Today’s Tips & Tricks is a continuation of yesterday’s! Where barrier points were converted into HP healing yesterday, today we’ll look at barrier points being converted into MP damage! Slightly tweaked from StarCraft’s EMP Shockwave, we’ll be making a skill that deals MP damage based on half of the barrier points removed!

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.

<After Eval>
// Get the target's total barrier points.
var barrier = target.barrierPoints();
// Make the target lose those barrier points.
// Calculate the MP removed based on the barrier points.
var mploss = Math.ceil(barrier * 0.50);
// Make the target lose that MP.
// Play a damage popup.
// Clear the target's results.
