Does anyone know if there are any plugins out there to change the origin of the camera? By that, I mean where it is centered on th
e screen. I am planning to port a game of mine to MV from Ace, and in that game, the camera was centered more upward instead of the center of the screen as the playing space was in a window at the top of the screen. I knew how to change the camera centering in Ace, but MV is different in it's handling of scripting and stuff. All the camera plugins I have looked into seem to be just for camera effects/movement. If there are none that can do this, then consider this a request.

I'm having trouble understanding what you're asking - can you make a screenshot mockup of what you want?

you can use the event command scroll camara or otherwise cam control by galv or SRD (galv is better in my opinion)
because its more userfriendly. SRD is good, but doesn't always play nice on other plugins and specially in webbrowsers/mobiles)

Seems like the easiest thing to do is take an existing camera script, and displace the camera down a little bit

So when you get this line in galv's code, for instance,
Code:
var y_pos = screenY;
you just change it with a fixed offset

Code:
 var y_pos = screenY+5;
Then you can overlay your menu stuff (with some sort of black space?) as appropriate

Are there even any camera plugins that I could do this in? All of the ones I've found just add effects, like Galv has a camera script that makes it slide, which is not what I need.

Super stoked i just finished my first town in my project, by finished i mean i can always add more decorative aesthetics and the NPCs don't talk yet but the mapping is complete and all the important chess pieces are present!
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
Me: Good!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
Me: Crap.
Should be able to release Haxe MV/MZ next weekend.
It look that somehow MZ tracks are messed up (for example battle4 is obviously a theme, castle2 is a ship, ship1 is a scene and so on..). Maybe they just named them after with some ambiguity.
is there a script call that return how much turn has passed in battle?
