I want to zoom in on the game I am making. So I want to zoom in a little bit more on the character verses having it as it is now were you can see the whole map in view. To get in idea of what I mean, I will attach a screenshot down below or you can watch the horror RPG Pocket Mirror. Yes, this game is also made using RMVX Ace.Also if you know how to do this with others but not this, I can try with that maker. Also if there is a video tutorial of this process for RMVX Ace that helps a lot! Thank you for all the tips! image.pngimages.jpeg

'Tutorials' is where people who have made/written a tutorial they want to share with others can post them. "How do I...?" (implementation) questions go in the appropriate Support forum for the engine you are using.

Zeus81's map effects can accomplish a "zoom effect"; it's not perfect but it gets the job done.

Then use this in a script call when you enter a map.
map_effects.set_zoom(zoom, duration, center_on_player)

This quick config will zoom in 100% more.
map_effects.set_zoom(200, 0, true)

Are you talking about the circle of light around the player? That can be achieved using a dark image "show picture" event command with a bit of transparency in the middle being shown in-game. It's not really a zoom effect at all. Not even sure if Pocket Mirror ever used zoom-in effects.
You can also use scripts to achieve this effect. https://galvs-scripts.com/2013/05/30/visibility-range/

For actual zooming in on pixels, download the Zeus81 script and follow the instructions Noct gave .

OK YOU SAVED ME!
i was looking for new zooming script just beause i was writing

map_effects.set_zoom(120,60)
map_effects.refresh_rate = 60

And it lag my game from 60 to 9 fps...
So yeah people if you reading this, when and if you are using script call Zeus81's map effects, zoom effect, just write this and nothing else.
map_effects.set_zoom(200, 0, true)

Artists out there, is there something RPG maker related you wish your graphics software had but doesn't? (Something like automatically transform a wall tile into a cylindrical tower). I want to give a boost to WecTools, but I'm dry of ideas right now...
having anxiety during all this virus stuff is the absolute worst. I'm the only one missing out on my friend's wedding in Sept. because I can't be in large groups of people anymore due to anxiety.
Well... I just spent most of the day making something I cant even use xD

The idea was to look at the original but at a medium distance.
In hindsight, I might as well have just edited the original lol... I didn't intend for it to end up so similar.
does anyone else feel tired after completing a sprite?
