Tutorial search - RMXP - Help request

First off, to avoid the possibility of a poor first impression on the forum, I spent a lot of my time searching both the forums here, as well as Google in hopes I would be able to find something suitable. Obviously, since I'm posting this request, I came up with nothing...

I searched long and hard for a beginner's guide to scripting within RMXP and found out the best place to start was with Ruby. I then searched for any possible guides and tutorials (for beginners) regarding Ruby. No luck...

After spending a few short minutes of quietly sobbing to myself and rocking back and forth, I gave into my last possible option, asking you for help. If anyone knows of any tutorials to help me get started, I would greatly appreciate you posting the link(s) here.

I'm just starting to use the RMXP, so saying I'm a beginner may be giving myself too much credit. Anyways, thank you guys in advance! (Unless I get flamed and/or ignored, then, screw you!) Sticking Out Tongue

EDIT: I forgot to mention that, thanks to a post from ninjanick87 I do have the Tiger's Eye Tutorial. I'm currently looking through what it has to offer (Quite a bit for myself. I get the feeling some of it is pretty basic though...)

My suggestion is to start by modifying the menu screen. It's probably the easiest to manage. Try rearranging things. Maybe move the windows to match the look of your favourite Final Fantasy game. If you have any questions about doing these things, ask here and I'll answer when I see it.

To move a window's position, say @command_window, you use @command_window.x = X, where X is a number. X and Y start at 0 at the top left of the screen. X goes positive to the right, Y goes positive downward (which is different from in mathematics, but common in simple graphics systems). You should do this after any lines that say "@command_window = Window_Command.new(160, s)".

I may consider writing a tutorial along these lines in the near future if my time permits.

Thanks for the advice! I'll start there and see what I can create. I have a good feeling I'll be posting more questions here in the future, heh heh. (Hope to see your possible tutorial in the future)

The character that they are having is definitely very nice. It will be interesting if that is the case. - Fred Wehba
