    Current Version: 0.8
    This release contains:
    • A server (albeit a bit buggy :/)
    • Login Screen
    • Register Screen
    • Public Chat system
    • Private Chat system
    • Global erasing of events
    • Having the ability to display the map without other players.
    • Having the ability to show a players chat underneath them.
    • Documentation on the current features.
    MAKE SURE TO READ THE README!!!!!

    Link to download:
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/6ovuca

    Currentley working on:
    Fixing a bug with the message box appearing in the battle system.

    Fixing connecting maps when involving netplayers.
    Writing a FAQ to document the new features and how to use them.
    Fix a problem that when the game window is closed, the player does not get removed from the server's list of online people.
    Fix a litle bug with the private chat system
    Surfing no longer wants to work to a certain extent. When you click on the water, the message pops up fine. If you click yes, the player does not change sprite and does not move inside the water. The BGM still changes to that of surf though :/
    Running, although I think its just pressing the shift button, doesn't appear to be working.
    Strength doesn't appear to work, pressing on the boulder does nothing. - seems to be variable, works sometimes, and other times not.
    Bubble chat(text from chat to appear below player)
    Getting Connecting Maps to work again >_< Any maps connected to the one you are on no longer display, even if you walk into them Until you walk into them. Thats annoying >_<\
    Due to my messing about, the maps are now repeating themselves over and over, ( if u keep walking to the sides of a map, the map will repeat itself for some reason )
    Yay! Other players now actively update on the map! You can see them moving etc. Now there are still a few bugs to iron out e.gtransferring between maps is now broken >_<

    if someone joins, they don't see the other players until they move and
    Okay, its a bit buggy, but other players are starting to show on the map, but only if you leave the map and return, they don't yet update
    and I broke the message display system while doing this. It seems that the messages are still showing, but underneath the map layer ( the z planes are all messed up :/ )
    Getting other players to show on the map. This problem seems to be a conflict between Poccil's and the Netplay's way of coding.

    Currentley finished:
    • Communicating with the Netplay Plus server by SuicideManic
    • A fully functional login screen adapted to the resolution of Pokemon Essentials
    • A fully functional registering screen adapted to the resolution of Pokemon Essentials
    • To a certain extent, the chat system is fully functional
    • Private Chat system
    • Global erasing of events
    • Having the ability to display the map without other players.
    • Having the ability to show a players chat underneath them.
    Future Plans:
    • Trading system for both items and Pokemon
    • Battle system - battles against your friends
    • Party system - allow people to become part of your party and have double battles with gym leaders and wild encounters
    • More to come!

    Pokemon Essentials : Online utilizes Netplay Plus 1.6.3 not 2.0, so many features such as online registration, MYSQL databases etc, are not included. This is due to the fact that I can't understand how the Netplay + 2.0 server works for the life of me. When I figure it out, I shall start on a new version of PE:O.
    PE O v.1 will include a ruby server with a GUI frontend for easy controlling. This will allow for more complex functions utilising a MySQL server among other improvements.

    Thanks,
    Alexandre

            There is no reason you can't help. I've finished like 2% of this. The main feature, seeing other players on the map, is not even done yet xD. And yeah, the login screen and register screen are fully mouse compatible.

                Edit: Added a new screenshot of the ability to see other players on the map! In the first Game.exe you can see what I am talking about when the map repeats :/

                  NOOOOOOO........ I was planning to bomb by secretly adding netplay compatibility into my project =[

                  You beat me to it lol, Well maybe this will help me in the long run being as I havn't started yet. Glad to see that this has come along it makes it easier for me though. After basic compleation will you be downloading essentials that includes netplay compatibility or just scripts? curious...... Also as I begin to experiment with netplay compatibilities on my game or until I get this version assuming its for public use. I will offer any assistance I can.

                  Also great work I love seeing things that help people out oh and Dragochamp would be a plus in helping. From what I've seen of his works its pretty great.

                    Hahaha, I'm sorry. But I've been doing this for ages now. I've been using netplay since the early days way back in 2005. I know my way around basically each and every script in Netplay up till version 1.7. 2 is a completely different story xD. I would be glad for any help though if you have gotten further than me :D. And, I know Drago_Champ is awesome. I'm Blue Chrome's scripter >_

                      Yea I realized that after I posted lol..... Then I guess youre a fairly good scripter as the game appears to be really nice from what I have seen. Ive never used netplay just found out about it recently and it being able to allow RPG XP to make MMORPG games and I wanted to try and add it to my fangame for online interactions group questing and what not. As I start experimenting with it if I by some odd chance do get something that you don't Ill share it with you. I wish you the best of luck as well. Like I said this will be helpful to the community in offering a new feature for Pokemon Fangames and games using Poccils starter kit as a base.

                        Well to make a MMORPG you will need a good deal of experience in RPG XP or whatever program you are using yes this would simplify it but the noob scripters and people who really don't know anything about RPG XP wouldn't successfully be able to set it up. I don't think it would be flooded except by the more advanced XP users. Where as it would simplify turning poke games into RPG's there will be a lot of work the creator will have to do. They have to set up a server and various other things for the people to use. They will have to maintain the server as well. And a plus side is with a MMORPG people won't produce as many new games they will simply update their existing MMORPG to improve features and make things more user friendly. I am working on a fangame that will have the basic online functions as if you were using wi-fi. And on the dev board for my team we are making a completely scratch MMORPG using poccils starter kit as a base due to the battle system and menus. Some skill will be needed and a load of the games here usually fail within a few months or so. Meaning even if the forum is flooded only a few great ones will survive.

                          I didn't say I wasn't going to include these features.

                                OMG, that looks amazing. I was aware of an MMO script for RPG Maker XP, but seeing it work with pokemon essentials is really amazing. Good luck to the project, I really hope it goes well.

                                  A bit of a status update:
                                  I broke the transfering of the player again while implementing the public chat system. >_<
                                  Updates will be much more scarce now due to the fact that the only computer I have access to is an MSI Wind ( a netbook ) and its heck trying to script on this tiny machine.

                                      I can say that this looks promising. It might make me want to use RPGXP again and get away from Eclipse because I know more about RPGXP.

                                        Status update: I have access to a fast desktop machine, so updates will hopefully be coming back. I have made some progress towards the transfering player glitch again, but now all players appear on the map when someone transfers to a different map, regardless of which map they are on. I have an idea on how to fix it.

                                            The first beta of Pokemon Essentials : Online will be realeased soon, as soon as I iron out some bugs. It will include:
                                            • The ability to see other players on the map
                                            • A public chat systen
                                            • A private chat system
                                            Some bugs mentioned in the first post may be in this beta, such as the inability to surf, and the repetion of maps, which will hopefully soon be fixed.

                                                Status update! I fixed the repeating maps issue. Trying to refix the transferring player issue >_< Learn from this people! Always make backups of valuable work! >_<

                                                Edit: Status Update!

                                                I fixed the transferring player issue, and 90% fixed the connecting maps. When netplayers are involved in the connecting maps, bugs start appearing.

                                                  I scripted a new function for events. If you include pbNetEraseThisEvent in an event (such as a rock smash or a cuttable tree), it will be erased globally and will return the same as a regular event. I am also working on getting the chat text to appear below the player who said it. This should be done in the coming days. I hope to solve the remaining problems in my list (currently working on), and then I shall release the first beta :D

                                                    Another status update!

                                                    I finished the bubble chat system ( as I like to call it ), pictures say a thousand words, so I'll leave it to this.



                                                    Edit: Fixed the running issue, turned out to be pressing shift and not running that was broken.
