I know Hakuen Studios has a plugin for common events while closing the menu, but I want to fade the screen in before opening the map?

I know that Button Common Events from the same creator can call for an event upon opening the menu if you code a Common Event to do so, but even if I add a fade in, the character can still walk a little bit while the menu is opening up.

Sounds like I'm asking for two possible solutions, but basically I need to stop the player's movement as I'm calling for the menu.

I feel like a fool now @KawaiiKid. Never thought of that since I was just using the wait command that came with the screen tinting. Thanks. That solved the issue!

if this will be a common occurrence in the game, try setting it as "cinematic mode" by using switches.
basically, "when in cinematic as directed by this switch, hold player movement, and when not in cinematic as directed by this switch, restore player movement"
that act of going in and out of mode can be handled by a common event: you order the passing into cinematic mode, and you order the passing out of cinematic mode, with all the locking and unlocking that you need being contained within that event.
that way you don't have to go through the cinematic (if that's the case here) putting things on and off.

So how would I hold player movement since that's kind of something I could use in the future?

depends on how and why you'd want to do that, but as a rule of thumb, as long as the engine is busy with something else, it won't let you move.
so, you keep the engine busy by keeping it ticking within an event.

drawing a dialogue is one example: it won't restore movement until it's ticked out of that window, either by an OK from the player, or the dialogue reaching it's end and automatically dismissing itself.

Another camping area.
I just found out somebody pirated my 3,99$ game. I spent over a year making it and somebody just publish it for free a week after early access released.

I should be glad, cuz if they pirate you, that means your game has to be good, but im not. I barely sold any copy. Didn't get any info from most of the sites I wrote.
So I'm hoping that I get an MRI on my knee soon, but until then, I'm on a prescription dosage of ibuprofen. It's definitely helping, but my knee is still hurting and occasionally locks up. The urgent care doctor was convinced it's a meniscus tear due to it locking, and said that if it is, I'll need surgery. :(
