Starting States Script v1.0
Created by Neon Black

What is it?
This script allows battlers to start battle with any number of states active.  This allows battlers to get a boost at the start of battle that they otherwise would not have.  Starting states can be applied to anything that would give a feature, such as actors, enemies, weapons, states, etc.

How can I use it?
Place this script below materials and below main.  This script uses a single tag as follows:

  • starting state[5] -or- starting states[3, 4, 5, 6] - Start battle with the state IDs listed in the brackets.  You can have as many of these as you want on any item.

What does it work with?
This overwrites nothing and should work with just about everything.

How can I get the code?
Version 1.0 (base script, 3.15.2013) is available from my pastebin account here.

I would like to use this code.

Author's Disclaimer:
While working on my state graphics I got an amazing idea.  What if I made a monster start as one monster at the beginning of battle and change into a different monster when it was attacked.  Obviously there are ways to do this with events, but this is SO MUCH BETTER when the change is instant and the monster has all it's normal stats and skills.  And so, this script was created.  I'm sure you can think of plenty of other uses for it, but that's the one I thought up for it right away.  As always, enjoy!

Thanks for this! This will be useful for making a paper-mario style scanning system where a character comments on the enemy you scanned. This will allow identification of which enemy the scan skill was used on.

Happy Friday, y'all! I just got home from work and am sitting down with a nice cider, and I'm ready to chill and enjoy myself. Not sure if I'm gonna dive into any of my game-related projects or not tonight.... we'll see how I feel after unwinding for a bit I guess!
Just found out that mint tea made from chocolate mint tastes a bit like hot cocoa with candy cane stirred in. As I'm allergic to chocolate this makes me very happy.
It's special day for me tomorrow so time to vanish for 24 hours lol.
So Deltarune Chapter 2 is supposed to release today... if it's out already, has anyone played it? And I can't because I have a stinking Mac and not a Windows PC.
