Composite Characters/Visual Equipment
Version: 1.2b
Author: modern algebra
Date: December 5, 2009

Version History


  • <Version 1.2b> 12.05.2009 - Very small oversight fixed - if you have been experiencing lag with this script, it might be a good idea to get this new version. There is no functional difference however.
  • <Version 1.2> 05.29.2009 - Number of Changes, including an easy wrapper for changing base graphics for actors, as well as a away to set priority for charsets, thus allowing for greater customizability
  • <Version 1.0> 07.05.2008 - Original Release

Description


This script allows you to create character sets from multiple character sheets, layering them on top of each other. It also allows you to set character graphics to armors and weapons, and these character sets will be layered on top of the character, thus making it a Visual Equipment script as well.

Features

  • Easy configuration
  • Hundreds of unique characters can be made from a limited set of resources.
  • Allows you to set hue for character sheets, meaning each resource can have hundreds of distinct colours.
  • Allows any weapon or armor to have any number of character sets stacked onto the character upon equip.
  • Events and Actors can also be set up so that they are composed of multiple character sets
  • Can set a priority for graphics, thus allowing you to determine what graphics should be drawn first
  • Can change base graphics for the actor with script calls

Screenshots


All character sets seen composed of this one character sheet, with all resources taken from the character generator here: http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/tool/chibi/index1.html

#  Composite Characters / Visual Equipment
#  Version 1.2b
#  Author: modern algebra (rmrk.net)
#  Date: December 5, 2009
#  Original Release Date: July 5, 2008
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Instructions:
#
#    Place this script in between Materials and Main in the Script Editor
#
#    Basically, to work this script you need to do two things. 1) Setup your
#  actors default character sets - you will see a full set of instructions at
#  line xx. Now, to set a graphic for an armor or weapon, all you need to do
#  is place this code in the Notes box of the item:
#
#    \CG[<Name of Character Set>, <index in character set>, <hue>, <z>]
#
#  If you leave out index, it defaults to 0 and if you leave out hue, it also
#  defaults to 0. You can put more than one graphic to an armor or weapon and
#  they will stack by priority (z). Things with lower priority are drawn first.
#
#    Setting up an Event is similar - all you need to do is place a comment at
#  the very beginning of the event and put in the same code to generate a
#  composite character set for the event. Same rules apply, and remember, you
#  can stack character sets.
#
#  EXAMPLES:
#    \cg[Actor1, 2]        # Character Set = Actor1 : index = 2 : hue = 0 : z = 0
#    \CG[Evil]             # Character Set = Evil   : index = 0 : hue = 0 : z = 0
#    \cG[Actor2, 3, 50, 2] # Character Set = Actor2 : index = 3 : hue = 50 : z = 2
#
#    You can now remove and add graphics to the actor using the following codes
#  in a script call:
#
#   remove_graphic_from_actor (actor_id, index)
#   remove_graphic_from_actor (actor_id, graphic_name, graphic_index, graphic_hue)
#   add_graphic_to_actor (actor_id, graphic_name, graphic_index, graphic_hue, index)
#
#  where:
#    actor_id      : the ID of the actor whose graphic you are changing
#    index         : the index of the graphic in the actor's composite_character
#    graphic_name  : the name of the character set
#    graphic_index : the index of the character file in the set
#    graphic_hue   : the hue of the graphic
#
#    Also, the Change Actor Graphic event command now adds character sets to
#  the current set. You can clear an actor's character set with the code:
#
#    clear_character_graphic (actor_id)
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Compatibility:
#
#    Unfortunately, I did need to overwrite some methods for this script, and
#  as such there are likely to be compatibility problems. I know that my
#  Extra Movement Frames Script certainly will not work with this script, and
#  any script that tampers with the way a character set is drawn will also
#  likely encounter problems. Now, this is not to say that any script that
#  draws a character set will be incompatible - as long as that scripter uses
#  the draw_actor_graphic method of Window_Base it should work fine - it is
#  only scripts that change the way a character set is drawn that will cause
#  problems. Also, I tamper with the load_gamedata method of Window_SaveFile,
#  and so if another script overwrites that then there will again be
#  compatibility issues. If you find a script that seems to cause problems,
#  please post at the topic at rmrk.net and I will try my best to assist you.
#
#    Diedrupo's Caterpillar Script does not work immediately. A fix is posted
#  in this script's topic at rmrk.net.
#    Tankentai Sideview Battle System will not use composite character sprites
#  without a fix. That fix is also posted in this script's topic at rmrk.net

Spoiler for Set Event Graphic to an Actor:
This is a simple little edit that allows you to change an event's graphic to that of an actor with a script call.

#    Set Event to Actor Graphic
#      Addon for Composite Character Sets / Visual Equipment
#    Version: 1.0
#    Author: modern algebra (rmrk.net)
#    Date: June 1, 2010
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Instructions:
#    Paste this into its own slot in the Script Editor, below Materials but
#   somewhere above Main
#
#    To set an event to actor graphic, use this code in a Script call (third
#   tab of event commands)
#      $game_map.events[event_id].set_to_actor (actor_id)
#          event_id : the ID of the event whose graphic you are changing
#          actor_id : the ID of the actor whose graphic you want the event to
#            have.
#
#    Remember, the event will retain whatever event settings it had originally,
#   including original pose, so if you want the event to be standing still
#   instead of with one leg out, you have to set it up with some graphic prior
#   to changing it by script and choose the pose you want the actor graphic to
#   be in.

Known Compatibility Issues

Any scripts that play around with the way character sets are drawn will undoubtedly have some problems with this script. If you encounter any problems, please post the error and the script that is causing the problem and I will see if I can make them compatible.

Does not work with Dash Animation
Does not work with Extra Movement Frames

It ought to work with KGC Equip Extension

Spoiler for Composite Characters + Grid Inventory Compatibility Patch:
Equipment does not refresh upon exiting the Inventory, so this patch fixes that. Place it in its own section below the Grid Inventory script, but still above Main.

Code: [Select]

end

Does not work with Diedrupo's Caterpillar script, but the fix is easy:
Spoiler for Fix:
Go into the Caterpillar script and you will see the following code around line 88:

Code: [Select]
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Setup
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  def setup
    if @actor != nil     
      @character_name = $game_actors[@actor].character_name
      @character_index = $game_actors[@actor].character_index
    else
      @character_name = ""
      @character_index = 0
    end
    @opacity = 255
    @blend_type = 0
    @priority_type = 0
  end

replace it with:

Code: [Select]
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # * Setup
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  def setup
    if @actor != nil     
      @composite_character = $game_actors[@actor].composite_character
    else
      @character_name = ""
      @character_index = 0
      @composite_character = nil
    end
    @opacity = 255
    @blend_type = 0
    @priority_type = 0
  end

It does not work with Tankentai Sideview Battle System. Please see this post for a compatibility fix for Version 3.3a. It will not work with animated battlers, but should draw regular sprites accurately if you are using them in battle.

In Shopoholic, it will not draw the composite character in Window_Shop_Details.
Spoiler for Fix:
At line 210 in Window_Shop_Details, replace:

Code: [Select]
    bitmap = Cache.character(actor.character_name)

with

Code: [Select]
    bitmap = Cache.composite_character(actor.composite_character)

Thank you so much for the script. You're Awesome!!! With that done i'll begin making charsets for people to use. If i have another idea for enhancing VX i'll be sure you make a request via this site.  :D   Also... your script is doubly appreciated with me because i'm pondering the idea of learning RGSS2 scripting... (my native language is C++)... looking forward to examining the code.

This Script is amazing, I spent approximately 50 hours creating an event system to do something similar. I do have a question though. I am currently trying to make a character generator using this script, is there any way to have the hue and index areas in @composite_character.push (['graphic_name', index, hue] reference a variable in RMVX instead of a constant. (i.e. @composite_character.push (['graphic_name', variable 0001, variable 0002]) I am fairly new to scripting and am not sure how this process works. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated :)

No, I actually do not have that type of feature installed  :'(

Sorry. I could add it though.

That would be amazing, if its not too much work. I tried to do it, but since I know nothing about scripting it didn't work too well.

Well, it's not particularly easy, but there are a few ways. As far as I know, they don't have a download pack or anything like that. You just have to find the hosted images and save them. So, look at the page info media and you should find what you're looking for.

Ok, I've got the sprites.
P.S.: I found out how to do it ^_^
(http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/tool/chibi/image/ym/body/1_red.png) ect.
But another question... (sorry XD)
I have armour, and it's graphics are for Males.
I want this armour to be only usable by males because the clothing looks pretty messed up on a girl sprite   :-\
Do you know any way to achieve this?

Sure, just make it so that you have separate classes for each character, and two of each armour entry as well and make it so that only the male characters have the class that can wear male armour.

So, if you have a Paladin class that both a man and woman can have, then make two Paladin classes in the Database - one who wears male armour and one who wears female armour.

This is great!

I´m testing it out right now and have a question. Is this compatible with Equip Extension by KGC?
Because when I try it out it doesn´t work, but when I remove the KGC script it works fine.

The problem is that with the Equip Extension it gives no error, the visual equipment just isn´t ... well, visual.
Composite_Character works, though.

It would be so nice if theese two scripts would work together!

Good job!

#_/         This script has two functions equipment-related functions.
#_/   The first function is the ability to create moire 'slots' for equipment,
#_/  such as separating Boots and Gauntlets from mere 'accessories'.
#_/  It is possible to also create additional equipment slots. See the customize
#_/  block for more details.
#_/ 
#_/   The second function is an "EP" (Equipment Point) System, which allows you
#_/  to designate how many 'points' an item costs to successfully equip. A
#_/  character's total EP expenditure is increased upon leveling up.
#_/  This introduces more strategy-oriented character customization.
#_/----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#_/                        ? Instructions For Usage ?
#_/  To make use of these functions, you must insert the tag into the desired
#_/   item's "Notes" box located in the Armor tab of the database. For example,
#_/   you want the Leather Boots to be bound to the "Legs" slot and cost
#_/   2 EP to equip. Insert <equipkind Legs>, press enter, then add <EP 2>
#_/ 
#_/                                ? Tags ?
#_/  <equipkind EquipType>
#_/   Where EquipType = The name of the type of equipment. See EXTRA_EQUIP_KIND
#_/                                                        below.
#_/  <EP Amount>
#_/   Where Amount = The desired amount of EP the item requires to equip.
#_/
#_/
#_/                           ? Script Commands ?
#_/  These commands are used in "Script" function in the third page of event
#_/   commands under "Advanced".
#_/
#_/  * set_actor_equip_type(ActorID, [EquipType])
#_/     Allows you to manually specify an actor's equipment slots. a
#_/      Ex. set_actor_equip_type(2, [0, 2, 3, 3, 3])
#_/      If "nil"(without quotations) is appointed to EquipType, the default
#_/      EQUIP_TYPE (see below) is used. Trust me, it's useful!
#_/
#_/  * change_actor_equipment(ActorID, equipslot_index, ItemID)
#_/     Allows you to change the equipment of a specified actor.
#_/      equipslot_index works by finding the equipment slot number, which is
#_/      different from EQUIP_TYPE. Setting ItemID to 0 will remove the item.
#_/                   With the default setup, we see:
#_/      0=Weapon 1=Shield 2=Headgear 3=Armor 4=Accessory 5=Legs 6=Arms
#_/
#_/                         So, for an example:
#_/                  change_actor_equipment(1, 3, 15)
#_/ Would change Ralph's(Actor01 in the database) armor to Chainmail(By default)
#_/

First try putting my script below the kgc one in the editor. If that doesn't work, I have no idea what the KGC script looks like, so I'll need to see it. Preferably, I'd like you to upload a project with the error in it.

There was a little bug in the script included in the demo and so I have reuploaded the fixed version of this demo. This bug consisted of an error where the up row of the sprite would not show up if it were a single file (starts with $). I apologize for this bug. If you had gotten the script straight from the code box, then you would not get this bug as that had been fixed from the day I put it up, so it is only necessary to re-get the script if you took it directly from the demo and you plan on using single-file sprites.

Koalas are awesome
1st of all, great script!
But, I too would like to use both this and KGC's Equip Extension... I have the two scripts attached to this post.

OK, I have posted below a version of the script that should be compatible with KGC - at least it should not cause the stack error. Please report back to me if there are any problems:

#  Composite Characters / Visual Equipment
#  Version 1.0 (KGC COMPATIBLE VERSION)
#  Author: modern algebra (rmrk.net)
#  Date: July 5, 2008
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Instructions:
#
#    Place this script in between Materials and Main in the Script Editor
#
#    To set a graphic for an armor or weapon, all you need to do is place this
#  code in the Notes box of the item:
#
#    \CG[<Name of Character Set>, <index in character set>, <hue>]
#
#  If you leave out index, it defaults to 0 and if you leave out hue, it also
#  defaults to 0. You can put more than one graphic to an armor or weapon and
#  they will stack, first one on bottom last one on top.
#
#    Setting up an Event is similar - all you need to do is place a comment at
#  the very beginning of the event and put in the same code to generate a
#  composite character set for the event. Same rules apply, and remember, you
#  can stack character sets.
#
#  EXAMPLES:
#    \cg[Actor1, 2]     # Character Set = Actor1 : index = 2 : hue = 0
#    \CG[Evil]          # Character Set = Evil   : index = 0 : hue = 0
#    \cG[Actor2, 3, 50] # Character Set = Actor2 : index = 3 : hue = 50
#
#  Setting up your Actors is similar - see line 151 for details.
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Compatibility:
#
#    Unfortunately, I did need to overwrite some methods for this script, and
#  as such there are likely to be compatibility problems. I know that my
#  Extra Movement Frames Script certainly will not work with this script, and
#  any script that tampers with the way a character set is drawn will also
#  likely encounter problems. Now, this is not to say that any script that
#  draws a character set will be incompatible - as long as that scripter uses
#  the draw_actor_graphic method of Window_Base it should work fine - it is
#  only scripts that change the way a character set is drawn that will cause
#  problems. Also, I tamper with the load_gamedata method of Window_SaveFile,
#  and so if another script overwrites that then there will again be
#  compatibility issues. If you find a script that seems to cause problems,
#  please post at the topic at rmrk.net and I will try my best to assist you.

The "Change Actor Graphic" function doesn't work. My intro lets the players design their character but the function "Change Actor Graphic" on page 3 doesn't work when I use this script. It is critical that you could do a fix.

Thanks.

I like that you use the word "critical" seriously :P

Anyway, here, I prepared a fix. The way it works is that the command adds the newly set graphic to the character (I assume, since you are allowing the character to be designed, this is what you want - so if you have a body as the default character graphic, then using this command on say, a hair sprite will give him hair; you could then use it again and it would add another feature, etc...), and then I implemented another command that will clear away all other graphics for when you want to change the thing entirely. If you use the script vent command and type in:

clear_character_graphic (actor_id) - it will clear away all graphics except the one last added.

Er... so I asume that this fixes the function " Change Actor Graphic" or if your talking about something else. I see you said use this command so Im thinking " He forgot to tell me the command".

Could you add me to msn " k-yoshi@live.com"

Also, that script.. Could you add it to the script.

Ah, that's my fault. In the regexp, I didn't acount for symbols as I ought to have. Anyway, around line 259, try replacing this line:

Code: [Select]
while text.sub! (/\\cg\[([\w\s]+),*\s*(\d*),*\s*(\d*)\]/i) { '' } != nil

with this one:

Code: [Select]
      while text.sub! (/\\cg\[([^,\]]+),*\s*(\d*),*\s*(\d*)\]/i) { '' } != nil

See if that fixes it.

Hey Modern Algebera,

I was wondering if you could make some adjustments to the script. Say, for example, I equiped an iron plate. Then it would show my character graphic changed and is now wearing armor. I'm sure with your crazy awsomeness you could find a way to do this  :o

I have an error with the script. Its weird, when I equip a gold beastplate, nothing happens. But when I walk down a couple steps, it flashes a picture of a green dude wearing a gold breastplate. I don't know what it is, but this is what I have under the notes.

\cg[5_yellow, 1]

(5_yellow is the picture i set as of the gold breast plate.)

Put a $ in front of the name of the file since it's only a single graphic

The green man is likely being flashed because of the settings in the script. Go to this part of the script:

Code: [Select]
    #---------------------------------------------------------------------
    # EDITABLE REGION
    #|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    #  An actor will automatically have whatever you set in the database
    #  as a bottom layer for him, but if you need to have other character
    #  sets piled on top, then put them in this format:
    #
    #  when <actor_id>
    #    @composite_character.push (['graphic_name', index, hue])
    #      *for as many graphics as you want - first ones drawn first. If you
    #       want to know what each is, see the Instructions in the header.
    #----------------------------------------------------------------------
    when 1 # 1st Actor
      # Create Hair Sprite
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 1, 100])
    when 3 # 3rd Actor
      # Create skin sprite with different hue
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 0, 20])
      # Create Hair Sprites
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 2, 75])
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 3, 75])

Remove all of the @composite_character.push lines if you don't want them. Only have stuff there if you want to build the character graphic from individual parts rather than having a single base character graphic.

Ok, that helped out the flashing man problem... but now when I got to equip something, nothing hapens. I equiped the Golden Breastplate (\cg[$5_yellow, 1]) and it didn't work.

Oh, of course. I didn't even see this, but where you wrote:

\cg[$5_yellow, 1]

the 1 is wrong. It should be 0, or left blank.

So:

\cg[$5_yellow]

or

\cg-$5_yellow, 0]

is what you need to do.

Rep: +0/-0Level 83
Great script! Exactly what i needed. I was wondering though, if i could affect hue(or maybe even graphic) with an event.

Example:
My game has an alignment system. I'd like it to change the player's appearance based on their alignment. If their alignment is more toward "evil", it should be darker... More "good" = brighter, etc. So if a player steals from/kills a merchant their alignment will change, therein changing their appearance(hue or otherwise).

If there's any way you could help with this, I'd be super appreciative.

Well, yeah, I mean you can set the hue of any character set with that third element in the array. As can be seen in the instructions:

Code: [Select]
#    \CG[<Name of Character Set>, <index in character set>, <hue>]

I don't have anything where the graphic can be a gradient based on a variable, but you could easily enough just replace it manually.

**
Rep: +0/-0Level 83
I understand how to change the hue of the character set for events... It's changing the player's hues(hair and else) while in game.

Unfortunately, my scripting abilities are nil... If there is a way to describe how to "replace it manually," that would be super helpful.

I attempted to change the 720 in following code to a variable with a few methods, all of which ending in failure:

when 1 # 1st Actor
      # Create Hair Sprite
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 1, 720])

Is this not the correct method? Or am i on the wrong path entirely?

Rep: +0/-0Level 83
Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about. It now works the way I outlined in the previous post.

The map's not bad, but the ground types don't mesh well and the bridge looks kind of strange.

Anyway, there is a demo. It's attached to the first post. The error you are getting is because you haven't a) grabbed the VisEquipSample graphic, which you don't actually need or want. But you need to change the graphics that are set up in the initial script. Just go down until you see the

Code: [Select]

    #---------------------------------------------------------------------

    #----------------------------------------------------------------------
    when 1 # 1st Actor
      # Create Hair Sprite
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 1, 100])
    when 3 # 3rd Actor
      # Create skin sprite with different hue
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 0, 20])
      # Create Hair Sprites
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 2, 75])
      @composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 3, 75])

And erase it or change it to add only the graphics you want to the actors.

Hey MA, I have a couple questions. I'm just starting to use this script so I just want to know how to customize a few things.

1: Where do I go to get rid of the hair-do on the player character from your demo.
2: Why doesn't my individual character sheets show up when I equip the items? (I have the comments like this in the notes box "\cg[$Helm_plate1]") I have not yet used your modification up somewhere for the use of the "$" symbol, so I'm about to try that and see if that fixes it. ~Edit: Nope that didn't work. My character remains blank. I also tried in the notes box "\cg[$Helm_plate1, 0]" just in case. Still nothing though.

You changed it and then started a new game? It will still be there unless the character is reinitialized.

If you don't want ti re-initialize it, add the patch in post #24 to change Actor graphic to your game and write the code:

$game_actors[1].clear_graphic

Lol, I know there's hair on him already. That's my sprite. I was getting tired of erasing parts so I said screw it and left the hair on that sprite. The rest of the sheets are fine though. The hair I was actually talking about was from your demo though. Which is why I started a new project. I realize that if it starts working, that bits of hair would stick out from behind any of the helmets that are overlaid. I'm going to remove the body later sometime. I just want it to work first. :)

~Edit:  I got it to work finally. ._.

I had to replace that one line of code with:
Code: [Select]
while text.sub! (/\\cg\[([^,\]]+),*\s*(\d*),*\s*(\d*)\]/i) { '' } != nil

WHICH, I already did, HOWEVER, there's 2 places that line is used. I only replaced one of them. I stumbled upon the second line and replaced it and it worked. That was troubling! :D Thanks for your help, MA.

I have no scripting experience, but I was wondering if there's an easy way to place the fully loaded sprite on a HUD or anywhere else...

i guess it may help if you know my prob. I am using this (http://www.hbgames.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=56154) battle system, and it places the character sprite on the HUD. Problem is it seems to pull the char sprite from the data base(which is a naked/bald template), whereas i need it to pull from the composite script.

any idea on how to sync them up? I can send a blank proj file loaded with both scripts if you want...

Can you make a hair stylist NPC or something like that?
Because in my game, they get to choose their gender, and I don't get how to change their hair from what's in the database.
I was thinking I could also make different actors with different hair bases or just make the character base with hair already.
But I still want to know if or how you can change the hair through an event or something.
Because I tried using the editable region in the script and putting it in the event, and I get a syntax error.

@Monkii & Yhtomitsu:
Yeah, Just know the index and you can do this:

Code: [Select]
actor = $game_actors[x]
cc = actor.composite_character
cc.delete_at (y)
cc.insert (y, ['graphic_name', index, hue])
$game_player.refresh

where x is the actor ID and y is the index of the hair sprite. I split it up so much so that you can use it in a call script. If it extends over more than one line, the you can split it up more by setting variables to the elements of the array. So, something like this would work, as an example:

Code: [Select]
actor = $game_actors[3]
cc = actor.composite_character
cc.delete_at (1)
n = 'VisEquipSample'
cc.insert (1, [n, 5, 0])
$game_player.refresh

@Ekuell:
Yeah, I did it for someone else. I don't remember where that got off too though. Send me the project or a blank project and I'll fix it up for you. I just need to change the Cache.character calls to Cache.composite_character and pass the character array.

It's more or less a find and replace operation, which is easy, but you don't know the syntax required.

EDIT::

I looked around on my comp and found this. It might be the compatibility fix I did for the other guy, I'm not sure. In any case, you'd replace the Sideview 1 (3.3a) entry with this. Try it in a separate project, so as to avoid corrupting your real project. Obviously, it will only work with regular sprites. And no, I'm not going to make it work with those animated battler sheets.

As for what to pass, it depends on the method. In some methods it would be @battler.composite_character, but it's different for what methods and in what classes, etc... Better to let me do it. Did replacing Sideview Battle 1 (3.3a) entry with the code in the txt document not work?

I wouldn't have thought they were incompatible, but then I don't know anything about this Shopoholic script. I quickly did a check and found no problems right off the bat. Where is the error coming from, when you do what? What does it say? If you're getting an error, then either send me the project in which you get the error so that I can work from that or, if you are uncomfortable sharing your game project at this stage, recreate the error in a new project and send that to me.

Well, examples are different because I use actual numbers and files rather than descriptions of what goes there. In any case, if you have 1.2, then that operation is built in as codes that you can write in directly to a script call:

There are more details in the Instructions of the script, and an event in the demo does it so you can take a look at that.

And index is the index of the character in the character set. Note that there are eight in character sheets, index identifies which of those characters is to be used. It goes:

0 1 2 3
4 5 6 7

What if I made it so the spritesheet only has one index(using '$' at the beginning of the filename)?
Just leave it blank?
Cause that's what I've been doing and it's worked so far.

EDIT:
I got it to work. :)
I was going to post that I got an error, and then I realized I didn't put apostrophes around the file name.
Thanks, dood.

Yeah, graphic_index is 0 by default, which is what it is for ingle sprite sheets.

Also, I didn't mention this but I thought it might be what you wanted to know. index, in the

Code: [Select]
remove_graphic_from_actor (actor_id, index)

refers to the index of the graphic in the composite character array. Anyway, I'm glad you got things working.

Yay a new problem... this time it's about the side view battle system again. When I use the animated enemy battlers add on theres an error "undefined method 'composite character' for #Game_Enemy:(some stuff) It would be great if you could fix it or something but you don't have to I think I might be able to live without it

I don't intend to make it compatible with animated battlers, sorry. If you wish, I could put in some code so that it doesn't call that error and you could use composite characters when not in battle, but I won't make it so that you can see what you equip on the animated battlers themselves.

**
Rep: +0/-0Level 83
Hmm I think I might have given you the wrong idea. I don't want them to see what you equipped. Theres just an error and I think since the enemy animated battlers are called from the battler folder and character folder your script tries to do something to it... that kind of made sense to me.

OK, well, I'm too lazy to get the sideview battle script again, but where this is in the code:

Code: [Select]

    # ????????????????
    return unless @anime_flug
    if @battler.actor?
      self.bitmap = Cache.composite_character(@battler.composite_character)
    else
      self.bitmap = Cache.composite_character (@battler.composite_character)
    end

Change it to:

Code: [Select]
    if @battler.actor?
      self.bitmap = Cache.composite_character(@battler.composite_character)
    else
      self.bitmap = Cache.character(file_name)
    end

and see if that works

Sorry, I didn't see this post before. That's because of a patch someone had requsted that changes the "Change Actor Graphic" command to one that adds files to the character, rather than resets it. If you want to change the graphic completely, just put a Script command before it that has:

Code: [Select]
clear_character_graphic (actor_id)

So

Code: [Select]
clear_character_graphic (1)
would change Ralph

Great script! I'll definitely be using it.

Has anyone already made any sprite sheets for this and is willing to give them to me? Of course I'd be willing to give credit where it's due. If not, that's cool.

Thanks a lot for the script!

I haven't looked at this script for a long time, but if I remember correctly, you can set the graphic up as:


#    \CG[filename, index, hue, priority] # Character Set = Actor2 : index = 3 : hue = 50 : z = 2


If you set the priority to less than 0 it will show up behind the character. Alternatively you could edit the file itself, which you might have to do anyway since you need the priority of the wings to be greater when walking up, so you might have to split the graphic into two files.

No, not as it is - it would not work with animated battlers - they use different types of sprites.

It is possible to make a script like this that would work for animated battlers, but it would require some scripting.

Hi, really great script! I love it.

But I have one small problem:
It's not compatible with 'RSSBS - Reedo's Simple Side Battle System'
Spoiler for:
Code: [Select]
###############################################################################
##  RSSBS - Reedo's Simple Side Battle System
##  Version 1.0
##  January 7, 2010
##  By Reedo
###############################################################################
##  SOURCE
##
##  Source thread:
##
##
##  Support thread:
##    http://www.rpgmakervx.net/index.php?showtopic=24587
###############################################################################
##  REFERENCES
##
##  None.  This is an original script by Reedo.
##  However other people have contributed ideas and bug finds. Please see the
##  support thread link above for details.
###############################################################################
##  DESCRIPTION
##
##  This script provides a plug-and-play Side Battle System for the default
##  battle system. This is purely an asthetic script, and as such, it only
##  modifies the visuals of the battle. It does not modify battle mechanics
##  when used by itself.
##
##  This script will:
##  1) Draw the party on the right side of the screen, facing left, during batle.
##  2) Cause actors to perform their stepping animation when they are on the
##     ground, and have no state restrictions applied.
##  3) Place a shadow under the actor.
##  4) Provide a target for animations, and optionally, animations themselves.
##  5) Line up actors in a staggerd row, top to bottom, with adjustable spacing,
##     recessed according to the position value of their class.
##  6) Cause actors to step forward when performing an action.
##  7) Draw actors lying down, whitened, and semi-transparent when dead.
##  8) Cause living actors to do a victory dance at the end of battle.
##  9) Provide the option to horizontally flip enemy images by enemy ID.
##
##  When used with the YERD or YEZ battle scripts, you then get even more
##  animation options (such as casting animations) and popups for most battle
##  event messages.  This SBS and YEZ combine to form an amazing SBS experience!
##     YEZ Script Link:  http://www.pockethouse.com/yez/
###############################################################################
##  COMPATIBILITY
##
##  Should be compatible with most other scripts.
##
##  This script overwrites 1 method: Spriteset_Battle.update_actors
##  All other methods are aliased, and those aliases are called.
##  The one overwrite should not cause an issue as the only functionality it
##  supresses is setting the party members to the current battle sprites. The
##  rest of the original method is maintained, and this script handles the
##  relationship between party members and battle sprites.
###############################################################################
##  REQUIREMENTS
##
##  None
###############################################################################
##  INSTALLATION
##
##  Plug-and-play. (and this time I mean it for reals!)
##
##  Insert below Materials, above other Reedo scripts.
##  All Reedo scripts should be below all YERD/YEZ scripts.
###############################################################################
##  RIGHTS & RESTRICTIONS
##
##  As with most Reedo scripts, this script is free to re-use, as-is,
##  in personal, educational, and commercial RPGVX development projects,
##  providing that:  this script, as well as the rpgmakervx.net forum link 
##  from which it was obtained, are credited in writing displayed readily
##  to the user of the final compiled code assembly.
##
##  Reedo and rgpmakervx.net retain all rights of intellect and ownership.
##  You forego all rights of warranty by utilizing this script.

OK, well look for this line in reedo's:

Code: [Select]
      gc.set_graphic(actor.character_name, actor.character_index)

Underneath it, try putting:

Code: [Select]
gc.composite_character = actor.composite_character

Hey Modern Algebra.

You're scripts are excellent, and I especially love this one.  Is there a way to display an actor in your party as a composite character event, like if they leave your party temporarily and you're able to speak with them in a pub or something, a la Star Ocean?

Not built in, but it's a good idea, so I wrote an addon. Just follow the instructions in the header:

#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Instructions:
#    Paste this into its own slot in the Script Editor, below Materials but
#   somewhere above Main
#
#    To set an event to actor graphic, use this code in a Script call (third
#   tab of event commands)
#      $game_map.events[event_id].set_to_actor (actor_id)
#          event_id : the ID of the event whose graphic you are changing
#          actor_id : the ID of the actor whose graphic you want the event to
#            have.
#
#    Remember, the event will retain whatever event settings it had originally,
#   including original pose, so if you want the event to be standing still
#   instead of with one leg out, you have to set it up with some graphic prior
#   to changing it by script and choose the pose you want the actor graphic to
#   be in.
#==============================================================================

How would i do that useing the script? Seeing how n is the name and h is for color.

Would i just.....

n = "$WhiteBedHead"
add_graphic_to_actor (1, n, 0, z, 1)

umm:

Code: [Select]
add_graphic_to_actor (actor_id, char_name, char_index, char_hue, z)

I think is the order, so:

Code: [Select]
n = "$WhiteBedHead"
add_graphic_to_actor (1, n, 0, 0, 1)

might do the trick. I don't know though - I don't really remember this script.

Great job on the script! But is there a way to set what the actors wear when there's nothing equiped on them? For example when there's no helmet equiped on the actor he will be wearing the hairstyle on him. And i would also like to try and make it actor-specific, different default hair for each actor. Is this possible?

I don't have much scripting knowlege so if there's something I need to add to the script i will apreciate it if you helped :)

Hey bro, is it possible to make this compatible with Kaduki Battlers using Sprite_Battler  for Sideview Ver3.3c.
I'm working on a kind free roam game like dragon quest 9 using Tankentai because I make a timed hit battle system addon with the Atb which is great. But in all great free roam games you need to have cloth and customizable options and your script works great until you use the battle system. Could you please make it compatible so I can use your cool script.

P.s I did try the 3.3a and it also didn't work.

Living proof that paradoxes exist in reality.
As I understand it, setting the priority for a graphic on a piece of equipment only affects the graphic in relation to other graphics on that same piece of equipment, correct? That the order in which the equipment items are drawn is determined exclusively by which slot they are equipped in?
Would it be possible to modify the script so that you can use the priority setting to customize that order instead?

For example,
If Character A was wearing Small Gloves and a Huge Baggy Robe, then it would make sense for the gloves to be drawn first, with the robe on top. But if Character B was wearing Mega Gauntlets and a Long-sleeved Shirt, it would be better for the shirt to be drawn first, with the gauntlets on top.
I initially thought this was how the priority setting worked, but after testing it and having my characters equipment drawn in a totally wrong order, I realized that I must have misunderstood the instructions.

I have an idea as to how to make this work, only I don't understand the language well enough to actually modify the script myself. Trying to read the character_graphic method of RPG::Base_Item only succeeded in giving me a headache, and that is one of the methods I'd need to change.

Errm, well that is how the priority setting should work. Lower priority are drawn first. So 0 would be the bottom layer, 1 would be the next layer, 2 the next, etc... If that isn't what's happening then that's a problem. Recreate the error in a new project and send it to me and I will see if I can fix it.

Nevermind, I figured it out. Stupid mistake on my part, I repeatedly left out one of the numbers in the notes box code, so what I thought was the priority setting was actually the hue setting... my bad. Works fine now, well, technically it always did, I just wasn't using it right, but you get the idea.

In my game, I use events to cycle between different hairstyles and different clothing styles....It's kind of hard to explain here, so could I send you a demo of the problem?

Basically, changing hair should be independent of changing clothes, but when I try to change one the other also changes as well.

Every time I try to change something in the code, something else goes wrong. Now the hairstyles are stacking on top of each other even though I put a script call to remove the previous style, in addition to the previous problem.

EDIT:

To cycle between styles, use left or right. To switch between hair and clothing, press up or down. All articles start on the left so you should start cycling right.

I fixed it. It's weird and I don't understand why, but it works perfectly now. Apparently I have to run both common events that handle the clothing and hair one right after another so that the game checks both.

I'm making a dungeon game, and i'm trying to use your script.
but I cant figue out how to configure the 'add_graphic_to_actor' script
the problem is, i dont get how the numbers after that are configured.

       This is the part i dont understand
 'index         : the index of the graphic in the actor's composite_character'
              what does it mean?

Ok, my question was asked by some one else, but not responded to...
My question: How do I remove a hair style from the hero when I equip a helm?

More to the point, I need to remove it from the (note) field on the helm, until the helm is unequipped. I have studied this code and this form for months, and all my attempts led me to think the script doesn't support the (note) field to remove graphics. I don't want to clear all of it, just the hair until the helm is removed. Any ideas would be of great help?  :-\

#  You can now remove and add graphics to the actor using the following codes
#  in a script call:
#
#   remove_graphic_from_actor (actor_id, index)
#   remove_graphic_from_actor (actor_id, graphic_name, graphic_index, graphic_hue)
#   add_graphic_to_actor (actor_id, graphic_name, graphic_index, graphic_hue, index)

I also think its odd that the last remove code is an add code, is this a typo?

This is a brilliant script, and will save me a lot of time on resource creation, so let me first thank you for it.

Second, and I don't hold out too much hope for this, but is there any way to make it compatible with GubiD's tactical battle system (GTBS)?

It's available here: http://www.mediafire.com/?alyjzm4qgyg

i really hope this isnt a necropsted but... is this thing gonna work on GTBS? i was hoping to minimize my work by using this and some of my tweaks. since i will do a character creation for my game, this might be helpful. i am afraid it might not work for GTBS animated or non animated battlers.

Just import them into your game like you would any other character sets? If they are singles and not a set of 8 then put a $ in front of them as you would normally.

I really don't know what you mean - all the relevant instructions are in the header of the script and I really don't know how I could explain it any better in such a general way. There's also a demo which (I think) demonstrates every feature of the script. If maybe you have a more specific and focussed question about what you don't understand about the instructions or the demo, then I can clarify. But as it is, I have already explained the general aspects of the script to the best of my ability inside the script and demo and I don't know how to improve on that without knowing where you are having difficulty.

Sounds like you have a hue set on your hair sprites. Set the third option to zero and that should make it normal.

Example :
@ma_composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 2, 75])

Change to :
@ma_composite_character.push (['VisEquipSample', 2, 0])

excuse me!
can you make this run with extra movement frames? will this work with bigger sprite set??
hmm not 32x32?
im using RO sprite sheet. can you make it run to have 8 frames width, 9 frames height??

im using the kaduki SBS. so it would be nice to be my $actor_idle, $actor_walk, $actor_run just have the Headgears in map.
and for my $actor_idle_1(for battle scene) should be like this.
i want to make my $actor_idle_1 graphic to be the 1st layer
2nd layer is for my weapon graphic, 3rd layer is my shield graphic, if two handed also in 2nd layer,
then 4th layer is for my head gear low, 5th layer for my headgear mid, 6th layer is for my head gear top..
Sorry For my bad English im asian, please do tell me if my english is worst and u understand what im saying i will try my best to make it more clear.
thanks in advance..

Is it possible to add an extra tag so this can effect different classes specialy, but if special class tages aren't used, the other tags will effect any untagged class?

I was thinking something like:

Code: [Select]
\cg[Actor2, 3, 50, 2, 5] # Character Set = Actor2 : index = 3 : hue = 50 : z = 2 class :5

By the way, what does z do?

EDIT: I just realized I don't need this anymore :( It probably won't work when I use the animation frames with Tankentai SBS ATB D: They extra frames make the game more awesome

Well, all of the edits I made up to December 5, 2009, are included in the script.

As far as I know, the only edits I made after that are compatibility patches, meaning that they are only relevant if you have the conflicting script. As far as I know, all of the compatibility patches I made are listed in the "Known Compatibility Issues" of the first post, so just see if you have any of those scripts and, if so, grab the corresponding patch.

Amazing script, MA. I've been lurking a few months at this site but I've never commented (because I can't speak english properly) and I think this script is particularly interesting.
On the other hand, I'm using the Extra Movement Frames script and it's a shame that they're not compatible.

Is there any chance of a compatibility patch in the future?

Hey, i don't know if you still check this thread, but its worth a try. the script works amazing, but when i am in the game and i try to save, the game shuts down with an error (i named the script 'Equip'):

Script 'Equip' line 480: NoMethodError occured
undefined method 'Composite_Character' for "Actor 3":String

The only Other Scripts I Am Running Are 'Requiem ABS 9' and 'Dargor Map Name Popup'
and, of course the rtp scripts.

If Anyone can fix this, thank you.

Sorry for the necro but I'd love to use this script. Though I do have one question.

Is it possible to edit this script just so that not only the sprite but also the face is edited.

I'm in need of something like a character creation in the beginning of my game.
There are three races to the main face would be one of these three depending on the choice they made, also male or female. So the bases would have been chosen because of that. But I'd love to let my players choose their hair style and colour, eye style and colour, markings and accessories, something like the RMVXA character generator but then inside the VX game.

I would want to use some face-sets for different hairstyles, eye-styles, etc. depending on male/female, and the same for the hairstyles and eye-colour on sprite-bases.

If you would even consider thinking about taking this question/request about this script and changing it so that that too is made possible, I'd be very, very, very grateful.

Oh, and I love most of the scripts you made, they are all very compatible with all of the others I use.

I wanted to see if it was possible to add in tinting. I really only want it as a way to control brightness (RGB together) and contrast (grey).

This script seems to block the "change character graphic" event, which I have used a LOT throughout my project.  It would be a nightmare to have to associate every single one of those events with your script.

Edit: I was hesitant to use a parallel common event for what I needed, but apparently it's not going to lag the game like I thought it would. Yay!
