New Game +

This project is for new designers. It has all of the awesome features from Runewind Saga and the most adaptable and memory efficient system files. It took me 2 years of work to set these up but you can have them for free. The original presets don't come anywhere close to what I have done, and they teach you the wrong way to do things. Below I have listed everything you get, and 500,000 free memory. Complete your game in as little as 3 months!

Everything was designed to splurge memory on the visible part of the game while doing the invisible parts as efficiently as possible. With this system in place I am almost done with my second game and its only been about 3 months. Yes you can make your game in as little as 3 months with this system in place. I done all of the boring work for you, all you have to do is design your maps and script your game scenes.

STATISTICS

Abilities: 309 - everything you could possibly want. Just rename them.
Items: 355 - do not delete or sort items, abilities, direct effects, or indirect effects.
Direct Effects: 131 - the names have been used for random names of villagers.
Indirect Effects: 79 - the names have been used for random monster names.
Scripts: 380 - All of your system files, and special features.
Events: 289 - Everything you need and then some.
Party Members: 16 - do not add or delete members and classes.
Classes: 15 - They are involved in many scripts you would then need to change.
Building Editor: 180 - Everything you need to start making dungeons in object placement
Map Editor: 12 - World map, underwater, hell, encamp, morphing space, snowfields, towns
Dungeon Editor: 27 - Floorplans, pirate ship, shops, submarine, castle, pyramid
Visual Effects 170 - many of these I custom designed myself. combine them in scripts.
Weapons: 16 different weapon types, some with special VFX when they crit.
Vehicles: 7 vehicles are already set and ready to go. (see vehicle combat)

FULL DUNGEONS

Pirate Ship: travel by boat and you will be warped here.
Castle: a 22 room castle. You start test play here, it is peaceful. Enjoy.
Hell: Kill a wandering merchant and you will end up here. Be careful...

TOWNS

Sidon: Includes the Arena where any party member fights monsters 1 on 1.
Taramura: Just a nice town, one of my favorite maps that I decided to keep.
All Shops: weapon, armor, magic, item, church, training hall, tavern.
All campsites: including the boat, airship, submarine, dragon, 3 terrains, and shops.

OTHER GRAPHIX

World Map 1: The world map from Runewind Saga. Enjoy
World Map 2: The ocean floor of the world map from Runewind Saga.
Morphing Space: A sample of some odd sea designs in the map editor.
Castle 3: a big OV castle map done in the map editor.
Snowfields: Kept because the snow encamp is on this map.
Farlan Restored: kept because castle outside uses this map.
Pyramid: Samples of object placement from the great pyramid
Ninja base: Samples of various rooms from various ninja clans
Dark Throne: skull room, black throne, samples from Tyranna
Frozen Throne: Samples from Aquaveil.


FEATURES

1) 16 party members each with their own event, model selection, and character script when you talk to them at a campsite or inn. Their normal flags and variables are used for a great many features.

2) Enemy Level Up: Enemies gain level. The level is equal to the first party members level. If you set the variable Max Enemy Level they will not exceed it. Note that XP recieved is multiplied, but does not count towards XP needed for class. So a level 10 enemy with 10 xp gives you 100, but you still only get 10 xp towards the class. The enemy stats use his battle variables. His battle input is a unique special attack, with the battle input ability.

3) Multi Team Setup: Team Confirm lets the player build his own multi teams. The cellphone is used to switch teams. I have made scripts for 3 teams, if you need more you will need to make additional scripts and variables.

4) Elemental Weapons: The element VFX is added to the weapon VFX in directing. You get one of each element for each type of weapon. Each elemental weapon has a special elemental proc in custom effects.

5) Vehicle Combat: the party is changed when entering a vehicle and member 15, airship, is added. This member is level 99 and starts off strong, but you can buy upgrades in the vehicle shop. Each party member has a flag that should be on if they are in the party.

6) Cellphone and Changing the Party: If you add members in directing make sure to turn their flags on. These are not normal flags, their custom made ones. There are also register flags for each member. If register flags aren't on then you have never met that member and may not add them to the party with character join or cellphone. Cellphone lets you summon them from anywhere if their normal flag 3 is on. Character Join sorts the world number and lets you talk to them if they aren't already in your party. If you have a full party they leave.


SYSTEM SCRIPTS

Ability Directing, Weapon Directing, Enemy Directing, Item Directing, Healing/Support, Status Attack, Indirect Turn, Random Names.

2) Random Treasure System: All you need to do is branch in random chest with a variable for each dungeon and have it set at the max number of random treasure you want in that dungeon. Keep in mind if you place any of the 10 chest events more then once you will have to use make temp flag branches in the chest scripts. When you make specific treasure all you have to do is make the branch condition, and set the item number to the item you want the party to find. The rest is already taken care of for you in chest options.

3) Random Villager System: 10 villager events/scripts with specific talk when sorting world. There is also universal random talk which includes many of the useless ability descriptions from enemy abilities, etc. 22 male models and 22 female models chosen at random. There are also guards, and special people inside the taverns and church. These are also random.

4) Warps 1-12: Sort world number and when necessary room number. This lets you have a maximum of 12 different warps on a single map + Warp to World, which uses escape.

5) Class System: In class info, shows a textbox with the stat percantage modifier, a textbox with weapons and armor they can use, and a short description in normal text. The classes themselves are in the villager events when shops flag is on (in the training hall) so there is a different trainer for each class. Normal variables 1, 2, and 3 are set to classes the party member can have. For a more memory efficient version of this, change the class directly in the class info script. The actual class change screen is never used, and I don't suggest using it unless you don't want exclusive classes. Please do not make bogus classes to
make the normal selection screen exclusive, it sucks to see them in status.

6) Model Save: Each character was a different model for each class they can use. Using the class info display, their model number = class number. This script saves the model and changes it to what the player selected every time they enter a map.

7) Battle System: Daggers, bows, guns, and thrown will deal damage based on agility, not strength. Whips and staffs use defense. Sound weapons use spirit.

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR GAME (this is all you really have to do)

0) Learn from example: try messing around, but as if with the presets you can learn the proper way to do things by observing the way I have set them up. I have included a couple completely designed towns and dungeons, so copy these formats and make them your own.

1) Design your maps in map editor, and your dungeons in object placement. You save huge memory by using dungeon editor only for floorplans and big dungeons, use object placement whenever possible. WARNING: always save before placing buildings in object placement. Sometimes the game will freeze up and crash when you place too many.

2) Design your warps and chests: For chests just placing them is enough, but when you want specific treasures make a branch in world number and a specific flag. For warps, make an entry in world number and room number. On the world map there is a single warp that sorts the Y party coordinate. Doing it this way saves quite a bit of memory.

3) Use variable Quest Progress to advance the storyline in your game. Use enter map scripts for directing, as well as directive 1, directive 2, castle king and queen, special talk, etc for directing. Always sort the world number and when applicable room number. These 2 variables are also saved for each team in multi team setups. When you make a directing script start with condition: quest progress is 1. Then quest progress +1.

4) Character development: You need to set up periods of specific character talk based on quest progress. In the scrip "Encamp Talk", make the variable encamp talk = number based on quest progress. This needs to be for the ship flag, shop flag, submarine flag, and airship flags where applicable. Then go into each members character script, sort this variable and write the dialogue they will say. At the bottom in no appliation is random dialogue.

5) Party Commentary: Call this script in directing when you don't know who is in the party because the player controls it. It will check who is in the party, then you just need to write the script in the right world number.

6) Villagers and Shops: These are also sorted by world. Just find the right scripts and set up the text and merchant lists. Place the warps for the shops as described above in event placement.

7) Boss Battles: you have to turn on the Boss Flag before the event battle command. This controls a number of things including preventing the party from running away.

8) Items, abilities, indirect effects: Try to rename them and adjust their stats. If you are trying to make something special note follow the path into script and find its number. Please do not delete anything, or sort the databases as this will mess up the entire system. If you add data thats fine, look for the scripts that deal with it and patch them.

FLAGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT AND USE

No remove member: turn on when you want to prevent player from removing members.
Quest menu Off: turn on when you want to prevent the quest menu completely.
Boss Flag: always turn on before boss battles. Battle exit turns it off.
No Escape: use when you want to block escape.
Ghost Town: if this flag is on all random villagers are replaced with ghosts.
Small Town: if this flag is on event and party size will be 50%
Extra Dodge all: off after battle. When on enemies dodge 70% of all attacks.
No Random Talk: When on villagers will not have random conversation when talking.

VARIABLES YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT AND USE

World Number: Used everywhere. Change on every transition
Quest Progress: controls advancement of storyline, boss battles, etc.
Room Number: Coordinates different rooms in a single dungeon.
Quest 1-7 and Quest Log: If you use the quest system feature
Hero Level: member 0s level. This is normal enemy level and controls some abilities.
??? Love 1-4: affection variables. Used with character scripts.
Gold Level: the money you get from gold points. Increase with story.
Gold Points: the number of times a player may draw from gold points.
Max Monster Level: set with game progress.
Active Level: raise or lower to change the enemy level before an event battle.
Dungeon Variables (600+): the number of random treasures available in each dungeon.

OTHER

Member 12 is immune to the dragonball ability.
Member 1 has extra dodge in Attack Success.
Member 13 and 15 are immune to all status and death attacks.
Repair: only works for members 13 and 15.
Image: ability only works for members 0,1, and 2. Change these in Attack Success.
Vanish: ability only works for member 8, 9, and 0 if bonus class is thief.

Finally, if you have any additional questions post them here and I will answer them.

Re: New Game +

Yeah I was browsing these forums and saw something about a new designer asking for tips or what not. Then I remember all the stuff I went through and how many times I had to change everything to get the memory I needed and it just hit me, why not spent the rest of the night taring Runewind apart, leaving only the features and system files, then sharing it with everyone? Its a great engine, I'm surprised at how fast things are moving along now.

I had to find some way to make the boring parts of the design process fun. So I took it upon myself to enjoy the challenge of doing what some say couldn't be done or finding some creative solutions to something. I think I've taken some things farther then the Agetec designers imagined it could go.

One feature I didn't keep was the random battle system. For places with a very exclusive set of enemies, it would teleport on normal battle, then select random battles on enter. Its better to duplicate floor events for random battle, teleporting makes entering battles a few seconds longer and using it in the wrong dungeons could upset things. I only used it in a few places, but still.

Theres two unit placements, and a random battle walk over event. If someone wants a better solution then that, the'll just have to come up with it. Someone had said something about event pages. Unit placements cost 3664 memory. So the focus was some way to make a handful of enemies appear all over the map. Placing a walk over event 100s of times adds up eventually and battles won't work in step indirect effect so I'm not sure if there are any better solutions. All I know is you can have a unit placement have some enemies it doesn't place at all. On maps you only get the placed units. In dungeons you get them all so what you do is make the unplaced ones have high ratios so only they are encountered in the dungeon.

Re: New Game +

Theres no password on mine, I removed it long before I went to drive.

Just to be sure I downloaded the game again from this link and there was no password. Im in RPGM2 now with it loaded, no password.

Are you sure you didn't download the ps3 version?
Did you uncrush the game file?

Other then that I don't know what other problem you could be having here.

Re: New Game +

both runewind saga and the new game + save have the same file name, so they can get mixed up.

only runewind saga has a walkthrough in the package though.
