    Plants You Can Find In Hot Places?

    Bit of a short topic here. I'm adding alchemy to my game and what you can use will include anything you could find around a volcano. But I can't find a single plant icon for the item sheet to match the extreme hot climate. Can anyone help me find some? While we're it what other icons would fit this sort of setting for the over world sprites as well as item sheet? Thank you for reading giving feedback. ^^

    Movies As OGV

    I'm finally messing around with the movie feature for VX Ace, and I need a little help with the quality. I went ahead and animated a very short sprite animation which will serve as the opening for the game proper after I complete it. However near the end it gets all pixelated and skips once or twice, so before I go and waste hours trying to figure it out I wanted to ask anyone here if they might be able to help me get the right settings for this OGV format to save time a little bit of time. Ill provide a screenshot and a zip of the animation in question down below. As you can see I'm using VLC Media Player. It coverts my mp4 into OGG and all you gotta do is change that extension to OGV to make it readable as a movie. Thanks for reading and giving feedback. ^^ Sonic_Chronicles_Intro_WIP__2.7z

    Movies As OGV

    I've tried both suggestions but when the camera scrolls up to Sonic at the end it still gets blurry. So what else can I do? Bit of a quick question. Can't somebody build a custom script to allow VX Ace to run other formats for movies?
  4. Okay this is a very simple problem that I'm probably naive for not figuring it out. I've been testing around with shift-clicking to make the walls and ceiling of my dungeon to look smoother, but as a result the player can now walk into the walls as if he's Casper The Ghost and I don't know how to fix it. I'm using Kai Monkey's Random Dungeon Script Version 2, along with Wrath Of The Volcano tile set (I can't share it as its an tile set you gotta pay to download, but a simple Google Search of the name will bring it up) and yes I made sure the tiles are set to be blockable, ergo not allowing to be walked on. Does anyone know how I can shift-click and not have the player go through the walls? If not what can I do to make the walls connect without looking like boxes just pushed together? Thanks for reading and giving feedback. ^^

    Shift-Clicking Equels Ghost Mode?

    I didn't think of that. Okay, Ive made a copy and removed Wrath Of The Volcano. When you load this copy ignore the forest and go to Red Mountain, as the former hasn't been touched in a while. Talk to Metal Sonic and after he teleports you to MAP002, just walk to the volcano and it'll ask to take you inside. I've tested and the same issue is still there. If it'll help you take any tile and make the grid. Here's a screenshot to help. Sonics_Copy.7z

    Shift-Clicking Equels Ghost Mode?

    This is my problem with a lot of scripts. Sometimes they just assume you'll know how this works or where to put certain things, but I'm probably just not that quick. It takes a lot of trial and error, but I once I start understanding it gets easier. I can't link my project, as the tile set I'm using, Wrath Of The Volcano, is one you have to buy to use. So by linking it to use the editor would be robbing the creator if somebody uses it to get it for free. I can share screenshots though. As you can see the wall I'm using is A. P.S if you get the demo for this script and if it's in txt format, just rename it and send it to another folder, I believe that fixed it for me. https://kokororeflections.itch.io/kr-wrath-of-the-volcano-tileset-for-rpgs

    Editor Won't Run

    I booted up RPG Maker VX Ace for the first time a few days ago and started working on an old project. I was messing with a new tileset I've installed and as I was getting the feel of how the tiles worked, I shut my laptop, reopened it and....crash. I had to force turn off my laptop. Now when I try opening the exe, RPGVXAce Project (.rvproj2), it said. So I copied and replaced that dll file, and now it's saying. So, what do I do now? Start from scratch, or is there a way to resolve this? And not sure if it'll help, but here's the error log.
  8. I know you can just use the same set move route that doors and chests use, turning left and right, however with one sheet shown below that wouldn't really look right. As you can guess this project is Sonic related, and I wanted to replace the Crystals with the classical checkpoints to save the game. I got the frames just right but I just can't get it to animate. When I test it the event just animates one frame and freezes became it can't move. It's not meant to move around, so I need it to show the frames as if its walking but standing still on the spot. Does anyone know how to do that? I've tried the walking, stepping animations along with direction fix. I've tried to get it to simply step but it only can forward and backward. So that won't work. If it turns out this is impossible without scripts, should I just make each frame its own sheet and changing the character graphic? Thanks for reading and giving feedback. ^^

    Editor Won't Run

    I was able to fix the editor. I went into the Data Folder and hit the restore button on the files it was having trouble with. So that's lucky. I still have to add a bit of my progress but at least I didn't lose everything.

    Editor Won't Run

    I booted up a few of the data files in Notepad and Notepad++ and, one was blank, one was in something like Chinese text and another is clearly corrupted text. Is any of that normal? To be honest starting from scratch wouldn't be too bad, I can reuse everything from graphics to sound, and it'll help me relearn the script for the combat. But I'm just going through everything first before hitting the reset button.

    Editor Won't Run

    I've created a new project folder and copied over everything but the two files named Game, and it seems like the problem is coming from the Data folder. First it was Common Event Data, then System Data, and now Map Data.. So what do I do? Just use an old backup and redo everything from the ground up? Or is there another way to fix these files?

    Editor Won't Run

    That happens mostly with Flash Macromedia unless I close its window first, but when you have 2 toddlers you tend to forget these things. At least I save constantly after few minutes. Hm, well other editors can open up other projects with no issue so it's definitely just this one editor. I'll try what roninator2 suggested and if that doesn't work I'll try the hard reboot. The only thing I dread about beginning from scratch are the scripts..
  13. First off let me say I wasn't quite sure where to post this. I'm using 2 scripts to give the characters both extra frames of animation and turn in 8 directions. But it's the sprites I need help with. I thought I followed both to the letter however when I boot up the game the sprites are cropped, missing half of the sprite. I can't fix this, so I'm asking for help. The scripts I'm using are this one and this one over here. Instructions how they work are written in the scripts so no need to explain here. The sprites I'm using are at the bottom. Are they too big for these scripts? Too close together? Thanks for any help you can give. ^^ P.S Those sprites are for test purposes only right now.

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    @roninator2 Thank you for the script. ^^ Now it runs perfectly...except for this. And sorry for being really slow in replying. Life has been very busy..

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    Yes, the script is I have the event to zoom in on MAP001. It zooms in and turns on the overlay scripts' switches. Sorry for the late reply. Been a long day.

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    @ Both Is there a way to make the screen smaller/zoom in without zooming it in through an event? If not I suppose this test is officially over. I know what scripts to use to get this working on both Makers, the camera being zoomed so far out is the last thing. I appreciate the help thus far. ^^

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    @Kayzee So what can I do then? Find a way to make the tile sets bigger or wait til I can afford MV which can handle this ISO view better? @roninator2 I assume the same for XP then. Both RPG Makers ran well on my older laptop until it went and took 3 hours to turn on. I'll see about upgrading the CPU or a newer system.

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    @Kayzee Thanks again for the help. It works well but I get the issue of extreme lag when zooming the camera in. I hopped over to XP for a spell and got everything to work over there, but when zooming in I still get lag, but less of it when booting up the exe and not the editor. So it's either my system or I need to adjust something in the editor. So for the VX Ace version of this project, any ideas how to fix the lag? I wanted to make the screen focus more on the player without resizing the sprites and tiles to be larger, as I can't. Here's the info of my laptop to give you an idea of how it runs.

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    Think you could help me with that overlay script too? I need to get the overlay not to be black, yet the tutorial I was following never got that far. It's the last thing I need to figure out. Hope I'm not breaking a rule by asking this here.

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    Well didn't they say that? It works now. I just need Mega to return to his idle frame when stopping. Thank you for your help so far, I appreciate it. ^^
  21. Darkness Void

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    I'm still having trouble with these frames. When I move downward Mega disappears until he stops or moves in another direction. I'll link what I have so far so you can look and see what I got wrong. I have the patch but I'm not sure which script to place it in (the extra frames script gave an error when pasted there). Keep in mind this only a testing project, not for an actual game. Yet at any rate.
  22. Darkness Void

    Need Help Sprites Are Cropped In Half

    @Kayzee That certainty fixed that problem, thank you. ^^ And now I can see that the 8 direction script isn't working as the wrong frames are shown when moving at an angle. I'll fix that next now that I can see it. Let me ask. I got the game to show the idle frame when set to index 2, so I assume the index staring at the far left is 0, 1, 2 and so on?
  23. Hello reader. I've finally got back into RPG Maker and I feel a bit dumb for asking this. I bought and started using a custom tileset, this one. And I will show screenshots but here's the reason for this post. I made a cliff that I wanted the player to ascend via either a rope or a set of vines. But when I add the vines, rope, and even a ladder, they just replace the part of the cliff instead of going over it. I even went and made the vines an event, but the player stops dead at the cliff. I ended up just using the stairs tile but I wanted to ask for future reference why were the vines, ladder and rope replacing the cliff tiles and how should I go about fixing it. I believe it's something to do with how I added the tiles in the database, but I'm not entirely sure. Is it something to do with the A, B, C and D tabs? P.S sorry if this is in the wrong place, I haven't been here in a long time. ^^;
  24. OK first let me say that "animated enemies" is not what I am asking. Even tho 100% of searching gave me that.. I want to know how to have my customly made enemy, who has a still battle, to use the animation numbered 21, titled "Blow Ice" from the editor? From what I can see, those are player only attacks?
  25. Simply, the topic. This looks interesting, but there's no info on how to do it.
