RPG Developer Bakin Ver. 1.3 Update Summary

- Increase in Number of Party/Enemy Members
The maximum number of members has been doubled to "8" in response to requests for a larger number of members to form a party. The number of enemies appearing in a battle has also been increased to "8". Regarding the area where the number of enemies is specified in the Map Settings and Event Panel, it is now possible to specify up to 8 enemies.

- Battle Related
Added functions such as "attack range" and "member rearrangement" that can introduce concepts such as "front/back row" into battles. It is now possible to add attack range to weapons so that attacks cannot reach the back row, and to create commands to send "sleeping" or "combat disabled" members to the back of the party.

- 2D Style Battle Related
Added a function that is useful for creating so-called front view 2D battles with a background of 2D image placed on a billboard. For example, the "Orthographic Projection" option added to the Camera Tool makes it easier to use the camera for creating 2D games, as the size and visibility of the projected object is no longer affected by its distance from the camera.

- Enhancement Items
Combine database/event/layout to create enhancement items like "Sword +1" or have them dropped by enemies.

- Mini Map with Auto Mapping
Mini map display function, including auto-mapping function, has been added.  Various settings can be made in the Layout Tool, Game Definition, and Event Editor.

- Expanded Picture Book Features
New features have been implemented to enhance the monster, item, and skill picture books. It is also possible to filter by tags specified in the Database.

- Dungeon RPG Sample Game
A simple dungeon RPG sample game has been added to the Game Gallery. It includes elements such as the dropping of enhanced items using item customization events, 2D-style battles, and the influence of attack range on battles. Please use this as an example of how to use the main functions of Ver. 1.3 for your game creation.

In addition, many other features and improvements have been added, including the ability to specify the order in which Free Layout for Events is displayed and improvements to the operation of the Layout Tool. Please take this opportunity to try creating your own game with "RPG Developer Bakin".
