Mouse Friendly Equipment Menu
Release Date: 7/9/11
Can also be found at Chaos-Project
This is basically a small edit of the equipment screen for anyone who uses a mouse script, such as Blizzard's, Ryex's, etc. It would most likely be for those who can't script because this is kind of easy to fix if you can. It doesn't really make sense when I try to explain how it works, but the screenshots show it perfectly. It also allows the player to quickly switch between different weapons/armor/etc. without having to select that equipment part and going through the list again.
-Makes the equipment screen more compatible with a mouse script
-Allows the player to quickly switch between weapons/armor/etc. For example, if you accidentally choose the wrong sword, you can just move right to the next one instead of having to choose the equipped sword and finding the one you wanted.
If you use Fyre's custom equipment screen, use this edit: See instructions on how to install this!
If you use a custom equipment script, you will have to adapt this one to fit whatever your custom script implements.
I used Blizzard's Mouse Controller to test out the script, and it's used in the demo. Other Mouse scripts should have the same problem like Blizzard's did, so this should work for all of them.
This is before my edit is implemented:
This is after my edit is implemented:
Basically you can use the demo to see the quick equipping in action.
If you use the default equipment menu:
Place the script above main and below any mouse script.
If you use Fyre's equipment menu:
Place the edit under his script.
If you use a different equipment menu:
Place my edit under whatever you use, and adapt it accordingly. DO NOT edit the frame update as this is what allows the quick equipping and will glitch the menu if you do.
Q: I use a custom equipment screen, but I can't script that well...
A: Send me a demo containing your custom equipment menu and my edit. I'll gladly do it for you, but make sure I reply or I may not have gotten it.
Q: There's an error in your demo.
A: If you find anything wrong with the script, either in the demo or in your game project, please let me know. I kept running into problems when I put the demo together and I fixed everything I found, but there may always be something...

There was someone of a forum somewhere that brought this problem up. I looked into it because of him/her and came up with this edit.

Blizzard - His mouse controller script is what I used to test my edits.
