Is there a CTRL-Key or combination that immediately marks where the event cursor is as the starting place of the player ?There are scripts to skip the title screen and go straight into the game. That cuts down a lot of dev time, but the event cursor is interesting.
Actually I forgot to mention that this goes hand-in-hand with a new script command, INTERRUPT, which will freeze the game right there and then and enter the calculator. Or, provided you are not playing a compiled game, you can press CTRL-B or some key equivalent to STOP the game right there.There is nothing preventing a developer from writing a tool that will do this.
It's just whether someone wants to do it or not, keeping in mind that they will likely get nothing out of it beyond intellectual stimulation.
From here you enter the RM calculator and you can either return back to playing the game (with the ability to have previously changed values entered from the RM calculator/variable manager additionally), hp("jackie")=1000 or exit from here back to the editor.
I am looking at the Move Route in RMVXA-Trial and not seeing a command equivalent for Quad ?No, I don't think they should ever do that in a message box. It's a message box: its purpose is to create messages and control messages.
Use a move route.
Looking at VX's message box, I can see that you are correct, it wouldn't look right to put commands in there. But I can see immediately that the Preview window should not be forced to close in order to add text but the preview pane could be updated automatically, viewed above as text is added to the input field below that.
Suggest that when you type out a \(command), like "i" for icon, that after you type the "[" the cursor changes to show "?" that if you press SPACEBAR or ENTER here, a new window will pop up so you can select that particular icon visually from a table, using either the mouse or arrow keys followed by the ENTER key.
Also ability to stack commands in the VX Message Box so this, \i[v] would yield correct results.
BTW, I appreciate your feedback as I am just learning the VX system ! Please review with your opinions on the 3 prior to this !
