>on your first Request: -it is possible to spawn events on random positions,but a random Thunder-hit?
i dont think so..atleast i got no clue where to start to make this.
>on your second Question: -that happens probably to every one i think its a "loading data" Issue and i allready thought about using the Plugin "SRD Preloader Core" to find out if that solves the Problem..but At The Moment i didnt test that Plugin and i also didnt solve that Problem yet.

how do you add mini hp bars?
Are you asking me? If so, please send me a picture of how you would like it. I had to do alot of tweaking with the windows to make it look like the way it is.

Also i would like to report another possible bug: When I initially click the unit to check their stats, the face picture does not show up:

Then when I click out and click again it does:

View attachment 144472

What is causing this?

@Flottos Like Dopan said, it's not a problem with the plugin, it's just that you need to cache it.

You can Use SRD preloader core and preload faces folder of your game (like Dopan said) and it will solve your problem (it did solved for me)

Hi, thanks for the reply. I thought it was that. I tried to use SRD preloader in the past to fix sound lag but it causes huge memory leaks and requires SRD update core which is incompatible with a lot of plugins i'm using. Any other preloaders that anyone knows that are good? I also tried GALV's preloader, also a huge memory leaker too...

skill or item's note:
# Increases the number of actions by X when the skill is used. If set to 1, the skill can re-act after the action.

I tested this also as ItemNote by now . And it only works on Item Note,not on Skill Note (even if the Description talks about Skills)
Has anyone an Idea how to fix this in order to make it also work on Skill Note?
-------
On the Preloader Issue: perhaps it would be better to add a Preloading function into the SRPG_Core,sooner or later ..
-only Preloading the needed data(=faces folder ) when SRPG Battle starts.. look into the next posting from Flottos for the right Timing Info

(and sry i didnt test any preloader Plugins yet,im busy on another Issue)

Hi guys, an update, I retried Galv's cache plugin again and the latest version works well without memory leaks. After looking at the SRPG_Core script, i realized that the Face files load ONLY at battle start and would erase after any Side view battle. The key is use galv's plugin script call for all files in your face folder in the event that calls <type:afterAction> and it will re-cache the face files after every actor/enemy's turn:

I hope somebody is able to help me solve this..:
I need a Switch in the AOE-PLugin,that only triggers after All AOE hits are finished,but the Problem is the Switch triggers allways right after the first AOE-Hit.Best would be if this switch could be controlled in the Plugin Settings (but thats only to make this change usable for everybodys Purposes). Without the Setting Controll i would just make the default of the Switch "false" ,in that way it would be needed to edit the Plugin on your own if u need the Switch..
thats the Code for the Switch:
$gameSwitches.setValue(300, true); it says make Switch 300 "true" The Purpose of this Switch is a (common Event)chain -reaktion that disables the AOE-Skill-Type (="Magic").This is needed to improve the "new Battlestyle" shown in the UpdatedDemo and to make AOEs fully Compatible with it.. As long it triggers after the first Hit,the AOE will stop after the first Hit,.. I tryed to put that Switch Code somewhere at the End of : // work through the queue of actions -but that didnt work (it triggers after the first AOE-Hit) -> Using a Common event Skill Trigger instead of the Switch-Code in the Plugin has the same result -> Using "Post-Action" in a Common Event to controll the Switch Timing has the same result. I think that there is a "Post-Action"-Phase after each AOE Hit and Not after the full AOE is Done.. thats the Main-reason here, why it allways triggers after the first Hit.. I dont know how to catch the timing after the last "Post-Action"-Phase of the AOE Code: //----------------------------------------------------------------------------- // copyright 2020 Doktor_Q all rights reserved. // Released under the MIT license. // http://opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php //============================================================================= /*: * @plugindesc SRPG area-of-effect skills * @author Dr. Q + ????? * * @param AoE Color * @desc CSS Color for AoE squares * https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors.asp * @type string * @default DarkOrange * * @param Show One Square AoE * @desc Show AoE indicator for single target effects? * @type boolean * @on Show * @off Hide * @default false * * @param Refocus Camera * @desc Move the camera to each target as it's hit * @type boolean * @on Move * @off Don't move * @default false * * @help * Allows you to define an area of effect for attacks * Based on SRPG_AreaAttack.js by ????? * * When using an AoE skill, you can target an empty cell as long as there is at * least one valid target within the area * AI units won't make use of this, and will always try to target a unit * directly, catching other targets by coincidence * * Skill / item notetags: * <srpgAreaRange:x> creates an AoE of size x * <srpgAreaType:y> changes the shape of the AoE * type defaults to 'circle' if not specified * * * The following shapes are available, shown at a size of 2. * * circle: hits a circle around the target cell * 2 * 2 1 2 * 2 1 0 1 2 * 2 1 2 * 2 * * square - hits a square around the target cell * 2 2 2 2 2 * 2 1 1 1 2 * 2 1 0 1 2 * 2 1 1 1 2 * 2 2 2 2 2 * * line - hits a straight line behind of the target cell * * 0 * 1 * 2 * (facing down) * * cone - hits a 90 degree cone behind the target cell * * * 0 * 1 1 1 * 2 2 2 2 2 * (facing down) * * split - hits a v shape behind the target cell * * * 0 * 1 1 * 2 2 * (facing down) * * arc - hits a v shape coming back from the target cell * 2 2 * 1 1 * 0 * * * (facing down) * * side - hits a line to either side of the target cell * * * 2 1 0 1 2 * * * (facing down) * * tee - hits behind and to the sides of the target * * * 2 1 0 1 2 * 1 * 2 * (facing down) * * plus - hits a + shape around the target cell * 2 * 1 * 2 1 0 1 2 * 1 * 2 * * cross - hits an x shape around the target cell * 2 2 * 1 1 * 0 * 1 1 * 2 2 * *========================== Upgraded +10 AoE types added===================== * * 'star'_'sun'_'meteor'_'cata'_'canon'_'hammer'_'axe'_'lancer'_'moon'_'bomb' *(For more information:Ask in Forum for the"Recommended AreaRange Help"-File) * *============================================================================ * Script calls for advanced users: * yourEvent.battlersNear(size, 'shape', [direction]) * yourEvent.enemiesNear(size, 'shape', [direction]) * yourEvent.actorsNear(size, 'shape', [direction]) * * Returns a list of actors/enemies/both near the specified event, supporting * the same AoE shapes listed above.

@Dopan You know the AoE is finished if $gameTemp.areaTargets().length is 0- that is, there are no further targets waiting on the queue to be processed. #### Dopan ##### Veteran @Dopan You know the AoE is finished if$gameTemp.areaTargets().length is 0- that is, there are no further targets waiting on the queue to be processed.
i couldnt find that code in the AOE Plugin:
if ($gameTemp.areaTargets().length = 0); so asume it has to be added aswell? -like this? Code: if ($gameTemp.areaTargets().length = 0);
$gameSwitches.setValue(300, true); but i dont know where to put it ,i tryed the end of // work through the queue of actions OR adding a new Section at the end of the Plugin >> that had the same result ,Aoe stops after the first Hit,but i would preffer the "new Section" ..

I'd strongly recommend just using a script call inside an event or common event, since that's less likely to break things. Answer: The Off Switch is within a Common event (=enemy turn) Because the "Common event Skill trigger" doesnt catch the timing i need and i didnt know that this can be handled with scriptcalls outside of the Plugin I just tryed this as Scriptcall in a Common Event (Skilltriggert) , and still ,it triggers after the first HIt Code: if$gameTemp.areaTargets().length == 0
\$gameSwitches.setValue(300, true)
i tryed different versions with and without ";" at the end of each line,it didnt make a difference in this Case.
I think i am ready to give up on this and just dont use the "new battlestyle" in my Project and take it out of the next version of the Updated Demo aswell.. I wasted 4 days on this problem and i just cant get any further..
Sry for bothering and thx for trying to help.
Edit.
i just found out that AOEs are Not Compatible* with "<ImmediateSkill:true>" and because Skill\item-Note:"<addActionTimes: X>" (=from the SRPG-Core) isnt working on SkillNotes like its supposed to
(only item-notes are working),..
..it makes no sence to work on this Problem anymore.

(because the "new Battlestyle" needs something to add "ActionTimes" one way or another)
*that was causing the "stop- after first Hit" Issue on AOEs
Perhaps ill try this again if "<addActionTimes: X>" will work with Skillnotes,
somewhere in the Future but this has no priority for me..

____________
Edit2. @ All

Updated SRPG_demo to 0.9:
-took out the "new battlestyle" and everything related to it (cos of incompatiblety with AOEs atm)
-improved a few things (added 100%Counterrate to all actors and enemys cos its needed for "Q_Statcounter"-Plugin)
-I did Not took out any Plugins and the new "SkillType" -"Wait" is still part of the Demo..
-added the "Recommended AreaRange Help" -Folder (=for the Upgraded AOE Plugin)
again to the Zip.. i forgot that in the last Versions.
-->If somebody recognizes any problem on the Updated-Demo pls let me know, i will change or Fix it ASAP
.. on The Preloader Issue,: i didnt add a Preloader Plugin because im not sure if it will be solved in the SRPG_Core in the Future and i dont want to rush on this, its just a Visual Issue and all work for SRPG is
Free and voluntary.If u want to use a Preloader Plugin just follow Flottos EG (#567)

Is it possible to make this function with MV3D? Particularly, to make the movement grid and selection box 3d:

In theory, you could somehow make a modified version of SRPG_UX_Range.js that is built to work with MV3D, but you'd have to bring it to the developers of MV3D, as I have no idea how that plugin works, and am not inclined to learn its inner workings for one compatibility patch..

to prevent this to be a necro tread,..
I am trying to implement SPRG_FloorDamage into the updated Demo..
But I think I am Doing something Wrong.Does anybody use this Plugin and can tell me what I am Missing?

EDIT
@Doktor_Q
that
solved it thx! (@ Doktor_Qs next Posting)

@ All
I will update the Updated-SRPG Demo to 1.0 with SPRG_FloorDamage included ,as soon "Gofile" has finished the Maintenance, I am just waiting for that, to upload it ..

##### I'm not a real doktor, but I am a real Q
@Dopan Two questions to help diagnose:
1. Can you hit F8 and make sure there's no error messages in the console?
2. How much HP does the fairy have? The formula you're using on that map is "20% of current HP", so if they have < 5 HP it won't do any damage.
3. Where did you put the plugin relative to the others? It's possible there's a plugin order problem I wasn't aware of before.
EDIT: Just did some testing on my own, apparently you need to use the tag <floorDamage> on the event, not <damageFloor> like the documentation says, that's my bad. I'll have the updated version using <damageFloor> correctly, along with some other things like properly handling KO via damage tile, once I get all these version updates done.

@ Doktor_Q
Again, Thank you very much and sry for Bothering^

@ ALL
I just Updated the SRPG_Demo to 1.0 :(Link in the Signature)
- Implemented SRPG_FloorDamage into the updated SRPG_demo.1.0
- changed the Help Info about EventNotetag from "<damageFloor>" into "<floorDamage>" .That works correctly
- I did not use every SRPG_FloorDamage-setup like "Elemental floor dmg" ,but it should work fine just use the Help Section fron the Plugin for more Informations..
- Added Map Nr.5 "FloorDmG"
--> I think Now we got Finally every important SRPG_Plugin included, others are Incompatible or Unnecessary in this Plugin Setup, if u Recognize any Problems or know about a working and compatible SRPG_Plugin that I might have forgot ,pls let me Know..
->Pls Note: Not all Plugins are Explained well,but every Plugin is in the Right Position and should work fine.
>> the next Update will be as soon any Plugin gets Updated ,in order to keep everything up to date.

Long time thread lurker here! The work you guys are doing to create and improve plugins for this engine is amazing. It's literally the perfect engine for the game I've always wanted to make.

That said, I have a bit of an issue at present. I recently updated the srpgcore and doktor_q's srpg_aoe plugins to the most recent versions as I was having some issues with 0 range AoE attacks not being able to be used even with targets in range (this is now fixed).

Since then however I've noticed that when casting an AoE spell that hits multiple targets it's actually consuming MP for every target hit. This was not the case before I updated plugins so I'm curious as to if this is a bug or if there's a subtle change in how you are supposed to set up AoE abilities now that I've missed. I thoroughly read the instructions to see if there was a new script tag I needed to include and then skimmed the thread before posting and didn't see anyone else mentioning this problem.

It's very possible that the answer is just that I've completely missed something obvious, but I figure it didn't hurt to ask. For reference, here's a screenshot of the editor window showing the skill as it is.

Any help would be extremely appreciated as I'm currently finalising a demo to release for playtesting now that a considerable chunk of the game is done.

That doesnt happen in the Updated SRPG_Demo1.0,-link in the Signature
pls try it and use the Plugins* from there, (they are all up to date and in the right order),in order to find out if your bug still happens..

* i advise to take the SRPG_core and the SRPG_AOE
(i think its a problem of older Plugin Versions)

Thanks for the quick response! Updating to the Core and AoE plugins from your demo totally solved my problem. I wonder what cause it in the first place though, how strange!

I took a look at the extra AoE patterns you added in, they seem neat although I don't think I personally will make use of them. I really like that you included screenshots for how each pattern looks, but you might want to consider retaking some of them on a map without the see-through glass floor as it makes some of them a little hard to identify.
