Hello! I'd like some help please c:
I'm trying to create an Equip Skill that's exclusive to a class, For that, I need to call a common event that opens Scene_Equip to the corresponding actor and let that actor equip new armor

The big problem with this is that you can simply switch to another actor in equip menu and essentially equip different pieces for everyone, which isn't what I'm aiming for

I can currently switch actors by pressing Q/W or PageUp/PageDown and I'm looking to lock that function using an in-game switch

Maybe by putting a switch into rmmz_scene.js, but I'm not a good programmer and I have no idea what to write where.

I hope I made sense and if possible I'd like help over this c:
I can clarify stuff if needed of course.

Make a Plugin and add this:

Code:
(function() {
    const lockActorInMenusSwitchID = 11
 
    const alias1 = Scene_MenuBase.prototype.nextActor
    const alias2 = Scene_MenuBase.prototype.previousActor
 
    Scene_MenuBase.prototype.nextActor = function() {
        if (!$gameSwitches.value(lockActorInMenusSwitchID))
            alias1.call(this)
    }

    Scene_MenuBase.prototype.previousActor = function() {
        if (!$gameSwitches.value(lockActorInMenusSwitchID))
            alias2.call(this)
    }
})();

Change the 11 to a Switch Number you want to use. When the Switch is one, the Player cannot swap Characters in any Menu. Tell me if it works for you.

another option is to give all other actors a state that seals all their equip slots before opening the scene, and remove that state after.

that way the engine will still allow the player to switch actor, but he won't be able to change any equipment on the other actors.
and no plugin needed for that, just a state with a lot of seal equip traits.

@Aerosys I think you're missing a ) on each of your if conditions. [Edit: fixed!] Looks good otherwise!

After testing those ways that worked well, it turns out that opening Scene_Equip during battle seems to break as the fight completely restarts.
Maybe I will try some other ways unless there's a way to cache the battle before opening Scene_Equip.

you should have mentioned that you wanted to use equip during battles in your original post. all scenes are equal, so the problem is that opening the regular equip scene ends the battlescene.

however there have been "battle-equip" scripts or plugins in the past, especially written to allow changes to equipment during battle. You might try to look for one of them.

@Andar I really didn't know that it was important. MZ comes with ChangeEquipOnBattleMZ.js, so I might look into turning an actor command into a skill. I think the original way of blocking actor switching should still work in that small scene

EDIT: turns out it's not compatible with Visustella, rip

then check if visustella has an alternative to battleequip. I know yanfly wrote one for Ace, he should have made one for MV and visustella was formed to transfer yanfly's MV plugins.

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
