Test Play Setup
-Tsukihime

This script allows you to set some data when starting a new game, such as during test play. Basically, start-up scripts.

It allows you to specify starting information without having to change your project (eg: change your starting location, or initial levels), and you don't have to use the in-game switch/variable debug menu to set things up.

Things like
-setting switches
-setting variables
-setting actor levels
-setting player start location

If you think something would be useful to add, just mention it and I might add it so everyone else can use it as well without having to write it themselves.

Additions are being added as I think of things that are trivial but should not require you to go through extra effort just to accomplish.

Usage

Just add some custom values for the appropriate data.
For example, if you want to set switches 2, 3, and 7 when the game starts, you would just go to the Switches hash and say

Switches = {
   2 => true,
   3 => true,
   7 => true
}

The comments describe the format of the input. They are all hashes for the most part.

Features

-title skip
-set framerate
-set game resolution
-set switches
-set variables
-set starting location
-adding party members
-adding gold
-adding all items, weapons, and armors
-set actor levels

Extension

In some programs, they allow you to save configuration profiles so that you can save settings in some format and then just load them up when you need it.

I'm thinking of providing some way to do that as well, using a spreadsheet file as the main source of input. But that's just an idea I haven't thought of the best way to implement it.

This script has been updated with a non-blocking testplay window.
That means you can edit your project while testplaying the game.

This is fantastic. Saves from having to create a lot of events in the game to set certain triggers. Couple this with a Debug script that has key triggers and testing becomes a breeze. Thanks Tsuki.

I have not implemented that yet. It is a matter of reloading the data files at run-time.

Very handy script! Thanks much for making it!

 

The only trouble I'm having with it though, is it keeps playing the BGM music from the main title screen. (The game loads and at the title screen, BGM 1 plays. Upon selecting New Game, the BGM 1 continues to play [[No fade in/out or short pause between.]]) IS it perhaps because the first map you go to while starting a new game, has no BGM music? :o

Doesn't happen to me when my starting map doesn't have any BGM, but this is only for testing purposes so I'm not sure if that makes that much of a difference.
