    I've been waiting for this one for a long while! And this looks even better than the original! :D


    Good job with your plugins as always! :)


    Out of curiosity: Do you think this is compatible with Tsukihime Hidden and Disabled Choice Conditions?

    This is SO pretty, and it seems to work with Hime's disabled choice plugin too, so that's great :p


    Just wondering if there would be any way to visually show disabled choices. I edited the VNButtons.png to include a grey background to indicate a disabled choice, but I don't think there's currently a way to change the background automatically, is there? I ask because most of my disabled choices are due to variable / switch differences, e.g. If relationship is too low, can't do choice x. So the grey-ed backgrounds would change based on the variables changing.


    Another thing is that it overlaps with the message name window, but I'll probably just go back and delete the name windows before each choice so that doesn't happen. I mean, it's a lot of work but I really like your choice windows!


    I don't know if I make sense, but anyway, tl;dr, I'm really loving how much prettier this looks over the default choice windows, so thank you!


    Edit:



    Both of them work for me ^_^

    Ahh, I did not think of name boxes or anything. An option to move the choices away from that is a good idea - adding to my to-do list.


    As for the disabled choices changing the background - link me the plugin you are using to disable them and I'll check that out when I have time, too :)



    Best way to know is give it a try, then lemme know if not and I can check it out

    That would be really cool, thank you!






    That's the Disabled choice plugin, and there's a link in the first post to the other choice-related Plugins (including the ones that Ilan14 mentioned) like large choices, conditional choices etc too.


    Thank you so much for looking into it! Really appreciated :D

    Updated to v.1.1 - added setting to control gap between message box and choices.


    Added setting to choose button that will display when a choice is disabled - this has only been tested with Hime's Disabled Choice Conditions plugin :)


    Lemme know if any issues.

    I'm so excited! I've been refreshing this page like every hour since your last update xD


    I just added v1.1 to my project and both the disabled choice and message gap features work great! Thank you so much for the update.


    Something minor I was thinking of pointing out is that if a user also has Hime's Hidden Choice plugin (where choices are hidden based on conditions), the centring of the text seems to be off. Here's an example of the off-center, and here is the same event when the choice isn't hidden (the condition is met). 


    I dunno if you're going to look into it but either way, THANK YOU so much for the update. My friends who're helping me test my WIP all commented about how much better the choice windows look now :D

    I'll look into why that happens with hidden choice plugin at a later date :)

    This update is really great, Galv! :D


    Oh, and by the way, the issue that Versalia mentioned before also applies if you're using Tsukihime's Conditional Choice Text Plugin.

    Oh? I didn't see it happen while coding the update. Can you please try changing their positions in the plugin list?

    I put your plugin above his plugin, I disabled the Disabled and Hidden Choice Condition plugins, and the same thing still happens.

    Hmm, I have both of Hime's plugins under my plugin and everything is working fine - I don't have text alignment issues.


    Please try what you are doing in a new project or copy/paste the lines of text in your choices so I can try and replicate.

    I looked more, and it seems that with the Conditional Choice Text, the centering of the text fails if I change the text of the choice using a script call. Otherwise, it's fine. But the Hidden Choice Conditions plugin still unaligns text when used normally.

    As for changing choice text using script call - what script call are you using and are you using a plugin to do that?

    Since Ilan didn't reply I thought I'd give it a shot :)


    Made a new project with no plugins other than Galv Visual Novel Choices and Hime's Hidden Choice plugins, and the error still occurs. 


    Here's a screenshot of the off-center in game. 


    Here's the simple event window. (The plugin command is hide_choice x, from Hime's Hidden Choice)


    I also noticed that with the plugin command, the color change doesn't work. (I had set 'nothing' to be red with \b[4].)


    Without the plugin command, the color and the centering is fine.


    I don't know if it helps but let me know if there's any other information that might! ^_^


    Edit: I don't use conditional choice so I didn't add my experience with that, sorry, but if you want me to I'll get it and try the same thing!

    Updated to version 1.2


    Fixed alignment when using color codes. Is now compatible with Hime's choice plugins.
