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 01:36:34 AM Zexion: wow that lab was no joke. i just rested my lab coat on my arm for a few seconds and got a rash o.o
Today at 01:31:58 AM Zexion: im usually that one guy with 200+ coins and 4 stars using boo to keep everyone poor
Today at 01:27:33 AM Blizzard: Some discussions gravitate towards Nazis (Godwin's Law), the ones here towards rape. Seems legit. xD
September 16, 2014, 10:01:46 PM Punn: I remember having 8 stars, so everyone kept ganging up on me and getting Boo to steal my stars.. I still won regardless. 
September 16, 2014, 09:17:52 PM R.A.V.S.O: I once passed from 4th to 1st via chance time on Mario Party 3...... on the LAST turn, friendships were severed that day.
September 16, 2014, 09:12:16 PM Punn: Nevermind, I found it. Gonna download and play it after CoD.
September 16, 2014, 09:02:09 PM Punn: @legacyblade where can I find the game? google only gives me the definition. 
September 16, 2014, 09:00:52 PM Punn: Mario Party 1-3 is a real man's sport and how war should be fought on. @legacyblade If you play SMT Devil Survivor, it'll be similar to that. They have 3 different body expressions but each of them have different facial expressions.
September 16, 2014, 08:55:27 PM legacyblade: @Punn (Quintessence is a masterful example of how to use expressions on a static base to create really dynamic cutscenes. I highly suggest playing it)
September 16, 2014, 08:33:52 PM legacyblade: @Zexion, mario party 2 is the way real men wage war. There's no way WOMEN could settle their differences over something so inherently manly :V
