  1. Thank you very much for your kind words. I miss those days as well, truly a golden age of RPG's. I understand your dislike of front view battle systems. It's like marmite, you either love it or hate it. If you could bypass the annoyance of the front view and find the time to play the game, (If you haven't already) I would be very grateful. Anymore feedback from that would also be great, The demo is about 5-10 hours long depending on playstyle and side-quest/dungeons.
  2. INTRODUCTION Hello! I'm Declan, the creator of Perpetual Chains. Like many people here, I grew up on the RPG games of the 90's/00's. It probably became a contributing factor to the career I landed in. I became an actor, touring all over Europe and eventually doing commercial voiceover. During that time I meddled in RPG Maker and had written this story while on the road. Eventually I realised I could bring the story to life. Using online auditioning pages such as BTVA and CCC I got a handful of capable people wanting to train in voiceover to voice my characters. In short, I give them experience and mentoring and in return they let me use their voice. Before I knew it, this little labour of love became bigger and bigger, and I've been told to share with people what I've got. Perpetual Chains follows all the things I enjoyed about RPG games in my childhood such as compelling storytelling, emotionally deep characters and addictive battle systems. As you probably can see, the mapping and main menu isn't unique as I am a bit of a novice as a designer and programmer. However I feel the work of my voice actors and the music kindly donated to the project really brings the story to life. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. The main thing I want to find out is if it is actually something people want to play and learn more about the story and world. If successful I have the capability in making a complete version and hiring people to do the things I cannot. So if you want to get involved feel free to let me know. I look forward to hearing from you all... YOUTUBE PAGE LINK WITH VIDEOS OF GAMEPLAY. CREDITS ALSO IN A YOUTUBE VIDEO. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj7VA8vpFXf-dFoFxl4xTzQ/videos DOWNLOAD LINK https://uploadfiles.io/xymh6jyo SYNOPSIS The world is at peace, thanks to the teachings of Neras, a religious queendom in the centre of the Ecclesian continent. Neras is both feared and respected to the furthest reaches of the world. They preach the story of ‘Alpha, The God of Light’, and ‘Omega, The Beast of Darkness’. The teachings tell of the battle between the two sides and warned that a descendant of Omega would be born and lead the world to destruction. Only the sacrifice of their Goddess and the penance of the people would bring the world back to salvation. This cycle would repeat itself again and again for eternity. The story follows Cyrus, a trainee solider from the distant kingdom of Espova who bares the tragic fate of being the next descendant of Omega. It also follows Aria, Princess of Neras and next in line to the role of Goddess. Through a stroke of fate, their destinies become entwined as they journey the continent of Ecclesia to find the meaning behind the prophecy. CHARACTERS Cyrus Breeze – An orphan from a village in the kingdom of Espova. He has been trained from a young age to become a soldier, as is common place for the kingdom. It is also the tradition for the orphan to take the surname of the place where they were raised. A polite and likeable person, he found himself having a happy and carefree upbringing surrounded by friends. Until one day the mark on his arm starts to glow and the power of Omega is born within him. Cursed and feared, he runs from the world and those who would wish him destroyed. He seeks to find the meaning behind the curse. Aria Vita Lumen – Princess of Neras, Aria was born with great privilege and responsibility. However to many she is seen as the antithesis of royalty. Crude and impolite, she rejects the role she has been given. This lead to her mother sending her to the abbey to tutor Aria in the ways of nobility. Though on her return it proved somewhat ineffective. With her mother busy ruling the faith and having no other relatives, she feels there’s something missing from her life. One day, she hears a rumour that a member of her family might actually be alive so she seeks to leave her responsibilities and find something more fulfilling. Moulder Clay – An ex-mercenary and hero of Espova. Back during ‘The Gaia Wars’ he hoped to line his pockets. In the end, convinced by Troy, a soldier from Espova, Moulder helps his new ally in turning the tides of the war and freeing the kingdom. Exhausted from battle Moulder is convinced by Troy to look after the latter's home of Breeze Village. During the war he finds a boy on the battlefield in the arms of its dying mother and seeing the destruction that he was partly responsible for, he opens an orphanage and trains the children to become soldiers so they could make a life for themselves. Since the war, he refuses to use his sword and instead fights with his fists. Richard Breeze – A fellow orphan from the kingdom of Espova, Richard and Cyrus were best friends from childhood. Young and motivated they make a pact that they would see the world together. In many ways his focused and serious approach is the opposite Cyrus’ more relaxed personality. However deep down he bears a sadness which stems from watching the murder of his parents during ‘The Gaia Wars’ when he was only three years old. Richard doesn’t understand his emotions about this trauma and chooses to suppress them. Freya Blythe – Daughter of Troy, the hero of Espova. Her father saved the kingdom during ‘The Gaia Wars’. With her mother dying from childbirth her father struggles to show Freya affection and therefore sends her to the orphanage in Breeze Village to be brought up by his friend Moulder. Beautiful and intelligent, she becomes close to the orphans, particularly Cyrus and Richard. The three of them became inseparable and Freya sees the two as her family. Upon being summoned back to the castle she focuses on becoming a mage in order to put distance between herself and her father. Tiberius Germana – A travelling lothario from Trysus. Son of Edgar, the now deceased general of the kingdom. Since Trysus lost ‘The Gaia Wars’ they was severely punished by Neras and the royal family were executed. It was up to the Germana family to lead the kingdom through the troubled times. While his brother leads with dignity, Tiberius ran from his responsibility to experience the thrills of the world. Now short of money, he gets a stroke of good fortune. He bumps into Cyrus and hopes bringing a capable warrior to his brother will let him be welcome back with open arms. Lazarus Octavia – A trainee knight from Espova. The family of Octavia has been close to the royalty of Neras for centuries. As Aria and Lazarus are the same age they were put together so they would be become friends. In actual fact, with Aria being more outgoing, Lazarus quickly becomes overwhelmed by her personality and becomes much more timid and shy. Even though they were supposed to be friends, Aria treats him more like a slave, jokingly threatening to have him executed if he doesn’t do what she says. Over the years he’s effectively become a wimp and although a skilled warrior, is pushed into becoming a knight when he would rather stay at home. Despite all this, he cares for Aria and hates seeing her alone. Roland Cestus – A leading knight of Neras. He continues the family line in being a protector of the goddess. As one of the few people Queen Cecilia can trust he spends a lot of time with Princess Aria hoping to raise her not only to become a noble queen but to have her own mind. A relaxed and pleasant man, many of the nobles blame him for the way the princess has become. Due to pressure from his enemies in Neras he IS ordered to go on a holy journey known as 'Crusade' away from the capital. Before he goes, he hopes to protect Aria as much as possible from those who would wish to control her.

  5. Thank you so much for your help. Using the lazy fix you created, I've tested on both a new project and my main and it has come. The only issue I have now is the position on the menu. I changed it from Shards to Runes. Where In the main menu did I need to add the first bit of script you added? Is there any way to edit where Runes appears on the menu? Say in-between equipment and Status.
  6. I think it requires the other scripts I have to make it on a new project which are a lot. From what I'm aware they shouldn't clash with Galv's script. So I'll add a copy of the original Yanfly's Menu Script. If you could get the Magic Shards to work with the original Yanfly Menu script on a new project and let me know what you needed to add I should be able to finish it from there.

  7. My have put this in the wrong category. Can someone move this to script support please?

    Yanfly Ace Menu Script Help (Missing MP Bar)

    You PhoenixSoul are a legend!!! At my first attempt I shuffled my scripts around and it didn't really have any affect. I looked around and found someone else had similar problems so they downloaded a more up to date version of the Yanfly menu so I downloaded the latest version which still didn't seem to work. In the end I made a new project with the core script and the menu script which still didn't seem to work. So I did the only thing I could do and that was go back to your advice swapped the position of the menu script, putting it above the core script and EUREKA!!! Something so simple in the end. Thank you very much for your help.
  9. Hello I'm in desperate need of some assistance in regards to Yanfly's menu script. You see, when I open the main menu the MP bar isn't there. I've added an image to show what this looks like. To give you some more information, I use Yanfly's core script and menu script but don't use his battle script, instead I use MOG's Battle HUD EX. I think that might be the issue I'm having but I'm not confident enough to be sure. As well I've turned off the TP bar on the main menu. When I tested it with the TP bar on it showed the HP, MP and TP as normal except for one character where it seems to all be crushed together. Ideally I would like just the HP and MP menu on show. I somehow feel this could be an easy fix, but there's something obvious I'm missing. I'll also add a copy of the menu script so people can see where I'm going wrong. I would be eternally grateful for any assistance anyone can give. Regards Declan Yanfly Menu Script.docx
