So MV has been giving me some problems this year that individually are very minor but collectively pretty annoying and I figured I could ask about them in one thread.

  1. The F1 and F9 function keys are not working so I can't access the little menu to adjust my keypad config and whatnot and I can't open the menu that lets me turn switches on/off and adjust variables from test play.
  2. The CTRL key is not letting me clip through impassable walls during test play anymore.
  3. I've started getting an "Profile error occured. Your profile could not be used because it is from a newer version of NW.js" error message when I test play my game. As far as I can tell it isn't actually DOING anything so I've been ignoring it but it is I guess slightly worrisome. This isn't related to the otherissues.
  4. This one isn't technically a software problem it might just be a change from previous RPG Makers but Alt + Enter no longer works as a shortcut to maximize/window the game? I figured out while writing this post that F4 now windows/unwindows so this isn't a big deal.
  • I'm using version 1.6.2 which I think is the most recent.
  • All of these errors still occur in a "blank" project with no plugins.
  • Super-wierdly, I can't find any copy of NW.JS with a file explorer search AT ALL

This may be an issue with your operating system.
Have you installed any security software or updates recently?

No, not that I know of. I'm running Windows 10 home version 2004 (?) and Windows periodically forces me to install updates, basically dragging me kicking and screaming, like it does not care if you consent so it could be that but I've no idea which update or when. Looking in task manager at the (way too many processes) I see running the only security software I see running is "McAfee Web Adviser".

the windows "on-screen keyboard" app doesn't have function keys? If you don't mean that I'm not sure what you mean.

To access the function keys, press the [Fn] key.
The CTRL key is also there, but there is no way to keep it pressed.

Hey, finally got around to trying the virtual keyboard, no dice, everything is functioning/failing to function the same was with my actual keyboard, so I guess it can't be a driver/hardware problem...

Really, so the problem is probably in some update of your operating system that has been corrupted.

If your Rpg Maker is from Steam, uninstall, restart your computer and reinstall.

Good Luck

...damn...

I'm honestly not sure if I even want to risk uninstalling and reinstalling. I guess the chances it would make things worse/make the program not work at all are pretty low but it's not IMPOSSIBLE to make games around these problems and I really don't trust my luck, especially these days...

But if your version is from Steam (this has not yet been clarified), I don't see why it would cause problems, it is more likely to fix any corrupted file, as the download will be done again with the integrity of the files guaranteed.

Whether or not the Steam version, uninstalling will not affect your projects, as they are not in the same folder as the software.

I typically ask this on my normal social media channels, but figured there may be good replies here. Anyone got any good horror movie recommendations? I've seen a lot, but I always love getting suggestions! Bonus points if you know which service it is streaming on (in the US) - bring on the spOoooOky!
 After a few distractions (and my annual rough second week of October), I’m getting back on track with my OMGC project.
 Am I overcomplicating it? Yes. Am I going to tone it down? Almost certainly not.
 At least the dialogue stuff is almost done. I need to do the map itself, and then all that’s left is combat.
 Getting there!
Creating 3D CGs for Cutscenes. :kaosalute:

I keep wanting to post every song I make for the game and have to hold back on that because at this rate, I'll have spoiled all the really good stuff lol..
