TANKENTAI FOR VX ACE created by: Enu

CURRENT VERSION: 100

COMMERCIAL USE: Available (click here for proof!)

 

 

(check out the video tutorial that goes with this guide!)

 

 

 

Getting Started:

Make sure you have all of the following materials before proceeding with this tutorial:

 

Takentai v.100 from Enu's Site

v.099 Animations.rvdata2 File

 

 

STEP 1: Download the Script

Google translate should kick in and reformat the entire web page. What you're looking for is a tiny little orange-ish link that says Sideview100.zip

 

 

 

 

STEP 2: Copy/Paste the Scripts

Place the five scripts into your Script Editor underneath (â–¼ Materials) but above (â–¼ Main Process). Keep them in the same order that Enu provides and preferably with the same names.

 

 

 

 

STEP 3: Insert Custom Graphics

Open up Enu's demo and go into the Resource Manager. Scroll through the folders to see which ones are custom graphics. You'll know this by the little red dot that appears next to the names. You're going to have to export these files and then re-import them into your game under the same folder names in the Resource Manager. You can also just import them from Enu's Graphic folder directly into your project if you know how to find it. Refer to the video for this step if you are still confused.

 

 

 

 

STEP 4: Replace Animations File

If you downloaded the animations.rvdata2 file already (the link is above if you have not) then this should be fairly simple. Open up Your Project's folder and double click on the Data Folder. Once inside you should see a number of files that look similar to the one you just downloaded. Paste the new animations.rvdata2 file into this folder and then hit Move and Replace. You should be good to go.

 

 

 

 

STEP 5: Test your Game

Pretty self explanatory, yeah? Happy developing!

 

 

 

Only five steps? Really? Yes ladies and gentlemen, it is that simple. However, there is still so much more you can do with this script as the guide provided here just barely scratches the surfaces of the basics. For example, what about adding guns or animated enemies? Is that even possible? You'll have to follow the link below to find out! By the way, if you encounter any errors with the program, make sure to post below or to post in the error/add-on collection guide page. If I can't assist you, I'm positive another very well versed member of this excellent community will. 

 

Your friendly neighborhood,

Just found this today. Thanks for this! ;)

 

By the way, putting all the scripts in your project eliminates the fades between menus and battles and the title screen and such, and just replaces them with an instantaneous transition. Removing the last script in the list fixes this problem.

 

EDIT: Okay... I've used this script for a little while and it worked, and now, out of NOWHERE, this error appears whenever I get in a battle.

I tried removing all the custom scripts from my project and bringing back the one that caused the transition problem, and it didn't fix the problem. And this only happens in the game - not in battle test mode. Any idea what's wrong?

I haven't had a chance to test this one out yet, but if I remember right, a very similar thing happened to me. (In fact, I think I remember recieving that exact same error message) Check to see if you have a battleback determined for the map you have the fight in. If there isn't a battleback, the battle camera script has issues. Now, this error occured for me while I was testing the game and not playing the actual game...but hey, programs and scripts are buggy in different ways. Try my battleback theory and let me know if it works or not. ;)

 

You can set the battleback of a map by right-clicking on the map and selecting map properties. Then go to Specify Battleback. Make sure it is checked and is set to your desired Battleback.

 

Good luck!

EDIT: NM I've decided to try working with the Victor animated system. Sorry to bother =/

 

I understand and apologize for not being able to reply to your post in time. :(

 

I myself tried using Victor's Animated Battler system and as he states on his site and the script, it really isn't newbie friendly. That is ultimately why I ended up going with the Tankentai for Ace. And so I offer a word of caution.

 

If you still need help or assistance with your project, I will glady provide any tips and pass along the knowledge I have aquired over my time using RMVXA. ;)

 

Always looking to help,

Thank you!

 

Glad I could help! Best of luck with your project! :D

Just curious if this will generate anymore interest...

 

Let me know! wink.png

 

P.S. I'm always willing to help with any technical issues you guys may run in to. I'm getting a lot better with Eventing now as well.

I'm just wondering if its possible to not make the background so zoomed in and pixelated. I like it better normal and not so zoomed in, only when attacking an enemy should the camera be zoomed in. Does this make sense? lol

Just for the record, you CAN use the click-shift-click method to select multiple files for export in the resource manager.

Woah!

 

Seems I've gotten loads of feedback and requests from you guys! I'm very sorry for the delay in answering you all...it seems I haven't set up my e-mail notifications properly. No matter! I am here now and that is all that matters.

 

I'll do my best to address each of your problems, and stay tuned for a new guide that highlights how to add guns into Tankentai Ace!

 

I'm just wondering if its possible to not make the background so zoomed in and pixelated. I like it better normal and not so zoomed in, only when attacking an enemy should the camera be zoomed in. Does this make sense? lol

 

Okay...it sounds like to me that you don't have a battleback specified for the map, which would lead me to believe you don't have Tankentai for Ace installed since Tankentai makes it impossible for the game to run without a battleback.

 

However...if you do have Tankentai in, then there must be a different issue going on.

 

Do you think you could provide a picture of your problem? I could help you out a lot better then. If not, check your battleback settings under MAP PROPERTIES.

 

I want to add a pop-up message when an attack fails or is evaded, what do I need for it?

 

The ability to read Japanese. ;)

 

I'm assuming that you want to add this to Tankentai for Ace, and with Tankentai as it is, this can be difficult. I would reccommend using google translate to try and find out remotely where the pop-up message portions of the script are.

 

To be honest, I'm not the best scripter in the world but I've been pretty good at improvising. I'll take a look into this when I have the time.

 

Thanks for the heads up and the post! :D

Go into that exact script and read me line 1238 exactly, or copy and paste it here. l'll compare it to mine, which is working, and I'll see if I can further diagnose your issue.

This one is a little perplexing. Normally, the characters should flip when evading an enemies attack.

 

Now the only thing I can think of is somewhere you're attack line in the script has been modified (I have no idea why but technology is such a tricky little thing). I'll look into this a little more in a bit. Also, do you mean that you don't even give the actors the command to attack and they attack on their own or that when you give the command to attack, the flip in the general area of the enemy instead?

 

Just for the record, you CAN use the click-shift-click method to select multiple files for export in the resource manager.

 

Lol, I tried that first. I simply stated my method as such since everytime I try and do that on my comp, RPG Maker VX Ace crashes. Its probably just me though. At any rate, if it works for you and others, awesome! I wish I could be so lucky :( (or just have a functioning computer :P)

 

Okay!

 

I think that was everyone. Phew! Now to sit and stare at the screen until someone-

 

WAIT A MINUTE! :mellow: I've got a new guide to make...

 

:wacko:

I think that in some parts in the skill if you put a skill in a certain number then a certian animation appears because when I tried to use a healing move at like skill 200 or something all it did was fade to black then open a movie and Ididn't type any of that

Okay...it sounds to me like you're attempting to insert your own skills into Tankentai Ace. Tankentai is set to read skills 1-126 which can be viewed and modified under the Database. Skill 26 is a simple Heal command set to activate along with Animation 37.

 

If you are trying to make your own modified healing command (set a skill 200) then you would need to modify Tankentai's script in order to accomodate for this. If you would like me to go in further detail on this, I could however I would only be repeating the techniques I learned from rmxpfans post on this found here:

Is there any way to use the kaduki fighters?

 

I'm not 100% familiar with Kaduki Battlers (sad, I know >.<) but from what I know about them and based on what I know about Tankentai for Ace, my initial response is "no". Why? Tankentai is a very tricky program to modify and is nearly impossible for the non-Japanese speaker. Even if it was in English I still don't think it would be that easy. There is a reason this battle system has a "bad rap" with the "lords of scripting" and I don't blame them for acknowledging its confusing structure (considering I had a little taste of it when trying to break into Tankentai myself).

 

I would consider looking into this if the script was in English, however, in the state that it is in, I don't have the time to commit to finding ways of adding on to Tankentai in that manner. Still trying to figure out how to simply ADD guns and not replace something at the moment.

 

I wouldn't give up hope though...there is still a chance someone may pop out of the blue with a fully translated version of the script or perhaps Enu himself will re-release the script as updated and improved (if he already has, someone please tell me lol).

I really want to help you, but I need to know the full nature of your problem. I'm having a hard time diagnosing the issue based on what I've read so far. It looks like either your version of Tankentai or VX ACE is a little buggy and may need to be re-installed but I'd rather believe there is a technical issue that can be solved first before I let this one slip by.

 

What is it you are trying to accomplish?

 

What is happening instead?

 

Do you have Enu's Tankentai or KrayZ's "translated" version of Enu's Tankentai?

 

Is it rmxpfan's guide that is confusing or my last post?

 

Don't worry Cecillia! We will get to the bottom of this!

 

Your friendly neighborhood,
