    Any chance it could wait for BGS to finish as well?

    I ask because RMMV can pause and resume BGM and BGS, but apparently not SE or ME (at least no one on the forums has been able to do so). I need to be able to pause and resume narration (which I’m putting as a BGS for now), and I also need the game to know when each narration clip is done playing so it can move onto the next screen.

    Slower machines lose frames and so I’m leery on using frames or seconds. I’d rather just let it know to go to the next screen when the audio file is finished.

    If this isn’t doable, no worries. Thanks for the great plugins either way. 🙂

    Hi sir Sumrndmdde!

    Thank you very much for this awesome plugin, it saved me a lot of “wait”.
    Is there a way for the “wait” command to still continue processing even if the character has left the map?

    Is there a way for the plugin to wait until a song has finished playing once?
    This would be useful for implementing something like Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne’s battle theme, which has 7 variations of the main chorus, each one being randomly chosen once the previous one finishes playing.

    The randomness part is easy enough, but waiting for the exact moment when a song finishes isn’t possible in vanilla, leading to half second pauses before sections…

    First, and foremost, I love all your plugins. Now, is there a way to say something like “Wait for a Random Time Between 3 minutes and 10 minutes”? Thanks in advance!… Oh and does anyone else find themselves making the fart noise along with the video at the beginning?
