This is the sort of query that is very difficult to search for posts about, so please forgive me if this is either a solved issue or if the post is not in the right place.

I have custom parallax maps that include inclines. So I'd like for the right-arrow to temporarily input as down-right when players are walking upon the incline. To simplify: the player holds right, and the actor moves right, until they hit a certain region (using Yanfly Region Restrictions perhaps?), at which point the player holding right-arrow moves the actor down-right, down the incline.

I am currently using a diagonal movement plugin, yes, but there's nothing in that plugin that might assist or permit this kind of functionality. Again, apologies if this is not in the right forum but this is the sort of query where I cannot tell if it belongs in plugin requests or general help.

Many thanks!

Look up stairs. There are a good handful of plugins written to have your left/right movement go diagonally on staircases, delineated by events with specific notetags. You can use any of those.

You know, I would have never thought to search for that -_- Simply because I'm technically not using sideways steps, I'm using inclines. Very silly!

@caethyril has a "slope movement" plugin that has solved my issue using region tiles flawlessly in under 5 minutes -- easiest most straightforward fix ever. Thank you to the amazing caeth and also to you Turan!!! Hugs hugs hugs.

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.
