    Ah, okay. I'll see what I can do about that, then.

    Is there a way to change if a weapon appears behind or in front of the character sprite? Sometimes the sprites just cover up the weapon. 

    Great script though! Thank you so much for making it!

    that's true, I simply hate when actors shoot with a bow, u can't see the bow  !I think it would be better if the sprite showed in front of it than behind

    to that i would want to add, behind or in front of an enemy.

    sure, it is more yanfly plugins related, because without a yanfly action sequence you won't possibly get near an enemy.

    well yanfly seems really busy with bugfixing his load of plugins, so if you consider doing this for actors might i ask to do so for enemies too?

     just go edit the sprite sheet and move the bow 8 pixels to the left ;)

    I think he meant layered on top of the character sprite. Which was what I was looking for. Another reason for this feature is so dual wield weapons can come from the offhand. Maybe even put a shield up to block attacks.

    I'll start working on this when I get back to this script. For now, I've only been able to work on one script at a time since I've been so busy with personal stuff, but hopefully that'll change soon.

    yup, sry if i was a bit confusing but i do mean the same, with the addition that you could say, a weapon is "behind" a character but "layered on top of" an enemy. sometimes my native language makes me mistranslate the context

    I've been trying to use this script for a while now, but it's not working anymore. Where should I place it in my plugins? i don't have item core turned on, I do have equip core turned on though. Maybe I'm not tagging properly?

    Bah, I wish it was something like that :| Things will hopefully calm down soon, and then I'll be able to put a lot more time into these plugins and make them the best that they can be.

    And maybe even make some new ones.

    You are boss, my friend. I will pray for your personal endeavors (like seriously. I am right now) that all works out for the greater good. And that any associated trial only serves to strengthen you.

    Hi guys! How are you? So, I read all this thread to try to understand why it's not working for me but I couldn't find the answer..
    Where exactly should I write the tags? In the weapon right? In the default sword note I pasted the example:

    " [EnhancedSprite]

    WeaponImage: weapons2

    WeaponID: 2

    WeaponHue: 155

    WeaponMotion: swing

    WeaponSound: ice2,0,100,100"
    And It's still not working, I keep having a sword...
    Yes, I Installed the plugin properly, downloaded via zip and it's the onlu plugin I left On..
    Any idea what's happening? Im in this for almost 1 hour and can't find the solution!
    Thanks!

    Hey, firstly thank you for the amazing plugin

    I seem to be getting an odd issue with this plugin and yanfly's item core plugin

    when battle testing through the database>troops, the script seems to work fine, however when I go into the actual game and battle, the sprites are defaulted the their normal sprites that came with RMMV

    this is only when yanfly's item core is on though, when I turn it off, it works both in battle test and in-game, the scripts may be clashing somehow?

    Thanks!

    I had it working once upon a time, but then I downloaded all new scripts (all Yanflys), and started using the Action Sequences plugins, and now I cannot get this one to work at all.  Is it not compatible?

    I am using the Yanfly battle core engine and this plug in seems to work correctly when you use select attack. However when ever

    you use a skill the weapon that the skill uses is the weapon that the last actor used during a regular attack. for example is I click

    on attack and my character uses his weapon all skills now use that weapon until someone else uses a regular attack. when

    someone else uses a regular attack now all skills use the weapon of the last person who used a regular attack. Don't know

    if it's the yanfly script or this script that is doing any colliding but as a hint:

    the note tag on the skill i'm using is

    <target Action>

    perform action

    motion swing: user

    motion wait: user

    action animation

    wait for animation

    action effect

    action effect

    death break

    </Target Action>

    the note tage on the weapon enhancement is

    [EnhancedSprite]

    WeaponImage: weps1

    WeaponID: 2

    WeaponsSize: 192x128

    WeaponsMotion: Swing

    -Now this is what I think the problem is. the Yanfly note tag "motion swing: user" is calling for a weapon to be swung.

    -by default rpg maker mv does not use weapons for any of the skills you use unless you apply the yanfly engine so

    the weapons being called is most likely the last weapon used in place of the Weapons 1 sword sprite.

    -the [enhancdsprites] plug in calls upon a specific weapon when using a "regular attack" since without the yanfly plug in

    skills don't support weapon sprites.

    -the yanfly note tage "motion swing: user" calls upon a weapon and without the [enhancedsprites] the weapon called upon

    is by default "weapons1, ID 2" if it's a sword.

    -my theory is that for compatibility the yanfly battle core has to call upon the note tags of the [enhancedweapon] for the right

    weapon when using the note tag "motion swing:user" but that would probably require cooperation OR this plug in could be

    modified to clear the last weapon used like a refresh note tag so the yanfly plug in doesn't call upon the last weapon used by

    the [enhancedsprite] plug in after using a regular attack since the yanfly plug in isn't calling forth specific weapons, it only

    uses the templates 'Weapons1, Weapon2, and Weapons3"

    by the way I got the Yanfly battle Core engine to work with enhanced sprites by putting enhanced sprites at the bottom of the plug ins.

    but I don't know. sometimes these two plug ins just act weird together.

    EDIT: Never mind on the refresh note tag, that will only cause the yanfly engine to use the original weapon template instead of last weapon used.

    what I want is to use the weapon sprite that is equipped to my character when I use a skill.

    Haven't tried the script yet, but this wasn't listed in feature so I thought I'd ask.

    Is it possible to have your character swing their weapon when using a physical skill? I find it strange that when fighters throw skill punches, it looks like they used magic.

    This is what I was talking about. All skills by default use that pose without the yanfly sequence pack2 you can't use a weapon but the problem is that the yanfly sequenes pack2 only uses

    the last weapon used by an actor who used the "enhancedsprite" note tag. if you don't use the regular attack  then the yanfly sequence pack2 uses the template Weapons 1 ID 2 if it's a

    sword.

    First of all Raxel I want to thank you for such a lovely script. I guess it was my fault that I couldn't get the

    correct weapon to show. For those that want to use this plug in and yanfly's. and want to use your weapon

    with you skill an example note tag would be.

    <Target Action>

    perform action

    motion attack: user

    motion wait: user

    action animation

    wait for animation

    action effect

    death effect

    </Target Action>

    Now that the sizeing exists, can you add the ability to use icons as the weapons image? I know it would be more basic looking but it's one thing I really miss from Ace side view battle systems. (almost every weapon icon ever made was made where the handle of the weapon is in the bottom right and went up to the top left. I have an icon sheet that's 16,000 x 512 that I converted over and combined with MV's icons and almost every weapon is like that.
