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

Time to add the support for import/export default RMXP maps. Maybe there will be customized tileset support later. In theory, I can reimplement the entire RMXP inside this RMXP-made game to make more RMXP games. :kaojoy:RMXPFORMATSUPPORT.jpg
Gonna make a story driven game someday in RPG Maker about this diseased character in my head. Will keep you posted, although I was warned by the authorities that posting too much would be considered 'spamming' so I WON'T SPAM. It'll be before I go in anyways. It's gonna be messed up but it won't be explicitly pornographic so don't worry, I'll give all the content warnings. :barf::barf::barf:
If you're a RM plugin developer, and you're reading this...

Thank you. You're awesome. Even if I haven't used your plugin, your work is appreciated.
