Hey guys.

I'm new to RPG Maker XP and am making a short, simple game for a school project. The point of the game is to convey  information, so it doesn't exactly play out like a legit video game.

I figured out how to have NPCs speak and then have dialogue options to reply, but the boxes only allow for a few characters. I need to have fairly complete sentences as options, is there any way to expand the character limit?

I know, I'm pretty much as n00by as n00b can be, but I would REALLY appreciate any insight. Thanks,

Janderse

I've moved this thread to XP Support (Tutorials is for tutorials, not for requesting help). Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.


Show Text allows you to enter 3 lines of text, each line as long as you can see in the text entry box. Are you using all 3 lines, or are you assuming you can only enter one line?


If 3 lines isn't enough for you, you would need to look for a script that makes it more flexible. CCOA's UMS, I know, will allow you to place several Show Text commands, each with 3 lines, but to enter a code that would actually display them all at the same time. Modern Algebra also has a script for RMXP text, but I've never looked at it, so don't know if it's suitable for your needs or not. But at least that's two things for you to check out, which gives you a starting point.

Who's a fan of firearms? The 5 on the bottom row (not including the green laser ones) I made pretty recently. I plan for most of these to be in my project.

I think I will want portraits and battle sprites to be 2D and stick to pixel art for overworld not 100%sure but pretty sure its easier to make pixel art for overworld sprites, events and maps and stuff.
