So I've been looking through threads and finding youtube videos and such cause I try to learn as much as I can without having to pester those on the forums, but I'm a bit stuck here.
I found the a.add_state(stateid); a.atk etc etc etc. and I've tried to use it. It works perfectly fine with the out of the box states (poison, confusion, stun, etc.) but the state's I've personally created over the past few days don't work correctly, or instantly crash the playtest with the error of an incorrect syntax. I've only had the software for two days so forgive my ignorance here. I'd like a little assistance, how do I know the state ID? I figured it was the 001 002 003 etc that was being displayed with the OoB states, but when I tried to apply the following a.add_state(029); a.atk 150 + a.mat * 4
this causes the game to crash. I can and will gather a few screenshots and provide them below.
I suppose if I had to sum it up to a few questions.
How can I assign state IDs so that my skills can reference my custom created state's properly?
How do I view what it's state ID is?
An example for the type of ability I'd want to do
Maelstrom Crash: deal lightning damage to all enemies and grant the caster resistance to Lightning damage. (very basic example, I think there's a Force state that is an OoB ID that works correctly.)
Thank you for any assistance in advance!

As I was adding these I found another (error?) but probably just my ignorance to this subject.
a.add_state(014);
State 14 (HP regen?) gave me provoke in combat.

Say 14, not 014.
And 29, not 029.

Leading zeros causes some things to convert to a different numbering system, which is where the "invalid octal digit" error comes from.

I love you!

Thanks so much!

I have a follow up question in regards to this type of thing.
I'm designing an ability that is guaranteed to critically strike. So I figured make a state that gives 100% CRI that only lasts ONE action. and then I slapped a.add_state(41); to the ability, but... it applies AFTER the attack. Is there a way to phrase it or a way to go about making the buff apply BEFORE the attack so that it immediately drops off after?

@Airil Since this is a different question than what you asked when creating your thread, I would suggest to create new thread. Although it's technically not hijacking since it's your own thread, it's changing the topic at hand.

I'm closing this thread since it has been solved. Next time, when your thread has been solved, you can report your thread (the report button at the bottom of any of your posts, besides the "edit" button) and ask for it to be closed (you can write "solved" for the reason). Thank you.

This thread is being closed, due to being solved. If for some reason you would like this thread re-opened, please report this post and leave a message why. Thank you.


EDIT: You can check out the tutorial thread on the damage formula for VXA here:

Okay, that's the best I can do. Looks a little strange but..err.. it's my style, yeah, very original style..
being an extreme introvert with massive anxiety... I forget this is really, REALLY frustrating for people who are the exact opposite. still, wait this out and stay home...
I hope you all are keeping safe. <3 If you need a shoulder or an ear, I have two of both and am more than willing to listen & support you! Times are weird.
My dad, super frustrated by seclusion, asking me how I live like this. I shrug. "It helps to not like what is outside."
Apparently it's not just people who are hit by corona virus. My phone has set itself to English language on its own. Not that I'm complaining... :D
