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;
    }

The presentation pictures for FSM Castle Tiles are really bad, there is so much more content in this DLC than they show. Great DLC.^^
Anyone know/remember Mummy's Tomb / Crystals of Zong for C64? Trying to recreate it for One Map Challenge. Fun. And ... er ... challenging!


Listen.. I er... caught the live stream. :LZSwink:
The MZ first look stream was quite good. Looks like we get a lot of generator parts right off the bat this time around. Lots of cool clothes, helmets, facial marks, etc. Looking forward to playing around with it. :)
Any tips on how to share resources in here? Should I upload them in a image hosting site or Google Drive?
