[XP] Tiling wallpapers for windows

Tiling wallpapers for windows
Authors: Fantasist
Version: 1.1
Type: Graphic Modification
Key Term: Misc Add-on

Introduction

The window background can be tiled in RMXP, but it's normally stretched. This small scriptlet reads the filename of the skin for a tile flag and decides whether to tile or stretch the wallpaper.

Features

  • Tile or stretch the wallpaper depending upon the windowskin filename
  • Customizable tile flag in the filename

Screenshots

Name of the windowskin file is "Clipboard1":


Name of the windowskin file is "Clipboard1 [TILE]:


Don't blame me for the horrible example please ^_^'

Demo

Come on, tell me you aren't that lazy :P

Script

Paste this script above "Main" and below "Window_Base". Paste this BELOW any default scripts you're using any.
(click to show/hide)

Instructions

You can set the TILE_FLAG to any word you want. The wallpaper will be tiled if this word is found in the windowskin filename. The default is "[TILE]", so here are some examples:

Skin1 [TILE]
Skin1[TILE]
Skin[tile]1
[tIlE]Skin1
asdsd[tiLE]asdjfc

Remember that the alphabets are not case-sensitive, meaning [tile], [TILE], [TIle], all of them will work.

Compatibility

Should be compatible with almost everything :)

Credits and Thanks

  • I can't possibly demand credit for something like this ^_^'

Author's Notes

This isn't much of a script. This whole "script", is in essence the "stretch" property of the in-built "Window" class. Here's a quote from the RMXP help file:
Quote
stretch
The wallpaper display method. If TRUE, stretches the wallpaper graphic; if FALSE, tiles it. The default value is TRUE.

Do you like ambient/electronic music? Then you should promote a talented artist! Help out here. (I'm serious. Just listen to his work at least!)
