Anyone know how to orient the screen to an isometric viewpoint? I've seen something similar done during battles, but I'm curious if it's possible to do outside of combat.

It is possible. But your best bet is to make parallax maps in photo shop and use Yanfly's region plugin.

This is a test I made about a week back. It worked perfectly with Yanfly's region plugin.

I'm not sure about changing the actual screen but you can "fake" isometric view by using orthogonal graphics that are made to look isometric.

Basically you make an isometric tile using orthogonal tiles. Each tile represents a corner of the isometric cube.

My game uses an isometric view for most maps, i use parallax mapping combined with most plugins from: https://quxios.github.io/#/plugin
Specifically, the essential plugins you need are Qmove and Qmovement. For pixel movement and the use of colliders respectively

Did some animated message faces. But why not animate menu faces too?

Confession: I don't know how to make a custom intro screen. I've tried a plugin, but I want...something more. Something dynamic!

Looking forward to messing around with MZ when it comes out in little over a week. Anyone else amped? What's the first thing you're gonna look at/try to do?
by now, I think most people know that I hate misanthropic bad guys, but I realize one more reason I hate them so much is because the motive is easy and takes no thought to come up with. It's actually more challenging to create a villain that doesn't have that motive.
