I'm assuming both of these are simple script edits, but I just can't figure them out.

For the first one, I want the battle status window to stay on the right when the player is done entering commands. By default, it centers itself when the command window closes. I've looked over the functions for the battle status window, the battle manager, and the window base, but I can't find where the moving or centering code is.

For the second one, I want my gradient bars to be filled from bottom to top, rather than left to right. I've found the function for drawing gradient bars, but I can't figure out how to change the direction the gradient draws in and none of my edits seem to be working.

1. The position of the status window is set on the Scene_Battle, search for 'Scene_Battle.prototype.updateWindowPositions'

2.

Window_Base.prototype.drawGauge = function(x, y, width, rate, color1, color2) {    var fillW = Math.floor(width * rate);    var gaugeY = y + this.lineHeight() - 8;    this.contents.fillRect(x, gaugeY, width, 6, this.gaugeBackColor());    this.contents.gradientFillRect(x, gaugeY, fillW, 6, color1, color2);};the direction is set by this code:

this.contents.fillRect(x, gaugeY, width, 6, this.gaugeBackColor());this.contents.gradientFillRect(x, gaugeY, fillW, 6, color1, color2)swap the values of 'width, 6' on the fillRect, and 'fillW, 6' on the fillGradientRect to make the bar vertical,

and add a true, after the color2 to make the filling color also vertical.

this.contents.fillRect(x, gaugeY, 6, width, this.gaugeBackColor());this.contents.gradientFillRect(x, gaugeY, 6, fillW, color1, color2, true)Remember to adjust their positions and height accordinally.

Kept making a new frame for any change I did so ended up with a gif XD
How is it called a rpg maker game without the default "pokemon-like" battle system?
Unfortunately, while trying to run an app I needed (curse you, Adobe!), my laptop blacked out, so my data got wiped when I got it repaired. Stuff like facesets are saved in my drive, but my sprites now only exist as screenshots I've taken in the past :kaocry:To be fair, I'm a little relieved, since I've been feeling unsatisfied with the visual style of the character sprites, and I guess I can now revamp them?

after lot's of edits to Mike's attacks (to make it seamless with movement, no EX versions, cost 1-ups), I finally got combo skills to work. had to do a lot moving tho to get the combo list to appear where it is lol. that actually took longer than setting up the moves.
