Hi Everybody,

I am looking to do one of two things, but can't figure out either:

  1. Force use an item from the inventory on the party leader through a common event
OR

2. Run a common event when using an Item from the inventory. I want the event to Run BEFORE the item effect is applied because it changes the formula. I can do it in battle using Action Sequences, but I can't figure out how to do it on the Map or Item Menu.


Thanks for your help

neither will work, because the engine doesn't work that way.

What is usually done is that you simulate the effect of the item in the common event by using the change actor commands, then remove that item from the inventory by change item command without ever having really used it.

If that isn't possible in your case, you'll need a plugin that provides such a function.

I see. I guess I will need to commission a plugin for that. Thanks
