I'm not asking here because I'm lazy. I'm asking here because I've spent an hour and a half trying to figure this out. I can't find a single other thread about the same issue.
I'm also super super new to RPG maker, and I'm sure this is a stupid question, and I'm sorry.

So the amount of damage dealt without a weapon is 3, right. This weapon is supposed to do 8 damage, but it still only does 3. I seriously have no idea why. I tried setting the damage to 500, and it still only did 3.

Again, I'm sorry that this question is so dumb, but again, I spent an hour and a half trying to find the solution myself and I found nothing.

You've confirmed that the actor actually has the weapon equipped? Are you playing your game, or just a test battle in the Troops tab?

Yes, the actor has the weapon equipped, and I'm actually playing the game.

Can we have a screen shot of the weapon slot in the database. Please use Alt+PrtSc so that the shot is only of the active window and not your whole desktop.

EDIT
Also, can you tell us what your damage formula is for the simple Attack command. I am assuming that is what you are using, and not selecting some skill.

I'd like to see a screenshot of the actor & actor's class, the enemy, and the weapon from the database, and can you confirm what other equipment the actor has, and if you have added any scripts that affect actors, equipment/weapons, enemies or battles in general? Basically, how "vanilla" is your project? If you've got scripts that modify things, you could disable all of them, or copy your actor/class/weapon/enemy/troop into a brand new project with no other changes, and see if the issue still happens (in that case it might be a script that's causing it).

The damage formula for the simple Attack command just says 3. That's it. Just "3". Could that be what's wrong?

Have you selected HP Damage in the type box above the damage formula box?

If the damage in the attack formula says 3, that is all the damage you will ever do. Every weapon uses skill 1 to determine damage. So if you want the weapon to do a different damage, you need to edit the formula appropriately.

I'd suggest maybe using a simple formula of a.atk, then just set the weapons ATK to the damage you want them to do with it (though, it will add the actors ATK as well, so keep that in mind as well). Just keep in mind monsters use this formula too, and defense doesn't matter in this suggested formula as well.

Your attack formula needs to be "a.atk x + b.def x" where x in the formula is your multiplier, you can set it to any number. If you don't want to deal with enemy's Defense just remove b.def and you'll deal raw damage to your target.

I fixed it. Thank you everyone so much for your help!
Being a noob sucks, but I think I'm slowly getting the hang of this.

I strongly recommend that you take a pause on your game and go through Andar's compilation of info for new users. It will give you a solid grounding in the fundamentals and speed up the learning. Spending a bit of time on this now will save you a lot of time and frustration in the future.
