Disable Player Movement By Input


by DreamX


Introduction/Features


Define switch IDs in the parameters to decide whether to allow the player to move and/or activate events with the action button.


Parameter "Move Switch" defines the switch ID used to decide whether to allow the player to move by input. If this switch is ON, then the player cannot move by input. However, they can still activate adjacent events with the action button.


Parameter "Move & Action Button Switch" defines the switch ID used to decide whether to allow the player to move by input and activate events by action button. If this switch is ON, then the player cannot move by input and cannot activate adjacent events with the action button.


You may ask why this plugin would be useful, given that by default the player cannot move while an event is running anyway. However, you may not always need or want an event to be running while you need to disable player movement, so being able to do so with a simple switch command is convenient. In addition, this plugin allows you to disallow the player from moving but still allow them to activate adjacent events. A good use of this would be a situation where the player has to press the action button on an event adjacent to them at a certain timeframe.


How To Use


Save the script page as a .js file and configure the parameters to your liking. Then, just turn the switch on and off as you wish.

This was just what I needed for making it so a player crawling out of a vent couldn't move around until they had fully emerged from the vent!

Thanks! :)

Expectation: Working on boss battle.
Reality: "Look at how awful are these code and database organization. Let me clean this mess", *yet, casually adding more modules that I have no idea if I would use it later*
Trying to learn to read Japanese so I read my manga. I like to buy them without all the edits made during translation.
The only thing getting me through today so far is coffee. And lots of it.
Amazing. I had seen it more than 10 years ago, but seeing Monster this year was an incredible experience. It was certainly one of the best endings I've ever seen in anime.
