I got tired of dropping out of what I was doing, opening the Plugin Manager, then a Plugin, browsing the help documentation, and finally drilling back down into what I was originally working on. And since I couldn't find any tool for that ... I created one.

NOTE: This tool is for Windows only. I have no means to develop utilities for other platforms.

It's designed to be used as an add on Tool for the RPG Maker app, but can be used stand-alone (it will ask for a RPG Maker project file when lunched outside of RPM Maker since it is required to determine the plugins path).

The tool shows all active plugins for the current project on the left; selecting one will display the corresponding help documentation on the right. If you Add/Remove/Activate/Deactivate any plugins after the tools is opened you will need to save the project in RPG Maker and then click the Refresh button in the tool to refresh the plugins list.

I've tried to account for all the most commonly used help text formatting used by plugin developers; but since there's no real standard, help text from some plugins may not render properly.

Also, it only pulls the "default" language help text from the plugin; any alternate languages text is filtered out. If I knew how RPG Maker was determining language (e.g. Windows Locale setting), I could add a language option. But I will only add it to my tool if I'm sure it matches how RPG Maker is doing it.

Download here: PluginHelpViewer.zip

--- Installation ---

To install it simply extract the archive directly into the "tool" folder in your RPG Maker MV install folder ...
e.g. %PROGRAMFILES (X86)%\Steam\steamapps\common\RPG Maker MV\tool . The archive contains the proper root folder so be sure to extract directly into the "tool" folder, NOT a subfolder under "tool" folder.

Then in RPG Maker, click Tools->/RPG Maker MV Tools ... to open the Tools Interface. Depending on where/how you installed RPG Maker it may or may not automatically show up.

If it does not show up in "Found Tools" then you'll need to click the "Select Path" button, browse to the "tool" folder, highlight the "PluginHelpViewer" folder that was extracted, and click "Select Folder". Once it's in the list select it and click "Add", then click "OK". This will add it the Tools menu and the Toolbar.

dude this is amazing! no more opening txt files and copy pasting!

one question, is there anyway to change the background of the plugin txt or the atleast the text color? at the moment the colors of the background and plugin text are too similar

EDIT: also not the biggest deal, but anyway for it to save the settings you had for the font, size, etc? seems i have to change it everytime?

still enjoying this btw, just thought id mention these :)

It seems that I have to change the order with which I make the fantasy games on my bucket list, because the intended title is used as a story element in the first two games in the line, and somebody else might take the title for their own game because the term uses real words. I can't risk going over the apparent three year limit for registering trademark ahead of time.
I am interested in collaborations so if you like my art, hit up my messages! :wub

Making good progress with the second chapter. :)

Still work in progress.

(Real life, it is chronically the fourth chapter that I am making.)

They spent their whole life to build that wall and the empire, an empire that enslaves them." :kaoswt2: I'm just going to turn it into a modern-day sad tale.
