Basically what the title says, I want a little message to pop up whenever you get an item with the icon of the item next to it. Any ideas on how to do it.

You'd show a text window saying: "You received \i[X]!" after each time you add an item to the player's inventory. \i[X] draws icon X (X being the number that corresponds to the icon ID). Pretty simple stuff. Have you checked out any beginner tutorials?

Thanks for the quick reply :D and no I've not had the time to check them out. I've been figuring things out as I work on my project :p

This is honestly the wrong approach. There's so many things RPG Maker can do, and not all of the names it uses for the event commands are as straight forward as 'show text'. You'll be forever confused about what switches and variables are and what you can do with them if you're not taught what they are. Not using any sort of guide means you'll be making frequent trips to our support forum. So I really do recommend to start at any kind of beginner tutorial. This is a good place to start.

But but but, I already know what a switch and a variable are! :p I'll give it a read, thanks! :D
