Hello fine people!


I'm inquiring about footstep sounds in RPGMaker MV.


I am currently using (as many others I presume) Yanfly's Region Events plugin to add footstep sounds to the game.


(Common Event, Randomise Variable, Play SE,etc...)


However the Common Events are only triggered by the player when moving around.


During cutscenes using the Movement Route, or when other events such as NPCs move, nothing happens..... This makes it very akward when


suddenly the footstep immersion is killed.....


Now I know a possible workaround is to play SE's in the Movement Routes, but really this is super tedious and not to mention it doesn't nicely randomize the many footstep sounds


like the Common Event does.


I know there was a post like this for VX Ace (post added below) but I've not found a workaround for MV.


I was really hoping someone with scripting knowledge to find a way to have these Region Events be triggered by more than just player movement via arrow input. I'm sure this would be helpful to many!!!

I made a plugin for my game (which mostly consists in cut-scenes). I dunno if it'll be of use to you but maybe try it out?

Wow, awesome! Thank you for the quick reply!


Is there any way to make this work with Common Events? I have about 8-10 SE's for each footstep material and it would be a shame


to play the same sound over and over with a pitch variance.


Thanks so much for the quick help.

Hmm... I made it as simple as I could (and I'd rather keep it that way). Doing it by common events like you propose gives way more flexibility to it which is nice but sorry, I don't think I'll add that feature to this plugin anytime soon >.> However, you're free to edit it yourself (or ask someone to do it for you) so that it calls a common event instead of a SE each time a player/character walks on a terrain tag. It shouldn't be too complicated!


The script call for calling a common event is:


$gameTemp.reserveCommonEvent(ID);




And no problem :)

I understand that if it is no use to you there is no point putting time into it :)


Thank you for allowing alterations to this script, I guess it would be a lot easier to change it the way you propose since your script already takes care of off screen events, above character events, etc... these are all really nice features.


If anyone is willing to adjust the script to call Common Events instead of playing an SE that would be amazing! (I guess there would also be no more need to use Yanfly's Region Events if everything is done via Terrain Tags)


I'm happy to exchange my footstep recordings with whoever is willing to help with building this feature (I have a lot of materials and nice variations and quality)


I feel like it would be a nice addition to most RPG's honestly. :)

My only regret is the portal mirror effect is too subtle to show up in these GIFs. It probably just needs more sparkles. :LZSwink:
Microsoft: Hey, let's waste money advertising the Xbox Series X when nobody has any in stock, we don't seem to be making more, we aren't taking preorders and you can't get on a waiting list. BEST. IDEA. EVER.
So I'm practicing ITC with a spirit box, and decide to try to contact my deceased soulmate. It actually gave me multiple identifiers. Me, still a bit skeptical, asked aloud "Fine but does he still love me?" and the box spoke and printed the word "Forever" at the same time. Been a mess of tears since. :kaocry:
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
