This is a good tutorial! Someone actually commissioned me a while back for a map skill plugin that works similar to the key item processing command for stuff like this.

there exist one for MV, not perfectly smooth, but working, for MZ,
its easy way to do this way, if you have loads, a plugin might be better.

but it's a nice idea.

@ShadowDragon If someone wants to make a ton of skills with different effects, then yeah I agree that a plugin might be easier for them. But I think this method works if you want to have some neat tricks for a couple of skills, or if the available plugins conflict with others being used. :)

true too, but also for people that dont want to rely on plugins and event
everything or as much as possible.

while is a power thing to do, anything is possible, but I dont know if those
scriptcalls can be used in MV either. But keep doing those amazing tutorials.

I can learn alot from them as well, as well for twisting here and there to make
it more unique and a bit more complex.

but you need a basis for everything, and while there are many methodes as
well, you need to find the one that is working for you.

For beginners, it's a great start to go on, and I love those, specially if it can
be so easy to make while others mostly think to far out of the box.

I am a complete fool. I went through the trouble of making a clone sprite and setting up a system to have the characters flash, when it turns out - I never noticed that the "._mainSprite" was the actual bitmap being used. I'm happy since that makes compatibility easier, but I also want to scream.
Synchronizing bust and sprite expressions! Plus using a phone behaviour :kaopride:

Long gif tho, let it load first :kaoswt2:
Wondering how to force a Save State in VNMaker with a name and how to call it with a scene event in order to double check if this Save State exists or not. Phew... Leaving breadcrumbs for chapter DLCs to pickup would be more than half the fight in order to finish this visual novel :LZSsad:
Making games is the only thing I'm good at. Real talk.
So, uh... where's the RPG Maker MZ update with the MV animation system? Is there a release date confirmed?
Also I'm kind of brave enough to admit this. I... I have a crush on Sephiroth.
Please don't call me anything offensive. I'm naturally crazy.
