I am releasing the Map Editor to the public. It comes with a watermarked version of the tileset. People can make maps and submit them for review to be included in the game by sending them to [email protected]
. Here is the link:http://www.mediafire.com/?uhwiug70eh9ybb2Mapping GuidelinesDimensions
: from a minimum of 12x12 to a maximum of 24x24. Maps will be assigned to different types of matches based on their size.Edges
: edges do not need to be straight lines. Maps may have holes and irregular borders.Connection
: make a single connected movement area in order to avoid characters to be placed in unreachable positions.Height gap
: consider that almost every character is able to jump over a gap of 3, values of 4-5 make a selection for the most agile characters, 6+ should be considered a barrier that cannot be passed.Objects
: objects become transparent when they hide characters and maps can rotate, however try to limit the use of large objects in order not to make too much cluttered maps and leave some open spaces for the battle.Videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mv5iajk7PYsOriginal post
Hartacon is an online RPG game developed with RPG Maker XP that allows people to challenge each other in multiplayer battles.
Each player can create one or more parties each with a given amount of Upgrade Points (UPs). Adding characters to a party and buying equipments consumes the party's UPs. UPs can be gained by playing online battles.
Characters gain Growth Points (GPs) when they level up. GPs can be used to buy skills and increase stats.DemoDemo

I implemented almost every bit of the game from scratch.
I want to thank the people behind the Netplay project and Blizzard for his RMX-OS from which I have learned a lot, but I'm coding my own classes for everything.
I'm using Selwyn's Resolution Script.
The animation system for the battlers is provided by DerVVulfman.
