I have a project in VX I want to bring to ace but never could because of YEM ot being on Ace! Thank you so very much.

I love YEM! Is it going to have all the features YEM had?

Also what other features are you planning on with the more than that comment?

There are some example on making skills from my old demo. Please take a look at them before making your own skills (if you are new to Melody/Symphony).

Also, You can take a look at Melody Demo to know more about Melody/Symphony Tags. However, some skills in Melody might not work with Symphony because of a few differences between two engine tags, and I haven't ported all of melody tags to Symphony.

It would be nice If someone help me on porting all melody tags as well as writing tutorial on making skills :">.

For the lazy reader's information, this script is compatible with anything Yanfly, which makes Yami's sideview battle system super mega hot.

I read in your blog on your website that you must have programming knowledge to create and customize actions, can you go into a bit of detail on this? What exactly do I Need to know, and is it possible to create a tutorial to just teach how to create skills with your system without needing to know the ins and outs of programming?

Thanks for your time

Creating Actions means creating another symphony tags. For example: I don't have a symphony tag for Guardian Summon now (my script on last engine), so If you want to make a skill that do something before summon, you must make a symphony tag for Summon, and that requires some programming knowledge. And about making skill, I have a manual as well as a demo there, you can learn a lot from them :)

I don't understand what you mean.

Anyway, You can edit or redistribute this battle system as your own system.

And I'm gonna make a script that help guys to make action sequence by script and array. However, I still recommend you to make action sequence by notetags.

I really love this battle system it's very easy to set up. However I believe I have found two bugs.

The first and most important to me is the counterattack glitch. For some reason the default has your actors mimic the enemies attack when they counter, including their attack power. So if the enemies attack animation is a claw you couter with a claw too, and it's a very weak counterattack.

The other bug I found is when an enemy has collapse effect set to boss, when they die the collapse effect takes place way to the left of the screen.

Could you please fix these, especially the counterattack one? Thanks!

  • Fixed: Problem with enemy sprites.
  • Fixed: Problem with status redrawing.
  • Fixed: Problem with Immortal Flag. Now has an option to toggle this fix in Configuration Section.

That was fast :)

but the counter glitch is still there :(

this time counterattacks don't do any damage at all, and they still use the enemy's attack animation.

After 2 years of writing, planning and outlining I finally finished the first draft of my first book in its entirety! I'll admit I got a little lazy with some of the word and description on those last 10 pages but that what 2and and 3rd drafts are forrrr, now after 20 hours of no sleep imma nap for 2 hours before my kid wakes me up to try and play.
Think of the potential now that picking up object is possible!
My first Video Scene - Kraken Art By @whtdragon -

Still needs work but its a start.
Considering a side project of making a Choose Your Own Adventure in MV but letting people play it as YouTube videos with the choices at the end leading to other videos. Thoughts?
I've made a rudimentary prototype map for the first game with the MV RTP overworld tiling. I'm probably going to photoshop the crap out of it for parallax, but the prototype has given me new ideas about how I want to place dungeons in the game.
