Hey all!

Ran into an interesting snag in development. I am using YEP Absorption barrier, together with LETBS, while there were no major loss of function. The plugins operate together, to the extent that a barrier is still created, and said barrier will still mitigate damage.

However, when "shielded" there is no damage pop from shield damage. nor will the animations from YEP's Absorption barrier proc when the shield is destroyed. My initial hypothesis is LETBS DamagepopupEX and YEP Absorption barrier are conflicting with how to handle the shield pops. Or perhaps DAMAGEPOPUPEX was never written with the intent of shields.

In either case I am in need of assistance, I have tried moving said plugins to multiple places above and below other plugins, to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas? Because not having a visual indicator that a shield is gone is kinda bad design

in the absorption barrier plugin setup, there's a parameter to define a "Barrier State", do you have that setup?

In my project, the barrier state I set is 23, and then this is what's setup within State 23:
In the notebox:


<Custom Deselect Effect>
var points = target.barrierPoints();
if (points !== target._currentBarrierPoints) {
target.setStateCounter(23, points);
}
</Custom Deselect Effect>

<Custom Regenerate Effect>
var points = user.barrierPoints();
if (points !== user._currentBarrierPoints) {
user.setStateCounter(23, points);
}
</Custom Regenerate Effect>

Thanks for the reply, but this is not what I need. It is because i'm using a non standard battle system.
I am using Lecode Tactical Battle System. LETBS.

It has a problem handling overlay because the core mechanics for LETBS are still in 0.77 and 0.8 has yet to be released, which were to support sprite overlays, which I could have settled for, as it would have been a visual que to see the shield is gone.

However Im willing to settle for getting different color numbers to display when you are hit with a shield.

Looking more into this, its nifty that it shows the shield portion as a counter, I would also like to get a popup if possible.
