Hi everyone,

I just started with RPG maker, and I am loving it so far.
Now I ran into a problem while wanting to create an Idle animation for a Boss sprite.

In short my idea was to cycle through the three images of the Death sprite:
upload_2017-6-29_23-30-13.png
In the order 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 2 -> 1 etc..

So I came up with following:

Create event with 3 event pages. All events are run parallel, with fixed movement
Page 1
- No self switch
- Contents:
Self self C off
wait 20 frames
Self switch A on​

Page 2
- Self switch A
- Contents:
wait 20 frames
if Self switch C === on
Self switch A off​
Else
Self Switch A on
Page 3
- Self switch B
- Contents:
wait 20 frames
Self switch C on
Self switch B off

So this worked for me, having a cool idle animation for my Boss sprite.
I was just wondering, is there a way to do this in a less hacky way?

Cheers,
Mendo

You can do that in a easy way, just activate this option in the event page:

It automatically cycles through the 3 frames.

I know someday I'll start working on this...

I'm so happy that I got Steam achievements to work in my game, thanks in large part to the posts by other RPG Maker devs on this issue!
Huzzah! My Tree of Life turned out pretty good!
