I want to use an event comment or an event name to call a block in the database, but I've no idea how to do it specifically. Can someone walk me through this? It'll save me a ton of lines if I didn't have to waste variables($game_variables not @variables) noobing my way through this.

I don't know if this is the right forum so sorry in advance.

I'm a bit too green to do advanced systems properly. I'm willing to pay enough to make it worth your time if you're not really motivated to help.

This works way better than an evented 8 way direction, however, the one problem is this allows the player to move diagonally while jumping which breaks my jump system completely. If this can't be disabled with a  I'll have to remove it.

# ** Eight Directional / Multiple Frame Movement Script v2         (10-05-2006)
#    by DerVVulfman
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
#  This system allows the user to have either 4 OR 8 directional movement by
#  the events and player sprites he uses.  It also allows the user to set up
#  the number of animation frames and whether a generic idle pose is used.

#==============================================================================

# * Configuration Section *

  DIR_8_CHAR    = false    # This enables/disables 8 directional charsets
  DIR_8_CONTROL = true    # This enables/disables 8 directional movement
  DIR_8_POSES   = false    # This enables/disables 8 directional facing
  DIR_8_FRAMES  = 4       # This holds the number of motion frames when walking
  DIR_8_STAND   = false    # This determines if separate frame used for standing
  $dir_8_fram   = {1 => 8, 2 => 4}

I'm not trying to constantly ask for help (I feel really bad bothering everyone). I tried my hardest to find a solution for this, but I've absolutely no idea what to do.

I'd like to call walk_anime out of a move player/ event command, but without editing I can't call it without errors. I'm sorry again, but if anyone could help me with this I'd be grateful.
6
Does it exist?  It's very convenient
7
I'd like to make it so I can call another event's/ player passable with  any event's move route. The Game_Character section itself says it's $game_player.through = true, but it isn't. Can someone help out?

Script Requests / Script Call for changing event graphic.
February 18, 2018, 07:43:15 pm
I tried searching the database and all I could find was @tile_id and set_graphic. Set graphic seems to give me errors while tile_id feels like it's for terrain. Can anyone give me an example call snippet for changing the in game graphic for events or player?

What I've tried -

$game_player.set_graphic('1139', 0, 2, 0)
$game_map.events[2].set_graphic('1139', 0, 2, 0)

This isn't a "commercial" request as I have no desire to charge money for anything I make in RM. However, the new blood in RM Greenlight really pisses me off... their subpar products for actual money. So, I've decided to release something free on the platform that lampshades their efforts. I've run into a few issues though... evented systems and the basic RGSS (using RMXP as I feel it's the best RM aesthetically) seem to constantly give me bugs. I'll need someone versed into the engine to give me assistance/ guidance... and in turn you will be paid for your time.

So, if you desire to help me we can talk price.

How do I check to see how big a party is with a script call? I'm trying to set up a common event that checks the party size. Is it something like

if $game_party.size[3] then blah blah blah de blah blah?
11
Is there anyway possible to make the controls


Synchronized with the keyboard? (hopefully you'll understand what I'm implying)

I guess this is a better place to ask the questions.
I want to play battle animations for the map without placing an event. This may be a bit hard to understand, but I want to play it on the map coords by itself. Something like a lightning strike or something. Can someone help me with the script call required to do it?

In this battle [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9DLhrfdYIE&;]
I'm trying to make it so rocks fall on random locations so the player wont just camp and button mash.

Script Requests / Quest notification/ menu system.
July 15, 2012, 03:05:57 pm
Not much to it. I'm just requesting a quest system that has a pop up on the map screen.  Something like a HUD that scrolls down and scrolls back up or a 3 second prompt that pops up on the right or left side of the screen that notifies the player when a quest is received.

General Discussion / A tip to all hopeful game makers.
February 29, 2012, 04:29:15 am
Pick a genre and stay with it...
Stop bloody trying to throw in everything and a cow. Take the time to plot out and brainstorm instead of just doing crap.

Storyboard
Write ideas on notepads
PLAN
and for the love of god flesh out your stories.


I would not give two fucks if Breast McTits died  if I didnt get the time to know her. You make characters endearing and 3 dimensional and MAKE the person experiencing the game mourn the losses. I am bloody sick of seeing amateur games with potential fall short because they want to copy cool things they saw other people do.

Here is another tip... stop compiling on scripts in the absence of actual content.
21
As you know I'm no novice when it comes to crap like this, but I do need someone to spot me (figuratively) with this stuff.


1. Boss charges player giving them little time to dodge.


2. Boss charges behind (to make sure player doesn't camp)


3. Boss jumps high in air and tries to squash player.

Cool down time and repeat.

Event Systems / Reaction Time for Babs
January 30, 2011, 01:11:33 am
This just came to me and usually I hog all my ideas to myself, but... I think it'd be a bit more fun if I let people in on a few tricks of the trade.

-Map Event-
Step 1. Disable movement by using the \move feature and turn down the event's view range to 0 in pt. 1 of the script database
Step 2. Make a conditional event checking is in range of the player (ForeverZero's range condition is perfect for this as it mimics Blizz's view range without triggering enemy A.I.)
Step 3. Turn on a switch that is not in use (Example: Switch[001] ON)
Step 4. Add a wait command in the conditional event (Example: Wait[20])
Step 5. Turn off the switch (Example: Switch[001] OFF)
Step 6. Make a conditional event within the conditional event checking if another switch is on (Example: Conditional Branch: if Switch[002] ON) and check else
Step 7. If the switch is on play a sound effect (or whatever you want to do to make it seem like something amazing just happened) to show that you just activated the parry/reaction and afterward turn off Switch[002]
Step 8. In the else case make a force_action command that forces an attack/ skill

-Common event-
Step 1. In a free common event slot select 'Parallel Process' that checks to see if the first switch is on. (Switch[001]
Step 2. (Assuming you're using B-abs] Make a conditional event that checks to see if a key is pressed (Conditional branch: Input.press?(Input::Key['D'])
Step 3. In that conditional branch turn on Switch[002]
25
I'm trying to make an add-on for the B-ABS. This add-on will use pictures to show which skill/item is equipped instead of icons, however... I've come across a snag. I am aware that you show pictures with 'image.bitmap = RPG::Cache.picture("Picture_")'. I've no clue how to make it so that it properly checks to see if a skill is equipped let alone to make it emulate equipping skills and such.

Chapter 2.3: Adaptation to Circumstance: The Legend and the Thief

Nova awakens in robes that seems as a sages attire. He looks around the cave for Precious but to no avail. He decides to step out of the cave and notices Precious is sitting holding her knees looking at the sky. 

Precious: It's only a matter of time until Ain' Muc is in ruins.
Nova: ...
Precious: Rumors in Malro tells of a campaign of two hooded travellers that can destroy man made communities in mere hours.
Nova: .. Hooded travelers... Jean..
Precious: I know your answer to this information.. which is why I am sad. I wish you would stay with me.
Nova: My wounds are healed, I've no reason to stay here and rot.
Precious: I know.. I bought you this rapier, I've heard rumors of Neigi Nobles being more agile with this sword.
Nova: You have my gratitude, woman.
Precious: .. Just.. if you ever come back my way.. would you visit?
Nova: I make no promises..

Nova gears up and leaves with no more words exchanged.
Precious clinches her knees tighter as Nova leaves.


The story switches over to Murial from here on in.
Murial: The next page is missing.. 
Starlight is heard in the background screeching for Murial to escape.
Murial: Starlight? Oh man, not now!

-Murials Introduction cutscene-
Two guards run in the doorway.

Guard 1: There she is!
Guard 2: Dont let her get away!

A guard runs towards Murial and tries to strike her with a sword .. Time slows down for Murial as she tries to look without turning around.


Murial: Boys.. cant we just forget about this?

The guard ignores Murial's plea and swings the blade with the intent of cutting her through. Murial turns around swiftly and crouches evading the blow, she then retialiates with a uppercut. The guard flies one way and the sword the other, Murial turns around catching the sword throwing it at the other guard.. The camera changes to the other guard blocking the sword with his focusing on the sword. When the guard tries to find Murial she already left the room.

Murial: Crap, crap, crap, crap!

Murial runs out of the room and slides past the corner in slow motion dodging another sword slash. The camera then goes to normal speed as she sweep kicks the guard and goes back to slow motion when she impacts it then goes back to normal motion.Murial jumps over his body when he hits the grown.

She then runs into a dead end.

Murial: Oh no.

Two guards are closing in behind her she jumps at the wall and boosts off of it. The camera speed slows down once again as she smirks at one guard and it speeds up again as she pasts him. There is another guard waiting for her as she reaches the corner one more time. The Guard tries to impale her by lunging forward, time slows down as Murial kicks the sword away. Murial then uses the momentum from her first kick to strike the guard in the face with a roundhouse kick.
Murial then makes a quick dash down the hallway and slides past an iron bar baracade before it closes.


Murial: .. never a dull day.

Murial then walks down the corridor looking for an exit. Running into a female guard the guard gets into a fighting position.


Female Guard: Hold it right there, forbidden.
Murial: Hmm? Ya' got somethin' to tell me, doll?
Female Guard: DIE!

Murial then adjusts her glove and runs her thumb across her nose as prepares to fight.


-- Cutscene ends --

Battle
Murial Cries:
How's this!
Too easy.
Too slow.

Guard Cries:
Stop right now!
Prepare to die!
You cant win!

Guard 40 hp

-cutscene 2-

Murial: Hmm? Now that was a bit too easy.
Guard 1: There she is!
Guard 2: Dont let er' get away, this time.
Murial: *Sigh*

Murial throws her hands up and the scene blacks out. Outside the Museum guards enter and exit. A conversation is held between two guards.


Guard 1: Damn armor is too hot to wear in these conditions.
Guard 2: Yeah, tell me about it. Lucky bastards inside are enjoying the crisp breeze of the lower levels while we're cookin.
Guard 1: They ain' so lucky, I heard a forbidden thief made her way inside. She easily handled five guards on her own. She's a match for our bombshell among privates.
Guard 2: I heard she beat Sandra, she pretty much surpassed the bombshell.
Guard 1: I hope she doesnt make her way outside, among privates Sandra was the best.
Guard 2: Nah, they cornered her.. its said around the castle that she was killed.
Guard 1: Killed? Jeez the higher ups sure are unforgiving.

(In the background)
A female guard bumps into another guard and apologies.

Female Guard: S- Sorry.
Guard: Watch where you goin next time, eh?
Female Guard: R-right.

The female guard walks past the Guard talking when they talk about her being killed.

Guard 1: Even in armor, the women's bodies are quite amazing. Right?
Guard 2: Oh yeah! How about we find some females and go out to the pub for a drink later?
Guard 1: You dont have to ask me twice!

The guards pick up their weapons and walk towards the museum, the scene then fades. Outside in the woods the female guard takes off her helmet whipping her hair revealing herself to be Murial.


Murial: Close one.  Lucky me, the guards I fought were so weak.
*Starlight calls circling above the forest.*
Murial: Starlight, come!

Before anyone says anything... I'm building this castle in game by hunting material. =/ The castle is so huge that there is no way I can get it in one shot no matter what mode I use or how far away from it I am. It's so huge that traveling through ALL the finished rooms in it takes one half a minecraft day and it's not even partially finished yet. (There is more than one level to the castle. I predict it'll have 3 floors the last will probably strike bedrock or be pretty close to it.)

Inside the castle walls but not inside the castle.
Dialup warning... well cable warning too: ShowHide


Inside the castle first room. (Note: This was originally made with clay but I changed it to obsidian and left it that way even though I hate how it looks now. Obsidian is a bastard to clear... 5 obsidian takes 2 songs to collect.)
Dialup warning... well cable warning too: ShowHide


Inside the castle walls. (Note: I leveled 3 mountains to clear the path... and I'll do it again.)
Dialup warning... well cable warning too: ShowHide


This is not the whole castle it's just a side of the castle... compared to the actual size it's tiny.
Dialup warning... well cable warning too: ShowHide



P.S. that's just the framework I'll have to level the castle and rebuild it when I finish getting the feel of it to make it perfect.
