Can you zip up your project and load it somewhere I can download to take a look? Not the version you're sending to others - I need to be able to open the project in Ace and test some things.


Out of interest, can you tell me the full path to your %appdata% folder? Or even to your Documents (or My Documents) folder? To get this, just go to My Documents, then click in the bar at the top that says My Documents, copy the full path and paste it here.

Attach it to your post. Or load it to photobucket or something like that and add a link to your post.
Use imgur instead, photobucket loads like a dead race horse.

That is a very strange custom scene script. I don't understand why he's basically replaced the whole of DataManager with his own module. He hasn't actually changed any of those methods in any way. I suspect you're going to have other issues, because his script initializes the new replacement module, but not DataManager, but OTHER scripts still use DataManager. I can't comprehend why he's done it that way, instead of just overriding or aliasing the original DataManager methods.

In fact, this is probably WHY your in-game saving is not working.

Here are 2 ways to get around the bug. One is easy, and leaves his scripts as they are, only modifying mine. This will let you run the game, but I suspect you'll still have the saving issue. The other modifies HIS scripts to reinstate the original DataManager and ditch his questionable replacement module. I'm not sure what the purpose is of moving the character in the create_new_game method - I had to comment that out in order to get the intro playing properly, but it didn't seem to have any effect after that. The second method MAY resolve both the crashing issue AND the saving issue. But there might be other issues it introduces (I don't know, because I can't follow his logic).

Anyway ...

method 1: replace the following two methods in my Override Save Location script with what's below:

#-------------------------------------------------------------------------- # * Determine Existence of Save File #-------------------------------------------------------------------------- def self.save_file_exists? create_app_paths if !@savePath !Dir.glob(@savePath + '/Save*.rvdata2').empty? end #-------------------------------------------------------------------------- # * Create Filename # index : File Index #-------------------------------------------------------------------------- def self.make_filename(index) create_app_paths if !@savePath sprintf(@savePath + "/Save%02d.rvdata2", index + 1) endmethod 2: in the Custom Scene script, replace anywhere you see RPGDM with DataManager (one in self.run, one in self.run_map and the module RPGDM). And as I said, I had to comment out the DataManager.setup_new_game method at the bottom of the Custom Start script, because with it in, it went straight to the specified map and didn't play the opening cinematics.

Did it play the the movie part then go to main title and when you did new game did the screen just stay black? If that is what happened I had my event set up to be triggered by a switch lol, but I changed the part in your script and that error didn't pop up (YAY!) now I'm going to try it on my wife's computer and see if it works.

I can't remember if it even gave me the title screen. It MAY have gone straight to the black map without showing the intro OR the title screen. Sorry - I've been distracted since then and can't actually remember.

I was wondering if this issue was ever resolved? I'm having the exact same problem and the script doesn't seem to work for me.

I am happy because the RPG Maker MZ character comes with extra bust and full body art, but I am disappointed because the quality of the character's PIxel art has decreased.
Only My Opinion that Pixel art MV is better.
