Scene_Biography
Author: Bigace360
Type: Misc


Introduction
This is a script that calls a window that displays different aspects about a character... like their age, height, gender etc. These can be changed though. This script is free to use and edit as long as credit is given to me.


Feature
Shows actors characteristic stats and battler image or imported image. Can also add a background to it now.


Instructions
Insert this script above main, and call it Scene_Biography. Everything is in the module so there's no need to go any further down unless you know what your doing. Also as default, the script uses the battlers set in the database unless you place a image in the picture folder and place _P at the end of the files name.

Demo
Not need

Script
Scene_Biography v2.3

Older versions:
Scene_Biography v1.1


Compatibility
No known issues.


Credits and Thanks
  • Bigace360, for the script

Author's Notes
Enjoy!

Your script link is still formatted incorrectly. You should probably test things before you post them or post that you fixed them :)

The link sort of works; you just have to delete the first http:// and the nonsense letters after it and add a colon to the http// in the appropriate place.

Not my fault, I reformmated like six times, this is getting annoying. Hopefully works this time on your end.

Got it into my main menu, but whenever I try to access it, I get an error message:

Script 'Scene_Biography' line 179: NameError occurred.

uninitialized constant Window_Biography:Bio_Window_Settings

Any ideas?

Um, for some reason I created a typo by adding _Settings to the end of that?? Anyways it should work now.

Rep: +0/-0Level 84
Thanks, that fixed it :) The game no longer crashes but there's another issue; I can't select the character whose biography I want to view. When I choose Biography, it just goes straight in and displays the biography of the most recent character to join the party.

Oh sorry, thats because you didn't put it in the Menu correctly.
Here's a completely edited Main_menu (sorry I got bored)
Main_Menu(Edited)

All the parts that say #ACE(Edit) are the parts I intergrated the Biography into it. I got bored and compressed a bunch of other stuff.

Rep: +0/-0Level 84
Well, I'm getting closer :D I edited like you said and now I can select my main character, but whenever I try to press the down arrow to select another, it just goes straight into the main character's bio again.

Uh you must of edited your menu wrong as I'm not getting that issue.

Very probably, since this is the first time I've tried to do it ;) I'm working off two menus; one is Scene_Menu and the other Update_Scene_Menu (which I need for the Journal script I use, apparently; that one works fine, it was a pure copy-and-paste job).

I've tried editing both a little, but nothing works.  Like I said, this is the first time I've changed the menu myself, so it's hardly surprising I've made mistakes :-[ (not too keen to edit heavily since I'm not sure what I'm doing).  Update_Scene_Menu is the one the game works from, which is hardly surprising I guess.  I tried adding your edits to it, but I still get the same problem.

Anyway, if you get the chance to look through it at some point, I'd be very grateful :)

I have no clue why you removed def update and def update_status, as that is needed, anyways here's a better version.

Here's the menu system from your second spoiler.

s4 = "Status"
s5 = "Journal"
s6 = "Biography"
s7 = "Save"
s8 = "End Game"
@command_window = Window_Command.new(160, [s1, s2, s3, s4, s5, s6, s7, s8])
@command_window.index = @menu_index
(0...3).each {|i| @command_window.disable_item(i)} if $game_party.actors.size == 0
@command_window.disable_item(4) if $game_system.save_disabled

@status_window.x, @status_window.y = 160, 0
# I created a array of the 3 windows, that will dispose and update and so you don't waste lines.
@window = [@command_window, @gold_window, @status_window]
Graphics.transition
loop {Graphics.update; Input.update; update; break if $scene != self}
Graphics.freeze
@window.each {|win| win.dispose}
end
def update

if $game_party.actors.size == 0 && @command_window.index < 4
disable
end
case @command_window.index
$game_system.se_play($data_system.decision_se)
when 0 then $scene = Scene_Item.new
#The reason why this is combined like this is because they all say the same thing, in coding you don't want to repeat your self as it's a waste of line and memory.
when 1,2,3,5 # skill, equipment, status, biography
@command_window.active = false
@status_window.active = true
@status_window.index = 0
when 4 then $scene = Scene_Journal.new
when 6
if $game_system.save_disabled
disable
end
$scene = Scene_Save.new
when 7 then $scene = Scene_End.new
end
end
end
def update_status
if Input.trigger?(Input::B)
$game_system.se_play($data_system.cancel_se)
@command_window.active, @status_window.active = true, false
@status_window.index = -1
elsif Input.trigger?(Input::C)
$game_system.se_play($data_system.decision_se)
case @command_window.index
when 1  # skill
if $game_party.actors[@status_window.index].restriction >= 2
disable
end
$scene = Scene_Skill.new(@status_window.index)
when 2 then $scene = Scene_Equip.new(@status_window.index)
when 3 then $scene = Scene_Status.new(@status_window.index)
when 5 then $scene = Scene_Biography.new(@status_window.index) #ACE(EDIT)
end
end
end
def disable
return $game_system.se_play($data_system.buzzer_se)
end
end

But really unless you need to add anything else, you don't need to do anything else to this script.

I have no clue why they were removed either; like I said, this was a pure copy and paste job :o I don't understand the script, so I don't mess with it :)

Thanks for taking the time to tighten this up though :) I copied and pasted your script, but now when I start the game I get an error message:

Update Scene_Menu line 44: syntax error occurred

(To save time, I copied and pasted the chunk of code with line 44 highlighted.  Any ideas?  Sorry to keep being a pest but I really love this script and want to get it working in my game.  Again, if you get the time, that would be great :))

Hello ^^ I was wondering how to edit the script so that if you chose to change the character's name in the game, the script would notice it instead of it being the basic name. I tried the /N[1] but it didn't work.
