Ok, so I've tried everything easy I can think of to no avail in this order
>Redownloading the latest Orange Overlay and Kaus' Ultimate Overlay (currently using Orange)
>Migrating my data to a new project
>Tried another map that was working, it is now broken
>Reinstalled again making sure to clean out the folder in Steamapps\Common as there were some files left there
>Created a completely new and clean project and did nothing other than add a fresh version of Orange Overlay, resized the starting map to 40x40, changed the tileset to exterior, added the image as ground using the appropriate note tag (<ground>), and added some tiles from a random building tile
All same results
It was working normally at one point
it DID reopen my last project I had open after I reinstalled the second time so I think I need to figure out where RM hides all of its extra files. If anyone knows a direct way to fix this then help would be appreciated. Otherwise if anyone knows where the Steam version of MV keeps all of its hidden files or even the app id that would be immeasurably helpful because something stuck in that is likely the cause. Otherwise I really can't do anything.
You did ask for a link to the plugin, this is to Kaus' Ultimate Overlay, the two are functionally identical but this link explains where each layer goes. These are to my knowledge very popular plugins, and RM should really do this natively anyways because people have been making scripts/plugins for this for at least XP, VX, and MV. Anyways here is the link https://forums.rpgma...t-plugin.48593/
