Hi I have a parallel process event running in the background that routinely damages the player. I would like the event to be paused when the player is in a message box with another event. How can I best do this?

Thanks - Z

put the contents of the event inside a condition:
$gameMessage.isBusy()==false

I had this exact type of issue when the same background noise I had running on a parallax event kept playing, and ruining the moment of of the dialogue!


You don't have to follow it if it's not in your favor, but what I did was this:

I created a "Cutscene OFF" switch.
And I set the switch to where...if you interact with the NPC (So for your instance, whatever triggers the textbox), the "Cutscene OFF" switch turns ON in the very beginning of the NPC event and turns OFF at the very end.
Next, I gave the parallax event a 2nd page, and said this 2nd page will only happen when the "Cutscene OFF" switch is turned on. I put nothing on that 2nd page. (In other words, I used the "Condition" checkbox on the left-hand side)


So what ended up happening was that the parallax event would only play when the switch was turned OFF. If it got turned ON (through events like your dialogue-event thing), the parallax event on the 2nd page runs. (For me, it just goes quiet...)

Maybe that could work for you! : )

Where do i have to play Heisei Pistol Show the same creator that made Re: Kinder Parun
I really get the feeling I should be doing regular YouTube videos whenever I make something cool in my game, instead of waiting for massive changes. But not going to lie... I always feel like it's never quite enough to merit an update, until it's a drastic change. :kaoswt:
Going to submit to this game jam...struggling with the time crunch...

Just released a new OST for my game and a new place to purchase it!

Ah, things to do when you finish a game.
