I am not sure if it would work if you have VisuStella's TPB or ATB set up, as row formation depends on the YEP Battle Engine Core, which is incompatible with VisuStella MZ's TPB and ATB battle systems.
Aaaaand I completely forgot about the RMMV Chicken Rave my brother decided to implement in a parody of my VERY FIRST UNFINISHED project. We could not escape the chicken rave... The chickens would block the ladder...
I love how I can look up a problem I'm having with my game, find a post from like six years ago that addresses the issue, and the solution provided still works in RPG Maker.
It's times like those that my life feels really easy XD
