Cross Reference Tool
2016.12.22
by Shaz

Introduction
This plugin shows you where all your database items have been used throughout your project

How to use
Add to your plugins folder (name is irrelevant but I use CrossReferenceTool.js). There are no parameters to set and no plugin commands to run.  There will be a new menu option on your Title Screen menu (assuming you don't have a plugin that modifies your Title Screen menu - if you do, just add a SceneManager.push(Scene_XRef); to it somewhere).


For events, the #:# refers to the page and line numbers.  A 0 means it's a condition rather than an event command.  These are used for common events, troop events, and map events.


Remove the plugin prior to deployment.  This is a development tool only.

Plugin
Download from pastebin

Terms
- free for use in the creation of commercial games (plugin should be removed before deployment, whether commercial or not)

Notes
- looks for \v[x] escape code in all database text that could be displayed as well as message and choice boxes


- looks for v[x] codes in damage formulae


- does NOT look at scripts or plugins, script calls in any event commands, plugin commands, or any other damage box info


- after launching the game, there will be a delay the first time you choose the XRef option while the references are being retrieved


- the Change Equipment command, when used with slot 2, will result in both a weapon and an armor reference.  The logic is that only when that command is encountered during play can we know whether the actor, their class, or any of their states allow dual wielding.  So both are retrieved as a 'better safe than sorry' measure.  If this is a pain for the majority of people I will change it and only look at the actor and their class as set in the database.


- if you have plugins that add more escape codes to message boxes and/or damage formulae and you want to add to this plugin, the functions of interest will be XRefManager.scanDbText and XRefManager.scanDmg - you will need to be familiar with regular expressions.


Please comment with any issues/errors you encounter.

Jeez...
I finally decide, after several ppl asking me to, to create a gamethread about project M... And my internet craps out on me halfway through the process :(
making my first game is like trying to stuff all my experience with old games into one
so its slow and painful when i dont get it right... i bet the next game is gonna be finished earlier!
When you don't find any time to work... :kaocry:
First Ten Minutes of my Caretaker inspired game

Finally, I got a good Gmail message [from smg5urded]
"This game does look a bit plain, but, I'm sure this does not destroy the experience as a whole. Monsters fit your style of game-play, mapping looks crude but I'm sure you can make it better if you do a remake of Forgotten Eclipse"
