I'm a bit hesitant to go with it since I'll have less control for abnormal battle functionalities when the needs arise. And also, what's the license/term of use for those scripts?

You need to credit him for the script, and it can't be a commercial project. And trust me, this script can do just about everything, and if it can't, blizz has probably made an addon to let you, XD I can't think of any of the quintessence battles that couldn't have been set up in 5 secconds (not exagurating) with blizzABS. He even released a separate program that you use to configure the script! It's user friendly, easy to set up and use, powerful, and doesn't cause any lag.

Yeah, I won't be using it then. :-X Not saying that it isn't a great system of course, it certainly is, but. Plus, it feels rather empty to use something that's not mine for a major function. I might try to commission/trade him for a CMS though, although I doubt he's taking those at the moment.

So it will be commercial?

And what kind of CMS do you want? Like the one your using in Q or more like default RMXP, or..?

Well blizz did make a CMS. It even supports the use of pictures for a skin (aka, rather than a windowskin, it can draw pictures you make instead. That makes it really customizable.) Plus its a really good menu, and is lag free (Even though it's animated)

@Zeka:
Maybe. :-X Hm, I'm not too sure about what kind of CMS I'm going for actually. But probably more like Q than default RMXP.

@Legacy:
Yeah I think I remember seeing it around, it was very nice. But again, won't be able to - unless perhaps if I trade something with him for it and if he accepts. But still, that'd kinda defeats the point of "CMS" though. (P.S. You're one dedicated Blizz-fan. :P He's awesome though, so understandable.)

Yah, I like his scripts. And unless you learn to script, you can't make any decent custom game engine stuff (let's face it, even the DBS is better than the quintessence battle system, feature wise). Its just how you use the scripts that adds the custom attribute to it.

Have you been around in the 2k3 days?

But yeah, again, I won't be using it. I might just script it instead of trading music with someone for it or something; trading compositions gets a little tiring after a while, and it feels a bit at loss when I have to give the songs up in the end. :P

I know that you can make good stuff via eventing. But scripting just has so much power, and is a lot cleaner. I've seen lots of great event CMS systems, but it'd be so much easier just to write a script.

Yeah that's very true, I completely agree. But that's not what you said. :p

http://quintessence-tbv.com/MockupWIP_LyrT.mp3


A little mockup WIP to the title theme! I changed my original title screen plan from a just a 2x-sized scene of Ralle and Lyra sitting on the log like in that ss posted earlier, to a Quintessence-esque seamless transition title screen instead.

Here's how it's planned to go at the moment:

1. During the first celesta's phrase (0:00-0:04), the logo ("Freebird Games"?) fades in and out.

2. It then fades onto a (black&white) map that's a road by a cliff, and pans down - child Ralle and child Lyra are sitting on the log,

3. When the crescendo happens, the screen fades into white and then immediately fades back; this time into full colour, and Ralle and Lyra are now grown up, with them sitting at the same spot and Ralle playing guitar. In front of them are a crowd of travelers dropping by to listen to the show. The title "Lyra's Song" and "Start/Continue" etc. fades in at the side.


(That title screen isn't the main theme; the one posted on opening post is still the main theme.)

Yep. They are quite noticeable by my naked eye.

Those choices below sounded familiar. Weren't they also in Quintessence?

Thanks Path. Yeah, there're lots of tiles that need to be edited as it stands now. The water autotile is also lighter than the waterfall. :~

And yep, the choices are the same as Quintessence (I think Quintessence's Start is "Destiny Anew" instead of "Start Anew" though).

x_x I've never seen what's wrong with "New Game, Continue, and Quit" myself, XD

And hurray for the Quintessence Camios, and it seems Alden and Petal are close to holding hands  :-*
