Hello everyone it's Eric again, ready to roll and learn (Sorry admins if this is in the wrong thread AGAIN) anyway. I would like to know how to make a animated window where a shadow moves across it once, for spook purposes of course. See i'm trying to make my first horror game cause I really want to get into the genre and I always thought it was really cool to have those secret spooks that not everyone sees. so if you could help me out that would be really nice, I tried finding a tutorial about it but the one was for animating trees and it didn't really help me :<

Assuming I'm understanding correctly and you mean a window graphic, and not a message window effect:
The easiest way would be to create your window graphic as a character event and then set a move route on it, which has it "turn" to show the shadow move across the screen.
i.e. a graphic like this:

Then the move route would be turn left, wait 6, turn right, wait 6, turn up, wait 6, turn down, direction fix on.

Or something along those lines (look at the pre-built door event for another example)

*Edit: typed the turn order wrong

Is there any way this plugin works with the big character, and the QSprite plugin? Using RTP chars, everything works fine, but the big ones, with QSprite, it's like that in the image, it doesn't reflect right. And there is, in the settings, an option to fix it. Thanks.

So I just got my computer back (Was posting stuff on my phone) But now my dang monitor's broken! I'll need to get a new one, which means... JOBS! Yaaay... When I get a new monitor, I'll post picture of one of my RPGMMV projects.
Wish me luck... :kaodes:
Had to clean up disk space because Windows Updates was having my primaries' disk space for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I guess the clean up thingy doesn't work or something because there were 15gigs of old update files in it.
