#  Character Hover Graphics
#  Version: 1.3
#  Author: modern algebra
#  Date: March 10, 2009
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Instructions:
#    Place this script above Main and below Materials.
#
#   To have a graphic hover, first you need to import the picture that you want
#  to have hovering in the Pictures folder. Then, you can place it over any
#  event with this in a call script:
#
#      set_hover_graphic (char_index, picture, bouncing_boolean, colour, size)
#
#    Where:
#      *char_index is the index of the event that you want it to hover over. If
#         this is set to -1, it will be over the player. If it is set to 0, it
#         will be over the current event. If it is set to any other ID, then it
#         will be over the event with that ID. If this is not set, it is
#         assumed to be 0
#      *picture is the name of the picture that you want to have hovering in
#         quotation marks. So, if your picture is named Exclamation! then
#         you would put: "Exclamation!" here. Remember, these graphics must be
#         in your Pictures folder. If the picture you denote is not in the
#         Picture file, then it will instead draw the actual word you send
#         through. If you set this to nil, then it will turn off any graphic
#         currently hovering over the specified event. If you leave this space
#         blank, it will default to nil.
#           If the name of the picture is prefaced by %[x], then the picture
#         will animate, with x being the number of frames. SO, a picture that
#         is named %[6]Teardrop and is 192 x 32, will consist of 6 frames, each
#         32 x 32 cutouts of the file. If you do not specify a number of frames
#         and merely preface the file with %, then it will default to 4 frames.
#      *bouncing boolean is either true or false, where true means that the
#         graphic will bounce up and down and false meaning it will be
#         stationary. If it is not set, then it defaults to false
#      *colour is the color you want the text drawn in, and this will only work
#         if it is writing text, not using a picture. If you set this as an
#         integer, it will take the colour of the corresponding index from the
#         windowskin palette. If you put an array, it will take that as the
#         RGB values. So, [255, 0, 0] would be RED, etc... If you leave this
#         blank, it defaults to 0, so the normal color on the windowskin palette.
#      *size is the size of the text. Again, this matters only if it is text
#         being drawn and not a picture. This determines the size of the text
#         drawn. If left blank, it will default to 20.
#
#   EXAMPLES:
#
#     set_hover_graphic (0, "Exclamation!")
#         - Assuming there is a picture in your Pictures folder named
#       "Exclamation!", it will set that picture to hover over the event that
#       calls it. If no such picture exists, it will print the text:
#       "Exclamation!" over the character
#  
#     set_hover_graphic (5, "?", true)
#         - Assuming there is a picture in your Pictures folder named "?", it
#       will set that picture to hover over the event with ID 5. If
#       no such picture exists, it will print a question mark over Event 5. It
#       will be bouncing.
#
#     set_hover_graphic (-1, "Player Name", false, 8, 28)
#         - This will print "Player Name" over the player. It will not be
#       bouncing. It will be drawn in the colour with index 8 on the windowskin
#       pallette. It will be size 28.
#
#     set_hover_graphic (-1)
#         - Will delete any hover graphic that is over the player.

Looks good. I'll have to take a closer look at the bouncing graphic feature a bit later.

**
Rep:
Level 85
When I set the bouncing flag to true, it does work...

However, the bouncing picture do not return back to its original place, precisely. It does bounce but slowly the picture is advancing down. It can even go down past the event it's supposed to be above.

My picture is 32x32 pixels, same as the tile.

The picture will reset back to its original place when I receive some item from different chest on same map.

This definitely caught my eye and looked really nice. So I stuck it in a project to test it out.. and came up with what I call an error.

When I call the script, and it hovers an image or text over an event, should the player move and cause the screen to have to scroll.. the hovering image or text goes along with the screen.

Is this something that's fixable.. or just has to be dealt with?

Sweet. 'Cuz I think I'm sick of placing an event above an NPC to display an icon of some sort that has to move with the NPC.
Might use this though I don't think I'll be finishing any games anytime soon, since I'm still experimenting and such.

Heh. I really like this script. I'm using it so that the player can easily know which NPC out of the fifty billion in each pub or whatever is the vendor/innkeeper/mentor/etc.; basically, I'm using it to distinguish service NPCs from the commonfolk.

Good work. =D

Hey MA, do you think you will make it optional to have the icons be animated? (I mean besides bouncing) That'd be awesome

Version 1.2 released

Not much different, but someone on another forum suggested that it would be a good idea to be able to set the colour and the size when drawing text, and I agreed. So that's that.

@grafikal: animated icons sounds cool. Do you have any specific format you would like that in?

Nothing specific, I think it'd be awesome to have something animate around like if a player were poisoned, it could visually show it, or an NPC rather.

Rep: +0/-0Level 83
Current Project: RoSL
An idea for the animated suggestion: It could use a "characterset" type thing, like the balloon emotes do.

I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but I think that'd be kinda cool. The Tankentai SBS has a feature similar to this in that when an actor is at critical HP, the sweatdrop emote will loop it's animation over their head until they die or get healed above that critical point. That is prolly the closest existing example to what my idea is.

Just throwing some thoughts out there. Lemme know if you'd like any clarification or something.

Yeah, that sounds like something of what I'll do. I think I will make it just so that there is a character that, if at the start of the name identifies it as animated, and you can set the number of frames in the filename, so like:

%[4]Exclamation

or something, and what that would do is make it so that it will cycle between 4 frames. I don't think I will make speed an option...

And the frames will go across, so if Exlamation is 84 x 32, each frame would be 21 x 32


EDIT::

OK, Version 1.3 is now up. Please inform me if you encounter any bugs.

Really good script Modern Algebra.  ;D :P

But I was wondering if there was somewhere i could get a yellow exclamation mark, a grey question mark and a yellow question mark images (32x32 pixels)that I could put over NPCs and which would be used to do available quest, unfinished quest and finished quests like the most RPG based-games uses. Thanks and like I said really good script :P I love it.

I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to make them. Do you have an image editing program? Because then you could make thin in whatever font and shade you want. I can make them for you if you don't.

The font I used is Black Rose

Is there any way to make it only show for a few seconds at each map transition?

If you've ever played Final Fantasy IX, I'm referring to the way to HERE Icon works.

Every time you transition from map to map, a pointer shows over the character's head for a few seconds, then disappears, but can be called to show permanently at the press of the Select Button.

Any way to do that with this? I'm sure it's possible.

Well, the easiest way is just with a parallel process at the beginning of each map.

Something like:

Script: set_hover_graphic (-1, "Here Arrow")
Wait: 240 Frames
Script: set_hover_graphic (-1)
Erase Event

But after five seconds of looking over at the screenshot I took, I figured out what the problem was. Sorry about that.

Once again, great script. I appreciate the time and effort you must've put into this.

yeah, well you shouldn't let the command go to two lines since it evaluates them separately.

instead, you could put:

Code: [Select]
n = "pointerdown"
set_hover_graphic (-1, n)

but yeah, you said you figured it out so that was probably unnecessary.
