It would work fine with twelve. I'll post some screen shot of the menu so you can see what it looks like.

It sounds pretty neat. I would like to see some screenshots though.

In any case, this is definitely going to the database.

Thanks :). This was my first CMS, and I have only been scripting for about a month now, so the code is slightly messy. I may spend sometime cleaning it up.

If you don't mind, I'm going to change the name of this topic to Unlimited Actor Custom Menu System, since 14-man seems unnecessarily restrictive and people might think the number can't be changed.

Oh, no; there's nothing to apologize for. I just wanted to make sure it gets as much traffic as possible.

Hi
Well, this looks pretty neat after seeing those screenshots. I won't use it since I don;t have facesets and I don't have battlers for my game.

Well, you just gave me an idea of what I can do for a future update.

I might make it so you can turn on and off the face set display along with the battlers display.

First of all, I want to say that I absolutely love this code. It's the first working code for changing out party members that I found, and I love the menu update.

However, I seem to be having difficulties adding new items to the inventory, and I can't figure out why... I want the main character to start out with no weapons and armor, but when I try to add one in the game, it gets a NoMethodError, saying that 'push' is an undefined method... Do you know how I might fix this? Oh, and I tested it if he starts with weapons and armor, and it works fine then... but then I tried to add a regular item and it errored again.

Thanks!

Edit: Update on my problem:
It works perfectly fine, whether I start with items or not, if I don't look at the menu. However, if I look at the menu, it errors out. Also, I noticed that while it adds the potion-type items to the 'potion' menu in 'items', it doesn't add them to 'recent items'. I have no other codes added in, so I'm really not sure why it's doing this... It seems to work perfectly fine in the demo, which confuses me even more. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Hmm, well I am not really sure what the problem is. However, it might have to do with the recent items script. I released a separate and more recent version of the script here. Try putting that below the menu script and tell me if it works. I will also look into this error, thanks you letting me know.

I get an error: [undefined method 'Icon_name' for nilClass] everytime I try to view the items sub menu after an event in which an item was taken away from the inventory :( I can't seem to figure it out!
