Return LabelThis is a plugin made for RPG Maker MV version 1.6.2
This plugin allows you to call a Go To Label statement in a particular way so that the game remembers where it was called, so that it can be returned to later. Through this, you can (practically) make "fake" common events, but only for the event page they were coded in.
If using "Return: " and "RETURN" as two different things confuses you, imagine screaming the word RETURN whenever you read it.
[Jump to Label: "Return: x"] will memorize its own location and jump to [Label: "x"]. The next time during the event that a [Jump to Label: "RETURN"] statement is called, the game will jump back to the original [Jump to Label: "Return: x"].
Note that this can go multiple layers deep. Every "RETURN" goes to the most recently called "Return: x"
Also note that 'x' is just whatever you want to name the label(s).
Start of Event
Jump to Label: "Return: Random Talk 1"

Label: "Random Talk 1"
Jump to Label: "RETURN"
End of Event

Download (Plugin + Demo)
Go to my GitHub, click on "Clone or download", then select "Download ZIP".
Q: Using "Return: " and "RETURN" is confusing. Can I use my own terms?
A: Yes! Within the plugin parameters, you can change what the plugin looks for. So you can use "Callback:" instead of "Return:", or use "Go Back" instead of "RETURN".
Q: My event is exiting after hitting a [Jump to Label: "RETURN"]! Why?
A: If the system does not have any more "Return:Labels" memorized, a RETURN statement will jump to the end of the event. In other words, the game ran into more [Jump to Label: "RETURN"]s than it did [Jump to Label: "Return:..."]s.
Q: When I put [Jump to Label: "Return: myLabelName"], it doesn't go to myLabelName. Why not?
A: You probably have an extra/missing a space somewhere. (Space meaning:" ")
For example, if you put "Return:" as the first plugin parameter, and you put [Jump to Label: "Return: Food"], the game will look for a label named " Food" instead of "Food".
- Free for commercial and non-commercial use.
- Crediting me is appreciated, but not required. ("KeeganKLM" or "Keegan Mackey"; whichever you prefer.)
- Make RETURN statements with no return do nothing instead of ending the event.
- Somehow make the plugin work per-event instead of globally.
