Getting frusterated once more :)...

When a character is killed and the task to run when the character is killed sends him to room HIDDEN. The problem is I dont want the character to move to room hidden. There is no action on the "death" task to move the character to room hidden. Is this just a default setting for anyone killed to move the character to room hidden? If it is, is there anyway to bypass it so the character will not be moved to room hidden when the "death" task initiates, until an action tells the character to move to the hidden room. Anyone understand what I'm trying to say?

Not really. A bit more detail might be helpful. Like... are you using the battle system or have you got a series of tasks which handle everything?

Basically the task to run if killed does not send the character to room hidden by any ACTION. Yet the character is moved to room hidden, I'm thinking by default because he has died. What I want is for the character only to be moved to room hidden when i apply an action telling the character to move there. Not just because the character "died".

Yes I'm partly using the default battle system but, I'm also using a custom made battle system also.

I've never used the battle system unfortunately. Have you tried making an option that the task to run moves the character to the same room as the player?

Yes, I tried that. Since the character is already moved to room hidden though from dying he just goes into the same room -hidden again. I've even set up an event with a task after he dies to move him to any room. The character remains in room hidden though. Almost like if the battle task to run on death occurs he is always dead, and you cannot take him out of room hidden.

Check out a demo Mystery posted on the demos page called Back From The Dead. It might have what you're looking for.
