Haven't been able to find a plugin to address this, but does anyone know of a plugin that allows for slower-than-1 parallax scrolling?

I'm trying to do a thing with clouds where they move reallllllly slowly :)

Thanks!

I think that's technically just an editor limitation, the engine has no trouble with fractional parallax speeds.

Kinda hacky, but you could try a Parallel map event that runs once, like this:

◆Comment:Set parallax speed to: X = 0.2, Y = 0.3. ◆Script:$gameMap._parallaxSx = 0.2; : :$gameMap._parallaxSy = 0.3; ◆Comment:Erase until player visits this map again. ◆Erase Event
Easy-copy version of the script call:
JavaScript:
$gameMap._parallaxSx = 0.2;
$gameMap._parallaxSy = 0.3;
If you want only one of the directions (X or Y), you can omit the other one.

(Note that this script call will have no effect unless the parallax is already set to loop in the editor.)

Works absolutely perfectly.

As usual, thank you so much @caethyril :LZSgrin::LZSgrin::LZSgrin: So much gratefulness for all the help you offer.

Closed!!

working on an A/V sync system for my game! was NOT expecting the first roadblock to be accessing a variable from a public class!! Computers are so finicky sometimes :kaosigh:
For the first real time since my game's inception I found myself actually having fun playing around with my party's skills while testing out some battles! So much so, that I actually forgot what I was doing for a minute and had to force myself to move on to the next thing! :guffaw:

That's got to be a good sign considering it only has place holder animations, enemy skills, troop comps, etc. right now. Feels good!

FINALLY, I figured out how to get the "tail" to appear IN the window and not directly below it lol. now it looks like it's part of the window and not hanging from the bottom of it.
