Re: Avalon.

nice work! i was going to work on a similar project but i have a question. recently trying to use just 1 timer i think doesnt work very well since it seems to slow down depending on the processor use

the way id have a FF style battle time system would be for each entity in the battle to have its own timer (set to characters speed) how would you do this in order to not rinse the CPU and actually have each incrementing simultaneously (or to similar effect?)

Re: Avalon.

It shouldn't be difficult. I've made it with RPGMaker 2000 on a 512MB RAM computer with windows95... And it run at full speed. The trick is writing a good main loop:

Code: Select all

increase battlers atb by their speed
for each battler
if battler atb > 10000 then
perform battler turn
reset battler atb
end
end
or something like this. (as you see it isn't written in Lua )

Re: Avalon.

I would usually count down a timer and check for if it reaches 0 (timeleft <= 0), but that's just a question of semantics.

Re: Avalon.

I have a perfectly working ATB system implemented at the moment, with no noticeable change to performance.

More screenies tomorrow, and perhaps a demo by the end of the week. o/

Following a rewrite of the engine, it can now quite happily do mode 7, amongst a number of other amazing things.

Re: Avalon.

When are you going to release a demo? I'm very curious! I hope you'll release also a small game with the engine!

Re: Avalon.

Here's a screenshot from something else I've been working on, a "random tactical RPG engine".
