Hello all RPG Makers out there!

One day Drakkonis came up with an idea that MV should need plugin command UI similar to MZ! AND NOW IT DOES!

Please note that this tool is made for RETRO (v0.10 and above) link to thread: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/retro-mz-plugins-on-mv.135715/

Currently RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI is only available for Windows (welcome to branch out my GitHub repo for Mac version).

MZ has possibility to pass REALLY complex structs and arrays as plugin command parameter. This tool will format all MZ plugin commands in RETRO format that are instantly usable in MV!

Just an example that would be not so nice to write: Plugin_Name/Command_Name "My Event" {"Type":"1","Radius":"300","Color":"#ffea00ff","OffsetX":"0", ... ,"Degrees":"360","Angle":"0","Rotation":"0","StartAt":"0.000"}

Then just use copied command in MV normally:

Structs, arrays, select, combo, files, numbers, etc.. are supported.

RPCUI_SELECT.png

Usage of this tool

You may copy RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI.exe to your project directory and it will auto-detect all MZ plugins that are using plugin commands!

OR you can use it as MV tool!
  1. Go to ..\Steam\steamapps\common\RPG Maker MV\tool
    Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RPG Maker MV\tool
  2. Create "RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI" folder
  3. Unzip "TOOL_INFO.zip" to created folder
  4. Copy RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI.exe to created folder
  5. Rename RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI.exe to WindowBuilder.exe
  6. Then you can add it in MV normally (Tools >> RPG Maker MV Tools)

Then you can quick start RETRO_Plugin_Command_UI anytime!

I am a complete fool. I went through the trouble of making a clone sprite and setting up a system to have the characters flash, when it turns out - I never noticed that the "._mainSprite" was the actual bitmap being used. I'm happy since that makes compatibility easier, but I also want to scream.
Synchronizing bust and sprite expressions! Plus using a phone behaviour :kaopride:

Long gif tho, let it load first :kaoswt2:
Wondering how to force a Save State in VNMaker with a name and how to call it with a scene event in order to double check if this Save State exists or not. Phew... Leaving breadcrumbs for chapter DLCs to pickup would be more than half the fight in order to finish this visual novel :LZSsad:
Making games is the only thing I'm good at. Real talk.
So, uh... where's the RPG Maker MZ update with the MV animation system? Is there a release date confirmed?
Also I'm kind of brave enough to admit this. I... I have a crush on Sephiroth.
Please don't call me anything offensive. I'm naturally crazy.
