Um... yeah I'm a little lost.

-I was asking where I'm supposed to paste this:

class Game_Event
  attr_writer   :original_pattern
end


-Also, I don't think you asked me to paste this anywhere yet..:

new_event.pages[0].graphic.pattern = 1



-You did however ask me to paste this:

 event.original_pattern = 1


-Under this:

rescue
            event.set_graphic ($game_actors[actor.id].character_name, $game_actors[actor.id].character_index)
          end


Lol So where does everything go again, and which script exactly cuz one could get paste it in the wrong place... :P

1.
Code: [Select]
class Game_Event
  attr_writer   :original_pattern
end

You can paste it in its own slot if you want, or at the end of the silver wind addon, or anywhere really, except inside another class. Just paste it into its own slot is the easiest thing to do.


2.
Code: [Select]
new_event.pages[0].graphic.pattern = 1
I did indeed tell you where to paste that line:

Anyway, to fix it, go to line 64 of the addon to see this:

Code: [Select]
   new_event.pages[0].priority_type = 1

Put a new line directly under it with this:

Code: [Select]
   new_event.pages[0].graphic.pattern = 1

3.
Code: [Select]
new_event.pages[0].priority_type = 0
is to go directly underneath
Code: [Select]
   new_event.pages[0].graphic.pattern = 1

4.
Code: [Select]
event.original_pattern = 1

You've pasted that in the correct place.

"I can see clearly now the rain is gone!"

LOL Thanks again man you rock!


Edit:
Okay now the sprite faces in the correct position, but it still won't let me walk through it in maps where it's event is not located. And I made sure to make the original sprite set to under.
Is there something we can do?

Oh also, I just noticed something...
In the game there are butterflies that when touched fly over the head of the main character and replenishes the PP (Psychic points).
Will the script make so the butterfly event not fly over the following characters or will it allow event that are to to above go over them?

One last thing.
Earlier before I asked for the fixes, I made the main character with a following member walk on a event that would change both the main characters sprite and the following members sprite so that it looks like they are climbing.
But while the sprites were climbing the following member kept jumping under the leader and stayed back for a bit and then jumped under again, and didn't stop until the sprites were switched back to normal...

Just thought I'd mention that...

And that's with the priority_type set to 0? I didn't think it made sense to depend on the priority of the hero - I will take another look at it sometime in the next few days and see if I can resolve your issue.

Ok I don't know where to put it(whether in reserve party topic or here).I'm using Modern algebra's reserve party and when I take out one member from the party so that there are only three in the active party,then the caterpillar shows four members where the first one is the duplicate of the second member.But if I check my active party from menu or battle screen it shows three members.how to remove the duplicate member?here's a screenshot to explain it better.

before (with 4 active members)-

after (with 3 active members)-

also how do I disable the party leader from getting subtracted from the active party?that is how do I ensure he cannot be moved from active party while others can be removed or changed?

Um, try adding $game_player.refresh right above $game_system.caterpillar.update in that code I gave you. If that doesn't work I will look into it.

There isn't any $game_system.caterpillar.update in your bit of code fix.there is $game_system.caterpillar.refresh only.and if you are talking of zeriab's script,I added $game_player.refresh before $game_system.caterpillar.refresh in it but it did not work.

Alright, can you possibly reproduce the conditions for error in a new project and send that to me? (or else just send me your project if you don't mind sharing it at this stage).

Hey Modern Algebra I figured out what was making the following events jump under the Leader when switching sprites. I had a Common event that made the followers switch to a sprite while walking and then switch back when stopping. After I altered that Event to only switch and not switch again The jumping stopped!

So you can cross that right off your list of glitches buddy!

Hey Modern I found something interesting that you might want to look at.

When I places the KGC Script under the 3 scripts that give us the diagonal movement it gives me this error everytime I start up the project.

Script 'Zeriab Caterpillar' line 449: ArgumentError occurred.
wrong number of arguments(3 for 2)



Maybe this could help you identify the problem!

Sorry, I haven't had time to take a look at anything RM for quite some time. I'll try to get around to it when I can.

So... um... Any progress with the script buddy?

Okay... I know its kind of necro posting but I have a question.

Will the script still work if instead of having a event on the map for the caterpillar you just make the events into Common Events and have them activated all the time with the appropriate name of the character?

I have yet to try it, but I would appreciate someones professional opinion.

Hey... my name's... Sashikinaroji...
Rep:

fear me...
The point of having the events on the map is so that there is a graphical representation of the other party members. I don't think that a common event can do that...
Ok, DON'T EXPECT HELP FROM ME~! I will perhaps rant a bit, but don't expect me to do graphics for you, even if I say I will... I won't.

Yeah, no you can't just use a common event. What you can do, and what I did when I used this script, is set all the interactions up in a common event and simply have all the caterpillar events that you use for that character in every map call that common event.

Hey, I've been trying to get this script and the autoparty add on to work, and I've got them running pretty smoothly, except when you load a saved game the followers that were generated prior to saving will just stand in the place they were in during the save and not move. This goes away as soon as you change maps but it looks really awkward. I was wondering if there was any way around it? Whenever I change something enough for the script to reinitialize or whatever the saves won't have this issue for at least one load, I think if there was a way to flip the activating switch off and on real quick every time you load a game it would work, I just have no idea how one would go about doing that.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using KCG's Large Party script as well as the Tankentai Side View Battle System in addition to this script. It worked fine. But then I added a total of 6 characters to my party, changed the party number in all of my scripts to that it would work with 6 people, and then re-arranged the positions the characters will be in during battles. Then it crashed. I get the error:

Script: "Zeriab Caterpillar" line164:NoMethodError occurred.
undefined method 'values' for nil:NilClass

Any help here?
