So I made an XML file for the plugin to read, but it ain't working; and I have no idea why.

The character image is a normal size image without the "$". All images in the image are 48x48p. The extra frames (diagonal) are under the original frames (up/down/lef/right). The total resolution of the complete image is 576 pixels wide and 384px tall. The characters are listed 3 x 48 wide, and 8 x 48 tall (8x48=384).

The original file is called "YouFemale", which is used as the players' character in MV.
I made a copy of that copy called "YouFemaleExtra", which is used in the XML file.

This is what I have inside the XML file which is inside the images/characters folder, the same folder as the 2 images I mentioned above:
<set tag="standing" sheet="YouFemaleExtra">
<!-- Standing state uses YouFemaleExtra.png -->
<animation direction="down_left">
<frame x="48" y="240" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation direction="up_left">
<frame x="48" y="336" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation direction="up_right">
<frame x="48" y="288" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation direction="down_right">
<frame x="48" y="192" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
</set>

<set tag="moving|dashing" sheet="YouFemaleExtra">
<!-- Moving & Dashing states also use YouFemaleExtra.png -->
<animation rate="3" direction="down_left">
<!-- Animates at rate of 3 FPS -->
<frame x="0" y="240" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="48" y="240" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="96" y="240" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation rate="3" direction="up_left">
<!-- Animates at rate of 3 FPS -->
<frame x="0" y="336" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="48" y="336" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="96" y="336" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation rate="3" direction="up_right">
<!-- Animates at rate of 3 FPS -->
<frame x="0" y="288" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="48" y="288" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="96" y="288" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
<animation rate="3" direction="down_right">
<!-- Animates at rate of 3 FPS -->
<frame x="0" y="192" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="48" y="192" width="48" height="48" />
<frame x="96" y="192" width="48" height="48" />
</animation>
</set>

<!-- Also supports XML defined colliders, applies to entire character -->
<collider>
<circle cx='0.5' cy='0.75' r='0.5' />
</collider>

I have tested it with different images, with or without the plugin command, turning all other plugins off, turning all plugins off except those from Altimit Movement itself; but nothing I tried works.

So if someone could help me out, that would be much appreciated!

1. Can you add a link to the plugin you're talking about? So people can check the instructions on how it should work

2. Any errors in the console? (press F8 during playtest to open it)

3. Please add a screenshot of your plugin order

4. Try removing the comments from the XML. In XML comments are parsed as their own nodes so it could mess up things if the plugin isn't written well to ignore comments

Woke up on an awful nightmare of being banned here because some mod didn't liked me in a super-heroes freeform round robin RP where I used throwing normal hammer as power and it was qualified being too OP. XD Nice to read you all guys. Will not wait next nightmares.
Staring at all the RPG Maker versions I have and realizing that my project has been a long time coming. But, I finally feel like I have the knowledge and experience to make it into something good.
We're almost done with the jam game! :D
I get scam calls all the time so today I gave them a piece of my mind. They hung up on me. Sweet revenge.
