Hello! (maybe hello again ? x)
I'm trying to do a 3 hit attack inspired by Nolegs abilities in EBF5.
I'm using YEP action sequences and even Irina's ActSeqImpact Plugin which allows "Previous" and "Next Target" in action sequences.
I forgot to mention: I would like the Skill to add 1 Bonus hit if his previous target died.
So: 3 hits, if the 2nd kills the target, it will do the 3rd + 1 Bonus hit if the second target dies....

After searching on internet I wasn't able to find how to create this effect. Does someone know?
Thanks ^^

The 3 things I think I will need are:
if (target hp = 0) {
-(randomly select a new target)
-(add 1 hit)
}

Im very curious about this as well, I been trying to do something similar but a bit more complicated because I wanted specific targets, let me know if you figure it out!

The ideas I had were using YEP Action Seq, you can input if and else statements as well as other script, I dont know how much in theory if you knew how to grab another enemy. Then maybe something like this?
Code:
<target action>
action animation: target
wait for animation
action effect
if target.isStateAffected(1)
COLLAPSE: target
** grab next target **
action animation: target
wait for animation
action effect
else
action animation: target
wait for animation
action effect
end
</target action>

I was also thinking of tweaking Chain Lightning, to include an if the target is killed then get another random target, however I still dont know how to only target the specific enemy and not just hit another random enemy on the next hit.

Let's up this.
For now my skill is just a "3 hit attack".
I saw many times people speak about multi hit attacks with changing targets, but never how to do it.
Icenicks idea may help out but even with Chain Lightning I have no idea...^^'

unintentionally made a track that sounds straight out of Yume Nikki
Revisiting one of my older projects in a long time to work some more on the mechanics. I've been working on- and off-again for about a year now on recreating the Force and Mystic systems from Wild ARMs. And I think I've finally made some good breakthroughs on that!

Still, it is not perfect and I may post my thoughts at a later time to see if there are any other suggestions or alternatives I've missed.
actor name string, why you gotta be case sensitive like that?

My entire world, full of monsters and treasures, will likely be done by the end of the year. After that it's all NPCs and side quests... then done. I'm never making an open world game again xD
