How could I make an RPG game that uses a top-down system for fighting? I want to see if I could make a fighting system that isn't turn based, and more like... the first Legend of Zelda style-fighting. That's where you can walk around, see enemy sprites, and they can attack you from there without getting into a whole battle scene. I was thinking that it could work by making projectiles, but I still have no idea.

Is there any way I can make a fighting system like that work? If so, is there an already existing script or maybe a different game engine that I could use (besides RPG Maker)?

You could try the XAS ABS script.

Sorry about that, Shaz. I'm still new to this site!

Anyways, where can I find this XAS ABS script?

 …I think I might need to switch from standard ATK/DEF up/down buffs to parameter altering states. I just had an actor whose usual attack against an enemy does ~25 do a buffed attack against a debuffed enemy for ~600…
just saw that titan quest is free on steam until the 23rd
Zombie status is now complete. I didn't have to do much in the way of changing how healing is applied to undead targets, was just a simple 3 line code. I thought I had to overhaul Game_Action lol. Everything else was doable by events. So.. Zombie: You turn undead. Your element changes to darkness. You're weak to light, you're strong to physical attacks and healing hurts you and revival items will kill you.
My Overworld might be a mix of inspiration from 2D Final Fantasy games, Breath of Fire, Battlechasers: Nightwar, Super Mario World, and Pillars of Eternity. If I can make it more in-depth than just walking from point A to point B, that might do a lot for the gameplay experience. Hmm...
