Quote from: KK20 on May 25, 2014, 01:27:01 amIf that's not the case, your only option is to choose one script that you like and event the other half, as already suggested. Your intentions aren't entirely clear though. You say Pokemon-style battles, but is it really Pokemon? Or are you just talking about turn-based battles in general (like the default RMXP battle system)? Also, you say Zelda-like battle system. To what extent of a system are we talking here? Pressing a button to slash a sword and damage an event? Picking up and throwing objects?If your system involves battling monsters on the map and gaining EXP/items/money in addition to the turn-based battle system, you are going way overboard with your game and making it more complicated than what it's worth. You even said it yourself: "How does an evented ABS work?" You are designing a game that is easily brushed aside by the average gamer. You're putting two completely contradictory elements into one game.My advice is to lower your goals and expectations, especially if you just started immersing yourself in the RM community. Read tutorials. Play other people's games. Discuss game theory and ideas. Learn something worthwhile so that you can make a good game from the start and not waste precious time.

My advice would be to go ahead and get started on your game using whichever one of the systems you think will be used more, and then once you've made some good progress, you can plan a little better as to how the second system will fit in. I'd even bet that if what you make is really fantastic, there might be some people who will help you combine the scripts. Go ahead and give things a try. As long as you're willing to put enough effort into it, I'm sure you can get things to work just the way you want them!
