#  Galv's Animated Battlers
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  For: RPGMAKER VX ACE
#  Version 1.3
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  2014-06-20 - Version 1.3 - added ability to change actor battle x,y positions
#  2014-01-17 - Version 1.2 - compatibility fix when using with Actor Duel Game
#  2013-05-06 - Version 1.1 - added move speed for melee attacks
#  2013-05-04 - Version 1.0 - release
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  Holder's animated battler spritesheets can be found here:
#  http://animatedbattlers.wordpress.com/
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  This is just another animated battler script that uses holder-style animated
#  battler sheets. There are better ones out there, this one is just my basic
#  implementation in an attempt to continue improving my scripting.
#
#  This script works in the default battle system but is optimised for use with
#  Yanfly's battle script. Not tested with other battle scripts. Put this script
#  below any battle scripts you try it with.
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  Note tag for ENEMIES and ACTORS
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#
#  <battler: filename>    # filename is the animated spritesheet located in
#                         # /Graphics/Battlers/
#                         # Required for actors, optional for enemies.
#
#  <stationary_sub>       # will not re-position themselves in front of an ally
#                         # they are covering/substituting for.
#
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  Note tags for SKILLS, ITEMS and STATES
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#
#  <pose: x>    # The skill, item or state will use x pose row.
#               # If a skill does not have this tag, it will use row 6.
#               # If an item does not have this tag, it will use row 5.
#               # If a state does not have this tag, it will use row 2. If a
#               # battler has multiple states, it uses the highest priority.
#
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#  Note tag for SKILLS, ITEMS and ACTORS
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------#
#
#  <melee: x>  # Normal attacks for Actors, items being used or skills being
#              # used that have this tag will make the actor dash into close
#              # range before doing the action. x is the dash speed.
#              # 0 = instant.  1 is slow, higher numbers is faster

  1. How do the work is it possible to a combo with multiple skills?

  2. zerphoon says:

    Hey sorry again didnt have internet last time I was on your script pages was using my phone, my question is, is this script compatible with your Actor Duel Mini Game?

  3. zerphoon says:

    It’s okay just noticed figured I’d point it out for you :)

  4. izarckjitter says:

    simply amazing!
    is there’s a way for it to work with yanfly’s party sistem?
    (i mean adding extra characters to battle.)
    Link is here:
    https://yanflychannel.wordpress.com/rmvxa/core-scripts/party-system/

  5. Wind says:

    I’m sorry for barging in. I know you are a bit busy lately, but is there any way to change the enemy sprite using script call just like what we can do with the actors?
    Even a non-simplified like @game_actors[x].animated_battler = “name” or @game_party.members[x].animated_battler = “name” will do. I’ve been trying with @game_enemy and @game_troop.members, but it seems I need to write interpreter for that first. I cannot really understand what should I type inside the bracket. Is it only id like with actors, or its’ index within the troop AND the enemy id, or should it be @enemy_index[y], or something else.. I’m at loss here.
    Enlighten me, please?

    • Galv says:

      That’s not set up in the script. If you need a different sprite for enemies, you could use a different enemy :)

      • Wind says:

        Why of course there is a way to get around that without any scripting..

        I ended up placing a different enemy right under the one I want to ‘transform’ from and hide it away. When I wish the enemy to transform into that hidden enemy, I just have the hidden one appear, then kill the previous one (i did have the dead pose column and some other column empty, so I can make as if it disappear). And other itty-bitty eventing so it goes a little smoother and make it as though the damages we have dish out on it remained there…

        …or just let it as it is if I feel like I’m cruel enough to do it. It’s just that the collapse sound effect still bugging me.. But then again, I guess I can still manage things out.

        Good things when the sprite used is the same one (albeit with different hue applied from enemy picture hue slider) the event command transform enemy still works.

        Honestly I’m just wondering whether there is a way to simplify this workaround, but then, since there isn’t, I’ll just leave my workaround here in case anyone needs to do the same.

        Well, at least the way you code this script is quite easy to understand even for me who have only little knowledge of scripting. I did find out that pose for the traveling toward the enemy does not repeat, so if the pose actually have the sprite walking (not jump dashing), if the melee speed is low enough, the sprite would just steps until the last frame of the pose then slide all the way to the target while remain in the last frame (imagine a huge and pretty slugish bear slides to you slowly after taking two strides ;D). I fixed this by copy pasting line @freeze_pose = false unless GALV_BAT::ONE_ANIM.include?(@pose) to def perform_travel after the do_pose.

        Also, for my project, I did change few lines, mostly on the @effect_duration because I want the enemy perform some of their poses faster than the actors. I hope you don’t mind that.

        Whew, sorry if it is a bit lengthy on my part.

      • Galv says:

        Not at all, modify it to suit your project is all good :)

  6. Emanuele says:

    Galv, it seems i cannot change actors positions, not even script call is working. Wonder why?

    • Emanuele says:

      Nevermind, i seem to have solved the issue myself.
      It seems the script suffer a ‘slow processing’. I could change battler X and Y only modifying 1 value at time, because otherwise the script didn’t apply the changes and when i closed RMVXA and opened it again the values were resetted. So after making 8 different modifies, i could get the changes

  7. blazearx says:

    How do i change the character sprite in battle ? I am new to it and the script is working but …. i dont know cuz i have a sprite sheet for animaated battlers so i wanna know…..

  8. MAHTUKOP says:

    Can I use it in a commercial project?

  9. Red says:

    Hey! I’m having a few issues here:
    1) Actors are shown on the right and vertically, while the enemies are shown at the bottom and horizontally. How could I make the enemies show on the left, vertically, directly opposite to the actors?
    2) My idea is to use the script to show the battle from the side, with animation, but I only want the idle animation to work (attacks, evades, etc, disable them and always show the idle pose). I’ve tried with the notetag in any skill, and it seems to keep ‘dashing’ to the target, as the sprite disappears when I attack. I’d like the battlers to behave like regular RMVX (still image, but an animated one). Is it possible?

    Thank you! I’m very new to this.

    • Galv says:

      1) you need to move your enemy positions in the “troop” tab of your database. Move them to the left.

      2) Not sure what you mean by disabling attacks, evades, etc. but that isn’t an option in the script

      • Red says:

        1) Thanks! Figured it out, although I’m gonna try and find an “accurate” way of positioning them (like what your script does with actors, giving the X/Y position), at least for the vertical location, to match them exactly with the actors.

        2) What I mean is that apparently, the script is designed to use a different pose for every action (idle, attack, evade, use skills, etc). I only use idle animated sprites, so I’d like to disable every other pose/animation, and always play the idle one. If it’s not coded in the script, could you give me some insight on where to look in the script to add it?

        Thanks for the reply! :)

  10. Galv says:

    unfortunately it’d take a lot of changing the script to do what you want it to. It wasn’t designed to do that :)

  11. Shane says:

    Hi Galv,

    I get this error everytime the actor encounters an enemy.

    Script ‘Galvs Animated Battlers’ line 397: NoMethodError occured.
    undefined method ‘[]’ for nil:NilClass

    The script runs fine when I do a battle test in the database of the editor.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Shane

  12. Je says:

    Hi galv, I just have a question… I don’t know if this is a dumb question or not but please bear with me… actually when I paste your script to my script editor, then pressed the green play button. this popped up. (line 1672: No methoderror occurred. undefined method [] for nil: Nilclass.) I’m sorry but I just dont understand scripting at all.. sorry and thanks..

    • Galv says:

      This script only has 995 lines. Your error is referencing a script that has over 1672 lines. Run through this checklist to try to solve the problem: https://galvs-scripts.com/errors-using-scripts/

      • Je says:

        hi thanks for the quick reply and btw the reason I can’t start my game was because I accidentally didn’t copy the whole script but now, I was able to open the game, but right now i run to another problem when I try to enter a battle this popped up (line 743 nomethoderror occured undefined method width for nil: nilclass. I tried to place = 4 to end of the line in 743 but what happened was it showed me a syntax error so of course I removed it again,, and of course I tried this for new game and load game. sorry just don’t know what i’m doing here.

      • Galv says:

        Make sure your actors have notetag to specify their animated battler file.

        # filename is the animated spritesheet located in /Graphics/Battlers/
        Required for actors, optional for enemies.

  13. Brandon says:

    Hey, great script! I like this one way better than the other animated battler scripts I have found so I want to keep using it in my projects.
    I have just one problem and one request I would like to make of you.
    My problem is that I am using custom battle sprites, to be specific, Pioneer Valley Games sprite sheets. They are larger then standard RPG Maker VX Ace sprites. They are all unique frames to display every status and command and function perfectly with your script, as long as I don’t want to change anything. What I am running into, is that certain boss battle scenes I am creating require enemy transformations. While this is a standard feature in the Ace battle events, I cannot get them to change physical appearance in battle. The enemy will take on the skill/attack characteristics of the transformation but will not change sprites. The sprites are all there in my battlers database and work fine in their own troops. I am doing the transformation correctly because I can get it to work when I am not using custom sprites. Is there any tweaks or changes I can make to the script to accommodate the custom sprites?
    Lastly, my request. Since you are an awesome scripter, and I have checked all the forums for months. Even had direct conversations with the authors of other scripts I am using, I cannot seem to get an resolution to this. Other authors tell me it’s “Galv’s fault”. Whatever…. I need an add-on to your animated battler’s script that would allow summoning abilities. Either to replace the user or the party, and let me designate the location of the summoned sprite if it is to replace the party or just simply replace the user if it only going to replace the user.
    I have tried all the other summoning scripts I can find out there, but they just don’t want to play well with any other animated battler script then Holder’s (yuck), and your script is way better then Holder’s. I really want to use your script, can you please make an add-on or summoning script that will work with your animated battler script?
    I am using Yanfly’s (Ace) battle engine, Victor’s Engine, Yanfly (Ace) Core, Galv’s Animated Battlers for my battle scene manager. None of there conflict, I have no issues or error messages running the game with all these together.

    • Galv says:

      Replacing sprites in a battle is an issue with my battle script currently. I will need to address it but I don’t have time to look into it any time soon, unfortunately :(

      • Brandon says:

        Thank you for replying so quickly. I will not be done with this epic game for several months. If you get time to look into it and come up with a fix, let me know please. If you want a copy of this game when I am done, it’s yours. I am naming you in the credits, and is there any specific way you want your name to appear other than Galv? If so, just let me know.

  14. Derek says:

    Hi Galv, this is a very useful script and I really want to use it. However after couple of test plays I ran into a problem is that the Actor sometime lose turn because the player (me ^_^) accidentally hit the right button on the keyboard during battle.

    The default battle system doesn’t have this problem because if you hit the right or left button on the keyboard during battle, it doesn’t do anything.

    Is there anyway to disable the left and right button on Actor selection during battle?

    • Galv says:

      That sounds like functionality of Yanfy’s battle script and not this animated battlers script

      • Derek says:

        Hi, thanks for your quick reply. Yes, but since this script depends on the core Yanfly script so I have been Googling a lot trying to solve this problem. Here is what I did and looks like it works. I fixed it by going on line 1725+ and editing this method:

        “def process_handling
        return unless open? && active
        return process_dir4 if Input.repeat?(:LEFT)
        return process_dir6 if Input.repeat?(:RIGHT)
        return super
        end”

        Basically I just put the “#” in front of the “return process_dir4 if Input.repeat?(:LEFT)” and “return process_dir6 if Input.repeat?(:RIGHT)”.

        I wish to know 2 thing: 1. Can this script works without the Yanfly core script? I have tested and take out the Yanfly script from the Demo, everything seem to work fine until the enemy dies then the graphic moving kind of happens too fast.

        2. Is the way I did above the correct way to do it?

      • Galv says:

        The script should work without yanfly’s combat, I dont know what you mean by dying too fast. And yes, what you did sounds like it would be a good solution

  15. Derek says:

    What I meant is that when I run the battle without the Yanfly script, when the opponent die, it seem like its graphic cut right away to the “body lying on the ground” graphic. Where if I run the battle with Yanfly script, the animation seem to be a bit 0slower and look more natural and realistic. I was using PV Games’ Holder styles batlers…. Can I ask if Yanfly script is not necessary, then what is the benefit of the Yanfly script in the Demo in your estimation?

  16. Chi says:

    Hello Galv. Great script, I installed it just fine and got the sprite sheets/actors and enemies set up, but when I run into battle, this happens I get an error from
    line 743: @cw = bitmap.width / GALV_BAT::COLS

    I’m new to scripting and rpg maker in general :b so I should have gotten more experience first, I know, but I really want to use a side-view battle system with animated battlers.

  17. Impossible says:

    The script is great and is very simple and easy. The only thing I have a problem is that the animations are a little transparent. Is that something that can be easily changed or ?

    • Galv says:

      This script doesn’t change animation transparency. Are you talking about skill animations? They all use a blend mode by default, you’ll need to edit that in the database > animations tab.

  18. Emmet says:

    Hey, is there any way to change the framerate on the animations? It’s a little too fast for my taste.
    Thanks for the script though!

  19. pianotm says:

    How can my make my characters dash forward when attacking? It seems to me I was able to do that before, but now I can’t see how it’s done.

    • Galv says:

      #——————————————————————————#
      # Note tag for SKILLS, ITEMS and ACTORS
      #——————————————————————————#
      #
      # <melee: x>
      #
      # # Normal attacks for Actors, items being used or skills being
      # # used that have this tag will make the actor dash into close
      # # range before doing the action. x is the dash speed.
      # # 0 = instant. 1 is slow, higher numbers is faster

      • pianotm says:

        Okay. Thank you. I missed that because I remember a somewhat more involved notetag procedure. It must have been a different script.

      • pianotm says:

        I have another issue. I know nothing about scripting, obviously, and I wanted to make sure I couldn’t fix this problem myself. I could still be missing something, but anyway, I can only assume that this line:

        ONE_ANIM = [3,4,5,6,7,11,12] # Poses that will NOT keep repeating their frames

        is not working. This wouldn’t be a problem except that for enemies, who I do not have falling on the ground, but fading away, keep replaying the death animation.

      • Galv says:

        Hmmm, I will add to my to-do list to look into this but not sure when I will be able to check it out. Sounds like it could be a bug

  20. Fan says:

    Ah, I hope I’m not double-posting. It seems my comment didn’t get through, so I’m just posting this just to be sure.

    Hi there, and first of all, what I’ve seen of your work is simply amazing. I’m excited to try this out for myself, but when I put in the script, unfortunately I got this when I entered a battle…

    Script ‘Galv’s Animated Battler v1.2’ line 770: NoMethodError occurred.
    undefined method ‘*’ for :left:Symbol

    Yes, I did start a new game, yes, I have put it in the correct position in the script editor and yes, I have all the required files. I also tried making a new, clean project and try it out but somehow I got the same error. I do have Yanfly Core Engine and Battle Symphony installed but not the battler pets.
    I’m guessing it has something to do with the sprite but I have no idea what.
    I am using VX ace, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

    Supposedly I just have to put in the scripts, edit them if needed, set the sprite sheet for each character and voila?

    Thank you for still helping us n00bs with our problems xD My apologies.
    Keep up the great work!
    -Fan that thinks he’s double posting. (And probably is)

    • Galv says:

      Doesn’t battle symphony do side view battlers? If so you cannot use it with this script as they do the same thing and will conflict.

      • Fan says:

        Ah, so that’s the problem. I feel embarrassed for not realizing.
        So it is not possible to have Battle Symphony along with your Animated Battlers? That’s a shame… I really wanted to use the symphony tags.

        Oh well. I’ll just have to weigh the pros and cons of the two.
        Thanks for replying so soon!

  21. Pls Help me :(
    Does this script work on it’s own or do I need another script?
    Why does this keep bothering me about line 743?
    Why won’t it work? D:

    Hi, I’m using this script alone, and the battlers do not move even though the melee is set to 6 in the note area. How can I fix this?

      Double check that you have done everything correctly. Study the demo and how it was done.

      Also here’s an error trapping checklist:

        Thanks!

        I have two more question, the first one is that the enemies sometimes disappear upon death and sometimes play the animation. I have no idea what’s causing this.
        Also, is there a way to make the battlers walk back without fading, like they do when walking forward?

      • Galv says:

        No, the plugin was coded to fade when going back.

        Unfortunately for the enemies disappearing thing I don’t know what’s causing it either. You’ll need to put your error-trapping hat on and do many tests to try and work it out :)

        I know, but is there a way to remove that? I also noticed it makes the battler sprite permanently translucent after button mashing the space bar.

        I do not know what is wrong and do not have time to error trap your project for you or modify the plugin. You will have to error trap your own project.

    Nice plug and play script ! but i was wondering if its possible to lock a pose for a certain period or turns in battle.

    I’m making a skill that “jump” on the current turn and then gain a state called “aerial” ( i made a clear row, for it will appear as if shes disappeared when in this state) which raise her evasion stat by 100% then, perform an attack on the next turn. The problem is every time she evade an attack while in “aerial” state, she does the evade pose. So i was hoping to be able to lock her pose until shes not in “aerial” state anymore.

    Thank you for your amazing scripts btw :D

      Unfortunately you can’t do that with this script, sorry. This is a very basic battle system, I recommend checking out one of the more advanced ones to do stuff like that :)
