I have RPG Maker VX Ace. 


I read pretty much every post on these forums relating to character speed. 


I tried using commands such as: Create Event>Set Move Route>Change Speed (I made sure it was on Player)>Speed: Normal. 


So my issue is that I'm trying to create two different events on two separate maps. One of the maps is an overworld map, which is suppose to have the speed as 2x slower. Another map, which is a town, is supposed to have normal speed. Instead, it's keeping the same speed. 


I know what you're thinking, you're going to tell me to make a new event to change the speed back to normal. I tried doing that but it's keeping the same speed. In fact, when I make a new event, the default speed is set to Slower x2. Not normal speed. I checked the code to see if it was set to a new default speed, but I couldn't find it. 


How can I change it so that it switches back to normal speed from one map to another? It's not working properly... 


Thanks.

Please show screenshots of both events with all their pages - most likely you made something wrong in the trigger or the conditions, because that is how it should have worked.


But we need to see the entire event to even guess where you might have made the mistake...

Here you go. I would compress the game data and choose the option so you're able to dig into the game, but you'd have to advance 15 minutes into the game to get up to the issue.


I also screenshotted the default-chosen speed for the "move route" and speed for the "autonomous movement". This is to show you that the new default speed was changed to "2x slower" somehow.

several problems with your events:


First, you didn't give screenshots of the second pages, and higher page number = higher priority - if those have no conditions for example the first pages would never be executed.


Second, even if they are correct, using a switch to switch off the autorun is the wrong way to go - because that way, the move speed change will only be executed once when the player first enters the map, and never again after that.


Changes that need to repeat everytime the player enters that map needs to use erase event on single page events.

On the second page, it's the result for the Self-Switch event that's been turned on in the first page. I should've mentioned, but the second page has nothing on it. It's just a blank page that's triggered by the Self-Switch. 


I tried running these events without a Self-Switch, but it didn't give me control to do anything because it was on autorun. I'll try erasing the event when I get home in a few hours, I'll report back with what happens after it's been changed. 


Edit: Sometimes I get confused with erase event and self-switch. With the way you worded it, I think it helped me understand them a little more. You learn something new every day!

One more thing you could try doing (mind you I haven't tested it since it's late and I need to get up early, but in theory it should work!!) is to apply your change speeds to your map transfers. So the transfer to enter town has the "Move Route: Change Speed to Normal". Then, any transfers back to the Overworld Map, has "Move Route: Change Speed to Slow". This way you don't have to worry about a new event just for the change speed part, and you don't need to add a new page, or erase events, etc.

Thank you, @Andar, for your help! And yes, @GreyStone84, I actually added that into the game. Thanks for mentioning, though!

just saw that titan quest is free on steam until the 23rd
Zombie status is now complete. I didn't have to do much in the way of changing how healing is applied to undead targets, was just a simple 3 line code. I thought I had to overhaul Game_Action lol. Everything else was doable by events. So.. Zombie: You turn undead. Your element changes to darkness. You're weak to light, you're strong to physical attacks and healing hurts you and revival items will kill you.
My Overworld might be a mix of inspiration from 2D Final Fantasy games, Breath of Fire, Battlechasers: Nightwar, Super Mario World, and Pillars of Eternity. If I can make it more in-depth than just walking from point A to point B, that might do a lot for the gameplay experience. Hmm...
