Sorry if this has been posted before, as the title says, I need a plugin that preloads the game as I am publishing it for a website like Newgrounds. I know there's one for MV but is there MZ version yet?

I have checked em out and unfortunately, it only preloads images, not sounds or video files.
Not the one I am looking for :(

That seems interesting, I will try them as temporary solution but if possible I will wait for one that's made for MZ that pre-load everything properly.

There is this: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...-plugins-in-mz-100-plugins-fossilized.135523/ to use MV plugins on MZ. Check if it works for using the MV plugin you want. There is a list of tested MV plugins, but others not on the list may also work.
Plugins for optimizing the underlying engine probably aren't going to work so well.

For preloaders, I think it's likely there will be mixed results. MZ got rid of the ImageCache object type, so at the moment I just am providing a fake ImageCache object for MV plugins to play with while MZ handles image loading like normal.

If the preloader is just running through a bunch of load commands real quick (instead of creating their own cache based on ImageCache), it probably will work. If it's doing something more complex who knows.

I have heard that MZ might be a little better about loadtimes out of the box, but I can't verify that one way or the other.
