Formation details

- Invert
Allies are on the left and enemies are on the right. Enemy's position is mirrored about the screen center.
- Side
Allies are placed with the enemy in between. The arrangement is the first and third actors of the party on the right, the second and fourth actors will be on the left.
- Pincer
Allies are placed at the center of the screen. Odd numbered actors of the party turn to the left, and the even-numbered actors turn to the right. Enemy on the left side of the screen from the center to the right, and another enemy appear on the right side to the left. You can not escape unless you destroy either the left and right enemies. Escape by item/ skill can be set by the plugin parameter [].

Hey, I found a way to reverse sprites! I won't reveal this secret, but if you have any SV sprites you need reversed, just notify me. (This is just so the creator won't have to try compatibility with plugins like Yep_X_AnimatedSVEnemies)

Okay, but I can't get that to work. I'm listing this as an alternate in case others have the same problem.

@AcousticJamm I can't confirm whether it's only YEP_X_AnimatedSVEnemies.js that's not working with this plugin or perhaps caused by other plugins conflicting.

If it's a default method (other than using paint program) without plugins, it would be nice to share that knowledge publicly. Not everyone wants to create a forum account to ask someone for the solution unless it's important to them. Or required to download file attachment with an account.

Someone added a feature in Yep_X_AnimatedSVEnemies where you can add notes <Mirror> or <No Mirror> to force mirroring or not mirroring. https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...y-animated-battlers-plugin.81339/#post-975059

It does require a plugin to the program, and it's not exactly free.

I'll still supply the alternative in the case of it not working, which is rare but still possible. Loppy even mentioned it not working.

Yep_X_AnimatedSVEnemies edit that's in attachment doesn't seem to work in the latest build, not sure if it works for older version.

I'm using your plugin with yanfly's row formation plugin. When I setup a pincer attack and then attempt to change row formation my characters go back to the original default position. Is there a way you can fix this? I updated to your latest version and the pincer command isn't even working now.

I fixed this by disabling row formation with a plugin command as soon as the battle started. Battle formations works fine with version 1.5 so I just went back to previous version.

The worst part about making custom stuff is, I can't really ask any of you why a second copy of the character randomly appears only when going SW, S, or SE and changing directions. Been bugging me for the last two days. On the plus side, look at the new random map pieces I made while thinking about it.:LZSexcite:

forgot I drew Riley's message bust ages ago. They might be one of the most unique characters in the game so far.

What hath possessed me to start rapping, Lloyd only knows.

I think the worst part is, I am actually really good...

no... actually, the worst part is writing a song about bum rushing Gandalf to stop Frodo...
I don't even listen to rap.
