# How fast are movement speeds?

#### EthanFox

Hopefully quite a simple one - for the different movement speed options for events, what is the speed in tiles-per-frame?

To put it another way, I'm in a situation where I need to know if I set an event to "Faster", and use "Move Right" 5 times, to know roughly how many frames it will take to reach the destination. For reasons I won't go into, I can't just use the "wait" option.

Is there a table which shows this data for all movement speeds? E.g.

"Normal" = 1 tile per 15 frames
"Faster" = 1 tile per 6 frames
etc.

I believe that the distance per frame can be calculated by the following :

Code:
``````(2ⁿ)/256
Where N is moveSpeed + D
Where D is either 1 or 0, depending on if the character is dashing or not dashing``````

Therefore ...

Code:
``````// No Dash
x8 Slower - 128 frames per tile
x4 Slower - 64 frames per tile
x2 Slower - 32 frames per tile
Normal (4) - 16 frames per tile
x2 Faster - 8 frames per tile
x4 Faster - 4 frames per tile

// Dash
x8 Slower - 64 frames per tile
x4 Slower - 32 frames per tile
x2 Slower - 16 frames per tile
Normal (4) - 8 frames per tile
x2 Faster - 4 frames per tile
x4 Faster - 2 frames per tile``````

Are you wanting for an event to wait until another event reaches a certain coordinate on the map, or ... ?

The equation for distance moved per frame is:

Code:
``Math.pow(2, this.realMoveSpeed()) / 256``

In normal terms this is 2^moveSpeed / 256. Where moveSpeed is equal to the number of the moveSpeed (eg "Normal" = 4) in the editor.

So normal works out at 2^4/256 = 0.0625 (I presume this is tiles/frame)

If my understanding is correct it would be safe to assume that frames per tile would be the inverse, ie 1/0.0625 = 16 frames/tile.

If you put the two together you'd get an equation something like this:

1/(2^moveSpeed / 256)

Which can be simplified to

2 ^ (8 - moveSpeed)
