So I have been searching but could not find a plugin to allow me to set both a left and a right face at the same time.
Does anybody know if this exists? I do have YEP Messagecore but whe I type the commands to show both the names it only shows one.


Like you see in the black circle I would like the same to be on the right side for the guy so name and picture.

Right now I've been trying to get this working by making a common event that shows pictures based on which switch is turned on. So I only have to throw a switch on and off instead of having to give a show picture command everytime for both persons speaking. But is that common event even usefull? Or should I just do show picture everytime?


So basically my questions are:
-Is there a plugin for 2 names left and right and/or faces left and right or should I keep trying it with base rpgmaker
-Can YEP messagecore display 2 nameboxes 1 left 1 right?
-Is my common event a good idea for displaying faces on both sides and switching between emotions?

Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help!

placing 2 faces might be possible, at least multiple busts that I saw before.
2 faces can be used with that plugin without an issue.

the other one, 2 name boxes, that is something that doesn't exist YET,
but combine the 2 in 1 plugin would be better.

another way I could think off if it is used alot of the same 2 peoples,
Galv_Messagebackground can be set a background and set the names
on them directly, with another plugin, with more busts (which faces can be used),
for them to show.

but that is the current way I see to impliment.

if you really want to use 2 name boxes and 2 faces at the same time,
than a plugin is required in the way you need it.

Thnx for the response!
I tried to find the double bust plugin but could only find the galv one that works for 1 side because it replaces the original faces which already could only go on one side.

For now I made the choice to just alternate sides with of original face location with a plugin to swap face(and name) location from left to right with a plugin command.
I think moving forward is more important since i've never finished anything and only just came back to rpg maker.

This is how I did it now. It's a lot of work but I don't know a better way.

I put the different face emotions in the show text command so it takes a lot of time to check all the emotions etc. But I guess it's better than standing still with my project.

this is [one] way but I seen people just using image and place it on
the screen. (to darken as well) like this plugin [here].
but I cannot help with the 2 name boxes though.

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
