 Single Quest Title ACE
#1
Single Quest Title ACE

by Kyonides

Introduction

A forumer once asked any of the available scripters to come up with a way to show the current quest's title on screen the same way the map name is displayed on the map.

Well, now it is possible! Grinning

The user also wanted to use some game variables that I hate a lot, but there is one that will hold the title until it gets replaced by a new one.

Here are the list of available Constants:
  • HIDE_WHEN_ZERO - true or false
  • SWITCH_ID - switch in charge or showing or hiding the quest title window
  • VAR_ID - variable holding the quest title
  • WINDOW_X, WINDOW_Y, WINDOW_WIDTH and WINDOW_HEIGHT constants are self evident.

This script has only 2 script calls, the second one is usually optional.
  • Set New Title:
    new_quest_title("Quest Name")
  • Repeat the Most Recent Title:
    repeat_quest_title!

The Script

Code:
# * Single Quest Title ACE * #
#  Scripter : Kyonides Arkanthes
#  2023-05-21

# This scriptlet lets you show the Current Quest Title on the map using a
# given Game Variable. The state of a certain Game Switch determines
# whether or not the window will be visible on screen.

# * Script Calls * #

# - Set New Title
# new_quest_title("Quest Name")

# - Repeat the Most Recent Title
# repeat_quest_title!
