Just trying to find out how to animate enemies. And I don't mean making full on animations for attacks or something. I'm just looking for how to do something like they did in OMORI, where the enemies are just always slightly moving. I tried using the SVAnimatedEnemies plugin, but that only seems to work with sprite sheets, which I feel like wouldn't really work for bigger images, and I don't want to just scale up a pixelated image by like 600%

Do you mean Yanfly's Animated Sideview Enemies? If so, why do you think that? It's not specified in the documentation, and the tutorial video shows the breathing effect applied to regular enemy battlers.

If you meant something else...you should check out Yanfly's Animated Sideview Enemies, it does exactly what you're asking :stickytongue:

I'm not sure, but you could try a plugin Dragon Bones animation

Edit: As @ATT_Turan said, you can scale up/down default MV spritesheets.

I don't think I said that...MV doesn't use spritesheets for enemies, just individual images. :stickytongue:

But since the OP explicitly said they don't want full animations, I suggested Yanfly's plugin with the breathing option to always have a bit of motion going on.

yanflys animated enemies, all of the notetags listed under "general" apply to all enemy sprites.
its almost all the notetags after that which are for enemy actors

Perhaps I misunderstood something. I'm totally exhausted, I don't know why I sit here, instead of laying in bed and watching Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid.

Haven't been on here actively in awhile, project is going strong my biggest issue is the STORY, i'm refining the plot and learning so much i decided to take a writers class to improve even more but the programming and functionality of the game is stepping up nicely!
Hi everyone! Here's what I'm working on today! It's one of the dorms on campus. I know I said I wouldn't use assets but I reused a few things from the cafeteria hehe.

I added a little squish effect when characters change direction to try and make things a bit more lively. Though it's a bit hard to see on the fast moving guys.
