The sixth day of resources, if my math isn't failing me.


This is the fourth poll in the Twelve Days of Resources contest. For this contest, we had people submit a total of 42 RPG Maker resources for everyone to enjoy and use as they wish. Then, over the twelve days of Christmas, we hold polls for people to vote for all of their favorite resources. The ones with the top votes will be included in the next poll, while the ones with less votes are voted off the island removed from the future polls. On the second last day of Christmas, we'll then give out awards for best pixel art, best portrait art, best scripting, and best music, before setting up the final poll for one last vote for your favorite out of all of them!

We have eliminated two more resources from the previous poll, so today we will have 13 total resources to choose from with 8 votes.  Incidentally, if anyone is wondering what happened to days three and four, I am currently out of town for the holidays and it's not easy for me to get online. I apologize for the strangeness of the schedule changes.

The voting is getting tighter and tighter now that it's getting harder to choose between well-made resources. We're already done to only having one last script remaining, and some of the well received ones from the beginning are starting to feel the heat. Who is going to win the top tier? Final polls are in a few days, so everyone have a safe New Year tonight and you'll get to find out!

ATS: Special Message Codes by modern algebra

Code: [Select]
#==============================================================================
#    ATS: Special Message Codes [VXA]
#    Version: 1.0
#    Author: modern algebra (rmrk.net)
#    Date: December 11, 2011
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Description:
#
#    This script allows you to use a number of additional special codes in the
#   message system, which will function similar to the default codes like
#   \v[n], \c[n], etc. Please see the list of special message codes starting at
#   line 54 for a full idea of what is added. Basically, it gives you greater
#   control over the delivery of a message, allows you to make use of font
#   effects like bolding and italicizing, and allows you to retrieve and
#   display useful data like the names of weapons and armors.
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  ATS Series:
#
#    This script is part of the Advanced Text System series of scripts. These
#   scripts are based off the 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 have 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.
#
#    To find more scripts in the ATS Series, please visit:
#      http://rmrk.net/index.php/topic,44525.0.html
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  Instructions:
#
#    This script is not difficult to use or configure. There are only two
#   configuration options for this script. These are:
#
#      :message_speed
#      :show_fast_speed
#
#   :message_speed allows you to set the default number of frames to wait
#   between drawing each letter in the message window. :show_fast_speed allows
#   you to control the amount it speeds up when the player presses enter. You
#   can gain instructions on setting the default value for both at line 180.
#
#    As with other ATS scripts, you can change the value of these options in
#   game with the following codes in a script call:
#
#      ats_next(:message_option, x)
#      ats_all(:message_option, x)
#
#   Where :message_option is the symbol you want (:message_speed or
#   :show_fast_speed) and x is the value you want to change it to. ats_next
#   will only change it for the very next message, while ats_all will change it
#   for every message to follow.
#++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
#  List of Special Message Codes:
#
#    The default message codes are retained, and this script adds a number of
#   other desirable features. The following is a complete list of the message
#   codes at your disposal. Simply insert them into a Display Message command,
#   Choice Branches, or any other message related system.
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Font Effects:
#
# \fn[fontname] - Change the font to fontname. If you put multiple fontnames
#     separated by commas, then it will take the first one the user has installed
# \fs[n] - Change the font size to n.
# \{ - Increase the font size by 8.
# \} - Decrease the font size by 8.
# \c[n] - Set the colour of the text being drawn to the nth colour of the
#     Windowskin palette. 0 is the normal color and 16 is the system color.
# \hc[RRGGBB] or \c[#RRGGBB] - Set the colour of the text being drawn to any
#     colour, using hexadecimal values. You can set each colour (red, green,
#     blue) to anything from 0-255 (00-FF). You must use hexadecimal values. If
#     so desired, you can add an additional hex value from 00-FF to change the
#     alpha.
# \b     - Turn bold on. Text drawn after this code will be bolded.
# /b     - Turn bold off.
# \i     - Turn italic on. Text drawn after this code will be italicized.
# /i     - Turn italic off.
# \o     - Turn outline on.
# /o     - Turn outline off.
# \s     - Turn shadow on. Text drawn after this code will have a shadow.
# /s     - Turn shadow off.
# \u     - Turn underline on. Text drawn after this code will be underlined.
# /u     - Turn underline off.
# \hl[n] - Turn highlight on. Text drawn after this code will be highlighted
#     with colour n + 1 from the windowskin palette
# /hl OR \hl[0] - Turn highlight off.
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Message Control:
#
# \s[n] - Sets the message speed to wait n frames between drawing every letter.
#     0 is instant.
# \s[+n] - Sets the message speed to wait an additional n frames between drawing
#     every letter.
# \s[-n] - Sets the message speed to wait n less frames between drawing every
#     letter.
# \. - Wait 15 frames before drawing the next character
# \| - Wait 60 frames before drawing the next character
# \w[n] - Wait n frames before drawing the next character
# \! - Pause text and wait for player to press Enter
# \^ - Skip Pause; allows you to close a message window without requiring player
#     input.
# \> - Show line fast.
# \< - Stop showing line fast.
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Replacement Codes:
#
# \p[n] - Draw the name of the actor in the xth position in the party. 1 is
#     the party leader, 2 is the second member, etc.
# \n[n] - Draw the name of the actor with ID n
# \nn[n] - Draw the nickname of the actor with ID n.
# \pid[n] - Draw the ID of the actor in the nth position in the party.
# \ac[n] - Draw the class name of the actor with ID n.
# \al[n] - Draw the level of the actor with ID n.
# \ni[n] - Draw the name of the item with ID n.
# \nw[n] - Draw the name of the weapon with ID n.
# \na[n] - Draw the name of the armor with ID n.
# \ns[n] - Draw the name of the skill with ID n.
# \nt[n] - Draw the name of the state with ID n.
# \nc[n] - Draw the name of the class with ID n.
# \ne[n] - Draw the name of the event with ID n on the current map.
# \nm[n] - Draw the name of the enemy with ID n.
# \nv[n] - Draw the name of the variable with ID n.
# \nsw[n] - Draw the name of the switch with ID n.
# \nl[n] - Draw the name of the element with ID n.
# \nwt[n] - Draw the name of the weapon type with ID n.
# \nat[n] - Draw the name of the armor type with ID n.
# \nst[n] - Draw the name of the skill type with ID n.
# \np[n] - Draw the name of the actor in the nth position in the party.
# \map   - Draw the name of the map the player is currently on.
# \map[n] - Draw the name of the map with ID n.
# \pg - Draws the amount of money the party has.
# \g - Draws the unit of currency.
# \vocab[method] - Will draw whatever Vocab.method returns, if it is a valid
#     method call. Suitable values for method are: level, level_a, hp, hp_a,
#     mp, mp_a, tp, tp_a, fight, escape, attack, guard, item, skill, equip,
#     status, formation, save, game_end, weapon, armor, key_item, equip2,
#     optimize, clear, new_game, continue, shutdown, to_title, cancel,
#     currency_unit
# \vocab[param, n] - Will draw the label for parameter with ID n. 0 => Max HP;

#     6 => Agility; 7 => Luck
# \vocab[etype, n] - Will draw the label for equipment type with ID n.
#     0 => Weapon; 1 => Shield; 2 => Head; 3 => Body; 4 => Accessory
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#  Other Effects:
#
# \$ - Opens a window which shows the party's gold.
# \n - line break
# \i[n] - Draw icon with index n.
# \ii[n] - Draw icon of the item with ID n.

# \s[n,text] - Will only draw text only if the switch with ID n is ON.
# \s![n,text] - Will only draw text only if the switch with ID n is OFF.
# \#{code} - This will evaluate code. So, if you know scipting, you can place
#     any code there and it will draw whatever is returned by it. For instance:
#     \#{$game_system.save_count} would draw the number of times the player has
#     saved the current game.
