TDDP_MovePictureEx 1.0.0

Introduction
This plugin allows you to use variables and relative values with all the properties of Move Picture events (not only X and Y) via an intuitive and simple Plugin Command structure. Very useful for mini-games and picture-based menu systems.

Features
  • Very useful for event based menus and minigames using pictures. In addition to x and y, you can also use variables for duration, width, height, blend mode and even picture ID.
  • Easy Plugin Command structure where properties can be in any order, and omitted properties are given their current values as defaults.
  • Supports relative values "+" and "-", modifying the existing value by the amount given
  • Supports variables for values, even for the picture's ID. This enables complete dynamic handling of Move Picture events.
  • Integrates and works with TDDP_AnimationCurves. You can use its Plugin Command like you would with MV's built-in Move Picture event command, or use the property "curve:<CurveFunction>" to set them both in one!
  • Does not overwrite or change MV's internal Move Picture functionality; this is just another interface to it. Therefore compatibility should be as high as possible.

Screenshots
More and better visual examples of how this can be used coming soon, as I'm using this actively in my own game.



How to use
Use the following Plugin Command structure:

Code:
MovePicture <id> <property:value>
For example, to move a picture's X position without altering its other properties, simply write:

Code:
MovePicture 1 x:500 duration:45 wait
Variables
You can use variables as property values. For example:

Code:
MovePicture 1 x:v1 y:v2 duration:v3
This would use variable 1 for x, variable 2 for y, and variable 3 for duration.

Variables can be used for all properties, even the picture id:

Code:
MovePicture v1 opacity:v2 duration:60
Relative values
If you want to set a property relative to its current value, you can do that too. For example:

Code:
MovePicture 1 x:+100 y:-50 width:+25
Both "+" and "-" are supported.

You may have noticed "duration" was omitted here. It falls back to MV's default of 60 when omitted.

See the Help section of the plugin for more information.

Important: Plugin has been updated to 1.0.1, fixing a bug that could cause crashes when used with some of my other plugins, due to an unscoped variable. Please redownload if you are able.

Guess I'll rework all the existing screens in my game. Except of the save/battle screen. For this I will be lazy and use Yanfly. With my current pace it'll take a few months.
