@res1fwfu: Um, did you enabled the switch? (default id 1 in the settings).

Looks pretty nice, and would probably work great for a one-party game or an active battle system.

Hi Nicke,

Thanks for the script. I've been trying it out and the name and health/magic bars don't update unless I go into the menu and then back to the map scene. I put an event that drains the character's HP to see if the bar updated as the HP were lost, and I was hoping you would be able to help me out with it. Thanks again.

Hmm, I should have implemented that. Let me check and if not I can patch it for you asap.

Thank you very much for the fast response. It would be very helpful. I use an event that changes the party leader from the map scene, and I am working on an evented action battle system that takes away hp from the map scene as well.

EDIT: Ideally I would be able to update/refresh the hud using a script call in an event rather than having the script constantly check for changes from the map scene.

Thanks for looking into it. The hp bar now moves as the hp is lost on the map, but if I change the party leader through an event on the map ( as opposed to doing it from the menu) it doesn't update the leader's name or switch to the new hp/mp bars. I still have to go into the menu and out for that to update.

How are you changing party leader using events? As I recall you cannot do that in events?

I am using a script that allows me to change the leader with a key press. If there were a script call that could be added to this script to refresh/update the hud from within an event, it would still allow for it to be lag free because I could call it from that key press event.

EDIT: I think I figured it out.

Create an event, add a new event command called "Control Switches", select id 1 (Default switch id in the script). Set that to ON and the HUD is displayed when the event is triggered.

Is it possible to have the Health and Mana show up and disappear separately?  I ask since I want my character's health actively displayed only when they have damage, and the Mana to only show when it's in use.  In my game Mana is actually Battery life so I only want to show the mana on screen when the flashlight is on.

This still causes lag, 100% of the time it is on.

It doesn't lag for me.

I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
Gamedev for relaxing? yes or no?
I've been having a rough couple of months and as such let down some friends of mine in the RPG Maker community. I still need time to get back to my normal self, but it's nice to be back, to read articles, and to design again (albeit at a slow pace). Hope to give updates on Kid Crescent soon.
Friendly reminder that you don't have to be able to do absolutely everything. It's okay to scale back features or assets if things are too much - especially if you're the only one working on the game! And you can always add things in later. <3
