Basically I want a spell to shake the screen when it hits my actors. All works well except for the screen shake. I have everything set up fine, I know because it will pause for 400 seconds when the boss uses this move. 

The problem I'm having is  with the screen shake effect. Unless I misunderstand the effect its superposed to shake the screen, but its actually not doing anything. Maybe its supposed to shake the picture? I have tried it that way, but when I add the shake effect it doesn't display the picture at all. 

       # Pose for boss's power jolt'

    <action: boss2, reset>

    wait: targets, movement;

    anim: targets, effect;

    wait: animation;

    wait: 100;

    plane: screen, opacity 200, duration 40;

    plane: name 'Actor1_0', duration 60, opacity 200;

    plane: screen, power 20, speed 10, duration 50;

    wait: 400;

    effect: self, targets 100%;


(Note: The wait 400 was for testing the effect)


The Bold blue line is doing nothing. When I take that line out the picture displays correctly. This line was taken directly from victor's user manual.  I have scoured google, variouse forums, and can't find much on this. If anyone can point me in the correct direction I would be very grateful.

I just lost an hour plus of time to trying to modify the _battlefield sprite... when in reality MZ calls it _battleField ;_;

Even when debugging for the "undefined value", it looked exactly the same to my 20/60 eyesight.

I really prefer this_naming_convention rather than thisNamingConvention !!
hmm... I just solved one of the more annoying sideview battler problems in MV.. Passive States and Visual States can make it so when your character is in crisis HP, they don't go back to normal walk/wait when it's their turn. they stay in the crisis motion... neat.
Apparently all of LGBT reddit hates me. I posted a simple question and only got hate mail. What's the deal? The doompost was literally 6 months ago and I've changed my views since then and apologized.
