    Okay, so new to RPGMaker Mz, I've mainly put off working with MZ due to lack of plugins vs. the previous version. So long story short, I'm trying to create my own action-battle-system of sorts using common events. I'm no pro at scripting but if I need to use it I'll learn what I can. Here's the...

    Custom damage formulas that I can edit all at the same time?

    Say I want my attack formula to read something along the lines of [a.atk - X], where X is a custom defense formula stored somewhere else in the editor, maybe in a placeholder skill ID. So if [X = b.def] and I want to change it to [X = b.def*0.5], this change happens to every single skill that...

    Damage Values.

    I am frustrated. Very much so. Anyway onto why. I have a character who uses Almighty skills, and the formula for this particular skill is (a.mat * 2) - b.mdf. My actor (Jackst3r) has 191 MAT, and my enemy has 25 MDF. This means the skill should do about 357 damage, right? Wrong apparently. It's...

    So I have this problem, mostly with HoTs, DoTs, and one classes' "heal when dealing damage" mechanic where numbers are often shown as partial values (6.4 instead of 6). How do I make this display only show whole numbers or round to the nearest whole number? https://i.imgur.com/vHsPF14.jpg

One of my biggest pet peeves? Action Button events not being interactable unless they are same as character.

Like... for why?
The X-Mas and ~ all ~ December long Calendar Project seems to bring my machine right to the limit. A very good oportunity to test what my pc can do. Or at which point I should decide to take a step back from filling the rendering program with assets.
The new grafics card and ram do their job well, that's for sure. My own early Christmas gifts were a good investment.
my laptop keyboard gave up, they keep glitching out, it seems like it's time to finally replace them, honestly surprised it lasted this long.
Tiny setback. Turns out my Title Screen image and one of my primary background & avatar images are AI Generated. Glad I went back and checked all my resource links. So I am in hot pursuit of replacement images. Which is fine since I was still missing some images that I need anyway.
Watching Vibrato Chain Battle System is too awesome! watch I wish had this gfx and animation skill to make such game!
