So, I had this parallel event which would activate a common event and go into a loop until it's(common event) fully proccesed(switch HELD).
But for some reason it just wouldn't do that. The event would loop forever even though the HELD was OFF.

After a long struggle, I've simply changed the event's trigger type from parallel to autorun and it worked perfectly fine...
So what was the issue then? I don't get it. 1618431880941.png

The issue is your IF does not encompass the entire event. That autorun is also going to loop forever incidentally unless you add a switch or condition to turn off the event.

? It's not though. I'm erasing it at the end but Autorun doesn't have any problems passing through the loop. I'm always using parallel events and don't remember encountering such a problem.
The loop is there to make sure the common events' values are loaded first, before reading the event's conditional branches, etc.

Hello.
Is the "common event" called by the command the same triggered by "Switch 14: HELD"?

Common event is triggered by the "Common event" command and it ends with a HELD OFF command to exit the loop.

A side story is almost getting into the next stage. Almost everything in this game has real-life references.

Everyday life is full of absurdity. This is just a reflection.
TFW you discover how the script batching works in VNMaker... after you've had the program for almost 3 years.

Writes that the characters have to climb a mountain.

Realized that I have to draw six sets of models where characters are climbing.

At least I know how to draw something. :)
I'm currently scratching my head on how to design plains. What do I even put in plains? Some trees (but not too many or it turns into a forest)? Grass? A few bushes? That's a bit dull.
I'm looking for tutorials but Google didn't seem to find much (or maybe I have the wrong keywords). I don't know how to map plains and I don't know how to learn.
