Introduction

Sometimes you may want to customize your windows a little. It can often be the case that you want to change the colors of the texts, add icons, or even variable values.
With this plugin, you can easily customize your texts in the windows using escape codes as in the message box!

Features

• Use escape codes in any window!

How to use

You can use Auto mode on plugin parameters, and all text will be converted automatically.

If you set to Manual mode, you have to choose a tag of your choice in the plugin parameters.

Then, just type the tag as the first letter in any text.

Example:
-Actor name
§\c[3]Harold

*NOTE¹: Not all codes can work outside the message box, such as waiting for frames or opening the gold window.

*NOTE²: Using escape codes in centralized texts, in horizontal windows (like the item category) ends up decentralizing them. I don't know how to fix this(without overwriting a lot of the default code), I made a few attempts and you can try to enable it in the plugin parameters. But I can't guarantee that someday I'll make a repair that works wonderfully.
If you want to keep text-centered, try to use spaces for now, or leave them for good.

*NOTE³: There are some windows that I do not add the global text functionality because it messes with the text.
Window_Shop, Window_ItemList, Window_NumberInput, Window_SkillList.

I'm sorry @Eliaquim, I forgot to say that I used the MV version of the plugin (Eli_SuperText) in RPG Maker MV 1.6.2

Now the quantity numbers of items are displayed correctly:

But now some windows are messed up like the Options menu and other windows of other plugins.
For example, without any other plugin installed but only your Global Text plugin, in the Options menu the texts are not aligned anymore.
Here's the Options menu without your Global Text Plugin:

And here's the Options menu with your Global Text Plugin:

And as an example of another plugin, I'm using Character Creator EX plugin by SumRndmDde.

Yeah, that probably will happen on most custom windows if you use the auto mode parameter. I can try to add a plugin parameter later for you to choose what windows will not use the global feature.

That's why I put an alert on the plugin help file:

*NOTE²: Using escape codes in centralized texts, in horizontal windows
(like the item category) ends up decentralizing them. I don't know how to
fix this(without overwriting a lot of the default code).
*NOTE³: There are some windows that I do not add the global text
functionality because it messes with the text.
Window_Shop, Window_ItemList, Window_NumberInput, Window_SkillList.
Now it seems that I will have to add the Window_Options too.
To avoid that is better if you use the manual mode.

Oh, thanks! I didn't know that! Using the manual-mode fixes the problem of custom windows.

I'm having a similar problem with your other plugin Escape Codes for MV. Here I tried to explain the other issue: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...tabase-using-escape-codes.126416/post-1179152

Hi!
God, I was taking a look at the default rm code... and it seems they choose to draw the text a little different than it is drawn on the window. At least that is what I realize taking a quick look. I will try to look deeper into it and see what I can do.

I manage to found what the problem is but didn't have the time to think and implement a solution yet. But when I do, I will put it here ^^

big image so i posted it as a spoiler
Just a reminder to back your projects up. Do it now! :yamero:
If there was an award for best game dev procrastination, I'd say 'meh, I'll pick it up tomorrow' >_>
Honestly though, I've been staring at the same half-made map for a while now haha! Ahhh, I'm so tired of mapping!
Time to add the support for import/export default RMXP maps. Maybe there will be customized tileset support later. In theory, I can reimplement the entire RMXP inside this RMXP-made game to make more RMXP games. :kaojoy:RMXPFORMATSUPPORT.jpg
Gonna make a story driven game someday in RPG Maker about this diseased character in my head. Will keep you posted, although I was warned by the authorities that posting too much would be considered 'spamming' so I WON'T SPAM. It'll be before I go in anyways. It's gonna be messed up but it won't be explicitly pornographic so don't worry, I'll give all the content warnings. :barf::barf::barf:
