Hey, I thought I'd let you guys get the first look at the brand new http://xasabs.com/ site - there's still a hell of a lot to do but I'm pleased with the direction it's going in so far.



My aim is to organise the site better from the ground up so newcomers will find the whole experience easy and user-friendly.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.

Thank you guys.

^ lookin' PRO-FESH! +

I usually type "xasabs" in the browser to get to your site.
Just earlier I typed "xasabs.com" and saw a blank template and got all excited.
So you of had to of just updated this right? Or am I going crazy :~P

Yes, I'm X-cited about the new site and XAS4 for XP, we got a few projects waiting to upgrade ^,^

Let me know if there's anything I can help with.

(started to tinker with VX ACE, it's no XP but I like the character generator +)

Haha, yeah Gameface I just updated it. I was sick of paying wordpress.com money for access to CSS so I decided to buy a domain and go legit. I'm using a free hosting solution atm, I'll see how that works out in the long run - but all in all it worked out cheaper than re-newing for access to the CSS alone which is kinda crazy since I have WAY more freedom over the way the site looks and behaves now.

Since I'm building from the bottom up I'm also constantly checking how the site looks on mobile devices because more and more people are accessing the site that way (even though you obviously need a PC to use XAS and RPG Maker).

"Lookin' PRO_FESH!" haha, I'll have to see if I can include that somewhere Wink

I know we've been talking about a podcast for years but it'd be cool to do one for when XAS 4 comes out - perhaps a new podcast for each release where we break down the new features and talk about how we'd put them to good use. What'd you think?

@NuKa_BuBble - Thank you man, I appreciate it. The site is going to be getting bigger, so for the first time I'm going to be opening it up to people in the community because it's just not a one man job any more (especially not for one man who is a busy bee). So keep your eye out, I'll be asking for applications soon, I hope to see your name among them.

Hello Calvin624 !

Your new website have a pretty good looking design!
What i suggest you for the organization, is to make things in forms of topics,
that will be better especially when people asks the sames problems again and again.
They could find more easily theirs answers in the specifics topics.
Also topics will be useful if the users want to post theirs owns games made with XAS
and the progress made on it.
I really think Topics form will be the 'Key' to keep a good organization.
In all case Calvin624, Keep up the good work! Smile

Hey Baffou, the new site will have forums - they'll replace the current XAS Manuals and the message boards for the most part.

That means people will be forced to 'search' for their answer rather than being lazy and asking for it outright - although questions that are asked but not covered will be in-cooperated into the main post.

Hopefully this'll make it easier for the community as a whole.

@Calvin624 - I'll see for your applications request. This year I'm really busy at school so maybe I won't have the time to do it. I'm at my last year before the cegep and I'm back at home late. Actually, I have less than 3 hours before I go to bed. And with that I have a job so the weekend I'm still busy. lol!
But, for sure, I'm going to check out your requests and see if I find the time to do them... Oh and a little thing I wanted to ask, which programmations languages your applications will need?

@NuKa_BuBble - Concentrate on your school work - I wouldn't want to distract you from that. The roles would be more or less moderators for the forum/site.

I'm only looking to include people that have been part of the community for a while or come highly recommended by someone who has.

@Baffou - Thanks man, just doing my best Smile

hey I like the latest touches mate +

seeing the slide about accessing XAS content on the go...

did you finish the android app!?

I would be happy to install/test that out for ya

I'm currently being pressured to make an android app/game myself.
I've tried a few "easy-online-app-makers" but now I'm diving into Eclipse IDE and Android SDK.

The free platform I was using, Andromo, started charging - it was ridiculous. I was a little pissed off since they used the community as beta-testers (with no sign they would end up charging for the service).

Yeah using Eclipse and Android SDK is the best way to go - I started but I think I need to buy a few books and read up on it a little more. For now a fully accessed mobile site should suffice Smile

Years ago I started building my first arcade cabinet, once it was completed I began learning on how to make my own game for it. I was just a forum lurker at the time when I discovered RPG Maker XP.
I really liked how I could make an RPG but I was most impressed when I discovered the Action Battle Systems (ABS). I tried a few of them out, all took some learning to do, but when I discovered Xiderowg's Action System (XAS) I was blown away with the capabilities and how smooth the game play was compared to the other systems, the only down side was that it wasn't easy to understand and that it was in Portuguese. In search of XAS support, there wasn't any in English, not until Calvin624 started XAS tutorials. Covering many versions of XAS, Calvin624 has translated, reverse-engineered and has broken down difficult procedures into simple steps so that anyone can make powerful 2D games using RPG Maker XP and my favorite ABS, XAS +

That's fantastic man, thank you - 171 words though - need to lose about 130 of them lol - I can jumble something together, how about:

In search of support for this great ABS I stumbled upon XAS tutorials where I discovered Calvin624 had translated, reverse-engineered and broken down difficult procedures into simple steps so that anyone could make powerful 2D games using RPG Maker XP and my favorite ABS.

Happy with that? You can word it your own way of course, that's kinda the whole point haha :-)

Uh, lol idk about any words, when it comes to that kinda stuff i get all lost :p

And now working on my own ABS (kinda slowly) i dropped support for XAS, NOT for my scripts though. Unless, un-like most of them, mog hunter didnt include it into the newest XAS release.

Sight is looking good. Smile

@Wiggles - Fantastic, let me know if you want any tutorials written up - Moghunter suggested I should start doing stuff for other battle systems as well as XAS. I'll see how I get on with this site first though haha

If anyone wants to fact check proof read any of the new site's content I'd really appreciate it.

If something doesn't make sense to you or is worded strangely just give me a shout and I'll sort it out Smile
