 +====== Behavior of Common Events Called in RPG Maker 2003 Battle ======
  
 +Backup from https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20080325201903/​http://​www.phylomortis.com/​html/​battlece.html
 +
 +In RPG Maker 2003, common events can be called in battle. However, the behavior of some of the events is abnormal. The following table describes the effect of each event when called in battle. "​Normal"​ means it has the effect you would expect. Otherwise, the actual effect will be described.
 +
 +This list is current as of RPG Maker 2003 version 1.09. Some events did not behave as described in earlier versions.
 +
 +^ Event Command ^ Behavior ^

 +| Input Number | Normal |
 +| Switch Operations | Normal |
 +| Variable Operations | Normal |
 +| Timer Operations | * Normal, but when starting the timer with "show timer onscreen"​ checked and "timer runs during battle"​ unchecked, it may look like the command was unsuccessful. It works, but with these conditions, won't give any overt confirmation of its success until the battle is over |

 +| Set Screen Transitions | Normal |
 +| Enemy Encounter | * Crashes the game |

 +| Show Inn Message | Normal |
 +| Enter Hero Name | * The Enter Hero Name screen is shown, but due to a font compatibility issue, Enter Hero Name doesn'​t work properly when running RM2K3 on English-language systems. Therefore, it cannot be tested fully |
 +| Teleport | * The teleport is shown briefly, and then the battle resumes normally |
 +| Memorize Position | Normal |
 +| Recall to Memorized Position | * The same result as Teleport, described above |
 +| Enter or Exit Vehicle | * Ignored |

 +| Hero Sprite Transparency | Normal |
 +| Flash Sprite | * Ignored |
 +| Move Event | * The event with the ID you specify is moved on the map where the battle took place at the end of the battle. Only one move event can be pending in this way |
 +| Proceed with Movement | * Ignored |

 +| Insert Comment | -------------- |
 +| Game Over | Normal |
