    I made a trainer card with all of the badges on one side (with name, picture, time, money, date started spots too).

    It has a spot for all 5 region's 8 badges and I didn't see anywhere you couldn't do that but I just wanted to know if there's a special script or code I have to write or put somewhere to make it align properly. (so the first region shows up on the top row, in the box it's supposed to be in)

    Also, I added a second side of the card with 49 boxes for the 47 Legendaries to go into. I wanted to know if they could be used like badges in the way that when you catch one it shows the picture on the trainer card. It seems like a similar script to the gym badges showing up but I don't know if it would be the same or if I'd have to do some advance tweaks.

    If I can use the second side, how do you activate the flip control on the trainer card?

    I have a picture on DeviantART but I can't post the url since I don't have enough posts on here.

    EDIT: The pngs of the cards are saved to the specifications on the wiki and of the default trainer cards in my graphics folder.

      You could always put the images as attatchments... I myself can understand what ur trying to make... But we would need to see some sort of image to what you want... The flipping of the card is a slight edit to trainer card script probably an if statement if button right is pressed show one side if left show the other... As for badges position... Once a visual is given help would be easier but we can't just throw code at you without ore info

        For convenience, here is the trainer card design Oakley is talking about.
        Spoiler:


        The trainer card script is called PokemonTrainerCard. It's one of the easier scripts to edit, but I'm still not exactly sure how you should go about making the second side with the legendaries. Sorry!

          Even be the easier, if you don't know about script you can't do.

          Example: '$Trainer.owned[PBSpecies::ARTICUNO]' returns true if the Articuno is caught. You can put an 'if' clause to display the icon.

            So I could take the badge script:

            if $Trainer.badges[i+region*8]
            imagePositions.push(["Graphics/Pictures/badges",x,310,i*32,region*32,32,32])
            end
            x+=48
            end

            And add a script that says:

            if $Trainer.owned[PBSpecies::ARTICUNO]
            imagePositions.push(["Graphics/Pictures/legendaries",x,310,i*32,region*32,32,32])
            end
            x+=48
            end

              That's pretty much how to do it $Trainer.owned[species number] works too, less writing that's all... But add ==true at the end so

              $Trainer.owned[144]==true

              This checks to see if species is owned and returns true if it is and false if it isn't.

              But that's only if you want that certain species to show the whole side other wise you would need to find positions of all PNG files separately but use the same method.

                and the pictures will show up in the right boxes like with the badges?

                EDIT: I put in the legendaries on the back of the card to give an idea of what it will look like (not the sprites I'm using but I haven't gotten that far yet).
                Each Box is 62x39 pixels (while badges are 32x32 I believe).

                So if I put in the script:

                $Trainer.owned[151]==true

                when they catch mew it would show up like when they get a badge?
                or would I have to put a new picture with the legendaries lined up like the badges and put in some sort of grid/coordinates system?

                  I prefer to use the internal names for better code maintenance. The "==true" for booleans isn't needed.

                  Spoiler:
                  You can do this putting separate pictures or one big and putting coordinates system.
                  The example of second way (note that I haven't tested):

                  Code:
                   
                  #Put all legendary pokémon in order that it show in picture
                  legendary=[
                    PBSpecies::ARTICUNO,PBSpecies::ZAPDOS,PBSpecies::MOLTRES,
                    PBSpecies::MEWTWO,PBSpecies::MEW,PBSpecies::RAIKOU,
                    PBSpecies::ENTEI,PBSpecies::SUICUNE,PBSpecies::LUGIA
                  ]
                  basex=180 #Base x coordinate, change it to fill in card.
                  basey=180 #Base y coordinate, change it to fill in card.
                  imgwidth=62
                  imgheight=39
                  columnmax=7
                  #Base y coordinate
                  for i in 0...legendary.length
                    if $Trainer.owned[legendary[i]]
                     imagePositions[imagePositions.length]=[
                        "Graphics/Pictures/legendaries",
                            basex+imgwidth*(i%columnmax),basey+imgheight*(i/columnmax),
                            imgwidth*(i%columnmax),imgheight*(i/columnmax),imgwidth,imgheight
                     ]
                    end
                  end

                      No, this script already checks every one in "legendary" array. Just fill it with other legendaries.

                        oh alright, so I just add them in the PBSpecies list in the order they are in the picture.

                        Side question, is there a site or some program I can learn all this so I don't bug you guys all the time? even if it's just the basics so I learn things like array?
