Hello all,

I am currently looking for a way to name an item after an Actor. The idea is that there are several items that belong to a certain actor, such as "A's Necklace" or "B's sword" and I want their name to reflect that. At the same time, I want the player to be able to rename actors in the game.

I tried naming the item with \N[x], but to no avail - the item is then simply called "\N[x]" in the game.

Would anyone have any tips or know of any plugins that might help? I tried reading my way through Yanfly's Item Core, but I am not sure this is what I am looking for...

Thanks in advance!

SBB

The database is static by default, so any renaming of items requires a plugin that changes the way the database is handled.

@stopbeingbored, you need to use something like this:

\*\n[1]\n's Axe will give you Harold's Axe.

Hi @fizzly please could you elaborate? If I enter that value into the item name, I still end up with an item named just that string of letters and dashes. If this works, it would make my day.

@Andar I was worried about that. You wouldn't know of a plugin like that if fizzly's suggestion does not work, please?

Thanks

@fizzly 's suggestion will most likely not work because that text code is not a default text code, he added a plugin to get that option added.
So you should ask him which plugin he uses for that (most probably one of the message system plugins)

@stopbeingbored Sorry, I though it's default text code, but I was wrong. It comes with script "GlobalTextCodes" by modern algebra.

Please do not buy games from g2a.com. The sellers have total power over you. The website has many scam sellers. It looks cheap, but the key code didn't work.

I know someday I'll start working on this...

I'm so happy that I got Steam achievements to work in my game, thanks in large part to the posts by other RPG Maker devs on this issue!
