So a part of this dungeon involves pressing buttons to move storage containers located elsewhere. At the beginning of the puzzle, one button corresponds to one storage container (which is what I'm focusing on at the moment). So, I have each part of the storage container as different events and I tried to link them (and the button) through a conditional branch. When I go to run the game, I go onto the button but the storage container doesn't move.

I am, admittedly, inexperienced. So, I thought to reach out and get some advice on the matter. I have attached pictures in hopes that that would help.
I am sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you and have a great day. :)

Um, to move the box you need to activate that switch that you've used in condition branch. You didn't do that. Switch name is not the same as event name. On button event page, add command "Control Switches" and set that "CargoStorageBox1" switch to ON there.

dont have the button turn on a switch and the switch move the crate.
just have the button event move the crate and then turn on self switch so cant step on it again.

i foresee 1 problem you might run into with this. you will need something to have the crates remember that they have been moved the next time you re-enter this map.
this can be done with either separate events so after the crate moves that event gets turned off while the event it moves into gets turned on. (see screenshots)
or could use a plugin that saves event locations

One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
anyone know of a place I can promote my game? sorta like game awards but for indie devs, like a place where I can drop a trailer and like stir up some hype

That moment when you came up with a very good game title, but when you searched it, it has already been used... T.T
