Hello. I am new, so forgive my ignorance but I don't understand how to use parallax mapping. I was encouraged to install Galv's Layer Plugin, and I have done so, and followed the help notes up to a point where I am lost.

I created a layers folder as instructed and put my test BG .png inside.

I was very lost looking for the - Plugin commands - in the UI but I finally found it. Although now that I have located it... I am not sure what to do with it.

I had no idea how to access the plugin commands before this, because I had never seen the event interface. In my mind, making the terrain is really fundamental and the first step, and events are more specific and secondary, but I guess we need to "trick" MV to force it not to use tiles, because it REALLY wants you to build your map with tiles.

I downloaded Galv's Example Project and I am currently trying to reverse engineer it, or replicate it so I can understand what it happening. He is using a term:

"Plugin Call"

I really don't understand what this means. Obviously it means "call the plugin" but... how? from where? Attached to what? I know what a map's note area is, but I don't understand the sequence of events Galv needs me to input to make a .png my BG layer and ignore all of MV's map functions.

I get the impression that there is some kind of fundamental understanding that I do not have, are there any suggestions what specifically I need to learn for this parallax process to make sense?

Thank you!

The plugin call I refer to is to use the 'Plugin Command' event command (on the third tab of the event commands on the bottom right).

https://itch.io/jam/scream-jam-2020/rate/797725 Hey guys come play /rate my jam rpg maker horror game!!!!
I worked a lot more today and I am thinking about Youtube videos to make to my channel, but I am still looking for some content :D

But I am happy to be back at work :D
Update... no scam calls all day. I think they learned their lesson. And I'm working on a fake anti-piracy video, featuring a fan game I'm making in MV. If I had the permission to make the game a licensed game that I could sell (rather than having it totally free like fan games are required to be), I'd use a really cool anti-piracy screen...
