The Action RPG Framework is a library that provides functions specific to action RPGs. It handles things like:
  • Combat and dealing damage
  • Health, mana, money, and experience
  • Graphical effects and sound effects
  • Enemy AI
  • Managing passive, temporary, or periodic effects
  • On-screen displays (health meter, inventory, etc.)
  • Special abilities with mana costs and cooldowns
  • Picking up items and equipping them
  • Targeting enemies
  • Projectiles
  • Sound effects and music
  • Saving and loading
  • Character creation and selection
  • Quests
  • Enabling/Disabling PvP
  • Forming parties and inviting players
  • On-screen display of party members
  • Medals
  • Banking
The library provides the underlying features you need to create an action RPG. It also comes with a sample game that shows how to implement some basic features.

It's hard to determine where to draw the line between the library and a game that uses the library. For example, the framework only defines the player's health and mana stats. There are no stats like strength or agility - there's no way for the framework to know what stats you'll need. All additional stats must be defined in the project that uses the framework.

I had a question as to why you used tmp for your "wander_distance" bit of code. Is it just because you didn't want it cluttering up save files or is there some bonus to this i'm missing?

For those of you that are having trouble including the required libraries, I've repackaged it all for you. Just extract it and you're ready to go. Keep in mind that I recommend you use the download button on the hub so that all of the libraries can automatically receive updates if Forum_account releases any.

I get these errors/warnings when trying to compile. I'm fairly new to byond so any suggestions?

What's the license for the music and stuff in this? It's very good. :)

Ah I see. It's all good man I can come up with something myself to handle AOE graphical effects and the other things listed. I was just wondering about it that is all. I am quite happy with everything provided already and really think its very nice to have something like this to work from. I am using it as base of a RPG I am making.
