I've been using this for a while and it's great.
It adds an incredible amount of personality to each character, which is always nice.
Only complaint I have is that you can't use commas within the message itself, because the plugin will treat it as two seperate popups, but that's manageable. :rswt

@Zinnherz It works with a Japanese comma: 、
I'll inform Rutan about commas usage inside popup.

Edit: Yes, you can use commas by inserting a backslash before the comma.

I had a question... is there anyway to get the popups to appear briefly then go away before an action is finished? basically I was wondering if an actor could say something and then have the popup go away before they commit to the action or something. It's a bit weird seeing characters dash around the screen with the balloon there the entire attack. If I can get the balloon to clear, I think I can delay the action of a character since I'm using Yanfly's action sequences.

@tale What if I wanted to a bit of randomness to text that comes up?

Let's say Actor 1 had 3 messages for 1 skill but it randomly rolls. The same skill is used multiple times but it'll show different text depending on the roll. Is that possible to include this in the plugin?

if the text can use text code
you can do something by variable string

actually, you just list all the different things you want the actor to say for that action and it'll randomly pick through them whenever that skill is performed.

<Speech/Item: This'll Do., Using This!>

My actor one will say one of these randomly whenever he uses an item.

Oh, okay. I understand what that does and works for me, pretty good stuff.

And yeah, I'd also like if the popup messages could appear briefly like how many frames you want to set it if you're using Yanfly's Action Sequences here. Using sequences like an rpg like Fire Emblem, I could attack a total of 40 times and that message would still show until the whole skill finishes.

I'm also looking for a way to make the skill start only after the bubble disappears after a certain amount of frames. Anyone has any idea on how to do it?

This plugin is amazing, there is also an untranslated version available for MZ. It works in a very similar way. It is quite easy to navigate with some minor google translate and if you check the function names when editing the plugin commands.

For those who want the Balloon to disappear before the Action Sequence, I think I have a solution but it requires extra work when making the skills. In one of my projects I have two variants for the each skill, and it gets decided in a common event that uses "force action" on last target, so I actually have 3 versions of the same skill in the database: The "fake" one that just calls the common event and the two skill variants.
I think you could do something similar and have the balloon appear when using the "fake" skill that activates before the actual skill. I hope it didn't sound too confusing, and I haven't tested it yet so I will update the post later to say if it works.
