So let's say I have 100 text events using face graphic JohnDoe.png, each one using an expression cell (1, 2, 3, etc). Is there any way to replace all of those instances with BobHeart.png and retain the cell number?

I can't just save my new image as JohnDoe.png because the filename specifies the number of expressions for a bust plugin. (So in reality, I need to change John[Exp1x5].png to John[Exp1x7].png since I added expressions, but I thought that would be more confusing.)

If anyone has figured this out, please let me know! Otherwise I'll start replacing them manually.

you'll need a multifile text editor and run a search and replace of the strings on all json files of the project.
there are several editors that can do this, I use textpad for example.

Thank you! Textpad worked perfectly.

Sigh...I can do everything I need for this game but make actual sprites and tile maps for it. Guess I'll look into hiring someone for that
Goes looking for assets, ends up creating memes. I have priorities?
i'm working on finishing an old game in vx ace (the first game i tried to make in vx ace), and it's making me realize how many things i've come to take for granted in mv (like the additional BCDE tile layer and the plugin manager).
It's ma birfday! Gonna chill and work on my project, editing some icons for my compass rn. Later It's pizza and a movie, maybe Blazing Saddles...
I really hope Google stadia/Amazon luna become successful household "consoles" in the future only because I could see it being 1000x easier to get RPG Maker and other indie games on their platforms & if so I PRAY they have gate keepers to keep half baked indie games out of the mix so they don't end up like steam/itch.io with 1000s of incomplete RM projects that continue to give our community a bad stigma.
