The author of the plugin I used...
I suggest you make a thread in plugin support with a link to the plugin (or if the plugin has a release thread on here, post in it for help). It does sound like either it wasn't written well with proper instructions, or perhaps you missed something.
maybe a tutorial...on the basics of parameters and code?
So, oddly...the documentation for RPG Maker MV
included a Plugin Specifications section, that described all of the plugin parameters. MZ does not appear to have this, so I'm not sure where you're supposed to get the information from (I mean, you can look at the MV manual
, but I know some things changed).
I suggest this
thread and the document it links to.
And if they wrote the tutorials presuming you're a beginner who doesn't know anything about code, it would take a bunch of them in order to get you to the point where you can do something like customizing a plugin, at which point they're simply duplicating effort that already exists on many other sites.
I'd like to see a tutorial in how to understand the code and how to update it to customize what's needed for any plugin.
You may still need to look up the various functions and variables used internally in RPG Maker, but you can simply search your js folder to find them in the default code.
Hopefully some of that is helpful.
