Well, I tried to make a skill, but the name is too long, so RPG Maker XP doesn't let me type it fully.
Is there a way to make a skill name longer than this limit somehow?


class RPG::Skill
  alias use_database_skill_name name
  def name
    return case self.id
    # Begin config here
    when 1 then 'Ultra-Divine Healing Magic Given by the Gods to a Mere Mortal'
    # when ID then 'Your Skill Name'
    # End config
    else use_database_skill_name
You can basically follow this kind of template for all the other RPG:: classes and their methods.

Just note that, if you're trying to write the skill name in a small area, your text will get squished and be difficult to read and/or chopped off. The character limit the database uses probably assumed usage of the default skill window.

I'm using the default skill window, but the text that goes beyond the character limit doesn't appear squished (which is good ofc)
Thank you very much.
