I'd like to make choices for npcs more interesting and I have no ideea how to make this happen.


Here I will let an example i made in paint.


When the player talks to npc it will show some options like: Talk, Fight, etc... next to it.


I guess this can be made with pictures.. but... you will need a different image position for every npc location. I need an easier way to do this.


I would be thankful if you would help me

Using pictures will not allow the player to select any choice even if you solve the problem of positioning.


So you'll need a rather complex script to create the entire handling for such a structure - if you don't know how to program that is not easy to obtain as a lot of the scripters are working on MV-Plugins instead of Ace-Scripts now.


Why can't you simply use the show choices command on the event? That will handle everything automatically, although not at the position you described.

I just think that the way i wanted looked way cool.


I do not know how to program but i have an ideea. If I would have a script that puts an image on a side of the NPC, i could use variables to make it selectable.


(something like making an menu screen with events)

Is it interesting to get more backstory on villains? A key moment in their past, their childhood, or maybe something that shows they've always been that way? To see or not to see?
