Um hi! o v o
I'm very new to mv and very clueless
I need help with lights! Like what the title says,
how to make the lights turn on and off when the player presses a wall switch or whatever switch (lever, ,,)???
I have no experience with scripts and not much with the actual program so replies with screenshots would really help me T w T

that has nothing to do with scripts, that is pure eventing - just condition those lights (they're event's I assume?) to a switch, and have the event that displays the tile-switch on the map change that same switch by control switch event command.

If you're completely new to the maker, I suggest you follow the link to the starting point in my signature and work through those tutorials.

Thank goodness it's not script related T w T , , ,i kinda get what you're saying but I barely have any idea how to connect the lights o a switch o n o,,,I downloaded a plugin that's called terrax I think , I placed it on a lamp, I really have no idea how to turn it off T . T

then you need to read the script description of how to use that script - eventing only works if you create the lights based on events.

@milchiah -. Welcome to RPGMaker! Glad you are eager and off to making some things happen, but I strongly suggest following Andars tutorial links before you start installing plugins.

Gaining a strong grasp of those basics will help you a lot before you start messing with things changing the core engine.

No more spam from me today, I promise! Just wanted to upload this, people have been giving me feedback that my weapon sprites (which were RTP) clashed badly with my battlers for ages, so today I finally took the plunge and updated them! Really happy with how they came out :D :D
So Facebook fraudulently took money from me. They even went through my PayPal accounts to find a card that had the money on it. Thinking about deleting my Facebook account because this doesn't happen on twitter, not even close.
Today the 2nd part of the RPGMakergame "A Thief's voyage" came out.


Go show DutchPowerCreations some love.
love it when you forget to put a certain thing in the movement route and suddenly a character starts spinning at 10000 rpm
I'm sorry. I have a bad feeling I've been manic the past couple of days. Antidepressants have only been making things worse somehow -- too drowsy to function, followed by insomnia. Why not making me go crazy to boot?
