I've been Googling to no avail, but I thought one of you script wizzes might already know this. When you score a critical hit in MV, using the default engine, what actually happens? What's the formula for how damage is affected? Thank you.

Hi!
That what happens:

JavaScript:
Game_Action.prototype.applyCritical = function(damage) {
    return damage * 3;
};

Your damage is multiplied by 3.

you can change crit rate formula and crit multiplier formula with plugins like yanfly critical control

Thank you! Honestly, that is a little anticlimactic. I was thinking it was something like FF where it seems to ignore part of DEF and so forth. I may have to check out Yanfly's plugin or other options.

I'm moving on from RMXP finally. I've been stuck in a difficult decision between XP and MZ, and I've given up and moved on to MZ. Overall I'm really liking it, I wish tilesets were easier to setup like XP, but it's actually not that bad!

I've been using a modified version of a script called Multiple Messages. It makes my text boxes look like a Mario & Luigi game! There is something about it that bothers me a little bit, but I shouldn't worry about that now.

Side note, Mist's walking animation is almost perfectly in sync with Loose Yourself by Eminem.
Starting work on some stuff for the community. Hopefully it will be fun, and useful to somebody.
