Ace, MV and MZ (and probably VX) did a not-so-lovely thing in that when you change event pages, the facing direction on the new page is not always obeyed - it depends on what the default direction was on the prior page, and whether the event is still facing that default direction.

If your NPC is facing right when the event page changes, try putting your down pose on the same row of the character sheet (the one that would be facing right if it were a full character - which I THINK is the second row). If this doesn't work, try putting the down pose on the top row.

Personally I have just overridden that bit of code to do the same thing XP always did - if your event page says the character is facing down, then the character is facing down, no matter what page was active previously or what direction it was facing before this page became active.

Thank you, it worked!

Sometimes a mechanic that is meant to add challenge is just annoying. Even the Final Fantasy games did not completely escape this pitfall of design. (FF8 draw system I'm looking at you - grrrr)
starting working on the sprites for one of my games major antagonists finally. here's the first frame of his chanting motion in battle.
Have spent too much time hammering out with a friend just how to make a reoccurring enemy that permanently learns skills you use against her.
I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.
