    @Darniela Did you try going here, then right-clicking "save as" ChainCommand.js? Sometimes plugins are sensitive to name changes or stuff. You could also try running this plugin in a new project and seeing if you can launch it there, if you can it might be a compatibility issue with something else you have. If it still doesn't work, wost-case zip up your project files, upload them to dropbox or something, then PM me the link. I'll try to to investigate.

    Hey @mjshi ! I love this plugin, but I can't get it to work. I get a screen saying "Syntax Error. Unexpected Identifier". Is this something you have encountered? o_O I am clueless! It would be super helpful if you had like a demo/project that I can look at and see where I'm doing stuff wrong :3

    It works! The problem was that I had renamed the plugin - I added "mjshi" to the title so I wouldn't forget to mention you in the credits. I had done the same with your "ConditionalBranch+" (a pretty neat thing btw) and it worked fine so I didn't expect renaming to be the cause. Thank you so much for your help and keep up the good work :wub:wub

    This has resulted in some improvements in a hidden function of my game which I've been meaning to do for awhile, and can help with more than QTE sequencing if done properly. I'm not yet done with this aspect (in fact, I literally just implemented this!) but this plugin can do some interesting things beyond its stated purpose.

    For example, here's a classic combo that you can do by adding menu to the list of accepted inputs:

    ChainCommand 400 up,up,down,down,left,right,left,right,cancel,ok,menu

    (Ten guesses what that is.)

    Don't forget to create an icon to represent the menu input if you do this. Named accordingly, of course.

    Now I'm gonna see if I can insert code for a hidden sequence event, so that I can more effectively seal the deal for the ultimate secret.

    EDIT: A bit tricky for the intended mode change so for now I made a "part two" which contains modified portions of the base code and a hidemode-specific image to do everything the base version does but without the visual feedback.

    @mjshi, I would love to see a battle-specific use for this excellent plugin. I had a bunch of QTE skills made with SRD's Arrow Timed Attack Sequence, but that plugin seems to have broken since I updated MV past V1.5.x. ;_; Would this need to be commissioned?

    (I did try to do this by using the ChainCmd plugin command in a common event, and then call it within the skill using Yanfly's Action Sequences, but as another poster mentioned, it doesn't quite work as well as on the map).

    Yes, probably. It would require some significant rewriting of the plugin as-is. I'd look into combo skill plugins if I were you, they're close enough to be substitutes.

    Sure, I figured it wouldn't be easy. Thanks for the tip, and thanks for the great plugin! I will still be using it for a lot of map events in my game.

    Hello again,
    I'm having trouble changing the background in the minigame. I tried two approaches:
    1) doesn't work at all
    upload_2019-9-24_13-39-12.png
    2) turns on the mini game with the default background
    upload_2019-9-24_13-42-50.png
    I'm at my wit's end even though I bet this issue has a very easy solution :D Can anybody help the noob out?

    EDIT: this is the customized background (for my language acquisiton game), it's in the img/chaincmd folder

    @Darniela Don't have it be a plugin command, use a script command! It should be around the same area in the event commands box. Otherwise you're doing it correctly c:
