This plugin is great but is there a way to do the excact opposite? I would like to use a static enemy battler as an SV_actor battler.

Hey, game devs! I wrote a blog post about my low-tech solution to the weapon and attack motion problems I was having. Let me know if it helps!

I've installed this plugin and it is AWESOME! I was just wondering, I looked at the wiki and I couldn't figure out how to make the enemies SV_Actors or SV_Battlers. Could you please help?

Do you have everything correctly set up, even the animated battle packs? If so, when you make an enemy you go into the note section and put
<Sideview Battler: X> So one of my character's SV_Battler sprite sheet [the sheet for sideview battles] is filed under Shi. So in order for Shi to appear it's <Sideview Battler: Shi> it's confusing but I got it to work. Put some random enemy in the battle image zone in enemies as a placeholder, in troops put it somewhere than test. If everything goes right you'll see your enemy, however the sprite sheet for the battler must be in sv_actors and make sure it's capitilized where it's supposed to be or else your battler won't appear.

Apparently I found a solution to the weapons. Instead of downloading the plugin, I downloaded the demo and copied the plugin from there. Now it's working.

Okay, so I'm kind of jumbling between Yanflys version of this, and this persons. The thing is whenever I try to make an animated SV Battler, it would work and the sprite would show up and everything, but, the battlers facing the same direction as the actors.

I don't know if this is some work of some of my other plugins or just my game itself, nonetheless its getting annoying and I cannot find any help that works. Anyone, got any idea on how to fix it for this version of that plugin, or a link to another page where someone else as a solution to this problem.

@TechnoRad The author left this plugin long time ago. It's out of date. And Rexal haven't been on forum since 2017.
So there is problem in plugin.

I enjoyed this plugin, thanks brother. I'm new to RPG maker, and this was just what I was looking for.

Animated Enemies - v1.15.51 / v1.16.3a
Rexal


Intro - Tired of boring static enemies? Mix it up with some ANIMATED ENEMIES.



What's new:
- Added the SV Sprite tag which lets you specify the image you want to use, removing the admittedly silly requirement where you had to have a matching sprite.
- Potentially fixed issues with sprite flipping.
- Enemies are no longer synchronized when they breathe or float.
- Enemies are able to actually properly equip weapons now.
- Enemies without weapons will now be barehanded instead of using the first weapon in the database.
- Caused a weird bug with my Visual Equipment plugin where EVERYTHING is flipped, though I'm pretty sure that's not this plugin's fault.​


Github Repository - Here

Wiki - Here

Previous Stable Release(v1.15) - Here

Latest Release (1.16a) - Here

Demo(for all my plugins) - Here


Features

- Works in both Front and Side views.
- Enemies are animated and can use SV actor sprites.
- Define what enemy isn't animated.
- SV Battlers are automatically flipped so they're facing the heroes.
- SV Battlers obey your hue settings.
- SV Battlers can use weapons.
- Static Battlers have a customizable breathing effect.
- Static Battlers can have floating animation similar to rm2k3.
- Enemies can be scaled.

Note: Even though it's called SV, it'll still work in the front view. That's just what MV calls that type of battle sprite, so that's what I call it since I don't have a better name for it.



Parameters
Debug - Will write to the console if true. This is so that you can see if everything's working correctly.

No Movement - If set to true, this prevents enemies from moving whenever they perform an action. Can potentially be overridden by another plugin.

Enemies Celebrate - If set to true, SV enemies will play their victory animation when you're defeated.

Static Enemies Breathe - If set to true, regular enemies have a breathing effect.

AGI Effects Breathing - If set to true, enemies that have a higher agi stat will breathe faster.

Scale Statics by Distance - If set to true, this will shrink enemies by how far they are from the bottom of the screen.

SV Enemies Collapse - If set to true, SV enemies will always play the default collapse animations.

Damage Slows Down Breathing - If set to true, enemies will breathe slower the more damage they take.
Note tags

General Enemy Tags


Enemy Scale: amount
multiplies the size of the enemy by this amount.

Example: Enemy Scale: 1.5

SV Battler Tags

[sV Animated] - LEGACY
Makes the enemy use an SV Actor. You must have an image in img/sv_actors that matches the name of the one you used for the enemy in the database!
SV Sprite: sprite

Makes the enemy use the specified SV Battler. You do NOT need to have a matching image with this tag.

[Collapse]
Lets the SV Enemy use collapse animations regardless of parameter settings.

[No Collapse]
Prevents the SV Enemy from using collapse animations regardless of parameter settings.

In other words, if you set the enemy's image to Bat, the sv_actors folder needs to have an image named Bat inside it, otherwise it throws an error.

SV Motion: motion
Specifies the SV Motion an enemy uses when attacking. If this tag isn't used, it uses thrust.

Example: SV Motion: swing

SV Weapon: id
Equips the enemy with this weapon.

Example: SV Weapon: 4

Static Battler Tags

[breathless]
Prevents the enemy from playing the breathing animation.

Breath Control: speedScale,xScale,yScale

Sets the speed of the sine wave(for the breathing effect) and how much it's
allowed to stretch width-wise and height-wise.

You'll have to play around with the values a bit until it looks right. The
example below is the default settings.

Example: Breath Control: 50,5,25

[Float]
Makes enemies have a floating effect similar to rm2k3's.

Future Plans -

- Extend the note tags to allow further customization.- Segmented Battlers

- Some way or another create a proper hybrid of Sprite_Actor and Sprite_Enemy...


Terms of Use - Free for commercial and non-commercial use.

- Added a param that stops enemies from moving when performing an action for those who don't want that.

v1 - Initial Version






Make sure the main plugin is named animatedSVEnemies.js, otherwise the parameters won't be read and it won't animate the statics.

If you use Yanfly's scripts, use the YEP Animated Side-View Enemies instead.


Due to its nature, I have no idea how compatible this will be with other plugins.
You'll most likely have to put this at the bottom of the plugin list.
I'm working on improving compatibility.
I'm having an issue with manually changing the breathing rate, I understand more or less how it works, and I was able to use the "disable breathing" command, but the in-file example isn't very well defined, at least not for a moron like myself, so I was wondering if you could just copy past a working version of the same command in a reply or something.
Like for instance, instead of saying "change x y var/m" You would say "[change 08 9 var/6]"
(just as an example in-case it's not clear what I was asking for)

@LUKElcs it's easy:
Don't use this plugin because it's abbandoned and forgotten, outdated and author is nowhere to be found.
Use Yanfly's or Moghunter plugin instead.

You know, you could just try flipping the sprites in the image, not flipping the image, but the individual parts in the image, you know? It's worth a shot if your still using this.
