Hello i haven't been using RPG maker VX Ace very long like a couple hours or so, iv hardly done anything at the moment because

i am stumped with something. I did want to learn myself without help and tutorials, So i'm trying to make so when the player enters

a certain area i trigger a certain string of events like screen shakes and flashes the it fades out then back in, 

I have posted a screen cap of my attempt of doing so can some one point out where i went wrong please 

or point out away to solve this situation please. Thank you.

I'd try to help you, but there's no screen of the event page you want to be fixed. Would be useful if you put it in here :) I'm quite new to the forum, so maybe I've missed something. Where's that screen cap of yours?

I don't see any images.


Set your event trigger to Autorun. At the end of all the commands, turn on a self switch. Add a second page to the same event and set its condition to that self switch. Leave everything else alone on the second page.


Next time, please use meaningful terms in your thread title. We KNOW you're having trouble or you wouldn't be posting here. Some keywords about WHAT you're having trouble with would be a big help.

Hope this help you, I made this for one of my recent games, it generates a random-ish thunder and lightning effect

That is a nice idea, but also a problematic one.
For a game programming engine, RPG Maker is relatively easy - but the key to that is "relativly" - it still has a lot of options, and even with tutorials many users need weeks to learn everything that is possible in this editor.


I suggest you follow the link in my signature, that tutorial should point you in the correct direction for most cases.

There is a problem, one of you conditions is that you have the enter switch turn on, but you are trying to turn it on in the page it's required for.


You can't require it to be on before you turn it on.

You mixed up or misunderstood the difference between condition and control.


Condition means that something has to be set elsewhere before the page can be executed.


Control is the command that can be used to set something.


You have one and the same switch both as condition and controlled in your first event line.


This means the switch has to be ON before that command is even executed, so either this command is double and useless, or it's in the wrong place (because you need to control that switch somewhere else before that event can work.

Doing clean-up on tall-ified sprites, filling in pixel by pixel where the stretching warped the image, feels incredibly tedious but also highly rewarding when one zooms out and the sprite looks even better than before.
I found this app on the playstore and I'm loving it, it's very good for organizing project ideas
hmm one of those days where there's a lot to work on with my game... annnnnd I have no idea what I wanna do. most of it tho, involves drawing lol. either enemies or NPCs.
I'm going back to the default RTP, in the interest of getting it done. FSM is lovely but slow to work with and has tall doors. And switching to tall sprites would mean a lot of franking, and also the horses will be small.
I think I developed a stalker trauma (stalkerfobia?) because of my previous work publishing games on Steam. :(
