Before you post on my wall, think long and hard about whether your question/comment would be better off being posted in the forum instead.

My message wall is for speaking to me as a person (or as the founder of this wiki, on the rare occasion that that matters). I am not a help-desk.

  • Maruno sorry to ask, but can you tell me when it comes out next version of the starter?

    Because I'm starting a pokémon project and would like to use the latest of their starter kit. I thought of developing in Unity more like you said to a colleague, it is not worth investing in an IDE as a game unlike its own. So I decided to invest in RPGMXP myself. And make a fan game for pokemon fans. Note: Sorry for my English, but I think you understood.

  • Hey Maruno, I love the wiki page, has helped me out a ton, I know that you said questions go on the forums, but this is kind of a specific question that I was hoping to be answered by you directly. Okay, so I have been making a Pokemon game using RPGMAKER XP, and I'm using Pokemon Essentials, I absolutely love it, now I have been working on a game for a week now, and it's nowhere near completion. This game is...well...On the major crude side. Filled with cuss words, and weird scenarios. I was wondering if when and if my game gets finished, if this would be an appropriate website to post it on. Because it is indeed extremely crude, and not appropriate in any way shape or form. I was wondering if there were rules about games like that not being allowed on this site or not. I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

      I'll stop you there. Since other people may also have this same question, it belongs on the forum, which is the main place to find information that isn't on the wiki proper. The "Wiki Discussion" section is the most appropriate place for this question.

  • Hi Maruno, i love what you guys are doing, thanks for all the effort.I have a question and hope you can maybe help me. Whenever i use the run command in trainer battle in debug mode there is a call command that comes up, do you maybe know what the problem is?

  • Hi Maruno. You do a great job, by the way.

    Just a small issue. RPG Maker XP is starting to become an older and older product, with customer support for the product virtually non-existent. I don't know if unsustainable is the right word to use, but I fear that RPG Maker and therefore Essentials is becoming unsustainable.Have you ever considered using another program, (maybe one more up to date) to continue doing Essentials on? Obviously, just something to think about for the future.

    Also, I know people have stated that Essentials will probably always run on XP, but this could prove most inefficient for the future, especially for new users wanting to use Essentials.

    • RMXP still manages to do what it does, and it's fairly simple to get to grips with. There are many tutorials online. RMXP is still being sold, so it's still available. I don't think it's in any danger of becoming unusable.

      Pokémon Essentials was made for RMXP, and unless there are some major happenings in the future, Essentials will remain an RMXP project. And that's all it needs to be, really. That's its niche.

      While there is certainly an opportunity to create a new Pokémon game engine using more modern software, I feel that it should also strive to be better than Essentials, rather than strictly trying to mimic it. For example, this new game engine should probably have 3D maps, rather than 2D ones. This would allow the new engine to fill a different niche, rather than competing directly with Essentials. I imagine the newer engine would be capable of more impressive things, but would consequently also be more difficult to use and develop for (e.g. making 3D models is more difficult than drawing 2D sprites/tiles). I don't think there's a need for the new engine to limit itself to just what Essentials can already do.

      I've certainly considered making such a new game engine myself (e.g. in Unity). However, it's an awful lot of work, and if I'm putting in all that effort, I think I'd prefer to make something original with it and be able to make money off it. I'll always be supportive of other people attempting it, though, and will offer my assistance if a project looks promising. At this stage, though, I don't think that I personally will try making a whole new Pokémon game engine.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for all you do for this wiki! The tutorials are amazingly helpful, and being the one admin on a popular wiki takes a lot of work!

  • Thank you for correcting my correction on "Defining a move". Since "the PBS files are wrong," where can I help update them? I am comfortable using most version control systems.

      Loading editor
    • I'm the only version control system Essentials has. I already knew of the problem, and I'll sort it out for the next version. Just pointing out any issues you spot is generally good enough.

      There is absolutely no problem with the two target types being switched around for now. They're not used for anything; all affected moves have their effects hard-coded. Other target types have an effect on things, but these two don't. It's nothing to worry about.

  • I read somewhere about making a talk page if you had a problem, may i ask why my page was removed? And also why i didnt get any response about the removal? I'm not directly asking you for help as you have stated that this is not what this page is for but i'd like to know why it was deleted.

      Loading editor
    • You read incorrectly. You should ask questions on the forum, which is a separate part of the wiki. I deleted the page you'd made because it was a mainspace page, meaning it sat alongside "Defining an ability" and "Metadata" and the rest, which is obviously inappropriate.

    • Oh okay, thanks for the explanation!

  • If you wondered what happened to that page, I'll say this. Somebody tried to change the title of the "List of fangames" to "List of Pokemon Essential Fangames" with the unnecessary addition of YUS, and I tried to revert it back via the use of history--but, unfortunately the title did not revert back. So I renamed it to "List of Fangames", only for me to realized it used to be called "List of fangames" and I can't seem to rename it back into that without adminstrator access.

    Oh yeah, are you the only adminstrator of this Wiki?

      Loading editor
    • Fixed. Thanks for trying.

      Yes, I'm the only admin on this wiki. I also own it. I don't think there's any need for more staff at the moment, considering how little activity it gets.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I think it's not really to necessary to have that much staff with the little activity.

      But since this is a Wiki though, we shouldn't let vandalism just slide through... Although, I'm sure you noticed changes like that eventually.

        Loading editor
    • I don't think that was intentional vandalism. I look at every edit made on this wiki (because there are only a few a day), and act accordingly.

        Loading editor
    • Thinking about it, you're right. But well, I guess it's good to know you watch every change being done.

  • Hi Maruno!

    First of all, thanks for keeping Pokémon Essentials alive :)!

    Second of all, I would like to contribute a nice amount of images I collected and use myself. How can I send you these?

    Kind Regards,

    Rolf

    • What images are they, where did you get them from, and do you have all the credits required or asked for?
