Simple question. I've got enemies with sv battlers, so how do I include them when I'm deploying a game with "exclude unused files" checked. Is there a different way than creating dummy actors for each animated sv_battler?

basically there are two different ways to tell the editor that a file needs to be included for the project to work.

one is that is is used somewhere in the engine, even if that part is never used in the game itself. This is often done with a fake map that is not connected to any ingame map, or with fake database entries.

the other way is a javascript command for registering resources, but unfortunately a lot of plugins do not use that command.

What's the javascript command?

The easiest way to do it is to have a dummy event that uses the "change actor image" to reference the image rather than using dummy actors. Alternatively you can have a dummy project you use for deployments, add the things that "exclude unused files" misses to it and then deploy with exclude unused files and overwrite the dummy project, then deploy that dummy project.

it should be listed in the help file - it was there for MV, and I don't know if it is the same for MZ

The snowy mountains in my game are finally done... what a crazy journey.
I participated in the official video event collection!
Well I am infinitely upset that I finally got a good idea... after the Touch the Stars game jam is pretty much over.

Gather resources to build a spaceship to escape the apocalypse! It would have been cool....
Thinking that if I get MZ, I'll work on a new Project. How about instead of just an RPG, I make it episodic, like an anime? You might even get fanservice. Oh, but I need the right costume for the character.
"but what even is an API??"
