Hello, I would like to have a flashlight effect for my game but I'm not quite sure how to do that any ideas?
None of these worked.You can either do that with an event or a plugin.
With an event it's tricky, you will need a picture, variables and a common event if you want to use it often.
That is for Ace, but I believe it can be used in MV, as long you have the proper resolution on the picture
Khas Ultra Lightingh plugin:
With Terrax Lightning Plugin
Hope this helps somehow ^^
Looking for a flashlight that actually lights up where your're pointing it at and aims in the direction you are a facing. I think you could do that in one of the tutorials you sent me but i followed everything and no success.Really? Oh I use the script Khas made for Ace to create my flashlight, and for all I know, it's possible to do the same with the MV plugin...
Can you explain with a little bit more detail what you are looking for? If you can show references, even better.
Maybe that way more people can help if I can't ^^
I already had the plugins installed but I forgot to mention I don't want a battery system, do you know how to do that?You can do that in all the plugins I showed, but you can't just follow the tutorial, you need to download the plugin, use it and then follow the tutorial.
With images doing it like you want is also possible, but I advice a plugin here for easier management.
Thank you for your help but none of this is working, I tried following the help files too and when i try to open the TerraxLighting demo I get an error that says undefined is not a function.I know how to do it in Ace, with Khas script, but in MV I can only point you to tutorials.
Since I don't know which plugin you're using, I'm going to show you two tutorials.
Let's see... If you are using Terrax Lighting system, I am sure you have the demo as well and if not and you want to use this one, download the the plugin again and the demo comes along. In the demo there is an item flashlight and you can use it to understand how to create your own. But basically what you need to do (this is taken from the demo) is to create an item that will call a common event and two switches (one to turn on and other to turn off). That common event is the one that will create the flashlight.
Then give your character the flashlight and use it.
For KHAS Ultra Lightning I found this, which will probably explain a lot better than me.
Hope this helps!
Edit: Also, always read the help files when using a plugin, because most of the time these are really helpful ^^
