I used PixaTool to convert VX Ace Battlers to pixel art with minor sharpen effect. no anti-alias
Pixel art style looks a bit reminiscent to older Shin Megami Tensei however not as smooth.



In addition, death animations are made from Juice FX with Thanos Effect. 20 frames long
Thanos Effect is like dispersion effect where it adds particles drifting away from source.




Fancy Death script (RGSS3) is effective with battler death animations for enemy death.

You can find the script here- https://rpgmaker.net/scripts/322/

Zip file include 74 battlers in Battlers folder, also Animations folder
You can find an image "how-to" for visual setup on battle animation for battler death.
Please check Fancy Death script first.

I bought PixaTool and Juice FX through GameDev bundle on itch.io

PixaTool - pixelates graphics also has features to change palette and add retro filtered effects

Setting I used for VX Ace RTP Battlers-
Pixelate W: 2
Pixelate H: 2
Sharpen: 15

I also used another paint program after I export an image, then resized it in Nearest Neighbor for double size.

To animate with Thanos effect, you need Juice FX

Load Project with Thanos_Effect which is found in Example_Projects folder.

For certain images, I have to adjust the speed to fit in with frames processing

However, this program isn't formatted for RPG Maker. I've reformatted/ centered/ resized/ cropped the frames manually.

Default canvas size is: 128x128 | 256x256 | 512x512
RPG Maker animation cell size is 192x192

Animation sheets pack took several hours during past, almost, 3 days working on this. I'm happy with the results.

Original animation size is small, it can be Zoom 2 times (200 in cell properties) in animation editor to fit with battlers size.

In the preview for angel death animation is cut off before frames reaches full completion-
That can be fixed with Yanfly Engine Ace - Ace Core Engine script under line 178 to adjust ANIMATION_RATE. [I used 2]

bro how do I have over 30 OCs
A good way to mix your own music? What's the learning curve on that?
Would it be better to pay a composer?
What theme for the next windowskin? You'll decide. Tell what you wanna see and I'll try for.
I just saw in a manga an interesting mechanic - setting up a stationary teleport beacon that one can go to no matter where one is in a dungeon. I think it'll work with a similar setup to how I did my airship transition.

Ooh what if you could set up multiple beacons and choose from a list of the beacons you set up?

Hmm...
