  1. I really appreciate this. I generally make a list like this for every script I’m using so I can print it out and save time going back and forth between the script editor and database.

  2. Maybe i’m in the wrong place(but i’m sure of it!), but i need some help! HOW I INSTALL THESE RB FILES??? I can’t open then and projects don’t use these files like that…so…how i will put all those scripts on my VX Ace?

  3. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I’m still a noob at scripting and using rpg maker.

    I was wondering, is it possible to put some kind of condition on a notetag?
    For example: using your Free Turn Battle script, I would like one of my character to increase his number of ftb actions as he level up. I would make him start with two ftb actions at level 1, so I would put this tag in the note section of the character. But when he would reach level 10, I would like him to have 3 ftb actions instead of two. Is there a way to put such a condition on a notetag?

  4. Got them in and in order, but when I run my game I get a Stack Error. Going to try starting a new project and trying again. Maybe I have an old revision or something, or something else I did somewhere else is interfering. If that doesn’t work, are there any suggestions? Seems like all of these scripts are something I’d like in my game.

  5. Ok, Yanfly (Or whomever is managing the site at the moment), I’m having a difficulty on my items. I’m asking for one request, and it’s because I can’t find my solution anywhere on this site, so if you could direct me to some knowledge, or make a new script (I know it must be a hassle, that’s why I’m asking for knowledge). Ok (sorry long introduction), so I want to make my items give me more than the default max hp/mp ect. when it heals me, I’ve looked for notetags for almost two hours and I can’t find it programmed into any of the scripts you have posted. I don’t like using percentages on the items I’m currently making for my game (Which could be an easy fix but I want specific parameters because percentages feel sloppy and the users never get a gist of how much they recover when using this…) My game is massive at this point and I’m trying to add a lot of items at this point that would be beneficial for the people that want to play the game. When max hp is at 99,999 you need bigger recovery items… I’ve thought about having the potions having a effect that goes for several turns, but when you need to be healed immediately and are in trouble of dying, it’s nice to have an item that recovers a good amount so you feel safer… I think if you added a script for future users (like myself, and a few friends of mine) it would help with a lot of pain and moving on with the story. Thanks a ton.

  6. Looks like theres alot over there. Still trying to work each of these scripts out but ones i’ve got working are making my battle system look good and paticulary with the holders animated battlers (with the content i got from victor who I have told what I think)
