Introduction:
This plugin allows your game to read dialogue from an external text file, as opposed to the traditional method of needing to create new show text windows over and over again. Now, there are a few limitations that I intend to find workarounds for (changing window positions and backgrounds).

All text codes are supported! This plugin works alongside YEP_MessageCore and Galv's Message plugins (and any addons and/or patches of said plugins). Just place this below all of them in the load order. More information and instructions can be found in the plugin's help section.

Download:
Dropbox

Required Plugins:
Yanfly's Message Core

When using the "Advanced" idea to have a single txt file for the entire dialog script with sections for every single NPC/Event, the plugin knows where to start based on the control variable. But, how does it know where to end? As it is, won't it go through every single line after the indicated starting point?

The plugin won't know where to end on it's own. Make sure you only use the plugin command the exact number of times you need messages read. If you use it more than you need, that NPC/event will continue speaking lines designated for other NPCs/events.

Alright, got the gist of how it works. Thanks a lot for the clarification.

What about character portraits?
From what I read you can't use several text files?

Since portraits are variable in file name and require an additional script line that cannot be pulled from the message content, I haven't found a way to support them.

However, there could be a plugin that helps display faces through a text code. I recall XP having something of the sort, but not sure about MV. Nonetheless, a face displayed that way would have to sit offset from the message box entirely as not to block text.

Oh, I was just confirmed I'll be doing small online classes during june - july, on one side I'm nervous and looking forward it, on the other one: I've became the very thing I swore to destroy. :kaodes:
Work starts today at 2pm. I hate jeans, but the dress code says I have to wear them... That's how I discovered I was a plus size. Shopping for my first pair of jeans.
Anyhow, I'll post a new video on TheDazzlingsAreBack as soon as I'm able to.

WIP :)
Added some cliffs / walls / roofs to the tilesheet and am currently working on roof objects to make them prettier and more variable. And of course, windows and doors that fit to the game's style.
I also adjusted the grass color but i have some issues with my display, so if it looks weird, please let me know :)
