Did that, but now the GlobalVar file isn't being created when it should be, and Global Variables aren't read from the file either ... Loading a save resets the variables to whatever they were on the save file.
Code:
module GlobalVar
  @@global_variable_data = nil
 
  def self.save
    @@global_variable_data = $game_variables.global_variables
    file = File.open('GlobalVar.rxdata', 'wb')
    Marshal.dump(@@global_variable_data, file)
    file.close
  end
 
  def self.load
    return @@global_variable_data unless @@global_variable_data.nil?
   
    file = File.open('GlobalVar.rxdata', 'rb')
    @@global_variable_data = Marshal.load(file)
    file.close
    @@global_variable_data
  end
 
  def self.exist?
    File.exist?('GlobalVar.rxdata')
  end
 
end

No Error messages this time.

That's not the entirety of your script right? When I put them all together, it looked fine to me.

Here's the entire GlobalVar script:
Code:
RANGE_OF_VARS = 50..52

module GlobalVar
  @@global_variable_data = nil
  
  def self.save
    @@global_variable_data = $game_variables.global_variables
    file = File.open('GlobalVar.rxdata', 'wb')
    Marshal.dump(@@global_variable_data, file)
    file.close
  end
  
  def self.load
    return @@global_variable_data unless @@global_variable_data.nil?
    
    file = File.open('GlobalVar.rxdata', 'rb')
    @@global_variable_data = Marshal.load(file)
    file.close
    @@global_variable_data
  end
  
  def self.exist?
    File.exist?('GlobalVar.rxdata')
  end
  
end

#module Graphics
#  class << self
#    alias clear_gs_cache_on_update update
#    def update
#      GlobalVar.clear_cache
#      clear_gs_cache_on_update
#    end
#  end
#end


class Game_Variables
  
  alias get_variable []
  def [](id)
    if id.between?(RANGE_OF_VARS.first, RANGE_OF_VARS.last) && GlobalVar.exist?
      @data.slice!(RANGE_OF_VARS)
      @data.insert(RANGE_OF_VARS.first, *GlobalVar.load)
    end
    get_variable(id)
  end
  
  alias set_variable []=
  def []=(id, val)
    set_variable(id, val)
    if id.between?(RANGE_OF_VARS.first, RANGE_OF_VARS.last)
      GlobalVar.save
    end
  end

  def global_variables
    @data[RANGE_OF_VARS.last] ||= 0
    @data[RANGE_OF_VARS]
  end
end

So, if you were to delete GlobalVar and then try to change one of the global variables afterward, it recreates the file as intended?

WAIT I'm silly. The variable I was trying to change was out of the specified range, and I never updated the range. Doh.

Yeah, with that knowledge, it works now. Sorry for the confusion.

And now Yuka can be a reindeer in game without fiddling with the debug menu. Yay. 1611816243643.png

I've started working on rpg maker again, and I can see a lot of improvement from when I was 13. I still have a long way to go, but I'm proud that I've gotten this far.

I am using the Nightmare Land pack.
I just can't walk to the store for lunch without walking past people smoking. It not only smells bad, it's probably poisoning me. I'm afraid I'll eventually have to be hospitalized. I can't take another path because there's too much traffic and drivers in the plaza are reckless sometimes. I almost got run over once, even after looking both ways.
