Hello,
I recently purchased Encounter Effects plugin however I am not sure how to use it.
Can someone direct me? I purchased in order to have the player follow the player based on distance or notice the player when passing in front of them. Any help, I would be more than grateful. :)

That sounds like you want the <Alert Range: X> notetag.

Hi! So where do I put this note tag at?
I think thats the part I am not sure about. Do I create a event on the map and add a enemy image?

Yes. The notetag goes in either the note box of the event (to the right of where you give it a name) or in a comment in the event page command list. There's no reason not to use the note field unless you want to have multiple pages with different alert settings.

What's the difference of using Plugin Commands vs comment Tags? When do I know or how do I know to use them?

I'm not aware of any plugin that has both a plugin command and a comment tag that does the same thing, so I'm going to assume you're asking about the difference between putting a notetag in the event note box vs a comment command in the event code.

Putting it in the note box makes it a universal trait of the event; no matter what page it's running, that notetag will be in effect. Putting it in a comment on a page means it will only be active when that page is running. You'd use the former for an event that will always chase you no matter what. You'd use a comment if, say, you only wanted the event to chase you when you were holding a certain item, or when a certain switch is on, or a variable has a certain value.
