Hey I’m having a bit of an issue with providing updates for my game.

I am using MV and the Yanfly suite of plugins

example; my player as acquired “sword”

in an update, if I change the information in the database that belongs to “sword”, the player does not get an updated “sword”.

they will have to obtain another “sword” in game for it to reflect the database update. Is there a way to change how this works? Very frustrating when you have to make changes to equipment that players already have.

is there a way to refresh their inventory lists?

This is not a Tech Support issue. It belongs in the support forum for the engine you are using (but you have not said what that is), or in the script/plugin support forum.

By default, if you update a definition in the database of pretty much anything except actors, that should be reflected when you load an older save file. The fact that it doesn't leads me to think that you've got a script or plugin that is doing more.

Please state what engine you are using, and provide a list of scripts/plugins. Then this can be moved to the correct area.

Moving to Plugin Support



So one of your plugins is for items ... what item plugins are you using? Something that allows you to create new items? Or something that allows you to assign items to party members?

I believe I found the issue. I’m having them created as independent items through one of the plugins which is causing the weapons and armor not to be updated.

thanks for the help

Yep, so you need to have a way to go through a save file and update all those items with the new description.

But really, what sort of updating are you doing that would make this happen once your game is released? If this is only during development then it's not really an issue, as your players won't be in this situation, as you won't be changing the names or stats of items after release.

If this is resolved now, just report your post and say so, and whoever is along next will close the thread for you.

yo i made a post but it hasnt really gotten any answers so uhhhh
Finished switching to a new PC. Now I could potentially start working at projects or plugins again if I feel the motivation to do so.

Custom slip rates and custom ailment durations for enemies really opens up the floodgates for status effect use. I can have Poison and Time Stop affect bosses without it breaking their balance! Finally, a healthy middle ground.

(Especially after I cooked up a thing that prevents you from re-applying deadly states more than once in specific occassions.)

The Voice... They usually show up to talk to you about leaving your mark on the world, which is one of the major themes of my game... How will you be remembered by society.
