Yay for helpful communities. All it took was Andar kicking my brain out of stupid mode and I managed to finish all the eventing and script calls to work out the major kinks in my magic and skills systems.
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
