    @nums = Sprite.new(@viewport3)
    @nums.z = 9999
    @nums.x = 30
    @nums.y = 30

    @nums_bitmap = RPG::Cache.picture('nums.png')
    @nums_number_width = @nums_bitmap.width / 10
    @nums_max_digits = 6
    @nums_display = Bitmap.new(@nums_number_width * @nums_max_digits, @nums_bitmap.height)
    @nums.bitmap = @nums_display
    @nums_variable ||= 1

    @nums_display.fill_rect(0, 0, @nums_display.width, @nums_display.height, Color.new(0, 0, 0, 0))
    @nums_visible = false
    return if !$game_switches[@nums_visible_switch]

    if $game_variables[@nums_variable].to_i < 0
      $game_variables[@nums_variable] = 0
    end

    displayed = $game_variables[@nums_temp_variable].to_i
    actual = $game_variables[@nums_variable].to_i
    if actual > displayed
      $game_variables[@nums_temp_variable] += 1
    elsif actual < displayed
      $game_variables[@nums_temp_variable] -= 1
    else
      return unless $game_switches[@nums_visible_switch]
    end

    number = displayed.to_s
    number.split('').each_with_index do |chr, idx|
      digit = chr.to_i
      src_rect = Rect.new(@nums_number_width * digit, 0, @nums_number_width, @nums_display.height)
      @nums_display.blt(idx * @nums_number_width, 0, @nums_bitmap, src_rect)

FAQ

Q
: The demo won't open, how to open it?

A: You need RPG Maker XP

Q: Who should i credit?

A: Me, astrobunny.

Q: Can I use my own number image?

A: Yes! You have to make it so all the numbers occupy the same sized rectangle in the image. Basically, divide your image into 10 equally spaced parts, and place each of your numbers in each part. You should also make your background transparent in your PNG. You must also name it nums.png

Have a look at these images I made for you that can also be used! Use the following images as a reference. Feel free to use them or modify them to your liking!

nums.png
nums_2.png
nums_3.png

Q: How do I change where the number is positioned?

A: Look at the [first part of the code] and then find @nums.x = 30 and @nums.y = 30, change these numbers. @nums.x is the number of pixels away from the left of the window and @nums.y is the number of pixels down from the top of the window of the leftmost number.

Q: How many digits maximum?

A: Look at the [first part of the code] and find @nums_max_digits = 6. You can change this number to any number of digits you wish.

Besides my Might and Magic inspired project, I have always wanted to make a Fire Emblem-like game. Time is the culprit... Between life, composing music packs, and working on a game can it be done!? The tactical plugins for MV work quite well based on what I have tested.
Yaaay! My second public script is out and approved! A VX Ace Final Fantasy IX styled Throw Script!

I look forward to all the constructive feedback I get but most importantly I hope everyone who ends up using it enjoys!

Yaaaay! Making scripts is fun lol. :D
When you're lost out therrrrre and you're alllll alone, ahwahwah waitin, to carry you hooooommmme, uhhheverywhere you look! (someone hit me with those backing vocals)

Day 2 of teaching MV, student can move cat across the map.
