Hello everyone,

I'm quite new to rpg maker and I have a problem with the events not snapping to the grid.

To be a bit more clear, i create an image using 48px by 48px grid, I align that image to the bottom and when I render in rpg maker it tilts the image up a few pixels.

Exemple Event image : 3 squares height (3x48px) with one black line on top and bottom as reference.

Exemple when the event is created in rpg maker ( the square are 96px x 96px):

When it's rendered, we can see that both black lines are too high compared to the grid.

It's a parallax background by the way but I don't think it plays a role in this tilt.

Does the filename for the graphic have a ! on the beginning of it?

No it didn't, I tried with it and it corrected the tilt.
Thank you very much, I struggled with that all day.

Why does it need a ! to fit the grid ?

By default, any character that doesn't have it is offset vertically by 6 pixels to line up better with cliff edges etc. and they also appear with their feet partially transparent on "bush" tiles. The ! stops these effects from being applied.

This is a little trick that could have been painfull to correct.

Thank you again for sharing your knowledge.

basically the original tilesets are designed to follow a square grid and NPCs would look bad if they were walking on the grid border instead of inside the grid.That is why the default sprite (which is assumed to be a person) is displaced upward.

however that would look bad for objects that need to be aligned to the grid, like doors or so.
So Sprites that have their filenames beginning with ! are designated as object sprites and disable all the special people functions - check the default sprites, all spritesheets with objects have that ! in the name.

So ghosts can go through walls and stuff, and depending their type (according to fantasy media) they can or can't interact with objects to a certain degree...

So why they don't always fall through floors? Do they always float and sometimes simulate walking? If things go through them how can they hear/see? And why sometimes they have clothing? Do clothes die as well?
