Khas Advanced Lighting

Introduction
This is one of my graphics enhancement plugins for RPG Maker MV! It adds a lighting layer to your game, completely processed by your graphics card with GLSL shaders, so you will get great performance and awesome eye candy.

Current version highlights
Here's the final update for my lighting system! Now it has two versions, and the only difference between them is the addition of real-time shadows:
- Version 3.1 is the most lightweight lighting system for RPG Maker MV
- Version 4.0 Ultra has real-time shadows, but it is performance intensive

Attention
This plugin requires WebGL. There’s no way around this.
Old save files will not work correctly with this plugin.

Features
The most lightweight lighting engine for MV
Easy to use
Deferred lighting
Lights are created from images – you can create them in any shape you want
Two light blend modes: stock and custom
Effects are rendered using GLSL shaders
Comes with 23 lights. You can easily add more
Battle lighting
Real-time shadows

I've been using your plugins since RMVXA and I was kinda waiting for you to release something LIKE THIS on MV. Very very nice plugin, this and the fog one are just smooth and awesome! Keep up the good work and 'obrigado'!

Great plugin, the best lighting plugin by far, at least for me. The game runs really smooth.

Thanks Khas.

No worries, it can be tough with the different rules on different forums. If you don't hear from Khas on here within 72 hours from here, maybe make a support thread under Plug-in Support and see if someone else knows the answer?

I have a question Khas! I work with 'Mog Hunter Time System Plugin', (Day & Night), and I would like your plugin to work with it. But whenever I create an event (like a light torch) and it gets dark/night (Mog Time system) your light system don't show up. How could I do to sync the ambient light of your plugin to the Mog Time system? That'd be a very interesting mix of plugins. Thanks!

I already create a day and night system. But i use orange time. With this common events you can create all these stuff. Mabye you can switch your system, if it isnt to much work for you.

Hi, my overlay images still aren't affected by the lightning effects.

EDIT: And now they are. That's weird.

Thank you everyone!

I understand that you may expect fast answers, but sometimes I get busy with my university stuff and then I have to delay the support a bit.

@Underserial the MV version doesn't have shadows yet, so there's no need for [static] or [dynamic] commands.

@Josue Castillo I would need to make them compatible. It's on my todo list and I'll give it a try, but it's not my priority right now :)

@Tuomo L let me know if you find any weird behavior!

Hi Khas,

i use MOG - Event Sensor Plugin. This plugin uses comments. If I now want to add a light to the comment, then either the light or the event sensor, depending on what I first in the comment have.

Sorry for my bad english.

@Daalaff try placing all my plugins after MOG Event Sensor. My plugins add functionality to the original functions and they do not rewrite any of them. Thus, I believe the problem is being caused by MOG Event Sensor plugin.

Hi again, I'm having difficulty trying to get events to produce a light source. The help tab states:

"Please place this plugin after the "KhasCore" plugin. Additionally, please

copy the img/lights folder to your project. If you want to create more


lights, place the light images in that folder."
Unfortunately the plugin is never able to find custom made light images in that folder.

You need to edit the plugin file itself and add settings for your custom lights.
You can use the pre-set lights as a basis , copy/paste and then change them according to your needs.
After that you have to save the file and refresh the plugin in the plugin manager.

@Skurge try to do what @Gonor said, except that you don't need to refresh the plugin in the plugin manager :)

Succesfully finished a quest of saving my kitty who fell from a wall!

MrKiwi leveled up!
MrKiwi learned how to save his kitty!
Final sprint for me, although a long one. If everything goes well, I'll graduate by the end of the year. Then I'll have to take the Bar classes and exams (4 months), then I'm off to practicing law (as an intern for 6 months, paid of course, then I'll be a full fledged attorney).
I think there is something wrong with my cat. He is acting CATatonic.
Want to find a quick answer? Say the wrong one and SOMEONE will fall all over themselves to correct you.
Back after almost two years! O_O"
It's time to get back to my unfinished character sprite attempt AND JS/plugin making learning! :D
