I find it hard to find answers, so im not sure if I am doing it right or im just.......dumb
but I try and search this site for the questions I have and i get nothing, or google and i get nothing.....
example: google - can you use mv enemy sprites for mz, my results are just how to use custom sprites for mv
rpgmaker forum search - mz mv sprites, my results are again not what I am looking for.

So any tips on how to search for answers and where to look?

and then any answers to the question above? can I use mv sprites on mz? or are there any resources you CANT use on mz from mv?

thanks!

MV has pixel-based animations, MZ uses particle-based animations.

other than that all files from MV can be used in MZ, because they have the same grid size (48x48 pixel)

VX and VXAce have a grid size of 32x32 pixel, so you would have to resize the graphic file by 150% to make them usable in MV/MZ, and that 150% requires a good image program to convert and still has quality loss.

Be a bit less specific. I Googled "RPG Maker MZ MV assets" and came across all of the forum threads from when MZ was released describing which assets are the same in both engines (including enemies).

Also, typing extra words (such as phrasing it as an entire question, "can you use...") just gives more words to get not useful results, or that might exclude useful ones. When using search engines, only type the actual words that matter.

 I may actually have something I can put into the Boss Battle Build Bout by the time it’s due. It won’t be anything spectacular (or even great (and maybe not even good (I have no idea how to do combat (yay for nested parentheses)))), but I might have a submission none the less.
