Thank you,
I understand what you say, it motivates me to continue.

So I have news.
I added a second background with a 'ZOrder' on the characters.
Map change, transition between the map, and transparency (water + animation).

I had a hard time reading the text because of the low contrast against the background. Other than that it looks good.

I know, I think I'm going to really do a font make instead of taking one that is not suitable.
I look forward to working on the gameplay fighting.

The real problem is the background actually (or better said, the total lack of background).

I'm back.
I redid my project to zero, the code is optimized and easier to modify
You can push the NPC.
I add the menu ring.
It will be possible to have 3 heroes + 9 NPC at the same time on the screen for cities.
I have to finish some details, but I think I can finally started programming enemies :)

Thank you,

I made a new demo.
-add 11 character display
-Start the battle system

I think I have managed to overcome key constraints.
The rest are details, the calculation time is enough

I made a video :

-for the damage, if the damage is greater than 200, they are bigger display

Thank you.
I don't think there will be big update.
There are also many details that I have to adjust and are invisible in the game.
I think working on a magic, then make music or mode 7 , I don't know.
My objective for now is to test the performance and difficulties.

For info I use 97 sprites:
-48 For the characters / enemies / NPC
-18 For the damage
-20 For the ring menu
-3 For the future icon
-8 are used for initialization

31 sprites will be used:
-23 For magic / effect
-8 For the boss (+ 24 sprites of enemies).

Your project is really, really cool, but I think you should reconsider your camera system. Camera systems in which you have to get close to the edge of a given direction to move in that direction are probably the most hated type of camera system among reviewers and speedrunners because you have very little room to see new enemies/obstacles ahead in the direction you're moving. A lot of games almost employ the opposite system where the camera is ahead of the player in the direction the player is moving, rather than behind the player.
