It would be really helpful to be able to show the item's description while hovering over a key item in the 'Select Item' effect. It looks like someone did this with a single line of code in Ace if it helps as a reference:

https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/select-key-item-with-item-descriptions.34521/

The description would appear in a separate window below the 'select item' dialogue, or in a 'show message' at the bottom of the screen.

If anyone has the time to look at this that would be amazing, it would be very helpful for my IGMC entry. Thanks for reading!

Just to be safe - what kind of a description do you mean? The item description defined in the editor or some kind of a custom field for a completely custom description? Because you can achieve a custom description box with Yanfly's item core :)

As you can see, up there there is a description box... The default one :D And down there I have a little story describing that item :D

@Poryg: I might well check that plugin out shortly... thanks!

@Ossra: I really appreciate that, it works perfectly! Ideally for my game the windows would appear the other way round, so the description is below the select window. Would that be an easy tweak? Thank you so much again :D

@Geoff Moore Sure! Just change line 8 ~ 10 :

Code:
    if (this._helpWindow) {
      this._helpWindow.y = this.y + this.height;
    }

welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
some test stuff. Empty for now. My other project (this project) needs more attention. The lagging really kicks up when I try to capture gameplay. ✨

When your side job becomes more interesting than your dayjob and you think "do I quit again or finally actually do the same thing for more than five consecutive years..." I don't think I'll ever be able to say that though, I just cannot stick with one thing like you're 'supposed to'.
Does the word "research" imply that you're searching for something that had been found before?
