I’m wondering if i could add a in/out animation. For example that the text box fades in/out when the Message starts/ends. Also, i’m a noob here, so if this is the wrong place to post this, tell me. Any help would be appreciated! Also, i’m using MV.

It would require a plugin. I'm not aware of any that do that, but there are many out there that I'm not familiar with.

You may also want to specify whether you want this in addition to the default opening/closing animation or as a replacement for it. :)

Okay, i’ll try to search around a bit.

I’d like it as a Replacement, but Addition works too.

The only way I could think of to do this for the message boxes, short of using plugins (which is probably what you'd want to do), would be to use a "Show Picture" command to create the background for the text box onscreen in the place that your text is going to be displayed, and have your actual physical text box use the "Transparent" (invisible) background. Use "Move Picture" (yes, Move Picture) commands to change the Opacity of the picture for the text box background, thus getting the fadein/fadeout type of effects.

If you want to request Plugins to do what you need them to do, feel free to post on the "JS Plugin Requests" board. It's important that you explain exactly what effects you need, and how those effects should work in your game, if you're going to ask people to make a plugin that can do it for you.

Thanks! I’ll try soon!

@Pal Do you only want the area where the text is displayed on the message window to fade in and out? Or do you want the entire message window to fade in and out?

Sorry for the late reply, but I want the entire message window.

Hi regarding the 32 bit -> 64 bit
I am running on a 64 bit windows OS and tried doing this conversion. I converted all of the .exe files that I could find in the KADOKAWA\RPGMV folder using the 4gbpatch.exe file. However, after trying to access RPG Maker MV after this conversion, it simply will not load. Do you have any advice or any ideas?
