    Maybe I just don't know how to search for this, because I'm not sure what to call this thing and I get unrelated results from searching the internet.
    In my game there's an area of tiles that harm and sometimes poison the player. An occasional message pops up to taunt them, saying "You're still dying." But their health hits 1 and they never die. I've found tutorials for this with other RPG engines, but sites don't seem to tell me how to enable the character dying in over world from poison or floor tile damage in RM 2k3.
    Is it not possible in RPG Maker 2003?

    Well, I found an alternative which involves a timer winding down and eventually killing the player, but it's frustrating when their health hits 0 and the player is freely walking around without a care.

    There's an allow death checkbox in some events (such as Change HP, etc). Could post a screenshot of this event?

    Since it's not a battle rpg, being in battle isn't there to cause a game over.

    Haven't used 2K in ages, does it have a conditional branch? if it does a branch to see if Character HP is 0? If yes Game over.

    This won't let me drop it to 0 and it says "or more".

    Ok so if that works, if HP is 1 or more then do nothing,

    else

    Death/ Game over.


    So put the game other/death in the else part.

    I'll give it a try, because that makes a lot of sense technically speaking. Thanks a bunch!

    Lol. I won't strain my lungs then. I had to make it 2 or more because the poison won't drop me down to 0 for some reason.
    But it wooooooooooooooooorked! Thank you sooo much!! I'd give you cookie, but I already ate all of them.
