Hi, new to RPG Maker, been lurking and learning the program. Thinking ahead to starting my first real game next month and considering using CTB rather than Standard, and I'm wondering-

I know Yanfly is no longer supporting alternate combat systems, but are they still functional? Has anyone run into major issues using them yet?

I use the ATB system (also "not supported") and it works just fine. Technically though, one could argue that all of Yanfly's plugins are no longer supported since he retired, although "not supported" doesn't necessarily mean "nonfunctional." They all still work just fine.

My understanding is that Yanfly's alternative battle system plugins (ATB, STB, CTB I think) should all be fully functioning, but you'll need to thoroughly test whichever system you use with whatever combination of plugins you have for compatibility issues. I would assume that they would work just fine as long as you don't use any battle-modifying plugins outside of Yanfly's plugins. I could be wrong though, I've never tried them personally.

The plugins stray far enough from MV's base system that ironing out every potential problem would've taken too much time, which is why Yanfly stopped supporting them long before they retired. If you're interested in ATB, I believe there's a couple other users who've made ATB plugins too.

Sorry @Kes , still getting the lay of the land. This probably won't be the last time you move one of my threads lol

I'll probably gamble on using Yanfly's CTB system if that stuff works fine with the rest of the plugins, seems like that whole package is pretty thorough. Thanks for the help!

welp, the stock market went down by 7% because of corona today. Time to buy stocks?
Man, being able to edit my game WHILE testplaying it is like the most convenient thing EVER. Thank you, MV...it even makes up for the OGG thing. Well, almost.
Back in the old days, long before I was born, salted crisps - or potato chips, for you yanks - came unsalted and had a little pouch of salt to manually shake on it. Of course, things are more efficient now, but Walker's still brought back the old 'Salt 'N' Shake' style a couple years ago. Dunno why, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's because the nostalgia crowd were getting salty.
Guys I just want to sit around and work on my game! *gets lots and lots of money shoveled at him* Game, I don't recall a game. What game? :LZSexcite:
