What version of MV are you using? ( click Help > About )
Try F8 as well. Maybe F12 doesn't work in old versions.

As a heads up, the mods might get upset at you if you double post like that. You should edit your posts instead.

Anyway, the problem is I'm using some newer javascript features that aren't supported in 1.5. You'll need to update to 1.6 for the plugin to work.

I should probably add babel to my build process so I can support 1.5. Until then you'll just need to update.

@The_switchify do you use steam? if so it should update automatically unless you didn't let it on the settings.
if you bought on the site you'll have to download the new version.

And yeah, most new plugins are for version 1.6 forward. some work on older versions still but were not tested, but others don't. Many plugins will have a warning telling you about that, that they were only tested on version x forward.

Alright how do I make an event sprite like a chair to always facing south, but still being a sprite?

Edit: To clearify I dont want it to always face camera but stay in position, kinda like fence, but for sprite.

To prevent a sprite from changing when you rotate the camera, it either needs to be on an object character sheet ( starting with ! ), or have <mv3d: dirfix(true)> in the note tag.

@The_switchify
you should be able to download the latest version from where you originally downloaded the program. I assume this website.

Using the notetag is not working correctly <mv3d: dirfix(true)> in notetag of the sprite.

It still rotates towards the camera

Maybe missing a variable?

dirfix(true) Makes it so the sprite image doesn't change when the camera rotates.
To make it so the sprite mesh doesn't rotate, you need to change the event's shape. <mv3d:shape(fence)>
Shape options are flat, fence, sprite, tree, and cross.
Flat will lay flat on the ground.
Fence will stand up and ignore camera rotation.
Tree will stand up and rotate horizontally with camera.
Sprite will rotate both vertically and horizontally to face camera
Cross will use a cross mesh, like the chair by the table.

yep I read all of that before aswell. Fence and trees are doing somewhat ok, so is cross. But this is not really good on objects

I show here

Why is events and sprites making this look weird? This is probably fine on trees and flowrers but not generally objects.

That's the cross shape, working exactly as intended. It's two planes at 90 degrees from each other.
I'm not really sure what look you're going for. Personally I would use the tree shape for this sort of thing.

Well I want the object to face south, dont rotate with camera and stand up. This is normally fence, but fence lacks the depth on the object and just shows front and back. So when camera is rotating it will just be perfect? or do I need to think like the bookcase, or drawer and make event + tile?

Im probably missing something simple here.

There's not really an easy solution here. 2D images inherently lack depth.
What I would do is break the stool into 2 textures, one with the top of the stool and one with the legs. Then use 2 events. The event with the legs will use the cross shape, and the top of the stool will use the flat shape with z() or height() to lift it off the ground.

In the future I plan on adding the ability to import 3D models, but this will also require the knowledge to create the model.

@seaotter yeah, that's not how you do it.
if you look into the demo you can see it better, maps for this plugin are made different than normal maps. Tiles that go over each other need to be put ont over the other on the same tile, not on two tiles like you did. Walls can't be set like this, you'll have to put just the ceiling (well kinda, some notetag use can let you use wall instead of ceiling but you won't put two tiles for the wall like you did there anyway). For tiles to "pop out" you'll need to either set a terrain tag in the tileset or use an event with the proper notetags.
it is a lot of small differences you'll only learn to use properly by checking the demo and experimenting to see the results.

So I'm resuming work on the Shadowstar Trilogy. I've decided that it will take place between the end of G4 and the start of G5, and two of the Lost Rulers will be Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer (who is the moon princess in my AU).
Been working on some sprites, My favorite out of all of them is this guy, his name is Moss:
anyone else 'round here gonna be doing the retro game jam that's starting in a few days on itch.io?
I also wanted to say that my bro brought back nostalgia and got me a GBA SP for my birthday! Ah, the memories of Pokémon Sapphire and LeafGreen! It came in a gray shell but he ordered a red one so it'd look like the one I had as a kid. It looks brand new!
