It's different for each piece that you want to change but you're going to look for something that says img/whateverlayer/
As it's been a while since I posted that fix (and I'm not actively using this plugin) I can't remember if you can get by with just removing the last / or the whole point of img/ and that last /.



You'll need to find the others like that if you're going to change those like I did.
They'll be img/pars/, img/shadows, etc.

And again, use this at your own risk.
It´s working thank you!

I found a bug in this plugin when you open the menu and then close it, extra fog layers will show above everything else (including pictures) ignoring the Z value given initially? Is it just me?

Hello!
I was wondering if there was a way to control the fade out speed of the parallax when toggling it off by it's switch?
There seems to be an Overlay Fadeout plugin command for the fog, but not the parallax

Hey, this plugin was working great but now all of a sudden the par layer of the map is not displaying. Its still required as I can't load the map without "par1" but its not actually displaying in game. Can anyone help?
edit: all other layers seem to display just fine.

Hello,
I am trying to do an animated parallax and i somehow managed to work through some errors. Now the only problem is, that the animation does not begin until after a few seconds of being on the map. Is there any way I can fix this?

I hope someone still deals with troubleshooting, because I really would like to make this work.

Thanks in advance! :)

I'm an idiot. My issue was caused by having switches tied to the OrangeOverlay default slots of 3 and 4.

what plugin command specifically puts an overlay in the background?
all i know is "Overlay fog par3_0 255 0 0 0 0" places an image in front of the character.
"Overlay ground par3_0 255 0 0 0 0" does nothing, "Overlay par par3_0 255 0 0 0 0" does nothing.

edit - "Overlay ground ground3_0" doesn't do anything either, even though a near identical command was shown in a screenshot earlier on in this thread??
edit 2 - apparently the thing i was trying to do is already possible with "Change Parallax" so nevermind!

First, I think it's something to do with the YEP_Core engine plugin the not compatible with Tsukitsune_animatedOverlayAddon.js.

Now, I'm not export with this plugin specific, but do the following will help to check the problem:

1. Sometimes it's all about where you put them on the list, try to play around with these two plugins...
- both on top of all other plugins (in your list)
- both under all other plugins
- In the two options above, try to put the 'orange' plugin above the 'Tsukitsune' one and then the other way.

If the above method didn't help, try the following:

2.
Turn all other plugins you have to 'off' and see if it's working now. If it's working, that's mean one of your other plugins in the list the are not compatible with these two plugins.

To check which one it's you can do the following:
1. Open a 'test game' + Open the control and take a clear screenshot (click F8 or F12), that's should show which plugins may or may not cause the problem.

2. If there are too many plugins show up you will have to turn them all to 'off' and check one by one (turn 'on' one plugin and playtest it).

Is it possible to use this plugin with RPG maker MZ? I can get the animations to play using the map note tag but can't figure out how to start and stop them using the plugin commands because the plugin itself doesn't show up as a choice. I tried typing the plugin command as "Script : Plugin Command : animate_layer ground12 14 5" but it doesn't work. Thanks :)

Hey! Sorry if this has already been fixed or whatever :D
I'm noticing on a map of mine that has scrolling, the front par layer sort of jitters when moving, making it look kinda like screen tearing around those areas. Wondering if anyone knows why that might be?

Update:
Ok, I figured it out. It turns out that I got confused by GIMP's layer mode. The picture that I claimed "when I place them one on top of the other in any image editor, it looks perfect" is using "default" layer mode. If I change to "legacy", it's the same with what it looks like when in game.

I don't have too much understanding of the two modes GIMP offers, but note to myself that I should probably always use "legacy" when work on maps in the future.

I feel bad if someone actually spent time trying to look into this... Sorry about that!

Original post:

Hi all, glad I've found this great plugin for my mapping, thanks for creating it!
However I just have one problem that I cannot seem to find a solution to: When I add ground and parallax layers, the semi-transparent shadow in the parallax layer doesn't get displayed correctly.

To reproduce this issue, use "demo_ground" as the ground layer, and "demo_par" as the parallax layer.
demo_ground:
demo_ground.png
demo_par (it's the shadow in this image doesn't work right with the plugin):
demo_par.png
When I place them one on top of the other in any image editor, it looks perfect:
demo_full.png
However when I put them in a map with the plugin and run the test:
plugin_result.png
Somehow the shadow of the tree is off. It should be pretty clear that the color of the shadow changes abruptly on the tile edge. It seems like the shadow in the parallax layer is more opaque than it should be.

All I did was I put the two images in their organized folders and added "<par>\n<ground>" to the map note. That's it, I'm not using any plugin commands. (Should I?)

I have been searching for a solution or an alternative for a while and have failed. I spent months on the map and really sad that I can't get it to work... Could you help me out please? Thanks for your time!
