you should also note that it is in the legal english version only which means we only get a months peace before we get stormed by idiot noobs again.

First read the code of the basic Scene_Menu. Then go over to more complex codes, learn how they work, what they do and how they do it. No real tutes are actually needed here.

Dubealex's tutorials seems to involve window management, so you could also read them.

No problems.
If you still have problems I suggest you make a topic in either Scripts or Troubleshooting depending on the problem you have. (Possible also Tutorials)

I don't really know any tips you need to know before reading the tutorials.

I read through the tutorials and part of the default script, but there are a few things I don't understand. what are the functions of the attr_ codes, and what does self. mean?

I'm getting anoying, but I'd like to know what the @ in code means as well. Like in this method from Game_Variables:

  def initialize
    @pdata = []
  end

1. An @ before the variable's name means it's a class variable. An example would be an actor's name. The Game_Actor class represents the actor and the class variable @name is a string with his name.

2. attr_reader, attr_writer and attr_accessor are just what they are saying.
- attr_reader lets you read a class variable from "outside"
- attr_writer lets you write (that means change) a variable from "oustide"
- attr_accessor does like the two above together: read and write

3. the self. is actually accessing the class from "within" like it would be from the "outside". If you try self.name within the Game_Actor class, but there is no defined attr_reader :name or attr_accessor :name, it will give you the "Undefined method 'name' for class 'Game_Actor'"

Hope that helps. :)

EDIT:

BTW, the attr_reader is often used instead of an attr_accessor like for example he actor's HP. Then something called "encapsulation" is done instead and instead of just "writing" the actor's HP the given value for the actor's new current HP is first processed little bit, so the HP won't exceed the max HP and won't go lower than 0. Check out def hp=(hp) in the Game_Actor class to see what I mean. :)

Only RPG's RGSS tutorials worked for me, and they didn't help at all, I already knew that stuff! Is there a reason i can't read the others? Any way i'm gona just go through the default scripts and figure them out in the mean time. :)

Creation Asylum changed servers. This has been fixed.

The links to Astro's tutorials doesn't seem to work. (Not the 6 links nor the mirror)
I do not know of them being hosted elsewhere.
I am keeping the links should they come back up.
If you know a place where they are hosted please let me know.

Hey all.

It has been a long time since the last update and I know there must have been written some new tutorials.
I am requesting links to new tuts.
I'll hug everyone one of you who comes with a link.
Places where registration or similar is not required are prefered

I understood 1%. YAY! I understood the alphabet thing and I think that's it... I got lost at "newline." XD That's pretty complex looking... I've seen you use it before, Zeriab. It was for the SLOLS thing and how to put it as an actual loading screen thing. Yeah.

I didn't use any regular expressions in my SLOLS...
It seems even Tsu have troubles with Regular Expression. I expect the reason rather being his laziness than him being unable to understand my tut XD

For it is the reason most people decide not to learn RGSS.

I believe you mean Thread.
You should take care when playing around with threads.
The subject of Regular Expressions are really easy compared to the subject of Threads.
Using lots of threads in your program is an easy way to get hard-to-debug errors that can be hard to replicate as well.
I might do a tut about then when the stop bothering me as much as the do now -_-

Anyway. Anymore tuts?

Umm, you don't need to download anything. The Script Editor is in RMXP. F11 will bring it up. I don't think you're ready to start scripting though if you don't even know how to get in to the Script Editor.
