Hey there! I've been messing around with RPGMaker VX Ace for awhile now and I seem to have got stuck on an idea. I wish to have an effect play over the screen when the main characters health is low. Now, I don't mean in battle, but when the character walks around in game. I imagine a heart beat effect, red overlay with veins appearing with every step showing pain. I believe I've seen a similar effect in "Ib" if I remember correctly, but its been a long time since I've played it. Thanks for reading and any help would be appreciated!

P.S. I don't need anyone to make the effect or the sound for me, but I need help with the setup of this general effect.

I'd say you should have a common event that's set to parallel process, and have that check the player's health with variables. Use conditional branches to then display an image/play a sound effect/ tint the screen/whatever you want to happen when their health is low.

Thank you for the help, that actually really did help :D So I guess this thread can be closed.

About the Deer, I had to cut some piece of video due the *swearing* Youtube copyrights issues...
I was listening to songs by Chuck E Cheese's voice actor (Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup) when the meds I was taking for my stomach virus apparently stopped working. I can't take my next dose until morning, but it's no use anyway. I'm officially sick again. Of course, I'll definitely take the next dose either way, but it's useless now.
New profile picture! This time, it's representative of my current project.
I suddenly feel like making a game for little kids: a pointless sandbox of cute animals, silly collectibles, and random mini games.
Anyone else just like, not bother to make games themed around specific holidays? I know I won't get them done in time for it to make sense.
