Hiring RMMV scripter

I need one plugin for RPGMaker MV that doesn't seem to exist, so I'm willing to pay for it, if someone could do it for me.

It's a name input script with the following specifications:

1- Typing instead of picking letters.
2- Doesn't bug with confirm keys (like A or SPACE).
3- Customizable font.
4- No character face.
6- Doesn't blur the rest of the screen.
5- Doesn't clash with my other plug-ins (I'm using a whole bunch).

I already have plug-ins that do some of these things, but not all.

[SCRIPTING] [RMMV] Custom name input

I want to make a "note to self" system, which basically lets you write anything and it's displayed on the screen as part of the HUD. I want to do it by character name. I already have a script that allows me to display a character name as HUD, but I can't seem to find a usable custom name input script. Because it can't look like a name input, it should be as simple and clean as possible, just "Type something" and the letters below or a typing space.

Also, the scripts I've already tried don't follow the rest of the game's font.

[RMMV] [SCRIPTING] Problem with HUD Maker

So I'm using this HUD Maker, which is really awesome:

But there's a huge annoyance I can't seem to overcome: when I display any messages, all HUD texts get gray and blurry, like this:



I know zerou about scripting, and I haven't found any internal options that could let me change that. Ideas?

[SCRIPTING] [RMMV]

I'm starting my venture into RPGMaker MV, and just discovered the awesomeness of plugins. I downloaded the Orange HUD plugin, and it's lovely and simple. But I want to do minor tweaks in it, but I have no idea how (I mean, I tried messing with the script, but it didn't work). Would anyone help me?

I'm using The Orange HUD Main plugin, the HUDLine plugin, and the HUDClock plugin. What I want to do is:

- Remove the outline from the font.
- Remove the seconds from the time (just hour:minutes).


I want to remove the outline to make it compatible with another plugin I'm using which is

[RMVX ACE] Non player event collision

Here's approximately what I want to do:

Imagine a map full of events in two categories: blue and red.
Each will have their own movement routines.
And I want specific commands to be triggered when a red event touches another red event, and a different commands when red touches blue. And another when blue touches blue.
None of these events are the player.


What comes to mind is having each event store his X/Y coordinates on variables, and have zillions of branches checking if that event has touched each other event. But that is a ton of work, hopefully unnecessary.

Is there a way to do it with commands? If not, with scripts?

Btw, I'll be using many different types of events, not just "red" and "blue". I said that just to make my question simpler.

How to restart

I haven't made any games since 2013. I purchased RMVXAce, but never made any game with it. Sometimes I think about going back to game making, but the doubt that haunts me is this:

What engine to use? I'm mostly worried about compatibility. I'm Always confused about which versions of RM are most compatible with newest Windows versions. Or if newer RM versions also run on other systems. The easiest option for me would be to make a game on RMVXAce, but maybe it's worth it buying the newest RM? Forgot the name... or maybe RM isn't even worth it anymore and I should learn another game engine (especially considering the games I make are not really RPGs)? I'm open to all sorts of opinions.

Screen Resolution problems

I bought a new computer, it runs Windows 10 and my monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080. Whenever I run any RPGMaker game, either VX Ace or 2k3 (the versions I have), the game image appears stretched. Changing my computer screen resolution doesn't make a difference, even if I change it to a 4:3 rate (when I run the game, it fills the entire screen again).

Any ideas?

Commercial games and creativity

People often tell me I should try making money out of my games. My answer always is: I would never do that. And the reason is: I feel that from the moment I decide to make a game meant to be SOLD instead of freely distributed, it would affect my decision making in ways that would make the game less daring, more conservative, less creative, and overall of a lesser quality. Of course I tend to worry about what will people think of my game, but I never had to worry whether people would buy my game, or HOW MANY people would buy it.

People usually tell me I'm wrong, that one thing is not related to the other. But today I came acrosse the following scientific paper that seems to support my idea:

"individuals given rewards seem to work harder and produce more activity, but the activity is of a lower quality, contains more errors, and is more stereotyped and less creative than the work of comparable nonrewarded subjects working on the same problems". [LINK TO PAPER]

Help me with an experiment

Hello,

I am testing an experiment, and I need help from anyone willing to help.

In order to participate, download the following file:
https://rpgmaker.net/users/calunio/locker/EXPTYPE1.rar

Unzip it and run the executable. It contains all the instructions you need. The whole thing should take between 5 and 10 minutes.

I will answer questions regarding what it's about once I'm finished.

Thanks in advance!

Games with battlers facing up

In my game, the battling sprites will be facing up. I'm spriting battlers in battle stances facing up, but it's tricky. Do you guys know of any games in which battlers are facing up, so I can use their poses as references? Something like Fantasy Star, except I need full bodies and in battle poses.

This is what I have so far.


I think it looks ok, but her left arm looks strange, but I'm not sure how it should be!
