Hmm... Maybe my first game should be my horror-ish one. It'd be much less math. lol Mar 19, 2018

      How are there no tutorials for stuff like SAKAN, MADO, and GENE?

        Ah. Well, at least I'm not alone then. Funny, of the three, SAKAN is the most expensive and, if the reviews are anything to go by, the least useful.

        Yeah, it seems fairly clunky and unintuitive. At least you get a bunch of new resources you can use; just need to put them together in something like GIMP.

      Trying to decide if I need a plugin that gives the player a shadow. Do good games need player shadows?

        I'd add a round shadow under the sprite instead

        That would probably be simpler, though I don't have spriting skills.

      Here's the problem with returning to a project every few months. I can't remember how I turned my character's face into a .png file.

      Finding music is the most overwhelming part of collecting resources, it seems to me. You don't know what you'll want until you hear it.

      You know, given how small the VX Ace enemies look in MV, they might actually go better with the SV battlers than MV's enemies.

        The randomness of scale in the RTP has always baffled me. The MV horses are a much better size for Ace sprites, for instance.

      I wonder why the MV BGMs skip from "Theme2" to "Theme6."

        If you downloaded from the site, you missed the base resources download, which has the rest of the music and other graphical assets like the sci-fi stuff. If from Steam, check your dlc folder for the base resources. It doesn't skip, some stuff just got relocated to a different download as pity on slow internet connections. X3

        I bought it on Steam. The only thing under DLC when I go to MV in my library is that "season pass" thing I bought earlier this month. If I look for more DLC in the store, I don't see anything about "base resources." It looks like I've been ripped off...

      May take a day or two of work just to export all the sound effects and other resources that VX Ace gave you and MV didn't for some reason.

      The headbands that come with the MV character generator never look right unless the character is bald...

      Those side-view battlers really are valiant, considering they're smaller than rats.

        They only appear small. They're just standing really far back so as to let the majesty of the monsters be on full display, so you can better admire how well they destroy said monsters.

      Funny how MV's character generator reserves certain expressions for certain genders. I may swap a few out.

      My last two questions in the support forums have dozens of views but no replies. I thought they would be pretty simple...

        Sometimes, even if they are some people likely just assume someone else will answer it. Could be lots of other little reasons to.

        Am I allowed to bump them or anything? I'd really like to get them answered, but the last one's already half a year old.

        Yeah, for the average thread, you can bump them after 72hrs. Other threads like your own personal resource thread can be bumped once a day as long as there are updates. With no answers previously though, you may want to think about why no one answered. Were you not clear enough, etc...

        We must be talking about different things, then. If I click on Help in RPG Maker MV, it gives me Contents and About. If I click on Contents, it takes me to a web page where there's a table of contents on the left, with a bunch of different pages to click on.

        You're right - I thought it was all one big page because the URL was always the same.  That's a pain.

        Ah, always so complicated. In some ways I think this series peaked at XP. But thanks for the advice! When you say "change the UI," do you mean the UI changing because of the change in resolution?

        I see. My only concern at the moment is that the battlers look big enough to suit their surroundings in the background.
