I am trying to create a variable that stores the value of the user's magic attack (divided by 10) and have the Absorption Shield plugin use the <User Barrier: +#> script in it. However, I am having a difficult time figuring out how I can store the value into the variable. Right now my code looks like this:

Code:
var addShield = user.mat / 10;

<Target Barrier: +addShield>

The skill targets one ally. I have all of the plugins, as well.

I also tried doing

Code:
<Target Barrier: +(user.mat/10)>

but it didn't work. It seems to only work with integers.

Yanfly put a custom option in most of his plugins - they're called 'lunatic mode' and allow you to use custom code to do effects.
Try:
Code:
  <Custom Target Barrier>
   value = Math.ceil(user.mat/10)
  </Custom Target Barrier>
in your skill notetag :)
Note that the Math.ceil isn't necessary; I just tend to use it to round numbers, because the engine doesn't always handle extreme decimals very well! But you can set value to anything you like.

Okay, I missed the lunatic mode code somewhere. Thank you so much! This really helped!

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
