Hey there! I am utilizing SV actors for the game I am working on. By default, whenever using an item in battle, the "wait" animation that plays before performing the turn and using the item is set to the the sprite_actor.motion "wait". I attempted to browse through the JS files in hopes of spotting where this is setup, but had no luck. I am ultimately trying to change the waiting animation for item use to the "chant" motion.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You may be able to get what you need by just editing the frames for the section in question, yes? Remove the one you don't want, and replace with the one you do? I believe it is only calling reference to that set of frames, so this should work.

Of course, that would change your "Idle" for everything...

There are plugins that allow you to reference certain poses for different things, as well, such as the Victor Engine - Battle Motions, which may do what you need?

I wish I can work faster on my game. But I don't want to get burned out. :(
I've been working on something on and off for a few years now, and I've been reluctant to share any details on the project before I had anything playable because I did not want to generate hype only for the project to go back on hiatus. That being said I believe what I'm working on is very unique and pushes the boundaries of what RPG Maker projects can be. Bold claims, I know but just wait.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms :)
