    NPC Flees/Chases you while avoiding walls

    Hey everyone just a quick question, I have several moments in my project where you have to chase an NPC or an NPC chases you. The problem is when this NPC reaches a wall he'll stop moving completely, is there a way to set it up that the NPC will maneuver around walls and such? Thank you -JAD

    NPC's Move While Text is Displayed?

    I've noticed that when a text box is displayed in-game that the NPC's that wander around still move about. This isn't a big problem at the moment, but it could be later on when I start adding enemy NPC's. Say for example, you open a treasure chest and a 'You got...blahblahblah' text box pops up...

    How to make NPCs walk like the player?

    I've been working on a game and I need to make a NPC move from one point to another point. So I set the Movement Type to custom and make the NPC walk left 4 times. But, once he starts walking, he literally walks like he's retarded. He takes a step, than waits a second or two and than takes...

    Random walking NPC help?

    I have a cat in my game and I have him wandering around the map randomly until interacted with. My question is, is there any way to get him to turn as he walks so he's not just sliding sideways when he moves that way? Thanks! -Chibi

    Parallel Process (Talking NPC)

    I was working in a particular project when suddenly.. I thought of an idea About NPCs talking to each other. Well normally we use "Stepping Animation" to make them look like talking. So I was wondering of putting the "Stepping Animation" to both NPCs in Parallel Process so the player can...
  14. How to make a condition where the player needs to talk to a person?

    Let me explain what I need, in detail: if the player touches the event which gets him to another map he is confronted with a message saying that he can't and it doesn't transfer him. So in order to go there he must talk to a specific person and then the event unlocks. Sorry if the thread already...

    Okay, here is the deal. In my game I want to include NPC's which might need to block entrances to buildings or the like. But right now, everyone can just walk through the NPC's, this I want to prevent. I know you could just disable the event to enter the building, cave or whatnot. Still it...

    Running a shop?

    Heya, I'm pretty new to the recent RPG maker, though I played around with it a little waaaay back when on the Ps1. =p Anywho, I had a thought for making a game kinda comparable to Recettear.  That is, a game where the focus is on selling things, building up your shop, expanding, etc. Testing...

    Making Memorable NPCs

    Making Memorable NPCs Yo. Today I feel like talking about NPCs. I've played a lot of amateur RPGs and nearly all of them feature the same copy-paste "welcome to this town" NPCs. Lazy game developers will treat NPCs like scenery—like they're just a part of the map and not living characters. The...

Ugh....When you spend hours doing something and then end up scrapping the idea >.<
Random joke of the day: This morning a man wearing a face mask robbed a supermarket in the town center. So far the police has arrested 240 suspects.
Hosting competitions using your game is always so nerve wracking!!!
Social distancing is great, apart from trying to work from home while the guy up the road now has ample time and apparently the only way to fill it is to ride his dirt bike up and down our street all day :(
