Sorry, I will no longer be scripting for RMXP. I may or may not give support for my scripts. I don't have the will to script in RGSS anymore.

To be honest, I don't see the usefulness in this. You can already change their graphic, its an event command on Page 3. And I don't understand how to even use it.

So, this could, for example, set events that look just like your current party members or something like that? I suppose there could be times where it would be useful.

This is useful, but not one I'd use myself (as it's easy to event). If you're playing a game that the player will choose which characters are with you and what you look like in the beginning, this would be an awesome script. If you add support for Blizz's visual equipment, everyone would love you for this.

There's already an event command for that. Of course, if this is compatible with BABS, then it's definitely a useful script, as the event method doesn't work.

He means if you've made several events that use the main character's graphics (if you want to have the character use poses, you have to do it this way, at least when blizz was still making blizzABS), you'd need to manually go through and change tons of event commands. It'll speed things up for a lot of people. One thing that'd REALLY help though is if you could give us a script call to change the event's graphics to currentGraphic_pose (then the frame via a 2D array). That way every pose could be based on the graphic in the database, rather than doing it manually. Trust me, Rose, it's a useful script.

Oooh, alright; I get it now. That is indeed useful. Your explanation helped considerably; he was a little vague in his description.

Ya, it was a bit vague, but I knew what he meant when he said decide to change the main character's graphic halfway through the game, as I already had to do that. It took HOURS.

If you did it that way, it'd still work. I just use LOTS of poses, and most have transition frames from any given pose in my games, so to save on file-space, I group them into charsets with different poses in each frame. But it'd still be really useful if you just made it so I could change the graphic based on the event's current graphic (which was based on the character's graphic)
