Extends: ESCStatement < Reference
An event in the ESC language
Events are triggered from various sources. Common events include
:setup : This event is always the first to be called each time the room is visited. It allows elements in the room to be prepared before the room is displayed to the player (e.g. starting particle effects).
:ready : This event is the second to be called each time the room is visited. It is run immediately after
:setupfinishes execution, if it exists. Otherwise,
:readywill be the first event to run. Regardless, this event is run after the room is displayed to the player, allowing cutscenes or animations to be run once the room is visible.
