So I'm using Yanfly Animated SV enemies and the plugin has a shadow feature.

Even in isolation in a new project with the required other plugins and shadows activated, I couldn't get these shadows to show.

did anyone have the same issue or a clue why?

Do you have installed any other plugins related to SV sprites, or do you have set shadow size to auto?

Maybe silly question, but have you edited plugin?

nope, I installed the newest versions of the required plugins without touching them.
But the shadows still won't show.
What am I doing wrong?

Oh! Now I see what is wrong. You are using animated SideView enemies actually without using SV sheet for enemies. Because it's happening same thing in my project. In order to see shadow you must specify battler image sheet with following notetag:
Code:
<Sideview Battler: FilenameOfEnemy>
//Without extension
and place that enemy sheet in sv_actors directory.
Of course it probably dramaticly change game concept, but for now it's only known to me solution. But there are animated sprites of default
Rmmv enemies here on this board.


edit:
No sheet defined: https://prnt.sc/p75qbl
With defined sheet: https://prnt.sc/p75re3

edit2: Don't bother with my image, I made a dude just to easier positioning in troop tab
enemies on map. :)

I was listening to songs by Chuck E Cheese's voice actor (Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup) when the meds I was taking for my stomach virus apparently stopped working. I can't take my next dose until morning, but it's no use anyway. I'm officially sick again. Of course, I'll definitely take the next dose either way, but it's useless now.
New profile picture! This time, it's representative of my current project.
I suddenly feel like making a game for little kids: a pointless sandbox of cute animals, silly collectibles, and random mini games.
Anyone else just like, not bother to make games themed around specific holidays? I know I won't get them done in time for it to make sense.
