It's just an idea I had... Of course it wouldn't be exactly like the original--that's not the point. I would use the 8-directional option but I'm thinking I might run into a few snags, so that's why I'm posting this. The main issue I'm be concerned about is whether it's possible to add elemental attributes to swords using ZQ (i.e. certain enemies would only be weak against certain swords and not others), and also whether it would be possible to change swords at will during the course of gameplay similar to the way you would with other items. I think I could probably manage the rest. If it's not possible, does anyone have any suggestions for an action RPG creation tool which might allow me to do this? I'm pretty sure RPG Maker is only turn-based, so that's a no-go. Thanks in advance!
