Hi!

I'm experiencing an issue with RPG Maker MV not showing taller doors in game. I bought and tried to use FSM DLC doors, but they just don't show their upper part in the game. I even tried copying the FSM sample game door event into my game map, and in the FSM sample game, the doors work, but in my they simply don't... Really wierd...

I also thought it might be a problem with some plugin, but even if I turn ALL my plugins off, the problem persists. The uppor part of the door just don't show in-game. I have no idea what the issue could be. :'(

EDIT: Why doesn't my post show attached screenshots of the event? Keeps saying ''Oops, we experienced a problem'.'

EDIT2: I'm sharing through Google drive, because I am unable to attach the images directly in my post for some strange reason.

it should work unless you name the file differently?

it should have $! in the start which shows 3x4 grid, if it doesn't,
it would read the 4x2 as character sheet (12 x 8).

if it does has teh $! on the start of the filename, than im not sure.

not showing taller doors in game.
please clarify:
in game or in editor?

The editor will always limit all event sprites to 48x48, because you need to be able to select and change the tiles around it.

In game sprites should be displayed full size, unless you made one of several possible mistakes.
One is mentioned above, another possibility is to have star-tiles above the event, hiding it.

I've moved this thread to MV Support. Thank you.



I don't think this has anything to do with the $! in the filename.

Either you are just looking in the editor, where only the 48x48 portion will show, and it will show correctly when you test play, or the section that IS showing has a star passage setting in the tileset, which will cause it to be shown in front of any events occupying the same space. That particular tile should be set to X I believe.

Thank you all for the support. I found the problem. 3 days ago my projects tilesets.json got corrupted and I didn't have any backup, so I had to again remake everything, including the passibility of all tiles.

When I was remaking everything, I made a mistake of putting a star on the top of every house enterance, so when I wanted to make a door, the top of the door wasn't showing because of this...

Anyway, the problem is fixed, so thank you all for your assistance. And sorry if I didn't post my question in the right forum. I'm new and learning as I go along.

Cheers.

what corrupted that file?
something like this doesn't happen randomly, and about half of the causes are either repeating or indications of much bigger problems.

NEVER ignore the reason for file corruption even if you have backups.

I don't know why it happened. I didn't have any power outage or forced restart of system.

The computer is 8 months old, so I doubt there is something wrong with the disk, but it's still possible... either way, this is the only file corruption problem I have had thus far, so I'm hoping everything will be Ok.

I've also made a backup of the project files, but I really hope it's not the disk dying or something, because I have many important things on that drive...

have you placed the project folder into a cloudsync, or have you allowed Microsoft to place your documents into OneDrive?
Because that is one of the most common causes for file corruption in the RPG-Makers...

All those cloudservices are optimized for regular file access. But there are a very few programs that don't use regular file access, and their files should never be subjected to a cloudsync.
That are databasing programs like MS Access, Filemaker, some others AND all programs of the RPG Maker Series.
A database keeps their files constantly open for easier and quicker access - and that collides with a cloudsync because only one program can access a file at any one time.
So if you have placed your working directory into a cloudsync that will not help with backups but risk file corruption whenever the editor is open.
You can use cloudstorage for backup and distribution, but only manually - never place the working directory into cloudsync.

Also, just to mention it, you don't need to have that tile on your houses. If you look at the door animations, they should show the doorframe and black entrance behind the door as it opens already, so there's no reason to also put it in your map - you can just put the event over the plain house tiles.
