  1. Call Damage Formula on Map

    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...
