I'm trying to do something that I think should be relatively simple: change the default Message Box's position and size (the x, y location and length/width).

I have the YEP and Galv message plugins but those don't seem to offer an option to change the default message box position or adjust length/width of the message window text or graphic. With Galv's Message Styles I can use the \pop[x,y] plugin command to change the position of the window, but that means that I need to add that to every single message in the game if I want a default position and size.

I see @caethyril has a bunch of awesome plugins that do things like move the message box around and customize the menu, but as far as I can tell doesn't have a way to change the message box.

Any suggestions?

then you misread the yanfly message core and its expansions - it contains plugin commands to set default position and sizes to message windows.

Thanks for your reply @Andar . That makes sense, I figured it should be an easy fix. Here's what I see:

I see that you can change the Default Width under "general".

And I see this section as a text code (ie must be place in each message):

Can you help pls me understand how I would change the default message window size and position?

I think I got @Andar thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

plugin commands in YEP ExtMesPack1:

MessageWidth 400

MessagePositionX 300
