    Pets and Summons v1.1a
    By Vlue
    Introduction
    This script allows you to create skills that temporarily add actors into the party. These actors (or pets, summons, whatever) will last until the end of the battle, unless they die first... or their turn timer runs up (optional). Summoned pets will be at the same level as the actor who used the skill, with options to adjust level for specific skills. Yay notetags!

    Features
    - Summon actors into battle
    - Summoned actors last for duration of battle or until dead or by timer, whichever comes first
    - Different skills can summon same actor at different levels

    How to Use
    Plug and play, set up notetags as needed.

    Script
    Pastebanana as usual, compatibility mode is for use with scripts that display actor sprites:
    Stand Alone: http://pastebin.com/zuGyMX7z
    Compatibility: http://pastebin.com/ef084qjG

    FAQ
    Q. But, what if I don't want to summon pets...
    A. Then don't use this script.

    Finally something simple and not the Guardian Summon who requires other 2-3 scripts. Thank you. You might want to let us replace the party with the summoned actor, maybe?  :D

    Cool idea, would need tweaked for our game so it could work outside the battle screen but cool none the less.

    That's a nifty script. 

    Is the summoned Actor controllable during that time period?  I'm assuming it acts like a normal PC until its Summon is finished.

    Also, perhaps a way to do the FFIV thing --- if the Summoned Actor dies, the Summoner takes some percentage of the dead Actor's max HP damage.

    Feel really stupid about this but how do I post the notetags, for example: <SUMMON actor_id, timer, level_bonus (optional)>. What should that look like when I use it for a skill?

    Twist my arm why don't you! :3


    Updated the script to allow for medium summons (replaces the actor with summoned pet) and big summons (replaces the party with summoned pet).

    I do like nifty... The summoned actor is controllable, you can always make it non-controllable by setting the actor to auto-battle in the database though. As for taking damage when it dies... It's not something that's in there yet!

    Psh, don't feel stupid :p


    You have two options, here's summon actor 11 with a timer of 5 rounds:


    <SUMMON 11, 5>


    And here's summoning actor 11 with a timer of 5 rounds and a bonus level of 5!


    <SUMMON 11, 5, 5>


    Both tag styles work.

    Are you using a script that edits the actor display window in battle, in any way? If so, try placing it below this script.


    If not, I'll dig deeper.

    Found the problem its not compatible with battle symphony i removed both battle symphony and holders add on and it worked

    Edit does it draw an icon in the battle window beside the names? seems its calling for it but since i don't have that enabled to draw icons on the window could it cause this?

    2nd Edit: Works with yanflys battle engine does not work with holders battlers / symph i cant tell what one is the issue

    but its good work i will wait for updated version of this script in the future if you update it .

    Sorry to bother you mr Vlue,for some reason the first notetag works pretty well... But i got a error in the line 260 when i try to use the big and mid summon.

    Here is the line: if SUMMON_MESSAGES[array[0]]

    Excuse me for my bad English and thanks you very much for this great script.

    Only summon allows you to not set a level bonus, Medium summon and Big Summon require three pieces of information.


    So try:


    <MED_SUMMON 8, 0, 0>
