This script allows your player to be able to rename characters straight from the Status Menu if Ace Status Menu is installed. You are able to allow and disallow specific actors from being able to be renamed as well as allow even an actor’s title to be retitled.

Insert these notetags into your actor noteboxes:

<rename allow>
<rename disallow>

This tag will allow/disallow renaming of the specific actor. Whatever default setting you set for actors can be counteracted by one of these two tags.

<retitle allow>
<retitle disallow>

This tag will allow/disallow retitling the specific actor. Whatever default setting you set for actors can be counteracted by one of these two tags.

For the Western users who are using the Japanese Trial version, if you are getting the Japanese name entry, change this setting under Game_System to false if you want Latin characters to show up.

And that’s all, folks!

  1. Is there a switch that can make this applicable to? like, make renaming a perk for some quest in game, activate switch, you can now rename.

    • General rule of thumb; If it isn’t mentioned in the instruction manual, it isn’t in the script. :P Though, that feature would be a nice addition to this already amazing script.

  2. Is it possible to limit the amount of characters one can use? I don’t want the name to be longer that 6 characters for purposes of not cutting text off if a name is to long. And thank you so much for this, it is awesome!

    • Ignore this, because I found it! And just to answer it in case others wondered… just disallow naming (instructions in script) and run the “Name Input Processing” from the event window. =)

  3. This is great, but since I don’t want to allow retitling I don’t want to have a greyed out option to retitle in my status menu, and I don’t see a way to remove it..
