wondering if grid-like movement is possible?

is it possible to have a grid based movement in a game, like perhaps a topdown game but the character moves in a grid-like way, each "step" locks to the grid, like a turn based game etc (does not need to be turnbased though)

I am just asking if anyone would know of some different ways to do this in pacdk if this is at all possible in the first place, I have been away from the pacdk scene for awhile and have fuzzy memory of things in the application (plus I havent reviewd all the updates since I last used it)

thank you for any help you can give me, sorry if this seems like an ignorent question to the capabilitys of the pacdk system

Well... every character movement in pacdk is grip-based. Maybe you still know something about the "walkmap". This is nothing but a grip with a certain resolution.

With the command "stepto" you are able to move your character one grid to a certain direction.

I don't know exactly what you want to do, but I think you want to have something like in Final Fantasy Tactics? A turn based and grip based gameplay?
No doubt.. this is possible (with a lot of work ;))
