Basically what I want to do is have variable X increase whenever State Y is applied and decrease when State Y is removed. I have tried using Yanfly's state core plugin but it doesn't seem to work, maybe because it doesn't happen in combat. Is there any other way to achieve this effect?

You need a plugin Yanfly's Buff States Core.
Install it and in your custom state's field type:
Code:
<Custom Apply Effect>
$gameVariables.setValue(id, $gameVariables.value(id) + 1);
</Custom Apply Effect>

<Custom Remove Effect>
$gameVariables.setValue(id, $gameVariables.value(id) - 1);
</Custom Remove Effect>
Edit: in place of ID type a number representing your variable you wish to alter

I have tried this already and it did not work.

This is what I have written in the state's note box:
<Custom Apply Effect>
$gameVariables.setValue(4, $gameVariables.value(4) + 5);
$gameVariables.setValue(5, $gameVariables.value(5) + 10);
</Custom Apply Effect>

<Custom Remove Effect>
$gameVariables.setValue(4, $gameVariables.value(4) - 5);
$gameVariables.setValue(5, $gameVariables.value(5) - 10);
</Custom Remove Effect>

I don't think Yanfly's plugin will work here either because my game doesn't actually enter combat or maybe theres an incompatibility with another plugin.

Custom Apply Effect will still trigger if the state is applied outside of combat.

Your effects work fine on my end so if they're not working for you it must be a compatibility issue with another plugin. I can't imagine what would interfere with this though.

I guess I'll need to troubleshoot to find out which plugins are making it not work properly. Thank you for confirming.

So I just spent the weekend...playing my own game. The one I released last year. Yep you heard that right.
Goal for MZ? None... I'm still curious how to finish my VXA project and how it looks like when it actually finished. Which will take at least another two years. Coming late again to the party.
Finding it amusing that people are posting support questions in new threads for an engine that isn't even released yet. Touch and Archeia are the only ones authorised to say anything, and there's only one active thread where they'll be answering questions.
I think my goal for MZ ... is to actually release a game and not have twenty technical demos and debugging projects. Let's see if I can manage that. ;o
I am starting to enjoy writing. I never thought I would enjoy it since my dyslexia was holding me back so much.
Thanks to the community here :)
For those interested chapter 2 and 3 are available to read here:
