I'm not sure how to describe what I'm asking, but how fast are the SV Battler Frames?

I ask because when I want to preview what I've made, Aesprite has an option to change animation speeds and I'd want the most accurate I can get.

Does this make sense? If not, I'll post a screenshot of what I'm taking about when I get back at my computer.

Thanks!

Hello Strawberry Flower!
Usually 1 frame represents 1/60 seconds (as 60 frames pass in 1 sec.), so SV Battler should make a movement (3 frames) in 1/20 seconds (3/60).

Hope it's correct... And that it could help you somehow...

That's true for the frames in the game engine, but that's not the speed that the battle motions are played at - if it were, you would be barely able to see them with the human eye. :wink:

The battle motions update every 12 frames, so about a fifth of a second each.

These are my options when selecting my speed in Aesprite. Would I pick 0.5 then...?

I have no idea what those speeds correspond to in Aseprite. It should tell you in the manual.

Apparently, in Aseprite, the speed is done per frame (as in you set the speed in the frame properties) and it's set per millisecond. (link to article in documentation)

Since ATT_Turan said that MV's battle motions are at 12 FPS or 1/5 of a second, I'm guessing you put 200 in the millisecond portion. (Correct me if I'm wrong with my math)

So are you just wanting to see how it looks at that speed? Because, and I may be misunderstanding here, the speed is less important than the number and placement of the sprites on the battler sheet.

Finds notes for an old side project... Oh, that's right, the two tracks that sounded really cool and gave inspiration for the big bad in that game... Spends day working on cutscene from old notes, looks okay, now lets slot in the first track... um... I did have those tracks??? It was a year or so ago but I did buy them didn't I?
