ABOUT:
Looking for a super simple (single page) player name input with an actual on-screen menu backspace button ( I noticed a few posts where people were interested in this and I thought, why not?! ;P ) Whether you want a simpler name input menu or you don't want the clutter of the 2nd page or perhaps you have a font that doesn't support all of the extra characters (which was my reason!) or you just want that darn backspace button on there (for ease in touchscreen games) this plugin is for you! (I'm not sure if this exists somewhere, but I couldn't seem to find it anywhere... Sorry!)

DOWNLOAD:
SimpleNameInputMenu.js

FEATURES:
  • Super simple, single page name input menu
  • Perfect for 8-bit style or GB style (SEE PREVIEW BELOW)
  • BACKSPACE BUTTON
PREVIEW:
SimpleNameInputMenu_Pecos_GB_PREVIEW.gif

HOW TO USE:
  • Add the plugin to your game and turn ON!
  • You can change the term for 'BACK' by opening the .js file and just change it to whatever you'd like such as even an arrow i.e. '←' (just be sure keep it inside the quotes)
  • You can also change any of the characters as well, just edit the .js plugin file (open with notepad or similar software) and change it to whatever you want! (again just be sure keep it inside the quotes ' ' )

DEPENDENCIES:
NONE (whoo!)

BUGS/UPDATES:
  • None that I know at the moment, it's probably a little messy (as far as code goes) it might have some issues with other name input menu plugins, I haven't quite tested it yet! Just let me know below (if you run into issues!)
  • The code is probably waaay longer than it needs to be! SORRY :(
  • Removed PgUp/PgDn keyboard feature (thanks Ace of Spades for pointing that out!)

TERMS OF USE/CREDIT:
Do whatever you please! Commercial or non-commercial. Use and abuse! No credit required (honestly, I prefer being a ghost and going uncredited :0 lol)

This looks perfect for what I'm trying to do, but I have a very, very stupid question!

My game is meant to be touch-screen navigable only, so I've disabled all the menus and am rerouting their functionality through a series of common events triggered by pictures.

Is there a way for me to call up this name input screen through an event? =)

Do a script call (it's 3rd page of the event commands bottom right)
And put this:

SceneManager.push(Scene_Name);
SceneManager.prepareNextScene(1, 8);


(The numbers above are 1 = Actors ID and the 8 = Number of characters, so you could change them based on which character you want to change but just be sure you have the correct actor id, since it's not based on current players in your party but the actual list of Actors in the editor) I hope that helps

Thank you!

Turns out it...also modifies the default name input UI, too, hahahaha.

Excellent, love it, thank you!

Just a heads up, it's still possible to change the Name Input pages using the Page Up/Page Down input keys. I think the plugin would function better if you removed that functionality as well.

Is there a way to remove all the symbols/numbers and therefore reduce the columns so it isnt just empty slots?
