Hi there,

I've been attempting to add a help window to the YEP Map Select Skill window, the intent being skills you hover over have their description written in a box above/below the Map Select Skill window.

For those unaware, YEP Map Select Skill replicates the RMMV event command 'Select Item' for skills, wherein a selected skill is saved to a variable.

Here are some visual cues for further elaboration:



I found a similar snippet for the "Select Item" window here, but my lack of experience with Java meant that my tinkering didn't get very far. I thought that maybe replacing all references to Window_EventItem with Window_MapSelectSkill would do the job, but things didn't work out that easily :) For example, I got as far as having a blank help window show up in the top left corner of the screen, permanently.


Some plugin help would be greatly appreciated!

So yesterday I got a follower (follow my NSFW art account) who dmed me and said to me :
if you continue to be friends with [name of the artists] which make me uncomfortable I will have to unfollow and I am like :
... do it?
Did I add too many?? Is there such a thing?

Rabbit's Shop I've been reworking. Still some dated graphics but 99% satisfied I think.:kaophew:
Traps, detecting traps, and disarming traps including treasure traps have now been implemented into my Might and Magic-inspired project. If you don't want to get hurt, you better have a character who focuses on the perception skill, and you better have a character who focuses on the disarm skill!

Done tinkering a project idea for MZ, time to make a little document and wait for the release... :kaoswt:
