Re: Ren'Py 6.11.0 Released

Is there a page documenting the changes in language that have been implemented for this version. I've got a feeling I've some homework to do to keep up.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Ok, I'm learning about the position system you have going, but I still have a few questions. For example in the active demo I can't find where the coordinates are set up.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

I think you mean 'BattleGridPosition' as I don't see a simple 'GridPosition' anywhere in there. Also, if I were building a game where the sprites stayed in a fixed position (like active demo) it might not be necessary to have a Position class then would there? The fixed position could be declared in...

Re: A question for RPG lovers: plot or combat?

Seems to me like you should have the text and combat scenes work together. By that I mean that you should have combat strategy slipped into the text portions (like an enemy's weakness) and then having the combat scenes affect the text is simply a matter of having a scripted reaction to a few general...

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Thanks for the reply, I'll dig into that section and try to figure it out ^_^ I do hope that when you calculate the cost to walk through different terrain that you take into account that the terrain can/could be modified by Fighters. Perhaps a Magician can do a simple Earth spell that turns the grou...

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

So it all comes from the variable position which is fed into the function. Can you tell me where this comes from and give an example of what the content of the position variable would look like.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Oops, I just figure out why I couldn't find the Transform function, it's from Ren'Py: http://renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/referen ... /Transform

sorry 'bout that.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Sorry about the multiple posts here, but this is the line from which I'm wondering where the "Transform" comes from initially. Is it a function?

Code: Select all

newTransform = Transform(xpos=transform.xpos, ypos=transform.ypos, xanchor=what.Anchor[0], yanchor=what.Anchor[1])

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Another thing I'm wondering about the Fighter Class is where the transform gets declared initially.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Ok, first off thanks for answering my questions.

I'm curious as to what the BattleAware class is used for. The three functions all have None as their content. Perhaps I'm missing something, but doesn't None do nothing? What exactly is the use of these functions and what does the None do?

Thanks!

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

If it's not too much to ask, could you comment on the Fighter class, more specifically the leadup to the Show function, especially the position variable. I'm trying to reproduce this in a simplified version in order to understand, but I don't get how you feed the info into the functions.

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Will it be possible to add fighters once a battle has been initiated? I'm thinking for example of a magician who might summon an elemental to join the fight or a creature that might spawn another. I'd also like to see scenery that can be modified (trees cut down, fences broken, etc.) but I think you...

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

I've followed your instructions and gotten it to work. I'll wait a few days for the new version to come out before implementing the shields, but in the meantime I'm going to try and figure out as much of the code as possible. The comments you provide in your script are very useful. But still I find ...

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

I'm adapting the battle engine for a game I'm working on set in space. I've basically replaced the fighters with spaceships and the sword and knife skills with photon torpedos (temporary attack for testing). It all works fine (I'm using the active demo) but I'm not sure on how to go about the follow...

Re: Battle Engine - Alpha 2 release, downloads in first post

Is it possible to turn the Game engine into a two-player confrontation? I tried changing the playerFaction variable to True but nothing changed during the gameplay. Is it because the game is limited to one playerFaction?

Code: Select all

battle.AddFaction('Enemies', playerFaction=True)
