    Greetings Creators!


    For those who may not know me, I'm a HUD graphic artist who has a specific interest in graphics


    for battles. So today I thought I might get started and finally bring my own potluck of special resources for you


    all to enjoy :3.


    I intend to bring you 3 different forms of graphics to enhance your visual appeal in your games:


    Boss Bars, Enemy Bars and Command and Window HUDS.


    I realize that there are many different forms of Boss bar and enemy bar plugins (Via Jeremy Cannady and MogHunter); so I will ensure to make all of my graphics compatible upon request :p


    June 29th 2019: Added the Darkness Boss Bar






    ====================================================================================================================================================


    BOSS BARS


    I hope you won't mind if I get straight to the point. When I play video games, one of my favourite parts of any game is the boss battle. They test the players knowledge and skill up to that point of the game.


    Within this spoiler tag lies the essential template for what one of my boss-bars looks like if it is a Multi-layered Boss. I also do the portraits of any enemy upon request, just message me first (To avoid cluttered requests down in the replies)

    [​IMG]


    -If you happen to not be a fan of that weird, psychedelic approach to your bar, fear not. I merely did that as a test with scrolling graphics.


    -As for the portrait, its a little more complicated. The Portrait goes into the pictures folder and has to be put in manually by the user in a troop event before the first turn begins.



    Now lets get into the actual resources. For now, I'll post some that are only compatible with Moghunters Boss Bar Script until I master the resolution for Jeremy's.


    TEMPLATE :

    Basic Green Boss Bar (Spans the Screen|Compatible with Moghunter's Boss HP Meter Plugin):


    Base of the bar:

    Actual depleting Bar:

    Depleting animation:

    After the depletion animation:

    Wanna see it more in depth? Say no more!






    Redial Bar


    This bar is a little more special as it possesses a little more design along with it.

    Example of usage:


    [​IMG]


    Sideview actors: http://p3x774.web.fc2.com/



    PREMIUM PLATED:


    While it may look simple, this will make for a very sophisticated appeal to a specific boss (IE an assassin, CEO or etc..). I hope you enjoy this resource as much as I enjoyed making it :D

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Example of use:


    [​IMG]





    Techno Wave Boss Bar:


    This boss bar in particular was a nightmare and a half to make. UNlike the others, it does not have a decrease animation but gains points for looking awesome. :p


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Example of Use:


    [​IMG]



    The Wuv Me Bar:


    Sorry to report that there will be no preview for this one. Its the same process as the other bars, just have to be precise with your coordinates :D


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]





    DEMIOS BOSS BAR:


    A special resource for use with Justice's Demios Animated Battler. Included with this boss bar are the base, the bar, damage numbers and a special portrait of Demios for the bar itself. I would like to thank you all for popping by to visit me here for the brief time I visited.

    You can find Demios here: http://www.akashics.moe/

    Ancient Stone Golem:
    This is another thematic bar, based off of any stone-based enemy archetype. This one isn't overly impressive, it's just me trying to get back into the swing of things.

    Stone Golem in the video created by AEkashics: http://www.akashics.moe/librarium-animated/librarium-animated-runic-stone-golem-goliath/
    There will be a demonstrative video coming soon of this bar in action :)

    DARKNESS BAR
    For those of you who want to take a walk on the Dark Side, I whipped this up just to tickle your fancy. Wait that doesn't sound-

    Enjoy!~

    You're going to need this plugin:  https://atelierrgss.wordpress.com/rmv-boss-hp-meter/


    Once installed into your Plugins Manager, grab the 2 layout images provided and place them in your \img\sytem  folder.


    Make sure the base of the bar (The back), is named: Boss_HP_A


    and the actual bar itself is named Boss_HP_B


    Next, you're going to enter the plugin manager and open up the configuration for the Plugin.


    Set the coordinates for the x and y position of the meter and layout until you have them both in the desired location.


    In order to make the Boss Bars appear, you have to do into your database, go into enemies and give them the notetag of 'Boss HP' (Without quotations).


    Now when you're in battle, the Boss bar should appear in the desired location.


    Have fun :D

    *Updated the thread with the final resource. I had fun making them, but I suddenly feel like the need for these kinds of things have diminished. So thank you everyone, for the chance to make something worth while. Even if it was short, I still felt like I served some purpose. 


    *ADDED SPECIAL DEMIOS BOSS BAR.

    @ThomasTheKorn These are not optimized for VX Ace and are optimized for plugins on that engine, however you can try Moghunters old boss bar scripts and play around with the images for a while and see if changing their sizes works

    @Thomas Smith All images are still there on my screen, may be an error with your browser.
