    Trouble With Saving Using Plugin

    I am currently making a short rpg horror game. I felt inclined to add a stamina system so that the player can only run for so long before having to let it recharge. I used Silver's Dash Stamina to achieve this. The problem is when using the plugin I can no longer save the game. I've tried...

    Removing saveing from menu.

    Hi, so in the game in creating I have added an actual object in the game that serves as a save point, that the player can use to access the save menu from. Because of this, I want to remove the option to save from the menu, aka the pause menu, because two ways to save just seems a bit overkill...

    Creating chapters for the game?

    Hello! I'd like to know if it's possible to create a chapter system. Most of the time people want to be able to return to these chapters later on, but I don't need to be able to go to any of them. I just want some kind of a display at given moments? Like an animation, or I don't know what...

    JS Request: Partial Save/Modify Save

    I am requesting a way to modify only certain parts of a save file, without doing a complete save. I think it'd be easier to explain this in examples. Example 1: In Undertale and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, cutscenes play differently (usually faster since you've seen it already) if...

    I need to save the world! Where was I?

    Alright so when a player leaves a game unfinished for a while (days, weeks, months) before coming back to finish it, how do you guys remind them of where they were in the story? (current events/quests)

    Less than 20 saves in game

    Is there a way to modify the stock js files to change the amount of files i get in a game? I don't think 20 save files are completely necessary for a short game.

    RestoreLocation load the game at a specific location

    This simple plugin will allow you to restore a saved game with the player in a specific location that you can set in a variety of ways. You can clear the stored location (thus allowing the player to save anywhere), modify it a piece at a time, use variables to set the location, set the location...
  9. Save/Load Game at a Specific Location (Dark Souls Bonfire-Esque)

    Description: 1) The player is able to save his game anywhere, but upon loading the game, he is returned to the last place/map he marked as a return point (similar to Dark Souls' bonfire system) 2) The player is able to use an item to mark his current location (mapID,mapX,mapY) as the location...

  12. Save Tileset settings

    Hi, so I recently bought RPG maker VX ace and decided to mess around with it. I downloaded a tileset and set the passage options for all of the tiles. When I started a new project, I realized that I needed to redo the entire tileset for the new project. Is there a way of saving tileset settings...

    [Ace] Trouble with Jet's AppData Saving script

    Hi. I've been trying to use Jet's AppData Saving script, which is supposed to keep save files in a separate folder, but I keep coming across an error. The moment I launch the game, I get a script error, saying "Line 42: Errno::ENOTDIR occurred." And then it says 'Not a directory'. I am guessing...

    Worse saving system ever?

    In your opinion what is the worse saving file feature you've experienced in a video game platform?  This can range from any game/any genre.  I'm just curious what your thoughts are! For me the top two ranking ones would prob be: Castlevania II (NES) or Rambo (NES) for its insane 30 character...

    Save Feature

    I've had a few people who beta tested my game had problems saving.  Upon investigating, I thought I had 'Disable Saving' in any of my events.  This was not the case (it happens on my laptop though not my main machine and they both use Windows 7 and both are signed on as administrator). Unless...

    Monsters respawned after re-entering game.

    My game has over-world monsters, and in one section they are "hidden" in thorny hedges, and come flying out at you. This is done just with two events, the monster event having a blank page to begin with, and then another event to walk over that triggers the monster's next page where it will come...

I have a specialized class on intellectual property this semester (on Patent and Trademarks, Copyrights is next semester). Only had a quick overview of that in previous business law classes. I'll be able to help more people here when it comes to knowing what to do and your rights for intellectual property!

I've reconsidered having a subclass system for my first two games since there will already be plenty of variation in playable actors and usable items in the games. The third game will need it because of the basis for the story but I want the actors in the first two to be more focused in their roles.
