you should check out this ABS system though it is amazing!!!  :o
if you read the manual it will explain alot and you will be be able to most anything in this ABS..i actually learn alot about scripting just from this ABS by setting up weapon ranges and such..and just by looking at it and actually understanding what he did

I forgot to say this but I have to say something about the enemies.

The evasion to make enemies run from you isn't working like the newest manual says it would.

Oh yeah, I used to have it where "cutscenes" involving enemies would move up/down/left/right with the move command would work before any dialog is said but now it only works after dialog is said. Therefor, the enemy only approches you in a cutscene after talking to you instead of before talking to you.

In the newest manual it says that enemies don't run away anymore based on evasion. -_- Now they will run away of you use the observationg attribute and you are too strong. In fact, I haven't implemented them to be able to run away yet. <_<; The problem with the moving is that enemies are blocked during event execution. I'll fix that.

Hi, i just joined here, but ive been using your ABS for quite a while, and its GREAT!  There are a few bugs i need to point out tho, as theyve been killing my developoment recently  (these are for v 1.73, so they may or maynot be fixed in later versions):

1.  You can jump on top of impassable events while running, and then pass on through them.  Also, if the event is a player touch event, it sometimes wont execute
2.  Damage during combat is dealt to all party members, not just the active one.  Defending only affects the active member tho.
3.  Islands or stepping stones, which is a passable tile that is surrounded on all sides by impassable tiles, are used in my game to cross rivers and cliffs.  Your passability script does not normally recognize them, but I finally figured out how to fix that myself.
4.  This is for v 1.8:  When enemies can see you but can't find a path to you (IE they are in a pit and you have to jump down there to fight them) the script crashes.

As you can see, I use jumping extensively in my project.
Anyways, thanks for any comments you can give!

Thanks for reporting those. :)

1. I didn't find this bug so far, I will look into it.
2. Yes, I know, but only if you have the caterpillar turned on. It's because I haven't finished the ally AI yet.
3. Thanks for reporting that one, too. I have tested the passability check that can handle the pixel movement, but it's possible that I've forgotten thinks. I will be sure to fix this.
4. Yes, I know about this bug. I think I fixed in v1.89, the newest version.

*powers you up* :3

I'll look into them as soon as I can and fix them.

I got a good suggestion for the ABS but I'm not so sure if it can work.

I was thinking about the ability to switch characters and have it where each character can have certain ablities.

Like character A may not beable to push blocks but character B can. Or something like character A cannot open up a certain door but character B can.

That's an interesting feature. Many commercial games have this sort of thing, or at least ones I can remember.

---

Blizzard, this is an excellent ABS. It's very sleek, efficient, and it also responds very well. The mini-map works fine, and I love that feature especially. Jumping is also very amusing to initiate, along with long jumping...:3

Though, I'm just wondering, is there a simple way to set the WASD keys to the arrow keys? I mean, looking at the manual, they had an Input D_Up thing. I decided to switch that into the [let] area at the Controls Editing, but when I tested the game it failed. So then I tried Up, instead of D_Up. Whoop-de-doo, failed again. 'Thought it was a keyboard problem, so I put some random unoccupied key and it works, so I don't know if the arrow keys can be assigned or not...if they can't, can you give me a probable reason why?

I am also wondering about this eventing thing. When I began the game with one enemy event, it seems to be I can go through it. Is that intentional? Would I not go through the event if the ABS were to be off in that certain map?

Thanks...^^

There is an easy way to do that. On top of the script (part 1), just below the header is sometihng called "module Controls". Below that is the key configuration. If you want to use arrow keys, simply exchange the first four commands which these ones:
Code: [Select]
Up = "[D_Up]"
Left = "[D_Left]"
Right = "[D_Right]"
Down = "[D_Down]"

you can also have multiple commands for the same thing, for example..
Quote
    UP       = "[D_Up, Let['I']]" # move up
    LEFT     = "[D_Left, Let['J']]" # move left
    DOWN     = "[D_Down, Let['K']]" # move down
    RIGHT    = "[D_Right, Let['L']]" # move right
    PREVPAGE = "[Let['E'], Let['U']]" # previous page
    NEXTPAGE = "[Let['R'], Let['O']]" # next page
    CONFIRM  = "[Let['W'], Enter]" # confirm selections / pick up items
    CANCEL   = "[Let['Q'], Esc]" # cancel selections
    ATTACK   = "[Let['A']]" # attacking
    DEFEND   = "[Let['D']]" # defending (hold)
    SKILL    = "[Let['S']]" # use skill
    ITEM     = "[Let['F']]" # use item
    SELECT   = "[Let['P']]" # change leader
    HUD      = "[Let['Z'], Dot]" # HUD on/off if enabled
    HOTKEY   = "[Let['N']]" # hotkey display on/off if enabled
    MINIMAP  = "[Let['M']]" # toggle minimap mode if enabled
    RUN      = "[Let['C'], Space]" # running (hold)
    SNEAK    = "[Let['Z']]"      # sneaking (hold)
    JUMP     = "[Let['V']]"    # jumping
    TURN     = "[Let['Y']]" # turning around without moving (hold)

It's actually in the manual that comes with Blizz-ABS, I suggest doing a read through so you can grasp a lot of the awesome features Blizz but in there.

Also, be careful of the Syntax, it's important to get it right or your game will run into an error before anything even shows up.  For any letter key, use
Quote
"[Let[ '<letter>' ]"

without any spaces, then use a "," to seperate your different keys for the same command.  If you're going to be using a directional arrow, or page up, page down, and the like, you don't use the "Let".  Simply type it in the brackets.
   Example:
Quote
CONFIRM  = "[Enter]"
To do more than one, do it just like this, adding in an additonal "," for every new key.  Note that if you are using 2 different letter keys you will need to use the "[Let['<letter>'].  The brackets are very important for this.
Quote
CONFIRM  = "[Let['A'], Let['B'], Enter]"

i've got a suggestion for the Mini Map, with how you can have /spc in the name, i've noticed it's get quite boring seeing yellow arrows everywhere for characters, maybe you could add like a pallet so you can have different colors for /spc, like yellow for signs, dark blue for people, or just have differnt colors for differnt races, like one color for humans, another for.... well you get the idea

Trish: hay Angela, you should take the role, you always wanted to be an actress
Angela: yeh but what about you
Trish: i'll become one too
Angela: what? but about you being a Doll Turner
Trish: first, i'm 500 years old in a 19 year old body, i deserve a rank higher than other tuners, like Miester or something, second, i want to help you since you mean a lot to me
Angela: *imagine kissing scene between them and blushes* thank you
Trish: why are you going red? you should know i can only fix Dolls, not humans

I'll make the colors customizable in the next version then.

@Phasedscar: Very good explanation. :) In the manul of 1.9 I will explain a coupl of things better. This is not the first person who had problems with that.

@Starrodkirby86: Yeah, I made a mistake there, BTW. The words on the left should be all caps.

Thank you for the thorough explanation. I did read the parts of the manual, especially controls, but I thought the Let thing was an essential area, so I got confused when Sneak and Run had those gone. I should've thought about that pattern there. Thank you very much you two.

This'll get me back with motivation.  ;D

Blizzard, your ABS is truly amazing  ;D! I just got Blizz-ABS fully operational in my game. I am using the version from The Chronicles of Sir Lags-a-Lot because it would be easier to set up because of an example, because I don't need the stuff in version 1.8, and version 1.8 made an error before my titlescreen  :-\. Before I set this up I was running the Destruction Engine by Rataime which gave me an error when I ran the game, and I was wondering if there was a way to fix this because the Destruction Engine worked before I made your ABS fully operational. Also I am currently running Guilamme777's Multi-Slot Equipment script. I had it all up and running and tested it out in the normal battle system and it ran fine. But with Blizz-ABS it will not deal damage when I equip my weapon on L-Hand (I made sure the weapon had Attack). Which means L-Hand and Dual-Attack will not work. I was wondering if you could tell me if there is a fix for either of these and if there is how to fix them. Thanks...

PS: Sorry for the long-post for my first post and for the bad grammer :P... want to get to the bottem of this  soon ???

Newer versions of the ABS have an own destruction engine for enemies which is less laggy and much easier to use than Rataime's, that's why I won't bother making it compatible. And yeah, the ABS does not recognize a multi equip system. I guess I have three options:
1. Make Blizz-ABS compatible with the Multi-Equip.
2. Make a compatibility plugin which will act as connector between the two systems.
3. Make an own Multi Equip Script. >_>
The last one is most likely, but I don't have the time, sorry.

Thanks, for the quick reply  :o! But I have one more question, do the built in destruction engine-enemies that I set up attack? Also, how will I use multi-slot equipment, other than making Shield and Weapon slots instead of L-Hand and R-Hand...
