    where number1 is the number of the first item of the sequence.

    But if u want to put items with other numbers, u should add a script like

    Code:
    def Kernel.pbRandomItem
    i=rand(100)
    Kernel.pbReceiveItem(3) if i==0
    Kernel.pbReceiveItem(15) if i==1
    Kernel.pbReceiveItem(288) if i==2
    Kernel.pbReceiveItem(341) if i==3
    ...
    end
    in PokemonField and then, u could add the script

    Code:
    Kernel.pbRandomItem
    in your event.
    you are truly awesome. you always seem to have the answer. :D thanks.

      To begin with I have read through the Notes.html and cant seem to solve my problem.....
      I have two questions.

      First : How do I associate the point on the "Town Map" with what area im in..?

      Second : How do I switch between Region Maps ?

      Thanks to anyone with a little help......:>

        i had the same questions. open townmap.txt and look at how it set up. it has two different regions and they change automatically. now to asscoiate the townmap and place your at go to the visual editor and i think its in the metadata of the map you want to asscoiate yourself with.

        now a question some one i forget who its liek 5 or so pages back told me to use this for random weather.
        Quote:
        i=rand(4)
        $game_screen.weather(i,9.0,20)
        but it does all the weather all at the same time. now is there a way to randomaly generate the weather you want. and have it carry over to the next map ass well?

                Oh. Ok... Thanks anyway. Does anyone know a script to turn the character away (90 degree angle Left Turn) if they don't have any pokemon?

                EDIT:
                Found a way

                  but it does all the weather all at the same time. now is there a way to randomaly generate the weather you want. and have it carry over to the next map ass well?
                  I was the one who gave u the answer with the random weather. What I gave u is a random weather generator with all the weathers...
                  If u want to choose randomly among a small part of the weathers, what u need to do is something like :

                  Code:
                  i=rand(5)
                  if (i==0||i==3)
                  $game_screen.weather(i,0,20)
                  else
                  $game_screen.weather(i,9.0,20)
                  end
                  In this example, there is all the weathers except snow (number 3). So, when the random number is 0 or 3, there is no special weather, and when it's different, there is rain, storm or sandstorm (i had forgotten we needed a rand(5) to have i=4 sometimes and have the sandstorm).
                  If u dont want normal weather, u can do something like

                  Code:
                  i=rand(3)
                  $game_screen.weather(1,9.0,20) if i==0 #for rain
                  $game_screen.weather(2,9.0,20) if i==1 #for storm
                  $game_screen.weather(4,9.0,20) if i==2 #forsandstorm
                  (Pay attention with the comments, each line must remain on a single line in the script in the event, that's why I have not put a space between for and sandstorm because if I do, the word sandstorm will go on the line below and the game will give an error, saying that sandstorm is an unknown variable.)

                    Conditional Branches only working once?

                      that depends, if you have a self switch activated in the event, or an erase event in it, then yes, it only happens once, but if not, then no, you should be able to repeat the event.

                          what do you mean you have to change the valuse, and what effects are you talking about?

                            Okay. You may take a look at this in the new Moves.txt file:

                            Code:
                             461,LUNARDANCE,Lunar Dance,10E,0,PSYCHIC,Status,0,10,0,10,0,,Cool,"The user faints. In return, the Pokémon taking its place will have its status and HP fully restored."
                            Notice the value "10E" I underlined. This is the value that determines the moves effect like increase the atk by 1 and reduce the def by 1(in this case, the effect is to sacrifice the current pokemon and restore the hp for another Pokemon).

                            Unfortunately, the current starterkit doesn't support this specific move effect and the value "10E" is therefore undefined (as you will get an undefined method error when using this move). I have to change the value into something like 0 and 1 to make it able to use in starterkit. I don't know whether it's possible to fix this error but I wish I can implement some new move effects appeared in D/P in starterkit.

                                  All of the maps I made are not showing in the editor when I go to the set encounters option. I then decided to list encounters for one of my maps in encounters.txt file and when I playtested it, no pokemon showed up. Can anyone help me out?

                                    As requested by many, battle animations within the starter kit are little to none. i have finally arranged all the battle animations into usable rmxp sheets. (i didn't use animmaker.exe, sorry poccil. i couldnt' understand how to use it) as someone else requested, i also ripped all the doors from leaf green and arranged them rmxp style. the link to all this is right here. the battle animations that i currently have finished will be uploaded slowly, but surely. any help finishing these animations will be greatly appearated. if used, credit is expected.

                                    *EDIT*
                                    i almost forgot that the battle animations (.anm files) will require the battle animation sheets that i provided.

                                      yaoimutt: It's not a glitch. As far as I know, poccil has no intention to add the D/P moves. It is, after all a starter kit. I may decide to make a tutorial explaining the basics of adding new moves, so anyone who wants to make D/P moves will have the ability to do so.

                                      Poccil, if you do plan on adding to D/P moves, please PM me first.

And i want to know more two things, how to appear the name of the map in the top of the screen when i enter the map, and how to connect two maps.

                                          Sorry about my poor english! I'm brasilian.

                                            that depends, if you have a self switch activated in the event, or an erase event in it, then yes, it only happens once, but if not, then no, you should be able to repeat the event.
                                            This is what it looks like:

                                            I'm not a scripter guy so I have no idea...
