So I've been looking around the forums for quite awhile. As I was looking around, I had began to notice that my Self Data Suite series of scripts had become something of a big deal. So much so that people had found the Suite in a very obscure folder in my Dropbox (For a period of time, I had my files moved into that particular folder for several reasons, none of it ego-driven) and they've also went and created mirrors for it. That's pretty crazy. So I've got to say thank you for your support, but I'm sorry for my shoddy support. I also have to thank Andar and Shaz for keeping the Self Data Suite alive by word of mouth in a lot of the support threads I've come across. They've inspired me to make this thread.


So here's the purpose of the thread: Currently, my support hasn't been very good in years due to me having taken a break from things a long time ago and never really getting back from that break since (I did make a return thread, but it didn't last). This thread will run like the Event System Support threads.


What is the Self Data Suite?


The Self Data Suite is a highly extensive series of scripts that allows developers to attach as many switches, variables, and metadata as they want onto just about everything. Actors, Classes, Skills, Items, Events, Common Events, Maps, etc.. The script is very open-ended, so whatever you want to do with them is entirely up to your imagination.


These series of scripts currently include:  Self Switches/Variables/Metadata for Common Events and their initial settings, Actors, Classes, Skills, Armors, Weapons, Items, Enemies, Troops, States, Tilesets, Maps, Game System, Game Temp, Initial Event Self Switches, and Event Self Variables and Metadata.


Where can I get the Self Data Suite?


RMVXA | RMVX | RMXP


Purpose


This thread is for troubleshooting Self Data Suite. Support ranging from simple to complex uses of Self Data Suite are allowed. This is not a thread to request a Self Data Suite powered script to be done for you. Unless the Maker you're looking for support for is provided, people will assume you're finding support for your preferred maker.


What if I found bugs?


Comment them on my profile page's wall.

I am one of those who got it from your dropbox.  It's good to see you around once more.

First of all, thank you for the fantastically useful script. I'm brand new to RPG Maker (at least, since I played around with it as a kid), and this script was perfect for my needs.

To clarify some of its uses, I do have a question (forgive my ignorance, I am a newb):

How can I (if it's possible) set an event page to require a self variable to have a certain value to activate, without using switches? (i.e. "a" == 1, go to event page 2)

If it's not possible, would that mean the alternative is an intense use of self switches?

If possible, I hope to see your reply soon. I am trying to use this script in an indie game competition (crediting you, of course), and it is almost the deadline (August 7th). Thank you in advance!

You cannot change the editor in any way, and that means that the event conditions can never check the self-data from this script.

You can use a regular variable for this, it just needs ordering the event page for increasing values (if page 2 activates on 4 or above and page 3 activates on 5 or above, page 2 will only be active at the exact value of 4).

so i have found out about this script not too long ago and from the looks of it, its a nice scripter's toolbox. aside from the obvious addition of nearly infinite variables and self-switches, what caught my eye is the metadata system. ive been looking for similar script mind you, and when i found this gem here it blew my mind. only problem is, i cant seem to get how to use this quite right. looking the interweb for tutorial leads me nowhere. so i egistered here so i can learn how to use this powerful script to its fullest. and not also that, i also want to belong to an RPG maker community again after the rpgmakervx.net's closure. so what im asking is how do i use the self-metadata to create internal data like in minecraft. what i want to do in turn is to cut out on exessive use of the database. see making a potion Lv.1 up to Lv.10 will consume 10 slots in your item database, but with metadata, you can use the same single slot to make infinite possible items. i know its a stretch but looking to how minecraft handles its metadata, you can tell that its a revolutionary advances in coding.

Do these scripts (Particularly the RMVXA one) still exist anywhere? The links no longer exist on dropbox

I thought it may have been worth a try. I'll try my best to create a script myself. Thank you

@macas1 A link to my dropbox. It will not be there long, as my dropbox is very full. Please post when you have grabbed it so that I can delete it.

I apologize for bringing this thread back up, but I am in dire need of something like this Self Data Suite and it is very hard to come by. I've spent the last couple of days trying to find a substitute, but I need to attach variables and various data to events and it seems like this suite will do exactly what I need. Does anyone possibly have a download mirror left for me? Thank you very much in advance.

@Paelous Here is a link to the Self Data Suite. It's in my dropbox and can only stay there for a short time as I need to free up space in it. 《Snip link removed》
Please post to say when you've downloaded it so that I can then delete it from my dropbox.

@Kes Thank you a billion times. I've downloaded it, you can delete it. Thank you!

Should anyone in the future run into the same situation and be looking for a download link, I've uploaded it to my webspace and hopefully, it's there to stay for good for the next couple of years: http://www.startale.at/selfdata.rar (~70kb)

Doing RPG Maker News for 24th October 2021

I'm not sure how to do this so I'll just ask here, Wheres a good place to post your game (for free) once its done?
I don't know what I'm doing :D
So got my hearing tested to see if it was the cause of my mishearing what people say. Test showed no problems but talked with the doctor about anxiety and ADHD causing hearing issues and she agreed and also added that some people hear things differently. With my anxiety cause I am in fight or flight I pay attention to all the sounds in the area so body knows when react. Can't pay attention to one source.
