Looking for the MV version?
There's an updated (and free for non-commercial projects) MV version here (click me!).
The Definitive Update!
The definitive update is available! The demo now includes more gameplay to cover the new features, I hope you guys like it
Khas Graphics Library updated to 2.0 | KGL was updated to add performance fixes and a fix for triggering anti virus software false positives. Now everything works fine.
Script commands now work with omitted time (instant) | For those who like to use Ultra Lighting script commands, now they work with omitted time. It's easier to use!
Fixed [lighting on/off] tag to sync with the switch | Fixes a bug which was causing problems with lighting controls.
Added F12 reset compatibility | Integrates the previous add-on functionality to the core script.
Added light level command | For creative users, now you can measure the light level by calling $game_map.shadows.light_level(x, y). This is a powerful tools for scripters!
Added comment tags to override offset | Now you can override a light's offset by using the commands [offset_x A] and [offset_y B], where A and B are integers in pixels (can be negative).
New add-on: Sticky Jump | This add-on fixes an issue some people have with jumping. It should be used with caution, but you'll know if you need it.
New add-on: Battle Lighting | Adds a lighting layer to battle scenes! It gives new life to your battles.
New add-on: Light/Shadow Detector | A new add-on for users with lots of creativity! You can add shadow and light detectors to a map, bringing puzzles to a new level.
Hiding characters in shadows or showing them in bright light, give your game a completely new look! Adjust lighting conditions to suit your game’s style, creating well-illuminated houses or spooky dark caves.
Created by Khas, the Ultra Lighting is an advanced lighting engine for RPG Maker VX Ace, which employs fast per-pixel operations to render lights and shadows, resulting in an immersive scene. The system is designed to be highly compatible with all kinds of scripts, turning it into an essential feature that can be present in all of your games. Who knows what the shadows can hide?

Comes with an user guide
Advanced light blending (realistic and beautiful colors)
Random opacity variation (useful for torches and broken lights)

Soft shadows (a.k.a. anti-aliased edges)
