I'm new to using RPG maker MV and I wanted to know if making it so states affect characters out of battle is possible. Like making a poison last after battle is what I'm looking to do and if its not possible than dang.

Make sure the state doesn't have "remove at battle end"

states are completely independent of battles, there is even a setting to have them expire based on steps done on maps.

guess I should've been more specific, what I mean is like your walking around and still have the affect going on like still losing health from a poison even though your out of battle. If unchecking "remove at the battle end" already has this affect than I must be doing something wrong.

Well, what is the state and what do you want it to do?

The poison thing happens because that's built into the engine. If you want other states to do other things that aren't set up by default, you will have to handle that. But what you do depends on the state and the effect you want.

If you want a state to continue after the battle, in the database, choose the state tab and then the state that you want to continue after the battle. In the middle of the screen there is a section called "Removal Conditions". "Removal Conditions" is what you are interested in.

In "Removal Conditions" there is a tick-box labelled "Remove at Battle End". You need it unticked, so click on it until there is no tick in it.

It might be worth thinking about some of the other removal conditions, in case they will remove the state before you want it gone. "Remove by Restriction" means that the actor being affected another state might remove that state. If you don't want that then make sure that box is unticked as well.

If you don't want the state to be removed when the actor loses hit points in combat, you would want the "Remove by Damage" tick-box unticked. Unless you want the state to go away after the party walks around for a while, you would want the "Remove by Walking" box unticked as well. You would want "Auto-removal Timing" selector set to "None".

Might I suggest that you look at a few tutorials? Once you know a bit you will be a lot more comfortable trying things out on your own or reading the "Help" file. I think that Andar has links to some tutorials in his signature at the bottom of his posts.

aww man, color hex code #C4C4C4 doesn't work for the tint value in this scene I need something darker, which stinks just because I liked that one it was my favorite plastic explosive three times...#696969 (nice) should work better (WHY IS MY BRAIN LIKE THIS)
Tell it to me straight, doc. If I've been trying to piece together a "shorter" game to learn stuff outside of game jams... am I just running away from my WIP? :v
Well, I've got a party tomorrow, and my friends are coming over. I wanted to work a bit on the Fandom Scouts assets so I can be ready when that update arrives... in other news, Pizza Time Horror is getting a second teaser, and it shows Cabaret Helen's last performance before the location closed.
