I'm not sure why you have a black screen, sounds like something your game is doing. I'm having a little trouble understanding at the moment. But it sounds like you just want the event to have stepping on?

A regular charset has 4 rows for 8 sprites total. The first facing down, then left, then right, then up.
Stepping just moves the sprite will keep changing frames (the illusion of animation)

I'm not sure how you want to use this firefly event. Is it moving around? Is is standing still?

Edit: Maybe add $ to the front of the file name if the charset file isn't a regular sized one?

I used two simple firefly effects, in the "!Flame" stock character sheet, there is a firefly/will-o-wisp, if you scale it down it does well. I later added Khaz's awesome lighting script and I fooled around with it until I had "glowing flickering lightening bugs. I hope this helps. Still not sure on the black abyss...

Some character sheet have different dimension and scaling compared to the normal ones.
As @Journey_Sticks says, try to put "!" on the file name. (example : !Fireflies)
It'll scale accordingly.

Edit : I might interpret your question wrongly, but hope it can help

Here, I just cobbled these together. I made the firefly and used the provided image from !Flame, so any credits need only go to Kadakowa if you want to use or share it.

So I'm practicing ITC with a spirit box, and decide to try to contact my deceased soulmate. It actually gave me multiple identifiers. Me, still a bit skeptical, asked aloud "Fine but does he still love me?" and the box spoke and printed the word "Forever" at the same time. Been a mess of tears since. :kaocry:
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
Why is there so much month left at the end of money? D=
