I have some questions. About RPG maker MZ. You see, i'm making a dragon quest fan game. I need to know some things.
1. How do I make beeping sounds for text in MZ? Its very importent. (excuse my spelling) In very game in the franchise,
they have a beep sound effect when somebody talks. How can I do that in MZ?
2. In old dragon quest games, there is a thing with battles, lets say.... You are on a forest tile. And then you are battling
some slimes. Since you are on a forest tile, the backround looks like a forest. How can I do that in MZ?
3. How do you change battle themes on diffrent maps? Things like boss battles, arena battles,
things like that

I take it you're really new and that's ok, we all started at some point. You're going to need Plugins to do the first two. There's a list of many here...https://makerdevs.com/mz/master-list

The 3rd can be done with going into the Event Editor and go to Tab 3 and select Change Battle BGM if you want the Battle Music to be different and to change music on different maps you can Right Mouse Click on the Map Name to the left and go to Edit and change the music in one of the options and go to the Autoplay BGM area and select the music you want for that map.

1. You'll need a plug-in. I had one for MV, but I don't know if there's one for MZedd yet. There might be. You'll have to look in the plug-ins section.
2. You'll need to use regions and events for this. I'm pretty sure there's a tutorial out there for how to change battlebacks with event and regions. Basically you'll make an event that checks the player location on the map, and if they're in a (1) region then the battleback will change to (insert what battleback you want for that region here), if their location is in region 2, it'll change it to whatever battleback for region 2, and so on.
3. This is also done by events, on page 3 System Settings: Change Battle BGM. Do that on the maps where you want specific music to play, or before boss battles you can trigger the BGM change in the events too and then Battle Processing with your boss/arena battle.

It's easier to use Terrain Tags than regions for things like worldmap battleback terrain stuff. This way you don't have to use tons of regions for every single new area of the worldmap just to have different battlebacks.

Can you elaborate on this? I'm very new still, and haven't heard of this before. There's nothing about it in the game tutorial.

For some reason I thought they took out terrain tags. XD But I looked and there they are??? I could have sworn terrain tags went missing awhile ago.

Terrain tags are in the Tileset tab and you can set certain tiles with a tag number. Basically you won't have to paint "fill in" regions, and instead the certain tile itself as used to denote what "region" it is wherever that tile is drawn. I like region tags a bit better (cause I feel it gives me more specific control) for some causes.

Oh, interesting! Thanks for the explanation!

Another character battle theme
Sorry everyone. Covid rules made me a laptop potatoe and I would need more exercise and past 2nd invasion I am still fighting for space also here. So I am not enough often here and... well I answer even less to my e-mails. DC is saying a huge HI to everyone with her heavy wet purrings.

You all take care in here ^^
