Hello, I'm trying to create a map where there's a full moon in the parallax background, and on that same map, I use tint screen to set it to night...

The problem is, the tint screen also affects the moon, which is in parallax, that's to be expected. The question is, is there any way to make this moon in the background glow even with the night tint screen turned on?

Light plugins only work on the tileset, and in this case, this moon is in parallax. Is there any solution?

A few possible, but untested, solutions that come to mind:

  • Use a lighting plugin to tint the screen, instead of using the actual "tint screen" command. Then only the tiles will be tinted, so the parallax will be unaffected.
  • Instead of using the "tint screen" command, create a tinted overlay image, and display it using MZ Layer Graphics, or something similar. Then you can control which areas get tinted and which don't.
  • Edit your parallax image, and brighten the moon area enough so that it still looks bright even with the tint.
  • Cut out the picture of the moon and display it above everything else, using Foreground or MZ Layer Graphics or something.

I'll try to do it in the ways you suggested, thanks!

I think it's by time I make use of this feature in the forums. I'm never one to share profile updates or anything the sort, but hey, you gotta start somewhere! I think I'll use this place primarily to post maps actually, so here, have a goblin cave!

Does anyone know if Yanfly's Ace scripts are still free for use in both commercial and noncommercial projects? Can't find much except for the wordpress Terms of Use, but not sure if it's not outdated.
I just realized two of My series are beginning to look virtually identical to one another in mechanics and general themes, I never had this problem before.

This is Stifling! Must resolve this!

Juice FX is amazing... the portal in the middle is actually animated and moves thanks to Juice FX. so I edited part of a map I have and then drew the portal around it. threw it into Juice FX and now it's lively instead of static.
