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.

Insert the following Lunatic Mode code in your Cup of Life passive state’s notebox. Change the value to reflect the settings of your game.

<Custom Confirm Effect>
// Get the current HP difference between the target's MaxHP and HP
var hpdiff = target.mhp - target.hp;
// Check if the target is alive and receiving HP healing and if the difference for the healing is greater than the target's HP difference
if (this.isHpEffect() && target.isAlive() && value < 0 && (Math.abs(value) > hpdiff)) {
  // Calculate the difference between the target's HP difference and the healing to be received
  var difference = Math.abs(value) - hpdiff;
  // Reduce the healing by the amount
  value = -hpdiff;
  // Make the caster gain the difference in healing
  // Make a damage popup
  // Clear the user's results
  // Start an animation on the user
