Warning for RPG Maker MZ Users


If you are using RPG Maker MZ and VisuStella MZ, the following code may or MAY NOT work as this Tips & Tricks is made for RPG Maker MV. VisuStella MZ is NOT responsible if this Tips & Trick does not work because the code base for RPG Maker MV and RPG Maker MZ are different and the code base between Yanfly Engine Plugins and VisuStella MZ is even more drastically different.


Follow video instructions.

You can grab the copy/paste code here:

Place these notetags inside of the notebox of any skill you wish to allow to be converted into HP cost. Change the values to fit the settings of your game!

<Custom MP Cost>
// Check if the user is affected by Blood Magic.
if (user.isStateAffected(154)) {
  // If the user is, set the MP cost to 0.
  cost = 0;
</Custom MP Cost>

<Custom HP Cost>
// Check if the user is affected by Blood Magic.
if (user.isStateAffected(154)) {
  // If the user is, raise the cost by twice the MP Cost.
  cost += skill.mpCost * 2;
</Custom HP Cost>

Happy converting!
