in the game im making, i wanted it to be pixelated, so i made 16x16 tiles and upscaled it so every pixel is atualy a 4x4 grid of the same color, now everything is more pixelated while still being 48x48 like rpgmaker mz needs

but characters while walking dont only move in multiples of 4 pixels each frame, meaning on some frames theyre only moves half of a 4x4pixel over and that might make my game look bad

another problem is that characters get moved up by 1 pixel on the screen, which also does not line up

so how to i fix this?

you're mixing up several things, especially the difference between pixels and tiles.

what you want specifically does not exist - there are plugins for pixel movement, but they move single pixel and not 4-pixel-steps. and the regular full tile movement of course.
you can request a specific plugin like what you want, but I doubt that you'll get it for free unless someone has a pixel movement plugin that can easily be rewritten for 4-pixel-steps. But it's a chance.

second, characters do not get moved up 1 pixel - if you're talking about the effect I assume you're talking about, that is a shift by several pixels and intended to give the illusion that the NPCs walk inside the grid instead of the border. That shift can easily be disabled by declaring the sprite to be an object sprite (like doors etc) by placing ! in front of the filename. IF that is what you're talking about, you'll have to test that yourself.

You might be better off using a plugin to change the grid/tilesize, but that is a lot of work and it would make your current sprites useless. But again, it is an option for you...

well i make the sprites in 16x16 and then scale them up so doing it in reverse wouldnt be too hard

thanks, ill go try that

People laughed at me when I said that Activision Blizzard would get bought up by another company if they didn't fire their execs. Now their value has dipped so much Microsoft is willing to buy the company, likely followed by some heavy terminations if they want to purify the current toxic image of Activision Blizzard.

ok hear me out here: if the only way my brain can describe things is like with colors is this normal? Like I've described a smell as "dark green and fuzzy" and a taste as "dark blue" like is this a normal thing that happens to people or am I just going insane?? o.0
I'm sitting here, programming, when suddenly, in the distance, I hear a deep booming shout, "Dovahkiin". In an instant, my mind and body is pulling me away, my fingers twitch and notepad++, almost by itself, turns off. The Steam starts to rise and a big green play button appers and I am teleported to Skyrim, because, I am, the Dragonborn! 200 hours played last three weeks, omg o_O
