Hello!
I'm using a somewhat small resolution for my MV project (768*720, a NES resolution with 3 times enlarged pixels) and I'm having some trouble setting up the menus.
Overall it's starting to work ok, but I want to move some elements around :

Here the names of the characters don't properly align with the Face portraits, and the column to the right (with the Class name, HP, SP and RP) should be moved a bit to the left.

My main problem is with the Skill menu: the HP, SP and RP elements are pushed too much to the right and are cut.
If possible I'd like to push them a bit more to the left, and possibly make the command window less wide, to gain a bit of space.

I tried to look into the rpg_windows.js file to see if I could find what values to edit, but I have absolutely no idea where to look, could one of you help me find the values I need to tweak?
Thanks a lot in advance! :)


EDIT : I managed to fix the "Skill Window" problem by making a small concession on the game resolution (it's now 846*720, an adjusted NES resolution? but still with square pixels? eh whatever), but the alignment in the main menu window is still not ideal. It's really tolerable, but if a good soul still feels like helping me figuring out the rpg_windows.js file, I'd be super grateful.

You might try Yanfly’s Main Menu Manager. I believe it makes editing those elements easier.

Thanks, it doesn't seem to allow X and Y position offset of the indiviual elements (at least in a way I can understand?). It seems more designed to add submenus and options while keeping the basic structure? Frankly I'm not 100% sure.
Changing the game resolution seems to have solved most of my problems (including the Skill window one) though it's not exactly how I want it to look, but it's definitely good enough for the moment (and for a first project, I don't want to spend too much time on polishing things that don't matter that much in the end).

I may have been thinking of a different plugin. You might check out SRD’s plugins. I know he has a few menu plugins.

Yeah I saw the videos and they seem aaaawesome but it also looks like they are offline ? I didn't manage to download a single one, each time I got a message telling me the page is not loading.
Also I saw a bunch of people saying they didn't work anymore after one of MV's update (1.5 ? ). It's a shame because it looks like some very impressive pieces of external software.

Currently working on the second protagonist's story and her companion, making good progress. But I am looking forward to return to my other protagonist and continue his story and have him joined by a new companion. :)

Just 80% of my motivation on game making lmao, anyone got tips on how to not be unmotivated?
I've signed up for a job training program for people with Asperger's Syndrome. I went to a "test run" today so they could see how well I did with simple jobs, and I amazed them. Most new people do it in 30+ minutes, while I finished in a mere 15 minutes. Gives me time to work on a screenplay for Studio MDHR...
