I finally did an array, though I think it needs work. I had it add a bunch of states passively. Except I put death in the array by mistake, so the second I hit new game the screen instantly went to game over. Is that what it's like to play dark souls?
I moved back to MV awhile ago, having effekseer, mz, and clip paint was turning my laptop fan into an attack helicopter. But I did learn some tricks so it wasn't a waste. Just wish I would have bought it for steam though in case I got a new comp.
Made a simple system where one troop can be controlled by variables to change the 3 monsters that appear in it. Pretty much inspired by Pokemon-like games where you fight similar grouped battles over and over.
