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.

Meet the crew...Arrrr!
Who knew modern medieval was an actual music genre? I don't know what the youtube algorithms are doing but for once they found something actually fascinating:
Yay! Got 3 new frying pans, its weird, but I'm so happy about it.
Yelp. I've discovered that I am one of those people who should not be drinking coffee. Took me a week detoxing off of coffee and switching to tea to realize how badly it was affecting me- and I've been drinking the stuff for years. Yikes!
I bought a gaiter with Meijer printed on it.

I'm still a Walmart worker, and I wore it today for work.
