Elemental Skill Colors – C++ MV Plugin

This is a port of the first MV plugin I had ever developed; however instead of using JavaScript, this version is entirely written in C++! Using node-gyp, a native NodeJS module is used to interact with the global namespace of the MV game and modifies the desired functions with native, C++ code.

In order to install, simply download the precompiled ZIP version (only works on Windows and MV projects at version 1.5.2 or below). Extract the ZIP in the plugins folder so that the “native-plugins” folder is within the plugins folder. Install the SRD_ElementalSkillColors.js file like any other plugin and you’ll be good to go!

This plugin is nothing more than a proof of concept. For this plugin in particular, there are no performance benefits. However, if a larger product (such as HUD Maker, a pixel-movement plugin, etc.) was built more into the C++ context, there would be drastic improvements.

Please note, this plugin will only function within NodeJS environments. Essentially, this means it only works on desktop exports (Windows, Mac, Linux). Unless specifically modified, this will not work with mobile and HTML exports. Furthermore, the precompiled version (the one available for download), only works with MV versions 1.5.2 and below. 1.6.0 and above uses a different version of NodeJS. As a result, users need to recompile the source code linked beneath the download in order to use the plugin properly.
