    Preloader for RPG Maker MV
    by Dr. Yami and Archeia
    Download Link


    Description

    This is a plugin to Preload assets. This is in case Galenmereth's Preload Manager doesn't work for you. Both are also compatible!

    What does it do?
    The preloader has global and map-based preloading.
    • Global means that it will preload the assets when the game starts.
    • Map Based means that it will start preloading assets when you enter and/or start in a map.
    If you are experiencing lag or slowdowns when transferring to a new map, there's an option to release the assets from memory for every map change.

    How to use?
    • Open the Plugin with your favorite text editor. I highly recommend Sublime Text, Atom and/or Visual Studio Code. There are instructions inside the plugin and some examples so it'll be easy to use!
    • Video preloading only supports YSP - VideoPlayer. It will not work by its own.

    To Submit a Bug Report
    To make a bug report, simply report it in this thread.
    Chances are, I will find out about the bug in this thread than by making one in the JS Support forum.

    If your map reaches 10k+++ pixels I will ignore all reports about that.

    Disclaimer:
    We're super busy and we won't have time to do compatibility fixes or checks AT ALL. Please test it out yourself and ask the respective scripter for any issues that may happen.

    >>>NOTE!<<<
    HOWEVER, before you make a bug report! Download all the latest version of the plugins (and installing them properly). If you don't have the patience to do that, I won't share my patience to fix the bug. If you still get the bug after updating all the plugins and installing them properly, continue on and using this template:

    Here is the template to submit a bug report:

    Plugin Name: (What is the name of the plugin?)
    Error Message: If you received an error message:
    1. Press F8 when you receive it to open up the debug console.
    2. On the console tab, copy/paste the error log and paste it here.
    3. If you post a screenshot, host it on imgur.com or another website because the images posted here are tiny and I can't read it.
    How to Replicate Bug: In order for me to fix a bug properly, explain to me IN DETAIL, how you managed to get it to occur. If I cannot replicate the bug, I may ask you to upload a copy of your game's project for me online through either Mediafire, Dropbox, Mega.co or any other online hosting provider. Do NOT deploy the game. After doing so, it's best if you send it through private message if you don't want others rummaging through your game's files.

    Other: Post screenshots of the bug, screenshots of your plugin list, videos also help, etc. Anything that will make it more clear for me will help me out.

    Thank you for your cooperation!

    Do i need to write each file name individually? I just want it to preload the whole folder (characters, faces, etc). Can i only write down folder names like 'faces' or 'characters'?

    You have to do it individually. The point of preloader is
    Global - are resources you access everywhere
    map - are case-by-case resources.

    Preloading them all from the start is just putting unnecessary strain on your computer. Some don't have to be preloaded if they load fast.

    @JamesRyan @masterlobo for Audio, use Galenmereth's plugin.
    Terms of use is just use it with credit. The usual.

    I never tried.

    Does this preload battle animtions and all the character sheets as well? Been trying to fix the lag I get when my character cast a spell for the first time in combat
