I am a complete noob at js but, I will give a look around and see if I can find a way of doing that.
I don't know if you've already Googled it - I've seen threads on here and Reddit for implementing this in MV. Plugins might be compatible or easily modified, and solutions using stuff like Yanfly state tags would probably be able to be directly copied, just renaming the notetags as appropriate.

It would at least give you a starting point, and you can ask for help from there as necessary.

Hey, I don't know if this is a silly question but, I want to set a system like Persona using the STB battle system. I would like to create a situation were if you "down" all the enemies by exploiting their weakness, you can make an "all-out attack" which is a feature where all the party members attack the enemies and give neutral damage. Is it possible?
That's already a plugin feature. You can set a common event to be called for when either the enemy or actor side gets downed.

Of which plugin? Note that the OP's use of the word "downed" does not mean "dead."

Sorry for not being specific. The question whas in regards to the STB battle system plugin right? It has an "Exploit System" included in which you can apply states to enemies and actors when hitting them with elemental weaknesses or critical hits. This can also cause extra actions. One feature is calling a common event when a side is exploited. If a stun is the applied state you get the "downed" thing.

I haven't searched it yet. I will take a look at these threads, thank you!

Hey mate, I found what you are talking about. That function was definitely the last I would look at due to the name they put there. You mean this, right?

This certainly makes the job a lot easier. It was my bad for missing this, I just need to set it to give the option to use the attack and event it. Much easier than script in my opinion. Thank you for telling me about this, I would never find it.

Reading the plugin documentation helps a lot. Since action sequences are already plugin commands in common events you can make the entire thing as fancy as you want.

Well, I made sure to read it from top to bottom but, I don't know how I missed this. I think I was already tired from reading these help files for hours and ended up forgetting about it. I will try to use action sequence plugins and the battle core to give it a more stylish look.

Hello,
Is it possible to move the status menu to another graphic and move it further to the right instead of taking the portrait menu graphic from the main menu? I tried this code but it overwrites the graphic and after that the graphic has been taken over from the status menu in the main menu Graphic.

Code:
// Draw Actor Image
const portraitName = actor._menuImage.replace('_status', '');
 if (actor.getMenuImage() !== '') {
    actor._menuImage = portraitName + "_status";
    }
else {
this.drawActorGraphic(actor, gx, gy, gw, gh);
}

thanks :eswt:

Does anybody know why this happens? I'm trying to give my enemies icons indicating seperate variants.image_2023-01-24_222236349.pngMy enemy's names don't display icons. I'm using the Visustella Elementand Status Core, Can it not do icons in the formatting code?

Erm...can you post a screenshot of the formatting code? I don't see anything in the documentation for that plugin that would have anything to do with changing an icon or interacting with a turn order display.

I only see notetags and plugin commands about that in the Battle System STB plugin.

I spent a lot of time trying to get icons into the battlers' names and as far as I can see it cannot be done from within the VS plugins.

It can be done using Eliaquim's Global Text plugin, but that will remove centralised text in other windows. If you are not using automatically centralised text then that's not a problem.

OH! I see now was the OP was trying to point out!

I was focused on the top row, where the enemy turn order doesn't have any icons, I thought they were trying to do that. I didn't notice the enemy names beneath the battlers at all.

Yes, you're absolutely right, the plugin mentioned by the OP doesn't have anything to do with adding text codes to new places, you'd need Eli's plugin or something similar.

I see. Thanks Kes. I guess I'll just use.... Emoticons, Those seem to work. It's weird that it's not able to display icons, almost everything else does.

Not in the notetag itself, no. You can put a wait into an action sequence.

Hmmm I've tried the action sequence and it doesn't seem to be working for me. I'm trying to do a % of damage dealt healed back to the player. But i want the heal portion to take place after they move back to home.

The basic sequence works the actor moves to target strikes and moves back. Then the next spot starts fine, the animation plays on the character but the heal does damage to the player.

Hi sweethearts! :kaoluv: Check out my review of @EntangledPear's totally oldskool The Stuff Fairy Tales Are Made Of!
When you spend all day at work distracted by things you want to work on or try in your project and then by the time you get home, you are too mentally tired to concentrate so you just browse the forum instead and think of more things you won’t get to work on for a while.
Time to write some enemy behaviors, here's the stream link for those interested.

Call of duty 1&2 had an interesting cheat prevention method. Between levels the game unloads and reloads the engine dll. If you ever employ this method, make sure to include at least an md5 hash check. Otherwise I can just edit that dll and implant cheats into it.
Hi-Fi Rush is one of the coolest games I've seen in a while. I don't have a way to play it so I watched a friend and wow... I really wish I had a powerful enough computer for it.
