Hi all,
I'm currently trying to make one of my enemies use a hammer with some of its attacks. I'm using YEP_X_AnimatedSVEnemies to do this, but it's not working quite correctly. I've put the following tags into the enemy description:

<Sideview Battler: HAMMERNEMY>
<Sideview Weapon: 24>
<Sideview Attack Motion: swing>

Weapon 24 is usually the Stun Rod but I replaced it with a hammer sprite in the system files.
Using these settings, the hammer shows up when attacking, but for some reason only when the skill it is using is Skill #1 (the default Slash).
Any other skill won't show the hammer, even if the skill is literally a copy-paste of Skill #1 in a different place. Is there some parameter that I've forgotten to change in the plugin settings or something?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not quite sure but one troubleshooting tactic that's never failed me is to make a new blank game to test out the plugin and change a couple things little by little while recording the results, maybe you'll find something that you missed. otherwise id also check some tutorials and thoroughly note down the steps in a checklist fashion, then go down the list to see if you can find any discrepancies within your code.

I've put it into a new project and the same thing happens. I'd love some proper help with this as I've looked everywhere I can find and nothing seems to be working.
The enemy only uses that weapon animation when using skill #1. Also, for some reason in this new project, whenever my enemy attacks it plays Animation 52 (Powerup 2), even though its attacks are not magic-based and there's nothing on the skill or enemy pages that indicate it to be a skill attack.
I've likely done something very stupid that I haven't figured out yet, but nothing that I've changed has helped with this. Copy-pasting Skill #1 to a different slot and using that skill instead doesnt change anything so I doubt its in the Skill tab...
This is incredibly frustrating, i just wanted an enemy with a hammer :(
Any help would be appreciated, I can attach my testing project if need be.

that would probably be a lot more helpful then us just swinging wildly trying to hit a solution. Then we could actually see the program itself and how it’s running and maybe one of us will be able to figure it out.

My new cutscene system makes it so much easier to add parallel stuff happening in the background, I can easily fill the whole screen with action.

I remember once when I was at Disney's Animal Kingdom and I got to dance with some of the cast members! It was so much fun! After the show my dad and I got frozen lemonade and some ice cream. It makes me feel better remembering the good things about my dad... maybe I will return to Orlando.
spending almost entire day to mod skyrim but it still couldn't run properly :(
