 Help modifying a script
#1
Hello!

I have a script that I'm trying to modify that creats a Threat System, so the enemies will focus their attacks on the party member with most threat. During the battle a window appears showing the threat level of each party member. Here is a screen shot:

What I'm trying to do is removing this window and showing an image next to the party member with most threat. I made a fast edition to show how it would look:
https://i.imgur.com/sGXo6p0.png

Can somoene help me with what I should do to make an image appear and change positions depending on who have the highest threat value? All i know is that removing the end of the code removes the window.

Here is the code:
Code:
module ThreatConfig

ROFL. Nice little devil face saying 'Threat'

Haven't had much time to look at it. The magic is actually in the window that renders the Threat scores as indicated in your first screenshot. But instead of making a full 'visible' window, I would make the background & borders invisible and have it drawn horizontally along the bottom edge to overlap the battlers. And I would use the same actor_x value used to render where the battlers are to draw your devil-dude in the window. instead of the scores themselves.

You'd have to 'sort' who the highest threat would be... based on the same generated score. And only show the top scorers. If any have '0' scores, ensure that no devil-dude shows. That's the issue.

The very last section of the code, within Scene_Battle, only activates/deactivates the window and updates it when needed. Without it, there is no Threat system in use at all.

Haha, thanks! xD

Actually your idea of making the window appear horizontally is very good and less troublesome than making the image appear and move (i think). I managed to remove the background and borders with @threat_win.opacity = 0 and I removed the party member's names commenting self.contents.draw_text(0, i*H, self.width-32, H, a.name), but I don't know exactly how would I change the text color to red and how to position each value horizontally on the right place  Confused

Two points.

The Game_Actor class has a method (or def) called screen_x. The method calculates and returns the 'x' position where your battler belongs in the battle-status window. This would be your system to position it horizontally.

The normal code that positions the threat level is
Code:
def refresh
   self.contents.clear
   actors.each_with_index {|a, i|
   self.contents.draw_text(0, i*H, self.width-32, H, a.name)
   self.contents.draw_text(0, i*H, self.width-32, H, @threats[i].to_s, 2)
   }
end
And obviously, if the threat is over the battler, you don't need the name.... so the first 'self.contents.draw_text' isn't needed. You may wanna try this:

Code:
def refresh
   self.contents.clear
   actors.each_with_index {|a, i|
   self.contents.draw_text(a.screen_x, 0, self.width-32, H, @threats[i].to_s, 2)
   }
end

Notice that I use 'a.screen_x' The a is the individual 'actor' in the actors array. And the a.screen_x refers to the x-location that the given actor needs to be placed.

self.contents.font.color = Color(255,0,0,255) .... that's how you set a font color to red. Using RGBA standards (Red Green Blue Alpha/opacity) in a range of 0-255 each.

I managed to change the color to red, but when I try using:


Code:
def refresh
  self.contents.clear
  actors.each_with_index {|a, i|
  self.contents.draw_text(a.screen_x, 0, self.width-32, H, @threats[i].to_s, 2)
  }
end

the threat values disappear  Confused

Know what? My bad. The 'self.width-32' is taking the width of the whole window (640 across). The 'h' (or height) should be 32 . And the very last value ( ,2) ) assumes the text is on the right-most area. In essence, it is drawing the threat on the very edge at the right ... if not off the screen. Change the 'self.width-32' into 160, and the very last '2' into a '1'.

Code:
self.contents.draw_text(a.screen_x, 0, 160, 32, @threats[i].to_s, 1)

Draw text commands are like this
( X-position, Y-position, width-area, height-of-area, the text, [optional alignment] )
or
( [defined rectangle value], the text, [optional alignment] )

** The '160' is the width of the screen (or 640) divided by 4 (your party size).
** The '32' is the normal height used in a draw-text line. Set it to 16, and you'd likely just see the top half of the text.
** The '1' is the alignment (0 is left justified by default, 1 is centered, 2 is right justified)

Of course, I'm assuming you made the 'threat window stretch across the whole battlesystem screen for this to fit.

Thanks, I think I understood how it works! I didn't had a clue what those numbers inside the () meant, now it's making more sense

The problem was that I hadn't stretched the threat window. Now that i stretched it and modified the code like you said it's working perfectly!   Very cheery

Great! It would probably have been better if I didn't answer questions while at work, away from my RMXP software. Tongue sticking out

Still, I like the little devil dude. That would probably take a little more work to have it first 'determine' who has the highest score (or scores if a tie), and use the bitmap drawing code to splat him over the battler. That would entail loading the bitmap from your project (probably in the pictures folder), setting its location, and pasting it within. Sorta like:
Code:
# Here, we get the graphic of the Threat Devil Dude, and it's coordinates
ddudebmp       RPG::Cache.picture("DevilDude")  # Load the pic
ddude_x       = a.screen_x                      # Using 'a' for the actor
ddude_y       = 0                               # 0 position is top of window
ddude_width   = ddudebmp.width                  # The graphic's width
ddude_height  = ddudebmp.height                 # The Graphic's height

# Here, we make the rectangle drawing area based on the devil dude's dimensions
# Rectangle is defined by ( x, y, width, height) of the area
ddude_rect = Rect.new(0, 0, ddude_width, ddude_height)

# Here, we draw it into the x/y coordinates,
# Blt (or blit) needs: x-position, y-position, the graphic, and rectangle area)
self.contents.blt(ddude_x, ddude_y, ddudebmp, ddude_rect)

But that's the basics, and ya need to deal with sorting WHO gets the hightest threat, and 'IF' it is the highest threat, draw it. Skip if not the highest threat.
