You know, when you add a new script to your game, it probably will give you errors.
Tofix these errors you have to start a new game. Is there a way to apply the scripts without errors and without start a new game? Becouse if your game is long it's quite annoying to play it again.

Due to the nature of scripts, we cannot make a godlike function that solves such errors. But for my experience, there aren't many plugins that have troubles with a loaded game. Every programmer is adviced to write his scripts in a way, that Game Devs don't have to start a fresh game. Or at least, find functions to make it more convenient for others.

The only tip I can give you, is to import Yanflys Debug Extensions to make replaying a little bit faster.

Starting over your test when you add new scripts is a good idea anyway. You want to make sure everything still works after thescript change.

When adding scripts you often write code that migrates your specific old save data over to your specific new save data format. It is not always possible to derive all the information you need.
I've done it for a couple of RMXP games so test saves could be used for a longer time before they need to be recreated.

Doing this does require you to be a pretty good coder.

there are only limited ways to prevent the errors when adding scripts, and even the script that do are not perfect.

That is why almost every developer (not only RPG Maker, but every game including big AAA companies) added the cheats/cheat-codes. They are not there as a gimmick to the player, but to give the playtesters a way to speed through the game when they are required to start new for the hundreds time.

In the RMs, the most effective way to do this is to create a cheat map that has portals to every other map, unlimited gold chest and trader and so on, and then create an item that teleports the tester to that map.
and that item you place in a chest at the game start.

then everything you need to do when creating the official version is to remove the chest that give the cheat item before deployment.

Try this script. It has always worked for me. I have never had to restart just because I've inserted a new script -though I do so regularly as it is good practice for a range of reasons.

I ended up needing to do a chapter one world map remake. It's still WIP but coming along nicely. =D
Stream will be live shortly! I will be beginning a play-through of Resident Evil 4! Feel free to drop by!

1st iteration on castle interior in Tiled.
I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
