boonzeet submitted a new resource:

Phenomenon: BW Style Grass Rustle, Cave Dust + More - Creates the random events from BW, complete with custom battle music and customisable item drops

View attachment 269 View attachment 271

My favourite feature of Black and White was the phenomena - random events that let you snag good items or rare Pokémon, or even just fighting Audinos for a good EXP boost. So I've created it in Essentials!

This is my first 'big script', so any experienced coders, I'd love some feedback and tips to improve it.

Features
  • All 4 random events - Grass rustling, Water bubbles, Cave dust and Flying birds, complete with sound effects...

I added everything in the order you said, and it doesn't work.

The game runs perfectly, but there's not any grass/water/cave etc rustle encounter. I even changed the r value to a number which is always higher than PHENOMENOM_FREQ, and it even the it justs...Doesn't work at all.

Did you set the defined switch to ON?

I've cleared up the code for it and added the ability to just leave phenomenon permanently on by setting this to -1. Just did a test install on a fresh version of Essentials using the instructions and it definitely works.

Oh, yeah...I didn't do that, you're right... Thanks, and sorry for having such a silly mistake, should've read your script better Dx

Not at all, it was actually really ambiguous what that option did! Thanks for alerting me to it and giving me a chance to improve it

I'm having trouble get the encounters to show up - it could be that this doesn't work in v18.1 yet, but I tried nonetheless. I had to change the Switch = 59 because switch 56 is taken now. I set the frequency to 450, set the encounters for route 1 and used the Debug menu to turn swithc 59 ON, which is even showing up as Phenomenon, but I'm still not getting anything. Do I need to have Marin's scripting utilites? I have LukaSJ's, but not Marin's.

Please ensure RPG Maker XP is closed while replacing the Animations.rxdata file.

I'll check but I'm pretty sure this works in 18.1. Please can you share how your encounters are set up?

Question, how to you set up the custom music? I've been trying to make it work but I've been having errors. This issue specifically. I'm not sure if I am putting the file name wrong or something.

Scroll down to line 185, put your Battle Music file between the quotation marks and remove everything past the &&'s (including the &&'s). That's what solved it for me at least. Not a code expert tho.

In the new version, there is a setting at the top on line 20 "BattleMusic". Setting this to the name of the file alone e.g. "Battle roaming" will automatically play the music.

EDIT:
That was a mistake on my part lol.

However PhenomenonBird doesn't show up while the rest does. How can I fix that?
