My game has a tendency to lag, and I was wondering if there's any way to see what's causing it?
Thanks! :)

of course there are ways to see that - for example by checking what exactly is happening at the moment it lags and at the moment it doesn't lag.
But there are too many possible causes to even start looking without more info.
Lag can be caused by too large files (especially parallaxed maps or large audio files), by a single badly designed parallel process, by too many events, by a wrong event, by not having sufficient computing power and other causes...

What version of MV are you running? At one point there was a memory leak.

I have had luck using F2 to show my FPS. When this is lowered by an area, I know I need to adjust something.

1.51 is after the memory leak fix. So that should not be your issue.

What happens when you have F2 FPS showing during laggy parts? If it drops below 50, how many events are running. Are you using any lighting effects in those areas?

JRPG TextBox HTML - Part 2:
So I'm resuming work on the Shadowstar Trilogy. I've decided that it will take place between the end of G4 and the start of G5, and two of the Lost Rulers will be Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer (who is the moon princess in my AU).
Been working on some sprites, My favorite out of all of them is this guy, his name is Moss:

I also wanted to say that my bro brought back nostalgia and got me a GBA SP for my birthday! Ah, the memories of Pokémon Sapphire and LeafGreen! It came in a gray shell but he ordered a red one so it'd look like the one I had as a kid. It looks brand new!
