    great plugin, thanks~
    I wonder if it is possible to expand a little bit by scaling the shadow with the sprite size?

    • Galv says:

      That’s a good idea, I will look into it later when I have some free time at some point

      • doranikofu says:

        I also noticed an issue. If I put in an event on the map with blank char image, and later I use set movement route to assign a char image to the event, this event won’t show any shadow. So it looks like the script only checks the conditions for shadow upon creating the event?

      • Galv says:

        Upon creating an event and event page changes, yeah – to try to keep processing requirements to a minimum. Instead of assigning a character to an empty sprite, try changing to page to one with a character on it and the shadow tag on the page

    thanks. It looks like the only way to get this work is to use comment tag. The note tag in the event won’t work if the 1st page is empty.

    Updated to version 1.1 – crash that happens when turning event shadows off before transferring fixed

    When I enter a vehicle, the shadows keeps showing, how can I disable shadown when I enter a vehicle?

    Would it be possible to specify the location of the shadow under a specific event? I am making a bird that walks and has a normal shadow but it switches its image so it can fly and i need the shadow about 50 under him. Thanks, great plugin by the way.

  8. hi.
    im not sure that i can expalain my problem well.

    before,i wanna thank you for making such a great plagin.i use it everytime.

    anyway my problem is that i cant see the shadow if character appearance is ON.

    im afraid that i want you to try to cover this problem.

    Thanks for your good plug in.
    It’s even better that my characters have shadows!

    I’m not sure if this plugin still has support, however I noticed an issue when using shadows on events that only appear after a variable is changed. In this scenario, the shadow is not applied.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Set up an event with a shadow with a condition (i’m using a variable becoming 1)
    2. Create a scene where the map is loaded before the event condition is met and then the condition changes to be met
    3. Load the scene and watch said event
