I am currently using MOGHunter's title layer plugin and menu command plugins. MOGHunter's title layer plugin allows for layer animations, but not rotation on a stationary axis. MOG has another magic circle plugin that allows rotation, which could theoretically work because the layer I am trying to rotate is a PNG circle, but a circle layer using that plugin sort of floats around the X/Y axes as it rotates instead of staying stationary. All I need is a plugin that allows a layer to rotate with speed and X/Y position adjustment. Does anyone know of a title menu plugin that does this?

Thank you!

You can use this line to add a rotation effect to any bitmap/sprite/image
you'll have to add it to the Title Plugin and find what they've named the image and replace _imagenamehere with what they've called it. Place the line under the "update" function.

this._imagenamehere.rotation += 0.01 or whatever value

Code:
Scene_Menu.prototype.createMagicCircle= function() {
    this._magicCircle = new Sprite(ImageManager.loadMenusMain("MagicCircle"));
    this._magicCircle.anchor.x = 0.5;
    this._magicCircle.anchor.y = 0.5;
    this._magicCircle.x = Moghunter.scMenu_MagicCircleX;
    this._magicCircle.y = Moghunter.scMenu_MagicCircleY;
    this._field.addChild(this._magicCircle);
};
here's an example of how Mog creates the Magic Circle in their Menu plugin. You can use that as a guideline for creating new images. this._field may be different though for the Title plugin.

Thank you for the response, @Levolpehh. I'm afraid I don't know anything or much about coding, so I'm not sure where to put it or what layer 2 is called in the code (the layer in Title Layers that I want to make rotate is layer 2). I tried rotating it just by making a 30 frame animation with each frame rotated another 12 degrees, but that degrades the quality of the image, and I want it slow which isn't smooth.

Besides my Might and Magic inspired project, I have always wanted to make a Fire Emblem-like game. Time is the culprit... Between life, composing music packs, and working on a game can it be done!? The tactical plugins for MV work quite well based on what I have tested.
Yaaay! My second public script is out and approved! A VX Ace Final Fantasy IX styled Throw Script!

I look forward to all the constructive feedback I get but most importantly I hope everyone who ends up using it enjoys!

Yaaaay! Making scripts is fun lol. :D
When you're lost out therrrrre and you're alllll alone, ahwahwah waitin, to carry you hooooommmme, uhhheverywhere you look! (someone hit me with those backing vocals)
