Good evening.

[before I start, I can sense that this question, or a similar alternative of it, has been asked before somewhere, and I looked in this particular forum for answers, but they all turned out as vague answers. Do excuse this if this question has been here before.]

After being recently introduced to RMVXA Face Graphics/Busts/Portraits and Scripts, I would like to know a way to put the portrait of the character (not face) on text when the character is speaking, but is there a way to do this without script?

The reason I ask this is because I have zero skill with script. Some answers told me to get a script somewhere but since I know nothing about script, it would be hazardous to the game if I implemented a script in the wrong place or the wrong area and create another problem. Not only that, I am wary of some scripts; (if some can be trusted; it may seem irrational of me but you can almost never be sure.)

So if you know of any ways to implement a character's bust/portrait with text (as the character speaks) without script, it would be appreciated. If there are no ways without script, please list a trusted script and instructions on how to handle it and place it correctly/or just a link to the thread. And do tell if credit is required for that particular script.

[Please post out-of-site links if they are truly necessary.]

Thank you for your time,

- Tornado Summoner

You can use the show picture command - Center (120,272) will put the character bust on the bottom left side of the screen and picture command - Center (410,272) will put the bust on the bottom right side of the screen. Just remember to put Erase Picture command after that character is done talking.

The below eventing is what you can use for a left-side bust above the text.

And you get this:

Keep in mind, to make it left-side, you use X: 119 and Y: 175. To put it on the other side, you can use X:410 and Y: 272. Use an image editor like www.picresize.com to flip the picture horizontally, so it looks like this:

EDIT: This is practically the only way to use busts with text, without a script. The Show Picture command only draws the picture -behind- the text box, and it just looks ugly.

^Yeah, I forgot I am using a small text box and gave the wrong X and Y cords.

Some drawings I made in Lapis, one day I intend to involve them in some RPG Maker project.
* maybe two wall frames
*or some sprite flower tiara, or maybe it inspires someone to do something.

Do you happen to have any of the two lockpicking minigames in RPG Maker MZ format?
I'd love to use them both in my game, and the only ones I've found are yours, but they are in MV format. Strange no one has made a single one for MZ yet. I am hoping you have - but just on the down-low.

Trying to draw some pixel art cliffs. Which side looks better, left or right?
