Hey guys, I'm only 40 hours into RPG Maker, so I'm an absolute noob at this. I've made much progress by logical conclusions and a few video tutorials, yet there is something I can't seem to make happen.
So there is this specific skill I made that's similar to the minimize move from Pokemon -- it increases evasion and the sprite changes to a shrunk version of the actor for the remainder of the battle. It works perfectly with the actors.
Problem is, I can't seem to make it work with enemies. I've added a conditional branch to trigger transformation with the minimize state yet nothing happens, tried a common event tied to the skill... to no avail.
I tried transforming the enemy without any conditioning at the start of the battle and that works; it does transform, but nothing happens when coupled with the minimize state. I don't really see what I could do different.
Seems it has to be with something not connecting between the conditional branch and the enemy transformation. I know it's merely cosmetic, but... it's cool.
Do you have any ideas? Am I not seeing something obvious? Do I need a plugin?

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you want, but I managed to get something working. I duplicated the enemy I wanted minimized and resized its sprite in an image editor. Then in the Troops tab, I did this: 1596144137340.png
If you wanted this for more than one enemy, you'd need multiple "mini" versions of them in your Enemies tab. I'm sure there's probably a cleaner way to do this, but this was the first thing that came to mind. Let me know if this works out!

Did those settings work for you? Mine won't change to its minimized state at all, for some reason. I find this odd. Luckily I just need this one enemy to shrink since it's the only enemy to have this power. Still, can't make it happen. Maybe it has to do with the minimize State settings? Something blocking the way?\

Edit: I managed to make it happen. It wasn't transforming because for some reason the state was checking 'remove at battle end' for some reason. I had to uncheck it. This begs for another question though: Does this mean my characters will remain shrunk and with high evasion rate in the overworld or is that eliminated by default? Sorry in advance is this question is too noobish but it's still linked to the topic lol

those settings should work, which means that the problem might be in the details.
Please post a screenshot of YOUR troop event so that we can check it for errors.

I'm not sure why unchecking that made it work for you. Mine worked with it both checked and unchecked. Could you please post a screenshot of your state and troop settings?

I got it working somehow, I unchecked it and tried again and it worked. No idea what was not letting me do it. It obviously was a detail thing. Thanks a bunch for the help!!!

Nightmare... Dreamt I posted a GFX resource post. With a work in progress glove icon that tinted to different colors. In the wrong forum. And I was in such a panic. I saw people writing posts in response, those "..." you see in discord and such. So I frantically tried to report my post as wrong forum, editing to say it's the wrong forum and that I "accidentally" posted it too early... Very odd dream to be honest...
