Hello, everyone. I tried reading the damage formula 101, but can't make what I have in mind work. Basically I want the formula to check if the target is affected by certain state. If so, then that state is removed, then the user vaina some mp and finally certain amount of dmg is applied. And if the target is not affected by that state, then normal dmg is applied. How can accomplish this? Thanks for reading !

Hmm let's say.. your initial damage (for the skill in question) is 20

Code:
if (b.isStateAffected(stateId) === false) {
    20;
} else {
    b.removeState(stateId);
    a.gainMp(amount);
    20 * someMultiplierOfYourChoice;
};

Am I on the right track here?
Edit: corrected var misshap.

Worked perfectly fine. Thanks a lot for your help

ive been trying to make a skill that ramps its damage up with each use but the first use the skill is always zero what am i missing?

((a.atk+(a.luk/2))*(.8+(v[21]*.2)))*4-(b.def+(b.luk/2))*2

I'm doing a thing, in a nutshell I want my healer to have an attack that hits an enemy and restores the most wounded ally's HP based on half the damage dealt, but it gives 0. Please be noted I have zero idea of JavaScript


var damage=a.atk-b.def; var group=$gameParty.aliveMembers(); group[group.reduce(((lowest, next, index) => group[next].hp < group[lowest].hp : index ? lowest), 0)].gainHp(damage/2); damage

I was given this code on other post. Can this script be fixed or is there a better way to do it?

You seem to be overcomplicating your code; there's no need to care about the index of the most wounded member. I tried simplifying it and came up with this; let me know if it works. (Of course you need to remove the line breaks to use it in the damage box.)

JavaScript:
var damage=a.atk-b.def;
var group=$gameParty.aliveMembers();
var mostWounded = group.reduce((lowest, next) => next.hp < lowest.hp : next ? lowest)
mostWounded.gainHp(damage/2);
damage

Or with fewer variables:

JavaScript:
var damage=a.atk-b.def;
$gameParty.aliveMembers().reduce((lowest, next) => next.hp < lowest.hp : next ? lowest).gainHp(damage/2);
damage

(As to whether there's a better way to do it… probably, but it would require a plugin.)

Negative, it does zero. For your information, if it would require a plugin, I have the whole YEP pack

Well, the way to debug what's wrong with the formula would be to past the key part into the developer console (which can be opened with either F8 or F12) and press enter:

JavaScript:
$gameParty.aliveMembers().reduce((lowest, next) => next.hp < lowest.hp : next ? lowest)

At a glance, I think the ? and : need to switch places.

@Zealvern it doesn't make much sense to post the same questions in a different thread while you have your own thread active. The only thing it can accomplish is confusing two conversations - in this case, Solar_Flare was posting trying to help you hours after I already gave you working code in your original thread.

@Solar_Flare the over-complication was my fault for not being sufficiently well-versed in how reduce works (and yes, my original post to him did copy a snippet from a blog post that had the ternary operators reversed, it took me two posts to notice).

Yeah, you're right, sorry, wanted to cover a wider area in order to get the biggest amount of possible solutions and get the drill on how do more complex formulas work, that's all on me.

Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
Been sick with a stomach virus for seven days now. Not going to work tomorrow because I'm still contagious according to my doctor.
Much as I love my job, I really hate playing "office politics". It would be nice if I didn't have to pretend to be someone else all day long.
