turn-based:

I move one guy, then the enemy, then me, then the enemy...

real-time:

all happens at the same time, I and PC act together...

I heard you can pause it, though.

Com Raven

What's so special about this pausing thing? Can't you do it in most games during a fight?

Com Raven

well, the first game to have used it was Bioware's Baldur's Gate...

since then, most isometric rpgs use it...

Turn-based combat is just like the fighting system for final fantasy, you just take turns at throwing your attacks or magic.

not really....

FF X has turn-based combat, while previous FF games had a time-based system...

Turn based combat explained-

When in battle (for example) the turn based system allows the player to perform 1 sequence or action. e.g. swaping players (FFx). The player then must wait while the computer retaliates to the players move. For example:

Player- cast freeze spell
*spell*
WAIT PERIOD - Computer fires back/heals/dodges spell
Player- retreats
*runs away*
WAIT PERIOD - Player recieves X amount of damage for leaving a battle.


I hope this is correct, and is the easiest example i can think of.

well, every board game is turn-based...

Pausing will be fun and will make for some nifty screenshots.

Now add dismemberment!!!

Bio never had that in their games, but in BG series, a critical, lethal blow left the enemy in a bloody mess....

Com Raven

Com Raven

You should go over to Yoda's swamp there are some great people over there, and almost all of them play JKII.

There are a couple of D3 videos and the previews are everywhere. It also looks like a Doom game that I might actually enjoy for once.

Doom 3 doesn't look all that bad, could be better then Unreal 2...we'll see...

I am so glad that we have A Real Time fights, I cant stand turn based as its like your stopped in time and its not as real.

Com Raven

This is what I don't understand. In real-time you, the character is fighting by himself, not by your controls. Please explain better.

Com Raven

welcome ill :)

in real-time you give the character and order, just like in WC 3 or AoM, and he carries it out immediately...

in turn-based, it's like an old board game, where you act, then enemy, then you....
