These look extremely useful for my next project.  I think from what I have read that they should be compatible with Yanfly's various menu scripts.  Is that the case, or will it be a question of suck it and see?

Thanks for releasing these.

I haven't tested all of YEA's scripts, but I have tested some of the main ones and they seem to work.  Probably best to put my core script near but below YEA's core script (near the top of customized scripts) and put any of my other scripts below YEA's scripts.

Good work! Thanks for sharing :D

Do not be afraid to use more lines, nor create new local variables for intermediate results.

Consider reducing the impact of your structural comments. Focus more on the why and the why-not.

*hugs*

Anyway some new updates to the Columns menu, I've added some new options for the location window, so you can now decide what's in it, where it goes or if it shows up at all.  Also given more options for what appears for the actors (character graphics, busts, TP gauge, etc).

Not an update, but I've explained a feature that I forgot to in BM-messages.  With a switch, you can show a bust image based on the face assigned.

Hey all,  I've been working with ShinGamix recently, finding and fixing issues.  BM-Base and BM-Icons have both been updated to deal with some issues with Yami's Guardian script.  I've also fixed an issue with the drawing of the currency icon and have added actor icons which can be assigned in the Actor's Notebox in the Database.  The actor icons aren't being used for anything but the scripting is there for future usage as well as a shrunken faces (size of icons) that can be used like an icon.

Going by the date and time showing the last edit in your opening post, it looks as if those updates have not been included.  Could I suggest that you put them there as well, because people will automatically assume that that is where the latest version is and won't necessarily scroll down and see them.

the links in the main post are the same because they link offsite to my own website.  The scripts are not hosted on this forum, but my own site where there are also added instructions/help.  I'm on multiple forums, so this was a more efficient way of handling my updates and keeping everything accurately linked.

New updates to to give some new options for BM-Columns Menu and BM-Shop scripts.  For these, you need the updated BM-Base.   It's now up to the user whether they want to use character graphics or scaled down face graphics for the shop status and the item/skill selection windows.

Very interested in using your "YEA Status Screen Add-on" script, however I have a question.

Is there a limit on the number of states and elements that can be displayed, or can it be changed?

Amazing script on the status add on. Is there a way to emulate that to a custom window (just showing that web thing). If so, how?

Do mean to use use this in the default status screen or to use different information to fill the graph?

It is only limited to the size of the window.  Using a higher resolution that you can find in YEA-core, you can therefore fit more elements/states. You can define what elements or states are shown (not likely a reason to show buffs for example).  Just look in BM-YEA Status for: 
Code:
ITEMS_SHOWN={      :element => [9,10,3,4,5,6,7,8], # elements you want shown      :state   => 2..8,  # states you want shown      :param   => 2..7,  # parameters you want shown    } # DO NOT REMOVE 
You can also put this little coding below my script.  It makes the line_height based on the font size that you define, but then it can look squished, so you have adjust to where it's still visually appealing.  

Code:
class Window_StatusItem < Window_Base  def line_height    contents.font.size + 2  endend

Yes, BM. For example, I want to add that web in the default status screen...

Great! That's what I was hoping for.

The games I'm making use a higher number of elements and states, meaning that there's more to be displayed if something like this were used. Glad to know that it can be configured to display more, so long as you have room to display them.

I've finished the VK Equip.  Right now, this needs YEA ace equip engine.  Newer updates may change that.  I tried to be true to the appearance of Valkyrie Stories' equip screen while still being compatible with the default menu.  

UPDATE

Hey man, why don't you do some progress on your game? Oh, because you'd rather wake up at 5am and spend the night making a cosmetics system for your side view battlers? Ok.
