Hi guys,
I need some help.
I am not an expert in codes, so I ask you to be patient.
I need to necessarily change the RPG Maker MV internal directory.
I need that the .png images I choose should not be taken from the "Pictures" folder but from the "Titles 1" folder.

Can you tell me how I can do it?
Thank you so much

Code:
ImageManager.loadTitle1(filename, hue)
That would load from "titles1"

Are you saying you just want all pictures to be taken from "titles1" when using the Show Picture command?

Sounds like an XY problem. Why do you need this? We might be able to give you a much better solution instead.

hi CT_Bold,
Thank you for answers,

that's right, I want the show image command to take the "titles1" directory.
as well as to set a parallax background it must also take from the "titles1" folder.

I did not understand, however, where this command should be dictated, I thought one of the .js files should be modified.

as with iOS 14, there is a problem with the "Picture" folder, in practice once converted on iOS they are no longer read, while the files in "title1" are.

I believe there is a directory conflict, which Xcode does not provide access to the device library.
after trying everything, I came up with this latest idea..

Sure I can make a plugin for this but in the editor it still won't show the files in "Pictures" unless you have a duplicate image in both directories at the time of using the "Show Picture" command. would that be ok?

To solve that issue you could try renaming "Pictures" to "pictures" as it's most likely an issue with "case sensitivity"
Also make sure it really is saved with the lowercase "p" by renaming to something different first like "pic" then change it to "picture"

I would be very grateful to you!
At this point it suits me as the project is already complete but I just have to update it to solve this problem.
At this point I would prefer to change the background parallax image directory from "parallaxes" to "titles1".
Is it possible then?

mmm...I try immediately,
thank you.

UPDATE:
I was wrong, the folder already has a lowercase "P".

@ct_bolt
reflecting, it is not possible to change the name of the folder from which it refers?
So instead of "Pictures / pictures" I call it another way such as "storyboard"?

This help? CTB_ChangePictureDirectory.js
View attachment 161398

You can also show pictures via the script call:
Code:
$gameScreen.showPicture(pictureId, name, origin, x, y, scaleX, scaleY, opacity, blendMode)
This would avoid the need to have the pictures also in the "Pictures" folder.
thank you very much, could you also me for the "Parallaxes" folder?
so that it always takes from titles1?
* I will insert duplicates as you indicated.

Now does both pictures and parallax folders :)

v1.10 - CTB_ChangePictureDirectory.js

Should work as needed :popcorn:
ok, I'll try now and I'll tell you.
One question, so I leave my PNGs and duplicate them in the "titles1" folder and then also put them in the "parallaxes" folder for example.
But when I go to select them in the map settings, the "parallaxes" source will appear anyway, right?
after that your plugin should take the file from the titles1 folder though.

Am I saying good?
Thanks again!

Yep sounds right to me :)
Only on editing will you need to have the duplicate files though.
The final export you won't need duplicate files.

Version 1.20 now has separate parameters now

thank you so much.

I've tried with this alternative too but nothing I can't figure out why it doesn't work on iOS 14.x.
My all PNG images are not displaying properly, the screen flashes black and white.
While for example if I start a battle as an example so to test, the image loads correctly as it is also PNG!

A mistery.

I think I've got my hero designs pretty much finialised ( still got some tweaks. ) In the end it'll be the four outfit colour variants with four different skintones.

I'm a bit conflicted. One the one hand, it's quite visually cool to make bodies of water that the player can interact with by going into it. However obscuring the player character from a gameplay perspective is pretty bad. Hmm... There's the option to make the area around the player visible, but then that kind of defeats the purpose of submerging them. :unsure:
