Are there any plugins that allow you to resize the player characters battle sprite?

Basically the sprite is far to small, I want to make it so the sprite appears larger in combat similar to how some plugins scale up sprites on the field.

There's this plugin by triacontane can do that. It is in japanese though, but it lets you change the actor/battler's size, altitude, color, n such.

BattlerGraphicExtend.js

I think you have to apply it to a state/item note tag for it to work properly. Not sure if adding it to an actor/battler note tag will work the same, but other than that it's a super useful plugin.

why use a script at all? Why not just use larger battlers directly after resizing them with GIMP or Photoshop or so?

Any plugin zoom will have to use a mathematical resize formula that is automatically worse than the formula used in a dedicated image program. So the quality is automatically worser than using a manually resized battler.

Thanks! I actually did need a program to change the Battler position, mind if I PM you if I have any other questions on the plugin?

Yeah I've realised this, it wasn't working at first so I assumed I couldn't use bigger sprites. I haven't figured out how to add bigger sprites yet but I do know now that it is possible.
(Also sorry to be that person, I'm just a freak about grammar, but worser isn't a word, since worse means more bad than something, it doesn't have a scale like New, Newer, Newest, since worse and worser would mean the same thing.)

The way to add bigger sprites is by creating the image and importing it into your project. @mlogan has a tutorial/information post here. (Also, don't be sorry to be that person; just don't be that person. :wink:)

Thanks!

I guess I was a bit rude and out of line, I'm just really passionate about language, not that it excuses it. Thanks for politely calling me out on it.

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.
