You read javabooks just for entertainment!? *looks at collection of arcane sigils about romantic vampires* I will never reach your levels! Your brain is far beyond mine. Good job human!

No, if I read them just for entertainment, I would have read it when I bought it, when MV was released. Instead I only used it as a reference, when I couldn't understand something I was seeing in MV's code. Now I need to build something outside of RPG Maker, so I need to learn all the stuff I never had to touch before. Currently at 30% (though I'm only going to page 700 so it's closer to 43%)

I've never been a good book learner, so I just tend to poke things and see what breaks. >.>

Although now that I think about it, since MV has a deploy to web option, I could just keep the rpg_core.js and external libraries and rip out everything else, and make my non-game application with RPG Maker and use all the mouse, save, load and image stuff that's already there. I'll make that Plan B.

I'm with @taarna23 on this one, learning from a book is such an alien concept to me. Best just to poke, prod and break stuff until it works the way I want it... Or at least a close approximation. :kaoswt:

Probably way I'm just as likely to inject code as use MV/MZ's archaic systems. :LZSwink:

That's what I've been doing for the last 4 years - mainly using the MV codebase as an example, then a few select plugins when I was looking for something really specific. But it's nice to understand why some things are the way they are. I learn better through video tutorials, but I expected internet to be terrible where I was going, and it was.

Just took a look at Udemy, and it made me remember a couple of good YouTubers I'd started to watch before going away. Have to check them out again.
