Name: Monster Book

Version: 1.1

Author: Mr. Trivel

Created: 2015-11-04

 

What does it do?

Adds a Monster Book to the game which can be accessed through Plugin Command or Menu.

Monster Book records and holds info of all enemies you killed what loot you gained from them.

*Note: Suited for 1280x720 and higher resolutions,.

Pick and choose which panel shows what. More panels in the future. Open for suggestions.

 

Screenshots:








 

How to use?

Set up the parameters in Plugin Manager and you're pretty much set to go.

All plugin commands listed in Help in Plugin Manager.

 

Use <b_hidden> in enemy note field when you don't want it to show up in the Monster Book.

You can use any amount of <attack: X> (X being Skill ID) to show Attacks of the Enemy in Monster Book.

You can use <desc:TXT> to show description of the enemy in Monster Book. Make sure there's no space between colon and text. Else the first word will start off aligned. You can also have it multiline.

E.g.

<desc:Line1

Line2>

 


Plugin: <Link: Github>

How to download Script. Click the link above, there will be a button named Raw, press Right Click -> Save As.

 

Credit and Thanks:

Marnick de Grave for the layout.

 

Plans for future:

Compatibility with Steal script to make a panel that shows items to be stolen.

More panels - description in Top panel instead of bottom. Attacks in bottom panel.

Open for more ideas.

 


Legal:

Free for non-commercial games.

For commercial use contact me.

Hi! Love this monster book, it's absolutely essential for monster hunter themed games. However, the only problem I have with it is that it requires me to use at least a 720 resolution, which makes a lot of other things in the game... weird. For example, the menu screen itself looks awkward with the way the bars are stretched from side to side, and now entering text is a bit of a problem because of not knowing exactly when the line breaks. If I had one request, it's to make this compatible with the default resolution, at least the default used in Yanfly's core engine. Would absolutely love to use this, considering this is much better (in my opinion) than the Enemy Book plugin, but the resolution thing holds it back for me.

Very nice Monster Book, beatiful layout.

Suggestions:

- Would it be possible to add a description for the skills? That will be specially helpful in hard games, so you can counter their abilities more easily

- Don't list monsters you haven't seen, or only up to the ID you revealed. Example: You saw the enemie "Awesome Bat", who has the "Enemie ID" 12, so the book shows only enemies with the ID 1-12, either as ????? if unrevealed, or their name, if revealed. That way, the player isn´t overwhelmed by 200 entrys in the book.

I LOVE this! My favorite monster book plugin so far. <3

Can you add an option in the plugin manager to change the size of font in "enemy description?" I have a feeling most players would want a smaller option for most descriptions.

One small problem...

If you have a lot of elements, they fill the entire page and break the alignment... ;)

You may want to add a scroll... No telling how many elements people will have in their builds.

(edit)

Or simply allow the user to define which element are shown... A combination would be best though. I have several elements that are invisible, used to mimic base effects like Recovery and Pharma enhancements. No reason for them to be included in the Monster Book.

I'll see about it in the future.

Can you put the default values for all the plugin manager settings we can change in the description of each setting, please? Like for example, put "default: 28" for the font size of the description, please~

This and some general font options for the sections if possible. Some fonts tend to make the text pretty big so you need a smaller font size to compensate. I'm really liking the look and style of this bestiary but I need the font options to make it presentable. Good job on it so far though!

Great and simple solutions. Well done. ;)

Might I suggest the ability to display State rates? Possibly with the same options of show and hide? Maybe by state ID?

Thanks for your time.

This looks awesome, but with it being only "Free for non-commercial games." That makes it unusable to many, including me. :(   I wish more people would allow us to use their plug-ins so we can actually make a cool game and then "IF" we decide to sell it later on, we can. But with "Free for non-commercial games" being a common practice, it sure makes our games very limited. We can either make an awesome game that we can never sell or make a basic game that we can sell... :(

oh well, good job anyways

Is it possible to do categories of monsters for sorting? So for example you could customize the menu to pick from "Fire Monsters" vs "Water" and then show the monsters in the category? Thanks!

Great plugins easy to install and get to work. But can you do something about it with a resolution of 1000 x 740 ??

The text is just a bit too much compress it?

If I could just change the size of the Image of the Monster and under it the list of enemy name a bit less large it must fit inside 1000 wide.

thank you in advance for your great work! :D

No update from the Master Creator? :(

Hello.

Is it possible to have a menu background call for this plugin? 
I'm using Moghunter's Menu Background. All the other plugins seem to have it compatible/integrated.


Thank you.

Sorry for reviving this thread, but I was wondering, if this plugin is free in both commercial and non-commercial use? I notice on your main site, you said all plugins are free for commercial >.> but i don't see this plugin in your site and its description isnt updated.... Just wondering sorry again!

I encountered a problem where the monster listings where a little off (I had some enemies hidden from the book, so that might of caused it). I fixed it by moving the refresh in these lines:
Code:
    Window_MonsterList.prototype.initialize = function(x, y, w, h) {
        this.hiddenEnemies = [];
        Window_Selectable.prototype.initialize.call(this, x, y, w, h);
        this.select(0);
        this.refresh();
        for (var i = 1; i < $dataEnemies.length-1; i++)
        {
            if ($dataEnemies[i].meta.b_hidden) this.hiddenEnemies.push(i);
        }
    };
to this:
Code:
    Window_MonsterList.prototype.initialize = function(x, y, w, h) {
        this.hiddenEnemies = [];
        Window_Selectable.prototype.initialize.call(this, x, y, w, h);
        this.select(0);
        for (var i = 1; i < $dataEnemies.length-1; i++)
        {
            if ($dataEnemies[i].meta.b_hidden) this.hiddenEnemies.push(i);
        }
        this.refresh();
    };
