Picture Scrolling System (Event Based)
I was helping someone who had problems with the Making an Introduction located at http://www.hbgames.org/ccoa/index.htm

This person had made some errors. When I fixed I thought: "Hey, I can make this into a smarter more user friendly system"
By smarter I meant it was easier for the editor to set up. Especially the ability to easily set a rather long wait.
In case you didn't know. You can max set a wait to 999 frames. You can max set a variable to 99 999 999.
By more user friendly I mean giving the user the ability to scroll the text faster and skip it at their command.
Anyway enough talk. Here's the event:
Page 1:

Page 2:


Remember to set the condition of page 2 to Local Switch A is ON.
Also the actions shown on page 2 are just there for an example.

If you ever want to come back to the map you used it in, remember to turn a switch ON and make a new page with the condition or something similar.
You can likewise do the actions in the end of page 1 let the switch turn on and leave Page 2 blank.
It's up to you.

If I have done my comments properly I shouldn't need to talk what you should do to set it up.
Also you may post this wherever you want. You have my permission.
You are also free to extend it, make it more simple, in fact to edit it in anyway.
It would be nice if you try to keep the comments or update them so it's easy to set it up.

Well, that's that.

If the text on the big image seems a little blurred just right-click on the image and select 'Show Picture' or something similar.

Here's the event:


Set the trigger to Autorun:


The actions shown on the bottom of the event are just there for an example.

Here are the pictures I used in the example:

sorry if I am treading on your turf, but what about setting the picture as a panorama, set up an empty map, and scroll through that?

You can do that in RPG Maker 2K3
I personally think it will be conceptually harder and more bothersome.
You will have to take looping into account and you can only have 1 panorama at a time while you can have many pictures showed at the same time.
Remember that you have an max height for panoramas in RM2K3.

You mean scroll the map? I'll say the same thing as Zeriab, you can do a lot more with pictures. Panoramas have set size and you can only have one of them. Pictures are much more malleable.

You have to use a script for getting the panoramas to move in XP.
Naturally, if you have a script you can do it, otherwise you can put it on as fog.
Just add some empty space at the top of the picture and the bottom.

You still won't have as much control as you have with pictures.

Thanks and
I was wondering if you could make an Event Systems Database as a child board of Tutorials. There aren't many of these event systems that I am aware of, but I think that's because they don't have anywhere to go. Zeriab has a Picture Scrolling one in there now which I can't really put in Tutorials Database because it's not a Tut, but if it doesn't get moved somewhere it will just disappear :'(.
