I just recently bought DLC that contains monster images and moved them into my enemies folder but they aren't appearing. I've noticed this happening with other monster DLC packs that I've bought in the past too. Some of the images are registering but I'm not getting the rest of them. I'm certain that these images are formatted for RPG Maker MV but they are not showing up. Is this some kind of glitch? Because I'm almost afraid to purchase more monster DLC packs if this is a regular thing and I need to be able to use all my DLC content instead of only some of it.

Have you restarted the engine since adding the DLC?

Is it possible some of them are in the 'enemies' folder, and others are sideview so in 'sv_enemies'?

I've restarted multiple times and the images that I added still aren't showing. The files that I added are PNG format too..... Should I start adding them to the sv_enemies folder instead?

This depends on whether you're using sideview battlers. In Database -> System, have you checked this box? :

sideview.png

If so, you'll want to add the battlers to the sv_enemies folder. If not, they can just be in the enemies folder.

There are two folders for enemy battlers. Your images need to go into the enemies folder if you're using front view battles, and into the sv_enemies folder if you're using side view battles. If you are using both, then the images need to go into both. Even though there's no difference unless you're using a plugin that expects enemy battlers to be set up in the same format as actor battlers.

I was able to put the images into the sv_enemies folder and they all have showed up! I never knew that they needed to be in there from the beginning! I guess awhile back I might have stashed some enemies in there but didn't realize I needed to be using that folder. I primarily was only putting the images in the enemy folder.

The idea is (theoretically) that the poses would be different - front view enemies facing out of the screen at you, versus looking across the battleground at a side view party.

I don't know what DLC you got, but I'm pretty sure everything I've picked up has the images organized into those folders already, even if the images aren't different.

Surprising nobody, it turns out "next Friday" for the next Jump into Javascript has become "possibly Sunday if you're lucky" XD
Folks, if anyone sends you a message inviting you to add their API to your game, please report them. We don't want people spamming our members asking them to add stuff to their games for their own (or others') benefit. We've updated the forum rules to confirm this.
I'm listening to iiluminaughtii talking about the secrets behind shady businesses and scams. Meanwhile I'm writing a fanfic about Sephiroth from FF7, one specifically for my stepmom. I'll get to give it to her, too, because my boss said I could take the holidays off! Dec. 22-27 I will be in Orlando, and maybe Fort Myers too, visiting my dad and stepmom!
Of course, I bought a handful of games on the Steam Black Friday sale. Will I try them? Will I complete any? Who knows...
I don't really have any neat updates today about how I screwed up programming... But if you want to observe the intensenes of me programming, then you can check out my stream :)
