$game_player.through = true isnt working.

I'd like to make it so I can call another event's/ player passable with  any event's move route. The Game_Character section itself says it's $game_player.through = true, but it isn't. Can someone help out?

@Blizz: That only applies to script calls where you are assigning a variable to false

The real problem at hand here is that Game_Character's through attribute is only set as a reader.
attr_reader   :through

"Reader" meaning you can only "read" what the value is; you cannot change, or "write", it outside of the class.

If you change that to
attr_accessor   :through

I think you'll be fine. An "accessor" allows you to read and write the attribute.

This is twice you've saved me, KK20... also, I've learned something new.


Another way to do it, if youre not interested in using the Interpreter command_355 fix, is to actually write out a method for it.

class Game_Character
  def through=(arg)
    @through = arg
    return true

Trouble is this only corrects $game_player.through = false or $game_map.event[id].through = false

The problem will still exist if other properties are changed to false by a script call.
