    Okay, I need help on like a hundred things. Some of them are stuff I even asked for in the past that I don't think ever got answered.

    1. Trying to change the battle interface to look like DPP. I have most of the rips I need(unless I want to switch over to Platinum instead), but nothing is lining up to where it needs to be. I don't really know where to edit that.
    2. How do you change the speed of how fast the scrolling is at the start of every battle(with the enemy sprite starting at the left and goes to the right, and the 'you' going from the left over to the right). I tried clocking it and it's even slower than the how it was in the GBA games, and it just drives me nuts x_x

    3. Shinies!
    Quote:
    def makeShiny
    rnd=rand(65536)
    rnd|=(rnd<<16)
    rnd|=rand(8)
    @personalID=rnd^@trainerID
    calcStats
    end
    I was so so happy when I found this. I just want to know, if I just wanted to change the ratio to something like 1/1000 or so, could I change the 65536 number and just delete everything else? I don't really care about ID numbers or personality values since I probably won't have trading at all. Also I'm hoping to make a second set of shinies, which I know requires some copy and pasting of all the shiny scripts and editing them, but I'm not sure where all the scripts even are(there seriously needs to be a search function in that thing >.>). And probably just need help differentiating the two anyway. x_x


    ... There's some other stuff too, but I'll just leave it at for now.

    Relevant Advertising!

        Could you be a little more specific? In order to change the interface, you just have to replace their graphics in the Pictures folder. If they are not lined up in the position you want, I believe you can edit the x and y values in the PokeBattle_ActualScene section of your scripts. Not sure if that helps!

          You can edit the battle scene look in the script "PokeBattle_ActualScene". If you scroll through the script, you will go to referencess that are labelled in purple such as:
          Code:
          @databox=BitmapCache.load_bitmap("Graphics/Pictures/singlePlayerBox.png")
               @spriteX=256
               @spriteY=149+yoffset
               @showhp=true
               @showexp=true
               @statusCX=40
               @statusY=44
          Here you need to change the X and Y offsets to determine the positions of the sprite. Also line 1074 you will find this:
          Code:
          # Position of HP gauge
          HPGAUGE_X=75
          HPGAUGE_Y=35
          # Position of EXP gauge
          EXPGAUGE_X=47
          EXPGAUGE_Y=67
          Here also change the X and Y values to change to position of the gauges.

            Drago:
            Thankyouthankyou~ ;o; I knew it had to be in that section somewhere, I just didn't see it for some reason.

            Oh yeah, how you do change the font too? I want something besides the R/S/E text(or whichever game that is...)


            EDIT: How do you change the thickness of the EXP and HP bars too? As well as adjusting the location of the enemy/wild Pokemon.

              I've recently upgraded to a newer release of Pokémon Essentials, and now, a number of areas will not display the text they are supposed to, such as Pokémon names, item names, Pokémon moves/abilities etc. Basically... everything.

              For example, if I receive a Pokémon it says "Player received !" and there is a blank space. Same goes for items.

              What is causing this?

                  All evolution methods, except for Shedinja (?), Milotic (Beauty isn't implemented) and ones using new things introduced in D/P (e.g. Dusk Stone or Mt. Coronet), should work.
                  As for the shiny question, in PokeBattle_Pokemon, find these lines:
                  Code:
                  def isShiny?
                   [email protected]^@trainerID
                   b=a&0xFFFF
                   c=(a>>16)&0xFFFF
                   d=b^c
                   return (d<8)
                  end
                  
                  def makeShiny
                   rnd=rand(65536)
                   rnd|=(rnd<<16)
                   rnd|=rand(8)
                   @personalID=rnd^@trainerID
                   calcStats
                  end
                  Change the 8s in those lines to 66s, for a 1/993 chance (you won't be able to get any closer; 65 would give 1/1008).

                  Try compiling the data again (through the Debug menu, or by holding CTRL while starting up the playtest). They work perfectly in my game...

                        Well, I was still having some issues with the exp bar still(when it finally levels up), but I just found the problem a few minutes ago XD *feels pathetically victorious*

                        But yeah,


                        How do I change the location for the Paras? (ignore the other errors, I just haven't gotten around to editing those yet)


                        EDIT: Now I'm having bad issues with the summary page. It looks fine when I first select a Pokemon to look at, but when I use the up/down key to view another one the sprites shift, despite changing the "pbGoToPrevious" and "pbGoToNext" scripts to have the same sprite xy coordinates. I even tried refreshing the entire script with an unedited one(just in case maybe I screwed something up elsewhere, for some odd reason) but it's still doing it...

                        Also, I'm not sure where the script is to move the "What will ___ do?" text in battle.

                              I edited both the commandbox.png and fightbox.png into the picture below:


                              However, the battle screen still appears to be like this:

                                I noticed that too when tweaking with the battle script for lord knows how long. The box uses the windowskin folder. Basically, whatever skin you're set to view windows with is what shows up there.

                                I don't know how to fix or change it.

                                    In the PokeBattle_ActualScene area of the script, i added

                                    if @outdoor
                                    pbDayNightTint(@sprites["battlebg"])
                                    pbDayNightTint(@sprites["enemybase"])
                                    pbDayNightTint(@sprites["playerbase"])
                                    end

                                    to the end of the pbBackdrop section, but when it's night the background doesn't change. Am I missing something blindingly obvious, because this is one of my first time adding bits to the script.

                                      For the first one, I am still trying to find a way to do this.
                                      For the second one, You just need to find tile of a bridge that fits your needs.

I looked all over the notes to see if I could find it there.. was it removed? or did I not see it? or is it there at all? well thanks to anyone who responds.. !
                                      I do not think it is in the notes. Go to the script Scene_Movie and read the comment titled instructions.

                                        Why didn't work this file for the fishing animation?

                                            Care to explain the rival one a little more? You mean have a trainer that took the opposite starter than you? If that's the case, just make a switch for each starter you have, like if you take a Charmander it will turn on the "Charmander" switch. Then when the rival shows up, make a different scenario for each switch. (So if the Charmander switch is on, then the player will battle the one that has the Squirtle, etc)


                                            Mikel88:
                                            First of all it's not lined up correctly(the top row is for the sprites facing down). Secondly, you might need to rename it to whatever the previous fishing animation was called.

                                                This fixes it, although I have to hold CTRL for every playtest now, which is strange. Thanks. : P Also, the game now skips my title screen. Not sure why. :/

                                                    How do you disable the perspective view in the game? That's where it tries to simulate a 3D look by messing with the angle of how the floor is viewed.
