Just wanting to get some opinions on what people might like in the next version, whether it is in the readme, or actual program. Right now, I am writing a developers guide that will explain how to make random enemies and show how to access a battle system, will explain how to add characters for hit detection, etc.

I haven't seen your old Readme so I don't know if you do this or not, but one thing I really like is examples.  Instead of just saying, this function is used to do hit-detection, say here is a sample program using simple hit-detection.  Then break the program down piece by piece and explain what each part is doing.

The original does that, and I might add it to the developer's guide...

I thought about using this for my RPG, but I hate using things that I don't code, I have made mine work really well, maybe I realease my engines for other people

I thought about doing that with my engine, but I looked back at my engine and decided that I would have to change a lot of things to make them user friendly.  And a lot of my engine is very specific to the needs that I have so I figured it wouldn't make much sense to release it unless someone was going to make a very similar style game.

something about pause menus, saving your game, and maybe an actual dungeon or town as an example of how to code them
One of these days I'll get a sig I'm really proud of.

How could you come up with original gameplay ideas then?

It would be to show the newer programmers how to do anything.

I am including things like that, but if they need help, I will point them to my forums and here. :)smile.gif

There is of course no way to cover every possibility the rpgsk is capable of handling...

I really don't notice much of a difference in speed...

The RPGSK was the first homescreen RPG I downloaded, so I originally thought all RPGs were that fast.
Then I played Illusiat XII...big difference...

You should put in a worthless delay loop just so people like me don't assume all Basic games are fast.
