9. Summary



1. Introduction

Are you reading this to learn how to script? Then this is NOT for you. If you want to understand this e-book fully, you need basic scripting knowledge. You can read this, of course, but you'll end up wasting your time by not understanding even half of it.
Instead, this e-book will teach you how to become a better scripter. There are far too many scripters who know just a few basics and in the best case they can make a CMS. I will teach you how to handle data, how to make windows look nice and handle them efficiently, how to avoid lag, how to hunt down bugs and how to not be an idiot when scripting. At the end of each chapter there is a little summary, also teaching you how to choose between RAM and CPU specific for that chapter.
Note that I will explain you several things, but these are only the basics. You can't become a better scripter just by reading this e-book, it will only give you a head start in becoming a better scripter. You simply can't become a better scripter without practical experience.


2. Compatibility

This chapter will show you how to make your scripts work with scripts of other scripters more conveniently. If you don't make your scripts compatible, most won't be used. If a user has three cool scripts from three other scripters that work together just fine and yours just won't fit in, he will kick yours most likely and keep using the other three. Another reason for compatibility is to save your time and effort. If your script doesn't work with another one, you will need time to merge it with the other ones for that user.
If your script can be configured and/or has options, make a working precondition and turn off all critical options that need to be first set up correctly by users. It's always a good idea to make your script work Plug 'n' Play as most people don't bother reading instructions.


3. Data Processing and Storage

In this chapter you will learn how to handle data and data processing. In other words, this chapter IS RAM or CPU. You will learn how you can decrease the number of coded lines.


4. Windows

No, it's not the operating system. This chapter will teach you how to handle windows, since they are actually consisting out of several sprites and sprites are the ones that can cause the most lag, especially if they are large.


5. Lag-weg

This chapter will teach you about the worst archenemy of every programmer and scripter: Lag. Lag-weg literally means Lag-away as weg means away in German.


6. Wannabe-Cool Scripting

You are a scripter/programmer, but before all, you are a human being like everybody else. There just are people in the world who seem to believe they would be better than other for either no real or some really idiotic reason. You won't come over as cool if you're being an idiot and rude to people. In this chapter we will work on your relations to the world around you, since it doesn't evolve around you: You evolve around it.


7. Hints and Tricks

This chapter will show you some interesting ideas how to make your scripts work faster, be more compatible, be shorter and on top of that have a cool and professional looking code. Most probably you will enjoy this chapter most as it teaches you actually something to script and doesn't teach you the theory behind all of it too much. This chapter also includes a lot of practical experience.

9. Summary

Don't compare yourself with other scripters. You might lose your motivation by thinking "I will never get as good as him..." On the other hand you could also DO compare yourself with other scripters. You might be the type of person who says "I want to do better. I can do better. I will do better." instead. It's up to you. None of the good and known scripters today was just born with his skills. He has earned them through work and experience. This e-book is a part of my knowledge as a gift to all of you. It's not only what I have learned from scripting in RGSS, it's also what I have learned from programming in general, from what I have been taught in college and from life itself. Every scripter is unique and his experience and skills are incomparable with the experience and skills of any other scripter. One day you will just realize "Hey, I became better than that other guy..."
The RPG Maker XP help file is always a big help when you get into a dilemma asking yourself "Can I do that?" or "Does that class support that?" or... That's why I have included an enhanced English help file with an extra chapter by an unknown author and the Scripts.rxdata with English commented code, improved iteration coding, recoded to avoid the built-in RGSS bug with conditioning and overworked code to shorten the and improve the code. Many of you might not have a legal copy of RPG Maker XP and therefore not the English files. But this does not mean that I encourage illegal copies! I only give support regardless of the fact that your copy is legal or not! If you like the RMXP editor and engine, buy it! Reading through the help file once completely will help you a lot. You will find many useful methods that can give you results, instead of using your own code for that. I also included a copy of the RGSS102E.dll
By reading this e-book I hope right now you got the itches to make something more than just a CMS. And even if it's a CMS, I hope its moving windows that move from behind a window to the side and then back over the other window will look cool, since they don't lag at all.

It's something with a version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. It just won't open some files. I've seen that problem on various PCs, even though they had the same version of the reader as I did. But I was never able to figure out what the problem is. I guess you specifically have to satisfy yourself with the .doc version. =/

*Gasp* Blizz I've kept a copy of this book every sense i started to learn to script and it has been a great help even though I only understood about half of it at any one time (alias was by far the most confusing thing in there)
today I read it again an discovered something, I can understand just about every concept you talk about now! I might not under stand the more detailed descriptions of the inner-workings of the CPU andthe exact difference between hash and array is still a bit confusing too, but everything else is clear!

so I must extend my gratitude for providing me with a tool as wonderful as this, and I can say with pride that I can consider myself a intermediate scripter thanks to your help! :P Thanks Blizz!
I no longer keep up with posts in the forum very well. If you have a question or comment, about my work, or in general I welcome PM's. if you make a post in one of my threads and I don't reply with in a day or two feel free to PM me and point it out to me.
