@padr81 No, but what you can do is have a conditional branch after the minigame that checks if the switch was turned on, then you can add 1 to whichever variable you want ^^
Thanks mate thats awesome.

@mjshi It seems that the links referred to the 'Alternate Graphics' and the 'Swipe Input Compatible Version' are no longer available. Can you please upload them in other server?

Thanks in advance!

I love this plugin, thank you so much for sharing it with us ^_^
I customized the little icons and came up with this:

@Oscar92player I managed to scrounge up the email that had the alternate graphics set and I've restored the link via dropbox. Only thing is I can't really find my swipe input compatible version of this :kaoswt2:

I'll look around some more, but if @JamesRyan could somehow find his it'd be a huge help! Otherwise, I'll just rewrite it. I'm sure if I could fix it once I can fix it again ^^

Thanks for letting me know! I'll know to not rely on tinyupload in the future.

@Fernyfer775 Looks nice! The colorful buttons remind me of one of those old retro gamepads. The fail message is a nice touch xD

This is a great creation, I tried it, but I found that it can not be executed at the same time with picture, how do I perform it while displaying a picture or movie?
P.S. English is not very good. If you find that my grammar is wrong, please bear with me.

@JamesRyan Thank you very much! You saved me a lot of work xD I've updated the link in the main post.

@yoshiyuki Are you trying to use this for like quicktime events or something? You can change the background of the minigame, but you can't show this during a movie unless you pause the movie. This can be used for that, but you'd need some workarounds. Could you explain what you want to use this for so I can suggest some?

Thanks for your reply, I am currently making a mini-game
Since I also found a plugin, it can add the specified movie to a picture event
I hope to combine with Chain Commands, so that a simple dancing game can be completed

The problem after the current test is
Prior to the implementation of Chain Commands, the film normal dial
However, after the execution, the video will temporarily stagnate and then execute Chain Commands
Although after the end, the video will continue with the previous progress, but this intermittently affects the gaming experience.
So I want to find a solution to this problem

This is a link to the plugin

I recorded a video, hoping to give you a more direct understanding of the problem

@yoshiyuki The video was very helpful, thank you! So I see what you're trying to do is make a quicktime event in the middle of the video. That's not really something supported by this plugin. Sorry I can't help more!

Could you give me a screenshot of your event page so I can see how it's set up? I might have a couple solutions to offer then, but I can't guarantee that I'd be able to solve your problem.

Chinese translation: (please do not use Chinese to reply, this is for your convenience. 请别用中文回答,这是为了你的方便。)

视频很有帮助,谢谢!你好像在做一个快速时间的东西(就是要游戏者赶紧摁几个按钮)。虽然那样的事是我写这个plugin的本来的原因,这不是它其中的一个的支持使用。我只能帮你这一点,真的对不起!

如果你能给我一个你的event page的截图,我也许能提议一些另外的方法。但是我不能说我肯定能帮你解决这个问题。

2. Display pictures
3. Waiting: 180 frames
4. Set the variable: \V[23] = 20
5. Loop
Set the variable : \V[22] = Random 1..4
If \V[22] = 1 ;Plugin command : ChainCommand random:1
If \V[22] = 2 ;Plugin command : ChainCommand random:2
If \V[22] = 3 ;Plugin command : ChainCommand random:3
If \V[22] = 4 ;Plugin command : ChainCommand random:4
If the ChainCommand switch is ON
{
If \V[23] = \V[24]
{
Break the loop
Else
Set the variable : \V[24] += 1
Waiting: 180 frames
}

However, it did not succeed

If you still need to provide information, please tell me, thank you very much for your help.

@yoshiyuki I've added a feature that lets you change the background image used.

Just do:
ChainCommand.bgImage = "bg"
or
ChainCommand.bgImage = "background2"

to change the image displayed in the background. One possible way to use this to work around your video disappearing problem is to have a screenshot of the image from the video, and use that as the background image for Chain Commands. But really, since the scene is being changed there's not much I can do besides this, to keep the video on the screen.

That said,
update 1.1
- Added ability to change the background with a script command call
- Fixed a bug with the command save/remember stuff not being remembered across game saves

(and don't worry, @JamesRyan , I updated the Swipe Input version this time too ^^)

Thank you for your update
But after the update, "ChainCommand random:1" or "ChainCommand up" cannot execute the command

Please respond in English-- I'm guessing you're google-translating these posts.

To non-chinese speakers, what basically happened was yoshiyuki quoted my post and said:
"thank you for updating, but now ChainCommand plugin commands don't work"

I'll look into it and get back to you ASAP!

edit @yoshiyuki
I don't have the same problem as you do. I can run everything just fine. Make sure you're using ":" and not ":", those are two different characters.

Yes, Google is a good helper
I just re-arranged the plug-in, or removed it and set it again. The result is still not executed.

@yoshiyuki I don't have any of your problems--

Try putting the plugin into a new project and see if you still have the same issues. If yes, it's a problem with the plugin, if no, it might be a problem with your project. But try copy/pasting this as a plugin command and see if it works:

ChainCommand random:1

I try to open a new project
No other plug-in still fails to execute correctly
But changing back to version 1.0 will do

That's really, really strange. Do you think you could upload your project (do not deploy it, just put your entire project folder in a zip file and upload it) to Google Drive or Dropbox and send me the link? I can try to figure out what's wrong.

This is a new project
No extra increase or deletion
I only add ChainCommand and need to use pictures
Although there are a few changes to the parameters to resize the picture
However, this should not affect the implementation of the plug-in
Unfortunately, it still failed.

@yoshiyuki aha. You downloaded the wrong version xD That's the Swipe Input compatible version, which requires Swipe Input. The normal version is in the zip file and you need to extract it.

Make sure that the thing in red is not there. That's when you know you have the right one.

It's my mistake
The correct file has been downloaded and confirmed to be executed normally
Thank you very much for your patience
I am very much looking forward to your follow-up creation and update

Working on a new menu for my game. I'm not sure if I should get the Lune Engine to make it more unique. I think I'll be making the text color more white to match the "Menu" color. I may add some little stamps or markings to make it look more like it's paper.
SF_Monster6 added!

Wonder when the next theme contest is coming?
Long time no see. I'm aiming a vertical slice / tech demo for my game featuring a series of boss battles this month. I hope I could get some testers.
