      Pokehero: Did you use the name from Trainernames.txt? It seems like you don't have "Rocket" defined... Or perhaps you're not using the internal name.
      Atomic_Reactor: Essentials no longer uses fightbox.png and commandbox.png. You want to edit messagebox.png instead.

        1. how do you edit the skins in battle? like the thing that says fight,run,bag,pokemon
        and the attacks. cause its the same as the frame skin your using =/


        2. how do you edit the color of the ttext that says "what will XXX do next" its white. i want it to be black.
        i saw it somewhere before, so ill search it. but im hoping someone answering it would be quicker.
        thanks in advance :P

          1) i think that is also the same thing that you had problems editing (the background for that is basically just edited i think or you edit the template of that.)

          2) once again look in the same thing that you looked in last time pokebattle_script thingy. and find "What Will $pokemon Do Next" or w.e and just add attributes to that snippet.

          (once again i am not sure about these answers)

              use the tiles of a lightpost, and then set the event on the lightpost like so.

              set the event name as "OutdoorLight" or "Light" the difference is that the "OutdoorLight" will change according to time.

                Atomic_Reactor, for the first question, search for
                Code:
                @spriteskin=Bitmap.new($TextFrames[$PokemonSystem.frame])
                in the PokeBattle_ActualScene script. Change the "$TextFrames[$PokemonSystem.frame]" to the filename of the skin you want to use (e.g. Graphics/Windowskins/BattleSkin.png), which should in the same format as a standard skin.

                As for the second question, still in PokeBattle_ActualScene, search for
                Code:
                MESSAGEBASECOLOR=Color.new(248,248,248)
                Then edit the numbers in that, and the lines beneath, to the hex codes for the desired colour (between 0 and 255 in the order red, green, blue - in this case, 248,248,248 means white).

                    Did you put quotes around it? As in "Graphics/Windowskins/Skin.png". If you don't put quotes, RMXP doesn't recognise it as a string. It thinks you're referring to a non-existent constant called Windowskins (there's already a class called Graphics).

                        Okay, I need help on a few things...

                        How do you make a wild pokemon encounter(like the ones you would do for legendaries and so on) that you can't run away from? I looked into the notes and tried just about everything but I'm still able to run away from the battle, which I don't want.

                        Secondly, having to do with the same similair problem though, I noticed that if the script command exceeds over the first row of text and goes on to the second row, it registers it as and enter rather than a word wrap(and than when you finally get to the event, the game has an error heartattack and dies). Which doesn't matter for pokemon with very short names, such as Mew, but it's a big problem if it something like... Houndour, which is the pokemon I was trying to use for this.


                        Overall I absolutely love this thing, and I have some VERY INTERESTING ideas with it now(as if I don't have enough projects I should be doing). There's just a couple things I wish to fix/figure out, this being one of them DX

                          It is possible to create Pokemon battles where the player cannot escape, but a bug prevents this. To fix this, find
                          the method "def pbPrepareBattle" in the script section PokemonField, and delete the following line, which is found in
                          that method:

                          Code:
                              battle.cantescape=false
                          Now it should work properly.

                          The problem with script lines is a problem with RPG Maker XP. To work around the problem, use the "expandtext" utility
                          that comes with Pokemon Essentials; namely, open "expandtext" while the Script dialog box is showing.

                              Recently, editing Trainer battles using comments failed to work because of a bug in saving the converted maps. If this is the case, you will see many files named "mapXXX" with no file extensions. To fix it, find the following lines in the script section Compiler (near the bottom):

                              Code:
                                filename=sprintf("Data/map%03d",id)
                                map=pbLoadRxData(filename)
                              Change those lines to the following:

                              Code:
                                filename=sprintf("Data/map%03d",id)
                                if $RPGVX
                                 filename+=".rvdata"
                                else
                                 filename+=".rxdata"
                                end
                                map=load_data(filename)
                              To edit wild Pokemon battles, open the Pokemon Essentials Editor ("editor.exe") and select "Set Encounters."

                              But, I was wondering if there is a certain program used to make pokemon music for games?
                              I have a program i am using, but was wondering if there was anything better.

                                Thanks, I got it to work now~ <3 (espeically love the extended text thing, that really helps a lot)

                                Second question though (which I'm sure this gets asked a lot) will this ever get updated to look more like D/P? Such as just upgraded battle sprites/graphics and newer movests at least. I tried changing some of the pokemon sprites already but they come out looking too big or too small.. Unless I want to have them pixelated weirdly. Changing movests I could maybe do on my own, but it'll just take a very long time.. Not to mention will have to try adding the newer attacks D:

                                    I would just suggest that you get any kind of MIDI sequencer. There is no such program to make music specifically for Pokemon games. GBA games themselves have used certain trackers, but it's easier to just simulate the sounds with MIDIs. If you're looking for 8bit though, then MIDI won't do. That gets a lot more complicated...

                                      graphics: no, you have to do that your self, thats not actually very hard, its actually really easy.

                                      moves: you can do these yourself as well.

                                        please, i really need help.

                                        PD: sorry for my bad english.

                                          I have one question, I couldn't find it in the notes. I want to delete my LandNight encounter list because I made it by accident. And yes, I tried the delete key, lol.

                                            Sorry, the ability to delete encounter types from the editor hasn't been implemented yet. It will be added shortly.

                                              Where do I edit the actual story line. I mean from where Oak talks to you and you choose you gender etc to the very end of the league?
