Game Data Reloader
Authors: Blizzard
Version: 1.1
Type: Debug Tool
Key Term: Game Utility



Introduction

This Script will allow you to reload game data while playtesting the game. It can reload database game data and map data including refreshing the current map you are in so you can view the changes you have made in your game right away without restarting it. When refreshing the map, it will be reloaded as if you exited and reentered the map, resetting all events to its initial positions and resetting the map into its initial state. To be able to make actual use of this script, always run the game from the Game.exe, never from the editor.

Author's Notes

When refreshing the map during event execution, the event execution will continue. This can cause bugs (especially during auto-run events that change switches and variable) so be careful if you want to refresh a map during event execution.
Changes in scripts cannot be reloaded. If you made changes to a script, you have to restart the game for the changes to apply.

If you find any bugs, please report them here:

That's it! N-Joy! =D

Nice Blizz, this will come in handy.

I know the next statement will be false, though I need to ask you.
Getting back into RMXP?  :^_^':

No. I put this up because I was asked to. And I've actually promised to put it up a while ago, but I forgot about it and never did. It's not like I am creating anything new in RMXP. I only took it out of my debugging tools from CP and edited it a bit here and there. That's all. It took me about half an hour to do all of this, it's not a big deal. Don't be surprised if that happens again. After all, I have quite a collection of neat stuff that I created which I never shared with anybody.

I really like to see other things u made in the future.

Be sure to post them some day ^^

This is really useful, more so that at first you're not sure if it's useful or not... But when you've used it for a while, it turns out to be really useful.

Is there a way to reload the scripts. Maybe by using the $RGSS_SCRIPTS global variable or something?
I am done scripting for RMXP. I will likely not offer support for even my own scripts anymore, but feel free to ask on the forum, there are plenty of other talented scripters that can help you.

Ah, excellent.  You liked my amusing sideshow, yes?  I'm just a simple fool, my wit entertains the wise, and my wisdom fools the fools.



I'm like the bible, widely hated and beautifully quotable.
