    Moving pictures in other ways

    thanks andar, the movement i'm looking for is, how would you say it, parabolic? big natural curves? kes thanks for this -- i hadn't considered having it be an event, but that makes sense. the problem i think is that a dragonfly might indeed move a bit differently from a broadly-curving...

    Moving pictures in other ways

    Hi! Is there any way to move pictures other than in a straight line, zooming, or rotating? I'd love to create a more complex movement pattern (such as just a buzzing fly), but I'm not sure what other options there might be out there that aren't obvious. Certainly open to a plugin but always...

    How to add an enemy mid battle behind existing enemy and have it move

    So I've tested out the script call for moving the enemy, and I'm afraid I can't get it to work. I'm using the following conditions to test: So when the main enemy (1) is at half health, enemy 2 should move down. There are two enemies on the screen, which I suppose are considered sprites 1...

    How to add an enemy mid battle behind existing enemy and have it move

    Wow this is amazing that this script call exists, I would not have guessed. I will give it a try -- in the meantime, is there a way to add the enemy mid-battle behind the existing enemy? That way I could use this script call to move the new enemy out from behind. Thank you so much @coyotecraft !

    How to add an enemy mid battle behind existing enemy and have it move

    Specific thing I'm trying to do but not having luck. I'd like to have an enemy appear mid-battle (easy), but I'd like to have it appear behind the existing enemy, and emerge from behind like it was hiding there the entire time. Might anyone have any ideas how to accomplish this? Thank you...

    Large Choices

    Hi Hime, there's a very interesting, repeatable bug that breaks this wonderful plugin. If an event has a large choice, the most recent show_text the player has seen can not be in the "middle" position of the screen. If it is, when the large choices are shown, only the top group of choices will...

    After Equip, remain in menu

    Thanks for this ... I've done some testing and isolated the problem. If that means this post needs to be moved to plugin support that's fine but I don't think that is necessary here, I think this can be solved with script calls -- still need help though :LZSgrin: I'm using a very simple but...

    After Equip, remain in menu

    Hi all, After equipping an armor, the menu totally backs out all the way and closes, which is really disruptive to game flow. I have to think that tons of other people have encountered and solved this, but I can't find any mentions of it (since I think it's a weird thing to find the right...

    Picture rotate while moving -- like old-timey newsreel

    Just a quick question to see if I can do this with stock eventing -- I'd love to have a newspaper headline simultaneously rotate while moving (enlarging). I know I can do either one independently but I haven't had much luck with the image starting small, then rotating and enlarging until it...

    Randomizing system sound effects

    So before I post a new thread in the plugin request forum, I wanted to confirm whether or not anyone following here had access to the Lecode Random Audio (and necessary parent) plugin. Their plugins seem to be behind an access request wall, and despite attempts to reach them, I haven't been able...

    Randomizing system sound effects

    This is an almost insanely perfect find, thank you! The creator requires to request access to the file but if that goes through this ought to be solved -- will report back ASAP!

    Randomizing system sound effects

    I'm a big fan of randomizing things, so I was wondering if it were possible to perhaps use a script call to get MV to choose between a random set of SE's to use for, let's say, save game. I know this feels like a plugin requesty sort of thing but every now and then someone comes up with a...

    Problem with Player Touch events

    It really IS odd! I tested it real quick with msg windows, and no it doesn't reproduce the problem. But go ahead and try it yourself! If a player touch event triggers a common event with a sound effect, it will play several times. It would seem to be a bug -- like the engine isn't handling...

    Problem with Player Touch events

    Thanks ShadowDragon just this simple wait at the end of the event solves everything. I actually can get the wait down to a small number which doesn't affect gameplay at all. Just the simple humble wait solves so many problems! Solved :) Thank you so much!! Though I'm still weirdly curious about...

Update on the Unity thing: I had to redo all my map graphics for Unity because the originals were from XP, but it actually looks so much better now in Unity, so I genuinely might make the switch.
Messing around with fragment shaders (filters). This thing is HUGE and I'm surprised almost no one makes good use of. Even the number of plugins that do this stuff are limited.

There's 7 main areas in the game that are all connected. This train get's you from an underground lab to the center of someone's subconscious. inside the train you can talk to some of the passengers. but going to the top of it, there's battles.
Speedrunning all character portraits just so they all have the same quality. Not sure if this was a good idea, but now I'm almost done.
We now have a gameplay video!
