In this case, the state I am looking for is Fallen, and in the eventing screen I only see a way to check if the actor has the state.
In my game, you can change the formation at will, and I want an enemy to stomp on the target with fallen (using force action, with a state that cancels their normal turn AI, which only lets me check party member index).
Sorry if its too wordy/poorly written, I'm new to using script and whatnot.

there is an eventing way to do this, but it's much longer.
you'll need an event that checks every party member for the state and then selects the fitting force action to act - basically one conditional branch for each party index with the different force actions inside.

Oh, jeez. That doesn't sound like much fun at all.
At that point I'd rather just have them just stomp randomly. Thanks man!

you can use scripts to automate that, but that will require at least some ability to understand scripts.
you can find those scripts in the pinned topic about script equivalents to event commands.

I haven't got a chance to test this but you can try this code in troop event section.
Replace the 3 variables at the beginning to match with your game.
This piece of code is looping through your party then call force action on enemyIndex that will use skill_id to the party member that has been inflicted with state_id
Ruby:
enemyIndex = 0
state_id = 5
skill_id = 12
$game_party.battle_members.each_with_index do |member, index|
  if member.state?(state_id)
    params = [0, enemyIndex, skill_id, index]
    $game_troop.interpreter.instance_variable_set(:@params, params)
    $game_troop.interpreter.command_339 # Force action.
  end
end

enemyIndex = 0 state_id = 5 skill_id = 12 $game_party.battle_members.each_with_index do |member, index| if member.state?(state_id) params = [0, enemyIndex, skill_id, index] $game_troop.interpreter.instance_variable_set:)@params, params) $game_troop.interpreter.command_339 # Force action. end end
Sorry if formatting sucks there. It works perfectly, thank you so much!

Been playing through Skies of Arcadia again, and it really makes me wanna see someone try to implement how ship battles were done in the game into RPG Maker (or really just in general).

split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
