I've looked through tons of threads here and elsewhere and can't quite find what I'm looking for.

In battle, I would like to display each enemy's HP and current states at all times. With some Yanfly plugins, I can show their HP bar and value below them, and a single icon that cycles between active states above then. However, I'd like to be able to show many icons, each displaying a separate state, rather than a single, cycling icon.

I assumed this would be a common request, but I can't find anyone with a solution that looked right.

Bonus: I'm also trying to find a way to display the actors'/enemies' Barrier points along with the HP bar as a numerical value (think Slay the Spire's Block value).

Thanks for any who can point the way for me.

The problem is the display space. Some games use a lot of states, and no plugin author knows how much space a user will leave between battlers in the troop, so the only way to be sure their UI won't have state icons plastered all over the place is by cycling it in place.

That said, I don't know what you consider "right," but there is this

Thanks for looking for me. I can definitely see the difficulty in creating a plugin that works in every case.

I had high hopes for the plugin you linked me to, but all of my state icons disappear when the plugin is running. It has has an undocumented dependency on Yanfly's Message Core, and the thread seems to dead end after a recent update.

Was this working for you on the current MV version? I haven't been able to solve the problem by deactivating other plugins.

I've never used it, it just came up when I Googled your question.

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you can do with SRD's HUDMaker, but you could try that, or there's this plugin to enable mousing over for full lists and descriptions.

Oh, thanks for looking for me anyway. I did see Olivia's state tooltip plugin, which you linked. That could get the info across, but the player would constantly have to interact to draw out the info.

Oh no. Necessity is the mother of invention. Do I want to know what happened?
Early WIP for my next entry. Since it's early you're going to need to wait a little longer than usual. What's that? You'll find out in my next update!
