Expanding This Idea
Here’s an idea to expand string variables to toggle switches:
What about typing commands on a computer or console to open doors, etc.?
I already experimented with this idea, so maybe I can put it into video finally!
How Do RPG Making "Switches" Work?
AmalgamAsh succinctly explains how "switches" work. Although the video targets Smile Game Builder, the same applies to other RPG making software.
Video: How Do RPG Making "Switches" Work? (Global, Local Switch Explanation and Examples!)
Smile Game Builder’s "Local Switch" is the same as RPG Maker’s "Self Switch". Smile Game Builder uses 1 Local Switch and RPG Maker has 4!
Smile Game Builder Tutorial #69: Compass 4 Directions Preset Fix
The Compass 4-Direction common event allows you to display a compass to show which direction the player is facing. There is, however, a flaw in the event where it only works in first-person view and not in normal view. This video fixes the preset to work in both normal and first-person views. The

Compass 8-Direction Common Event
Unfortunately, the Compass 8-Direction common event suffers from a similar problem. I was going to include it in this video, but discovered during recording that it didn’t work. I’ll schedule it for a future video.

Odysee: New Video Platform for My Videos
I’m excited to announce my presence on Odysee to host my videos.
What Is Odysee?
Subscribe to My Odysee
You can subscribe to my Odysee to watch any videos and tutorials I create.
Odysee is a video hosting platform similar to YouTube and, perhaps, a viable alternative to YouTube.
In fact, it acts as a mirror for your YouTube account, but you can also upload your own videos. Additionally, you can create multiple channels more easily than YouTube instead of having one channel and several playlists.
That means that if anything happens to my YouTube Channel, there will be a backup available.
Plans for Odysee
I plan on still uploading to my YouTube account, which is syncronised with Odysee so new videos should also update there.
Additionally, I’m going to upload Odysee exclusive videos, including tutorials and game update videos, starting some time this month!
