After browsing the web and the forums, I couldn't really find a straight answer. All the solutions seem to involve plugging in a script or changing this manually, and only apply to sprite sheets which are customized to 8x4.


Basically, I want to use 8 FRAMES on the default sprite sheet for 'down'. The sprite only moves that direction anyway, and that sprite is only used once, so using a script seems impractical. I have zero experience with scripting and I'd like to avoid using them for now.


The current default is using only 4 frames. It makes the animation look choppy; not as smooth as I want.


Is there a way to automatically cycle between row 1/2 or 3/4 while the character is moving down, or do I have to change the graphic manually every 4 frames? (Something equally impractical.)


If it helps any to visualize, the sprite is a car moving straight down the screen, top to bottom, with windshield wipers swiping left and right.


Would the solution be to turn the character left or right? If i do, will the sprite still move top to bottom when 'turned'?


Thanks!

I just successfully tested changing music by region, and changing it between continents on the world map after getting on/off the airship. I had to override the default audio transitions with eventing to make it change smoothly but it worked.

Finally scripting out the story after WAYYYYY too long of having 0 idea of how to approach said scripting.
2020 has started off pretty stressful for me, but no need to fear. I have my mood fixer:
