So I kinda wanna learn how to do simple scripting, like custom menus etc. catipillers and journal logs..stuff like that..any1 feel like helping someone who's never scripted before?
Nortos will probably give you some pointers here and there, as for learning to script...You're probably at ther wrong place. We don't have academies and stuff here, hint...hint...
I don't think anyone will go as far as to tutor anyone here, srry...
lol, just ask if you have a doubt and someone will try to help :)
Or just make a topic like 'Fallen Star's scripting doubts' or something like that.

The fact that you have never scripted before means that you would need to be taught more than just the language and the system of rmxp, but you need to be taught the basics and syntax of coding in general. I would suggest you learn a little bit of something basic like C before you start scripting. If you don't know what C is, or where to go to learn it, use google. The main things to get to know are variables, loops, functions, and syntax. Then, you should have enough of a background to understand this awesome site (that Fantasist gave to me) http://www.phylomortis.com/html/rgss.html (http://www.phylomortis.com/html/rgss.html) which teaches you about the scripting system of rmxp.
Learning scripting is not something to be taken lightly. You will not be able to make a journal script in your first week.
But if you really want to do it, go ahead.
Never forget, Google and Wikipedia are your friends :)
Lmao...that is so true!! :P You can find practically anything on google or wikipedia!! ;)
Yeah but you can't trust everything you see in Wikipedia :o
Yeh, that is a correct statement :P. Isn't it able to be editted by members or something like that?!? :-\
I'm sure you could even find someone on Google thats willing to coat you down in a gallon of piss for a reasonable price, thats how easy these search engines are nowadays ;)
But I guess I may have overshot and maybe discouraged you...I was like you a while ago also. But I did not ask for help here, I first checked out the tutorials from various sites like RPGRevolution and such...They have nice Tuts...

Lmao!?!?! ;D What the F?!? :P But he is right to everything in that sentence!!!
yea the onyl thing i seem to be good with is story editing and a little graphic.
lol well read a couple tuts... May take some time but heck its helpful ;D
I never learnt C...but I'm a noob scripter lol
I guess you and me Nortos Both have something in common. Through I edited scripts and then read tuts.
yeah, C is not necessary. But for most/some people, it is easier to use to learn the basics, because of the syntax.
The only downside to it is the semicolons.
I think I am going to try to learn C...
Anyway, I'm gonna go to Tech school for CPU Programming, so they'll teach me from the ground up.
I'm hoping to get a bachelor of interactive entertainment with majors in level design there's a uni in my country but I'll have to go interstate
---- "Kinda pointless but read it if you want (contains no useful info, life story kinda)"
To be honest :-\ I dont have to much motavation to start a career in video games and such. Sure I always wanted to make a game but really I only got into this because my friend (F.A.X.) was telling me about this game he was "going to make" with his friend from his old school. Then I started to make a idea for a game with him. Then it when we got older I looked around the internet for programs so we can start making it. (believe it started with A.O.M. expassion). Then I found Rmxp and printed him out a tut. of like 60 pages on scripting! :o. And now he still isnt to fluent on actually scripting, hes good at understanding and reading it tho. :P
lol life story ;D Yeah I still don't quite get scripting :P But yeah try experimenting and reading tuts and stuff :)
When you are a bit more advanced, you can read my e-book about scripting. :)

lol, I get the syntax error alot because I keep forgetting not to use the semicolon. Every language I've worked in (C++, PHP, GML, JAVA, and I think C# too) needs the dreaded semicolon. It still takes getting used to not to press that button at the end of every command.
Actually Ruby does support semicollon. You can add it on the end of every line, I'm just not entirely sure if it completely works like in the other languages. And yes, C#, too. #_#
