So I took one of the shelf assets, and turned it into an opening character sprite so that I can use it for interaction.
The problem is that whenever I use it in-game, the shelf is off-centered from the rest of the assets. Why is this? How do I fix this?
Here are the images/refs and asset dimensions:

$Opening_Shelf.png
"$Opening_Shelf" which is 144x384. (I made it these dimensions to fit the cell size of the shelf)

See how it looks off-centered? That's kind of a problem... I want to get it aligned correctly.

Add ! to the beginning of the file name. Character files are offset to allow them to stand at the edge of things. The ! prevents it being offset.

The manual that comes with the Rpg Maker has more explanations on the subject.

RPG Maker MV > Documentation > Asset Standards

Good luck

Let's continue making our game in MZ! Touchfuzzy is... still eventing... though this time we may be working on eventing some tutorial stuff for our players!

I work late on the game so I sleep in then I wake up late so I have to work hard to make up for sleeping in meaning I work late again and sleep in again... what a nasty cycle.
I just had my first real fire. Dad made burgers for lunch and the grill caught fire. He tried to get water but I told him you should never put water on a grease fire. So I got him the fire extinguisher under the sink and we managed to put it out. I can still smell a little of the smoke coming from the patio, but at least it's clearing. It sure was scary though.
