    RMMZ [Solved] How to save JS variables?

    Let's say my NPCs are an array of objects. This way I create a living world: when the player enters a map, the game checks which NPCs are currently in that map and spawns character-events to illustrate these NPCs. But, the real data for all NPCs, including those that are active off the map, is...

    RMMZ [Solved] A JS question about storing functions in an array

    JS allows storing functions in an array and calling them later. For me the problems start when those functions are on instances of a class and when I need to refer to the instances via "this.". I created a test snippet illustrating what I am trying to accomplish, but I clearly lack the syntax...

    RMMZ [Solved] Can I combine multiple PNGs into one "showPicture" call?

    I assemble a character's image using individual images for clothes. Here is an example of the clothes and how the character actually looks with all of them on. The assembly is accomplished via multiple "$gameScreen.showPicture(...)" - about 30 such calls to dress a character, starting with...

    RMMZ [Solved] Question about Nested Choices via JS

    I have a wardrobe that I want the player to pick items from. The wardrobe is a dictionary, and the choices offered to the player should be nested. I.e.: "Pants > Jeans" or "Top > Tee". I do get the first level working, but then the messaging system stops reacting. I somewhat understand that...

    Creating City Car Traffic

    Are there off the shelf solutions, or established patterns for creating city traffic? Here are two blocks showing US-centric avenue-street grid layout. Verticals are one-way streets, horizontal are two way avenues. My immediate approach, although naïve, would be to use one event per car...

    Question about half-sized cells - how are they used?

    Does anyone know how are half-sized cells employed in projects? I attached two screenshots showing how authors (my bad, I do know know who the authors are to credit them) use half-cell walls to show exit / window. How is this done? Would anyone have a step-by-step guide? Thank you.

    Removing Weapon Completely from Actor's Initial Equipment

    Would anyone know if actor's weapon (exactly as it appears in the Initial Equipment selection screen) can be removed altogether and replaced with, for example, glasses? Currently it seems that the first slot in the Initial Equipment section is hardcoded and can be only occupied by a Weapon...

unintentionally made a track that sounds straight out of Yume Nikki
Revisiting one of my older projects in a long time to work some more on the mechanics. I've been working on- and off-again for about a year now on recreating the Force and Mystic systems from Wild ARMs. And I think I've finally made some good breakthroughs on that!
