A downloadable Rpg Maker Plugin

Buy Now$8.00 USD or more

Want to support me?


There are 3 ways for a player to activate an event:

  • Event touch
  • Player touch
  • Action button

If by chance you want the player to activate the event in another way, you would normally have to create a parallel event with the condition:

if (Input.isTriggered ('button name')) // Executes commands.

This plugin gives you the possibility to activate events with another/extra action buttons!

Thus, you can create interesting systems without the need for script calls, complex events full of conditions, or parallel ones.


  • Creates extra action buttons to trigger events!
  • It gives the option to remove the event behavior from looking at the player when activated with the extra button.
  • Three types of action buttons: Normal(FREE), By Distance(FREE), and Remote(PRO)!
  • Can create more than one button for each type(PRO)
  • Remote buttons can also be activated by mouse/touch(PRO)!
  • Show icons above the event head that represents the extra action buttons(PRO)!
  • Multiple remote event selections(PRO)

Does this have the functionality to setup an event to be triggered by another event?


No. This plugin only lets you setup different buttons to activate different parts of the same event.

Oh, ok then :)

ooo feel free to ignore if I'm being a big dumb, but what are you supposed to put in the 'distance' part.

What is the distance measured in? Pixels? a 48x48 square? Do I put distance 1 [which is 48] event space, or is it measured as something else? [tysm]


10/10 would die for u xD


Hi there!

The distance is on tiles. So 1 is equal to 1 tile.

So if you take a look at a plugin parameter like that:

The distance button will be active with a minimum of 2 tiles of the event.

And also, with a maximum tiles distance of the value of the variable ID 32.

Got it?


you are so sweet to take your time to help me. I'm forever grateful =w= spreading the good news about your work as well in the community--you are most certainly a hidden gem.


Thank you so much for your kind words!

means a lot to me! *__*

Good luck with your projects!

I can't seem to get this to work. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Hi there!

It seems to me everything is right. Let us check something:

  1. Are you using the Eli Book above it?
  2. Your event has a lot of pages, maybe there is something wrong there. So just to make sure, can you try to make the setup work on an event with only one page?
  3. Make sure the "Punch" label (both on the plugin parameter and on the event command) has no blank spaces. Like "Punch ".
  4. If everything fails, try it on a clean project, only with Eli Book and Eli Extra Trigger.
  5. If step 4 works, then it is a compatibility issue. Maybe some other plugin is also using the A key, or who knows. You will have to disable one plugin and test the game. If it works, then the last plugin disabled is the problem. Tell me what it is and I will take a look to make a compatibility patch.
  6. If step 4 does not work, take that clean project and upload it somewhere(Like, google drive, one drive, dropbox, etc...) and send it so I can take a look.

I tried to replicate your process, and it worked:

Thanks for getting back to me. I've tried turning some plugins off, but so far haven't found the culprit, if that's what's causing this. Unfortunately, many of these plugins are necessary for my game, so even if I found the one that was causing it, I might not be able to do without it. Here's my list of plugins, do you see any that might cause a compatibility issue?

I also did as you said and tested with a clean event (one page only) and it doesn't work on that either.


Just as looking at the plugin list, at least by their names, I can't say they are interfering.

So, even with the one-page event, it didn't work. I guess you can try on a clean project as I said in steps 4 and 6 of my previous instructions.

Hello, it' seems that i can't activate events at distance if they are bellow players, how can i do that?

Hi there!

Unfortunately, the distance button only works for activating events with the normal priority.

Hey, looks very good, 

Question: this plugin only work with 'Z' key or you have an option in the plugin setting to change it for another keys (to active the event)? 

Second: In order to active the event using this key, do you have to be next to the event or you can active it from far (same map/another map)?

Hi there ^^

For the question one, you have an option in the plugin for you to set any key that you want from your keyboard. Including if it is not any of the default ones from mv. Take a look at the parameters below. For the keyCode you have to enter in a site like this one. Type any button that it will give you the code.

For the second question, you have to active the event just like you do with the Z key. So the event has to be with the Trigger set to "Action Button". The differenc is that when you activate an event with the extra key, you can customize the event for execute different commands, that it will be not executing if you active them with default Z key.

Got it? :)

I got it, thanks for the quick answer.

Great! ^^
