I've looked over the overlays but they can't be accessed directly. I have checked out using an image but they are only for visual and I have considered just spawning a new icon obj on the screen and animating it but anytime I use the new command and referring a location it goes directly to a tile and doesn't take in account that I have an offset. Is there a better way to do this? Or a way to mimic the tile offset so I can get this thing to look like it attacks from the character?
