I'm hoping that this doesn't fall under advanced event making, and if it does I apologize.

I'm trying to create a riddle that the player must solve, but instead of choosing the correct response from a list of possible answers, I'd like to give the player the option of actually typing in the response themselves.

Can this be done without the use of scripts?

Thank you.

You can have the player 'rename' their character.

Just make a copy of the character's name, open the name input event command, compare the new character name to the answer, then set the character's name back.

If you want to type using the keyboard, NOPE... You will need scripts to catch the keypress of the whole keyboard, and scripts too to handle the actual typing...


but if it's fine to use the selection window used for naming characters, then Yes...

I didn't even think of doing that!

After some fiddling I got it working very smoothly, thank you!

Please don't create long, boring cutscenes in which characters do nothing but stand around talking.
What if I took a lesson from Half Minute Hero? Let the player get dumb powerful each area, but reset them down to just slightly stronger than before for the next map?
