Overview

RMFinder (formerly MVFinder) is a utility for RPG Maker MV and MZ! It can search your entire game for the following:

  • 🍰 Items (receive/lose or sold in shop)
  • πŸ”ͺ Weapons (receive/lose or sold in shop)
  • 🐒 Armors (receive/lose or sold in shop)
  • πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ Actors (joining/leaving the party)
  • 😈 Troops (Enemies)
  • πŸ“ž Calls to Common Events
  • πŸ’‘ Switches (Conditions & set ON/OFF)
  • πŸ“ˆ Variables (Conditions & changing)
  • πŸ’¬ Text Messages
  • πŸ§šβ€β™‚οΈ Script Calls
  • πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Move Route Commands 
  • 🚲 Map Teleports *new*

and display on which map and by which event they're called. One could say RMFinder is an advanced Event Searcher.

What's it good for?

This is useful if you want to find all instances of a healing potion in your game. Maybe you forgot where the party is supposed to find that important quest armor, or you want to check all maps where one enemy is actually appearing. The uses are plenty for a handy tool like this!

I wrote RMFinder for my own game Numina because I'm revising many items and it was very hard finding all the places in the game where they're actually used. So I put a lot of effort into this tool.

Requirements

Hello! Nice tools you made there.
Maybe some kind of refresh button would be cool, because right
now I close and reopen the tool to get the refresh.
Or do I miss something obvoius? 

Hey! I'm not quite sure what you mean by "refresh" - you can also just press the "Find" button again to update the search results.

Hey! I thought I'd come swing back to say "Congratulations!" I just saw that this was listed as official DLC. Uh, I'm not sure how late to the party I am on figuring that out, I only just now heard about it. But being officially endorsed by the RPGM guys is the ultimate accomplishment! You've made it! I don't know if you remember me, I was the guy whose project was crashing because SumRndmDde named a file extension after himself, lol

Also, I have one smol request while I'm here. I don't know if it'd be a lot of work to do, but, would it be possible to create a dark mode version of the program? The pure white of it kinda clashes when you're using RPGM in dark mode

Thanks!

Aww thank you so much πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‡It's been out for a week now and I'm definitely proud to get the official RPG Maker stamp for it πŸ˜Š

I actually do remember the issue you had, haha! I think it would be possible but I have to investigate a bit. So can't say for sure when it'll happen 😊

I think the search for plugin commands do not work for MZ. It never finds any. Can this be fixed?

That's definitely fixable. I suspect it has to do with the fact that in MZ plugin commands aren't just text boxes like they were in MV. 

I'll have to investigate a bit, but there'll be a fix once I found the issue 😊

Great! Very useful tool otherwise.

I've just uploaded a new release that adds support for MZ plugin commands 😊

This is a lifesaver. Getting towards the end of my massive game and hell if I remember where I put x item 5-6 years ago :)

Haha, I feel you :D I had the exact same issues. Happy MVFinder is of help to you!

Id love to check this tool out, but was wondering if it supported searching for music files as well. Thanks.

Hey there! Currently searching for BGM plays is not supported, but a possible future feature πŸ™‚

Any chance this will be supported in the near future? I have a few audio files that I'm not confident to delete because I think they're somewhere in the game... I just forgot where :x

I actually created another tool for this exact case that analyzes unused resources in your game and tells you where they're being used :) https://starlit.itch.io/rmrm

I notice with the latest version, when "include conditions" is checked I get a array exception for variable and switches



Hey there! Thanks for reporting this issue. I'll look into it as soon as possible :)

I've just uploaded a new version that should fix the issue! Please let me know if you still have any problems.

Thanks for the speedy update. Works perfectly fine now

Wonderful update features in v1.10, can be used to narrow down searches greatly. This is the most amazing tool for this engine debugging imo. I think another very needed feature is the ability to sort the tabs like "Comment" especially in the variables tab in ascending or descending order. Sometime its a real pain as the list is sorted randomly when trying to track down the variable number and its changes to the next value.  Or add feature like search between two values etc.

Another feature if possible, would be the ability to find maps that teleport to another map. In other words, which map teleport to this map. Currently I don't think there is any way to find this in the game engine besides actually knowing the exact map event to see the teleport location. Would be another nice feature to add imo. As always thanks for your amazing work and keeping this tool updated.

Thank you so much for the suggestions! :) Sorting the columns definitely sounds like a good and easy to implement feature.

I've been thinking about visualising map teleports as well. It's definitely something I personally could also use for my project.

Can I get some help please, just purchase. My first use of the tool, I do a search for a variable and I get an error like Brancliff. I cannot use to tool at all unfortunately.

Managed to fix it by removing any odd named maps in the data folder. Loading just fine now. Thanks for this amazing tool.

Thanks for getting back to me! I've uploaded a Fix which handles irregular Map file names better now :)

(1 edit) (+2)

New version works great with irregular map names or backups. Tested with the same data folder and no errors. Thanks for the quick response and speedy fix.Hope you keep adding to this amazing tool. I cant stress enough how useful this tool is.

Hey, could I get a hand with an error I'm having? Here are the logs:

https://pastebin.com/YHktUXyM

When I try to search anything, this error pops up, and if I hit "Continue", nothing shows up. If I hit quit, the program closes. Any ideas on what this could be?

I can even send you my project files if I need to, I dont have much yet anyway xnx

Hey there! Sorry you're having issues with MVFinder! Yes sending me the project files would be the best. The /data folder would be enough. You can send me a zip of it to numina.official@gmail.com

I just posted an update that should fix this issue. Let me know if the problem persists for you :)

THE CRISIS HAS BEEN AVERTED

Thank you!

hey this is really dope and i appreciate it. i made a short visual novel and let my friends play + stream it. we had a good laugh because there were soooo many typos and grammatical errors cuz i wrote everything in the software, rather than using a word processor w/ spellcheck first lol. 

I made a list of all my typos/errors and this tool made things a lil easier to locate the text- i especially appreciate that it shows which page of the event it's on. thanks!

Hey! Thanks for taking the time to leave this comment :) Happy MVFinder was useful!

How can i see whether i got ".NET Framework 4.8" or not?

Which version of Windows are you running? 

On Windows 10 it should already be preinstalled for example :)

I am using win7 because win10 is ugly :D

Okay, you can check beforehand in the Control Panel in the section where you can see all your installed programs or uninstall them. There search for ".NET Framework" and see if 4.8 is installed.

You can also directly download it from Microsoft: https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/topic/microsoft-net-framework-4-8-offline-in...

Let me know if this helps!

I love your MVDoc tool and this one looks super useful, too! Definitely will be getting some use out of this when I go back to rpgm.
