0 => [492, 272], #1
1 => [544, 292], #2
2 => [486, 312], #3
3 => [536, 332], #4
4 => [490, 352], #5
The script will also need an array to exclude certain troops from having fixed positions. Can someone help me with this please?

Asking a script just because you're not in the mood of doing some hard work is the worst reason i ever saw to someone to ask a script.
You can do it, just don't want to.

I recommend positioning them within the troop and then do a battle test to make sure they are in a cool face-off position with the party.
I use 640x480 screen size and position the troops, testing each time to make sure they look okay.

FYI, the time it would take to set up 300 monsters note tags would be longer than setting up 600 enemies troops, not counting the scripter's time to make the script.

And I never metioned note tags, I tought about specify the coordinates on the script editor, see the OP.
Anyway that information about the buffer thing will be helpfull I'll check that.

I still stand by my placement issues. The reasons these work with actors is all actors are generally around the same size. Monsters do not tend to be. Aside from that, you'd be hard pressed to find a method of placement that allows you to place enemies in such a way that troops with less enemies don't seem barren or troops with taller enemies don't get their heads cut off by the top of the screen. Or troops with short enemies don't seem to far down. There's too many things to address, which is why using the troop tab is still a better solution.

While sloppy writing does not invariably mean sloppy thinking, we've generally found the correlation to be strong -- and we have no use for sloppy thinkers. If you can't yet write competently, learn to.
