Extra Movement Frames
Version: 1.0.1
Author: modern algebra
Date: 26 September 2012

Version History


  • <Version 1.0.1> 2012.09.26 - Made a minor change to the code to improve general compatibility
  • <Version 1.0.0> 2012.09.25 - Original Release

Description


This script allows you to import character sprites with more than 3 frames for movement animation. In other words, it allows you to animate sprites a little more smoothly. One use for it is it allows RMXP format characters to be imported directly into a VXA game without editing (although you will need to rename the file).

Features

  • Unlimited number of frames on a sprite to sprite basis
  • Easy to set a custom idle frame and pattern
  • Useful for larger sprites and for smoother animation
  • Fairly easy to use.

Screenshots


Sample with an XP character named "$003-Fighter03%(4)"

Instructions

Paste the script into its own slot in the Script Editor, above Main but below Materials. If you are using my Composite Graphics script, then this script must be placed in a slot below Composite Graphics.

To create a sprite with extra movement frames, all you need to do is rename the character graphic to something of the form:

      Regular_Name%(n)
        where:
          n is the number of frames in each character sprite
 
  EXAMPLES:

  • $001-Fighter01%(4)
    This graphic is a single character with four frames of animation. [XP]
  • 022-Actors12%(6)
    This graphic would be interpreted as a character sheet of 8 characters, each having six frames of animation.

For details on how to set idle frames or custom patterns, see the header of the script. Also, square brackets also work, ie. %[n].

#
#    To create a sprite with extra movement frames, all you need to do is
#   rename the character graphic to something of the form:
#
#      Regular_Name%(x)
#        where:
#          x is the number of frames in each character sprite

#    022-Actors12%(6)
#      This graphic would be interpreted as a character sheet of 8 characters,
#      each having six frames of animation.
#~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#    Additionally, this script also allows you to specify the "idle" frame (the
#   frame where the sprite is not moving), and also the pattern if wish to so
#   specify. In essence, all you need to do is add those integers after the
#   number of frames:
#
#      Regular_Name%(x y1 y2 y3 ... yx)
#        where:
#          x is the number of frames in each character sprite
#          y1 is the idle frame (the frame shown when sprite is not moving)
#          y2 ... yx are the pattern.
#
#   Keep in mind that the first frame in a sprite is index 0, the second frame
#   is index 1, etc.
#
#    Where y1 is excluded, it is assumed to be 0. Where y2 ... yx are excluded,
#   the pattern is assumed to simply cycle through the frames one by one until
#   it repeats.
#
#  EXAMPLES:
#
#    $003-Fighter03%(4 2)
#      This graphic is a single character with four frames of animation. The
#      idle frame is 2 (the third one over). The pattern when moving would be
#      2 3 0 1, 2 3 0 1, etc.
#    032-People05%(4 0 1 0 3 2 1)
#      This graphic would be interpreted as a character sheet of 8 characters,
#      each having four frames of animation. The idle frame is 0 (the first
#      in the sheet), and the pattern is 0 1 0 3 2 1, 0 1 0 3 2 1, etc.

Known Compatibility Issues

If you are using this script with my Composite Graphics script, then you will need to paste this script below it in the Script Editor. Additionally, you will need to ensure that all composite graphics pasted into a character have the same number of frames. So long as those two conditions are met, however, this script is compatible with Composite Graphics.

Author's Notes


I've never really been fond of this script's design, but I lack the ingenuity to fix it :(. Anyway, this was the first script I wrote for RMVX, and I hope it is useful for some of you.

Terms of Use


I adopt RMRK's default Terms of Use.

An old classic! Pretty impressive that this was the first script you decided to tackle during the experimental VX stage.

If you don't mind me asking, what exactly about this script don't you like?

I just feel like I should be able to do it better. I can't find any rational way around overwriting several significant methods, which makes compatibility with other sprite-changing scripts annoying, to say the least. Further, this script doesn't accomodate for any script which changes the value of @character_name in a non-traditional method or way. I could have fixed that by putting something in an update method observing changes, but that felt ugly, so I made the Proc-creating class method for easy compatibility patching. Even for that, though I feel like I was being lazy. The naming convention is also kind of non-intuitive, which I feel might dissuade people from using the script.

Anyway, it's just one of those scripts where I intuitively sense a significant discrepancy between my coding and the best possible coding (all my scripts have some discrepancy, naturally), and I'm not good enough to see where I'm going wrong. And I find that frustrating.

Is there a way to do an animation by selecting different framenumbers somehow?

For example the original animation goes like: 0,1,2,3,4,5
And I want to do an animation like this: 0,1,2,4,3,5
Or just a stopped frame: 4 (but the normal animation wouldn't start on frame 4)

I really just want to be able to select a particular frame in the animation via a script snippet.

So is there a way to do this?

Sorry for my explanation if it was "confusing".

Is it possible not to include the idle frame for the walking sequenze ?

Example:
Test06%(4 0 1 2 3)
The idle frame is 0, and the pattern is 1 2 3, 1 2 3 etc.

I know this is an quite old post but it would be great to get an replay, i was looking for such a script for days now and this is the one i got to work for being so damn easy to use ^_^
So i appreciate any help i could get

No, sorry, not as the script is currently structured.

It would likely not be hard to change that, but I am afraid I don't have much time for scripting these days. Sorry. If you can find someone else to do it though, then that person has my permission to modify and republish my script.

Can you help me what to do next after copy and paste this script above main and under material in Editor Script of RPG ACE VX ?

Now i have a spritesheet include 4 frames and 4 directions, after import it to rpg maker ace vx, it only detect 3 frames.

In case it only affect 4 frames in game by this script , how do i calculate exactly what size per cell (width x height) and max size of the bitmap is imported ?

The script won't affect how resources are used.

Your sprite is named
Code: [Select]
$walk 1
When it should be named
Code: [Select]
$walk%(4)

The instructions go into better detail about the naming process.
Code: [Select]
#  Instructions:
#   
#    Paste this script into its own slot in the Script Editor, above Main but
#   below Materials. If you are using my Composite Graphics script, then this
#   script must be placed in a slot below Composite Graphics.
#
#    To create a sprite with extra movement frames, all you need to do is
#   rename the character graphic to something of the form:
#
#      Regular_Name%(x)
#        where:
#          x is the number of frames in each character sprite

#  EXAMPLES:
#
#    $001-Fighter01%(4)
#      This graphic is a single character with four frames of animation. [XP]
#    022-Actors12%(6)
#      This graphic would be interpreted as a character sheet of 8 characters,
#      each having six frames of animation.

Thanks you , but after i put it name similar to the guide, i wonder what size per cell which has 1 sprite action.

I have import a image 512x512 to database, and after rename, put the script in, i still don't know how this script work , i mean, i need to know : after import a spritesheet size 512x512 into database, i need character do 4 actions but i don't know it how it calculator size per cell,if i know, so i can repaint my spritesheet character action

Not sure what's wrong.
I plugged in the script, and imported the sprite and it works fine.


Are you using rpg maker VX or rpg maker VX ACE?
Are you importing it and not just dropping it into the folder?
