How about I transfer the ownership of the first post to someone else?

I would help editing, but it looks like this is a forum I'm not a mod in haha

Good idea though. Cleaning up the post will help future visitors. I plan to keep editinf and adding to the core scripts as well, so that'll be an ongoong project.

so, and sorry if this is a topic that's been dead for a while... if the Editor is rewriting your .ini file with RGSS104E.dll... isn't it doing that from a default source? I'm not sure but I think I found one of those sources in

C:\Windows\SysWOW and again in C:/Program Files (x86)/Enterbrain

Now... I don't know if I really WANT to make the full jump to have all my RMXP projects use the new engine, but... here's my thought. Going in and renaming that RGSS301.dll to RGSS104E or RGSS102E in sysWOW or the Enterbrain Program Files directory,  and THEN create a BASIC implementation, just the scripts you need for this, the one map, and then adding the .rxdata you get from that to Enterbrain's data/system folders.

This way, you have exactly WHAT scripts you need at the onset, and when you click in the editor, and it goes and rewrites your RGSS301 with the one it has from the default source, it is rewriting with what YOU already changed.


I think this would be ideal for people who are ready to just make that big jump over to XPAce.

KK20

Are you talking about when people make a new project in the editor that it already loads up a default XPA project? I mean, I guess you could if you were that big of a die-hard supporter. But XPA is still somewhat experimental. Telling users to potentially corrupt their data files when they just want to try it out...you raise more problems.

I don't see any reason to rename the DLL in registry. Or maybe I'm not understanding your point.

I just took the RGSS301, renamed it to RGSS102E and put it in my project's folder. The exe uses a local DLL if there is one. Otherwise it tries various system directories. This seemed like the simplest and most straightforward solution for a project-by-project basis.

There is an alternative for a solution on a global scale though. You could put a copy of that DLL in the "System" folder in RMXP's installation folder. This is a project template and if you edit that template in any way, every new project will use that edited template when you select "New Project" in RMXP. You can even put together an initial setup with various scripts that you're sure to use for every project (e.g. Tons of Add-ons).

Blizzard, that's EXACTLY what I was going with. I mean, I can still keep the old DLL there as an OLD and an OLD setup with the basic scripts and such for later. but I definitely think I'm ready to jump to XPA globally. Haven't found any tilemap rewrite issues, panoramas and fog are working fine, pictures work well... No problems to report, I just get sick and tired of having to replace each time, so yeah, going to change it in the system directory instead.

Thanks for everything.

Updated the OP. When I get around to making a demo, I'll go back and change it up a bit.

RTH ABS is causing not loading tilesets on the map. The script itself is huge, so I would't be suprised if it was too difficult to fix. :roll:
http://www.gdunlimited.net/scripts/rpg-maker-xp/custom-battle-scripts/rth-abs-2-6 - you must add .zip format to open it.

KK20

It's not a compatibility issue with XPA Tilemap at least. Might have something to do with how z-ordering works in VXA.

Alright, so does that mean it won't be fixed in near future?

Sorry to bother you, but I've got one more issue, this time with Audio Module Rewrite - https://app.box.com/s/qyodwzlcgn3r0lpycldu. I fixed first error by removing one space, but now I get 'string contains null byte' line 992 -> 'if FileTest.exist?(filename + '.mp3' )' and I have no idea how to fix it.

KK20

I'll take a look at these this weekend.

EDIT:
Could you try adding this to the same script I mentioned about Array#to_s?

class String
  alias delete_utf8 delete!
  def delete!(arg)
    if arg == "\0"
      self.encode!("UTF-16be", :invalid=>:replace, :replace=>"\uFFFD").encode!('UTF-8')
      delete_utf8(arg + "\uFFFD")
    else
      delete_utf8(arg)
    end
  end
end

Just curious what the results are.

Nothing has changed from my point of view. I still get the same errors.
Ah, and the first one I didn't mentioned was caused by line super (64,24,512,56) and all I had to do to fix it was deleting space between.

I hope this is it.

Regarding the ABS, I was able to load the first map just fine. You sure you imported the XPA scripts correctly?

Try out this RTH + HUD demo, map won't load after installing Ace scripts. I must've sent you diffrent version... Sorry.
http://www.box.net/shared/76syfcrg2zpv8rmym7g2

KK20

Still loaded.
Here's the script.rxdata I used. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58874459/Scripts-Kise.rxdata
Would be better if you just gave me a demo with XPA already in it so that I can see the problem myself.

Ahh... I thought that Tilemap and Load RTP scripts should always be above the rest. Thank you for taking the trouble to help me! I appreciate it :)

KK20

I see how that mistake could be made. I'll try to make that clear next time ;)
