RPG Maker VX: Text Script
Modern Algebra has conceived a truly wonderful script for RPG Maker VX. Here’s a very limited list of the features of this script:
Here’s a list of some of the features available in this script:
1. Animated facesets
2. Put faces in a window
3. Variable letter by letter speed
4. Set window to all kind of different sizes and positions
5. All sorts of text effects such as bold, italic, shadow, underline, highlight and hex coloring.
6. Graphic Novel Support
7. And a whole lot more…
Now this list is by no means extensive as listing everything the script can actually do would make this article a fair bit too long.

Using the Script (RPG Maker VX Text Script)
Using this script is really simple. In the actual script, you’ll find all the commands starting at the line #160. All you need to do is to use those commands in your RPG Maker VX.
Here’s a quick example to demonstrate.
Let’s imagine that I want to display the content of a treasure chest. I’ll need to use the \i[x] command in order to do so (the “x" is the icon ID you’d like to display in your chest).
So I’ll simply add the command in a normal text input like so:
Note: No matter what kind of function of the script you'd like to use, you'll quickly notice that all you need to do most of the time is to use the \ or the / followed by a letter or a combination of letter. Once you know this, it's all a matter of remembering which code does what but you can always access this information in the script database.
All we have left to do is to launch the game to see the final result:
Congratulations, you’ve done it!
