 Refreshing original skills names
#1
Hey everyone!
I'm using Skills That Consume Items Ver 1.00a by Cogwheel modified to use skill ID rather that its name. Also, I have script that lets me put item amount in almost every place with command \It[#] (it also produces stack level too deep error with game resetting as side effect, but it's ok for now). So I have that skill e.g., "Poisonous Slash [Icon] 0/1", and its works, but only once... so its actually doesn't. Name of the skill is adjusted just once, when I will see it in any window for the first time. If I will currently have 6 poisons it will be "Poisonous Slash [Icon] 6/1" and it won't change even if poisons amount will. So original name of the skill is "Poisonous Slash [Icon] \It[#]/1", but after first look it permanently replaces \It[#] with number and command can't be used again. So I figured out that there should be the way to remember original name of the skill and "refresh" it after each attack/item use. This way skill name would always adjust to the current item amount in possession. I tried to script it by myself, but my scripting skills are close to 0. I'm becoming better in modifying scripts but I don't really have skills to write them. Can someone help me with that? Or maybe someone have different idea to solve the problem with item name adjustment?

So here you have scripts:

      unless used
        # Play buzzer SE
        $game_system.se_play($data_system.buzzer_se)
      end
      return
    end
  end
end

This is the modification that I use to put item amount in skill name
Code:
class Bitmap
alias variable_sub draw_text
  def draw_text(*args)
   index = args[0].is_a?(Rect) ? 1 : 4
   args[index].gsub!(/\\[Vv]\[([0-9]+)\]/) { $game_variables[$1.to_i] }
   args[index].gsub!(/\\[Ii]t\[([0-9]+)\]/) { $game_party.item_number($1.to_i) }
   variable_sub(*args)
end
end

This is how it looks during battle.

The problem seems to be you're permanently modifying the text with gsub! instead of gsub. Of course, gsub doesn't modify the string permanently so you gotta assign it to the args array manually. Since it would be treated as a new string, the tags you've been using would not disappear, and they would be parsed every single time that comment is read by the game engine.
"For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ," 1 Thessalonians 5:9

Maranatha!

The Internet might be either your friend or enemy. It just depends on whether or not she has a bad hair day.

I still didn't know what to do. The script I was using isn't mine, I found it as no copyrighted advice for someone's else request (as far as I remember), but its not important anymore, since I'm not using it now. I have tried to adjust this script with my close-to-zero programming skills but it was futile, so I tried to find the author of the script I've used to credit him. I couldn't find it, but I've found different script instead, and this one works for me Very happy + Tongue sticking out
