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?

"Minus 1 fixes everything" ~ @Tea's Jams

lol, it's true
My game is a puzzle-RPG fusion about non-euclidian geometry, with the main combat system being running through mazes created by the bosses before time runs out, and most of the enemy names and designs are math puns... Is this original enough or need I go on? :kaopride:
