[XP] Journal
« on: July 07, 2010, 03:26:47 AM »
Journal

I wrote this script after seeing a request here on CP for something similar.

information about people they have encountered and places they have visited.
Can also log weapons, armors, and items.

Features

  • Easy to use/configure
  • Will log people, places, weapons, armors, and items seperately
  • Configurable what type of entries you would like to log
  • Configurable layout
  • Option to use pictures
  • Fully compatible "stats" you want the system to display.

Demo

Author's Notes

This is awesome! Lvl up. :-*
Edit: Is it possible to modify some values to make it to where you can have two journals? Since I have basic RGSS know how i attempted it my self,...., but failed and ended up with this error when i tryed to start my game.
something like this.
Quote
Error on line 175 in script "Scene_Journal" (thats what i named it in the editor) Stack level too deep.
what i did was dupe the script rename it to Scene_Journal2 in the page list. then I changed those things that add info right after the config ends by adding a 2 to the end of the thingys. then i scrolled down to where it said class Scene_Journal and changed it to this Scene_Journal2 any help?
It all worked fine before i duped the script. when i deleted the dupe, it was all fine.

Copying the script wont do you much good. I'm not positive exactly what your trying to do, but try just renaming the scripts and config differently and calling them as such. For example instead of the Journal module, have a Journal_1 and Journal_2 module, and the same with the scenes. Just make sure that each scene calls from the appropriate Journal, etc, etc. You may also need to make some edits to have different variables that keep track of what is unlocked for each Journal. Hope that was helpful!

Is there any way to make it so that the journal shows the actors names as dictated by the database? I ask this because I make it so the player can name the main character what they want and I want the journal to change accordingly.

Don't got my game in front of me right now, but I think if you use...
Code: [Select]
$data_actors[ACTOR_ID].name...it will show the name of the actor with that ID.

Thanks, that worked. One more question. What if I want to change the picture I use for a certain actor during the game. Is there any way to do that???

Simplest way I can think of off-hand without changing the method would be to set a switch to it.
Here's an example, using Switch #10. In the part where you configure the bitmap of char with ID...
Code: [Select]
when 1 then $game_switches[10] ? 'BITMAP SWITCH ON' : 'BITMAP SWITCH OFF'
Try that. Let me know if it works.

Would it be possible to put in an option for items? Not like an inventory list, just important artifacts.

Yeah that wouldn't be hard. I'll make you a mod sometime here when I get a chance. If I forget, just PM me or bump for update.

* UPDATES *

Version is now 2.0
 - Totally overworked code for better performance and overview
 - Added options to log weapons, armors, and items
 - Add ability to choose what options (ie. Places, People, Items, etc.) to use in your journal
 - Basic configurables for the window look/layout.
 - Feature to Auto-Unlock weapons, armors, and items as the player aquires them if desired.
 - Names will be defined by the database now in a list.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions. I think I added them all... :P

I wonder if you can added to the script a section for write what is hapenning in the game
Ex: after an encounter with a strange man, this appears in the section.                             
                                                 
                                                 (Title) "The strange Man"
 (What happened)"We found a strange man who told us we were at the castle, I wonder who will be
                                                but we dont have time to follow and ask"

Then after a while it reappears the same strange man, after talking with him, and at the same section title("The strange Man") appears:

                                                 (Title) "The strange Man",
 (What happened)"We found a strange man who told us we were at the castle, I wonder who will be
                                                but we dont have time to follow and ask.
                         The same strange man came back to help us, I dont understand, ┬┐why he help us?"

Something like that, and space for many titles

That would not be a very hard script to write, but it would probably be easier to adapt this.
