So, my game uses name boxes in the messages (as lots of rpgs do), and when a character's name is revealed, i want their name to change from "???" to their actual name. However, the way i'm doing this currently is to have the name box abruptly switch from the question marks to the actual name, which would be confusing.

So basically i want an extension to the message core where in the name boxes, you could write "\n<???>" as usual, but when the name is revealed, you write "\n<???|Name>". And then, when that message is played, the name will change from ???, to the name specified. There could be multiple reveal animations specifiable in the plugin parameters like Pixelate, Fade, and more.

As another way you could use it, my game features a slime that is actually the blacksmith of the town, but transformed. In that case, if you want the name to change from Slime to Blacksmith, you could write "\n<Slime|Blacksmith>"

I hope this gets made! Sorry if this makes no sense, i'm terrible at explaining stuff.

I don't understand why the way you currently have it isn't good enough. Pretty much every RPG I've played that introduces someone as ??? simply has their name appear in the name box as soon as they give their name or are introduced by another character.

the basic way to start is to name your actor (enemy) use ?????
than use the change name of the actor from ??? to something else.
but to automate (even through params), you need to tell them WHEN
to activate, which is basicly the same as change name.

actor name is called ???
use scriptcall: $gameActors.actor(actorId).setName(n)

example: $gameActors.actor(3).setName(Peter)
now name is "Peter" from now on.

this is how most people probably do though.
if the example above does not work, use ("Peter") instead.

Sorry everyone. Covid rules made me a laptop potatoe and I would need more exercise and past 2nd invasion I am still fighting for space also here. So I am not enough often here and... well I answer even less to my e-mails. DC is saying a huge HI to everyone with her heavy wet purrings.

You all take care in here ^^
