Simple Audio Encryption

This script provides very simple audio encryption. It allows you to store audio files inside the rgss3a archive.

The data is decrypted and created outside of the archive when the game wants to play an audio file.

This means that while it is possible to easily copy the file once the game starts playing it, you can still protect files that they have not managed to unlock during the game.

Moonpearl's Party Interaction

One day I got tired of seeing party members following the hero in a caterpillar like a bunch of perfect idiots, and I thought it was about time something was done about it.

This script allows you to set party members as events on the map that will automatically follow the hero, which also means you can interact with them and even take control of them.

Moonpearl's Daily Life #1 (time and lighting)

Originally designed as a day/night system, the primary focus of this Daily Life project's part is to provide nice-looking variations in ambient lighting, with realistic light sources.

The dynamic lighting effects are also useful if you want to add to the atmosphere of a dark game, even if you don't want day and night cycles.

Moonpearl's Balloon Messages

I could never stand how most messages system rely on special commands inside messages. At first I just wanted to design a fully event-controlled messages system, which I did. Then, while I was at it, I though it might be nice to make proper balloons, instead of the ugly ones you tend to see elsewhere.

So here you are: nice balloons along with a nice interface.

Moonpearl's Animated Battlers

One day I got tired of seeing stiff dolls clumsily bashing at each others, and I decided it was time to put some life in battles.

This script makes actors jump before attacking, move away when dodging, hurl foes in the air, scream in pains when struck, taunt their enemy, and much more.

Camera Control Techniques for your Game

Sometimes, you may want to focus the camera on a different object, or an arbitrary position on the map. For cut-scenes where the player is not involved, for example, you would typically have to set the player's graphic to transparent and then move the player to the cut-scene's location.  After the cut-scene is over, you would then move the player back to where they were.
