Warning: This FAQ thread only answers the questions for XAS 3.91 [RPG Maker XP]! For any XAS VX/A related questions, check http://xasabs.wordpress.com/.
Q: How do I install XAS?
A: Unzip, open the .rxproj file, and you’re set.
Q: “Failed to load *** data.”
A: Either you didn’t unzip it, or it didn’t unzip completely. Double-Check everything is there. That isn’t even XAS related, but anyway.
Q: How do I create an enemy?
A: Five simple steps. Those are… somewhat useful if you’re going to create a project with XAS. Like me *cough*
- Create an enemy in the Enemies Tab of the Database.
- Create a troop at the exact same position as the enemy in the Troops tab of the Database.
- Create an Event, named <EnemyX> where X = Enemy ID.
- Create one page, set Move Route to Custom, add some ordinary Move Route such as Move at random etc.
- Create a second page, adding the “Self Switch D is ON” option. Now use your brain and the XAS commands to attack your allies.
Q: Why do I get the Error “You forgot to set a ID of Enemy Event”?
A: Probably you’ve forgot to add a Troop in the corresponding tab of the database. Double-Check you inserted the enemy and the troop on the same position – For example, you’d add three new enemies on position 31, 32 and 33, so you’d have to insert each enemy once on the same positions as a troop [31 = 31, 32 = 32, 33 = 33].
Q: How can I add temporary invincibility to my enemy?
A: I’ve got this question a number of times now, so I’ll answer it as well.
- Open the Scripts Tab, search for “XAS” » “BATTLER” and look for the line “SHILED_DIRECTIONS”.
- Add your Enemy ID on the left, insert a blue Arrow => and a bracket . (Copy-Paste if you’re too lazy.)
- Inside the brackets add “2,4,6,8” without quotations – This’ll make the enemy invincible in all directions.
If you’ve done this, you can use the XAS commands shield_enable! and shield_disable! (Important: With the exclamation mark) to add temporary invincibility to your enemy. Have fun.
Q: Above thing doesn’t work.
A: Are you sure you inserted those brackets [ ] instead of ( )? Everything else is pretty fool-proof, so you’ve either did that wrong or you haven’t read everything.
If you did everything and tried anything to save your life, here’s an easier way: Use the script tags vunerable and invunerable (Warning: It’s called vunerable, not vulnerable!)
