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?

concept: zombie slayer fest.

Lag because of outdated hardware.

Lots todo:
-Terrax lightning should have another step for the flashlight, between up down left right.
-Also Online mv from Nelderson should emit the flashlight from the other player.
-Animation needed for killing the zombie...
Before adding it to #crypchania.
Working on a case. Get all the evidence to prosecute some bad guys. :kaojoy:
But, the game development schedule delayed. :kaoswt2:
The moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished... I guess...
Except that, nothing to see here. :kaoswt2:
just beat ff7 original for the first time since 2010. having played remake last year, I have a much better appreciation for the original oddly enough. I still like some of the character presentation in remake more, but the original's got a lot going for it.
Ever reach that moment in your life when your juggling a dozen or more projects that you know will never be made but don't have the heart to delete them? Ugh, I hate those moments...
:kaosigh: Why must you hurt me so?
