A simple tutorial on displaying the place you're at when entering towns, etc.

Body

Since one of my favorite videogames is “Chrono Trigger” for the SNES, and I think the map is really cool, I decided to make a tutorial for this style map. There are two ways that I made. They are the:
-The Lazy Way (for those who aren’t as advanced in RPGMaker 2000)
-The A Bit Harder Way (more complicated than The Lazy Way)
For those ho haven’t played “Chrono Trigger,” the map I am going to show you is when you go on the place or town on the main map, it tells where or what it is.

***The Lazy Way***

First, make a place, such as a castle and make an event on that. That event should be an “’On Touch Hero’ Event Start Condition” (remember, this is not a common event). Then for the “Event Commands,” it should say the name of the town in any window message you want that is transparence. Then make a Page 2 with a “’Push Key’ Event Start Condition” and in the “Event Commands,” put a “Teleport Event” and make it teleport to the town. The coding should look like this:

Page 1
[code]
<>Set Message Options:Trnsp,Mid,Fix, Disable Event Mv
<>Messg: (Town’s Name)
<>Set Message Options: (normal settings)
[/code]

Page 2
[code]
<>Teleport: ####: (Place you want to teleport)
[/code]

***The A Bit Harder Way***

First, make a picture that is about 120x20 pixles, 3.17x.53 cm., or 1.25x.21 in. Whatever you prefer, that is fine with me. Make the background black (or it won’t work) and save it in 256 colors. It should have the locations name in any color except black (or #000000 for anyone that is into html. Then make an place and make an event on that. On Page 1, make it a “On Touch Hero” and in the “Event Commands,” show your picture in any location you want it and then wait and the delete it. Then for Page 2, make it a “Push Key” and make it teleport to any place you want your Hero to go. The coding should look like this:

Page 1
[code]
<>Show Picture: 1,(name of pic),({place you want it[I used 160,120]})
<>Wait: (amount of sec.)
<>Erase Picture: 1
[/code]

Page 2
[code]
<>Teleport: ####: (place you want to teleport)
[/code]

I am not sure about this way. If you have any questions, GWMail me and I will help you.

This is my tutorial and if you use this, put my name, final>darkness, in your credits.
