I'm trying out a picture sliding puzzle, and for those of you that don't know what his is, you have a series of tiles mixed up on the ground, and you only have one space free to move the tiles, and you have to put the tiles together to create a picture. I've been trying to figure it out myself because I can't find a tutorial about it anywhere. I think I've got all of the variables set correctly so that when the picture is put together correctly, something happens.

The problem is the actual picture sliding. I want the picture to immediately slide into the open space, but it's a huge hassle. I've tried having the tile move away from the player, and half the time it won't, whether it's on a movement route, and autonomous movement, by action button, or player touch. It won't work when I have it on action button, and with player touch, the player has to come in on the opposite side of the tile next to the open space (this gets annoying) and the tiles get stuck against walls and I can't get them to move into the open space. I also had it on a random movement route, but that didn't work very well either. Most of the time it didn't move at all.

Does anyone have a better method of doing this?

You're usually much better off using the Search box for this site, rather than google.

yeah, the only time Google is better is if you're searching for something that's only got 3 letters.

It's funny though, when you google search "RPG Maker VX Ace sliding puzzle", that article is the first entry that shows up.

*sigh* Finally ... fame comes to me :)


I guess it's all in the search terms. It shows up in response to "Sliding Puzzle RPG Maker" but not to "Picture Sliding Puzzle RPG Maker"

Definitely glad I haven't released a few of my plugins that are technically done. As I learn more, I find ways to make my code more efficient, and in one case so far, discovered an existing function that did EXACTLY what I created my own function to do.
So I was kinda recommended a manga to learn a few drawing tips, I dunno if it will actually work, but I'm liking the story lol

Episode 16 let's go! We're making an RPG in RPG Maker MZ! This week... even more mapping, we're almost done with all the mapping for our first dungeon!

I have big news. I just got hired at a Mexican restaurant! They're like Chipotle but a bit different... and my job will be taking orders some days, delivering food other days, and of course, making customers happy. My orientation is on Tuesday. Once I start, I might disappear from here sometimes, but I'll always try to come back!
