Hey all, I'm using Yanfly's Charge Turn Battle (CTB ) type combat and I am having an issue when a party member has enough speed to take 2 turns before the enemy. Everything functions fine however there is no way to indicate to the player that the party member will be able to act again before the enemy.

This is what it looks like, but I am wondering if there is a way to display the same actor's portrait multiple times on the screen if they are able to act again before the enemy.

Similar to how it is in FFX essentially. Where this displays that Tidus will be able to act again before anyone else.

Thanks all!

You may want to try THIS then.

The problem with this is that part of the CTB turn order is the speed of the skill that you use. Therefore, the battler's next place in the turn order is not solidified until after they take their action, so the plugin doesn't try to predict a location that might change.

I'm not sure how the extension JamesRyan linked to really helps you. It shows the battlers' relative speeds, but doesn't do anything to add multiple icons in the turn order like you asked. Really, you'd be looking for a different battle system (or modifying how the CTB fundamentally works).

Thanks for the suggestion, but at a glance I don't understand what the yellow bar means and I wouldn't want to expect a player to either. I know it relates to the speed but showing the same icon again would be a much simpler UX choice.

Yeah, I don't plan on having any actions affect turn order currently other than maybe an agility buff but I haven't looked deeply into a way to fix this after one of my friends testing commented on it.

That being said, it isn't too much of an issue with multiple party members, just for 1 on 1 fights where one character is particularly fast.

I have been enjoying a game on my iPhone, called Wonderbox. It is just a little game where you create adventures, share them, whilst also being able to play others. It's a bit zelda-esque. I have started some youtube for those, gonna start with RPG maker things soon as well. So if you wish to see, do check it out :)

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
