I don't know exactly how to word this, so please forgive my accursed descriptive skills.
I've got the general gist of how to lock the player to only move left or right, but I'm at a loss how to implement a way for the Background and Foreground to scroll in the same manner as the Middle Ground, but the Background scrolls slower whereas the Foreground scrolls faster.
I really don't know how else to describe it, so I've included a quick sketch of what I've got in mind. The three layers would overlap one another to the viewer, but as the player moves each layer scrolls at a different pace to give the impression of depth as opposed to a single static image.

My question is, how would you implement this sort of mechanic in RPGM MV? I'm a RPGMaker illiterate when it comes to these sort of things.

Any help is greatly appreciated! I'll gladly sacrifice a fish as an offering to the Eldritch deity of your choice!
-Cheers!

I've moved this thread to Plugin Requests. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.



By default you can only have one parallax image per map, and it can only scroll in one direction and at a set speed. So you will need a plugin to allow multiple parallaxes, and to let them scroll in different directions and at different speeds.

Ach! My apologies, wasn't entirely where to properly post the thread.
Parallax! That's the word I couldn't remember. It's unfortunate the default doesn't allow more than one, but nothing that can't be fixed. You have my thanks for clearing that up. :)

Mogg's sample project has an example of doing what you want using his weather plugin.
Oh, that's a great find! Many thanks for the tip IV. :D

That moment when you try to figure out a color scheme for an alien ship so that it's something other than "Grey on Grey".
It's up for viewing! See what happened when EquestriAlert got tested in 1997... or was it a test? Did somepony hack the system? Or did somepony push the wrong switch? Even Adagio Dazzle (the owner of the channel) has no clue.

Can you put the pieces together? Don't worry, the game isn't over yet! There's more pieces to add on!
Why parodies are always underrated on your opinion?
