I'm using RPG Maker MV. I got Yanfly's Equip Battle Skills plugin to "work." It can be found here.

When I equip a skill from a blank slot there's no problem. The problem is when I equip a skill after every slot is already being used. I choose the slot with the skill I want to replace. I choose the new skill I want to use. The new skill is used. However, the skill that is replaced is often not the one I chose to replace.

The spoiler below shows my plugin list and screen shots that show what I am talking about. I chose the skill slot that was using "Researcher." I chose to equip "Resilience." However, "Researcher" is still equipped and "Energetic" was unequipped. (Resilience was actually misspelled and will be fixed.)

Is there a way to get to choose the skill that is unequipped properly? I would think choosing the slot with it equipped would work the more intuitive way. You can get Yanfly's plugin to work if you play around with your equipped skills for a couple minutes, or unequip everything first, but that is not acceptable. A trait equip function is a standard in RPGs, but I am thinking about throwing it out of the game because the plugin does not seem good enough -- assuming it is even working properly to begin with.

I am using it to equip passive traits similar to Final Fantasy 5, Fire Emblem: 3 Houses, etc.

That gives me hope that a solution can be found then. Glad it's not just how the plugin is supposed to function.

Yeah, I can't duplicate that. I know you included pictures of your plugin manager, but that's an awful lot of plugins for me to look through for you - make sure they are in the order listed on the YEP Web site.

Then make sure they are all updated to their current version, and your MV and project file are updated to 1.6.2.

If you check all of that and it's still acting the same way, turn of all plugins except the skill equip and see how it behaves.

My MV is the latest version. The plugins are from August and after. I checked the relevant plugins and they are up to date. Is there a way to check what plugins were recently updated?

How long have you used the plugin for? I have been using them starting in August and everything should be the latest version starting at that point or later.

I try to make sure the plugins are in the right order, but it is hard to know for sure with some of them. I used Yanfly's list for those ones at least.

Okay, and what happened when you turned off everything that wasn't the equip skills? That's the clear next step...if it doesn't happen in a new project with just that plugin, make sure it also doesn't happen in your project with just that plugin.

Good point. It does seem to work when I do that, so I guess there is a plugin incompatibility. Most of the non-Yanfly plugins are very important (and more likely to be the incompatible element), so I might have to give up on the skill equip plugin.

I might check to see if it is one of Ramza's because they might have a fix, though.

I tested some of the plugin compatibility and Ramza's plugins are compatible with the Equip Battle Skills Plugin. I'm tempted to just give up on trying to use it at this point. Mere passive state skills can do most of what is needed anyway.

It shouldn't take that long to turn the rest of your plugins back on one at a time until you find the one causing the problem. When you do, it's a very good chance that just swapping their placement in the plugin manager will fix it.

It seems to me that it's probably worth at least trying before you give up, but that's up to you.
