RPG Maker MV Tutorial: Parallax Mapping (BindPicturesToMap Plugin)

  • Published on Oct 27, 2015
  • This is a tutorial of one way to do Parallax Mapping (Basically, mapping with a program that isn't the game maker)using the TDDP BindPicturesToMap Plugin.
    I goof a couple times, but I think I get my point across.
    YOU CAN ALSO use YEP_RegionRestrictions to block off areas!

    More MV videos coming soon! Feel free to comment requests!

    This is a good tutorial. I'm using this 6 years later and it has really allowed me to spice up my maps. Especially with Ibis Paint. So, thanks.

    Beautiful. Quickest and best parallax mapping tutorial I've ever seen. And it didn't just teach me how to use a plugin.

    Thank you for this tutorial. Ugh, I was having so much trouble with this but you really helped me out. By any chance where do you set your directional arrows? Also I love you voice it's oddly calming to listen to.

    Probably the best tutorial voice over I've heard in the last few years. Really pleasant to listen to and not too fast that it's super hard to follow. However you may want to include links to the plugins you mention. Granted people will eventually find them on their own but it's better if you include a link.

    I'm programming a rpg game in AS3 and this was usefull to understand how to use a map with a background instead of tiles.

    Hi, first off thanks a lot for your videos they’ve been really useful but I’m having a problem with parallaxing that I can’t seem to solve. When I bind pictures to map they seem to bind to every other map and won’t let me change it. I’ve followed through this video and that all works well but then when I event a transfer the arrival map has the same parallax despite being given different pngs. Any chance you’ve encountered this? As I’ve not found it online

    Hey Echo thanks for the video. I'm new to the rpg maker mv world. I was just wondering if you had a step by step typed out or on pdf format so I could print it out while I'm working in photoshop. Thank you.
