Hey there, I'm working with custom fixed images for parallax background for my maps.

I'm wondering if there's a way to make the character(s) be smaller or bigger on the screen depending on the perspective of the X axis. So that when they are far away they are slightly smaller than on the front, otherwise the perspective looks a bit ****ed.

The only thing that comes to mind is dividing the maps in regions depending on the axis height and maybe launch and a change player sprite event each time the player walks over?

there are plugins (or at least were for MV, don't know if they are compatible to MZ or someone made MZ ones) that create a pseudo-3D-view based on the maps.
the most commonly used are called "mode 7" plugins, but I think that the full mode 7 is more than what you want.

still you might find something usable if you search for that term in the plugins.

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
