I bought this today, and thus I am VERY new to this. I watched a tutorial today as I hoped it would make me better at understanding the program. However, when I want to right click at the map to, for example, create player startpoint or create a new event, NOTHING happens. Please help as this issue is kinda breaking everything...

Are you sure you are in Event Mode? You can either change it by using Mode in the menu at the top or clicking on the icon that looks like a red game piece or pawn.

As mlogan said, right-click on the map for these options exists only in event mode, not in mapping mode - and video tutorials usually forgot these tiny details because they have limited time.


I suggest you follow the link "starting point" in my signature instead and work through those tutorials, that will bring you up to the basics as fast as possible without skipping important details.

No, this happens to me too.  It may not be the mode at all (though of course that should be checked).  


In event mode, it just doesn't detect the right-click sometimes.  If I do it over and over, sometimes it'll finally pick it up.  Sometimes if I left-click and then right-click it'll detect it.  It's just buggy.

This is another bug. I think it occurs on duel monitors. Try dragging the rpg maker window to your second monitor and then moving it back. This tends to fix the problem for me. RPG Maker MZ... always full of surprises.

Hey everyone! No Studio Blue RPG Maker Critiques Stream today! But you can always check the playlist for old streams you've missed!

I ran out of paper sheets to draw, so I guess I'm forced to do digital for a while now...
