GENERAL

Updated version v1.2.0! More info in devlog.

"Final Fantasy II" is a memorable JRPG from the '90's era. This game had a clean and polished bestiary that could be used in different types of games. You can see an example of the original inside this video:

MAIN FEATURES:

- Bestiary system inspired to Final Fantasy II within list and showcase scenes.

- Added enemy death counter usable inside the details window and whenever you want. Every time an enemy is killed, the number of deaths are added to the counter registered to the enemyId.

- Highly customizable battlebacks and enemy details window line per line;

NOTETAGS:

You can set custom battleback1 and battleback2 for single enemies inside the notebox of the enemies' database's entries. Those images are taken from the folders img/battlebacks1/ and img/battlebacks2/. 

Notetags are: 

<BestiaryBB1: filename>

<BestiaryBB2: filename>

PLUGIN PARAMETERS:

BESTIARY NAME -> The name shown in the header window of the bestiary and as command menu;

BESTIARY COMPLETITION FORMAT -> The string shown in the completition window. The "%1" is replaced by completition percent.

DEFAULT MONSTER BATTLEBACKS 1 AND 2: Those are the default battlebacks applied if notetags for enemies battlebacks are nout used.

LOCKED TEXT -> This is the string text used when an enemy entry is still not unlocked.

SHOW IN MENU -> Bool that determines if the bestiary command is shown inside the menu by default;

INFO WINDOW LINES -> Those are the list of lines shown inside the details' window inside the enemy close-up.


Each entry represents a line inside the details' window. Entries are composed by Line Name (the actual parameter name) and the Value that is the value shown on the right of the Line Name.

The Value entry is a string that needs to be assigned to the text variable. Both Line Name and Value can use escape characters/codes.

Moreover, you can use the variables:

enemyId -> Access to the enemy id of the current enemy entry;

enemy -> Using this variable, you can access to the current enemy properties.


PLUGIN COMMANDS:

This plugin is provided by two plugin commands:

FORCE UNLOCK BEAST -> Using this plugin command you can forcefully unlock a monster inside the bestiary.

SHOW BESTIARY IN MENU -> You can decide if showing/hiding the "BESTIARY" command from the game menu.


PLUGIN COMPATIBILITY:

This plugin should be compatible with VisuStella's core's plugins and It should not give problems with other plugins if they do not affect intensively default RPG MAKER MZ library.

Update v1.1.0:

Added a better compatibility for VisuMZ_1_MainMenuCore.js. If this plugin is available inside your plugin manager the "Show In Menu?" parameters will not add automatically the "Bestiary" command in menu. Otherwise, you can add it through the parameters of the MainMenuCore. Here you are some default settings you can use.

Settings for Command Window List plugin parameter:

{"Symbol:str":"_bestiary","Icon:num":"50","TextStr:str":"Bestiary","TextJS:func":"\"\"","ShowJS:func":"\"return !!$gameSystem._showBestiary\"","EnableJS:func":"\"return true\"","ExtJS:func":"\"return null;\"","CallHandlerJS:func":"\"SceneManager.push(Scene_Bestiary)\"","PersonalHandlerJS:func":"\"\""}

However, you can edit those settings the way you want if you have the knowledge for doing so. For example, the "$gameSystem._showInMenu" could be used for determining if the command is enabled instead of determining the command visibility in menu if you need to do something different.

RPG MAKER VERSION:

The plugin is developed on Rpg Maker MZ - Version 1.3.0 and with the related PIXI.js Version 5.2.4. 

This plugin is NOT compatible with RPG MAKER MV.

Good evening! Thanks a lot for all of your cool new features, fixes and additions; I enjoyed them very much! However, I still experience one problem - background doesn't scale to my screen's width (my game runs in 1280*720). Instead, it scales to its height, just as you mentioned in devlog. I would very appreciate the existence of an option that allows you to switch between the two. Other than that, stellar work, as always!

The text in bestiary scene itself has also moved to the right somehow. Not sure if this is intended.

Good day!
The plugin works perfectly, and I like it very much, but can you include textcodes support? I want to add come colour to the text.
I'm a little discomposed by plugin requesting enemy sprites to be included in img\enemy folder, while my game draws them from img\sv_enemy. It might bloat the filesize very much.
Also, the backgrounds are not scaled to the screen size if not 1:1 equal with background's resolution.

Looking at the screen seems a bug related to a Visustella's plugin. I'm going to give a test within the core plugins to see if I can replicate.

Thank you for reporting!

You Will find a parameter config for the Visustella MenuCore

I have added a Better compatibility with VisuStella MenuCore, allowing developers to add the command through the parametera of the menu core. So, when Visu Menù Core Is in the project, the "Show In Menù" parameters Will Just be used as a flag.
