Hey, seems I haven't been around these forums for a while - Blizzard has released various versions of v2 without me noticing! Anyway I now may actually know enough Ruby and (possibly) RGSS to translate the script for VX. I'm not actually using VX (in fact I'm moving away from RPG Maker entirely) but it'll be interesting to see whether I can actually do it
! And in 30 days of trial! Anyway I'll have to try out version 2, so maybe I'll start up RMXP once again. And Axerax, is that bug serious enough that I should wait till Blizzard's fixed it before trying to translate?
Edit: Oh, and by the way Blizzard, what version of Windows are you using in the screenshot on pg25? Looks awesome
The bug Axerax mentioned is only cosmetical.
It's a glitch.
I'm using Windows XP, it's just a skin. xD
I wish you good luck with the translation as Blizz-ABS has 17000 lines of code and comments. xD

Hey, I love your work, and I'm trying out your new update, v2.23. But I can't seem to change the movement controls to the Directional Arrows, like I could back in v1.89. I tried this, like metioned in a reply on the first page of this topic.
UP = "[D_Up]" # move up
LEFT = "[D_Left]" # move left
DOWN = "[D_Down]" # move down
RIGHT = "[D_Right]" # move right
But it doesn't seem to work in the newest installment. When I switched the controls to that, I get this Error:
Script 'Blizz-ABS 2' Line 6378: NoMethodError occurred
undefined method '-' for nil:NilClass
That particular line seems to be the same as the line in that Demo you made, and it work's fine with normal controls. Do you know if something is wrong, or do I need to use different commands to switch the control's to the Arrow Keys? Also is it possible to use Backspace, Enter, Shift, Space Bar, Tab, Caps Lock, Ctrl, or Alt as available button's in a game? Any help is greatly appreciated. Please and thanks.
You should refrain from configuring it manually. Use the configuration application (Blizz-ABS Config.exe) which will generate you a working configuration script. v1.89 didn't have it so you likely don't know about it. It was a boom the first time I released it with v1.95. xD
Also, the way it's configured manually has been changed. You can take a look at the default configuration to see how it's done now.

Hello there Blizzard!
just wanna ask u something,
from all of your ABSs version, which one is the most stable one??
I'm studying and doing some experiments with your ABS, i gotta say it's so COMPLEX system, but one thing to admit, I really, really liked it!!
Keep up the great work, Blizz!
sorry for my bad english,
Usually when a new version comes out (i.e. 1.8, 1.9, 2.0, 2.1, etc.), it's less stable because of the new features added. In the next few versions I usually fix the problems that were caused by the new features. v2.23 is pretty stable. There are only a few issues which need to be fixed, but Blizz-ABS doesn't crash. They are more like internal bugs in the system, not serious system bugs. My advice is that you always get the newest version.
You should see my second example game. I used the ABS in a completely different manner than it was originally intended to. xD Here's the link to the topic again: http://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php?topic=2604.0
