Basically, I have some enemies that can't be affected by particular states, such as a Skeleton that cannot be poisoned. However, if the player was to cast a poison spell guaranteed to poison 100% (an extreme example), the attack lands but does nothing and the player isn't told why. Is there a way to have a message pop up to say something like "This enemy cannot be poisoned!!!" or something? Thanks in advance :)

Make a blank dummy state that says in the message part "--- cannot be poisoned" make the poison skill apply poison and the state. Enemies that arn't immune to poison are immune to the dummy state. Enemies that are immune to poison arn't immune to the dummy state

This is a problem that even "professional" games have. I liked how Persona handled it though, you either analyze an enemy first or disover a weakness/strength by trying a spell. Then next time you want to use that spell on that enemy, when selecting the target there is an icon that says if it's effective or not (Ex: slashed poison skull).

Of course you will need a personalized script for that...

For a long time I always consider XP soundtracks as the best one.
Just listened to some of MZ tracks from the free version.
It's... Quite mindblowing. xD
Only listened to the battles, towns, and fields.
But I'm sure the rest are equally good. :D
What do you guys want to see for the new Jump into Javascript? A continuation of the rpg_objects, or would you prefer a "lesson 0" where I go back to the absolute basics of Javascript and cover the fundamentals of the language and its construction?
Hey RPG members!!

How do you finish projects? Some new game developers start off strong but end up losing momentum. What keeps you motivated while working on new projects?
