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

RMMV
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)

Since Final Fantasy VII has been trending today, decided to make a series of my favorite bars in the OG game! Check it out:

At 2021, we are now farther from the 1980's than they were from the 1950's. Consider that the next time you long for a 1980's song, when you thought your grandpa's taste for 1950's music was "outdated".
