Good to know, no guarantees that we'll fix it. But at least we know now in case someone wants to take on the challenge.

@DarkSearinox92 Other than probably updating the coordinate system at some point. I hadn't really planned anything. Then again that's the beauty of this project, anybody can update it. :LZSwink:

@Nekohime1989 The Github has been updated with your fix. :LZSexcite:

Hello
I love this plug-in.
Can someone help me with my problem, please.
If I use (<Activation Square: 3>) at a fire event and approach the fire, the fire will come on.
But how do I get the light off again when I move away from the fire?
Thank you

@Platsch What plugin are you even using? I don't recall (<Activation Square: 3>) being a function of this plugin, so where is that from? A temporary, but tedious solution would be to sorround the fire in question with events that upon player-touch turn off the fire again.



@ImaginaryVillain Concerning my light-lagging issues;
One peculiar thing I found (and a temporary or even permanent fix(?) for my light-lagging-problem) is that it seems that if the affected events have any kind of autonomous movement, their light will NEVER lag behind.

So what I did was I went to every problematic event that suffered from light lagging behind and changed the "autonomous movement type" from fixed to custom. I didn't even have to put any commands into the custom route and it still works!

I has been using TerraxLighting plugin for more than a year and I wanted to try Community_Lighting.

Sadly it is not working at all, and I don't understand why, I turned off TerraxLighting and Community_Lighting is just below:

Do I need to do some additional steps in order to make it work?
Do I need to start a new game?

Thank you!

@stramin It defaults to having CL as the tag indentifier for lights. If you want to use Terrax's old tags, go into the plugin settings and delete that.

Wonderful! it works!

thank you!

I have another question, it seems like light blocking still not working for me, I want to block this tile:

1603418868037.png1603419013527.png

So, I wrote this command:

Code:
TileBlock 98 ON #000000
it this number (98) correct?

I also tried 97 and 99.

EDITED

Ok, I just read the whole topic and I see there is no way to achieve it.

I will try doing it using a black square or something.

Thank you!

This version for MV changes how coordinates are calculated and should fix the problem of lights not following events during their move routes. If nobody finds any problems I'll see about pushing it to the MZ version as well.

@ScorchedGround Give this version a test and see if it works. I ran it through the demo and couldn't find anything that didn't work. Still it never hurts to have multiple testers.

@KaYsEr As I have redone how coordinates are calculated. I did some minor testing with UltraMode7 and didn't see any problems. If you end up testing it let me know how it goes.

Edit: I accidentally edited the wrong version without the Lights Active Radius option, so I reuploaded the correct version.

I did some testing with one of my major cutscenes and it seems that all lights updated accordingly.
Which is a great thing. So far I've not encountered any negative side effects, but I'll let you know when I find any.

Anyways, thank you for your time and effort, kind villain.

EDIT: I've discovered that plugins cannot be upgraded just by copying the new version over the old one...

@Moon_Haven In the case of this plugin, it's probably the tag being off in the plugin parameters. People periodically seem to change it randomly when they update the plugin. Check that and see if it matches the tag you've been using. Otherwise you should be able to simply copy it over.

The fire flicker seems to work in the demo with the updated script. Try comparing your setup to it. Also you'll have to add the updated script to the demo manually. Though the note commands haven't changed, so it's just a copy paste affair.

If you try dropping the lateset version into the demo and it still doesn't flicker properly, let us know please. :D

As I don't have MZ to test with, this is a hypothetical update to the MZ version which should fix the text/move route light source problem. As the change is identical to the MV version I don't foresee any problems. But someone will have to test it for me and let me know.

Is there a way to adjust amount of flicker a fire can have?

So you can make a big fire have more flicker than a small campfire... for example

So I figured out how to put words and pictures in the screen transition. It even wipes away from both the top and bottom. The possibilities are endless! :LZSexcite: I'm going to devise secret messages now for them because I'm a terrible wonderful person like that. :kaopride:
December has arrived and with that, an ¡update for Aletoir Feast! a game made it for the One Map Challenge. I will use some of the remaining switches, variables, and events from the challenge limit to add more content but keep it within the requirements. ¡Have a nice day Everybody!
What I worked on today. :LZSjoy:

No stream today, make a game in MZ is continuing next week!
It seems MOG Weather only has a "clear" function to instantly erase a given weather effect. Probably works well if weather only changes at map transfer, etc, but looks very abrupt if weather effects are continuously changing. So my next challenge: script a "fade" function to gradually fade the sprites and wait to "clear" the current weather until the opacity of all its sprites hits zero... or something like that! XD
