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.

Hi, I am following your videos tutorials serie about coding on MV and I am at the third video. Thank you for making it but's a bit hard to follow since you don't show the whole plugin at the end. I had to screenshot the lines between 110-159 because you scrolled so fast on them.
:rtear:
I'm not sure if I should be happy for MZ, or sad for MV.
Not going to lie.... The update's cool and all, but I immediately ran to Mog's site and was like, "Update! Update! Update!" while breathing on the page of his Star Ocean Battle System plugin. :kaoswt:
Ho boi. I can already see the storm of ugly actor faces RTP customizable facesets from MZ are gonna flood. XD
