I haven't found any so I decided to "guess" one... None of them works :C
Any suggestions?
And no, I can't use an event command for it.

you can do it probably in 2 ways it's best:

either use .opacity = 0 (or .opacity = false;) or (.opacity = null;)
or the easier way of moveroute (this event or target the event to change
opacity to 0.

the 2nd one throught moveroute is the one I would use because easier
to control and targetting the events :)

Nothing seems to be working.

P.S. Please, don't suggest using event commands. I need a script call

use 1 = $gameMap.event(7).opacity = 0;
otherwise you need a tiny setup before hand

let ev = 7;
let opacity = 0
$gameMap.event(ev) = opacity;

it might return true in any way though.
you can use the console log to test things out.

I'm getting "... is not a function" or "YEP Core(or movement" script errors. I found a workaround which has nothing to do with opacity, but I still would like to know how come it didn't work for me.

this might work for scriptcall:

$gameMap.event(this._eventId).setOpacity(0);
$gameMap.event(x).setOpacity(0)

if you want it to control it by variable:
$gameMap.event(this._eventId).setOpacity($gameVariables.value(y), 0);

if those dont work, than I dont know anymore, but x = ID of the event,
and y for variableID if used if you want to change it in a different way.

Just as a bit of help, so you don't waste your time trying to "guess" code:

1 - Google. I typed "RPG Maker MV event script transparency" and immediately got posts on this forum with pertinent commands.

2 - The RPG Maker MV Library has all of MV's data types and their members. So you can click into the Game_Event type and see a list of member variables and functions you can use.

@ATT_Turan
I use Ecosia as my search engine plus often have to change my regions from the US to Spain depending on what I'm looking for and by guessing I mean that I used different forms the same script call in case some of them won't work.
I know about the library but I waste more time searching for what I need and trying to understand how to use what I got.
I'm not a Scripter and trying my best before posting here.
Additionally, rpgmakerweb's forum's search function isn't well optimized and whether you can or can't find something becomes a question of luck.

When a person says "Google," they refer to any search engine - if they properly index Web pages, typing a given combination of words should pull up roughly the same results. I know if I type Spanish words into something I'll get results from Spain-based sites. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Additionally, I'm not familiar specifically with Ecosia, but you ought to be able to specify a specific domain (e.g. rpgmakerweb.com) to search within.

This is why I get results from it using a regular search engine.

@ATT_Turan true I don't often use these technics, but you can't expect some "rando" from the internet to know about this or even learn it in case they're overwhelmed with life stuff, so "search better" advice is still ****ty. I'm not forcing anyone to respond to my threads and I hope they'll help some people in the future encountering the same problems.

Frustrated, as always. I took a break from working on games and when I turned back to working on them again, bam! Slapped in the face with more errors. Such is the pain of working on any project, I suppose.
Checking out the Judge's Round Table. Really cool getting their perspective in a Q/A environment like this.
I'm heading back to Orlando tomorrow! Dad said he's going to take me to my favorite arcade and maybe Aquatica.
animated message windows <3
or message window that uses background images that can be animated?
Still need to fix some things, but it's going great so far :)

just when I thought one of the greatest game of all time couldn't get any better, they announce a new dlc for it.
