GTBSv2.4 for VX Ace!  

GTBS has been a side project of mine for many years. After deciding to learn scripting all the way back in 2006 so that I could create a game with it. The system is now completely functional in RPG Maker VX Ace. The system boast a number of features including:

  • Tactical/Grid based Battle
  • Smart/Configurable AI
  • Note Tag Configuration of MOST options
  • Animated Battler System (Now supports Holder/Minkoff as well as GTBS animated sprites)
  • Action List - A list of actions(movement, icons, screen etc) that should be played when a skill is used
  • Mini Side View Battle Integration 
  • Summons
  • Configurable skill/weapon ranges
  • MGC Layy Meta Engine (3d Isometric) support
  • Many many more!

If you have any questions regarding setup or advanced functions, please start at the FAQ page on the Wiki

If you still cannot find the answer your looking for please visit the Forums to post your question. You can also create new bug reports from the New Issues tab to report it as a bug in GTBS.

I've now got 5 battles set for a game with 2.3... How easy is it to upgrade later to newer formats?

The easiest method is to use the script importer/exporter.  

1. First, open the new demo.  

2. Select the Import/Export script.  

3. Set Export to true.  

4. Test run the game to have it export the scripts. 

5. Copy the 'Scripts' folder from the Demo Project to your Project under the same name/location. 

6. Open the editor for your game. 

7. Select the Import/Export script. 

8. Set the IMPORT to true.

9. Test run your game.

10. It will import the scriprts (Note that your 'script sections' must be of the same name for them to import without reporting "missing headers")

11. Close your editor (without saving) and reopen. 

12. Your scripts have now been fully updated to the latest version.

Are you add-ons, edits to GTBS?  Perhaps they are something that everyone may like.  We can possibly add them to the core GTBS for others to use.  If you are interested of course.

GubiD, i heard that you're implementing (or implemented) support for takentai animations during the attack animations. Are you planning to add support for the animations of the symphony engine, from Dr. Yami?

So far it's cleaning up some aesthetics. Some windows are bigger then needed, so I'm re-arranging some and making the windows smaller.

 

Also working on the mouse-over status window to move to left side when the mouse is on right side of map.

Nosleinad,

Does it support Takentai animations?  Takentai animations are nothing more than movements with the addition of animations entertwined.  And to answer that, it is YES.  However, I did my own implementation.  This method will be used much like that of the Victor Engine, but a little easier to understand (I hope).  Weapon Icons and any number of animation calls and dmg deals are already part of the system.  However the movement engine is not complete yet.  In fact, I am working on it right now.  I hope to release it with v2.4 in a couple weeks.

Yes, I know about the status windows being a bit large.  If I wasn't working on the movement stuff right now, I would revise the creation of the dialog a bit to make it smaller.  I have even though about just removing all the status bars and drawing them over the characters.  And using balloons to identify status effects as well.  That would open lots of area for the status dialog to only display the remaining info.

  Actually the symphony engine works through built in tags, that goes directly in the skill noteboxes (if i want to make random movements with the sprites). It works very differently from takentai.

  It supports holder, kaduki and 8D spritesheets.

That is precisely what I am doing actually.  I will have to check out some of those 8D sprites so I can add support for them as well.

Here is what I've come up with so far for battle status:

 

You can turn on ATB and TP bars.
