Alright, I have decided to release the source code to Pokemon Beta for everyone.

I don't expect anyone to be able to finish the engine, but you can learn a lot about how I programmed and tackled the various challenges along the way (sometimes not the best way to do it, and I recognize that)

This is the engine when I left the project, DaSpirit has continued building on it and so has a better one.

If this helps you, please tell me. And if you use pieces of it, I would like credit (not necessary though, but don't claim the parts of my code as your own).

If you have any questions, ask and I'll try answering them. I expect there will be quite a few because of the lack of good comments.

It can be downloaded here: .gm6 and .gmk.

[EDIT] For some reason, starting a new game causes vista to freeze. So you can use my save file, just put this file in the same directory as the game. Hopefully that will make vista work.

I don't understand why you're getting this error. It works fine for me in both gm6 and gm7...

Oh, woops.

I liked to listen to my own music when programming and debugging, so I disabled the sound. It's in a variable in the obj_superior create event, I'll change it when I get home today.

to be honest, I was hoping people wouldn't start replacing sprites. This is really to see how I tackled the various problems which could help another person figure out their own way.

He have right, if you want to do a pokemon game MAKE YOUR OWN ENGINE don't take others. Use other like help to make one. And have gml-skills before you make one. else DROP IT.

Oh the game freeze when it's play.

No, It took me a while to understand the source. It looked completely confusing at beginning the source is scattered around.

I'm trying to make the NPC battle you seeing how it isn't implemented

eafg2~You have terrible grammar, punctuation and spelling. Please read what your typing.

He have right, if you want to do a pokemon game MAKE YOUR OWN ENGINE don't take others. Use other like help to make one. And have gml-skills before you make one. else DROP IT.


You can't just stop people from editing it and also its open-source not help-source.

He have right

Err.....I'm going to have to agree has I have absolutely no idea what your trying to say.

And have gml-skills before you make one. else DROP IT.

You have no right telling people to quit making a game because they don't have enough skill. Maybe they will find a simpler way around things.

I have never said that I have perfect grammar ect. I say that I think, have respect for that.
I don't force people to stop but there are to many not so good pokémon game.
Lets say like this, if you do your own engine everything will be more easy to edit, fix, add ect.
I was maybe to "hard" but what I said in line 3 is true.

The Engine is a really good learning experience. One thing I noticed and that I cant seem to fix is that once you have caught more than 6 pokemon and go heal, the screen fills up with never ending pokeballs.

All in all, amazing engine!

Perhaps if you wanted to use this just to enlighten people on certain aspects of a Pokemon game, you should have called it an example in lieu of an engine. An example is to explain or show, but an engine is a platform off which to make a game.
