Hello there. How can I recreate earthbound encounters in RPG Maker? I mean seeing enemies like NPC's and random spawning when the player leaves a place and goes back. Then if the player goes near them from the back he will have the first attack and vice-versa.

For random spawning (and if you have some money) I reccommend you Yanfly Event Spawner.

To make an event chase the player, set its autonomous movement to "Approach" type

To trigger the event (and begin the battle) when it chases the player, select "Event Touch" on trigger

To make the attack from the back I suggest you to make your event having 2 states (using a common switch)
  • An "idle" State by default where the event movement is "Random" and the trigger should be "Player Touch", this is the attack from the back.
  • And a "chasing" state (maybe common event C) where the movement is "Approach" and the trigger is "Event Touch", this is the normal battle.
AND...

I think you will need to make 2 troops for every enemy, one for front, and other for back attack where you could force the enemy to wait on the turn 0.

My computer broke yesterday, so no RPG maker for at least a week until I can get it repaired. :(
Just wanted to share how my game won 1st place in a game jam for itch.io. Everyone else used Unreal, Unity, GMS2, Godot, etc but I used RPG Maker 2003 :guffaw: It just shows that you can create a good game and it doesn't matter which engine you use
Working on cutscenes~

if your game is the first (or ONLY) in a series and still has a colon in its title, you are a bad person and I hate you...... jk.

who could ever hate BETWEEN: TWO SOULS?
