I've been using RMMV for a good while now, but for some reason the playtest doesn't seem to function.

I click on the button, and nothing happens, it just doesn't open.

It still works when I deploy it, but that is to inconvenient for playtesting to check every small change made.

Anyone know how to fix this?

The only reason why that happens is because of SRD_SuperTool.js plugin. Sometimes this plugin don't close entirely a previous playtest. Check with CTRL+ALT+DELETE keys in process manager you don't have another instances running in background. Look for "game.exe" in process manager, close if you have any and try to run game again. if not, then I don't know, maybe some files in project are corrupted, or antivirus somehow starts detecting your game as potential thread and it block.

I don't know what OS you're running, but if you're on Linux and just recently updated something relating to Qt5/Javascript/WebGL etc you might want to try rebooting.
I've had that frequently happen to me where playtesting just doesn't work after updates and it does solve the problem sometimes.
If you're still having trouble (or not using Linux, or not using SRD_SuperTool like Soulrender suggested) you can always temporarily try playtesting using your browser.

i'm working on finishing an old game in vx ace (the first game i tried to make in vx ace), and it's making me realize how many things i've come to take for granted in mv (like the additional BCDE tile layer and the plugin manager).
It's ma birfday! Gonna chill and work on my project, editing some icons for my compass rn. Later It's pizza and a movie, maybe Blazing Saddles...
I really hope Google stadia/Amazon luna become successful household "consoles" in the future only because I could see it being 1000x easier to get RPG Maker and other indie games on their platforms & if so I PRAY they have gate keepers to keep half baked indie games out of the mix so they don't end up like steam/itch.io with 1000s of incomplete RM projects that continue to give our community a bad stigma.
I'm new here! Used to use RPG Maker 2000 as a kid, now I make 16-bit era style RPG music and hope to contribute to a project. You can sample a couple of tracks I posted on YouTube by searching my username.
