It's kinda hard to explain this with words, but when using Yanfly's STB (Standard Turn Battle) extension plugin alongside the side view battlers, a strange animation bug occurs after actors have performed their action. You can see this for yourself by installing YEP Battle Engine Core and YEP_X_STB (They are part of Yanfly's free plugins, don't worry), and entering a battle with a party of 2 actors or more.

When a battle starts, all sideview battlers begin their standing idle animation, and after the player selects a skill or item from the command menu, the corresponding battler performs the respective motions, and then they should resume their idle animation. Normally this is the case, except for the last battler to act before the enemies. For some strange reason, the last battler doesn't assume the standing animation but remains frozen, un-animated, until their turn comes again. No other battlers are affected by this problem, it's just the last actor in your party to act, or if there's only one, that actor.

I assume the function that updates battle motions is not properly overwritten or something. I tried calling battler's requestMotionRefresh() method, among other things, but nothing is working and I'm stumped on how to proceed.
Does anyone have any insight on where or how should I look for the way battle sprites and motions are handled, or any idea how to solve this problem?

I also had this problem with that system and I never found a solution. It sucks because this is the only battlesystem I've found that works with yanflys other plugins and does the one person at a time thing

Thank you for your reply!
Yeah, Yanfly's system works great aside from that little inconvenience.

Thanks for directing me to the ITB,I was aware of it but the first time I tried that it conflicted with Yanfly's Battle AI. However it turns out I just had to disable Dynamic Actions for it to work properly.

I'll manage with that, thanks again for your help!

edit:
Since I found a good alternative, I consider this thread is solved. Thank you!

Making games is the only thing I'm good at. Real talk.
So, uh... where's the RPG Maker MZ update with the MV animation system? Is there a release date confirmed?
Also I'm kind of brave enough to admit this. I... I have a crush on Sephiroth.
Please don't call me anything offensive. I'm naturally crazy.
thanks to a lot of lunatic coding... my game finally has a stun mechanic that I feel really good about. damage enemy's mental psyche (mp), and once empty, hitting with certain attacks trigger combos that can stack the damage.
Waiting for the 1.40 update before testing out my copy of MZ so that I don't end up adding unnecessary work to my plate. Meanwhile the current fourth draft for my story is taking shape, and I'm fleshing out the lore as I realize how things would make better sense here and there for the world that I'm building.

Just found out about your complications. I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I wish I could do something substantial for you, but our distance from each other makes that an impossibility. Still, if you ever need to talk or vent, I'm here.
