Toggle Message Box Visibility

Recommended Posts

Hello Community. I'm trying to create a visual novel with RPG Maker VXAce but I'm missing a basic feature.

For my project I want the player to be able to toggle the visibility of the Message Box by simply pressing a button.

 

I know there are VN-engines on the web but I might need some of the other features of RPG Maker.

Thank's in advance.

You're going to have to provide more information than that.

 

Should players be able to do anything when the box is hidden?

What happens if I press a key that is not the toggle button, when the message box is hidden?

What if I want to skip the scene while the message box is hidden?

Hmm a script that basically could allow you to toggle the hue of the text box or something? I think you'd need a kind of text script for that. I remember XP having a script like that sometime back. I just don't recall who had made it.

 This script will allow to player sets message window visible or unvisible with 
 a key.
 
 Example : Press CTRL to hide message window and repress CTRL to show message 
 window.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
=end

module EFE
  
  KEY = :CTRL

end

class Window_Message < Window_Base
  
  alias efeberk_window_message_update update
  def update
    efeberk_window_message_update
    if Input.trigger?(EFE::KEY)
      self.visible = !self.visible
    end
  end
  
end
