    Hey guys,
    I am wondering how can you change the background of the bag depending on the sex of the player. You know like in the regular games.

    Why can't Pokemon Essentials use Background sounds? O__O This is more of a suggestion than a question, but it would really make the experience of Pokemon the best it can be. I've heard that Poccil excluded it to make the kit the closest thing possible to the Pokemon Game Engine, but doing that was more of a drawback! I want to re-implement this feature in myself, so would there be any way to do that?

      @Maruno: Thanks a lot man.

      @Soul.//Silver: I'm not sure, I'll take a look and see if I can find anything later and either edit this post or make a new one.

      @Gregora: Wichu made a simple bank system for essentials ages ago. It should be in this thread... I think it was somewhere on...page 54? Although, it was only for savings, you'll have to edit it some more if you want your mom to actually spend the money and buy stuff.

      @Blitz: You're just gonna have to delete the Audio.dll in the folder and it'll revert back to normal. Just realize that background sounds carry over from map to map, so if you don't want the sound of crackling fire in the middle of a lake, set it to have the map play a different bg sound, or set it to automatically play and then select (none). Or, you can select a sound and set it to 0 volume too.

        Hm, I've got another problem/possibly a bug. But I can't "attach" my maps together anymore o.O
        I got to test play, press F9->Visual Editor-> F5..and when I type a command it dosen't respond. It only responds to X, and C.
        How do I fix this problem? D:

        I can make a Dependent event and stop it following you, but is there anyway to then use it as an event on the new map? E.G.

        Dependent -> go to new map, talk to event -> Dependent character walks off.

                I assume you mean you want to change the species names, not individual Pokémon names (e.g. having your starter Pokémon and only it be called Wally).

                After editing pokemon.txt, did you recompile the game before running it? You compile it by doing a playtest while in RPG Maker XP (where you draw the maps) - it's the big green "play" button at the top on the right.

                The way the PBS files work is that they're a temporary set of files that can be easily edited. When you compile the game, the information therein is copied to some other files in a more complicated format (in the Data folder, anything with ".dat" at the end). The game only uses those .dat files while it's playing, not the PBS files. You can edit the PBS files all you want, but if you don't recompile the data (i.e. make new .dat files from them), they'll make no difference to the game.

                  Hey, all.
                  Can someone tell me how to delete a save file? Because I find it sad that I've never known how before. I mean, really.
                  Please do tell. Manually, or not.
                  Thanks.

                    To delete save data you have 3 options.
                    The first option is to just save over it. But.. that's probably not want you want.
                    The second is to, while on the title screen, press CTRL + X + Down Key.
                    The third is to open the game folder and find the file that says Game. You should have, like 4 of these. Delete the one with the blue dragon icon.

                      at the risk of sounding really dumb is there anyway to empliment an underground script into the starter kit or is that yet to be thought of if the latter is true im going to see if there is anyway to make it ^.^

                          Go to the script PokemonUtilities
                          Go to line 1444 and this should be on that line:
                          Code:
                             return AnimatedBitmap.new(sprintf("Graphics/Pictures/egg"))
                          Create a new line and paste in this code:
                          Code:
                           elsif isConst?(species,PBSpecies,:GIRATINA) && ($game_map.map_id==36) #pokemon.item==PBItems::GRISEOUSORB || 
                             return AnimatedBitmap.new(sprintf("Graphics/Battlers/%03d%s%s_alt",species,
                                pokemon.isShiny? ? "s" : "",
                                back ? "b" : "")
                             )
                          And there you go.
                          And the icons? And there's one thing, i wanted only when the Griseous Orb is holded, but i already fixed that myself. Now i don't know how to change the icons! If you don't know, does someone else know it?

                            Do the same kind of thing, but in the def immediately below the one you edited, handily called pbLoadPokemonIcon. It doesn't kill you to have a bit of a look on your own before clamouring for help, you know.

                            The only thing I'll say here is that you won't use the exact same chunk of code. Figure out how to adapt it by yourself.

                              I did, but then i don't get a Syntax Error or something, it just doesn't change.

                                The third is to open the game folder and find the file that says Game. You should have, like 4 of these. Delete the one with the blue dragon icon.
                                THANK YOU! For a second I thought there was absolutely no way XD
                                Another problem, guys..

                                After I tried cng's Dual Screen Script, Pokémon Opal went berserk.. It won't create a new game. It's very, very frustrating..
                                After a long time of waiting for a response from the application of the game yesterday, it gave me this error:

                                Code:
                                Exception: NoMethodError

                                And I don't understand it at all. Please help..

The notes.html doesn't tell much about dependent events, maybe a little more info about these events would be quite apprechiated.

                                  I actually have the solution, you need to edit the common event so when a certain switch occurs it auto-runs whatever needs to be done.

                                    I've put a bit of information about dependent events in the wiki page Partner trainer, although it's just a little bit of information (nearly all copied from the notes). It might help, though.

                                    I don't know much about dependent events, but when you make the dependent event stop following you (at a particular place, or by talking at the follower and telling it to stop following in its common event), you can manipulate a new event (stored in a corner of the map out of the way) appear in its place at the same time. Do this by having the follower's common event move the new sprite from its safe position to in front of the player and facing them (by setting its move route). Have one new event per map.

                                    That's just off the top of my head. It's probably more difficult that I've made it sound.

                                          For shiny pokémon, see the wiki page Trainers (look at the bottom of the second table on that page, and also the example just below it).

                                          $Trainer.id is the trainer's ID number. Presuming you're putting it in a text message in an event (rather than in a pbMessage type thing in the scripts), first write the ID number to a variable with $game_variables[42]=$Trainer.id, then put "\v[42]" in the text message. Pick a variable to use for yourself - it should be an otherwise unused one, for minimum confusion.
