Scripting-ish tutorial
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:39:44 AM »
no, i dont want a tutorial on how to script.  I already know how.

What i do want is a tutorial or list that lists the common classes (such as battler, character) and their attributes and what they are used for.  Basically, a short summary of all the built in classes of RMXP.  Doesn't have to be very long or in-depth, just a quick reference, because I keep forgetting what does what, and I hate reviewing all the code.

Thanks :D

Download the full package of my e-book abou scripting. There's an English enhanced RMXP help file which can be pretty useful. It has all methods, definitions, properties and so on from built-in classes. If you wanna know about the classes in the scripts, simply read the comments in the code. Basically 1 slot if for one class. Sometimes more than 1 slot is for 1 class (like Game_Character, Scene_Battle, etc.)

And here's a REALLY good reference (imo):

www.phylomortis.com/html/rgss.html

At the left is a list of all classes, and on clicking them, you'll get the code, and a brief-deep explanation of each method. Just have a look at least, it's worth it.

I'm not asking you to credit him in every script you make if that's what you're thinking :o

That's a resource, and you've learnt from it. Credit him if you feel like it ^_^
