SV Overlays Upgrade
(version 1.00)
by SumRndmDde
 ​
Intro:

This is probably the greatest thing I've created in my life.

What This Plugin Does:

This Plugin allows the user to add more Overlays than the default ones provided.

Overlays are the animations that are played on the Battler when they are affected by a certain State in Side-View Battles.

Furthermore, this Plugin allows you to customize the position of a State's overlay, and even change the speed in which the Overlay Animation is played! 

Pretty awesome, right?

How To Use It:

This Plugin's usage is very simple.

#1

First thing's first:

If you wish to add more SV Overlay Animations, you'll need to do so by adding them to the bottom of the "States.png" file.

This file can be found in:

img/system/States.png

You can check out an example of this by going to the sample States.png file I placed in the "Downloads" section of this Topic.

I added on 9 extra Animations that can be used.

#2

As for adding or customizing the SV Overlay Animations, you can do so using Notetag Commands in the States.

Simply go into the Notetag Box of a State, and input any of the following commands in order to give it a custom Overlay Animation, custom position, or a custom speed.

Notetag Commands (for States):

<animationRow: #>

Changes the State's Overlay animation to the animation in the # row in your

States.png file (found in img/system).

By default, the rows are:

1) Poison

2) Blind

3) Silence

4) Rage

5) Confusion

6) Fascination

7) Sleep

8) Paralyze

9) Curse

10) Fear

11+) Any Overlay Animations you add to the file

 

<animationFrameWait: #>

Changes the amount of frames that are waited in between each

of the State's Overlay's animation frame.

The default is 8.

If you lower the number, then the animation will play faster.

If you raise the number, then the animation will play slower.

 

<xAnchor: #>

Changes the X Anchor of the State's Overlay.

Anchors are relative to the Battler's sprite.

By default, the X Anchor is 0.5, meaning it is placed

in the half-way point of the Battler.

If the X Anchor is 0, the Overlay will be on the Battler's left side.

If the X Anchor is 1.0, the Overlay will be on the Battler's right side.

 

<yAnchor: #>

Changes the Y Anchor of the State's Overlay.

Anchors are relative to the Battler's sprite.

By default, the Y Anchor is 1, meaning the Overlay's sprite's bottom

is placed on the bottom of the Battler's sprite.

If the Y Anchor is 0, the Overlay will move down the length of the 

Battler's sprite's height.

If the Y Anchor is 0.5, the Overlay will move down half the length of the 

Battler's sprite's height.

If the Y Anchor is 1.5, the Overlay will move up half the length of the 

Battler's sprite's height.

#3

I also added Parameters that changes the default position and animation speed of the SV Overlay Animations. These will affect all the features of the states that are not explicitly configured. They're pretty self explanatory, and you can revisit the descriptions for the Notetag Commands if you're confused about anything.

Screenshots:










Download:

There is a link to download the plugin in the description of this YouTube video.

It's a tutorial for the plugin also, so feel free to watch and enjoy it!    :p

Also, you can get a sample States.png with 9 extra animations here:

(They are mostly just edits of already existing animations, so don't get too excited.)

Terms of Use:

Two rules:

1) This script is free for usage in non-commercial and commercial projects.

2) If used in a commercial project, give credit to "SumRndmDde" somewhere!

FAQ:

Q: The plugin receives an error or doesn't work for whatever reason.

A: Post whatever error you get or what won't work in a reply, and I'll see what I can do.

It would be so much simpler if you were just using the normal animation tab instead and tag the state with X animation like how Ace scripters did it, this overlay crap is bad.

Seems like you put a lot of effort on it as well, such a shame.

Might I suggest, if you can find it, the ability to change the hue of the selected overlay? I'm not sure if that's possible or easy to do, but it would further enhance the utility <3

Mmmm, if it was that simple, I would've done so.

Sounds like a good idea. I'll look around and see what I can do.

I got a property note of null error?

EDIT: Nevermind, this script wasn't the issue

Plugin work great! It's a wonder why this feature wasn't default for MV.

Really nice! Work perfectly!


But if i had two states only one will be shown. Can you do a rotation of all states, like the icons do it?

Is there any way to add to this script, the ability to set the sprite priority for the state overlays?


If I make a custom state, that say, gives you angel wings, by using the character generator's angel wings, I want it to show behind the battler. Is this something that can be done in the future?

So, the other day i come across to became closer to other developers and realiza im not even a novice. i am lower than thrash rigth now, worse than people that don´t know anything about this things cause i used to think i knew. good news is; today thrash, tommorrow, maybe not so much, and someday, i´ll be a god?
Ahh, end of the day stinky feet, fresh out of the boots. Smells like a job well done. Seriously, I have to rinse my feet when I get home, or it's not fair to my wife.
Stream will be live shortly with some pixel art! Feel free to drop by!

Can't believe I forgot to put an image of my drawing pad! It looks kinda like this, maybe I'll get a better pic tomorrow...
Backup tip: If you don't want to back up your whole project every day, at least back up everything *except* your Image and Audio folders, which you can do weekly/as needed/etc.
