I've created an event scenario that is, quite possibly, one of the greatest mini games ever. This is a cooking contest, styled after the ones in Suikoden II. I cannot even begin to describe how to do all this without taking up three pages of text. So instead I have created a demo, and have placed multiple comments in the event boxes to explain how and why I did everything.
Demo: Cooking Contest Demo
You should find everything you need within the demo here, but if you have any more questions feel free to ask or you may also PM me about it!
I know this seems simple, but it's a rather complex event and, imho, a really really awesome mini game. I hope a lot of you use this! One thing to keep in mind, the demo is RMVX but this should work reasonably with any of the makers.
