Hi RPGMakerWeb!

I'm working on a game that utilizes a hub worldmap (a modern city) and I want to create a picture layer of shadows for buildings.

I've created the image using Photoshop and while the desired effect isn't quite there yet, I did run into a major problem.

When I create an event with the image to share, I can't get the image to center on the map, so none of the "shadows" created actually show up where they're supposed to. In fact, even assigning X and Y to 0 (which I would assume is the center) doesn't get it there either. I've tried dabbling with different numbers for both the X & Y, but can't seem to get it even remotely close to where it needs to be.

Am I going about this wrong?

The map (in RPG Maker 2003) is 100 x 100 (in tiles), and the image is 1600x1600px. I have the "Scroll Picture with Map" setting highlighted, as well as the transparent color. Right now, the picture is being triggered by a dummy NPC located toward the top left of the map.

Thank you!
