I am making a Survival game where i want to hide some of the map along the edges. So, I want to include a Black Fog Graphic around the edges of the Screen, How do I event this ? Lets say I already have a Picture of a Black Fog Border on 4 edges that covers the entire Screen.

How do i keep it pinned to the Screen so that it never goes away ? I know I could just insert the Picture using an event but is there a better way of doing it so it stays there for the whole duration of the game, Lets say like make it move with the Player's Position, Keeping the Player always at center ?

PS : I don't mean a "Fog of War" like effect, more like the Border of an Encyclopedia instead.

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but you could try the Khas Advanced Lighting plugin!
There's a really helpful tutorial page on his blog that runs through all of the plugin commands and features you can use with this plugin. I believe there's a player lantern effect, as well as a general ambience/fog of war effect that you could utilize to create that sort of feel.
In addition, you could also use the Terrax Lighting Plugin, too!
Here's a video showing off what Terrax Lighting does.
You could also combine the two if you want!
Hope this helps~!

Hi!
If you want to the picture stay with the screen(when the player moves, the picture moves too) so your best shot is really with the picture command. This is the best way.
And the picture will remain on the screen as long as you don't erase it.

welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
some test stuff. Empty for now. My other project (this project) needs more attention. The lagging really kicks up when I try to capture gameplay. ✨

When your side job becomes more interesting than your dayjob and you think "do I quit again or finally actually do the same thing for more than five consecutive years..." I don't think I'll ever be able to say that though, I just cannot stick with one thing like you're 'supposed to'.
