I want to make a scene where there is a magic show, and the entire room darkens except for the magician up on the stage. Is there any way to tint the screen to be darker and leave a select circle or light in a specific place?

Use show picture with a picture that is mostly black and only transparent at those areas you still want to be visible.

Is there a picture like that in MV already or would I have to find one?

There are plugins for lighting effects that might do the trick. Otherwise, you'd have to create your own picture.

Just open up GIMP or Photoshop, make a new image at 816x624 size, transparent background, then fill it all with black. Then use the eraser tool on certain areas to get your image!

The player isn't but it would be possible to turn the player invisible underneath the event.
Good idea. That might be the best way.

I don't have Photoshop or GIMP so i'll get the plugin. I have one like it where it makes the screen pitch black except for the players light so this will help when its darker than day but not pitch black.

GIMP is free, but the plugin is probably better.

Paint.net is also a great alternative to Photoshop and it's free

That's true, but I use GIMP, which is free, all the time for my resources, and it works really well. (See my signature.)

Sigh gonna have to scrap a big thing for my battle system but that's fine, I can event it all just gonna take more time than I'd like. But that just leaves room for more cosmetic stuff so it's not the worst thing in the world.
