[XP] Unwanted 'action button' event triggering

Hey, I'm new here -- Couldn't find a solution to my problem through google or by lurking these forums, so I figured I'd give this a shot. Thanks to yuybabe for giving me an invite code so quickly in the chat.

Logical stuff isn't really my strong suit, so the solution may be staring me right in the face, I'm not sure... Here's the issue:

I'm working on a game (in XP) with a lot of objects in the environment that can be interacted with via the action button. I also don't want to use the default RPG-style menu system -- I only need 'save' and 'quit' options -- so I created a parallel processing event in my map that disables the menu and, if the player is pressing esc, brings up a multiple choice dialog box with 'save' and 'quit' options. Works well enough. However, if I'm standing in front of an object that I can interact with via the action button, and then I bring up the save screen through my minimal replacement menu and save my game -- using the action button -- as soon as it dumps me back to the game, the event I'm standing on that lets me interact with the object triggers since I just pressed the action button to confirm my save slot.

The default menu doesn't have this problem as, after saving, it dumps you back to the main in-game menu instead of the game proper. However, if I save while standing on an event that triggers an object interaction in the map, then load my game from the main menu, I have the same problem -- since I pressed the action button to confirm the game I wanted to load, that triggers the event I'm standing on as soon as I load the game.

Given that I have the problem when loading a game from the main menu, I'd imagine the solution would involve changing something in the interactive event on the map... Unless there's a script I'm not aware of that deals with problems like this.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

EDIT: I did notice some similarity to this topic, though it doesn't quite apply as my case involves some of the in-built menus of RPGXP (save, load) as opposed to events.

Start by editing the default script ton remove everything but save and quit. See if that does any good.

Post above main.
It's a bit of a Macgyver, but it should do the trick.

Since there are probably many people that will look at this thread, I'll share a really easy way to fix this.  EVENT ONLY.  Note: It only works for events that dont move around.  For ones that do move around, it can work, just way way way harder, but I wont mention it here.

Make an Event.  Set the Autonomous Movement to Custom.  Set Frequency to Highest.  Click on "Move Route ..." just beow the Automous Movement type.  Uncheck Repeat Action in Options.  Click on "Script", then put this script snippet into the Script box.

Code: [Select]
@trigger = -1

That will STOP the player from being able to interact with that Event, period. 

It doesnt need additional pages and allows graphics for that event to be displayed.  What happens is with your Trigger types, the Triggers either have some form of Player interaction, or they Autorun.  Setting the Trigger to -1 prevents any form of making the event do its evented stuff.

Now, to make the Non Interactive Event do everything in the list of Event Commands, it needs to be fired from another external Event Script:

Code: [Select]
$game_map.events[12].start

When that code is run from another Event, the Commands in that events List of Event Commands will fire.  It works a lot like "Call Common Event", but only on that particular map.  Just dont forget to change 12 to the actual Event ID of that Event you want to Trigger.
