Hi:

I'm wondering whether anyone has something similar to these?

1)
A blinking sprite that tells players where to perform certain actions.

2)
A growing/shrinking circle that contains other icons in the middle.

BTW, how was 2) done?
I thought we can't stack events on top of each other?

I can't seem to figure out how this was done.

Thank you for your help. :)

the easiest way is to make a different circle sprite for each different object inside

The EDITOR can't place two events over each other.
you can place them at different positions in the editor, and then have one event move over another ingame. However that usually requires a lot of extra event handling, so it is rarely done that way - the solution with different sprites is much easier.

Thank you, Andar.
I have read many of your posts during my research. They are super helpful! :)

thought I'd upgrade to mz from mv cause of the nice quality of life features but ****ing hell why couldn't they allow old plugins to work in it and secondly how come in over a year since it's release has there been no mz version of something so crucial as a non grid based movement plugin. I guess I'll stick with mv. (why wasnt mz just an update to mv anyway literally nothing substantial changed..)
Something might be coming...

A new day for creating :)
2021 has been the runner-up for the worst year of my life. 2015 may take that title, but '21 is pushing it. Excuses really don't justify how much of a jerk I've been this year to a lot of people.

I'm sorry. I don't intend to be a jerk forever, but I'd rather back up my intent with actions, not words.
