I'm facing another slight problem with Olivia's Octobattle. The plugin's HP gauges are a bit too thick for my liking. I'd prefer them to be about a half or a third of the height.

The only variables I see in the plugin are for minimum width and gauge padding. Is there another way to change the height of the gauges in the OctoBattle plugin? I'm sure there's a part in the plugin's code that determines what height the gauges are drawn at, but I don't know enough about coding to go in and fiddle with it.

All the code is obfuscated and can't be tinkered with, trust me, I've tried. You're pretty much stuck with what's there in the options when it comes to the plugin.

I would guess that it can be done, since both the screenshot and the demo video on the wiki page (that you linked) show enemy hp gauges that are way thinner than the ones in your screenshot. But I don't own those plugins, so I couldn't tell you how to do it.

I had a look at the sample game and then matched all of the plugin's parameters in my game to the one in the sample game, and unfortunately this didn't change the height of the gauges. I even took the plugin from both games and put them into a text compare thing but it showed that they were identical.

This is pretty frustraing :/

Have you considered reaching out to the dev (presumably Olivia)?
Such modifications are usually fairly trivial with non-obfuscated code- and given this IS obfuscated, I don't see why they wouldn't accommodate your request if not with a plugin parameter or possibly just a one-off addon type plugin that would give you what you want/need.

And in defense of the plugin author, drawing up a plugin parameter for every conceivable thing that could possibly be changed is in an of itself rather absurd.

The other alternative, is of course, don't use the plugin since it doesn't meet your requirements.

Sometimes I wonder if I feature creep... 225 magic spells is a lot lol.
Being hit with nostalgia for something that's gone is both a great thing and so sad.

But being a creative means having ideas for bringing stuff back to life, which can be frustrating and rewarding in it's own right.

Updated Senary's design (left). The previous one is overdesigned and her lack of functional pants is distracting and undermines her as a strong female character. She now has compression shorts, shorter hair, and a loose-fitting shirt for a modern look. She was lacking the authority of her original design, so I gave her military cap with her namesake.
