Demo

Here is a link to the topic of the demonstration game Chronicles of Sir Lag-A-Lot. It uses about 50% of the (current) features of this ABS to demostrate what you can do with this ABS if you are ready to put some serious effort into your game. Keep in mind that the game uses v1.63 and not the most recent version. Those features might be available in future versions.
Official Chronicles of Sir Lag-A-Lot topic

The example game Star G. on the other side used Blizz-ABS v2.23, but it uses only a small number of features.
Official Star G. topic

The example game series Arshes goes to Battle Camp uses Blizz-ABS v2.84 and higher, and demonstrates specific advanced topics, such as custom enemy AI.

The independent example game Dissipate is still in work, but it looks extremely promising.

Ok, My Question is the Following:

I wanted to know, if it's possible to manipulate a Boss Fight and making it quite strategical, To sum it up more easy, if there's a way I can make in battle Manipulate it, either by Events & Call scripts. An Example:


First One:

In one battle the Boss would be in a giant stone in which he is safe from Attacks and Summons his little bugger minions, by using the call script to check the Map until all the Critters are dead in the Variable, the Boss would Teleport itself from his safe place and fight the player.

One thing I'd like to know if I could Manipulate the Boss by Variables, that by a certain number of hits, for example; after 5 hits, he teleports back to his Giant stone away from the Player, and resetting the Variable of the fiends, he summons once more Minions. Process repeats ti'll he's dead.

Second one:

Would like to make a Boss in Which Starts to Teleport every so with the character like a scene, without him hitting the character.


Third One:
Manipulate a Boss Fight, when the Boss looses he changes form into a new Monster instead of dying, he simply transforms in a new one, I was wondering if it's possible.

Final One:

D= if it's possible to make the Enemy create like 'Doppelgangers' throu event, and not make the boss move or Attack the player unless he either hits a fake.


=X That is all I want to know.

Blizz-ABS will support a Boss AI feature in future which can be made by any scripter as plugin. I guess you'll have to wait a bit for that. =/

EDIT:

1.89 is out.

This IS the best ABS I've ever tried.  On the 1.89 Version, I've bumped into an error (Picture Below).  Also, for some reason, the enemies won't attack me.  I've tried searching, but found nothing on this error.



EDIT:  I also just check, and everything works fine on version 1.8.

You will get a crash sooner or later with v1.8 as everybody does. :3 I recommend using v1.73 then.

Anyway, the problem with the bug is following:
Since I've been already working on the ally AI, I've been changing the code of the Map_Actor class. Before I've stopped working on it for now, I've had problems with allies returning into the caterpillar formation. So I decided to revamp the old ally AI completely.
I've been in a hurry when I wanted to release 1.89, so I simply removed the code that I thought of to be the extra coding. I suppose I didn't remove it all or I already modified other parts of the code. I'm not sure, but it might work normally up to some degreee if you turn off the caterpillar for now. I'll see if I can fix this problem temporarily in v1.9 before I make the new ally AI for v2.0.

So, you can try continue using v1.89 and simply turn off the caterpillar for now.

EDIT:

I'm glad that this ABS is still considered to be the best, even though NeoABS was released. :D

well Blizz your ABS is amazing for tons of reasons

it is easy to use unlike most of the others out there that you need loads of scripting knowledge just to set up a enemy ( i am like the trash of scripting and i can use your ABS crazy easy)
and you keep it real with your ABS with its simplicity to use and all the features it has
i mean c'mon who ever says this ABS system is whack you just tell me and i'll

Thanks.  I'll use 1.73 then.  I'm not in that much of a hurry.
the NeoABS, for some reason, wasn't all that great.  I can think of countless other ABS' that I like better.  And, this one tops the list.

I got a question.

I just installed the new version, but now enemies are weaker than before. They hardly attack me and I have to keep following them to make them attack me. Rather than coming at me to kill my characters, they are running away from them and rarely attack.


EDIT: I now know how to turn on the attributes but the enemy only attacks me when I attack it and I would rather have the enemy attack me and not the enemy be "if you don't hurt me, I'll leave you alone".

EDIT2: Never mind, I got it.

I got some random error while playing with the enemy AI.

"Script 'Blizz ABS Part 1' line 5121 : NoMethodError occurred.

undefined method `sight' for #<Map_Enemy:0x3f85e00>"

I set this enemy's attributes to \a[00011101] when I encountered this error and was around that enemy at the same time it happened.

Since 8 yrs? wow!

What you're asking is the Ally AI feature, which Godly Blizz is working on. v1.9 will have it I think.

Also note that this ABS doesn't have all the features that were originally planned implemented yet.
This system is still under development and it only gets better by the day. Did you know that it's compatible with many other scripts by Blizzard? Happy

1. Log in then ^_^
2. You'll find very good scripts in the Scripts Database
3. Definitely try Chaos Project (found in the projects section). It has two languages, English and GERMAN! Maybe you'll be among the few who can report any errors in German mode.

Chaos Project is Blizzard's game btw. And if you know German, both of you will be speaking in German soon enough (and throw us all in the dark XD)

@Peter: Hi, what's up?

Alright, solving the problem is simple. Yes, the ABS really doesn't work with the illegal version, but since I don't care what version somebody is using, I explained in the manual how to solve the problem. Simply read chapter 5.3. and you should be fine. If you have problems, PM or e-mail me.

BTW, v1.89 already has the new AI. I didn't make it v1.9, because I need to add "leader action decision of minions" and update the manual by explaining better how to configure some stuff.

And yeah, you should register and log in. xD Posting on an English forum can improve your English a lot if you visit it and post frequently.

Last thing: You really might wanna try my game. As FTS said, it's in English and German. :3 A german testing besides mine would be pretty helpful. :3

@Sin86: I'll look into it. It's a problem I haven't encountered myself yet, so I can't tell what the problem could be. But on first sight I'd say it's a typo. The line should say something with "char.sight", but it should be either "ai.sight" or "char.AI_data.sight". Try changing it, it might just work out, so I can delay the release of v1.9 for a bit longer until I finish all the stuff I have to do.
