Thanks Blank. I am used to toiling in obscurity. Since I finally came to terms with the fact that I will never complete my own game (I hate writing the plot out), I am just focusing on the stuff I enjoy now.

I really like how this is set up. I'm going to credit you for it, but do you mind if I hack it apart myself? My current project uses some different stats (not just names, but different actual hard-coded stats) so it'd really just be an aesthetic layout change.

Some issues with the script:

1) The text runs over in the skills window if you have a decently sized skill name, for example "Sword Mastery" does not fit, which is a pretty reasonable length name for a skill, it gets cut off at the e, so it displays "Sword Maste"

2) The "New skills" display on the skills window adds an "s" to the end of whatever you set your "skills" name to be in the terms section of the database, mine is called "Ability" so when I level up, it says "New Abilitys", the same problem would happen if I called it "Abilities" in the database, it'd end up being "Abilitiess", I could change it to "Skill" and that would work fine, but in my game, I define my abilities as either weapon skills or magic spells, so I dont want the entire category to be called "Skills"

3) Not a problem with the script itself, but, you named the arrow something weird, I had to change it to the proper name of "level_up_arrow" once I got errored out because it was misnamed.

Now that I think about it... I don't need the skills window, so I will be using this, lol <_>

This is a very nice looking script, thanks for making it.

Yes, there are some issues here. I tried to strike a balance between long skill names and window size, so I made it large enough to fit just the longest skill name that is in the database by default. For your case, you can modify one line to make the skill window wider. Everything else will fall into place and automatically rearrange itself.

CODE
SKILL_WINDOW_WIDTH =


Make the width a bit wider there. One thing though, SKILL_WINDOW_WIDTH and STAT_WINDOW_WIDTH cannot add up to be more than 544, the width of the screen, so keep that in mind. I will make the "Skills" title more configurable in a little bit for you. I'll just make it a config option. The arrow name must have been changed when I uploaded it. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make a note at the top of the page.

This is beautiful BigEd, I 've been hoping for something like this for a while. The other level up menu although nice and well done doesn't look as great as this one. Nice work, thanks.

I've found an issue. It doesn't work with KGC's EquipLearnSkill script. My character gains no TP in battle. What to do?

Yeah, as I noted above, this may have issues with other scripts that change what is displayed when a player levels up. I can take a look at it soon (tonight or tomorrow). First try placing my script above the KGC script. Let me know.

nice script man
is there any chance you can make the skill pop-up window to appear only if you learn a new skill/s?
or make it in a new script? whatever is more easy for you smile.gif
and also is there any chance you can chance the faceset + sprite with a moving spriteset? it'll be great if youll make those 2
thanks in advance

Shouldn't be too hard to patch up any compatibility issues. if $imported["scriptname"] yadayadayada. Anyhow, very nice script, Ed. Clean and to the point.

I have a suggestion though: Why not put the configuration variables in their own module? It'll reduce lag *slightly* and you'll have less chance of it conflicting which other scripts that may use similar variables in that fashion.

The compatibility stuff should be simple to do once I get some time. I'll also throw the config vars in a module. When I first made this there was only one or two things that you could configure. As it went on I kept adding things and forgot to do that. I should have some time tonight or tomorrow to fix these various issues.

BTW, thanks for the feedback guys.
