Turn In Place v1.01
by mjshi- OK for use in all projects with credit
Get it here! (direct link)

Allows the player to turn in place before moving.
Great for when the player needs to cross busy roads~

Inspired by Sirbilly's Turn & Move for RPG Maker VX Ace.

Features
- Player is now able to turn in place
- Configurable delay before the player starts moving (default: 8 frames)
- Player will no longer be hit by cars due to their inability to look both ways before crossing the street

Installation
Drag into plugin folder, configure in plugin manager

Author's Note
Currently, this plugin is incompatible with any 8 direction or pixel movement plugins.
Perhaps I'll see to making it compatible if there is a high enough demand for it.

edit: oops, it seems that Soulpour has already made something similar... But! My code is more streamlined and uses default MV movement methods, so it's less likely to interfere with other plugins, and supports touch input... Or something like that xD

Update v1.01


- Fixed a bug that occurs with transfer events and event processing


- Slightly changed the way the plugin handles turning, should have an even smaller impact on FPS now

A most excellently simple plugin that I will certainly use. Thanks!

now my characters won't be hit by cars. But seriously, this is a great plugin.

Doesn't seem to work properly with other sprite dimensions

@McSundae Did you put Talk To Follower below Turn In Place? If so, you should be able to turn around and talk to the player's followers.


edit @gRaViJa whoops, I realized I never responded to your last post... Sorry about that! I'm not sure what's causing that graphical issue, since I've opened a new project and made the sprite dimensions nonstandard (I used 60x90 to test). Your sprite- is it composed of two characters? Like, the character sheets for the top half isn't connected to the bottom half? If so, that may have something to do with the plugin you used to have the top and bottom halves act together.

Hey, I was on a trip so couldn't respond sooner. No, the sheet is a single file. Exact size is 384 x 512.

I used the attached image (384x512) and am still unable to reproduce this bug on a new project, with the plugins in this order:





This bug is highly likely caused by plugin incompatibilities. Are you sure you don't have movement plugins? And could you double check for sprite plugins?

I think i know what the problem is. I only have a single character on the sheet (you can do this by adding $ to the name). Here's the sheet:





I always used XP and I always use single character sheets in MV too so i forget to mention this.

Ah. A quickfix for this would be to expand the character sheet by (4x) its width and (2x) its height. (that is, to not use single character sheets) Otherwise, I'll have to investigate this in detail, which may take awhile...


edit @gRaViJa Still no luck. I have a character file named "$sheet.png" in the characters folder, and the image is this:

I'd love to use this, but I need 8-directional movement for my game... ;-;

Unfortunately, 8 directional movement is implemented differently in different plugin scripts, and some are harder to be compatible with than others. You'd have to tell me the exact 8-directional movement plugin you're using, and anything I write for that is highly unlikely to work with any other 8 directional movement plugins. Also currently, you're the only person who has brought it up. It's unlikely that I'll write one, but you can link the movement plugin here and I'll take a look.

I find it a shame that I can't use these two scripts simultaneously, as my game needs diagonal movement, but I'd love to have turning in place.

The google drive link for downloading/viewing the plugin on his site appears to be broken, could you paste it onto Pastebin or some other text hosting site?

Yeah, I'm sorry-- I won't be able to write anything for you, specifically. There is no way to change Turn In Place to be compatible with that plugin because I can't adapt anything, I'd have to write a completely new plugin integrated specifically into Victor's diagonal movement. Again, I'm sorry I couldn't help >.<

Humans are fallible creatures, we all know that. It's when we're forced to look at ourselves that we start to disagree. :p
Expectation: Working on boss battle.
Reality: "Look at how awful are these code and database organization. Let me clean this mess", *yet, casually adding more modules that I have no idea if I would use it later*
Trying to learn to read Japanese so I read my manga. I like to buy them without all the edits made during translation.
The only thing getting me through today so far is coffee. And lots of it.
Amazing. I had seen it more than 10 years ago, but seeing Monster this year was an incredible experience. It was certainly one of the best endings I've ever seen in anime.
