So I want my characters to walk on roof when they climb up a ladder. I have 2 tilesets that are the same except the roofs in the A3 portion are passable in one of them. But the passability doesn't change even though I change the tileset, why?!

there are a couple of ways to do this, but it depends how it is setted up
and the way you feel comfortable with.

1) use 1 switch/variable to define upper/lower roof.
you can either use a switch (if ON), or variabe > 0 to check
the floor level, if switch is OFF, it means, the player is on the lower floor,
if its ON, its on the upper layer, you can trigger this switch on top of the ladder
to walk on the roof, when going down, it is turned off (player touch).

2) use 1 switch and 1 region (between 1-255), when switch is ON, you can only
walk on this region (region that is marked on this roof).
Ocram_Passages plugin might be 1 way, YEP_RegionRestriction as well.
but this depends on the plugin you use to avoid compability issues, you can
event this part too if it's minor and easier as well.

3) create the roof from B-E tileset using events, you can use OFF when above,
and trigger when below, this require roof be fully evented tiles.

there might be other ways as well, but those are 3 of the ways you can use,
and idea's how you can handle them.

in case if it's only for cutscenes, you can use "through = ON", but make sure
to turn it off after you are done, otherwise, dont use it.

Thanks, but I have a question:

to walk on the roof, when going down, it is turned off (player touch).
If I use a switch how does it affect the passability?

The A1-A4 tilesets have their own passability and don't care what you set in the editor.

Try putting your roof tiles into the A4 slot rather than A3 (copy the roof image and paste it into the A4 tilesheet - don't just put the whole A3 image into the A4 slot).

A4 will allow you to walk around on the "top" of the pair of tiles, as long as you have some way to get onto them.

Thanks, that worked! Still pretty weird that it does't care what you set...

It's because it's an autotile with a specific purpose/function.

So the number one complaint I get so far is the levels are simply too large. What's funny is in testing I deemed levels taking too long and actually shortened them. Figuring I could beat them in 5-6 minutes so players would be able to do so in probably double that. I was apparently very mistaken, only one player has mentioned even reaching the second area. Let alone the first boss. :kaoswt:
I don't believe it. I actually did some proofreading in my game - and fixed some grammar errors! I feel so accomplished, knowing I can actually proofread my own writing!
...I've had a bad day, okay? Bad enough for me to want to proofread stuff. :yswt2:
Ughhh, July is not my month. Thankfully, it's nearly done.

Ugh, I opened MV after a few weeks and I'm completely lost on what I was working on.
Does it happen to someone else or am I the only disorganized one around? :kaoswt:
