In the script PokemonField around line 134, there's all the things about the location signpost. I have a few questions about it.
  1. Is there a paramater to force a specific windowskin versus what the player is using for the menu? Or would a whole new window class need to be created for that?
  2. To go with the question above, Emerald introduced skins for location signposts depending on the type of location. (ie. towns had a wooden sign, cities had a brick sign). Is the best way to go about implementing this similar to how NOSIGNPOSTS is implemented?

Cheers.

There's no way currently to make the location signpost windowskin vary depending on what kind of location it is. You could quite easily change it for all signposts at once, though (to the same one).

The question is how to decide which windowskin to use for a given map. Perhaps some override array (barely like NOSIGNPOSTS) could do if you weren't bothered about making it tidy (which I am).

What I've done is change the windowskin depending on certain parameters of the map. So for instance, if the map name includes "Route", a route skin will be displayed. If the map has cave encounters, a cave skin will be displayed. My preferred method is with the inclusion of certain parts of the map name, like "City", "Town", "Forest", "Woods". I know it's not very specific, and has to be organized to work properly, but it is an easy workaround.

Although I appreciate both of your answers (I'll likely take a shot at the override array if I feel patient enough) this is more the question I needed answered.

To change the signpost's windowskin at all, go to PokemonField and find class LocationWindow. In the def initialize there, put the line @window.setSkin("Graphics/Windowskins/goldskin"). The particular windowskin you use may vary.

From there, it's a matter of deciding how you want to change the windowskin for each different map. It's simple enough to do, so long as you've got a system sorted out.
