#  Galv's Move Route Extras
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  For: RPGMAKER VX ACE
#  Version 1.9
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  2013-07-30 - Version 1.9 - added move toward and away from x,y
#  2013-04-25 - Version 1.8 - added turn toward event
#  2013-03-22 - Version 1.7 - move randomly only in region id's specified
#  2013-03-14 - Version 1.6 - added activating other events
#  2013-03-14 - Version 1.5 - fixed a bug with jumping to xy, added jump forward
#  2013-03-12 - Version 1.4 - added random wait and play animation
#  2013-03-12 - Version 1.3 - added changing priortiy level
#  2013-03-12 - Version 1.2 - added repeating multiple commands
#  2013-03-12 - Version 1.1 - added fading in/out and repeating move commands
#  2013-03-12 - Version 1.0 - release
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  This script was written to fill some gaps the move route commands left out.
#  Script commands can be used in move routes (for events and player) to:
#  - Jump to x,y coordinates on the map
#  - Jump to an event's or player's current location
#  - Jump forward (the direction currently facing) x number of tiles
#  - Move toward or away from an event
#  - Move toward or away from x,y location
#  - Turn self switches on and off
#  - Change charset to any pose without that 'visible turning frame'
#  - Repeat move commands
#  - Change the priority level (under, same as, above player)
#  - Play animation/balloon
#  - Activate an event below or in front of
#  - Move in a random direction only on a specified region
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#

    Awesmoe script!

  2. magic2345 says:

    So useful

  3. This is just awesome! You are my hero!

  4. PandaMaru says:

    Thank you so much, it helps a lot!
    Greetings from Germany

  5. Patrick says:

    I keep getting ‘uninitialized constant Object::Game_CharacterBase’ and I’m not a Ruby programmer so I’m not sure how to fix this. Any help?

  6. Patrick says:

    Ok, I did that, now it’s saying ‘undefined method ‘move_toward_xy’ for #

    I’m assuming I’m using the method incorrectly?

  7. Tweaksource says:

    I was using this script, which is great, with no issues. Until I went through a seemingly non-related door (made using the Door quick event). Now every time I go through a door I get this error:

    Script ‘Move_Routes_Extras’ line 252: NoMethodError occurred.
    undefined method `>’ for nil:NilClass

    Line 252 is:

    if @crepeat_next > 0

    It looks ok to me. I even retyped it just to be sure there wasn’t some weird Copy/Paste character issue.

    Any ideas?

  8. peacesmoke says:

    Exactly correct! Thank you very much!

  9. ally says:

    how do i call the script on so confused

  10. Lax says:

    I LOVE YOU GALV. THIS IS A CORE FEATURE!

  11. That would be great, if variable option is there. Variable (X) = number then show ballon, for example. Thanks btw Galv :) I hope u read it.

  12. Matthew Keogh says:

    Hello Mr. Galv. Your script saved all my issues. I was beginning to lose hope. Thank you so much. When I release the project I’ll make sure to mention you!

  13. Jacob says:

    Hi, I was using the balloon() method but began running into an error. When I moved far away from an event with a balloon icon that repeated, and then returned to the event, the program crashed with:

    Script ‘Sprite_Character’ line 190: NoMethodError occurred. Undefined method ‘x=’ for nil:NilClass.

    I’m not much of a ruby programmer, but my fix was to update ‘update_balloon’ in Sprite_Character with a check to make sure the sprite isn’t nil:

    if @balloon_duration > 0 && @balloon_sprite

    Regards,

    Jacob

    I have an error when trying to playtest the game. A screen pops up saying: Script ‘Move Route Extras’ line 113: NameError occurred. uninitialized constant Object::Game_CharacterBase

  15. Klubii says:

    HOW DO I USE THE FREAKING set_char THING!?!? I DON’T KNOW WHAT ORDER THE COLOUMS ARE IN PLEEEEEAASE HELP ME

    • Galv says:

      Please calm down… That is not the way to ask anyone for help.
      Here’s an image that might help: http://i.imgur.com/oOatPg5.png
      The script call: set_char(“Charset”,index,col,dir)
      index is the green number
      col is the “P” blue number (P stands for pattern which is the same as column)
      dir is the “D” red number

      I recommend doing some research into how charactersets work.

      • Klubii says:

        Sorry, I have like really bad frustration issues, figured that out too, thanks anyway again. P.S. Great addon! :D

  16. Mars says:

    So, all the commands work as of my current knowledge, but for some reason, normal movement doesn’t work anymore. Is there any particular reason this could be happening?

  17. linkfxFX says:

    How can you chain move commands with this script? Say I want to do, consecutively:

    move_toward_xy(29,26)
    move_toward_xy(65,33)
    move_toward_xy(14,18)

    Where you arrive at the previous destination before following up with the next movement? Is this possible? The script doesnt seem to wait between calls, so all three process immediately and the event is routed from the initial position to the last position instead of following the route.

    Thanks!

  18. Mike says:

    Quick question: When I try to use the move_toward_xy(4,8) it says
    “move_toward_xy is not defined”
    I’ve never used the script functionality of RPG maker. I have turned on your plugin.. any ideas of what I’m forgetting?
    Thanks!

  19. viviatpeace says:

    Hi there! Was just wondering:
    used your script for set_char. Worked like a charm…only the sprite stays for a frame or two, then switches to the next one over (for example, Using “Damage1”,5,3,4 and it switches to “Damage1”,5,2,4 after a frame or two).
    Is there a fix for this? I made sure to copy the code word for word…do you know what the issue could be?
