I've moved this thread to MZ Support. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.


If you aren’t using MZ, let us know and we will move it to the correct forum.

If every event is activated, it says you have every event conditioned to that 1 switch, which you shouldn’t do. The inability to open menus sounds like you have an autorun event going.

Please provide full screenshots for the event pages of the event that turns on the switch as well as one of the events activating that shouldn’t.

or it could be that one of your plugins assigned that specific switch to special functions.
NEVER ignore plugins after adding them, they always need to be configured - and if you don't know what a specific configuration does, then read the help and ask around.
There are dozens of cases where games run into problems due to forgotten configurations in ignored plugins.

then you need to check every event where you used that specific switch for mistakes.

and you should learn that you should always name switches on first use, because that way you can never double-use them like you have currently - if a switch has a name you'll know that you already used it for something else.
Now you need to find and correct every other use of that switch that caused the problem.

and if you need help with that, we need to see screenshots of your event code and settings.

In that event, do you need the switch to do anything else besides go to the next page? If not, use a self-switch instead.

There are only 4 self switches how would that work for multiple dialogs, i want her to say the 2nd one until after i go and talk to the inn keeper then i want her to same somethibg else after the everything is done, but how do switches stop you from leaving the map or opening up your menu?

What is on page 2 of that event?

If you turned on a switch and now you can no longer move or open a menu, it means you probably have a page conditioned by that switch that's got an autorun trigger. This could include a page that has no event commands on it, as well as a common event that's conditioned by that switch.

You could also do a search for the switch, using the Event Searcher tool (icon has a laptop with a magnifying glass, beside the Sound Test and Resource Manager icons).


Also, that isn't RPG Maker MZ. What is it?

You use the switch version? Just so you know this company did not release that version so unless someone happens to know how to use it we won't be able to give you specific advice for that version. Just advice that is general for RPGMakers.

Most, if not all, event related issues should be fairly similar in nature. I have a few Discord acquaintances who have it, and everything I've seen points to Trinity being normal MV, just slightly downsized for consoles.

Can I see page 2 of your event, by the way? I need to see the trigger condition you have on it.

"I turned on a switch and now I'm stuck" sounds like a parallel common event running somewhere.

Just 80% of my motivation on game making lmao, anyone got tips on how to not be unmotivated?
I've signed up for a job training program for people with Asperger's Syndrome. I went to a "test run" today so they could see how well I did with simple jobs, and I amazed them. Most new people do it in 30+ minutes, while I finished in a mere 15 minutes. Gives me time to work on a screenplay for Studio MDHR...
People,I have seen that Someone from China/Chile and London is doing a Vaccine Against COVID-19.
