Message Busts - Version 2.7
RPG Maker MV Plugin
A port of my Ace version to work a similar way to show busts.
Display a bust image instead of the face chosen in the "Show Text" event command.
Settings allow you to choose the bust location:
- appear above message box or bottom of screen
- appear in front or behind message box
- text indent size for busts appearing in front of window
Plugin call allows to change bust display to:
- appear on left or right
- appear mirrored
- disable busts and show faces as normal
- escape code to change bust mid message
- 'member' face set, to show face/bust of member 1-8 in the party.
- 'leader' face set, to show a certain position in the leader's faceset (useful for emotions in the leader's talking no matter who the leader is).
- The above works for faces in messages as well as busts as they are based off of the faces.
How to Use
- Copy the "GALV_MessageBusts.js" file into your project's /js/plugins/ folder.
- Activate plugin using the 'Plugin Manager'
- Put busts into your /img/pictures/ folder and name them accordingly (refer to help file and demo)
- Read the 'HELP' documentation (also found in plugin manager) for more details and try the demo if you don't understand.
