Since I haven't seen a thread about this yet, I want to know is is possible to have it so that a player/monster can counter an attack before the damage is dealt? To make it easier to understand, I have a monster attack the player, now the turn before the player used a skill so that they would counter the next attack. when the monster attacks the player the player counters before the monster deals damage.

I'm not sure if it's a script I'm using or not, but that's exactly how counters work in my project.

I almost wish the counter would come after damage as it would improve balancing for me a bit.

The way how counters work by default is that the person using the counter does not take damage at all. It's an evade/ parry then counter attack. To change that you would need a script or maybe mess around with the base scripts (not recommended if you're new to scripting). To counter attack with a specific skill you would need a script for that also, otherwise it'll stay as the basic "Attack" for the counter.

Edit: wait did this thread change or something? The hell?

Well....for that, that's how counters work by default. The counter-er does not take damage at all.

Make the skill apply a state to the user that increases counter by 100% for 1 turn.  No script required.

Who knew a adding menu commands would be so hard for something that should be a basic feature.
When you discover great tileset resources that you completely forgot that you had. :kaomad3::kaopride:
Just got a better look at the MZ RTP. I'm very happy with it, especially the sci-fi tiles and sprites. Glad I pre-ordered.
I've just checked the VisuStella Plugins for MZ and there are already 11 plugins. The Yanfly team(perhaps a big one?) really works so effectively and efficiently that some MZ users can likely use tons of Yanfly plugins right after MZ's released (still 13 days from now). I wonder if any other plugin developer(or team) will try to compete with Yanfly this time, no matter how slim the chance to win is :)
