I assure you I'm no where NEAR as STUPID as one might think.


Game-play functionality

Okay, I wanted to talk about the functions that go into game play and what seems like a good thing to add to games.
Mostly I'm going for Fantasy RPG types. Like I wanted to make a game, as one did it like this before and I wanted to tweak it a little-bit.

I wanted to add Continue Coins in which you win from boss battles and mini games.
These Coins are used so when you die, they restart the battle and you're funny healed as well as the enemy. Then I wanted to add people in town that are used as special types of save points. Where if you record your 'soul' in their books, if you don't have a Continue Coin it brings you back there instantly and healed as well as you can save the actual game in their books. Also I wanted to make a game, which I am, based on the Suikoden Series, but every person you recruit can be used in battles, which in Suikoden they can, but the idea is this.

You have 6 members, 2 in the out section which you can bring over and switch out. Which seems okay. But here is where it gets fun. If anyone dies, it pulls up the out section, you then choose which one to bring in. Say both out die, then it pulls up a list and allows you to choose right then and there who out of all recruited, who to use to fight with until there is no one left. This allows for longer fights and less dying, but to cause a game over without killing them all, you, the main character will have to die and not be healed in a set number of minutes.

I love the way Suikoden is so far, but this is how I'd do it. What do you all think and what would you do in terms of game play?

RPG Maker Questions: Technical and otherwise

"RPG Maker Questions: Technical and otherwise"

Okay, I've got 1 question, and the other part of this topic will be finding someone willing to help and with a few things scripting wise via RPG Maker XP via MSN IM.

The very first question is as followed:

1. On RPG Maker 2003, they have a thing that memorizes the Map ID so you can quickly teleport back based on the thing that pulls up memorized ID's. The question is, is there anything like that in XP? I cannot seem to find it.

Now, I'm in need, greatly, of someone who is basically a master in the Ruby Scripting Language so they can in-fact help me code in a video with the Title screen, as well as emulate, so-to-speak, the Suikoden styled battles and war battles.

I've already started working on the game, but the scripting itself is what I'm lacking in and will be needing help in.

If anyone is actually willing to collaborate with me through Instant Messages, please, please, please post on here so I then can PM me my MSN IM Address.

Now to explain what the game is. I'm doing a fan version of the Hit RPG game known as Suikoden. As it has been seen many times over, it is a very hard and time consuming game to make. Many have failed due to what it takes to get the job done, but I have the time to do it. I have an online shirt shop as is the main job I've got now, so I don't have to worry about going to work and cutting time off of this.

The story is a What-if version of Suikoden 1. It tells the story of Tir if he didn't go into the Liberation Army at the time he did.

The time is 2 years later, after the fall of the current Liberation Army. During the timeline of the actual game, it had Odessa and Flic and others, but not many. This story has new playable characters, old, and will follow the same path but in a different way.

Now that I told you about it, I hope it helps get someone willing to be involved with it.


I've got to know something. Is it possible to code on XP the way of Chrono Trigger? Like the battles that they had? Also, is there an actual place that may have the scripts that they used on the game?

In dire need of a coder or somewhat close coder for RPG MAKER 2003

I need someone who can code good enough to help me with RPG Maker 2003. I am pretty sure it is possible to use the one for XP to make it look 3d-ish. Mode something. Not sure the whole name. If someone can help add that and tell me if it is possible to make the battles like that of Chrono Trigger, please help or tell me yes or no :P
