Where's my date? H-Have I been stood up?!

As some of you know, (I did post in the thread but it might be hard to find due to, uh, gyrating avatars) there's been a little setback with the game. Namely that there's so damn many answers and I over-estimated my ability to deal with 50 people omgwhysomany;.;!

That said, I am making headway. I found a great script (well, Nessy found it for me~<3 Just as she made this awesome page~<3 all hail the Nessy!) that allowed the input of information from a text document. Great right? Yeah!

However...

Turns out there is one issue with the script in question - that being that you cannot force line breaks so everything is a run-on sentence that wraps around. This, coupled with the fact that the script creator has an update planned that fixes it (but in the future, as in, not that soon) means I'm probably going to have to do ones that have layout issues manually.

Add to that issue that I don't have as much time this week as I did last week...

I'll do my best to get this done within the week. ;.;

I'm really sorry you're all stuck waiting for love! Soon you'll be able to date your fellow forum-peeps! Promise!

If you need line breaks for easier readability, can you just do a function call? I'm not sure sure about if it would work with a CONDITIONAL BRANCH, but if it's the SCRIPT event-command, I think it should be possible!

The script is supposed to allow a line break with the simple addition of the word Line inside square brackets but it seems to be broken. Maybe I should post it up to see if anyone has any ideas, because it's a great script that cuts down on a ton of work, if only that one thing would actually do what it's supposed to. >.<;

If you can post the script I will correct it! I have just discovered this game and it is too good to not exist yet.

I'd be really grateful if you could fix it! The only issue is the line break - you're supposed to be able to add Line in square brackets and it'd force a line break but for some reason it just won't work - and I tried spaces in all places and all kinds of things. Even tried messing with a copy of the script to see if I could work it out myself (I suck).

Thank you for the offer, even if you can't fix it though. I really appreciate it! ^.^)b

I've waited my whole life for love so far. A few more days won't hurt.

N-Now or after the game comes out? >.<;
Okay I'm on it, the problem doesn't seem so hard but I have to test it. I'll let you know soon.

Heyo, Liberty~ I took a quick look at that External Text script and I cobbled together something that should work (I tested using the Line block and it was working, anyway!)

http://pastebin.com/k44b6Pwq

(I'm using the ASCII diamond character as a placeholder "♦" so as long as no one is using that in their text, it should be okay...)

I hope this helps!!


EDIT: whoop, I'm too late!
Done!
Replace the line

v.gsub!(/\[Line\]/i) {"\n"}

by

v.gsub!("/\[Line\]/i", "\n" )

Don't know who coded this but that's a very random mistake to make.

Oh, nice! While we're on the topic, this script seems incredibly nice to have, I think I'm gonna use it a lot from now on >_>
Haha oops sorry slash, did you see any other problem? Where did you end up using this diamond character?

(Also Liberty if you want anything other than this "Line" thing to do the linebreaks, just let me know, it's trivial to change)

Haha, it's cool, I was just messing around for fun :) It looks like the script takes "Line" and converts it to "\n", but I thought (or this script?) wasn't handling "\n" as a return, so I just switched it out for the diamond, and then added a check for the diamond where it prints out the text and mimicked the script's newline handling (in def self.create_text).
I'm pretty sure no-one is using the diamond so it should be okay. And thank you very much! Really, I only need the most basic version of the script (just words, word wrap and line breaks) so this suits my purposes perfectly! When I get back from babysitting I'll be able to do a lot more work on the project tonight. :DDD

Thank you Hasvers! I just tried it and it works perfectly. ^.^)b

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

You don't have to make up stories. I know your apartment's not really being fumigated every single time I ask you.
