First of all, I really like Olivia's plugins, I bought almost all of her plugins, however, what happened recently confuses me a bit.

Her terms of use contain "You are allowed to edit the code." But the latest plugin seems to encrypt the code, making code modification almost impossible.When I found the mistake, I could neither find the mistake myself nor contact her.

her plugins: "Olivia_ProvokeEffect" and "Olivia_AggroManagement" I have found quite obvious bugs

I understand she didn't want to be found because she was being harassed too much, However, even if 1% of people are the ones who really found the problem,Whether it should be troubled by this.

After I closed all other plug-ins, the problem still exists, does it mean that there is something wrong with the plug-in itself.

If there is a problem with the paid plugin, even if the author does not intend to solve it, should the author give customers a channel to feedback the problem?

-------------------------------------------------------------------
"Olivia_ProvokeEffect"
Note the skill of "<Provoke>", if the selection target is friendly, an error will be reported

"Olivia_AggroManagement"
No effect when "@param Target Highest Aggro" is false

Should they? Well I wouldn't buy a plugin from anybody who had no support for it. So they should if they want my money. Do they have to? Not really. Clearly you were willing to buy them even knowing she has no support, so obviously some people will still buy it even without support.

As for if the plugin has a problem or not, you'll want to provide us screenshots of what you're doing with it. Maybe someone else who bought it can help.

Hi!
Well, in my opinion, the producer has, at least, give you feedback, even if they say "I can't support it right now, I will do will it when I have the time". etc.

About the plugin, what you mean by encrypted?
If it is what I'm thinking, this can be solved using this tool. Copy and paste it and use the beautifier.

She has a way to reach her on her itch.io page. It's hidden a little bit, but there IS a way.

I can't seem to find a way to contact her. If she sets her method so secretly, I don't think she wants people to bother her

Thank you for your advice. I know a little about javasricpt. It seems that this website does not make it easier for me to understand the code

Thank you. Maybe you are right. I am contradictory. I should not complain after I choose to buy.

If I need to ask someone else for help, I will.

Its due to the fact it requires you to go offsite and we can't really say how to do it directly (Hint: Go to where it says to go for more resources. It will go to a common chat program. I can't say more). I did suggest she be more clear in it, but we'll see if that feedback is taken into consideration.

There is a "#code-creations" room in the chat room where I can send messages, but I don't see anyone asking questions in this room, and I won't do it because it is not polite to do so

If you have a way to contact the creator and you refuse to use it, you can't really expect other people to do her job, especially when nobody else has the plugin because it's paid.

I don't quite understand what you mean.
Does it roughly mean that she refused to let others find her because too many people who did not buy plugins to harass her?
But how to guarantee the interests of the few who buy the plugin?
Many plugin authors make plugins better because of customer feedback.

You have a way to contact her. You should contact her.

I don't think it's very good service to sell a plugin then refuse to support it when people have issues. Or to take someone's money and expect others to provide that support.

I know that plugin creators get hassled a lot by people who claim the plugin is faulty, but who just haven't set it up properly. People do the same with MV all the time - say there's a bug, but then we show them that it's a mistake they've made themselves. I can understand not wanting to have to deal with that. But there should be a way for people to report issues and for the creators to at least consider whether it IS the user doing something wrong, or whether there's a legitimate bug.

People here can't help you, unless they buy the plugin. And as much as I like to help people, I'm not going to spend my money on a plugin I don't want to use, just to do it.

Like I said click the link where it says you can find more resources like this at, then select that. You can message them on that.

I do wish though they'd say come here to contact me instead, as I'd not assume that is how they'd want to be contacted myself if I just looked at the page.

I need to pass verification before I can contact her, I will try to contact her, thank you for your help.

Yeah. I despise this behavior. I downloaded one of the plugins and it's broken for android. I tried contacting through discord, some mod said he'll ask her, but no response since (she's busy). Now I need to make a compatibility patch for this plugin, I would ask another plugin maker to do so (extra file), but her plugins are now coded in a way that it's impossible. I wasted 5$ (actually 20$+ as I asked another codder to add some compatibility patch before she encrypted the plugin, but it's useless as it breaks on android) on a broken plugin which she refuses to fix, time, and can't even look at the code to make a compatibility patch for stuff. Can't even issue a refund now. The total loss at 25$. And I probably will have to spend another 20-30$ to fix this Android bug (at least I have a normal old file so that the codder can look through the code). If I knew it would turn out like this, I wouldn't have bothered with it.
This is such a poor way to handle things. Definitely will ignore her plugins in the future.
And now this bunch encrypting everything for RPGM mz. Yeah. Great way to kill any plans to use the plugins and customize them to my needs.
