RPG Maker MV Dependency Grapher Tool 1.0.1
This program generates a dependency graph of all the map transfers in your project. This program is Windows-only.
- Generates dependency graph in PNG format
- Integrates directly in the editor as a tool
To install the tool, download the release from GitHub, and unzip the package into RPG Maker MV's "tool" folder (you may have to create the folder if it doesn't exist). If you are using the Steam version and have RPG Maker installed in the default Steam library location, the tool should be automatically recognized when you go to "Tools -> RPG Maker MV Tools" when you have a project open in the editor. If not, open the tools window, click "Select Path...", find and double click the "tool" folder, then click "Select Folder". Once the tool appears in the list, select it, click "Add", and click "OK".
To run the tool, simply select "Generate Dependency Graph" from the Tools menu or click on its icon on the toolbar. The program will pop up a window to show you processing progress, and automatically open the graph image when it's finished. If you want to see the generated files for yourself, they're in your project folder, named "dependency.gv" for the GraphViz file and "dependency.png" for the rendered image.
This is the graph generated for the project loaded at the beginning of tutorial step 19:

Source code is available on GitHub. GraphViz distribution used can be found here.
This was based on some analysis code I wrote when trying to convert RPG Maker MV data to a different engine's format. I've got lots more crazy stuff from that project.
