I don't really explain things very well at times, so I'll make this as simple as I can.

All I'm looking for is a way to construct a simple, one-key-press QTE. It would be in a situation similar to this: A counselor is walking down a path/hallway/etc... when Jason shows up by surprise. The standard Slash Physical animation plays, and the counselor gets hit unless they press a specific key (preferably Enter) to dodge the attack.

I found this video about QTEs, but he's using MV instead of Ace, and the attack doesn't come from a projectile.

Why not use simple events for this? First, when you have to press the button when switch JASON is on. Second, parallel, where after a few seconds (when JASON is ON) gaves you hit/game over.

I tried, but am having issues with getting it to work. I first tried this:

Switch is flipped that causes Jason to show up. Then the animation plays and a second switch (we'll just call this second switch 'Attack') is activated, which activates a PP event that only turns on when 'Attack' is on. In this PP event is a conditional branch for whether a specific button is being pressed. If it is, the screen flashes blue. If not, it flashes red (obviously that's not what the end result will be, but just having it flash blue or red let's me know if I'm on the right track or not). Problem is it always flashes red even if I'm holding the button down the entire time.

But if you are all three above (and more) you cannot allow any distractions in your life.
After working out some initial confusion, I managed to get Yanfly's Improved Battlebacks successfully working on a test battle, changing the battleback and getting it to scroll during combat. This means that I can have graphically dynamic battles on moving platforms, like the roof of a train or the deck of a ship/airship...

MV's plugin command setup is the current bane of RETRO's existence. To a degree, so is MZ's. Especially when trying to make MV's plugin command interface play nice with MZ plugin commands with complex arguments.
