I am new to rpg maker and have a simple yet complicated question (complicated for a noob (aka me))... How do you change the "Battle Hud" Via Scripting...

THANK YOU

I think that quote would be better in your signature.  Additionally, we can barely see anything in those screenshots since they are all lumped together and very small.  Any way of having the full resolution, individual images posted instead?

I like his Quote. But I agree put it as your signature by going to your profile, hit Edit your profile. On the left side there should be a list of options, one of them should say signature. Click that.

I don't really understand the question.  It's not made very clear, for me anyway.  What is it that you're looking to do?  What image background are you speaking of?

I think what he is asking, is how to, through the use of scripts change the GUI of the combat scene. (Like what the Luna Engine is being designed to do.)

I'm able to see his images clearly. It seems to me he wants to change the background image in the Battle Screen.

So you wanna change it in the middle of battle? take a look at yanfly's field states (yanfly.wordpress.com) coz it changes the battleback mid-game depending on field state

but if you simply want to have different battlebacks per battle, you can set a battleback per map by default using the map properties... if the battle is evented, you can also use event commands to change it before the battle... (these two are quite the basics of battles, so if you don't know it, I suggest you get more familiar with the maker for now)

It's called Battleback by the way, not BattleHUD...

I believe that is not what Renegade Force is looking for adiktuzmiko. See the graphical display in the bottom of all those screenshots that uses a parchment paper type graphic?

What Renegade Force is looking to do is change that part of the battles so it is not the default window that rpg maker uses, but instead use custom art to create the menu that displays the characters status in the battle, and the selection of actions in battle.

There is a script that is being developed called the Luna Engine that will do this with ease. However it is not released yet, although I am guessing through posts and updates it should be coming along pretty soon. Here is a link to the script webpage: http://divisionheaven.wordpress.com/scripts/luna-engine/

Uhm, I said it because 

the Dragon G said

I'm able to see his images clearly. It seems to me he wants to change the background image in the Battle Screen.
then the OP said

Aspetra and The Dragon God hit the spot..

He said that you and TDG hit the spot, and all that TGD said was about the battleback... so I came up with that conclusion... I'm not saying that it's right, I was simply saying that at least it has a logic in it... XD...

Anyway if you want to change the HUD, well you need to know how to script in RGSS3... Else, wait until Luna is released...

so then, you're onto the harder part...

the windowskin isn't a problem since you just need a new one, but to get the others stats there, well it needs quite the scripting...

AFAIK, Luna will allow for easier modification of battle HUD, but IDK if it will include adding new things like those on that screenie...

The information displayed on the battle system are all binded into a constant. This is to ensure that the user can customize their GUIs without having to tinker with the script’s base code. The information binded into constants include: HP, MP, Gradient Bars, Battle Facesets/Portraits/Names, Battle Command Window, X and Y Coordinates and so forth.
If only those will be added as easily configurable constants, then it means that even with Luna, you still need some knowledge of scripting to add other things...

Luna Engine isn't coming out until 2014, or Mid-2014 considering how long it's been taking to come out now, so there isn't any reason to wait.

I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't get released ever.
