Hello, everyone. I'm very new to the RPG Maker series, MV being the first and only installment I've ever used, so I've been doing a lot of research for it. Still, I'm having a problem with the Character Generator that I can't find a solution for.

I'll make the character, then export the face, walking animations, damage animations, and battle animations to the appropriate folder. I make sure to save each one with a $ in front of the name. The face and battle animations turn up just fine, but the walking animation will not turn up; my character is effectively invisible. The image of the sprite doesn't even show up in the database, though the face and battle sprite do.

I checked transparency to make sure it was off, just in case, though it seems to be a problem with the file itself. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.

The $ in front of the filenames is wrong. The generator exports the sprites into a regular 8-sprite-sheet (you can import an existing sheet and chose which of the 8 positions to use to reduce the number of files needed).


That means it is NOT a single sprite, and must not have the $ in its name - the $ is only for sprites that have the format of single spritesheets, not for exports that are part of an 8-sprite-sheet (no matter how many of those 8 positions are really used).

I see! I must've misunderstood that from the other resources I read. So I just make the file name anything I want?

Got a windowskin working nicely to go with Mog's menu plugins.

A bust of my character, Lizzabelle, that I put together in GIMP. I combined the RMMZ generated face with my actual illustration of her. This is just me experimenting with busts. I don't really want to use busts in dialogue, but perhaps in the character menu.
