Hi! I have been toying with RPGM MV for the last 10 days or so. I have watched some tutorials, and I think I understand the basics. Of course I have a long way to go still, so that's why I'm just messing arround with the program, trying to implement the ideas I have. What I have created:

An intro(It's just for practice, I don't think it's any good). For the most part it looks as I imagined it, and although I think I have made the eventing unnecessarily complicated, it mostly works as intended. A couple of issues I have: the flash screen is used to change the background while keeping the characters in place, but I can't make it look good, it looks out of place. also, I don't know how to make the image of the monster dissapear after I press Enter to go on with the text.

A battle test. Here the hero can interact with the NPC to battle against different enemies. I used a "Show Choices" command. If you select "Choose opponent", you can battle against Slimes, Orc or Minotaurus. Once you select that, the Battle switch will turn on and make the respective monster appear as an event on the left side of the NPC. If you interact with it, you battle. Also I have added a conditional branch to check if the Battle switch is on. If that's the case, you won't be a ble to summon another monster. After the battle, the result will be stored in a variable(1 for each enemy) and you will be able to check your record by selecting "Battle Record". My problem is that I can only make this event work once. After I finish a battle the enemy sprite will not dissapear, and If I choose another enemy, nothing happens(I can still battle the one that's there) and the conditional branch tells me that there is already a monster to battle.

I hope my explanations are clear. Here is a link to my test project. Once you have watched the intro, you will be outside to try the battle test.
Hope you can help me and thanks!

EDIT: Here there are the screenshots of the battle event thingy:

Pages 3 and 4 are the same, I just changed the monster and the variable.

Usually no one bothers with full project downloads as that is just too much for most people (not everyone has a flatrate), and the only thing really needed are screenshots of the event pages.
Please use [alt]-[prtscrn] to make those screenshots as that is the easiest way.

I got to say, the intro is pretty nice, but it can be easier to set up instead of 5 events to get
fire, ind, earth, water, light, so that part can be on 1 event alone.

the crystals on the otherhand, not, so the Fire, Water, etc switches are not
needed at all (unless you have something specific in mind) but why switches
if they can easy picture called only?

there are some events on parallel which i dont understand why you have them, but
dont use parallel to check constantly, while its best on player/event touch or action button.

otherwise, nice job on hte intro.

Ok, I’ll do that! Just thought I would need way too many screenshots.

Thanks! I took your advice and made all the stuff with the pictures in one single event and the flow is much better. However I had to create a blank event in the position I wanted the animations to play(Is this the right way?) Glad you liked it:LZYgrin:

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say. I created the crystals as 4 different events cause I need the sprites to appear, is there any other way?

I edited my original post, now you can see the screenshots :)

you never switch off the self-switches, so the enemy event never resets

Thanks, you were right! Also I forgot to turn the enemy switch off at the end of the battle. Now it works as intended.

ESAMarathon on Twitch, now streaming "Eat Girl". Yep, that's the title of a game... Apparently it's a Pacman knockoff.... Which is of course the only logical conclusion one would get from a name like "Eat Girl". :kaopride: I can't believe anybody would think anything else! :kaoback:
Super stoked i just finished my first town in my project, by finished i mean i can always add more decorative aesthetics and the NPCs don't talk yet but the mapping is complete and all the important chess pieces are present!
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
Me: Good!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
Me: Crap.
Should be able to release Haxe MV/MZ next weekend.
It look that somehow MZ tracks are messed up (for example battle4 is obviously a theme, castle2 is a ship, ship1 is a scene and so on..). Maybe they just named them after with some ambiguity.
