I've been trying out this neat new plugin for MZ that turns ordinary 2D battebacks into a pseudo-3D environment, looks great in the demo video but in my own project it's aligning my characters much higher up, with some of them hovering over the upper background image instead of on the ground where they should be, like the entire background has been shifted downwards for some reason. It's from a Japanese developer and I don't speak Japanese, and while some of the notes in the js file are translated into English they really aren't very clear to my poor uneducated brain -- it's definitely not the Battleback Scale parameter because lowering that value to the minimum doesn't help anything, and raising it just zooms the screen in further, making it worse. It's also unlikely to be a compatibility issue with other plugins because all I have installed currently are several Visustella plugins that aren't really doing anything. Can anybody take a look at it and tell me how to fix this?

Hi there!

The only way to know for sure, is if you disable all your plugins and test only the pseudo-3D one first. If the results are the same, then it is not a compatibility. But if the plugin works, you will have to enable your other plugins one by one to find the guilty.

Also, you need to specify what plugins you are using. Visustella has more than 60 plugins.

I guess I was assuming that someone wouldn't make a plugin that interferes with the core Visustella plugins since they're so basic and widely used -- rarely a safe assumption, but it just seems like it would make more sense to build upon them than make something that conflicts with them, since they're used for so much -- but after trying that it does appear to be the Visustella Battlecore plugin. Changing the plugin order has no effect, and I don't want to have to disable one to use the other but I'm kinda stuck here...

Indeed this conflicts with VisuMZ_1_BattleCore... I wonder if any one has asked @VisuStella if they would be super kind to make their battle core to be compatible with MPP_Pseudo3DBattle.js?

I bet there would be a lot of happy users out here after that ;)

I also noticed that, when it does work (BattleCore disabled), the camera pans around so much that you can sometimes see black edges of the screen where the bottom corners of the lower background layer were sort of skewed to create the effect... The plugin actually mentions this and has parameters for zooming in a bit further so that doesn't happen as much, but when it does happen it kind of almost ruins the pretty aesthetic of the whole thing. Still an awesome concept for a plugin, but I'd like to see it improved upon just a bit more before I feel like incorporating it into my game.

And hey, cool lighting plugin! :)
