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!

It's my cute little ghost~
Minecraft Dungeons is a great example of a game that's much simpler than other games in its genre but almost as equally immersive and fun to play. Lotta RPGmaker devs could learn from that lesson.
Well, it's been a while since the last time I came here... Is there a JS scripting FAQ? I'd like to know what it's capable of achieving, and how :rswt
