    Hey,

    I have recently started using RPG maker VX ace.

    I have created a rough game so far and I really need some help as I have never used scripts before and don't know how.

    Basically, I have downloaded a script for enemy health bars. I have then copied and pasted it into materials on the script section like it says to do so on the script.

    It isn't showing enemy health bars and I have no idea why.

    Can someone please give me a step by step tutorial on how to successfully install and use this script?

    Much appreciated,

    Pudge :)

    I pasted the script into the materials section of the script editor. I opened the file with windows notepad. There is now an error message script 'Game Enemy' line 7: NameError occurred.

    uninitialized content Object::Begin

    what other modifications/scripts do you have?

    Line 7 is a blank line, and 336 is clear_actions...

    My question now is, what other scripts are you running?

    also, remember you have to start new games when adding scripts.

    I see he's updated it quite a bit since I last used it.

    I have my own version I use now, but nice to see how it's come along.
