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

Feeling cute, might make an essay on the presence of Malaise in the gaming industry. idk
Just went to Metrocon here in Tampa Florida. My first anime convention. They had an anime chess battle and some funny impromtu comedy. The comedy was my favorite part. How is everyone?
I'm thinking about opening a "game in development" thread, though i'm not entirely sure yet. It's still really early in development, and most i have to show are assets or really chaotic map WIPs. There is a lot of story +the world itself though, and i struggle with converting all of my notes into readable text, and a thread might help...?
I see a button in a game, I press it. Cannot resist the temptation even if I know it's a trap.
