Not sure if i'm just being a noob, but i copied a town map so that i can make a version for after an intro cutscene with optional encounters and stuff, as well as to get rid of an event. However, once i copy it over, i can no longer delete any events. It just won't let me. Any suggestions? I'm probably just going to use switches but im curious as to what's going on!

how did you copy the map?
where is the project stored (full filepath please, from drive letter to project file)?

either you did something wrong in the copy process, or the file has become read-only due to something in the directory structure or so.

A file being read-only would only cause issues when you tried to save - it would not stop the events being deleted within the editor.

OP, is that what you're saying? You can't delete the event in the editor at all? It's not a case of deleting, then saving and closing, but the event is still there when you return?

Can you edit the event, and does your edit stick?
Can you right-click on the event and choose Delete from the pop-up menu?
Can you try to delete by using the delete key, then try to delete by using the backspace key - do either of them work?
Do you have a second keyboard that you can try, or do you have another computer that you could copy your project to and try to edit it?

Also, please edit your post and make your thread title more descriptive. Everyone who posts here needs help - say what you need help with.

Im using a Mac, currently the RMMZ File is under documents, inside that is the game project file, inside that are the usual project folders, in the data folder are all the map js files, nothing looks out of place. The code looks fine, i'm not a professional programmer, but the tiles, events, and data seem to be fine.

To answer your questions
Yes edits stick
No, all it shows are options to search events
No, this doesn't work either
And i don't have an extra keyboard or computer unfortunately

I should probably not it only seems to be effecting events that were copied over,not ones on the original map or new events.
And sorry about the title! I will fix that!

Close it all down. Then open it and try to copy the original map to a new map again. Does the same thing happen on the new map?

After you closed and reopened, do you still have the problem with the existing map?

Just spent $174 on Shining the Holy Ark on the Saturn. Good lord.
My brain when designing quests:
There is piano, it needs help --> The organ (yes organ now) is missing a component! --> Where the heck am I supposed to put this missing piece!??! --> Add an entire new mini dungeon specifically created to house this new piece. --> Connect this brand new mini dungeon to an already designed dungeon with background information about the town it's found it.

Me: :LZYhuh:
Rising of the Shield Hero!
Sheesh, Guys, don't think you can throw easy prices like $25/$50 on potions/ethers then have monsters pay you $75 for killing them (never understood that concept btw lol) and think it'll all work out!!! Just realized my prcies vs payout left my players unable to get decent stuff without some serious farming from the start, i'm about to call H&R Block to help my MC get his stimulus check just to buy new armor :LZSlol:
