Hey, I am unsure if it's possible, but I was thinking of making an rpg game, but instead of when you fight you go to the combat screen, you equip different skills (1-0 all are gonna be hotkeys, and basic attack is click) And you can fight enemies on the map itself. Like, they are walking around and you can walk up to them, and just fight it out right there. I'm wondering if rpg maker would be the right program to use for such a task. I know that It's a "combat screen" kinda maker and it's like heroes on one side, and monsters on the other. I'm just curious if it's possible to do something like this. (Let me know if someone else has the same idea, I looked a bit and couldn't find anything about it.)

What you describe is what is known as an ABS system (action battle system), and that requires scripts to pull off (unless there is a really clever way with eventing that I don't know about). Last I checked you can't use scripts in Lite, so you will need the full version to do that.

Yes, in most cases this will require a script and you can't use scripts in Ace Lite - that is one of the restrictions compared to the full version.


Theoretically it is possible to make an evented Action Battle System, but that would require someone with very good eventing knowledge and has several restrictions on what can be done and what not.


Best way is probably to wait for a sale on one of the steam resellers - Ace is usually available for around 10$ several times a year.

A video update on the progress I've been making on the cutscenes. :kaosalute:

I wonder if color LUTs is possible for RPG Maker. It would be game changer and can replace the not so good looking tint screen
new mechanic in battle where you can mentally erase enemies when you deplete all their MP instead HP. this gives you a special item of their "memory". it's pretty to do in battle so far.
Apparently MZ lets you preview move routes in the move route editor without having to start up test game. That could save a lot of time during development compared to MV, especially for a long game that uses a lot of event movement for cutscenes.
