Can I change plugin parameters separately?

There are basic plugin options that I would like to modify. For different situations, I need different values, but the developer did not foresee this. Is there any way to make this parameter "flexible" without interfering with the plugin code?

The short answer is no. Plugin parameters are defined as part of the plugin, albeit with comments rather than code. But you'd have to edit the plugin file in order to change the way the parameters work.

I don't understand what you're asking or what the problem is. You can double-click that parameter to change its value. Is that not enough?

Yes, this parameter can be changed, but it will work all the time with one set value.
For example: I need different values for different events, but if I change this parameter, it will affect all events.
I hope you understand what I mean. Sorry for my English.:kaodes:

Yes, if you want that parameter to change for each message, you'd need a plugin mod to make it a part of the plugin command rather than an overall parameter.

@Galv is this something you would consider doing?

I haven't been very active here or with RPG Maker in the past 4 or so years.

I've only been trying to keep up with bug reports and have no plans to improve any of my old plugins, sorry.

Is there another plugin written that has this functionality you could use instead?

I would suggest using something like Galv's MV message styles as a possible solution. It's not quite the same, but you could set them to appear pretty much anywhere on the map by using a placeholder event. I'm not sure if they can be set to disappear without player input though, I haven't used the plugin in a while.

Another option might be Yanfly Gab Window, but you might have the same issue as with Galv Timed Message Popups when it comes to changing up the location of the window on the fly. Also, this one is behind a bundle pay wall now, so if you don't already have it you will need to purchase the bundle it comes in.

Cool! The famous @Galv wrote in my thread!:LZSbleh:

HumanNinjaToo
The main feature of this plugin is that the character can be controlled during pop-up messages. In the Galv's MV message styles plugin, I do not see this possibility.
In the Yanfly Gab Window plugin, I also do not see the Y positioning option. It turns out I have no options ..
I made a request in another section of the forum. Maybe someone can help me modify this plugin a bit ..

@Galv are you happy for someone else to mod your plugin to provide this functionality?

Just a heads-up that Slip into Ruby and Jump into Javascript might be a bit slow for now while I'm on the team porting the YEP plugins to VisuStella's MZ suite.

But the real question is, can I pull off FF8?

I love these little slime battlers. Really wish I could find more animated ones :'(
The curse of retail: you get ideas, you want to make something with those ideas, but because you're always at friggin' work you can't actually do anything with them.
