Hello again, I've come to ask if there's a piece of code I can change, or a plugin I can add that will move the post-battle and escape messages to the top of the screen.

Right now, it is positioned at the bottom by default:

Am I to assume this is simply not able to be done?

I haven't tested this but look through 'rpg_managers.js' code for stuff like like this:

BattleManager.displayVictoryMessage = function() {
$gameMessage.add(TextManager.victory.format($gameParty.name()));
};

and add this line before so it turns into this:

BattleManager.displayVictoryMessage = function() {
$gameMessage.setPositionType(0); //I believe: '0' is top, '1' is mid and '2' is bottom
$gameMessage.add(TextManager.victory.format($gameParty.name()));
};

$gameMessage.add(TextManager.victory.format($gameParty.name()));
};
Thank you so much! Is there a way for the victory message to display one line at a time instead of three?

Also, is there a manual or something that shows all possible functions for RMMV like this? I never would have guessed "PositionType" was possible, nor would I have been able to figure out that '0' was top, '1' was mid, and '2' was bottom. I'm still pretty new to Java, but I feel like it would help me learn.

Hm. I'm sorry I'm not very familiar with the default RM battle system so I'm not sure. If you use Yanfly Message Core maybe try adding "\!" in the Terms tab after each victory message that plays in the same textbox? I personally prefer these messages playing in the Battle Log in the background or in an Aftermatch window (there are some plugins out there that do that).

I don't think there is anything like that afaik o.o I think most people who develop plugins and the like became really familiar with the code (aka studying class by class to know how it all works, RMMV gives us open source code so it's all there naked for us to see!). Even small edits can go a long way in customizing your game and it's not that difficult to open Notepad++ and search (ctrl+f) for something specific :D

Good luck!

I see, thank you for your time! This still really helped!

Sigh...I can do everything I need for this game but make actual sprites and tile maps for it. Guess I'll look into hiring someone for that
Goes looking for assets, ends up creating memes. I have priorities?
i'm working on finishing an old game in vx ace (the first game i tried to make in vx ace), and it's making me realize how many things i've come to take for granted in mv (like the additional BCDE tile layer and the plugin manager).
It's ma birfday! Gonna chill and work on my project, editing some icons for my compass rn. Later It's pizza and a movie, maybe Blazing Saddles...
I really hope Google stadia/Amazon luna become successful household "consoles" in the future only because I could see it being 1000x easier to get RPG Maker and other indie games on their platforms & if so I PRAY they have gate keepers to keep half baked indie games out of the mix so they don't end up like steam/itch.io with 1000s of incomplete RM projects that continue to give our community a bad stigma.
