    State effects in Damage Formula

    Greetings RPGmaker creators, I have been hard at work studying damage formulas recently inspired by Roninator2, seeing the potential they could have in the Combat Stealth system I have in the works. I applied this formula to the base attack formula a.atk * 4 - b.def * 2; a.remove_state(13)...

    Greetings RPGmaker forumites, I was recently testing the new Non-Lethal Mechanics in one of My games and discovered Despite an attack not doing damage to a character, a Poison state was still being applied. Is there any way to prevent a state from being applied if no damage is done? I will...

    Dealing Increased Damage with Multiple States

    Hi I'm working on a game where I'm trying to have a single skill deal different damage based on whether the target is poisoned, bleeding, or both. My plugins that I'm working with include yanfly's damage core, yanfly's buff states core, and yanfly's battle engine core. Note that these are not...

    Damage Formula Help

    I've been trying out different formulas lately but for some reason, it isn't working out for me. I'm still new to damage formulas so I probably have made a mistake. This is the formula I made; damage = (Math.sqrt(a.atk * 2) / Math.sqrt(b.def * 4)) { if (a.isStateAffected(17)) { damage *= 1.4 }...

    How to set up this damage formula?

    I'm not very good with damage formulas, and this one goes beyond my knowledge with them. What I want to achieve is: If target is affected by State A -> inflict State B. If that foe is already affected by both State A and B -> deal 50% more damage instead.

    Attack Formula Debugging Problems

    I have an attack formula of a.atk + 15 + (a.lv * 5) - (b.atk + b.def / 2) with zero variance, for various interesting and diverting hysterical raisins. Plug in 30 strength and 30 defense for a 6th level character (and give monsters levels and the same stats) and this should be (30+15+30) =...

    Formula for self-destruct skill

    I want an enemy to attack 3 people and then self destruct. The following damage formula works when the scope is 'one enemy' a.hp-=999; a.atk * 3 However, when I change the scope to '3 enemies' it appears to make no difference, only one of the party is damaged. Can anyone advise what I should...

    Advance Damage formula - addstate

    I was not sure where to post this question. I am trying to use the Damage Formula to apply a state if the condition is meant. Like so. But I believe this is a MV thing and not an Ace thing. Basically what I am doing is: Charm Person. If the target has 7 or lower Wisdom(MDF) that target is...

    A Different Approach to Damage Formulas...

    Hey gamers, We all know too well the basic damage formula of (a.atk *4 - b.def *2). I know there are a lot of different posts with others talking about the different types of damage formulas they use in their games, some simple, some super complex. However, rarely have we seen a damage formula...

  15. Damage formula based on equipped armor

    Hi. I would like to make an ability where the damage is increased if the user has no armor equipped. The damage formula is as follows: if has no armor equipped, the damage would be 110 + a.atk * 2 - b.def * 2. If the user is using an armor, that damage formula would be 55 + a.atk * 2 - b. def *...

    Is there a way to damage someone's TP?

    I've looked through a few plugins such as Yanfly's Action Sequence 2 that allows one to add to TP, but I was wondering if there was a way to outright "damage" someone's TP like you would HP or MP... Like I have it where I'd want certain attacks to fill it up more than others but I don't see...

    Yanfly's Skill Rewards plug in, double value display bug

    I think I've come across a bug in Yanfly's Skill Rewards plug in. What I basically want to do with this skill is use up to 40 TP and recover 1% HP for each TP used. Note: I wanted the user to be able to use this ability with 1 TP, 5 TP, 30 TP, 100 TP or whatever. I didn't know how to...

    Attack that gets weaker as MP goes down

    So I've got a character's skill that uses MP and deals more damage the more MP the character has. I thought this would be simple, but the damage formula doesn't seem to work. I hope someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. ((a.atk * (a.mp/a.mmp)) * 4) - b.def * 2 So if a character has 50...

One year and two days ago, I got RMMV. So far I have:

» Gotten Ideas™ from VXA’s music.
» Made a test project to teach myself the basics.
» Successfully done up a no-combat outline for Ideas™.
» Entered the Boss Battle Build Bout.
» Burned out for over seven months after trying the One Map Challenge.
» Found my groove again about a month ago.

And it feels good to be back on track again.
Let there be light!
