Hello all! I'm trying to do something similar to the Phoenix Wright games where the player is able to press a button during someone's line of dialogue and press them for more information (or in RPG Maker's case, activate a different event). I kind of have the logistics of how to do it event-wise, however the main roadblock I have is that whenever there is an active message/dialogue/text box on screen, you literally cannot do anything until it's gone. I want to be able to activate another event (via a conditional branched button press that's parallel processed) during a message box. Any ideas on how I could go about doing this? So I had additionally put this out on Twitter as well, and I managed to get a solution from Rachael on Twitter! Using a parallel processed event was just one way I had thought of attempting what I did, but Rachael's code snippet re-defines what happens when you press a text-advance key (by default it's B or C, or the Menu/Confirm buttons). Now, you can turn on a switch that will define the next set of text-boxes to be able to interrupted by the player, until the switch is turned off. In the code, it will check if the switch is ON and then if the player interruption (defined by pressing the L button) has happened. If all this is TRUE then it will turn on another switch which can be called through a conditional branch, and from there you can event whatever it is you wanted the interruption to do.
