Yanfly has a plugin called YEP X VisualHPGauge, which is an amazing plugin that allows the display of an HP gauge for enemies on-screen. I would like this replicated, except for displaying MP instead. I would like to think I could just make a copy of the original plugin, and change any reference to HP to MP instead, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if that would work for sure or not.
At the moment, I am working with an MP display built with SRD HUD Maker, and while it DOES work, it looks awful, and is impossible to position in the same way accurately as the HP bar do.

If anyone would care to do this, it would be great.

Desired Features:
- MP Display, similarly to YEP X VisualHPGauge
- Option to display Value, as well as Max MP
- Anchor the display to the sprite, such that the bar won't just randomly appear somewhere on the screen, but rather, directly beneath the enemy sprite, and right beneath the HP Gauge.

Sounds like a neat idea, he has ATB and HP, but not a visual MP bar. Interesting.

Will watch this space.

Definitely useful! Especially since you want the player to be able to see the enemies MP bar during battle; that way they can plan accordingly. But with any game, you want the UI to look good so having each value next to each other would be extremely useful.

Unfortunately I'm not sure how to achieve this effect. I hope someone answers soon~!

while on 1 side, it would relative easy to create an MP gauge, as an addon or
as a modified version, problem only is, while this is behind a paid wall, modifications
or addon would require that plugin, modify would be easier though, addon is
almost a replica of it, just change the HP to MP would be the easiest way with little
coding to it so it would be placed below the HP.

modify it, and it need some coding to the existing ones to read both.

Upload it, please. I'm using the YEP plugin, and my monsters are using mana for their skills.
MP gauge may help a player to understand a situation in combat.

Thank you. But I need something simple.
Well, Waynee's plugin can't disable TP gauges via plugin parameters. I need only MP ones. :)

if you just need MP, it should be easy to edit, but I dont use any battle related,
or use the plugin to make the edit, but it should be easier while you copy the
HP and make HP to MP, and adjust the Y (if you know how to use the code)
but copy the function in a seperate plugin to be safe). if there are more to it,
than let someone make the edit for you.

you can disable it with note tags. I disabled the MP myself and just have TP showing.

Disabling via note tags might provoke an error within the game.
To avoid it, I just edited the plugin script. Changed "false" to "true" after "obj.hideTpGauge = ".

While was working on one of the monsters that will appear in my horor game I may have made harold a Lovecraftian monster. (I used his head to keep things aligned.)<blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/ceM005w" ><a href="//imgur.com/a/ceM005w">Lovecraftian Harold?</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Finally got my website fixed and the security sorted so it's been a productive day. Can I go to sleep now? I mean... I don't need to work right?
It's always a good idea to refresh yourself on what your plugins do. I'm working on a map with opening walls, and I was about to tear my hair out over how much image editing and hand-constructing of autotiles I'd have to do, when I looked again and saw @Shaz 's Tile Changer could copy areas from another map.
"sorry it took me so long to respond" - can we please agree not to say that anymore unless it actually took a long time?! (Like 36hrs at least) I mean, I'm running out of funny responses here xD
Ugh... 4:53AM over here and I can't sleep so why not just game make.
