Heretic's Map Death
Authors: Heretic
Version: 1.0
Type: Misc Add-on
Key Term: Misc Add-on


Its pretty simple.  If everyone in the Party is Dead, you get a window that appears that tells you that your Party is Dead.  Then it goes to the Game Over screen.


  • Allows Game Over from Poison / Slip Damage Effects on the Map Screen

  • Feature can be Disabled with a Game Switch or changing the Script Settings

  • NPC's, Events, and Animations still occur while the "Your Party Is Dead" message is displayed, but Player can not move and has no access to the Menu.

  • The "Your Party Is Dead" Window will display on the opposite side of the Player.  If the Player is on the top of the screen, the window will display on the bottom.  Likewise, if the Player is on the bottom half of the screen, the window will be on the top.  This was done in order to keep the Player's Character visible to the Player.

#      Sunday, August 26th, 2012
#  ---  Overview  ---
#  This script will bring up the Game Over screen any time everyone in your
#  party Dies, due to Poison or other Damage Slip Inflicted States.  It can
#  be turned On and Off with a Game Switch, or simply set to true for being
#  on the entire time.
#  -----  Features  -----
#  - Customizable
#  - Other Animations still take place on Map Screen
#  ---  Instructions  ---
#  Change GAME SWITCH to ON to allow Game Over when everyone in your Party
#  has died at any time for any reason.  It can be turned off for places
#  that wouldnt make sense to Game Over if Party Dead, like In Town.
#  Switch Number can be changed to whatever Game Switch Number you want.
#  ---  Options  ---
#  WINDOW_DELAY - How long to wait between Death and Msg, and Msg and Game Over.

Put above Main.


Should be highly compatible.  It does Alias several key methods, including Game_Map update.  If the Game_Map update is fully redefined by another script, it wont be compatible unless this script is placed BELOW that redefining script, but Aliasing it should be just fine and shouldn't cause you any issues what so ever.

Author's Notes

This script is set up by Default to use a Game Switch, so by Default, Game Switch 20 MUST BE ON for the Player to die on a Map Screen from Poison / Slip Damage Effects.  The idea behind using the Game Switch is that the Player can continue playing even if the entire party is dead, but they've managed to make it to an area of expected safety, like a Town where people would help them.  I believe that Disabling Map Death in Towns adds a way of balancing the difficulty in games that go to a Game Over screen when the entire party is dead.

The screen will also slowly fade to Red when the Party is Dead.  It should work just fine with any type of color adjusted screens, just adds a red tint.  If you are feeling really frisky, you can even customize the "Your Party Is Dead" message to display something else, or different languages, but you'll probably need to reposition the text accordingly to make it fit the window.
