Hello. So i'm recently having a problem with RPG Maker 2003 games that hasn't happened before.
So, whenever i open a RPG Maker 2003 game, whether it be through the actual game or the RPGM2003 Client, I can't move anywhere. None of my keys work. I cant start the game, and i cant exit it without clicking the X.
I usually close anything that might interfere (I.E Everything else thats open), and still, nothing works.
Can anyone help?
(PS, sorry if i'm being confusing)

With a game or with all rpg2k3 games?

Hmmm... this is a toughie. What operating system are you using?

gadesx - with all games
shinyjiggly - windows 7, it was working just fine a couple days ago, and yes this has happened before, i just waited and did other things until one day it decided to work again, but now i'm actually making a project and i kind of need to test the game to do that.

I have a rare problem recently that show me a message of "not implemented" (in windows xp)
and the projects with rtp don't work, and I did a reinstall of rpg maker and rtp and it have fixed

Hm. That might actually work gadesx, thanks!
But I do want to tinker with this a little more, just to see whats causing it.

The problem has three causes.
1) Auto Event on, and the character is waiting for the event to end.
2) Loop on, and you need to break the loop.
3) Everything's freezing (you have a code that's repeating pretty heavy stuff very fast, and lagging your computer to the point of stall)
-- The latter sometimes happens when you have a call common event that's called by a parallel process (PPs tend to repeat)
If it seems like #3, recheck some of the common events and screen events. Make it so they only operate under certain conditions, they wait a certain amount of time between periods, hide/show screen is set to default (instant/no trans) rather than Fade Out, and events in common events end in End Event Processing, and Parallel Processes end with Erase Event after the first call (don't worry, when you re-enter the screen it'll do this again.

Its not an event. I can't start a new game or move up and down the main menu. On ANY games.

Maybe it's a problem with your keyboard? See if plugging in a different one helps at all. Have you installed anything that may have affected anything like this between the time that it did and didn't work?
I've never encountered a problem like this so I'm not really sure if my advice is helping.

I get problems from time to time where my keyboard will kill out playing an RM game (any maker), and apparently happens to several others. The solution there is to restart the computer, and it works fine. Not sure if that's a similar issue or not, but just wanted to throw it out if you haven't shut down your computer in a while.

Next time this problem occurs, try running this tool: http://share.cherrytree.at/showfile-2704/kbdreset.exe
After running it, it should work again.
