    What does $date_items actually repersent?

    Thank you very much. You seem to be quite experienced and have answered my question clearly and concisely, I appreciate it. Thank you for your advice. I'll certainly put it to good use. I suppose the moderator can close this thread now.

    What does $date_items actually repersent?

    Hu.. That's quite interesting. So, if I'm understanding it correctly, if you start a new game and have no items, when you gain an item it runs that method and add's it to the @items hash. If you continue from a save file, then it will run that method again for every item you have (Which I would...

    What does $date_items actually repersent?

    One more minor question. From what I can tell, the hash is empty before this little line of code. At what point is it populated by the keys and values? I couldn't really find a place where I saw @items getting any value besides nil (empty). Does that line call $date_items to the hash before...

    What does $date_items actually repersent?

    Thanks. I'll direct anymore RGSS  related questions towards that area of the forum. This explanation pretty much answers everything. Thanks for your quick reply. My main confusion was that I wasn't sure what the keys and values were. Lists and menus work a lot with index's, which start at 0 and...

    What does $date_items actually repersent?

    I've teaching myself ruby scripting since I happen to have RPG maker VX Ace. Learning how Ruby works is one thing, but learning how to manipulate in while in RPG maker is completely different. So many modulus, classes, inheriting classes, and methods that are all interconnected across it's...

    Ah, I think I found Your problem. You said you are printing the value of the variable on the 3ed turn and it's coming up 3? Well that's to be expected, since you haven't actually changed its value. In your conditional you say: if ($game.variables[57] \ 3) == 1 Your asking if the variable...

    I personally like to set up instance variables for stuff like this, so it doesn't confuse the system. You create, name, and set a instance variable's value, as the name implies, for this instance only. These variables are script specific, unless you you do some other stuff I'm not going to get...

    No. Since your using the $game_actors[4] call it goes to the system and looks at the actor index. So even if you had actor 4 and not actor 2 or 3 in the party, in or out of a battle, it would still look for the same actor. I took the code you just used and tested it without the other...

    Substitue Attack script help

    Hm, it sounds like that would be a better place for it, but I figured Shaz knows more than I do about the forum and all. He's sure to see this, so I'll leave it in his hands. I'll continue to work on this when I have time. I've been looking at tutorials and stuff, but it's hard for to come up...

    Substitue Attack script help

    Ok so I friend asked about an idea of theirs, and wither or not it was possible. I know that it is and had been working on it a bit, but I couldn't find any references about this particular thing anywhere I looked so I decided to make a thread here and see if anyone could help me. So he wants...

    Turns out it was just a compatibility issue with another script that he had. My script works fine.

    I don't understand... hmm. if I remember correctly all I did was delete that line and retyped that same thing back into the same place. It confused that heck out of me that it worked. I don't see how there can be any problem when I'm using the exact script and it's working for me. I'm sorry...

    Try it now. I edited it. I had that same error when I was making it the first time. Must have posted that one I had saved on notepad instead of the one in the script editor. There should be no reason for it. The argument is perfectly valid. I have tested it several times. It works now. Let me...

Just going to use stationary water for the randomized maps. Sure, particles would look cool... But this is about compromising and not spending countless hours making the perfect water particle for each set piece with water. :kaoswt:
Maybe I should get rid of the Banish ability in my game. It's a non-elemental spell that doesn't even appear in the magic chart. It's only there because my Elementalist doesn't use light or dark magic. It only effects summoned creatures.

I've been redoing all of the major areas in my game. starting with a place called Century Park. thankfully because all of the locations are distorted memories, I can make these places pretty abstract.
