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 10:59:20 AM Zexion: oh god
Today at 10:52:03 AM Sgt. Tuggernuts: Just got done edging for like, a few hours.
Today at 10:12:04 AM MetalZelda: "delete system32, that should fix it" -> Yeah thank you my PC is 120 times more faster !!! <3
Today at 08:25:07 AM Zexion: I have windows 8.1 and it hasn't happened to me o.o Maybe you guys are using the same (broken) version of rmxp, o.o
Today at 08:23:47 AM Zexion: KK20 has windows 7 Tongue
Today at 08:04:06 AM WhiteRose: Compatibility mode unfortunately didn't do anything to fix it, so I wonder if it's just a Windows 8.1 issue.
Today at 08:03:03 AM WhiteRose: What OS are you running? I wonder if it has something to do with being on Windows 8.1. My last laptop was on Windows 7 and never had any issues, but the first time I tried to run an RMXP game on this computer, I had the button issues.
Today at 08:02:19 AM WhiteRose: @KK20: I've been having the exact same problem! I thought it was something messed up with a controller or something on my end, but couldn't figure it out!
Today at 07:26:49 AM Zexion: delete system32, that should fix it
Today at 07:06:05 AM KK20: Anyone know a definite solution to prevent a directional input from constantly being pressed in RMXP? Google didn't help much and a lot of the solutions were absurd. I can even unplug the keyboard and it will still occur. Restarting the computer temporarily fixes it. What I find weird is that I never experienced this with my laptop.
