    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:
    [​IMG]
    It automatically cycles through the 3 frames.
