RPG Maker MV Parallax Mapping for Beginners - Part 1

  • Published on Oct 30, 2015
  • Part 1 of my Parallax mapping series, for RPG Maker MV. Skip ahead to 3:20 to get started~ Part 2 is here: thexvid.com/video/qwK3DuhhVS0/video.html

    If your map is too big for print screen, you'll need to make multiple screenshots and make sure to align them correctly within your blank canvas. Another way to do this is to make your "skeleton" map in a program called TileD instead of directly within MV's editor.

    I'm so glad this tutorial is helping people still!! This video super outdated but some concepts (especially in PART 2) are still relevant! I now livestream with a virtual avatar on Twitch, so I hope you can check me out from time to time :) I'll be playing all sorts of games - including RPG Maker sometimes! Twitch.tv/LoriVT or go to loreplays.games :D

  • Belias • Digimon Channel

    hey, first of all, thanks for your great tutorial, i think this will help me alot with what i have planned to do! but i have a question: in another tutorial from someone else, it was adviced to use the same plugin you use for top and lower layer parallax mapping, so the character might walk beneath some objects.

    i created my own map in photoshop and tried it in RPGMV, when i started the game, sadly i got an error saying my map was too big: its 100 x 100 tiles big, so maybe i went a bit overboard with it. what is the max height and length of a parallax map that works with the said plugins? thanks in advance!

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  6 years ago

      It's true that a larger map might cause some lag, but I think 100x100 isn't *too* large here. I make smaller maps because I don't like having lots of wasted space, but it certainly depends on the type of map =D if it's a huge forest or maze, then 100x100 is fine~ Right now in the game I'm making, the biggest size is 40x45 so far haha but it feels kinda cramped

    • Belias • Digimon Channel
      Belias • Digimon Channel 6 years ago +1

      i'll try to contact the dev. so are you developing a game with rpg maker? which size of maps do you usually go with? i heard that if your map is too big, it might lag because of all the NPCs walking and stuff going on.

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  6 years ago

      +Belias I'm actually not sure what the max size of the plugin supports! 256x256 is the max for MV, so it's weird that it doesn't allow 100x100. Huh. You could always contact the BindPicturesToMap developer, or try another overlay plugin, such as Kaus?

  • DJ

    Near the beginning, you added a message about changing the resolution through scripts. How do you determine the size of the map? I guess a better way to ask this is, how big is each tile in pixels?

    I’m using 1920-1080 screen resolution in game.

  • Neil S
    Neil S 5 years ago

    I haven't finished the tutorial yet, but I had to comment just because you blew my mind with the "Photoshop can overlay a 48px grid". I've been using a template I made, copy-pasted into every tileset I've edited. I'll still need templated for the auto-tile pages, but still this is gonna be really useful haha. Looking forward to the rest of the tutorial.

    KefkeWren 5 years ago +15

    My only real complaint is that you didn't explain at the beginning exactly what "parallax mapping" _is_. I think I figured it out as you were explaining the how, but I still don't really _know_ know. Other than that, though, I found this really easy to follow, and it wasted a lot less time on things that are self-explanatory than many tutorials do.

    Just tried the grid feature on photoshop and for some reason when I do 48 pixals it gives me very tiny boxes. However, if I put 48 inches it shows the correct format like in your video.

    • Ace
      Ace 6 years ago

      @Fallen Lorelei haha I Made a dumb mistake lol. I figured it out. For some reason it started on inches for width/height, and I forgot to change that to pixals. Also the res was 300 for some reason. I guess that also prevented for me from dragging and dropping any titles probably bc they were different sizes? Either way thank you for the help.

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  6 years ago

      I'm also using CC from Creative Cloud, so at least we're using the same version! You can check your resolution by going to Edit Image Size, or just go ahead and make a new canvas - making sure "72" is under Resolution (which is under width and height).

      Are you using the "move" tool to move the icons between the two windows? Sometimes I'm not paying attention and try to move it with the marquee tool still selected. If that's not it, then I'm not sure. Maybe you'll need to copy/paste until you figure it out D:

      Sorry! It's hard to tell the problem without messing around with it myself. I typically troubleshoot through trial and error lol

    • Ace
      Ace 6 years ago

      @Fallen Lorelei Not exactly sure I will check everything and see if i can figure out the problem. It has been a very long time since I used photoshop and I just installed the new photoshop CC so im not as familiar with it.

      Another issue I have is i can't seem to drag and drop any titles/images into a new one like you did with the grass and stuff. It lets me move them but then doesn't appear on the other side. It just makes a new transparent layer.

      This is a brand new install from creative cloud and like I said it's been a long time since I used photoshop so this is all unfamiliar to me atm.

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  6 years ago

      +trips487 That's very odd. Check your canvas's resolution, maybe. Mine is at 72. Is your canvas's dimensions set in pixels as well? It sounds like your canvas is massive which may be the result of 300 dpi resolution or accidentally using inches instead of pixels when putting in the original dimensions.

      It may also be that sometimes Photoshop puts in little mini-grids inside regular grids. I'm not on my home computer so I can't check what that setting may be. If the resolution is at 72, Plan B could be going to View -> Extras and unchecking everything except for Grid. *chinstroke*

      Ninja Edit: It also sounds like you might be using Pixel Grid instead of regular Grid?

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  6 years ago +1

      +Outer Heaven Until someone makes a "map saver" plugin, right now what you'll need to do is make multiple screenshots of the map and try your best to align them correctly. If you have the right canvas size already open, you can paste in the "top" half of the map - aligning it to the corners - and then paste the "bottom" half, aligning it to the bottom corners. That should work :D

    • Lorelei [VTuber]
      Lorelei [VTuber]  5 years ago

      Hmm maybe the map isn't 1:1 when you export it? So the Grid *seems* too big / too small? I recommend looking at part 3.5 to use Orange Mapshot also, instead of taking a screenshot (this tutorial is a bit old, haha)

    my snipping tool saves it smaller then the multiplied canvas?!

    Edit: Okay so for anyone who is having scaling issues it has to do witht he scale your map is saved as. In MV if you click on the "Scale" button you have to click actual size and it wisll set it to the correct scale then proceed to save the map!

    If the map is bigger then your screen hook your laptop/pc to a bigger monitor/tv and it will do the trick! Hope this helps!

    I really do not understand. I have never used photoshop, but i am trying it out now in order to follow your guide and get accustomed to this method...i am having all sorts of problems.

    For one thing "copy-pasting" is not really a simple matter in photoshop, if you are not used to it, i had to watch a bunch of tutorials and read some other stuff just in order to understand why a new layer was made each time i tried to paste something...hehe, anyway, i got through that, so now i know how to copy and paste using photoshop, but it is NOT simple still.
    i still can't just ctrl+c-ctrl+v. i have to click on a bunch of other thing, otherwise i get these obscure error messages...ok, maby not so obscure once you are used to it, but for a beginner. COMPLEX!

    anyway, i am trying to paste the image of my skeleton-map. the simple thing i did in RPGmaker and now want to import into photoshop in order to make it pretty. however, when i paste the image of my map i can no longer see the 48 pixl grid that i made in order to be able to see where my character can walk. now there is this super-complex grid that fills the entire picture and makes it impossible for me to see where anything is...so, i am at a loss again.

    why do these extra grid's appear and obstruct my view of the photo? i am unable to follow along with your tutorial now...

    god i'm such a photoshop noob...i feel really dumb.

    Don't know about anybody else but I had to multiply using 32. 48 was too big.

      Which RPGmaker are you using? If it's MV then 48 SHOULD be right. Some of the other ones use 32 though.

    what are your PC specs? I'm wondering if my i7 6700 and 32GB corsair vengeance DDR4 ram will be able to record in HD with 60FPS. I hope that doesn't sound like a stupid question...

    Honestly, the only thing keeping me from getting Photoshop is the fact that it's "subscription only."
