Do you want to visually display the number of turns that a state has before it expires?
For example, perhaps you have a state that will automatically kill you after 5 turns have passed, and you would like the player to see the number as a visual indicator.

This plugin allows you to display a small number popup above a battler's head that represents the number of turns left before a particular state expires.

This could be really interesting if you apply some reverse usage like a boss preparing to use a really powerful buff and forcing you to interrupt it somehow.

I hope when the counter reaches 0 (zero), the target will be able to become a more powerful character...

At this point it would be nice to get the Tension system of the Dragon Quest series!!!

Hmm...that's a good idea. Let me look into how that might work.

Or perhaps the boss is ready to execute a powerful attack that requires a certain amount of charging to be done, and you have to get rid of that charging state otherwise game over! 

I hope when the counter reaches 0 (zero), the target will be able to become a more powerful character...
You can have the state add a new state, which would then run an event that does something to the enemy or actor.

What is the tension system? I've never played DQ

I received reports of some issues with Yanfly's battle system.


I have updated the plugin to support rounding, so if you need to round the number off, you can use that functionality. Please check that it is the Nov 22 version. If not, refresh your browser.

This is great! The combination of this plugin (along with progressive states) and the curse overlay really makes a doom spell look authentic. I'll have to make my enemies smart enough not to use the skill on an actor who is already afflicted with a count down state least it reset the counter each time their hit with it.

I just downloaded the plugin and saw this post. Did you already upload the new version? Because I'm using old version.

Yes, the new version is up.
Redownloaded the plugin and noticed the change in version. But it's still same...? I see no way to set the rounding, or a change in the rounding.

Oh, I updated my website but I forgot to update the instructions in the script itself.


Hold on.

So I could give Dark Knights an ability that raises their stat, but at the cost of a Doom status, using the right plugins? Sweet!

I hope my annual #DoItForHargon contest gets lots of entries this year (since a Playstation 5 is a pretty big prize lol) XD On further news - I'm back to game devving next week after hiatus cause of that tragedy of losing everything I own.
Rome Trastevere deserve a tileset. Mumble mumble...
Before the full time job, I can make 1 MZ plugin per day, even though it's still hard; With the full time job, making 1 such plugin per week becomes just as hard lol
