    How to make a door open and reveal an NPC behind it?

    Hi everyone! I feel like there's got to be some sort of simple solution to this, but I'm losing my mind trying to figure it out! @__@ I can't figure out how to open a door and reveal an NPC behind it. One that can exit from inside the door's space and then walk onto the rest of the map for the...
  2. Is there any way to disable the turn toward player feature when interacting with an NPC?

    In my game, before you can talk to characters. I'm implementing choices that can make you do a variety of things to the NPC. Such as being able to battle, talk, steal, inspect what they are doing, etc... It's not a big problem but whenever you interact with the NPC they always turn towards the...

    Getting Character to Follow Non-Player Character

    So, I would like to preface this by saying that, outside of very basic events like chests or the like, I have almost no knowledge of RPG Maker, not helped by my first project being down in a trial version of MV, so moving to XV Ace doesn't help. Anyway, I'm developing a small test game called...

    Gaining Skills from NPCs

    I just got this software recently so I've been messing around in it and I was trying to make it so an NPC could give me a skill. I'm pretty sure I did everything correctly, but it still doesn't work. NPCs can give the player items, but not skills. I've attached a file of my code (please ignore...

    Having a Randomly Moving NPC Approach You

    Hello! I'm new here. Right now, me and a friend are attempting to learn RMMV and we are very new. So, here's the problem: We have a randomly moving NPC (bartender) that moves along the bar every so once in a while to check up on the NPC's at the bar. So far so good. So far we have events set...

    How to make NPC's join party temporarily?

    I looked around on the web and wasn't finding anything about this but I'm not sure if I would need a whole seperate script for this. How can I make NPC's temporarily join my party (follow me around and attack monsters with my current troup) without letting the player control their actions? Any...

    Spawning NPCs on other maps

    I'm working on a game where I generate about 5-8 NPCs up front (on creating a new game). I also have a known set of maps. I need to distribute my NPCs to different maps. I can't do this through the visual editor, because the NPCs don't exist until the game runs (each new-game creates a...
  11. Newbie problems (NPCs not following their set paths)

    I am trying to making two guards look like they are sparring in a training hall.  I instructed them to step forward twice one, a 'bump' sound plays and they jump back one step, walk back one step and repeat. Their direction they go is mirrored and I am trying to make it look like they and...
  12. Rm2K3: Line of Sight

    I am new to RM2k3, but not programming in general.  I have a nice little line of sight handler developed.  It works using a taxicab distance metric and the NPC's current direction.  In an open field, this is  a perfect handler, but when placed in a dungeon or a building with a lot of obstacles...

    How Interactive do you like NPC's

    So I am wondering how interactive do you like NPC's to be? Do you like them to be able to respond to everything a player does (i.e insane)? Perhaps you like them to interact only to certain things (i.e half and half). Or maybe you just like your NPC's to just kinda be there (i.e dull). What...

    Crafting Categories/Ideas, and What's in the Town?

    While looking into Vlue's Advanced Recipe Crafting script, specifically the crafting categories, a stray memory happened to pop into place. Sometime just after the Y2K rollover, while looking around the 'net for game-making tutorials, I came across a gamedev.net article which listed some things...
  16. Encyclopedia Script for NPCs

    I am requesting a very easy-to-use encyclopedia script for strictly NPCs. I would like it to be very customizable with a name, description, and picture of the npc. I am very bad at scripting, so I cannot figure out CSCA's encyclopedia.

    Is there a way to make the player face an event without knowing exactly where it will end up?

    I know in Set Move Route you can have have an event face towards the player, but is there a way to have the player face towards an event? I have an event that triggers another character to walk up to you, using "move towards player" with Skip If Cannot Move. However, you have another character...

Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
That awkward moment when you're talking about thinking about writing a limited shop stock plugin for MZ and then find out you already wrote one...last May. My memory is so bad.
When I open my project and I'm like, hell yeah.
Some drawings I made in Lapis, one day I intend to involve them in some RPG Maker project.
* maybe two wall frames
*or some sprite flower tiara, or maybe it inspires someone to do something.
