Well, this script isn't mine... I just took it and did some few tweeks so it could be more easily customized...

What does it do? Let you change the pause graphic of the message window for an external graphic and change its position.
The original thread where this script was made is this one: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/message-window-pause-sign-repositioning.19853/

Yato(Racheal) was the one that made it in... 2013 (and yet, there are no other script that do what this script does). It is a very awesome script. The only thing I did in it was that now you can set a non windowskin graphic with the animation. It still uses a 4 frames animation, but you can make it in any size or form.

There is 16x16 cell sized template (32x32):

But you can make it any size...

(24x24 cell sized template - 48x48 total)

And, finally, the script:

Thanks @mlogan . Did my best to make the credits information as clear as I could. And I changed the script header too.

I just saw one of SigmaSuccor's RPG Maker news videos, it mentioned one of my plugins. Now I kind of wish I'd made a demo project for it, having nothing in that segment but a scroll down the code feels a little underwhelming given what the plugin COULD do. Except I suck at making demo stuff, and my testing project isn't fit for that. :(
Ok, to prepare for the GMTK Game Jam, I'm trying to make a game with the theme "The Cat's out of the Bag" in about 48 hours. I'd make a forum post with a question, but I don't have the time!
Worked over a week on a new BGM, and I'm finally happy with it.

Here are some screenshots of the area it will be used in
