    So is that actually a finished cbs? That would be really cool if you had one for your game. Most games I've seen only have a partial one and stuff

    Actually, you've seen unfinished games with unfinished CBS. This game is different, it will be finished, so it needs a finished CBS.



    And the CBS is still not complete, I've put it aside to work on the other systems, but I'd say we're almost there

    I think we've done more than anyone concerning pokemon systems... basically we've everything except the computer storage system, because I haven't had time to work on it yet.



    Just to keep you informed on what's going on

      Jeez Azura all I ever see from you is update after update after update, don't you ever stop by just to say hello??

      Ha ha, just kidding... maybe

      But either way, the screens look good, the systems look good, now all you need is a finished game and you'll have accomplished something that no one here has accomplished!!

      KEEP GOING AT IT!!

      You didn't have to put in that screenshot. But since you did... It looks great.

      Anyway, what do you have left to work on on the battle system?

      Because what's the point on having a CBS if you can't use items nor see the status of your pokémon?

      So I completed the Status and Item screen, and now (like today) I'm going to continue making the Battle system.

      That's all about it

        Hi Everyone! Here I am again giving a new update. Today we're showing you a preview of our menu system. Click on the picture below to preview the game.


        And here we are showing for the first time one of our new Pokemon in the game. Here we introduce to you our new Pokemon:


        Hope you all enjoy!

        Remember the previews we are showing you are not final. They might change in the future.

        Looks like an official Pokémon game, it's that good! Keep up the hard work!

        Also, are you going to insert that Pokémon the way it is or are you going to make a regular-sized sprite for it? It is awesome!

          I would expect them to make an actual sprite for that Pokemon. Looks good! I love the way it looks. Keep up the good work, you guys!

          Oh Dash... when will you learn?
          It's written 'Fight', not 'Flight'.

          And about the 'nice grammar' thing... it's PidgeY, not PidgeT.

          @Don Patch: thanks... Heart's plan is to resize them. But a bigger and major thing would be to revamp all Pokémon sprites... but that would take a lot of effort. So yeah, we probably gonna resize it to normal resolution.

          Either that dash or you need your eyes checked .

          Anyways I like the bag and Pokédex. It’s great to finally see them in action. Oh and Heart awesome new Pokémon, love it.
          It's all turning out the way I expected and hoped especially from you two. Don’t give up cos I'm here to support you both :D.

            this game is really nice, i think your like the first team to ever finish all of the pokemon systems and make them look and act the way they do on the GBA, its amazing. Keep up the good work.

              Yeah ive been checking these posts since early summer, lookin good i must say, i have been waiting months for you to reveal the battle system , i bet its gonna be awesome though when it does come out. If you do release the cms and cbs, and other systems, your gonna make ALOT of pokemon fans very happy. lol. I cant tell you how many times i see on rmxp.org and dubealex.com " Does anyone have a pokemon battle system".

              I looked at the video, and it looks like an authentic game, i cant believe how good of a job you guys did.

                Nice work by all guys, the screenies are great.
                I agree with dawson about editing the "Press A for this" to the actual key.

                  I'm scripting the CBS right now, not too much since I'm back to school.

                  About the "Press A for this" stuff... My idea (only an idea): players will go to "Options" in the menu and will be able to choose which key to press. Graphics would be loaded automatically.

                  What do you think?

                  ============================================
                  IMPORTANT NOTE:
                  ============================================


                  Due to recent PM's I've been having to read, I would like to let something very clear.

                  ALL the scripts you see in previews and screenshots are 100% (a hundred percent ¬¬) made by me.

                  Made by me from scratch. By scratch I mean: I haven't used any other script as a base nor copied anything from any previous script.


                  It's sad that people can't believe in such thing.

                  Nothing more to add,

                  ~Azura.

                  Hmmm... I think that is a pretty good idea. Some people like to keep the authenticity of the GBA games and some want the real controls to show. That way, you can please everyone!

                    It is quite pathetic actually.

                    This game is going to rock man! However, the introduction is kinda... pixelized, don't you think ?

                    Gives the feeling... maybe? lol

                    I don't know what to do to improve that... we may resize it back to normal resolution.
                    It's something to worry, but not now...

                    CBS is being done again! I'm just having a hard time making message windows from script...

                    If you can help me LOL

                      Haha, why, thats really easy?

                      Just make a window_message like (use the update/refresh method) to create a new window that displays text letter by letter. I used to have this for one line messages (I have a more complex one though with fading, more lines color codes etc)

                      Code:
                      #==============================================================================
                      # ** Window_Status
                      #------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      # Author    Me™
                      # Version   1.0

                        end
                        #--------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        #-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
                        def new_text(text,color=normal_color)
                          self.contents.font.color = color
                          @text = text
                          @x = @y = 0
                          @fade = true
                          refresh
                        end
                      end
                      Now to display text I used:

                      Code:
                      Window_Status#new_text("This is text to be displayed..")
                      while Window_Status#text != nil
                        Window_Status#update
                        Graphics.update
                      end
                      And I guess with that you can do a lot.

                          @Me: lol no, I didn't mean a letter by letter script... but anyway I solved... my problem was that I've a 'display_message' method. And I was updating it everytime, so the message would never go away lol.

                          Thanks anyway I'm clueless on how Window_Message works tho... some weird things have been happening when I messed with it lol If I catch you on msn I'll show you :p
