hello everyone!

I know how to adjust the party size

in script editor

by editing this in Game_Party

def max_battle_members

    return 4 - changing 4 to 3 or how many do you like

  end

 

but I want to know how to change that using a script call

is it possible?

 

I just want to reduce the party size to 3 temporarily then return to 4 again later

 

thanks in advance  :)

you need a script that rewrites that sequence to check a variable instead of automatically returning 4.

something like

def max_battle_members return $game_variables[999]end(untested, but should work - replace the 999 with the number of the variable that you want to use)It's untested, but it shoould work - you just have to set that variable to 4 at the beginning of your game, and then change it to whatever number you want whenever you want

I think archeia has a script snippet that changes party size with a switch. I'm not sure if you can use it without buying the Luna Engine pack though.

thanks for the help guys!

I decide to use the option above and it works

the only problem is the walking members was still 4 even I changed the party size to 3

but in battle, the actors are only 3 and that's exactly what I want.

the only way to make them 3 walking members is to remove and add the members again.

solved!  ;)

Just try a $game_player.refresh call in a script after changing the number of followers.


Also, I hit the "Mark Solved" button on the post that actually solved your question, rather than YOUR post that said it was solved. The purpose is to put the "correct answer" at the top of the thread so others with the same question can quickly see the answer without having to read through the entire thread.

That moment when you try to figure out a color scheme for an alien ship so that it's something other than "Grey on Grey".
It's up for viewing! See what happened when EquestriAlert got tested in 1997... or was it a test? Did somepony hack the system? Or did somepony push the wrong switch? Even Adagio Dazzle (the owner of the channel) has no clue.

Can you put the pieces together? Don't worry, the game isn't over yet! There's more pieces to add on!
