You guys ever played The Elder Scrolls? You know how you can pick up a random book and read it? This is what i want in RMVX. And before you say "Hey there big guy you can Event that." All i gotta say is...."Yeah, i know."
Here we go, im going to make this simple:
I have the book layout Located here:
(Im way too good at ripping files)
Anyway so heres how i think this should go down.
All the books use the same layout, so their is essentially only one Picture file. To change what the different books say, you go into the script and it aligns it to fit the book borders. So a little something like this:
(ignoring obvious scripting layout)
Book ID = 1 Book name = "The Eastern Kingdoms" FONTSTYLE = "Arial, 12" <<<Uses desired font. BOOKLAYOUT = "BOOK.png" <<<GRABS IT FROM SPECIFIC FOLDER so that way different colored books can be used if user wishes. Page 1 = "The Eastern Kingdoms, Written by BLAH" Page 2 = "The Eastern Kingdoms are comprized of four provinces, Redwynn, Callik, Gant, and Shadowfall" Page 3 = "The Redwynn Province is home to the High Elves who seek knowledge and peace"
Im sure you get the point. I would have taken on this task myself but page alignments have me clueless.
Other things needed/Wanted:
- Turn page back and forth. - Show page number - Imprint simple pictures, like maps of the provinces on the pages. - Possibility of unlimited books. (seperated with ID's ....obviously) - uhhhh.....whatever else you can add to make it look perrty.
If someone wants jump on board for making this possibly awesome script i would be happy!
And to clarify one point:
I am NOT wanting a notebook here. i am wanting prewritten books that cannot be altered. ONLY VIEWED/READ.

I no longer support my old blog (http://omegas7.wordpress.com), so started a new one, and your request shall be the first submission 0.o http://omegas7.blogspot.com/
Hope it helps. Hope you don't mind I used your ripped image for the demo though. I'm on my way to post the script here too for support.
NO ITS NOT OK! TAKE THAT SH%T DOWN NOW!
lol im testing it out now.
Once again Omegas7 you have come to my aide! ...i also have a scroll pic i ripped too. You want me to post that? That way we can have a book call script and possibly a scroll one? as in single paper centered on screen.
(i dont have internet so sorry for late responses)
OMFG its just like i imagined it! You are a god of scripting my friend. Because of this, i will run home immediatly and grab my scroll layout for you to use. (if you wish) i think it would add more depth to the numerous possibilities.
BACK TO BUMMING WIFI FTW:
Here is one:
And here is another which may need to be centered in gimp...its not as good as the other one imo though.
Its strictly up to you if you wish to implement them or not.
