    RMMZ Thoughts on my combat mechanics ideas?

    Hi folks! I'm a freshly-minted noob re: making video games, I just downloaded RPG Maker last week. I come from a background of board game design and development, though, and am making a small demo-project right now to (1) get my feet wet and learn how to use the platforms and release something...

    Tactical Combat vs Row System

    I have stumbled into a crossroads while designing my project. Originally I was thinking on going with a row system for combat, but after a while I started messing around with the idea of going with a tactical combat system. Now that I have my project's design more outlined it's the time to take...

    RMMV Casting time

    Hello everyone, I am quite new to the RPG maker scene, so please excuse my question if it is trivial. I have been intensively looking for a mean to introduce casting times in a game. This should push characters intending to use powerful skills to be vulnerable for a certain duration requested...

    Is it possible to make a check type system?

    I had this idea for combat where you could "check" an enemy, and once you do you unlock some attack for that enemy. Would that be possible for mv without having to know a ton of coding?

    Use One Skill to Execute Multiple Chosen Skills

    Howdy! My question is simple: Is it possible to have a single skill execute multiple skills that the player selects, dynamically? For the sake of an example, setting a couple definitions for this purpose: Multi-execute skill can be called "Combo" There exists Skill 1, Skill 2, Skill 3, Skill...

    Changing weapons mid battle

    Hello! I'd like to give the player the option to change which weapon they are using during a battle. There is a large number of different weapons in my game, and at any time, the player could have all of them, none of them, or any combination therein. The player can always use any weapon...

    Controlling Combat Complexity

    "Simple but deep" is a common paradigm of good combat systems in RPGs. We want mechanics which afford players plenty of opportunities to make meaningful decisions, but we don't want to overwhelm them with heaps of different rules to memorize, especially early on. (This applies to the...

    Versatile combat style and equipment slot

    Ever like the idea of using bow to slap your enemy? Using sword as throwing weapon? Or dual wield shields as your main melee weapon? That might sounds silly yet interesting, right? Your standard equip slot feels restricting. Warrior are too proud to wield dagger, Mage are too dumb to use sword...

    Eventing Ranged Attacks in a Roguelike System

    I've been working on an action/roguelike game for RPGMaker XP, and it's been going well so far. When you touch an enemy (or an enemy touches you) you deliver/take damage depending on what sort of weapons you have; nothing new. It works well enough for melee weapons, but I have no clue how I...
