I'm noticing a space between the Color.new and the parentheses. Remove the space and you should be good. It's one of those syntax changes introduced between Ruby 1.8 and 1.9

It worked, thank you!

However, I am having a few issues. I currently have 848 maps as of right now in one project. On all 848, everything works fine without XPA but when I install XPA, the 848th map will crash if I attempt to move within it. This is the traceback.log.

But on the other 847, it will load as it should.

However, some maps have issues with me clipping through walls and this happens no matter if the tiles are set to an X or not.

Wait, never mind. Well, sort of. I did not have debug mode turned on. Strange, though if I was to launch through the game, it would be normal.

KK20

Error is pointing towards Game_Map's virtual_passability, which is related to INTELLIGENT_PASSABILITY. I'm sure you understand this creates a file 'Map_Data.abs' in your project folder so that all the collision data on maps can be loaded quickly. This file is created every time you run your game in debug mode (playtest from inside the editor), running through all the maps in your project.

Basically this error is telling me that you made this Map_Data.abs file before when you had 847 maps, made the 848th map, then attempted to play your game through the Game.exe directly (not through the editor). The 848th map's collision data was never created and stored in the Map_Data.abs, so the game was effectively trying to pull non-existent data.

So in other words, would it be best to disable intelligent passiblity?

Also, I notice that when talking to NPCs, the talk window is at the top. How do I bring it down to the bottom?

KK20

I mean, all you have to do is playtest your game at least once (just run the game, the file will be generated before you see the title screen) before distributing your game. You can disable it if you want.

Ccoa UMS has a setting where if you're in battle, the window's Y coordinate is set to 16. Makes sense if you're using the default battle system (your party's UI window is at the bottom of the screen) but BlizzABS has a thing where the flag $game_temp.in_battle is almost always on.

So to disable it for good, just look for that variable in Ccoa's script (appears 5 times for me) and replace it with just false, like

    if false #$game_temp.in_battle
      self.y = 16


if $game_system.text_mode == ALL_AT_ONCE #or $game_temp.in_battle

Just to clarify, I think I found it 5 or 6 times. Some of them have a self.y = 16, others had @gold_window.y = 192. I did your trick on all of them along with a script patch that gave CCoa's UMS compatibility with custom resolution scripts such as the one you use.

Thank you so much!

KK20

You made sure to replace every single existence of $game_temp.in_battle in the script? That's really the only reason it's showing at the top; nothing else affects it.
Only other thing would be $game_system.message_position is still equal to 0. Set it to 2 instead.

Yeah, it worked well.

Also, I just noticed a HUGE performance boost in an area with 30 events, which is a lot in this one area as it had the most slow down of all areas. I set the resolution to 800x600 with the priority layers set to 3 and I've never seen anything like this before. This is fantastic!

KK20

Interesting. A higher resolution contributes to more lag and nothing was done to improve event performance. I guess Ruby 1.9 is all the credit for that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Higher resolution can cause lag, yes but it also depends on how big you set your resolution to. If you set it to something huge like 1920x1080, regardless of priority layers then yeah, you're going to have some lag but if you set it something a little small like 800x600, then you're fine just as long as you set the priority layers to something like 3.

KK20

Updated to v2.34

XPA Tilemap up to v0.42
XPA_Window up to v1.4 - this brought changes to the licensing; Blizzard has provided instructions in the script, or read them on the topic itself: https://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php/topic,15339.0.html

And the DLL

I try de fixed it in different way, but I always have this error :



Thanks for your XPA system !

Towards the bottom you see
if defined?(Hangup) #xp
Try changing it to
if true
Since this is technically XP, we need the methods defined below it.

Hi there,

To begin with I really wanted to thank you for this amazing job, XPA is absolutely awesome and a real game changer (okay sorry about that pun  :^_^': ).

So, I successfully converted my project and all the scripts to be compatible with XPA but I have two issues remaining since I upgraded to XPA.
The first one is the way the text is squeezed to fit in text boxes, especially in the help_window it's either unnecessarily squeezed like here:
(second line)

Or it's being cut and rewritten on the text box like so:


I double checked and didn't have those problem before. I also tried to increase the width of the help_window but without any effect.
Is there any way I could fix that or maybe disable the automatic squeezing of the text? I actually don't like this feature that much anyway. My game is running at 854x480p.

My second question has to do with when a Musical Effect is being played and the transition to the BGM. In RMXP the ME would play and when it finishes it would automatedly start the BGM but it seams like now a small fade in is applied to the BGM. Is there any way I could disable this fade in?  :???:
I use a ME to play the intro of my in-game music and the BGM to play the main loop and the fade in makes it sound really weird.

Thank you so much for your help!  :haha:

KK20

What scripts are you using for those screenshots there? I know in VXA there's actually a hard-coded limit of only being able to draw 640 pixels wide. I think you would have to use this script to get around that.
https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/text-cache.1001/

I don't know what you mean by the ME and BGM. The fade-in is present in both XP and VXA (confirmed it just now). If you're using an ME to play the intro and the BGM to do the loop, you should really look into converting your song into one OGG file. Then you can put LOOPSTART and LOOPLENGTH tags. Here's a guide:

Thank you so much for your help, both of my problems are now solved!

I was using OGG but I didn't know about the LOOPSTART and LOOPLENGTH tags, was this feature present in the original RMXP as well ? Because if not that's actually a great new feature.
Anyway, now everything works perfectly.

Thanks a lot!

KK20

I think it was first incorporated into VX's engine, at least that's what others told me.

Line 279 seems to point to this bit in the script:
Spoiler: ShowHide
 #Dubealex's Font Change Feature
    @now_text.gsub(/\\[Tt]\[(.*?)\]/) do
    buftxt = $1.to_s
    $ams.font_type = buftxt
    @now_text.sub!(/\\[Tt]\[(.*?)\]/) { "" }
    end
  #End of new command


Would anyone have any suggestions on what I can try to get rid of this error?

Many thanks!
