I have decided to create this thread to explain how to do some things that I've seen asked about repeatedly, both here (even though it's the wrong section) and in general support, as well as in random other areas.  I hope I don't repeat anything from other tutorials.  If you want something to be added to the list, please PM me to keep the thread from being filled with requests.  Please don't request something that I'm working on.  Only questions or comments should be posted in this thread.  I may eventually need to split some of these off into separate tutorials, but for now they will all be contained in one thread.

Index
Super Simple
Title Screen, Tilesets, Windowskins, etc. (VX)
Adding Scripts (XP/VX)
Taking a Screenshot (XP/VX)
Last Resort - saving your work when there is a glitch or corruption (XP/VX)

Simple
Changing Modes - ending autorun events, changing graphic (XP/VX)

Intermediate
Common Events and Triggers (XP/VX)

Advanced
Weapon Skills - how to make players learn skills based on weapon equipped (XP/VX)

Yea also i think you should place The Tuts in different spoilers. Cuz for a second i thought the addign scripts was connected to the Title screen.

You know what the most irritating words are?  "To be added" and "Coming soon."  I honestly abhor trying to read a tutorial that seems incomplete, and this... seems very incomplete.

I would suggest that, in the future, you put a bit more together before posting OR just post seperate tutorials.  The title 'Common Questions' tells the reader nothing other than that this will cover some common questions.  Is someone going to walk into a store if they don't know what's in it?

As for the tutorial you posted already...not bad.

I actually discovered that yesterday, but I try to keep people from changing scripts as much as possible.  It can lead to some confusion and some don't feel comfortable with changing default scripts.  I took the spoiler advice. :thumb:

I'm sorry about the incomplete thing.  I started this at 1 a.m., which wasn't a good idea.  I got tired before I could finish what I had planned out.  The title is a work in progress, but I think one tutorial is efficient because, by themselves, most of the explanations wouldn't be long enough for their own tutorial.

I see.  As for length, I feel that a tutorial does not need to be very long (although most good ones are).  I think one should post a tutorial, not based on length, but based on two questions:

"Have I explained this thoroughly and in an understandable manner?" and
"Is this common knowledge to most people?"

If it's not thorough and understandable, then one must redo it.  If it's common knowlege, it's a waste of spae and should not be posted.

If a tutorial follows those guidelines, length should not be a factor.

While this is true, I do not wish to overload the tutorial section.  Some things are pretty basic, but they have been asked about a lot, so I've created a thread to hopefully deal with the repeating questions.  It's much easier just to contain most of them here.  I think of it like double-posting: if you need to respond to two questions, why make two consecutive posts?

I've finally gotten around to adding the Weapon Skills tutorial and I also added a Last Resort tutorial.  Everything should be correct and easy to understand, but tell me if I need to explain things better or made an error.
