Well, I came across a situation. By default, whenever there is only one character in the group, the formation option is turned off.

What i need is that when opening the menu, the formation option is enabled, even when there is only one character in the group.

However, I am using a Himi plugin that allows me to place the secondary characters in a "reserve" group. If the player places all the secondary characters in the reserve group and leaves only the main character, the formation option is turned off and I can no longer "pull" the characters in the reserve group through the menu, because the option is grayed out or turned off.


Is there any way to change the default rpg maker mv plugin to prevent turning off the Formation command?

I appreciate any tip. Thanks.

So you installed a plugin, and it causes a particular problem when you use it to force a particular set of circumstances?

Sounds to me like you need to report the issue to the plugin author and ask them to make a fix, rather than patching MV to fix a problem that is introduced by a plugin.

In fact, it is not a problem created by a plugin. It is a standard configuration of Rpg Maker MV.
Whenever there is only one character in the group, the Formation selection is turned off.
So, in other words, in the patterns of a new project, I wanted the Formation option to remain ON even with only one character in the group.
I just mentioned the Himi plugin to illustrate why I wanted this, but you can ignore that part, haha.

In standard MV, if you have only one party member, you don't need the formation option. You only have this issue because of the plugin, and because you have moved all party members to the reserve party. If you weren't using the plugin, you wouldn't have the issue, because you wouldn't need to change formation when you only had one member.

Considering that everyone who uses this plugin and does what you've done is going to have this issue, it's better to see if you can get the plugin to cater for the situation than to have another one written to "patch" it.

Terribly depressed. Worst birthday I've had in years, no motivation to work on anything. Still no income. At least I've got my computer running again.
