Very useful.

Especially for plugins that require a heap of text like Yanfly's Action Sequences and your own Mix Action plugin.

Exactly! Hey, Victor, does it work with others plugins or just your own?

Because if working with every plugin, you really hit the spot with this, since the note box can become full off notetags.

Also, it allows me to call multiple .txt for the same note box?

The plugin rewrite the content of the note when it's loaded for the first time, so it should work with most, if not with all, plugins. It's a matter of testing the plugins but i suppose there will be no issue.

Yes, you can call multiple files on the same notebox. (I did it on the sample video for the Mix Actions).

I see 2 downsides with this:

- (minor) each note tag is stored in its own file, which might not be what you want. Not really an issue, but i thought i mention it.

- (major) each file is loaded every time it's needed. So, if you are referencing the same file from 20 items, it will be requested 20 times. On browser games, this can potentially take quite some time.

My own Note Files plugin works a bit different (i'd say it's generally worse, due to overwriting extractMetaData), but it does cache loaded files, so it should be faster. You might take a look at it (and i will probably rewrite it some time, to be more efficient and have better compatibility).

I will take a look on your plugin. 

I tried to come with something to cache the loaded files but didn't figure a efficient way of doing so.

More useful than your body (of text) has room for...

The Ace attorney series are so great games... But at the same time such a travesty.
