I had wanted to make the combat in my game more interesting by making attacks fail often, but HP low to compensate. Along with this, I had wanted a failed attack to return a sort of joke-y fail message.
I had tried to use a script that changes Attacks to make them call events if you use a specific weapon, but I couldn't get it to work.

So, what I'm asking for now is a script that makes ANY battle action show a textbox.
Like:

>Hero attacks!
>Enemy recieved 20 damage!


That sort of thing. Similar to MOTHER, y'know?
If there isn't a script for this, I'll happily move on, but any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: So apparently this sort of thing is called a Battle Log? Or maybe that's when you can read what happened after the fact. Either way, my request remains mostly unchanged. An XP script that enables me to display text whenever anything happens in battle. Thanks again!

If there isn't a script like that, I would like to make one. May take a while (some days) though, I'm really busy lately unfortunately :/. From what you describe, I think it may be an easy thing to do.

Really? I wouldn't want to bother you or anything, but the offer is very nice! We'll see if anyone knows of a script. If you do end up making one, I'll be sure to give you credit!

@Doinathing Ups... I'm really sorry, but I misread and only now noticed this was about RPG Maker XP. I thought it was MV :/ I guess when a girl tries doing too many things at once ends up doing everything wrong :p. I'm really sorry but I think I can't help much with XP

Oh. Well, that's okay! Thanks for offering, though.

This might be what you're looking for:

There's also the Battle Comments script, which you might be able to edit:
This was exactly what I was looking for, thanks! It's strange when I searched for this I didn't find anything, tough. Let's hope this works!

@slimmmeiske2 Okay, this is pretty much what I'm looking for, but would it be possible to display an additional message when an attack fails?

I'm moving on from RMXP finally. I've been stuck in a difficult decision between XP and MZ, and I've given up and moved on to MZ. Overall I'm really liking it, I wish tilesets were easier to setup like XP, but it's actually not that bad!
Have you ever gone full 'Ship of Theseus' while frankenspriting? Because I just did.
I saw my new eye doctor today, he reminds me of Satoru Iwata for some reason
I've been using a modified version of a script called Multiple Messages. It makes my text boxes look like a Mario & Luigi game! There is something about it that bothers me a little bit, but I shouldn't worry about that now.

Side note, Mist's walking animation is almost perfectly in sync with Loose Yourself by Eminem.
Starting work on some stuff for the community. Hopefully it will be fun, and useful to somebody.
