      Forum Upgraded!   07/17/2017

      We have successfully upgraded our forum to the latest version! Some things have moved around but don't worry everything is still there, we still need to find updated versions of the plugins we were using previously to restore everything to the way it was. There will be a running topic in the Feedback and Support in case you notice something wrong. Before you do so please clear your browser cache and close your browser completely to rule out a caching issue. Thank you for your patience during the outage and while we get everything back to 150%

  1. Glad to be of assistance!
  2. $gameMap.eventsXy(x, y).length > 0 would be your condition.
  3. So you would benefit from, say, the eventsXy or eventsXyNt functions of Game_Map which tell you what events are at a tile with given coordinates?
  4. Are you looking for the script call that will give you the full movement range or just the one required to exclude tiles that already have other events on them?
  5. Try reimporting it?
  6. Have you opened the tileset in an image editor that doesn't support transparency (MS Paint for example) and then saved it?
  7. Couldn't you make the enemy events parallel process, set two variables to the player's X/Y, then have a conditional branch which checks the variables against the player's current position and if it's changed move the enemy towards the player using a move route?
  8. This is a companion series to Slip into Ruby (my teardown of the RPG Maker VX Ace default scripts) and aims to teach a bit of Javascript while explaining exactly how everything works under the hood of MV's .js files. Part 1: https://rpgmaker.net/tutorials/1230/ (main.js, rpg_scenes.js (Scene_Base)) Part 2: https://rpgmaker.net/tutorials/1357/ (rpg_scenes.js (Scene_Boot, Scene_Title)) Part 3: https://rpgmaker.net/tutorials/1358/ (rpg_scenes.js (Scene_Map)) Part 4: https://rpgmaker.net/articles/1359/ (rpg_scenes.js (Scene_MenuBase, Scene_Menu, Scene_ItemBase, Scene_Item, Scene_Skill)) Part 5: https://rpgmaker.net/articles/1362/ (rpg_scenes.js (Scene_Equip, Scene_Options, Scene_File, Scene_Save, Scene_Load, Scene_GameEnd, Scene_Shop)) Hopefully this will be helpful to people just starting out or who want to understand a bit more about how MV does what it does! Eventually I'll even be tearing down the basest of the base classes like the content of pixi.js and the core classes like Window and Bitmap.
  9. Updated with four new articles!
  10. So it's been a while but I finally wrote the next one. https://www.rpgmaker.net/articles/1351/ Updated the OP with all the currently available articles.
  11. Okay, so you're basically checking to see if the number of tiles the player is from the event is less than or equal to X? Math.abs($game_player.x - $game_map.events[event_id].x) + Math.abs($game_player.y - $game_map.events[event_id].y) <= x That will search in more of a square, will have to actually have VX Ace in front of me to figure out how you'd do a circle search.
  12. Glad to hear it! That'll be 100 pounds, please.
  13. Don't have access to VX Ace right now, but I think this should work: $game_player.x != $game_map.events[event_id].x || $game_player.y != $game_map.events[event_id].y Note that aside from being shorter in terms of event code, this also has the advantages of not requiring game variables dedicated to storing coordinates, and you can move the event around the map without having to redo the code like you would with the first given eventing example.
  14. It depends on your learning style really. Some people prefer to jump right in with an example that they can actually see results from, and some prefer seeing how it all works underneath the shiny exterior.
  15. Hey guys, just wanted to get some feedback on my SoS round 2 track, Battle Stations! This month's brief is as follows: Track restrictions: Impression: Alerting, confronting Instrumentation: Your track may contain synthesizers, percussive elements and contemporary band instruments. Classical orchestral instruments are allowed in the mix, but should not make up the most of the song Game World Setting: Modern or futuristic sci-fi military setting. Video Game Genre: Action Game, CRPG, Strategy Game, Tactical J-RPG Game Instances: You have to compose for an assault type action scenario. And here's what I came up with: http://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/96/locker/battle_stations_v3.ogg I'm mainly concerned with feedback regarding whether I managed to meet all aspects of the brief with the track, but all critique is welcome.
