Mouse Friendly Equipment Screen
Author: RPGManiac3030
Version: 1.0
Type: Custom Menu
Key Term: Custom Menu

Introduction

This is a small edit of Scene_Equip that basically makes it more compatible with a mouse script.

If you're not using a mouse script in your game, this script also allows the player to quickly change a piece of equipment in the menu. If you equipped a sword, you can then quickly choose another sword instead of having to choose your already-equipped sword and going through the list again. See the demo to see this in action.

Features

  • Makes the default equipment screen compatible with a mouse script (i.e. Blizzard's mouse controller) so that the equipment list menu doesn't disappear when the mouse isn't selecting a piece of equipment...see the screenshot to see what I'm talking about   :^_^':
  • After equipping a weapon/armor, you can quickly select another piece.

Screenshots

This is before my edit is implemented:

Demo
Note: The demo doesn't make use of a mouse input module. It will work, though

Script
(click to show/hide)

If you use Fyre's custom equipment screen, use this edit:
See instructions on how to install this!
(click to show/hide)


Instructions

If you are using the default equipment menu:
Put the script above main and below any mouse script.

If you are using Fyre's custom equipment menu:
Put the edit below Fyre's script.

If you are using a different custom equipment menu:
Place this below whatever you are using, and edit my script accordingly.
Do not make ANY edits to the frame update or else you will lose the ability to quickly change equipment in the menu.


Compatibility

  • Should be compatible with any mouse script out there, since I only edit Scene_Equip.
  • Edited for the default equipment menu.

Credits and Thanks

Author's notes
If you use this in your game, please credit me Happy
This is technically 2 scripts in 1, since I needed to use the quick equip feature to make the mouse compatibility better.
There were some issues when I tried testing the menu with other characters, all types of equipment, etc. and I fixed what I found. If you find any other errors like that, or any compatibility issues, please post it here!

I added an edit so that it is compatible with Fyre's custom equipment menu, since that's what I'm using in my game anyway Happy

Today at 09:38:04 PM Blizzard: It's one of those days. It needs to be murdered to death until it dies.
Today at 07:12:56 PM R5GAMER: RMX-OS Without Connection Menu 
Today at 07:05:58 PM R5GAMER: I changed the title to be more clear ..
Today at 07:02:41 PM R5GAMER: It's just the title you know what I mean exactly Sad Be read after the subject :/
Today at 06:59:51 PM KK20: Then what do you call this? VB -> RMXP
Today at 05:28:28 PM R5GAMER: Héhéhé! I managed to find half of my two requests .. ^^ I'll just need your help to all that live display like chat lol and to avoid the Connection menu Happy
Today at 03:58:31 PM R5GAMER: I never asked to help me in vb ...
Today at 03:00:26 PM Praelium: I think I could texture the can, yes. @Blizzard: I have sucked all free stuff from the asset store, but as my story takes shape, the things I need become very specific.
Today at 02:19:12 PM Blizzard: I find viners annoying. When I commit to watching a video, it better be worth my time. Spewing some shit in 5 seconds that's supposed to be funny is just plain stupid. Sure, I have seen a few funny ones (like the one I posted before), but they are rare. They are worse than Internet memes.
Today at 01:27:34 PM ArcaneAlchemy: Now I can waste 7 seconds of people's time instead of 2 minutes with Viners! Thanks Blizzard :D .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wdSpcsKqMc
