Thanks I didn't noticed that my version wasn't 1.1 but 1.0
Easy error to make, as I think this is the only plug in that requires 1.1 that I know of (yet). Easiest way to tell though is to go to the project directory -> js folder, right click on the .js files and open with notepad. At the top will be the version number. If all of those are not saying 1.1 or higher then you will probably run into problems.

Mostly due to health reasons. I'm trying to cut down work from where possible. A recent visit to the doctor didn't go too well.


Man, that sucks... I hope you get better! :)

You need to spell "independent" correctly.


Follow these Instructions. All steps MUST be followed or I will require you to redo it.


1. Download all the newest updates of the plugin.2. Create a new project. Do NOT just copy over your game project folders. This should be just a stock, empty, new RPG Maker MV project. If I do not see an empty project with Harold, Therese, Marsha, and Lucius, I will not look any further.3. If the project's file size is above 200 MB, remove unnecessary audio and image files until you reach that size. Usehttp://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/47985-mvstripper-remove-unused-assets-from-your-mv-project/ if you need some help doing so.4. Install -only- the affected plugins. If you're using non-YEP plugins, do NOT include them.5. Do -NOT- rename the plugins' filenames. They cease to work if you do so.6. Make sure they're in the EXACT order listed on http://yanfly.moe/yep/. The ordering of plugins is important.7. Recreate the error in the sample project. MAKE SURE you are using notetags in the right place and haven't misspelled anything.8. Archive the project with WinZip or WinRAR. Do not archive it multiple times. It does not compress it further.9. Do -NOT- deploy the project through File > Deployment. Upload the project online to a website like MediaFire.com or or Dropbox. Please do not use a website that involves timers like 4shared, RapidShare, etc. If I am time-gated from downloading the project, I will ask you to reupload it to somewhere else.10. Post the link here and I'll take a look at it.
Okay, thank you. :)

                                  THIS THREAD WILL BE USED FOR UPDATES AND BUG REPORTS!


This thread is NOT a request thread. Requests include new plugins, new features for existing plugins, and features that you personally think should exist but currently do not. If you want requests, visit the proper subforum for it; this thread is not the place to do so.






To make a bug report, simply report it in this thread. Chances are, I will find out about the bug in this thread than by making one in the JS Support forum.


ALL bug reports MUST follow these guidelines and use this template: 


Plugin Name: (What is the name of the plugin?)


Bug Explanation: (What is the bug in your own words? Keep this detailed. "It isn't working right" is not a valid bug report.)


Error Report: (If you received an error message, press F8 when the message is received to open up the debug console, then copy/paste the entire error log and paste it here).


Exact Steps on How to Replicate Bug: (Write out IN DETAIL, a step-by-step guide on how to replicate the bug.)


Sample Project (REQUIRED): A sample project MUST be attached to the bug report. All steps MUST be followed. If a single step is ignored, the bug report is invalid and I will move on to the next bug report.


Follow these Instructions. All steps MUST be followed or I will require you to redo it.


1. Download all the newest updates of the plugin.2. Create a new project. Do NOT just copy over your game project folders. This should be just a stock, empty, new RPG Maker MV project.

Post the link here and I'll take a look at it.


NOTE: I'll only provide support for my own plugins and code that I, myself, have provided. This isn't because I disrespect other plugin makers or anything of the sort. If I did, I wouldn't go so far as to maximize compatibility with my plugins when possible. The reason behind is because of my lack of time, and I'd like to put my undivided attention to errors caused by my own plugins. That said, any modifications you've made to the plugins itself, any custom Lunatic Mode code you've made yourself that isn't provided by me, or problems with the source code will not be supported by me either.


NOTE2: As I've stated before in the previous note, I'll only provide support for my own codes that I, myself, have provided. To make this clear, this means strictly the plugins I've made and any code for Lunatic Mode that I, personally, have provided through Tips & Tricks. I am not responsible for any coding errors, coding roadblocks, or code questions that you come across within your own Lunatic Mode code. Unless the Lunatic Mode notetag itself has a bug, you are to ask your questions here.


NOTE3: However, as an exception to NOTE2, this does not mean I am going to explain to you how to use all the various functions inside of my plugins. If a function added by my plugins is not listed in the Help File, it means I do not deem that function to be used for script calls. Therefore, if you choose a function outside of the ones listed in the help files to use in a script call, I am NOT responsible for it not working properly for you. No script call support will be provided for functions not listed within the help file.


WHY I NEED A CLEAN SAMPLE PROJECT FOR BUG REPORTS:




If you're wondering why I make it an absolute requirement for sample projects containing to be made, it's because in the past, I've chased and hunted bugs that do not exist either because a user had a conflicting error with a non-Yanfly plugin, has not updated the plugins, using the plugin incorrectly, or think something is a bug when it really isn't. The amount of time I've wasted chasing these "bugs" is unfathomable as that time could have been spent developing new content. To mitigate this issue, I made it an absolute requirement for bugs to be reported in such a manner because of the following:

  1. It makes the player go through all of the troubleshooting steps to reduce the amount of user errors. If the user identifies it as a user error, then the user would also have gained troubleshooting skills, which are essential for game development.
  2. Isolate the bugs caused by Yanfly plugins away from non-Yanfly plugins. As stated above, I do not provide support for non-Yanfly plugins due to my lack of time to create compatibility patches for non-Yanfly plugins. Having over 100+ plugins, making a compatibility patch for each one of those with every other plugin out there is absolute insanity.
  3. It shows that the user is serious about getting the bug fixed as I am. Being able to put out time to isolate a problem so it can be fixed means the user is serious about getting their game made. As a user's time is important to them, my time is also important to me, and this is our mutual agreement to get things done cooperatively.



Thank you for understanding.


BASIC TROUBLE SHOOTING




1. Are all your plugins up to date? If they're not, download the updated versions from here: http://yanfly.moe/yep/changelog/


2. Did you rename any of their plugins from their default filenames? If you did, then the plugins won't work. Do NOT rename them.


3. Did you make sure all of the plugins are placed in order as http://yanfly.moe/yep/ inside of the Plugin Manager?


4. When you updated the plugin, did you /open up/ the plugin within the Plugin Manager? 


You are getting the error because you updated the plugin and did not go into the plugin itself like the instructions here in the first video: http://yanfly.moe/yep/changelog/


Why is this important? Because whenever new parameters are added to a plugin upon a new update, you have to enter the plugin in order for the Plugin Manager to add those new parameters into your game. Otherwise, you will get undefined errors and "random" crashes. Skipping that step is not optional and is very crucial to getting updated plugins to work.


5. If you are using non-Yanfly plugins, turn off ALL of the non-Yanfly plugins to see if there are any conflicts.


6. If you are testing your project in Battle Test and aren't seeing any changes made after updating your plugin, make sure you -save- your project. RPG Maker MV does not carry over changes to Battle Test until you save your project.


F.A.Q. ABOUT ATB AND CTB PLUGINS


The ATB and CTB plugins are custom battle systems that do NOT involve a turn-based system that you're used to with the default turn-based battle system (DTB). They function off of a tick-based system, which means it does not work off standard means. This also means you have to adjust either the plugin or your game to fit these means. Here are some frequently reported "issues" with the system. None of these are bugs so do not report them as bugs.

  • If ATB bars are taking too long to fill up, then change your battlers' AGI values to higher or change the plugin parameters to fit your game.
  • If ATB states are dropping in turns too quickly, this is because you didn't adjust the proper state turn settings within the Battle Engine Core to fit your game.
  • For ATB, no, I will NOT make Active Mode. It's not because I can't (I've made it before in VX's Yanfly Engine Melody). It's because RPG Maker MV's code structure for the battle system makes it more likely to break everything if it does so. If this is something you absolutely need, the Plugin Request Forum is your place to visit, if DoubleX RMMV Popularized ATB Core(which is at least compatible with my Battle Engine Core with the compatibility fix) can't meet your demands already.
  • If there is "lag" between CTB turns, this isn't because of the plugin. This is because your low AGI values is making the game go through hundreds to thousands of CTB updates per tick. Once again, either you increase the AGI values or change the plugin parameters to fit your 
  • In CTB, States "skipping" multiple turns when updating isn't a bug. It is because in between the previous battler next battler, there was a huge gap in time, enough to go through two state turn cycles. Adjust the state turn settings within the Battle Engine Core to fit your game.
  • For CTB, no, I will NOT make multiple instances of turn icons appearing for multiple actors. If you want something like that made, you can request it in the Plugin Request Forum.

If all of these issues are beyond you, then I'm afraid the ATB and CTB plugins aren't for you. As a developer, it is your responsibility to understand the plugins and systems you are using. You are not doing your players any favor by using a system that you, yourself, do not fully comprehend. I will not educate anyone how ATB and CTB systems work. My plugins work based on the ATB and CTB systems of existing Final Fantasy games with slight tweaks to fit RPG Maker MV's system. Please study them on your own accord.

Hi Yanfly, 


Using your ATB plugin, how do I make some skills to take longer ticks to charge? 


As far as I understand <ATB Gauge: x> only affects the target hit by the skill, but not the skill itself?

I think that it's possible to do this simply by changing the Invocation Speed of the skill (in the skill's database entry). Try inputting a negative value, and the skill should charge more slowly.

I must have missed the part of the help file that specify this. Lemme give this a try.


EDIT: Nope it doesn't. Welp.

I am very new to RPG Maker, having RPG Maker VX Ace for 3 years and using it once...


...I have however just upgraded to MV and am addicted. I am trying to create farming equipment (a spade/scythe etc) whereby each time you use it to 'farm' the durability of the item goes down.


I have installed this plugin but my JS ability is non existent and I cannot see that this works on events only through battle. Is that correct? Or is there a way to use this plugin to reduce an items durability via an event?


Thanks in advance and loving your plugins beyond words!

Dear Yanfly,


While using "\msgevent" could you make it so, that the window scales to the text(& face gfx)? Or make it optional?


Would be very very much appreciated!! Thanks for your great work!

Actually, I don't think that it's mentioned in the ATB help file at least (if that's what you meant) because it's part of the default RPG Maker MV engine. While I haven't yet tried out negative values, I know that using positive values for the Invocation Speed will make skills faster with both Yanfly's ATB system and the default system (e.g. I have one skill with speed of 2000 which allows it to be cast instantly). I hope that explanation makes sense.


//Edit: Oh, I wasn't aware that negative values had no effect. I will try to test it later when I have time, but that does sound a bit strange or unexpected at least.

Yeah, positive values does seem to quicken the casting, but it seems negative values might have been rounded up into positive integer somewhere within the code?

If I put a negative number in invocation speed, using the CTB battle system, it makes the actor wait several turns before casting the skill (modified by the actual negative value). I don't see why it wouldn't also make the charge time slower on the ATB plugin.

Wait, on a few more testing, yeah, it kinda does takes longer to cast, but I feel like it's not 'long' enough xD 


I was expecting to be able to make like 3-turns length of a charging time.

it can go down to -2000. There might be a way to set it even lower than that using a script call or something.


Sounds like you should use a state instead, one that paralyzes you for x turns and then has a custom remove effect to force an action, or something like that.

Or I could just lengthen the default charging speed, and quicken every other skills then .___. time to F5-Database notebox copypasta spam

Use <speed: +x> or <speed: -x> to bypass the Editor's limit.


Maybe try <speed: -8000> and see if that's long enough.
