It's not surprising for streamlined games nowadays to have their own help manuals included with the game or accessible within the game. RPG Maker MV doesn't provide anything like that by default, unfortunately. However, using this plugin, you can create ways to access the helpfile from within your game through either the F1 key or an in-game menu. This helpfile can be linked to a local HTML file within the directory or to a website URL online, such as a wiki page. This setting has to be changed in the 'Help File Path' plugin parameters.
To integrate access to a scene from this plugin into Yanfly's Main Menu Manager, use the settings below:
For those using the Main Menu Manager and would like to position the Help command in a place you'd like, use the following format: Name: Yanfly.Param.HelpCmd Symbol: help Show: $gameSystem.isShowHelpCommand() Enabled: true Ext: Main Bind: this.commandHelp.bind(this) Actor Bind: Insert the above setup within a Main Menu Manager slot. Provided you copy the exact settings to where you need it, it will appear there while using all of the naming, enabling, disabling, hiding, and showing effects done by the plugin parameters. Remember to turn off 'Auto Add Menu' from the plugin parameters.
Here is a list of Plugin Command(s) that you may use:
You can use the following plugin commands to adjust how accessing the help file is done for your game. Plugin Commands OpenHelp - This will open up the help file or URL for your game. ShowMenuHelpCommand - Will make the 'Help' command show up in the main menu. HideMenuHelpCommand - Will make the 'Help' command hidden in the main menu.
