Mac does have Steam. Sorry, I missed that he was on a Mac. In theory, defragmentation on a Mac is down automatically in the background as needed, so I guess it's unlikely to be the issue then.
Yes, i'm on Mac. You think Steam isn't the issue then?

Solar flare was referring to his own comment about maybe needing a defrag if on windows.

Honestly I can't say for sure if steam is your issue or not. I wasn't using steam for anything except RPGMaker so I was able to just leave it behind completely and go with the stand alone version without losing anything. It's definitely something to consider if you don't find any other solution, as it did solve my issue.

Unfortunately, yes...ironically I believe when you purchase straight from the site, you also get a steam code...wish I knew that before going with steam...and considering my own issue with steam, I'm apprehensive to gift the code...don't know if I even still have it. But yeah, I got it on sale, maybe once MZ droos it will be on sale again.

I Checked the site, and apparently the stand alone version of MV is exclusive to Windows. Well ****, formatting seems the only option for now. Do i risk corruption of my projects if i save them on Google Drive?

I don't see why you would, copying a file is copying a file. And nothing within an RPG Maker project cares about its directory structure, so it doesn't matter if you keep the same folder hierarchy when you reinstall and download the project back.

Ok, i formatted my Mac and it actually worked!
I'm not sure of what happened to the computer earlier, but i'm glad is fixed. Thanks to everyone for the help!

I'm a bit conflicted. One the one hand, it's quite visually cool to make bodies of water that the player can interact with by going into it. However obscuring the player character from a gameplay perspective is pretty bad. Hmm... There's the option to make the area around the player visible, but then that kind of defeats the purpose of submerging them. :unsure:
