Just started using this today, somewhat as a test, and somewhat because I didn't feel like doing any parallex mapping. I must say this is a very good application, and it works like a charm. I'm glad you made the youtube video, it is actually a very good tutorial and overview. I'm also loving the profiles...it helps a lot. So yeah, great job on the SwapXT bulletxt. It works like a charm and I am a loving it. Simple, reliable, and useful. What isn't there to like.

When you choose to not swap the tiles for events, the event tiles' passage settings will still be the swapped passages.

New Way
You can use the RPG Maker editor to edit the passage settings while the respective profile is loaded in the SwapXT editor.

Old Way
Or you can make a duplicate of your project. Then in the duplicate project, in the VX editor, import the tiles you want and edit the passage settings for those tiles. n the /Data/ folder of your project choose system.rvdata and rename it to something else related to your tiles.Then copy this rvdata file to the /Graphics/System/extra_tiles folder. Now when you load the tile profile in SwapXT that you want to edit, you will be able to select the new data file you copied. BEWARE: Do not edit this data in your original project. I always make a duplicate of my project then edit that one. You may mess somethings up if you do it in your original file.

I still do it the old way, this insures everything in the system file that isn't passages remains the same during swaps.


First off, thanks for the reply smile.gif

After reading over it the only thing I seen that I may not have tried was actually making a copy of my project and editing that. I tried something similar a few times before, which was actually making an entirely new project and importing all the tilesets from my game plus the ones I was swapping and using the system.rvdata from that one then I renamed it and put it in the /extra_tiles folder. None of that seemed to work right before but I did manage to screw up my games main passage settings once by editing my original project, so your advice was welcomed and without it I would have never figured out what the real problem was (read on). Also, from reading your post I decided to pay more attention to the "profile" I had loaded in XT. Anyway, after going back over all this again and following your advice to a "T" I STILL had the same problems! Which was I could walk all over tiles that I shouldn't be able to. But this time I managed to figure it out smile.gif

It was the fact that I was editing an untampered duplicate of my project that allowed me to figure it out, so thanks to you. To make a long story short, for some reason if I set the first tile in tile set B to passable, you can walk over all the stuff that should be on the background in the A tilesets... If you set it to non-passable you cannot pass over the stuff on A... The first tile on B needed to be set to the STAR (pass behind) to work properly.

Now I assume this is true on all projects and is part of the functionality of RMVX, am I correct? I never knew this. I have been messing with RPGmaker for years now (although, I just recently started messing with VX) and I can't remember ever coming across this until now. It was just coincidental that I ran into this with a passage swapping tool and that caused needless hours of confusion thinking I wasn't doing something right with SwapXT.

Anyway, all is good now and I am very pleased with the results of this application. Thanks so much to BulletXT for a great App! I will get a lot of use out of it!

- SwapXT has the same compatibility of the previous swapping/script 0.4, this means it's compatible with almost anything out there. A known script that is NOT compatible is "Wall Tile Extension", however a patch may be written from someone and I'll notice you about it.


Please paste it. biggrin.gif

Gorram it. Everybody else says that this is awesome, but I don't have anything which can open a .rb file. Is the script available in any other kind of file?

Thanks for showing me where Winrar is, I have been wondering. But it still isn't opening the script. Even when I download it again. Is the script itself available as either .zip or .rar?

Now I feel like a right plonker. Thanks, it worked. I'll just go hide in a corner now, fiddling with my tilesets.

This application looks perfect for efficient mapping without limits. Congratulations on creating this Bulltxt and many thanks for sharing! It's astonishing that VX really seems to have no limits to anyone with knowlege on Ruby and C++.

This is very great, Mr. BulletXt. Thank you very much.

BUG REPORT
I think I have found a bug in your script, please read below.

I tried this SwapXT.rb and ran a game. I got out to the world map that used different tile chips and a passage setting. I saved, and then load the saved file. The map still looked the same, but the passage setting wasn't. Anyway, I used two switches system like in 0.4 to swap tiles and passages.

I used 0.4 and wltr3565's tile chip update (which probably still exists in your 0.4 thread.) I tried his script again in SwapXT and it worked, problem fixed. I don't dare post his script here, so you may want to ask him or revisit your 0.4 thread yourself in order to fix your script.

Thank you for hearing me out.

Re-Edit:
Never mind, I found a solution.
I found this script, Neo Save System 5, and now it's all ok !

Great job again for your cool SwapXt script, BulletXt !

------------------------

Edit:
Unfortunately this script isn't compatible with NEO SAVE SYSTEM 3 Script.
The problem is the screenshot in the save window:
It shows swapped tiles when I need default ones,
and default tiles when I want swapped ones.
I mean, when I swap tiles, also the save screenshot tiles change.
It looks very bad.
Does anyone know if there's a way to make them compatible ?
Could someone make a compatibility patch ?
Please BulletXt, help me !

------------------------

Old Post:

OMG !!!

YOU ARE A GOD !

This is really better than the old swapping script !

It's just... AWESOME !

Thanks BulletXt ! laugh.gif

Someone should make a real text tutorial. I couldn't follow the video, and whatever I tried didn't work.

(I tried getting help, doing it on my own, nothing worked.)

I can how this would be useful, if it were a bit simpler to use.

Unless someone can tell me how to switch the passage settings of 2 tiles on the fly. That's all I need. Changing passage settings should just be a simple option, I can see how it would be useful. But no, we need to use a whole different program.

So yeah, could someone maybe provide a simple text tutorial for changing passage settings?

@mithos
The Patch doesn't work in this version... I tried it... but i guess its not compatible anymore...



I hope someone could do a patch for Wall Tile Extension Script + Swap XT
These 2 are Vital Scripts that must be installed in all of RPG Maker VX...
Can't continue without Swap XT
Can't continue without WallTile Extension Script either sad.gif
Who could make the 3rd Vital Script that will make this 2 scripts work together and make out(an awesome map)


All in all
This is a very sexy and hot script and program smile.gif
