Advanced Text System


This will be based off my Advanced Text System for RMVX, but since RMVX Ace has a much more sensibly designed message system, it is no longer necessary that it be one large script. For that reason, and responding to feedback on the ATS, I will split the ATS into multiple different scripts so that you only need to pick up the components for the features that you want. It is therefore easier to customize and configure, and it should be more compatible with other message-related systems that might be developed.

In that regard, my plans are to have five separate scripts, each independent, which encompass the major elements of the VX version. Examples of the features from each script are included.

These are:

Links to each script will be added as they are completed.

MA~ I would like to say that the the paragraph options, advanced message options and advanced choices~ were the ones I used more when I made my visual novel for VX :D

It's a really nice script~

Not meaning to bump the topic too much, but is the Advanced Message Options and Advanced Choices going to be available in the future?

It's the main script I'm waiting for before I actually start the eventing for my game.

Well, the future yes. The near future? I am not sure.

I will probably do the Face Options before the ones which you are requesting, but it's difficult to predict which scripts I will feel like doing. I will try to get it done by the time the English VXA is released.

I really want face options, that face window was the best darn thing, made it so I could write out a whole line without having to cut it off early.

I'd be happy just for a face window script at this point, but there isnt one yet, no neofaces either, though I dont want that.

Yeah, I haven't had a lot of motivation for scripting lately, and I am more interested in doing new things than bringing over my old scripts, but I will get around to this eventually.

Ah, I see, that makes sense. No pressure though!

I guess a lot of people look forward to these since they're actually pretty useful scripts and want to use them in ACE too (me including, since I love the practicality of your scripts). But, it's pretty understandable that one would get bored of constant porting and wanting to do new things. I wish you all the best of luck then, man!

1) - The script doesn't have a speech bubble and have bubble tails that extend from the dialogue towards the characters sprite because the script is mostly on features of the text box instead of how it look's like.

Well, the Special Message Codes script is written and that does permit italicization, but to be honest I don't really intend to add strikethrough text as an option. I will let you know when I get the nameboxes etc script written.

Hey Modern, using this in combination with your ATS: Special Characters script I noticed a little quirk.

If I write a line that I want to break with a pause like so, \n \!
Then when I move on to what should be the next line, it appends to the end of the first. The line break never happens- just the pause.

Is there something I'm doing wrong here?

Does this script allow setting font size? I know we have \{ and \}, but we can't with normal VXA message system set font size directly. Something like \size[font size in pt] would be good to have.

Yes, the Special Message Codes script allows you to set font size directly with the \fs[n] code.

I have request. Could you make script that allows us to set message window's height in lines? So instead of current 4 we can have any amount we want, like 2 or 6.

I know this took forever for me to get around to (I forgot about it), but it should work fine if ATS: Formatting is below ATS: Special Message Codes. I still need to fix it so that it works in either order, but that should do it for now.

This is a great set of scripts!  I've a question regarding compatibility.  I'm hoping you will tell me there is an easy fix and I can edit a few lines and get going again...

I've been using this script here,
http://rmrk.net/index.php?action=post;topic=44525.25;num_replies=37
to keep track of the text in my game and to help me keep it all to the proper format.  The author mentions that there will be issues with codes that aren't persistent?

I'm having trouble getting your color code \c[n], center text code \a[C] and play sound effect code \pSE to carry through. (I haven't tried many of them but I know the Italics code does work)

Is there anything I can change to make these work together?

Thanks!

I can state with fidelity that Yanfly's Victory Aftermath script does that with or without this script. I'm using Yanfly - Message Options and the same error happens, not sure about the other case of /n failing to be recognized but this one is not Modern Algebra's fault.

Also, I didn't know you still planned to release face options MA. It'd be great if that is still a thing you're doing.

Well, that came fast. I think I have to withdraw my permission. I had originally planned to make the entire face controlled through a window, rather than a window and a sprite as it was in VX, but that turned out only to simplify some things and complicate others in rather nasty ways. As such, I had to revamp and it's going to take a little while longer.

See for yourself.

I am so sorry that it took so long! It still hasn't been completely tested, so I am counting on you all to report any bugs that you find.

I am planning to update a few of the scripts soon (nothing big, but an efficiency fix for the paragraph formatter, speech icons for Message Options, removing scroll arrows if not using scroll review in Message Options, etc.). Aside from that, I don't have any further plans for ATS-related scripts.

If anyone has any ideas for message features, I'm all ears (which leaves no room for action). Well, at least, action has proven elusive, but I will try to work up the energy if there are any good ideas.

I have an idea, but it might be complicated. It's essentially what I was trying to do with your hover alerts. Parallel messages, so you can have other NPCs talking to each other while you are walking around and it will pop up over the talking NPC and close on it's own. (This was a feature in derula's RMXP hermes)

But it's just a suggestion. If you or anyone finds themselves working on something like this, please let me know :) meow that face options is done, it's the ONLY thing that I'm missing from my XP to Ace conversion. :P


Also looking forward to the updates!


Thank you for this series of scripts.


Another idea: Ability to use an image for regular messages too (And not just dim).

I have a suggestion -if you're up for it! I don't know about the feasibility of it. But what about extending your system to other windows? For example it would be great to be able to have longer Item descriptions and skill descriptions making use of the scrolling features to display longer descriptions with all of the features you have added such as icons and such. Don't know if this is still being actively developed but I thought I'd throw it out there just in case. I also like the idea above about being able to kind of have a "Parallel Message" running on the map as posted above.

I've recently started a new project, again. And I went looking for your ATS-scripts as usual, since I just love them.
I have all of them implemented, in the order you put in this topic, all above anything else, just like ever.

Though, I seem to bump into a tiny, whiny, ini, mini error every time I try to use Ace's scrolltext option......
I didn't even use anything besides the default enabled option in this piece of scrolltext.

Code: [Select]
Script "MA's ATS Format" line 691: NoMethodError occured.

undefined method 'maatsfo_line_width' for
#<Window_ScrollText:0x861cf08>

I just don't know how to solve it (besides perhaps getting rid of the ATS :( )...


As blonde as can be!!!
Doesn't mean I'm the dumb one...

Is that the code or the error message? In my copy of the script line 691 is just the END component for the Total Line Width. Is it the same in yours?

Hello!

Give me a hand here if you can. I'm having a little problem with the Formatting script of the ATS Series. It's nothing big but it's rather annoying.

Check this screenshot, please don't mind the Spanish nonsense.

LINK!

Note that paragraph_format is active and working, however it still leaves "empty spaces". Not completely "filling" the message window.

Interesting enough, if you speak with the same NPC and display the same text again... it does fix the issue.

LINK!!

See? More aesthetic! And not just that, but it takes less space/lines to show the same message.

The thing is that it reverses to the first, non-aesthetic, formatting from the first screenshot every time you open the game. I want to know if there's a way to fix this.

I tested this with a new, clean project.

Thanks!

MA!!! I'm running in to this weird problem where appended text scrolls my character faces, any idea?




Edit: found out the text scrolling function also scrolls the faces. I thinkthat should be fixed.

I'm actually getting this error too, but I don't think it has anything to do with ACE as I don't have it installed. Just ATS. Every time I try to put in a scrolling text effect, I'm getting this error. Not sure why.

The problem happens on line 691 of ATS Formatting, not ATS Message Options.

Hi oriceles. You can use the Face Options script.

@hiro - That does appear to be an error. I updated the Formatting script to version 1.1.4. Please try replacing your version with that one and let me know if it works.

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I assumed the worst, that I'd never hear back. Thanks so much for the fix.

Unfortunately, it didn't work.  :( With the new Formatting script installed, I now get the following message when I attempt to display scrolling text:

Code: [Select]
Script 'ATS Formatting' line 692: NameError occurred.

undefined local variable or method `new_line_x' for
#<Window_ScrollText:0x96142a8>

I've tried changing the order the scripts load, but it doesn't seem to change the outcome.

That looks like it fixed it! Thanks so much, modern algebra. You're amazing! :D

Hello there, Modern Algebra. I just registered to pop in and report an obscure bug I found regarding the simultaneous usage of your ATS: Message Options and ATS: Choice Options scripts. But before that...

I want to sincerely thank you for creating the ATS series of scripts. I quite simply cannot imagine making any RPG Maker VX Ace game without them, anymore. The batch of them is just too good to ignore. :)

Now, I did mention a bug report... So, here it is:

Scripts Involved
ATS: Message Options [VXA]
Version: 1.0.7

and

ATS: Choice Options [VXA]
Version: 1.0.0

Preface
I tested this in a clean environment (completely new project) with no other scripts or custom resources but these two. The problem persisted. Thus, I can only imagine that this is a genuine bug.

Bug Description
If you use a custom Windowskin via the option in ATS: Message Options, the Help window from ATS: Choice Options is emptied of text.

You can see what I mean in the attachments of this post.

For the clean environment in which I took the attached screenshots, I took /Graphics/System/Window.png from the RGSS3 RTP, renamed it "Window - Message" (w/o quotes), and moved it to the same folder in the clean environment. ATS:MO is set to use "Window - Message" as the Message Windowskin.

I don't know if this will help, but... I noticed that, if the custom Message Windowskin is named as the default Windowskin (i.e. "Window"), then this problem does not occur. Following that lead, I managed to find out that the problem goes away if the custom Windowskin is not applied to the Help Message Box, as can be seen if you were to comment out line 995 of ATS: Message Options.

End Of Report

I don't mean to impose, but I would be greatly appreciative if you could find a fix to this bug. ;)

Thank you again for creating this wonderful series of scripts.

Haha, thanks. It is an avatar in some default folder or another, though. ;)

Thanks Vandril for the detailed bug report. I am sorry that I didn't get back to you sooner. I haven't been around lately. I haven't been doing any scripting lately, but if I do start up again then I will fix the issue.

No worries on making me wait or anything. I'm more than content that you got back to me at all.

I will patiently await the day when you might make said fix. ;)
