I am thinking of making a game but something is pulling me back.

I am a absolute beginner with a learning disability so it's harder for me to learn new stuff but I do my best. So here's the thing:
I want a battle screen to be similar to Hylics and OMORI, in a way I want the screen to have portraits of the characters, and I have a mechanic in mind. In battle you have two bars: SB (Substance/HP) and WILL (Mana). SB is obvious, you reach zero and you're dead unless you gain a party member that can revive you, but WILL is your willingness to keep going in the dream world, you use it for special attacks but it depletes when you use abilities and the less you have of it the more miserable the portrait looks and your character will have lower defence but higher chance of hitting the enemy. But I do not know how to, is there a script for it?
And I do know how to create the attacks since I am a animation student so no need to help with that.

Also can you put status effect icons on the corner of the character portrait like in Hylics?
Any help appreciated

By default RPG Maker already uses portraits and you can change the names of things like HP and MP in the Terms tab.
If you want to customize the layout any further (like for the changing portraits and stuff) then you'll either need someone else's script or commission someone to make one for you. Hylics and Omori both have custom-made scripts for their games.

I just lost an hour plus of time to trying to modify the _battlefield sprite... when in reality MZ calls it _battleField ;_;

Even when debugging for the "undefined value", it looked exactly the same to my 20/60 eyesight.

I really prefer this_naming_convention rather than thisNamingConvention !!
hmm... I just solved one of the more annoying sideview battler problems in MV.. Passive States and Visual States can make it so when your character is in crisis HP, they don't go back to normal walk/wait when it's their turn. they stay in the crisis motion... neat.
Apparently all of LGBT reddit hates me. I posted a simple question and only got hate mail. What's the deal? The doompost was literally 6 months ago and I've changed my views since then and apologized.
