Hi guys!  :)  

I need your help for a system I'm trying to realize.

Basically in my game characters have only one gauge(Energy) that works for both HP and MP aswell.

You can find a post here with all the reasons:

http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/43162-hp-gauge-only-tips-and-opinions/

You can also comment and give me some tips or opinions if you want.

As for my request is the following:

I was able to introduce an HP cost for skills/commands. In the proper formula I've add "a.hp -= x;" and so now it actually wastes x HP when used.

What I want is that HP now would work just like MP/TP, so if you don't have at least a number of HP greater than the actual cost per skill/command, that skill/command should be locked and grayed out.
In the same way I want a special command "Rest" to be unlocked when you can't use any other skill or command(except for items of course).
Also in the skill choice menù I would like to check the actual requirement of HP(since the MP wouldn't exist in my game every skill would cost 0 but that's not right).

I know it's basically changing one of the basics of every RPG but it seems to me a pretty original idea and a more strategic approach to your resources.
I'd do it myself if I knew how to script in RGSS3, but still I don't know it very well so if you can help me I'd be much thankful!


As always sorry for my bad english(I'm italian) and thanks to everyone who had patience and courtesy to read all this long request. :)

Yanfly wrote a script that lets you use HP costs for skills, maybe try that and see if it does what you want? I'm not sure if it can be used without the Yanfly battle engine though.

there are several skill cost scripts available on the master script list, please check if you can use one of them.


The one from Yanfly should be able to do what you want, and several others as well.

Shame on me  :(  

I shoud have checked earlier the MSL.

Two Yanfly scripts have made exactly what I wanted. One being the "Skill Cost Manager" and the other being the "Skill Restrictions".

Thanks anyway for giving me the right address to find the solution!

one of the coolest things I've learned from the forums is the ability to give yourself a hitbox. I have a move you can do on the fields. shoulder tackle. thanks to the forums, that tackle triggers self A switches on some events. NPC's and the environment now react to the tackle. awesome.
I really liked how this one turned out! :kaopride:

Dragon Quest style enemy selection plugin work in progress:

It's a simple targeting system from the NES era. Select an enemy group; single-target skills will target the first enemy in that group.
