Hello, I'm fairly new to RPG Maker VX Ace, so I might be missing something obvious...

Is there a way to set a state on a enemy battler without it using a skill/item to set the state? I want to create an enemy state called 'Armored' which one of the actors can remove with a specific skill. I can create the Armored state and the skill, but I want the enemy to begin the battle in the Armored state and I don't see an option that allows me to do that. Is there a simple fix for this, or do I need a script to make this happen?

I think you can do this in the enemy pages but you could do it in the troop's tab. Under the troop you add these enemies too, you can have it start at the beginning of the battle and place it on the enemies right away. Add a little text, if you want, stating it.

To add to this, make sure it happens on turn 0 (turn 0 is equivalent to beginning of battle)

Hope y'all are staying healthy, safe and informed. Maybe pick up a new hobby or skill while you're at it.
Wanted to post a video of location i've finished but it doesn't work...
The game jam has done a lot of good in actually kicking my butt into action. I've even gotten over my crippling hatred of mapping thanks to it! :LZSexcite:

(Okay, there's also schoolwork forcing me to get on the computer, but I like to give credit where credit is due.)
Decided to start working on my second biome/area...


I'm sure I'll end up hating and changing things a whole lot over the next week. :LZSexcite:
I feel bad sometimes around others, I hate, and I mean HATE being touched, and I know they don't know I hate it so much
