Issue with event touch trigger

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a moving obstacle that ends the game if the player touches it. The problem is, the script only activates if the player actively moves into it. Since you are supposed to dodge it, I want to fix this. I have tried changing the event trigger between player touch and event touch, but the effect still stands. Am I doing something wrong or is this outside the program's capabilities? 

 

Images for those who want them:

Standing and waiting for it to hit me:

Moving into it. You can see the character is facing a different direction:

Any help would be appreciated.

Well, unless I'm misunderstanding this, it seems like modifying your custom move route to have the event "Move Towards Player" should fix it. By that, I presume you mean that you want the event to chase and attempt  to touch the player, rather than having to have the player make contact as you say.

 

I use that in my game because I have visible on-map encounters that I want to be aggressive towards the player rather than just moving randomly.

Sadly, that gives me the same issue as before. Standing still causes the event to never activate. Although, I don't intend for it to keep following the player. I want it to be a point where the player steps to the side and the object rolls right past, meaning that you only fail if you stand completely still. Thank you for the advice, though!

Well, I can't imagine what the issue might be then. It works fine in my game that has visible encounters. In fact, in one place the player gets mobbed and chain attacked even if he just stands there.

 

Hmmm. I'll have to think about this. Good luck!

 

Ah! Just took another look at your screens! Change your event priority to "Same as characters". Sorry to miss that before! Below characters means the player must step on it. :)
