RPG Maker MV 1.6.0 Update is out but…

1.6.0

`RPG Maker MV 1.6.0 Update is out but currently, I recommend against updating if you use a lot of my plugins and/or have big projects being made. For the time being at least (until I get everything working with the new version, which may take some time). If you’ve already updated to 1.6.0, fear not, you can still revert to 1.5.1.

As far as I can tell, 1.6.0 changes a lot things, for better or for worse. File directory structures have changed and whatnot. Performance has been enhanced, but at the cost of quite a few plugins working.

Hold on tight.

The following are changes made in this update from the previous update (RPG Maker MV version 1.5.1).


rpg_core.js

  • Utils.isOptionValid function update
  • Graphics._cssFontLoading boolean update
  • Graphics._updateRealScale function update to improve scaling

rpg_managers.js

  • SceneManager.onKeyDown function updated for F12 button to not take browsers to a new URL window (assuming browser mode)
  • BattleManager.updateEvent updated for its abort check from 2 to 1 of which…
  • BattleManager.checkAbort2 has been removed and has now became BattleManager.checkAbort

rpg_objects.js

  • Game_Interpreter.prototype.command113 (break loop event) is now updated to support multiple depths

rpg_scenes.js

  • Scene_Item.prototype.update function added. Its purpose? To break all the plugins that add new stuff the item scene.

rpg_sprites.js

  • Spriteset_Battle.prototype.overworldBattleback1Name and Spriteset_Battle.prototype.overworldBattleback2Name function updated to return an empty string if its battleback is an empty string.

rpg_windows.js

  • No changes made

Player comfort is a major thing to pay attention to when it comes to designing video games nowadays. RPG’s are no exception either. And inside of RPG’s, the player is usually within a battle a large portion of the time. And for this large portion of the time, players are often waiting for battle animations to finish playing.

This plugin adds in the ability for players to choose how fast they want battle animations to play from inside the options menu. From the default speed, which plays one animation frame per four real frames, to the fastest setting, which plays one animation frame per one real frame, the player now has the option to choose how quickly things progress in battle.

YEP.162 – Advanced Switches and Variables Tutorial – RPG Maker MV

NOTE: This is a tutorial made for the Advanced Switches & Variables plugin.

Many of you have asked what are some more ways we can use this plugin. That’s a very good question because there’s a lot of things you can do with this plugin. However, instead of giving the answers to every single example, it may be better for me to give you the actual Eval codes themselves and the description so you can figure out the things you can do with it, instead. There will be a “possible use” example listed just to give you an idea how things may be used. Hopefully, upon reading the descriptions for each one, you may come up with some ideas or answers to what you are looking for!

Passive States can be a powerful addition to a game, but if they are always active throughout a battle, they can be a little too powerful. Sometimes, you will want to limit the extent at which your passive states will be active by imposing conditional cases upon them. If all of the passive’s conditional cases have been met, then the passive will become active. This plugin adds a multitude of conditional cases for you to be able to use in your game and limit certain passive states from having their effects active at all times.

*NOTE*: This plugin is best used with RPG Maker MV version 1.5.0+. You can still use this plugin with a lower version number, but you will have a much harder time altering the plugin parameters without it.
