Here is my problem: I don't want the message window to touch the border of the window, I want a little bit higher, I am using YEP.MessageCore and the extensions but I can't find the line that determines the "y" of the message window to put a "-50" in there.
Someone knows where I can find it?

I think the part to the Y is here:
YEP_X_ExtMesPack1.js

Code:
Game_System.prototype.initMessagePosition = function() {
    this._msgWindowPositionX = 'auto';
    this._msgWindowPositionY = 'auto';
    if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultX.match(/center/i)) {
      this._msgWindowAnchorX = 0.5;
    } else if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultX.match(/right/i)) {
      this._msgWindowAnchorX = 1;
    } else {
      this._msgWindowAnchorX = 0;
    }
    if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultY.match(/center/i)) {
      this._msgWindowAnchorY = 0.5;
    } else if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultY.match(/bottom/i)) {
      this._msgWindowAnchorY = 1;
    } else {
      this._msgWindowAnchorY = 0;
    }
};

Those two lines will determine the x and y coordinates by DEFAULT.

(This is for the bottom parameter set in the plugin parameters)
if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultY.match(/center/i)) {
this._msgWindowAnchorY = 0.5;
} else if (Yanfly.Param.EMP1DefaultY.match(/bottom/i)) {
this._msgWindowAnchorY = 1;
} else {
this._msgWindowAnchorY = 0;
}
};

OR HERE

this._msgWindowPositionX = 'auto';
this._msgWindowPositionY = 'auto';



If you want to change just in some cases., maybe you can use the plugin command:

MessagePositionY 400

Change the number to the position you want.

Or inside the message window:
\msgposy[x]

I do not test it myself. So you have to test it to confirm.

I did change but it takes no effect in the default messages.

Strange. I will try when I get home.
Do you try all the options?
Do you use any other msg plugin?

[[EDIT]]

I think maybe you are using another plugin that use the message window.
Because it worked here perfectly, without any need to alter the code.
use the Plugin Command in the beggining of your game:
like in the picture below.

Is it interesting to get more backstory on villains? A key moment in their past, their childhood, or maybe something that shows they've always been that way? To see or not to see?
