To swim faster, press Shift key while swimming, but bear in mind that this makes the stamina deplete faster. This script is currently compatible with 1st person mode only.

RPG Menu

The options screen give player a possibility to change font size, cursor behaviour, set the info text of RPG Menu and Shop Menu on/off and change the style of dialogue in the game. The behaviour of the menu depends on the other RPG scripts on the map.

Time doors

This script creates a set of doors that are operated by time. Charity note: This script was inspired by my friends who managed to lock themselves outside student association's sauna that has an electronic lock that locks after 10 PM.

Modified gamedata.lua for Save/Load system

The RPG and Quest scripts have their own Save/Load system which was created before the official one. To make the official one compatible with the RPG and Quest scripts, copy this version of the gamedata.lua file to you titlesbank folder. Note: This works if you have the latest versions of the RPG scripts and Quest scripts. If you have only the RPG scripts, please open the lua file and uncomment part that defines the Quest tables at the beginning of the file. Note: Doing this with the Quests scripts active, some of the tables get defined as empty tables which returns error. Please follow the instructions carefully.

8-frame animation

This script replaces the default 4-direction, 4-frame animation pattern with a 8-frame one, which provides smoother animation and enables the use of character models with more complex animation patterns (e.g. models by Pioneer Valley Games).

Advanced movement and animation

An advanced version of the above script. This script replaces the default 4-direction, 4-frame animation pattern with a 8-direction, 8-frame system with a dash function. Unfortunately multi-animation function works only with the player character. Since I've lost my interest for the game project this script was originally intended to, the script remains partly unfinished. For player character, it works fine though.

Custom menu system

It adds attribute and status information to the skill menu and location window and order commands to the main menu and does slight changes to arrangement of things in main menu and status screens.
