanation and a video:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4mhFX4TguE

      The camera still falls behind, and encounters you *would have* gotten on the ice still occur, but just wait until you land on proper ground and happen all at once.

      Additionally, if you have a really long ice path (and I mean unrealistically long, but I do think it's something to take into consideration), the game crashes with a stack error of random nature.

      Code:
      Exception: SystemStackError

          You didn't mention you were cycling. For some reason any movement speed other than walking causes that problem (otherwise I would make ice-sliding faster).

            I was using this just yesterday, and it seemed to work fine for me.

            It happens when walking for me as well. just much slower, to the point where the game crashes from sliding to far before he reaches even half way to the end of the screen.

            And what about the other bugs such as the system stack error and the accumulating encounters?

            Sorry if I sound like I'm being demanding, I just want to make sure everything has been made aware of.

                Hello

                The game is crashing when the Bug Contest ends. This is the message I receive:

                  If you use Fly when riding bicycle, after you reach in destination your still will be riding.

                  Blue Flute, Yellow Flute, Red Flute and Poké Flute aren't working in battle. To fix this, in PokeBattle_ActualScene, in line 'if usetype==1' add ' || usetype==3'. In line 'elsif usetype==2' add ' || usetype==4'. In items.txt you need to make the Poké Flute final ',5,2,6' to ',5,3,6' or change the effect to doesn't select a pokémon.

                    Sucker Punch work's even if a non-damaging move is being used. I am not sure if all the abilites and move effects are working but just thought I would let you know.

                      The Pokeradar does not work well.

                      When I use PokeRadar the grasses move since it must work, but the majority of the times on having trodden on these grasses does not appear any Pokemon, the chain is cut and I have to use again the Pokerada (after recharging 50 steps)

                      If I use Repellent, the Pokemon does not also appear on having trodden on these special grasses. I remember that in the original game if it was possible to do it.

                        Hey there, not sure if this was mentioned yet or not, but when you use Volt Switch on the last Pokémon in a trainer battle OR when you're battling a wild Pokémon, you still have to switch out to send someone out, and when the Poke comes out, the previous guy gains all the experience. So it still somewhat works the way it is supposed to, but the switching thing shouldn't happen, m'right?

                        EDIT: Apparently, when I used Work Up on my Herdier, I had the option to select my opponent to use it on. Though when he uses Work Up, it does the usual effects. I don't believe I'm supposed to have the option of targetting who to use Work Up on. This was in Double Battles BTW.

                            In a double battle, Lightning Rod still works even after the Pokemon possessing it has been KO'd.
                            One of my players caught it in an LP video. You can see it here, skip to 19:45

                                I may not be replying to all the reports, but I'm taking notes.

                                    I've yet to make up my mind about my future with Essentials, but I almost certainly won't drop it completely. The nearest to that would be that I fall back to an advisory/director/compiler role, where I still put out the releases but they only contain stuff which other people have contributed. I'll have a think.

                                    True enough (it was just the message showing when it shouldn't). I've fixed that, and I've also fixed Air Balloon popping because of non-damaging moves (it shouldn't) because I happened to notice it at the same time.

                                      DOUBLE EDIT: Okay, well, as long as this is here may as well use it for something else I found, or, at least to look into.

                                      I believe Anticipation is working incorrectly. I've got a Toxicroak that shuddered when I sent it in in a double battle against Manectric/Seviper with the moves
                                      Fire Fang, Ice Fang, Thunder Fang, Crunch,
                                      Poison Fang, Aqua Tail, Night Slash, Rest
                                      Now, none of those are super effective against Toxicroak, so it oughtn't be shuddering. I'm thinking, maybe since Rest is classified as a Psychic type move, though, it's shuddering from that?

                                        The bug where you catch a shadow pokemon and the opponent doesn't send out a replacement is still in Essentials version 11. Where is it determined that an opponent has to switch out a pokemon?

                                          You know notifications don't happen when you edit a post, right? It was only coincidence that I saw this.

                                          I've fixed it for the next version; it only triggers due to damaging supereffective moves (which aren't Counter/Mirror Coat/Metal Burst) and effective OHKO moves. Interestingly, Anticipation has never worked against Explosion/Selfdestruct in the official games.

                                          Fixed it. In PokeBattle_Battler in def pbReset, add the line @pokemonIndex=-1.

                                          Turns out what I'd fixed before for this only applied to double battles. This'll fix single battles, though.

                                            I've got a problem with EDITOR.
                                            When i'am trying to add a new trainer battle after selecting first pokemon an error appears :

                                              Don't use the Editor. Edit the PBS file directly.

                                                  That looks fine to me. Make sure you're running your game from within RMXP, and that you're holding Ctrl when you start it (to force the game to fully compile).

                                                    The ability Forewarn doesn't work. Not only does it not work, it crashes the game.

                                                    This is with an unmodified essentials.
