I'm having an issue altering max variables in RPG Maker MZ using a the Yanfly Core Engine Plugin. I can't seem to find out how to implement the variables I change.

What engine are you using? Your post says MZ, but your tag says MV. Yanfly Core Engine is an MV plugin.

So...if you're actually using the correct engine, there isn't anything to "implement" - you set the plugin parameters and they work.

You do, however, have to save your project and then start a new play test after changing anything in a plugin. If you load a save game, it will have the old settings stored in it.

I was under the impression that they were functionally the same but if that isn't the case, thanks for the information.

MZ, I couldn't find a tag for it though

Just installed MV and still having issues. I'm using the whole "Free Starter Pack Essentials Rpg Maker MV" Plugin Pack and can't edit the max level variable to anything. Even went into notepad and changed the default though there and while it shows a visual change, I still can't edit it to be over 99.

"Functionally" in terms of, like, how the game's basic mechanics work, and how you use the editor is basically the same, but they have different code so do not use the same plugins. If they were the same, they wouldn't be two different pieces of software :wink:

I'm using the whole "Free Starter Pack Essentials Rpg Maker MV" Plugin Pack and can't edit the max level variable...to be over 99.
That is bizarre. So you're saying you open the plugin from the plugin manager, double-click on the max level parameter to get that dialogue window, type in, for example, 999, hit OK, and it stays 99?

Also, just to mention it, there's an edit button for your post. If you think of something you need to add and no one else has posted, just edit it in...otherwise, your profile on the side is taking up more space on the page than the actual content of your posts :stickytongue:

Yes, it accepts the changes about halfway (showing the defaut as 200 but I cannot increase the number; dispite the fact that I changed both the default and visual to be so).

It would be helpful if you posted a screenshot showing what's going on, because some of the terminology you're using (default, visual, default below) is confusing.

If it is exactly as I described in my last post, I can't imagine what would cause that unless somehow you didn't have write permission for the folder your game project is in.

Image 1 is my current value in the plugin, Image 2 is my current plugins, Image 3 is my attempt at entering 200 and Image 4 is the current max level

that is neither a bug nor wrong, it is a user misconception.

a plugin cannot change the editor, it can only change the engine.
which means that the max level in the editor will always be 99, but with the plugin installed the engine will ignore that number and use the number you set in the plugin instead.

just play, and you'll see that the actor can really go up to level 200

Thanks that explains a lot, it will be a little weird making the game but now that I know, I can finally start. I'm sure to need help in the future and I'll appreciate any help I can get.

I would also sugggest to remove the core updater which was required
if you use version 1.4 I believe or lower. after version 1.5 that plugin is
not needed anymore because they fixed that issue they had.

if you use version 1.6 or higher, remove it while it will be useless.

Been playing through Skies of Arcadia again, and it really makes me wanna see someone try to implement how ship battles were done in the game into RPG Maker (or really just in general).

split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
