Event 029 (Family Meeting) Dialog Issues...
« on: May 05, 2018, 05:52:55 PM »
Here is the event as of right now:

I have only made changes to the event messages. I have not touched anything else.

Everything runs fine up until Message x20. Alma's dialog is entirely skipped here. Her next message is printed in Ramza's dialog box via a ChangeDialog command...

This error only occurs when Ramza's name is above a certain length. I first encountered this when testing with Ramza's name at max length.

...I'm not sure what the question is, but if it wasn't clear enough, lines can only be so long, and yes, "the expectations of others, {Ramza}." is way too lengthy. To be safe, have {Ramza} on its own line.

    Sorry, guess I wasn't specific enough. My issue is that Message x20 isn't ever displayed.

    I fixed the issue in Message x22 already in the most up to date version of the event.

    I can't figure out why this line:
    doesn't actually display the message...

    Did you test it again? Because dialog box sizes are based on future ChangeDialogs as well; the game scans for those to determine the max width needed, so if x0022 is too wide, x0022 being a ChangeDialog of x0020, then yeah, when x0020 tries to draw it won't work and just freeze the game.

    Yes, I did. Still not working.

    I checked that right before I opened the topic.

    **Edit : I found the issue, resolved**

    Next time maybe post what your issue was instead of just saying 'resolved' so others dont make the same mistake...

    Sure.

    When I fixed the the line Xifanie referred to earlier, I missed a {br} tag and just didn't notice it, causing the above to take place.
