- Pokémon Essentials Version
- v17.2 ➖
The following is a visual upgrade to the Pokémon Essentials starter kit. It was created to resemble the Gen 5 battle system in both the scene and behaviour.
All the scripts and graphics are 100% plug and play. This system does not support GIFs and is not styled or optimized to the likes of Gen 6 games, so the resources provided, and the positioning of the scene elements will not work ideally with new Gen 6 sprites/graphical resources.
Should you wish to make changes to the system, you may do so, but I will not provide you with any support or assistance. Tweak at your own risk! Everything you could possibly need is already included in the kit, and should some resources be missing, or should you wish to add more, you can do so manually.
Carefully read all the instructions .
Q: Help, the game is throwing out errors about missing Pokémon sprites!?
A: Run your game at least once in Debug mode to re-index the sprites.
Q: Help, I'm getting a 'NameError' 'uninitialized constant' error!?
A: This just means that you haven't compiled your game data yet. Please do so.
Q: Can I use GIFs with this system??
A: No. It's that simple
Q: Can I use static and/or default Essentials sprites in this?
A: As stated in the features list, yes. You can still use single frame, static sprites.
Q: How do I get this to work with a DS layout?
A: As of version 4.3.3, EBS no longer supports DS engines.
Q: HALP!!!! My sprites are huge/tiny?
A: If you're not using the resources provided, you'll have some issues at first. The system is not magic. However, you can use the EBS Sprite Positioner located in the EPI to position the sprites, and the scaling constants (in the Settings script) to automatically scale your sprites.
Q: My Mega Pokémon are all over the place in this. What gives?
A: As of v17 of Essentials you can now change battler metrics for forms as well. This is supported in EBS by default. You can use the EBS Sprite Positioner located in the EPI to apply positions based on forms as well.
Q: Can you make this compatible with online play?
A: No. That is none of my concern. Essentials has no PvP aspects to it, so neither will EBS.
Q: I'm getting 'Critical Error' messages!?!
A: That has nothing to do with EBS, and could occour from a multitude of reasons. A common one being that people tend to use pirated versions of RMXP. Another, is a mismatch of the version of RMXP that you are running and the RGSS10xE.dll Library in your project folder.
Q: Can you make this more like 6th generation?
A: No. I have no interest in that.
Q: How can we disable the zooming and scene motion?
A: There is a toggle in the settings script, but some elements are buggy.
