If you have ever played any of the games in the Mother series you know how surreal and trippy the battle backgrounds look.

They look like that
Skip to about 0.50 to see the battle background.

If you notice the background waves and moves. It also has a tad bit
of animation.

I have tried multiple scripts but if I ever try to mix the two
I get an error message.

Also is there a program I could use to make custom battle backgrounds like those seen in this series?
I'am using paint and this is what I got.
I got it to move but nothing else.

Also is there a checkered grid template for vx ace battle backgrounds?

Battleback Ex is a script that can do something close to that. You can have as many battleback layers as you want and apply movement to each one. There's also a wave distortion effect you can use. You can probably get close to some Earthbound effects if you mix the wave effect with an animation

For ideas about which graphics program to use, have a look through the forum "Useful Tools for Development" which has several threads discussing this.

What scripts? What message? We can't help you if you only give us hints.

Yay! Got 3 new frying pans, its weird, but I'm so happy about it.
Yelp. I've discovered that I am one of those people who should not be drinking coffee. Took me a week detoxing off of coffee and switching to tea to realize how badly it was affecting me- and I've been drinking the stuff for years. Yikes!
I bought a gaiter with Meijer printed on it.

I'm still a Walmart worker, and I wore it today for work.
Trying out new carpet autotiles and I can't decide if it's working or not. Pixeling soft carpets is hard
It seems like this is going to be another remote semester. RIP.
