I've noticed that the <disperse damage> tag from YEP_Target Core is not spliting healing effects.
Was it intended?


Um...So...  I'm a little confused by this considering healing does work with dispersion (see the tutorial video).


Perhaps you don't have YEP_X_SelectionControl enabled, which is the plug-in that actually adds that functionality, or you're not using the case sensitive spelling <Disperse Damage>, or make sure that the skill in question also has a <Single or Multiple Select> tag as that is used in conjunction with the <Disperse Damage> tag.


If the problem still occurs, create a new project with just the necessary plug-ins and test it. If it still isn't working:

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. 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.


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.

I'm fairly certain I found a bug in the steal and snatch plugin.


Plugin Name: YEP_StealSNatch


Bug Explanation: The <Steal Rate: +x%> note tag has no effect on gold or item stealing, possibly weapon and armor too.


Error Report: N/A


Exact Steps on How to Replicate Bug:

  • Make an enemy with a low gold or item steal rate (25%)
  • Add <Steal Gold>, <Steal Item>, or <Steal> to the default attack skill
  • Add a notetag <Steal Rate: +75%> to your actor
  • Do a test battle with the enemy you made.
  • Note that despite the fact that the steal rate + and the gold steal note tag on the enemy add up to 100% you will still fail to steal most of the time.
  • Change the <Steal Rate: 75%> to <Steal Gold Rate: 75%>
  • Do the test battle again and note that the steal doesn't fail.

Sample Project (REQUIRED): stealissue.zip


I also tried with a giant bonus value of 1000%, and it had the same effect as if there were no bonus at all.

I actually am using those tags:
 


<Single or Multiple Select>


<Disperse Damage>


<Actor or EnemySelect>

The  YEP_X_SelectionControl is active, maybe i'll need to look further.

Shouldn't there be a space between enemy and select?

My skill costs 1 tp (inquina) and applies a state that costs 1 tp each turn maintained.


I used the Custom Cost Display to show this, but the custom text is higher than the normal cost.


This is the custom text:


\}\C[30]1 Inquina cada turno


Maybe I missed something?

You're not. That actually has more to do with the way RPG Maker MV draws text with font changes. :/ When drawing text, the y coordinate is based on the upper left corner of the text, which means if the font shrinks, it will naturally go upward. If anything, I can make some textcodes that shift text upward and downward by a few pixels since I do find this problematic as well.


EDIT: Huh, apparently, this is a bug inherent within MV itself. It's due to the way font height and shifts are calculated. I'll have to look deeper into this.

I'm going to point out a few things of note in this bug report for your benefit, despite not being able to speak for Yanfly who has a much better grasp on how this all works, but in relation to your bug report, and you/Yanfly can correct me if I'm wrong:


Other than the Core Engine fixing tile tearing, I'm not sure that it is the cause, however, that being said, you are also using VE (Victor Engine?) plugins? This may be a compatibility issue, which is outside of Yanfly's hands, to quote Yanfly (despite what the quote box says):

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.






In regards to your not having dropbox, you can make one, or use another one of the hundreds of file sharing services out there such as Google Drive. The Sample Project is an absolute must have (hence the REQUIRED) in ensuring the way the bug is handled.

I don't think it's a bug per se...  but the Comment Box isn't big enough to fit the Eval codes from the Help File, or at least mine aren't.





The second image was my attempt to fix the problem by finishing the Eval in a second Comment.  Did I do something wrong?


Also, is this the thread to ask questions about the plugins that are not related to the Action Sequences?  Like how do you make the menu like the one in Yanfly's video for the CEM2?  The one where the menu has an outline look to it...  I don't have a screenshot, but I think that's a good description.


Is there a group of people out there that can help noobs and lost lambs around the plugins and their lunatic modes.  Maybe show some examples with pictures?  I learn faster and easier with visual cues....  The video's for the CEM don't go into specifics and pretty much just expect you to trial and error the hell out of it until you get the desired effect, but it I still have no clue how to work this plugin at all....  though I can get a basic looking menu going, it would be nice to have a few tips or tricks to help.


So, other than the Action Sequence Thread, is there a thread where I can go and ask my many questions?  Or maybe get a few tips and tricks for some of the different plugins?

To answer your question, yes, you do put them in a second Comment Box. I, myself, was initially quite confused by that as well, but finishing it in a second box worked for me.

To answer the general question here, yes, there is a place to ask such questions, such as the Plug-in Support Forum. Just start a new thread there.


In relation to help with Lunatic Mode aid, the Support Forum really is the place to go, but I wouldn't mind taking a crack at whipping up some sort of deeper tutorial for that to keep Yanfly's plate a little emptier for their benefit.

How did you get it to work?  I get an error when I did it.  Maybe a quick screenshot of your event script?

I was actually thinking something like the tips and tricks.... I hate asking questions since it takes soo long for anyone to answer them [if they even answer them, I have a question or two that are completely unanswered to this day].  But if there were maybe a few tips and tricks or some tutorials on the more complex and advanced ways to use Yanfly's plugins then I could work out how do what I want myself.  That's what I'd really like to do.

In relation to help with Lunatic Mode aid, the Support Forum really is the place to go, but I wouldn't mind taking a crack at whipping up some sort of deeper tutorial for that to keep Yanfly's plate a little emptier for their benefit.
That would be awesome thanks....  Like i said, I'm a visual learner [I'm sure I'm not the only one], so screenshots or video tutorials are my bread and butter.  Someone can type out a complete manual for this, details in all, but without a visual cue [screenshots or the like] then I'll be more lost than a blind man in a maze.  Just FYI.

I'll see what I can do, but (as much as I wish I could say otherwise) no guarantees.


This'll be a learning experience for me, as well. Being a hands-on guy, myself.

It's not a bug at all but I need help with the auto passive state plugin.


I want to know how to write a lunatic effect to check if a state is on (example : if I get poisoned, then my auto state activates).


I'd also like to know how to set it up so that the auto state applies when using a certain skill (example : I use skill number 41, and the auto state triggers).


Also : is it possible that when they apply on certain conditions, they can still disappear after a few turns or will they stay ?


On VX ace, I used a script by victor sant that had almost the same name (state auto apply) and that was very nice to do all that.


If anyone can help me, a big thank you !

I look forward to watching or reading the tutorials...  Thanks, they'll come in handy.


BTW:  As a pure shot in the dark I got the Comment thing to work for me...  in one comment box.

<Menu Enable Eval>


if ($gameSwitches.value(19)) {


enabled = true;


} else {


enabled = false; }


</Menu Enable Eval>
I put the ending tag [usually it's on it's own line] at the end of the last line after the semi-colon.  This frees up a space for the "<>" tag and it still works.


I didn't think it would work, but I was frustrated that nothing else did...  Glad that part is over.

Oh! I'm pretty sure this is the problem I'm having, too. However the latest update today doesn't seem to fix it.
Seemingly random text objects in my game display at the wrong heights in a similar way to this, it's very frustrating.
(I wasn't going to post about this here as I'm not sure if it's to do with a Yanfly script or just an inherent MV thing, but this post seems to be the same issue)

To see if a certain character has a state applied you can use this (there's probably a better way, this is just what I found mozying through code at 1 AM):

Code:
<Custom Passive Condition>
condition = false;
user.states().forEach(function(state) {
if (state.id === X) { condition = true; }
}, user);
</Custom Passive Condition>
Just replace the X with the State ID of your Poisoned state.


As to your second question, you (as far as I know) can't apply a passive state on the use of a skill, as that would kind of defeat the purpose of it being Auto and Passive...


Putting the notetag on a skill will cause any battler's that know the skill to have the State applied assuming the conditions are met.


As to your third question, no, but technically yes. Assigning a "Turn End" removal to a state (theoretically) makes it disappear, but the system simply reapplies it so long as the conditions are still met.


EDIT: With the Skills & Buffs Core you can, however, just setup another condition (like a switch) that turns it off and on. There are always workarounds, but I assumed you were looking for basic functionality.

In looking at this image, it looks like you're using the wrong end tag. <Menu Enable Eval> appears to be at the start, and </Menu Visible Eval> appears to be at the end.


That being said, here's an example of my code that uses two, unseparated boxes, (and yes, it works) :





I also have done one that was a single line, all the code going horizontal. Both work.
