Message Above Head Not Working

Discussion in 'MV Support' started by Naterkix, Dec 28, 2018.

  1. Okay, so, I couldn't find anything asked by anyone else so I'll ask myself.

    I'm wanting to use Yanfly's extended message plugin to make it show the text box above that characters head. I couldn't get \msgevent[x] to work so I tried \autoevent[x] and got this:

    I tried messing with some things but can't figure out why it's no above the characters head instead of their entire body. The video tutorial-thing for the plugin has it showing up above it rather than whatever's going on for me. Any ideas or help would be much appreciated since I'm going back and adding it to earlier text and want to get this figured out before any more text is made.

    Made a very small mod for this. (cool)

    Yanfly's Message Ext1 CTB_Mod: Click Here to download

    Place this below yanfly's.

    Also if you didn't know already... to adjust the X position of the name box...

    Please let me know how it goes.
    Works nicely for me. (cute)(thumbsup)

    Hooway, it works! No idea what that changed but you're amazing. If I had a way to teleport a cookie of your choosing directly onto your desk, I totally would.

    Also, the Buffer box thing was another thing I messed with while trying to figure this out. I think it was still in a "finagled" state when the screenshot was taken for the first post.

    Well, now \autoevent[0] (to show above the player) is doing the same thing...
  4. lol aww was no biggy, just added/changed a few lines of code. Happy to help. (cool)(thumbsup)

    Woops forgot about that... updated the mod.

    Tada! Click here to download.

    Let me know how it goes.

  5. Okay, so it's definitely working, but:

    Do you think the best thing to do here would be to resize the character portraits (which are the default size, assuming doing so wouldn't break anything) or is there some other code/setting that'd offset the box a bit? I tried setting "Auto Row Full Face" to false but that just cut off everything but, like, the forehead.

    I adjusted the padding and character portrait height in the Yanfly core settings and got this (not sure why this one's kinda blurry...):

    Figured I'd show it so nobody needs to do anymore addons or anything since this'll work fine. Thanks for the stuff ngain though; it'll be super-helpful going forward. I was gonna add tis to the previous post but the post-maker-thing got upset at me for... reasons? Maybe editing that far out isn't allowed due to the "mod okays before people can see" or something.

    I edited the padding in the settings and got it to look fine that way. Thanks for all the help. I'd like to add you to the credits file, so would that be CT_Bolt?

    Sorry for the delay. Glad to see you got it working nicely.
    Yup CT_Bolt would be fine. Thanks for the credit.

    I could write a more customize-able addon for this though if you'd like. With parameter settings for 'Y' location settings.
  7. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, yeah, that'd be great. I'm sure having more control over those will come in rather handy.
