Could you please fix the pictures? Thanks
Hey guys...I need to ask which folder to place this light image in? (apologies for the noob question)
I tried it with a generic fire image and it kind of works, and I thought I should put the image in the games picture file but it doesn't show in the list of images I can use for the event. Any help here will be much appreciated.
Little problem here. I remember I had done it before and it worked well, But now the light is extremely dull. In fact its yust an flickering blue or orange shadow and doesnt enlighten anything. Its not even close to the light in the pictures. So what am I doing wrong?
I know it is late to ask something in this post, but I currently need to know how to fix that same problem of lights on tined maps. Can someone help me?yeah which is why I said I don't advise for heavyily tinted maps though I found a way to fix it for events (my auto-untint script)... XD...

I'm here to teach you a very very easy way of doing lighting effects without using any kind of script or complicated stuff.

After this tutorial you'll have something like this:

- Frequence: Highest
- Movement Type: Custom
- Click the button "Move Route..." and place the following commands in order:

- Uncheck "Repeat Action"
- Add this image as the graphic:
Name the file "!$Light 1" if it's not by default.

Insert the Event Command "Erase Event".
