Sometimes, we’d like a little bit more control over the kinds of things that occur during certain aspects of our RPG Maker projects. What could have been easily done through common events is made more difficult because there are no proper triggers to activate those common events. This plugin enables certain triggers to occur from loading a game, winning a battle, escaping a battle, and more.


Introduction


Sometimes, we’d like a little bit more control over the kinds of things that occur during certain aspects of our RPG Maker projects. What could have been easily done through common events is made more difficult because there are no proper triggers to activate those common events. This plugin enables certain triggers to occur from loading a game, winning a battle, escaping a battle, and more.


Instructions


Change the plugin parameters for each of the triggers you want tied to a common event to reflect the ID of that common event. The triggers will be the following along with some examples of how they can be used:

– Load Game –
Will occur whenever the game is loaded. This can be used for things like story recaps, adjusting in-game timers, or checking for updates.

– Battle Won –
Will proc whenever a battle is won and the player returns to the map. Can be used for things like updating certain variables or statistics after battle.

– Escape Battle –
Like the previous but will occur whenever the player escapes battle instead. This can be used for things such as events where the player would have to be on a stealth mission or whatever and escaping can bring them back into a certain spot.

– Close Menu –
Occurs when the player exits the main menu and returns to the map scene. Can be used for recalibrating equipment, making checks, custom events, and more.

– Vehicle Enter –
– Vehicle Exit –
These events will occur whenever the player will enter/exit the specific vehicle. This can be used to enable/disable certain HUD’s while in specific vehicles to give a more immersive feeling.
