Making a smaller test project, how would I make a timed event that occurs after walking around a room for a while. I just want some dialogue to pop up when you do as well as activate switches to let you leave the room, but I'm not sure how to have the event work without doing an autorun + wait ____ which would pause everything else.

You would use a parallel event and have various commands interspersed with wait commands defining the number of frames between commands.

Do something
Wait 300 frames
Do something else
Wait 550 frames
etc.

Oh and put Erase Event at the end if you only want this sequence to run once every time you enter the room, otherwise it'll run again once it reaches the end. If you want this sequence to run once ever, put Self Switch A: ON at the end and create a new blank event page with the Self Switch A box checked.

Thank you, genuinely. I haven't touched RMMV in a year or so, so I'm a little rusty on eventing

I kinda teach this in a tutorial of my project, Learn RPG Maker MV. You need to look at the Events section, then you can take a look at the Switches (and probably Variables) to achieve what you want.

Me watching the game awards.

Gonzo, shut the **** up and show use some Elden Ring DLC. tumblr_422af97288e81470bb4ea56cce38e220_331927d8_500.gif
THE GAME AWARDS AHHHHHH!!!!!
I kept saying I suck at writing stories. But I can't believe I wrote one these days. Feels good now that the winged blonde girl I often share has an actual lore and plot going.
Huge breakthrough! I finally fixed the dimensions on the WEBM used in the cinematic that ends the demo and introductory segment in MC:RIS, around the one-minute mark:



(There's some audio desync because the capture is an MP4.)
Kudos to everyone making game jam games, because this month has been hell for my development time. I have made a cutscene, 2 sprites, and 1 tile.

I guess I've made conceptual progress in hammering out combat roles and having fixes to be implemented (though I haven't done that yet)
