Hey guys, I hope everyone is well!

Guys, I have a question. Is it possible that a file like a single map, for example, is for some reason corrupted and the maker won't warn you about it? Or will it always warn you about files that it can't read/are corrupted?

My fear is: I have multiple copies of the project, but I need to delete old ones to add the new ones from time to time after a considerable time of development. My fear is that I could replace/save these projects with corrupted/damaged files.

If the maker always warn me about it, then I'll be at easy hahahaha

Thanks for your time, everyone! I wish you all the best!

Unfortunately I've had this issue before. If the files get corrupted, the maker just tells you that they're unreadable and unable to really do anything about it. I had this happen on VX Ace - not on MV yet, but it was a huge issue with the former.

Keeping multiple copies of your project is an ace idea and I recommend keeping it updated as frequently as possible!

But the maker does warn you, right? Like, if I try to open the project it will tell me that a file is corrupted, correct?

My fear is, keeping developing a project with a file that is corrupted without me knowing about it.

If it does warn me, I'll just delete it and get another copy, no worries :)

Thanks for replying!

Oh, yes yes, it will tell you if a file is corrupted - and the file will look very strange too (tilesets aren't loading, characters files are missing) - it's very very noticeable!

split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
That awkward moment when you're talking about thinking about writing a limited shop stock plugin for MZ and then find out you already wrote one...last May. My memory is so bad.
