    Hello something started happening recently that's very frustrating. When play-testing the debug tools no longer appear either in the menu or by pressing f9! I'd appreciate if someone could tell me what's going on as this makes debugging a LOT harder!

    Some questions:

    1.) Do you have RPG Maker MV through Steam?
    2.) If it's on Steam, do you have the properties set to "Auto-Update"?
    3.) Are you able to open the F9 debug menu in a new project?

    If all are yes, your issue is that the RPG Maker MV editor upgraded to version 1.6.1 but you didn't update your project.

    OK, glad that you got it worked out! I would recommend disabling the auto-update through Steam, it can help save you some headache when these updates happen --> and you'll be able to choose whether to update or not, and do it on your own terms.

    Hey I'm actually over the moon. Since updating my game's performance issues have been fixed. Mostly my game ran fine but when handling large groups with all spells or other animation or image intensive sections it would often freeze up. Today there is no lag. Everything runs smooth! So I'm thankful the issue showed up and forced me to update XD. Thanks for letting me know too!

    Then your project probably had a very old core - there have been memory leaks and performance issues up to 1.3, but beginning 1.4 all the defaults engines memory leaks were found and fixed...

    @Andar That is possible, but it is not the only possibility. MV v1.6.1 comes with nw.js v0.29.0 which is bundled with Chromium 65, so the upgrade to the Javascript engine itself may be a significant factor in the performance improvement.
