Author's Notes



You should alias methods instead of rewriting them.


Recommendation would to have a specific command you use in the events name to show the text. Example: \sn[Name of Event] (sn Show Name) just a suggestion. That would remove a lot of the configuration thats required in your script. And that way it would work with Blizz-Abs enemies.


*looks at Aqua being a mod*
*looks at G_G being a mod*
*looks at topic still not being in the database*

Also, I agree with Aqua and G_G.

I didn't want to move it without it having aliases.

This script makes me horny. Good job!


The script looks nice so far, but I think it really needs G_G's idea. But still, level up :D!

cya :urgh:!

sure, update to new version
look at the instruction


If you want ideas for your script, I'll tell you what I did in mine (screenshots are here):

  • Plugin for Blizz-ABS: Add \(your tag) to the event name to set the shown name to the battler's name. See Screenshots.

  • Various colors: Color of the name sprite depens on the alignment group of the battler (red - enemies, yellow - neutral, blue - allies).

  • And make sure the name sprites aren't drawn outside Scene_Map as in RMX-OS.

PM me if you want to see my script. I would post it here but I just added it as an part of RMX-OS script, since I'm lazy as hell and I'm a terrible scripter.


forgot to update this script,

*updated to 3.02*

changes :
various colors based on alignment
coding improvement

could u put a very tiny demo. i'm a little stuck as the event name wont show up! :(
i tried giving the event a name and put comment:Show Name on the first line but it doesn't work.BTW, not using BABS atm


update the script (fixes incompatibility issues and minor error)

EZ Destroyer


Dude chill out. If he doesn't want to make a demo, he doesn't have to. If you can't figure it out then don't deal with it. Don't get mad when someone ignores you or doesn't wanna help you.

uhhh, r u listening?

i think there is no need for a demo

just use comment in the first line and type
QuoteShow Name

that's all

EZ Destroyer

i did but it's still not working!


Sorry, but I just have to ask: Do you even have the script in? There seems to be no reason it would work for everyone else except for you. Not to mention that you didn't give many details for us to help you.

EZ Destroyer

duh! of course i have the script.


Did you put "Comment: Show Name" or "Show Name" in the comment box?
