[XP] 3D Battle Camera
« on: February 16, 2013, 02:50:29 AM »
3D Battle Camera
Authors: ThallionDarkshine
Version: 0.4
Type: Battle Add-on
Key Term: Battle Add-on

Introduction

The default battle system is extremely boring and not dynamic at all. And so, here's a script that zooms in on the currently targeted enemy, using a parallax effect to make it appear somewhat 3D.

Features

  • Liven up the DBS with a 3D battle camera.
  • Customize zoom values and parallax amount.

Screenshots

(click to show/hide)

Demo

None yet.

Script

(click to show/hide)

Instructions

In the script.

Compatibility

Could have compatibility issues with some custom battle systems.

Credits and Thanks

  • Blizz for giving me the idea

I don't really think that screenshot gives it justice. Maybe if it was a video it would look better, but as a still, all it look like is that you enlarged an enemy with zoom which doesn't really look 3D at all. Or am I miss understanding the concept?

I think he was trying to make it work like in my game LL4. Keep in mind that I am using KGC's Pseudo 3D Camera script for that (I only tweaked the parameters a bit).

Blizz, you lied to me. Actually, I just assumed that you had made it yourself.
@bigace - The camera focuses on the currently targeted enemy and does a parallax effect with the battleback to give the illusion of depth.

That's the only script in my game that I didn't make myself. xD

The only script? When I saw a few other scripts in the database, I thought that they looked like they had been used in CP. Such as, Aqua's HP states script. I had never noticed that, and then I made a script that basically did the same thing, only not using states, to replicate the feature from CP.

Edit - And what about Fantasist's transition pack? Or did you only use your own transitions?

Yup, I did my own ones. In fact, Fantasist was the one who was inspired by my game to make the transitions pack. xD There are actually a lot of scripts that have been inspired by CP. Since I didn't want to release the scripts, people made their own versions.

Of course you made it first. That's what's been inspiring all my battle-related scripts, and the next script up is auras on the person that's speaking.

Edit - Update to version 0.2. This script is now compatible with my battler transitions script.

Fixed. It was having an error with my compatibility code with my battler transitions script.

Edit - Update to v0.4. Fixed another little bug with the compatibility code.
