Yeah, I'm definitely using quite a bit of plugins, but it looks like its the same thing when I use it in a brand new project. Here is the JS settings:
1632777797093.png

My goal was to keep the normal TP gains from attacks and taking damage that I have instead of using the formula in your plugin. Basically, all I'm trying to do is create an Absorb TP ability that displays the amount of TP drained. The way I was currently doing this without your plugin is typing this in the formula:

a.gainTp(35); b.gainTp(-35); 0

But there's a couple of problems with it.. it doesn't show the amount of TP absorbed and it shows a 0 for damage taken. The ability is only meant to absorb TP, not deal damage.

I also have another ability that absorbs HP, MP, and TP all in one ability, and it currently only displays HP and MP absorbed. Ideally, I'd like all 3 to be shown.

Okay… your follow-up post has confused me about what the actual issue is. Is the problem that a TP drain skill does not, in fact, drain any TP? Or is the problem simply a visual problem, in that you don't see TP "damage numbers"?

(If it's hard to tell because you have no TP gauge for enemies, you can try giving the skill to an enemy and see if it reduces your party members' TP when it attacks.)

I can see the character's current TP.

Before trying to use your plugin I was able to setup an attack that allows me to drain TP, but it did not display the TP drained and it required a 0 in the damage formula if I did not want the enemy to take damage. That is why I wanted to try your plugin. To show the TP absorbed and not a 0 for damage.

The attack I showed a picture of a couple of posts ago drains HP, not TP, with your plugin and notation. Even with a brand new game with those plugin settings it did not work.

Okay, got it. I'll find some time to test it out myself and figure out what's wrong. It might take a few days for me to get to it though.

Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
Been sick with a stomach virus for seven days now. Not going to work tomorrow because I'm still contagious according to my doctor.
Much as I love my job, I really hate playing "office politics". It would be nice if I didn't have to pretend to be someone else all day long.
