Action Sequences - ala Melody

Battle Engine Core includes Yanfly Engine Melody's Battle Engine system, where each individual aspect of the skill and item effects can be controlled to a degree. These are called Action Sequences, where each command in the action sequence causes the game to perform a distinct individual action.

Each skill and item consists of five different action sequences. They are as follows:

1. Setup Actions
They prepare the active battler before carrying out the bulk of the action

and its individual effects. Usually what you see here are things such as the active battler moving forward a bit, unsheathing their weapon, etc. This step will occur before the active battler expends their skill or item costs.

2. Whole Actions
These actions will affect all of the targets simultaneously. Although this

section does not need to be used, most actions will use this for displaying animations upon all enemies. This step occurs after skill and item costs.

3. Target Actions
This section will affect all of the targets individually. Used primarily

for physical attacks that will deliver more personal forms of damage. Actions that occur here will not affect other targets unless specifically ordered to do so otherwise.

4. Follow Actions
This section will dedicate towards cleanup work after the individual

targeting actions. Here, it'll do things such as removing immortal flags, start up common events, and more.

5. Finish Actions
This section will have the active battler close up the action sequence.

Usually stuff like running waits and holds at the last minute for skills and items, moving back to place, and others.

Now that you know each of the five steps each action sequence goes through, here's the tags you can insert inside of skills and items. Pay attention to each tag name.

1. <setup action>
    action list
    action list
   </setup action>

2. <whole action>
    action list  
    action list  
   </whole action>

3. <target action>
    action list
    action list
   </target action>

4. <follow action>
    action list
    action list
   </follow action>

5. <finish action>
    action list
    action list
   </finish action>

They will do their own respective action sets. The methods to insert for the action list can be found below in the core of the Help Manual.

Furthermore, to prevent overflooding every single one of your database item's noteboxes with action sequence lists, there's a shortcut you can take to copy all of the setup actions, whole actions, target actions, follow actions, and finish actions with just one line.

<action copy: x:y>

Replace x with "item" or "skill" to set the type for the action list code to directly copy. The integer y is then the ID assigned for that particular object type. For example, to copy 45th skill's action sequences, the code would be <action copy: skill:45> for anything that will accept these action codes. If you do use this notetag, it will take priority over any custom that you've placed in the notebox.

Target Typing

You may notice that in some of the actions below will say "refer to target typing" which is this section right here. Here's a quick run down on the various targets you may select.

user This will select the active battler.
target, targets These will select the active targets in question.
actors, existing actors These will select all living actors.
all actors This will select all actors including dead ones.
dead actors This will select only dead actors.

character x This will select the specific character with actor ID x.
enemies, existing enemies This will select all living enemies.
all enemies This will select all enemies, even dead.
dead enemies This will select only dead enemies.

prev target Requires Action Sequence Impact.

During <Target Actions>, this will get the previous target in the targets list.

next target Requires Action Sequence Impact.

During <Target Actions>, this will get the next target in the targets list.

Action Sequence Pack 1


The following contains a list of the actions you can use inside the five
action sequences. Each action has a unique function and requires certain
formats to operate properly.

=============================================================================
ACTION ANIMATION: (target), (mirror)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Plays the animation assigned to the skill/item. The animation will
automatically select the skill's/item's assigned targets. If 'target' is
used, it will specify a target to play the animation on. If 'mirror' is
used, it will mirror the animation.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: action animation
               action animation: target
               action animation: user, mirror
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ACTION COMMON EVENT
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Plays the common event found within the skill's/item's traits list. This
will only play the last common event on the list, following the game
engine's original process. Nothing else will continue on the action list
until the common event is finished (unless it is a forced action, in which
case, it will wait until the action is complete first).
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: action common event
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ACTION EFFECT: target
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Causes the target(s) to take damage/healing from the skill/item and
incurs any changes made to the target(s) such as buffs and states.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: action effect
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ADD stat BUFF: target, (turns), (show)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Affects the target with 'stat' buff. Replace 'stat' with 'hp', 'mp', 'atk',
'def', 'mat', 'mdf', 'agi', or 'luk'. If you include a number after the
target, it will buff the target by that many turns. Include 'show' and it
will show the target getting the buff applied in the battle log.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: add atk buff: user, 3, show
               add def buff: target, 8
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ADD stat DEBUFF: target, (turns), (show)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Affects the target with 'stat' debuff. Replace 'stat' with 'hp', 'mp',
'atk', 'def', 'mat', 'mdf', 'agi', or 'luk'. If you include a number after
the target, it will debuff the target by that many turns. Include 'show' and
it will show the target getting the debuff applied in the battle log.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: add atk debuff: user, 3, show
               add def debuff: target, 8
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ADD STATE X: target, (show)
ADD STATE X, Y, Z: target (show)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Affects the target with X state (including Y and Z if used in that format).
If 'show' is included, it will display any state related messages.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: add state 5: target
               add state 6, 7, 8: user, show
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ANIMATION X: target, (mirror)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Plays animation X on target. 'Mirror' will cause the animation to appear
mirrored. Keep in mind that animations played on actors will automatically
be mirrored and setting the mirror option will reverse it and have it appear
unmirrored.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: animation 5: user
               animation 6: target, mirror
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ANIMATION WAIT: X
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Waits x animaiton frames. Each frame for an animation does not last one game
frame, but instead, several. To make life easier, you can use this to have
the game wait x frames played for the animation.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: animation 5: user
               animation 6: target, mirror
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
BGM: STOP
BGM: MEMORIZE
BGM: MEMORY
BGM: filename, (volume), (pitch), (pan)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Changes the current background music at hand. 'Stop' will stop any BGM from
playing. 'Memorize' will memorize the current BGM. 'Memory' will replay the
memorized BGM if there is one playing. If you choose a filename (without the
filename extensions), the game will play that BGM instead. Using this
option opens up access to the volume, pitch, and pan control, all of which
are optional to use. If no values are inputed for volume, pitch, and pan,
the game will use the settings in this plugin's parameters.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: bgm: stop
               bgm: memorize
               bgm: memory
               bgm: Battle7

BGS: MEMORY
BGS: filename, (volume), (pitch), (pan)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Changes the current background sound at hand. 'Stop' will stop any BGS from
playing. 'Memorize' will memorize the current BGS. 'Memory' will replay the
memorized BGS if there is one playing. If you choose a filename (without the
filename extensions), the game will play that BGS instead. Using this
option opens up access to the volume, pitch, and pan control, all of which
are optional to use. If no values are inputed for volume, pitch, and pan,
the game will use the settings in this plugin's parameters.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: bgs: stop
               bgs: memorize

BREAK ACTION
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This will force the remainder of the action sequences for the part of the
skill/item to shut down and be skipped.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: break action

=============================================================================

=============================================================================
CHANGE SWITCH X: on/off/toggle/switch z
CHANGE SWITCH X..Y: on/off/toggle/switch z
CHANGE SWITCH X TO Y: on/off/toggle/switch z
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Changes Game Switch X to on, off, toggle (switching between on/off), or
to whatever value the switch y is.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

COLLAPSE: target, (force)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If the target is to be dead at this point, this will be the point in the
action sequence where you can promt the game to kill the target as long
as the target has 0 HP. If you want to force the death of the target,
include the 'force' command after the targets.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: collapse: user
               collapse: target, force

Usage Example: common event: 1
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
DEATH BREAK
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If a user were to die for any reason during the middle of the skill
(either via counter attack or reflection), this will force the remainder
of the action sequences for the part of the skill/item to shut down and
be skipped.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: death break
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
DISPLAY ACTION
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Displays the action's name at the top of the battle log. It will remain
there until the battle log is cleared.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: display action
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
EVAL: code
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
For those who'd like to do something that the current Battle Engine doesn't
support, you can use an eval function to have a piece of code occur. Users
beware, for those unfamiliar with JavaScript should avoid handling this
action sequence command.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: eval: $gameParty.loseItem($dataItems[3], 10)
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
GAIN ITEM X: Y           LOSE ITEM X: Y
GAIN WEAPON X: Y         LOSE WEAPON X: Y
GAIN ARMOR X: Y          LOSE ARMOR X: Y
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Your party will gain/lose item x, weapon x, or armor x in the amount of
y. If you choose to omit y, it will default to 1.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: gain item 1: 20
               lose weapon 2
               gain armor 3: 50
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
GOLD +x
GOLD -x
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Your party will gain/lose gold in the middle of battle by x amount.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: gold +2000
               gold -500
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
IF ... ELSE STATEMENTS
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
For those familiar with programming, you can use if...else statements to
perform different actions based on different conditions. Use 'if' to
specify a block of code to be executed, if a specified condition is true.
Use 'else'  to specify a block of code to be executed, if the same
condition is false. Use 'else if' to specify a new condition to test, if
the first condition is false. Use 'end' to specify where the conditions
are to end.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example:
    if $gameSwitches.value(1)
        action effect
    else if $gameSwitches.value(2)
        action effect
        action effect
    else
        action effect
        action effect
        action effect
    end

*Note: You do not have to indent the code in between to work. It just
looks better that way in your action sequences.
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
IMMORTAL: targets, true/false
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

               hp -variable 7: user
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ME: STOP
ME: filename, (volume), (pitch), (pan)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Causes the battle to play a music fanfare. 'Stop' will stop any ME from
playing. If you choose a filename (without the filename extensions), the
game will play that ME instead. Using this option opens up access to the
volume, pitch, and pan control, all of which are optional to use. If no
values are inputed for volume, pitch, and pan, the game will use the
settings in this plugin's parameters.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: me: stop
               me: Victory1

MOTION WAIT: target
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Makes the game wait 12 frames if the target(s) performing the action is an
actor. If the target(s) is not an actor, no waiting will be done.

MP +VARIABLE X%: target, (show)
MP -VARIABLE X%: target, (show)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Target(s) gains MP equal to X values. To show the popup, insert 'show'
after the target in the action sequence line. Including 'show' is
entirely optional. If 'show' is omitted, no popup will be displayed.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: mp +500: user
               mp -variable 5: target

Causes the battle to play a Sound Effect. If you choose a filename (without
the filename extensions), the game will play that ME instead. Using this
option opens up access to the volume, pitch, and pan control, all of which
are optional to use. If no values are inputed for volume, pitch, and pan,
the game will use the settings in this plugin's parameters. Using the action
sequences with 'play x' in them will cause the game to play a system sound
set within RPG Maker's database.

Action Sequence Pack 2


The following contains a list of the actions you can use inside the five
action sequences. Each action has a unique function and requires certain
formats to operate properly.

=============================================================================
ATTACK ANIMATION: target, (mirror)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Displays the active battler's attack animation on the target(s). This will
be the animation determined by the actor's weapon(s). If it's an enemy, it
will be determined by the enemy's attack animation. If 'mirror' is used,
the animation will be flipped.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: attack animation: target
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
ENEMY EFFECT: target, effect-type
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This affects enemies only. Makes the target display either a 'whiten' effect
or a 'blink' effect.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: enemy effect: targets, whiten
               enemy effect: targets, blink
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
FACE target: args
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
FACE target1: FORWARD
FACE target1: BACKWARD
FACE target1: HOME
FACE target1: AWAY FROM HOME
FACE target1: POINT, x coordinate, y coordinate
FACE target1: AWAY FROM POINT, x coordinate, y coordinate
FACE target1: target2
FACE target1: AWAY FROM target2
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This will cause the battler to face a certain direction. Arguments can be
used in the above formats. This action sequence command will cause target1
to face any of those directions. If target2 is used, then target1 will face
directions relative to target2.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: face user: forward
               face target: backward
               face enemies: home
               face allies: away from home
               face target: point, 20, 40
               face target: away from point, 500, 600
               face user: target
               face target: away from user

FADE OUT: (frames)
FADE IN: (frames)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Fades the screen out and fades the screen in respectively. You can set the
amount of frames for the fading process. If you omit frames, 60 frames will
be used by default.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: fade out
               fade in: 10

FLASH SCREEN: BLUE, (frames)
FLASH SCREEN: PURPLE, (frames)
FLASH SCREEN: MAGENTA, (frames)
FLASH SCREEN: BLACK, (frames)
FLASH SCREEN: (red), (green), (blue), (intensity), (frames)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Causes the game screen to flash a set color. If for the arguments, you use a
color name, it will use a premade flash setting. If you choose to use your
own settings, use the red, green, blue, intensity format to determine what
color flash you would like. Red, green, blue, and intensity settings range
from 0 to 255. If frames are used, that will be the duration of the screen
flash. If omitted, the default frame count will be 60 frames.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: flash screen: white
               flash screen: red, 45
               flash screen: 128, 170, 214, 170
               flash screen: 68, 68, 68, 170, 45
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
FLOAT target: (height), (frames)
FLOAT target: (height%), (frames)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Causes the target to float into the air above the ground by height%. The
height is relative to the floating target. Using 100% means the target will
float above the ground 100% higher than its height. If no '%' sign is used,
the target will float that many pixels rather than a percentage of the
target's height. The frames determine how many frames it will take for the
target to reach that height. Using 0% for the height will bring the target
back to the ground.
Note: Floating only works with Sideview.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: float user: 200%
               float enemies: 500, 30
               float target: 0%, 30
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
HIDE BATTLE HUD
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hides the battle hud to not obstruct any animations being played. You
can reveal the battle hud again using 'show battle hud'.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: hide battle hud
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
JUMP target: (height), (frames)
JUMP target: (height%), (frames)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Causes the target to jump a height relative to the target itself. If the
target jumps a height of 200%, the height will be 200% of the target's
height. If no '%' sign is used, the target will jump that many pixels rather
than a percentage of the target's height. The frame count is how long the
target will be in the air. You can use this with the 'Move' action sequence
to make the target appear like it is jumping a distance.
Note: Jumping only works with Sideview.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: jump user: 150%
               jump target: 300, 60
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
MOTION type: target, (no weapon)

MOTION DEAD: target
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Forces the target to perform the specific type of action in sideview. If you
issue an action sequence command for the target to perform 'attack', the
target will automatically determine based on the weapon it has equipped to
use either a thrust, swing, or missile motion. Attack, thrust, swing, and
missile will also display the target's weapon if the target has one.

If 'no weapon' is used after the target, no weapons will be displayed. This
effect will only work with the Thrust, Swing, and Missile motions.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: motion walk: user
               motion thrust: user, no weapon
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
MOVE target: args
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
MOVE target1: HOME, (frames)
MOVE target1: RETURN, (frames)
MOVE target1: FORWARD, (distance), (frames)
MOVE target1: BACKWARD, (distance), (frames)
MOVE target1: POINT, x coordinate, y coordinate, (frames)
MOVE target1: target2, BASE, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, CENTER, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, HEAD, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, FRONT BASE, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, FRONT CENTER, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, FRONT HEAD, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, BACK BASE, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, BACK CENTER, (frames), (offset)
MOVE target1: target2, BACK HEAD, (frames), (offset)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This is a move command. Arguments can be used in the above formats. This
action sequence command will move target1 to any of those locations listed
in the arguments. If it's towards target2, you must include what location
relative to target2 for target1 to travel to.
Note: Moving only works with Sideview.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You may be curious about the optional (offset) argument there for some of
the entries. You can insert any of the below arguments in place of (offset):

  offset x +100
  offset x -200
  offset y +300
  offset y -400

This will allow you to offset the distance to the destination by a flat
amount. Positive numbers would indicate forward while negative numbers will
indicate backward.

  auto offset x +500
  auto offset x -600

However, if you use either of the above, depending on if the user is an
actor or enemy and depending on the target (if there is one) is an actor or
an enemy, it will move them into position accordingly.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: move user: home, 20
               move target: forward, 48, 12
               move enemy 1: point, 400, 300
               move enemy 2: point, 500, 250, offset x -50, offset y -50
               move actor 3: target, front base, 20
               move user: target, front base, 20, auto offset x -100
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
OPACITY target: x, (frames)
OPACITY target: x%, (frames)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Changes the opacity of the target to x (0-255) or x% (0% to 100%). If you
use 'frames', that will be the frame duration for the change in opacity for
the target.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: opacity user: 50%, 30
               opacity not focus: 0
=============================================================================

Action Sequence Pack 3


The following contains a list of the actions you can use inside the five
action sequences. Each action has a unique function and requires certain
formats to operate properly.

=============================================================================
CAMERA CLAMP ON
CAMERA CLAMP OFF
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
By default, the camera clamp is on, which forces the camera to never pan
outside of the battlefield's boundaries. However, in the event you wish to
turn this off, use 'camera clamp off' to shut off the clamp. The clamp,
however, will be turned back on at the end of each 'perform finish' action.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: camera clamp on
               camera clamp off

Action Sequence Impact

Prev Target, Next Target

Before I begin on the Action Sequences, I want to say there's two new additions to the targeting mechanism. You know the parts where you put in "user" or "targets"? Now, during the <Target Actions> phase, you can use either "Prev Target" or "Next Target" to grab either the previous one or the next target in the list.

Move Offset

=============================================================================
MOVE target OFFSET: +X, +Y
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Use this after a Move Action Sequence. This lets you adjust the movement
location goal of the target by +x and +y. You can use negative numbers, too.
A positive number will mean further past the goal. A negative number means
before the goal. This is done this way to not have absolutes making tricky
calculations depending on which way the battler is facing
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: move user offset: +100, +0

Replace id with either the icon index or the battle animation graphic you
want to use with the projectile. Choose a starting X and Y position or link
it to a target. Then choose a goal X and Y position or link that to a target
too. The rest of the parameters are optional and can be used in any order
you want, but I'll go through each of them.

If the starting targets have more than one member in them, projectiles will
be spawned from each target as a source. If the goal targets have more than
one member, projectiles will be made for each target. This means for each
source and each goal, a projectile will be made.

Duration: replace the d with the number of frames of duration. Default: 20
Arc: replace the a with the maximum arc height in pixels
Ease: replace type with an easing type from the Move Type list above
Spin: replace s with how fast you want the projectile to spin.
Icon Scale: replce i with the scale you want to increase your icons by
Angle: If you want the projectile to "arrow head" towards its goal, use this
Start Offset: lets you adjust the x and y offset of the starting position
Goal Offset: lets you adjust the x and y offset of the goal position

You can use as many projectiles on the screen at once as you want.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Usage Example: projectile icon 161: start user, goal target

Unison Attack

Before I begin on the Action Sequences, I want to say there's two new additions to the targeting mechanism. You know the parts where you put in "user" or "targets"? There are new target typings to choose from.

  $UnisonMember1
  - Selects the first participating member of a Unison Attack. This will be
  the skill user whose using the first listed skill in <Unison Skill: x>
  notetag list.
  $UnisonMember2
  - Selects the 2nd participating member of a Unison Attack. This will be
  the skill user whose using the 2nd listed skill in <Unison Skill: x>
  notetag list.
  $UnisonMember3
  - Selects the 3rd participating member of a Unison Attack. This will be
  the skill user whose using the 3rd listed skill in <Unison Skill: x>
  notetag list.
  $UnisonMember4
  - Selects the 4th participating member of a Unison Attack. This will be
  the skill user whose using the 4th listed skill in <Unison Skill: x>
  notetag list.

And so on...

  $UnisonMembers
  - Selects all participating members of a Unison Attack.

Weapon Swap System

If you are using YEP Battle Engine Core, there is an action sequence that lets you switch weapons for the actor in the middle of an action sequence:

Weapon Swap: targets, x
or
Weapon Swap: targets, text
or
Swap Weapon: targets, x
or
Swap Weapon: targets, text

Use x with the weapon type ID in the Database Type tab. Or use text and replace it with the name of the weapon type. If you use the name of the weapon type, type it out exactly as it is spelled because it is case sensitive.

Weather In Battle
