# Intro:
# Ever need more than 4 self switches? With this small script, you can now
# have as many self switches you want. You aren't just limited to letters
# either. You can have names for them.
#
# Features:
# -More Self Switches
# -Name them whatever
#
# Instructions:
# -First, lets create a self switch for our event. Anywhere in the event, add
# a comment and type this,
# Switch:switch_name.
# switch_name can be whatever you want to name the switch. Thats all you have
# to do to create a self switch for that page.
# There cannot be any spaces between the colon and the switch name.
# e.g. Switch: switch - Does not work.
# e.g. Switch:switch - Does work.
# You also need the Self-Switch box on the page checked.
#
# -Now to turn this switch of or on, call this in a script call.
# self_switch("switch", true/false)
# switch is the switch name, this must be in double " " or single ' ' quotes.
# true/false tells the script whether to turn it off or on. true = on,
# false = off.
#
# -If you want to see if a self switch is on/off, use this script in a
# condtional branch.
# self_switch_state("switch") == true/false
# switch is the switch name, this must be in double " " or single ' ' quotes.
# true = on, false = off
#
# Compatibility:
# Not tested with SDK.
# Should work with anything.

Very nice. A handy tip for sad souls who need more event conditions. I even bothered to look through your code, it looked all compatible there.
Good stuff g_g.

First of all, this is a cool and really useful script,
but I found a BIG bug.
All the self switches work fine, but when you make a map transfer and than return into the previous map, all the switches made are automatically reset !
an example:
I create an event, I set a red treasure chest as graphic, priority same as character, trigger action button.
In the Event Commands part i write using Script Call       
self_switch("BLUE", true)
Now I make another event page
I set as graphic a blue chest and I check the Self Switch Box
In the Event Command part I write using Comment   
Switch:BLUE
Now, in playtest, if I interact with the chest it becomes blue.
But if I go to another map and I return back, automatically the chest returns red, so the self switch BLUE I created turned off.
That's the problem. With this, I can't actually use your script !
Can you fix it ?
I really need your script, so please fix this bug and/or help me !

To fix that, g_g, I think you'd have to store the data in either Map, Temp or System. Probably Map, it'd be a bit odd in System (although you do need to have it remembered for save files!), but that's just me as a sounding board.

I wasn't aiming that at you, rather game_guy.

Easy fix. Will do that now. And all data is already stored in $game_self_switches. It was just a matter of my fault for not accessing the data if it existed. I know more about RGSS/RGSS2 then you guys think. ;3

Actually, looking through my code, there should be no reason its doing that. O_o I'll go try and attempt to recreate this bug.

Fixed. Theres most likely a bug in RMXP now too. >_>

Oh, I know how skilled you are at RGSS. Not insulting your ability at all.
I also know that you're creating ARC and that's going to be an incredible thing on a resume on day.

I am not able to see it work.

Could someone explain me better?
