I want to add guard NPCs that walk back and forth in the movement pattern I set to them, and you would be teleported back to the beginning of the stage if they see you(Kinda like Pokemon trainer encounters, y'know), but I have no idea how to do that! There's no 'seeing you'-option in the Trigger Condition menu, or anything else like that. I would really appreciate it if someone who knew about stuff like this would help me.

you need to make a parallel process comparing the position of the player with the position of the guards.


The more complex the map (sight obstacles) the more complex that event will be.

Thanks, but how to use the parallel process? Sorry that I'm a noob, but can you post a screenshot or something?

How do I do that? I know nothing about scripting in RPG Maker.
The linked tutorial contains no scripts, that is simple event code there.


I suggest you follow the link to the "starting point" in my signature and take a month to work through those tutorials as everything so far was nothing but basic events, and that is something you'll need to learn forward and backward if you want to make a game with any RPG Maker.

The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
so like with the whole 'familiarity breeds contempt thingy', how are you supposed to tell if your title screen/battle music gets really tedious after a few dozen plays or if you're just personally hella sick of it?
