I know it's an old script. But what are the terms? Can I use this in a commercial project? Any credits required or is it public domain?
I second Napoleon, I really would like to know the terms of this script.

The dropbox link is down. Does anyone have a copy of the demo?

I was doing some cleaning up on my Dropbox to make room for better/revamped scripts and demos.


Here's a link but it's not going to be permanent. [Link]

This script looks fantastic and I'm thinking of using it in several of my projects, but I'm curious about something. Would it be possible to use this script to generate particles as effects for things like skills and status conditions? (For example animated flames when a character is on fire, or a beam which doesn't jarringly cut off at the end based on image size for an animation.)

Now this has me thinking about the possibilities on what I can do with this script. I'd like to see if I can set up an evented trap that fires a sweeping beam, which does damage on contact based on where it is.

Noticed small bug: Particles are rendered under "starred" tiles. Can anyone fix it?

This script is truly awesome!! I had a question that I don't think I saw answered here though, but is it possible to make the effects bigger? Like I want to make it look like a building is on fire for example...

Quick report: when calling Name Input Processing on a map with particle events running, the game crashes. The error cited is in eval of Game_Interpreter, so it's tough for me to figure out exactly where the problem lies.

I've also gotten this same crash when doing something completely different. I had about 6-8 particle effects set to display after a switch turns on. Once it does, the game crashes, same error in Game_Interpreter.

I noticed something really strange, the fires move towards the direction you run, so if you run left all fires in the map will point to left and vice versa for every single direction.

I third this motion! However, finding out might be pretty darn tricky. PK8 is taking a hiatus at the moment and Arevulopapo developed this back in 2007 and left no mention of terms... Unless we hear back from both PK8 (Hiatus) and Arevulopapo (missing in action / retired) we have no way of knowing terms of use for this script.

Having the same problem, but this only occurs on a specific map; the other ones work fine.


Any wonder why this is bugging?

I don't have the original file, but I think this is what was in it. (I don't have the demo either)

@Kim_Shyuen I've put a copy of the demo in my dropbox. You can get it here.
However, I will need to delete it quite soon as my dropbox is getting very full. Please let me know when you've got it so that I can delete it.

My laptop has been restarting for around ten minutes. Not updating. I am concerned.
So I was making this thing for the battle system, to give it that extra fancy


...but then I came across this by accident while trying to debug another issue

Hey this dragonbones thing is pretty neat huh...
Game making its such a lonely process, good thing I have plenty of time for myself I guess...
