    Random BGM? And "Switch OFF" BGM event IF Interacting with other certain events?

    Oops yeah the events will need some tweaking to work. Glad you found another way to make it work but this is how I would do it with event pages. I also forgot there's no built-in way to hide the timer (which blows my mind because it seems like having a hidden timer would be a very common...

    There must be a better way to structure this code

    Welp turns out this is all you really need for a pretty decent flickering effect. The multiplication factors on x and the this.wait scripts can be tweaked provide a more dramatic or more relaxed flicker.

    Is 4.99 a reasonable price for an RPG Maker game?

    What games on Steam, if any, have you purchased for $5? What was your experience with those games? What do the Steam pages of those games look like? If you're honest with yourself, how does your game stack up to other games at that price point? How strong is the hook in your Steam preview video...

    RMMZ The Math Warrior - An Elementary Math Educational Game

    The main battle system seems fun and good for drilling. I've only played through the first 2 floors so maybe you introduce this later on, but if you haven't, it might be a fun mechanic to allow the player to attempt a "Power Attack" with larger (and potentially more difficult) numbers to do more...

    Random BGM? And "Switch OFF" BGM event IF Interacting with other certain events?

    I don't think this architecture is going to work. You have to be pretty careful with loops inside of loops. As I understand it, the event handler doesn't "stay" inside the loop waiting for 200 frames. It runs the parallel event again as soon as it can so you will very quickly have 1000s of loops...

    Help with sprite scaling (mv)

    If you just want to make the sprite bigger, it's as simple as opening your sprite sheet in a program like and using resize to change the height and width to whatever you want (make sure "maintain aspect ratio" is selected). This will of course lead to a more pixelated look so you may...

    Strangely enough it does not cause any warnings or error messages. But yes it's just a note to myself and should be commented out.

    There must be a better way to structure this code

    Finally a true optimization. I realized there was no need to hard code the duration of the changes in brightness. I'm already generating a variable in the range that I want so I can just plug that variable in as the duration during each iteration of the flicker. General principle that noobs...

    How to make a character look like its pulling on an item.

    The easiest way to make this happen (for a one-off event) is to put an invisible event on the floor that the player will walk over and trigger your commands to make the other character run away. Set the event trigger to "player touch"

    Any way to stop BGM?

    The quick and dirty way to do it is to make a 2nd copy of the Demon Castle that doesn't have any background music and transfer to that one in the specific instance that you need to.

    Any way to stop BGM?

    If the area you're transferring to doesn't have any autoplay BGM (as set on the map properties menu), then it should keep playing whatever was playing on the previous map.

    How do I transfer a player to a new map and immediately board a vehicle?

    I would put the board ship command in an autorun event in the new map instead of after your transfer event on the old map. Like so:

    My auto event is resulting in a game over

    What happens if you cut the transfer player command? Does your autorun event end successfully and let you walk around?

My home state baseball team is going back to the World Series for the first time since 1999. I remember when they went in 1995 and won, that was like the best day of my life. (I'm a huge baseball fan and yes I'm talking about the Braves).

The new Dune movie reminds me of the game Dune 2 made by Westwood. A quality product on its own, but extremely disloyal to its source of inspiration.

Feeling like my new profile picture is nice. Thinking of making it semi-permanent, does any one has an opinion? Does it look too evil or does it work as a public profile picture? :)
