I fixed that issue, thank you for your help! I have a new one where I can only use my first rune (the others don't work for some reason). I.E. my rune combo <runes: 30, 30, 30> = Flame Bolt works... but any other permutation e.g. <runes: 31, 30, 30> = Flame Wave does not work. I changed the combinations to make sure the child abilities (Flame Bolt and Flame Wave) work independently to the numbers calling them... they do... help me?

@silversmithfara Do you mean that only the first skill with listed runes works but no other ones? If so, could you PM me a test project showing the issue? I'm a little busy at the moment but I'll get to it within 2 weeks or so.

I made an edit to this plugin for my personal use, with mjshi's permission. There were some things I wanted to change for my own game.

Link to my version
Can I get some help, I'm trying to use Waterguy's version.
I set in the plugin max runes to 2, and set two runes for the desired result skill, but after picking the runes in battle, the "ok" button stays greyed out.

@The_Black_Knight Hi! Waterguy's version is a pretty different edit from mine, but have you made sure that your basic setup looks somewhat like the 4 screenshots in the main post?
A cursory glance at his version reveals that there are some syntactic differences (check his help file for more info), did you make sure that your tags are correctly capitalized and spaced?
Otherwise, does it work when you have everything set to the default parameters?

[USER]@mjshi [/USER] Yeah all of those are okay, I only encountered the problem when I try to make only two rune combinations work.

@The_Black_Knight Does it work with any other combination/number of runes? Other than that, I'm not really sure... could be some set up differences, could maybe be conflicts if you have other plugins running. @Waterguy, any input?

Nope.
I actually noted, that when I set the skill to active with three runes, the "OK" lighted up on two runes and greyed out on three, and when I set it to activate with two runes, it lighted up on three and stayed grey on two.
Picking "OK" in these instances resulted in the "wait" command being used of course.

I haven't touched my version ever since I lost the project I made it for in a hard drive loss...
I'll download it again and check it out, but could you explain the problem in more details through a private message so as not to take over mjshi's topic?

I solved it, and it was treacherously simple, I have to apologize.
The skills I tried to use had been in an earlier test set to have tiny TP costs. Now when I was trying to rune them up, the character didn't have the TP required.
Bleh, it's always the simple things you somehow don't notice.

@The_Black_Knight Glad you figured out what the problem was! Yeah, sometimes it's really tiny things.
Thanks @Waterguy for helping out, sorry to hear about your project... I really do appreciate your contributions to all this, though. Here's to hoping your future storage drives are sturdier!

Hey, I ran into a problem with yanfly's equip skills and the allowed types, so I thought I'll ask you. I set up my runes to be an allowed type, and it shows the rune command in the battle window, but when I go there it is empty, without any commands. I have set the character to know all runes and combinations from level1, and set his maximum skill count to 99 just to be sure.

@The_Black_Knight Are you sure you've set those skills to be the Rune skill type? If you don't they won't show up in the rune selection window.

Yeah they are. Also I completely forgot I was using waterguy's version, maybe I should have asked him about it.
I tried switching back to yours though, and the runes appear now. Unfortunately then the game crashes when I choose the first rune :( I am running quite a lot of yanfly's plugins too, so I don't know which version I even should try to get working.

@The_Black_Knight A useful debugging tip for that is to disable all of them, then enable Rune Skills, then try enabling half of your plugins at a time. So:

EX:
Try 1:
Rune Skills -> ON
#2-50 -> ON
#51-100 -> OFF

If Try 1 breaks:

Rune Skills -> ON
#2-50 -> OFF
#51-100 -> ON

If Try 1 works:
Rune Skills -> ON
#2-75 -> ON
#76-100 -> OFF

Keep subdividing until you have only 1 or 2 plugins remaining that are OFF, to narrow down the problem. This way, you'll know for sure what works and what's broken, which is a really good place to start.

Good idea, I'll propably have to go through them like that.
Oh yeah, here's the crash screen thingy, I don't know why I didn't think of adding it in the first time.

Hmm, even in a fresh project I get "Cannot read property "name" of undefined. Though without all the other text.
Could there be an issue in how I've set it up?

@The_Black_Knight Maybe? Have you checked with the "Checklist of how to get it to work" in the first post of this thread? Otherwise, I've looked at the line of code that's erroring and it seems to be that RuneSkills can't find the selected rune (maybe it doesn't exist?).

Hello, I'd like to start out by saying I absolutely love this plugin, i'm using it for prominent feature in my game. I've been back and forth between Mjshi's and Waterguy's versions. But I keep coming up with a problem both ways. I use Yanfly's plugins (as many do). When I use Mjshi's the game doesn't save the rune combination and it is forever ??? skills. which is no good for sure, but when I use Waterguy's it works, but for some reason it won't play nice with YEP Enhanced TP plugin and I cannot change TP modes for some reason. It's really gotten me in a bind for the last 2 weeks trying to figure it out. I'm no programmer, I was hoping someone might know the answer to my dilemma!
Thank's in advanced if someone can!

@Lunchbox1946 Hello! Rune combinations should be able to save, I tested this just now on a fresh project and I encountered no issues saving runes. (general steps I did for testing was: enter combat, insert fire rune, is "???", attack with "Fire", end combat, save, exit game, start game, load, enter combat, insert fire rune --> "Fire")

Are you sure you're using the latest version? Saving combinations was fixed in version 1.1b.

@mjishi Ah well, I am using it with the entire suite of Yanfly plugins plus some others also designed to work with YEP systems. I assume there was some error in trying to use it in combination with. I did test to see if it would work stand alone, I should have mentioned that first and I do apologize for not. I'm having some overall issues with MV right now so I'll do some further testing when my RPG Maker MV isn't exploding in my face. XD
