  • I hate common events.
    • Removed a rather-dick-ish “clear all on-screen pictures upon map setup for no real reason” line in MOG’s Picture EX script. Now some maps lag a bit, probably because of lighting images (which MOG’s script didn’t affect anyway). I don’t really care right now.
    • Now there’s an opening credit sequence thing. After various issues (including the event duplicating itself after every map transition and the aforementioned issue with MOG’s script moving all pictures upon map setup), setting it up as a global common event in such a way that it basically runs exactly the way a normal common event does, it suddenly works. Have I mentioned I hate common events?
