How can I make random encounters?

Hi, I'm a newbie and would like to know how to create random encounters for a rpg-style game? For example, in Pokemon, when you enter the grass and walk on it, do random encounters come out, or in final fantasy, do you walk through a field and come out a random fight, or is it impossible to do with gamecreator? (google translator :p )


Unity version:
Game Creator version:

Hey Luis, I build an Asset for Game Creator called Action Pack 1 for Game Creator.


This pack has 3 x Randomisers where you can trigger other Actions at Random. They can happen with a probability factor, or they can only happen once and then not again.

This could easily be used for what you want.

Or, you could use the Random Variable and trigger an Action that way.

Hope this helps.

Ok thanks for your reply i'll check your asset


Yup, Paul's package can help you with that. Just bear in mind that Game Creator doesn't have a rpg-like combat system (yet), so one thing is coding the random encounter, the other one is making the whole battle.
