I have the following script in VX Ace:
when /<down\s*(\w+)\s*(\d+)\s*(\d+)>/i # <down Damage4 3 2> in note
@down_name = $1
@down_x = $2.to_i
@down_y = $3.to_i
When it runs, those variables are populated correctly with the regexp results.
Does anyone know the logic behind drawing the shadow tiles in VX?
I notice there's no shadow pen and no shadow layer like Ace and later engines have, so the game must do all the calculations at the time the map loads.
Hoping it's not too complicated.
I have a script that looks something like this:
graphic = page.graphic
When it runs, the output for character_index, direction and pattern are all correct, but the character_name is always blank. This is...
What I want to do is have a web page with some UI elements, detecting...
The store page only shows one screenshot, and also says some Trinity tiles are the same as MV's.
Do the outdoor tiles all have the square cliffs like MV, or rounded?
Is the art style / colours compatible with FSM?
I'm making a plugin in MZ where one of the parameters is defined as:
It is showing up correctly in my plugins.js file.
In my code, I've added
var allValues = params.allValues; // after getting all the parameters...
Some of the audio DLC says it can be used "in other engines of your choice".
Can I use these for things not related to game making? For example, as a background track in a completely unrelated youtube video?
I noticed a couple of days ago that the image in my signature is no longer showing, but now appears as a broken link.
Someone else just commented on one of my tutorials that they cannot see the images. I looked at this post just a few days ago and the images were all fine, and today they are...

Sounds like an interesting bundle - can...
While thinking about porting my MV plugins to MZ (and some to Ace and VX and maybe XP as well), I realised some of them could be tweaked as well as made to be more user friendly.
If you've used any of my plugins and have suggestions for simple enhancements, please post them here so I can start...
Got a new computer arriving soon - hopefully will be installing all my program this weekend. Debating whether to install Steam or not ... what do you think?
I really don't like the platform at all! So looking for folks to sell me on the benefits - what am I missing if I don't get it, and...
I really don't know where to post this, as it's not a request or support ... but anyway.
Do you use any of my plugins for MV and would like to see them for MZ (if the engine doesn't include that functionality by default)? Please comment below which ones, so I can prioritise.
Does anyone have links to good tutorials that show how to edit existing sprites? I'm thinking poses that would often be in a game but not be made by a character generator ...

My art skills include making lines and shapes with paint.net so...
I have just installed XP on a different machine, and by default (and without asking), it put the RTP into Program Files.
I would like it to be on my second drive, so I have copied the folder over there, and renamed the original.
When I start XP it tells me it can't find the files, but I don't...
I'm planning on making a few tutorials and maybe some videos (if I can find some good free screen capture software - haven't started looking yet).
I've got a list of things, but thought I'd put it out there to see if there's anything you see coming up over and over in the forums that people...
Is the free Steam key with a purchase of MV from the web store a permanent thing? I thought it was only temporary and went away, but understand it came back (don't know when) - is it staying for good?
Is that just a thing with MV, or does it apply to the other game engines as well...
I'm using the light theme.
When I'm writing a post, and I want to select some text to erase, the highlight color is dark, but the text color is also dark, and I can't read what I've selected.
If I get an alert and click the icon in the top right corner, they appear as light text on dark...
Okay, this has got me stumped.
On the previous version of the forum, I could search for posts without using a keyword, where the author is me. I could then filter the results to remove my replies to other people's threads and only see threads that I started.
I can't figure out how to do that...
Does this not work? I thought it did.
I can copy sections of maps to other maps within the same project, but if I try to copy to a different project, it doesn't work. The selection rectangle when I move over the map in the new project is only one tile, rather than the correct width/height...
