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 12:05:37 AM KK20: I can only find things on how to disable it system-wide. 
November 26, 2014, 10:55:00 PM Wecoc: Is possible to disable ClearType on the game's font using Win32API?
November 26, 2014, 09:10:22 PM Blizzard: It takes about 2-3 languages and then every other language becomes "yet another language". That's obviously a good thing.
November 26, 2014, 06:38:10 PM ForeverZer0: Once you learn one language, the rest can be learned much easier, most of them are fundamentally the same. They each have their differences of course, but the basic knowledge of how programming works is pretty much universal, and the knowledge can be applied to any language.
November 26, 2014, 06:20:58 PM Kiwa: Damn! im too lazy to study all these programming languages. I envy you guys who have the determination to keep studying lol. I've really enjoyed Ruby sofar but other than web/rpg maker is ruby even useful? i saw online that its "in demand" but are there exe compilers out there? i took a look at C# code online. it looks familiar but not. get a referb @Ranquil. pretty cheap
November 26, 2014, 01:00:14 PM Ranquil: @Kiwa: Because my computer is old and shitty and its processor is about to die. :D As Xuroth already said, there's a free version of Unity as well. You can use C# or Javascript with it. And yes, C# is easier. It's a pretty easy language now that I've had to study it at school a bit. :D
November 26, 2014, 12:57:19 PM Kiwa: on a funny note.. my buddy came out here to japan a few months ago. he picked up a 3DS and went back to the states. he got the new smash bros for the DS and its regon locked...lol..sucks to be him. lol
November 26, 2014, 12:55:25 PM Kiwa: Thanks @xuroth. ill look into it. I'm still learning Ruby. i really like it but I'm not sure if its so practical. im also taking a look at the java course on Codecademy. but i only got about 15% thru it. cuz i prioritized RUBY and Rails.
November 26, 2014, 11:42:23 AM Blizzard: @mrbane: Please don't shoutvertise topics. Happy New topics appear in the "New posts since last visit" and people will read your topic if they are interested.
November 26, 2014, 09:40:13 AM Xuroth: @Kiwa Unity has a free version as well as the pro. And you can use Javascript and C# (a slightly easier language, I've been told).
