CGMV Encyclopedia
By: Casper Gaming (Casper667)
Last Update: 9/7/2020
Latest Version: 1.8
dxEPbU0.png

This plugin creates an encyclopedia system. It includes enemies, items, weapons, armors, skills, and states by default. You can also add as many custom categories with as many entries as you want. This plugin works well with the achievement plugin for achievements based on encyclopedia completion percentages.

  • Encyclopedia Scene displaying all categories of the encyclopedia the user wants
  • All setup is done through the plugin manager
  • Entries automatically or manually tracked
  • Compatible with CGMV Achievements
  • Custom encyclopedia categories (as many as you want)

I will work on getting it to scroll by the user controls rather than automatically. I'm not sure what other plugins will work with it since I only test with my own CGMV plugins.

Updated to version 1.1. This version adds a much requested feature of allowing the user to manually scroll the display window.

1.1:
- Can now scroll with Arrow Keys and Mouse Wheel
- No longer relies on deprecated CGMV Core commands

Sorry, forgot to say that this requires CGMV Core 1.3+ not 1.2+ like last version.

Hello casper, thanks for this great plugin :)
I wanted to ask you how I could solve this problem.

The plugin conflicts with SuperToolsEngine of SumRndmDde if I move the "CGMV_Window_EncyclopediaDisplay" window.
The error, however, does not create problems in the game, but it is annoying to see it there in the console.

I'm not too sure, the _discovered property it apparently can't read is whether or not the encyclopedia entry is discovered. This probably means for some reason it has been passed a null entry (for example if it is trying to refresh and the cursor hasn't selected an entry). SRD's plugin might refresh the window when it moves (not entirely sure what his plugin all does - I only test with my own plugins and the default RMMV code).

I can add an additional check for the refresh method to do nothing if the data is null, but since it doesn't seem to cause problems outside of reporting an error in the console I will probably just include this in the next update to this plugin whenever that may be.

If you want to test this fix out you should be able to put the following code at the bottom of the plugin and let me know if that fixes it:

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Refresh
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CGMV_Window_EncyclopediaDisplay.prototype.refresh = function() {
this.setupWindowForNewEntry();
if(this._data) this.drawEncyclopediaEntry();
};

Great plugin but can you add a option of search in the encyclopedia because i want to create a giant encyclopedia of my universe.If i (and the player) can go directly where he want i think it's good.

I am also having problems with loading this plugin: just after start the game appears this:

Also, when I change to window mode does this:
9c8efe7a74615c490da0031ad6fea3a5.png


And if there i push keys, message changes to property 'onKeyDown'

I know you will hate me forever for this, but, just for helping you a little bit, here is my list of plugins:

Does this happen on every startup? What version of MV are you on?

I have made a possible fix (hard to know for sure since this doesn't happen in my test projects) for you, please try downloading a new version of CGMV Core here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/616j6abwh506j1s/CGMV_Core.zip/file and let me know if that fixes the issue (should fix the onKeyUp and onKeyDown problem).

Sorry for not answering until now, i was fixing another thing and until end with that didn't wanted to start with this.

Ive applied your fix and it remains equal, never works, not even the battle test

Could you test with a brand new project with only my plugins? This will let me know whether it is an incompatibility somewhere or if there is an issue with my plugin somewhere that for some reason is not occurring in my test project.

Could you send me a PM with your project, or any project that has the error (unencrypted), so that I can open it in the editor and test because right now I am not really able to reproduce the bug so any fix I might try would just be an educated guess as to what might be causing it.
