Introduction

This plugin by itself will not change any major game functions, but instead,
it works in combination with other plugins that make use of this plugin's
functions should you decide to incorporate Job Points into your game.

When Job Points are earned, they are given to the actor's current class. If
the actor were to switch classes, then the Job Points will be changed to
that class's Job Points until reverted back.

Victory Aftermath Compatibility

If you have the YEP_VictoryAftermath plugin installed and wish to make use
of the JP windows, position this plugin lower than YEP_VictoryAftermath in
the Plugin Manager.

After that, if you wish to define the timing of the JP window to appear at
a certain point instead of the plugin doing it automatically, insert "JP" in
the "Victory Order" parameter within Victory Aftermath where you want the
JP window to appear.

Notetags

NotetagsMV.png

RPG Maker MV's editor is unable to allow for custom traits/properties that a game dev may wish to associate with a database object, event, map, etc. Notetags are used to work around such limitations by allowing the game dev to tag certain traits/properties using specific Notetags declared by the related plugin.

Here is a list of Notetag(s) that you may use.

Here are some notetags related to Job Points.

Actor Notetags
  <Starting JP: x>
  Sets the actor's starting JP value to be x for the actor's initial class.

  <Class x Starting JP: y>
  Sets the actor's starting JP value for class x to be y.

  <JP Rate: x%>
  This changes the rate of JP gained by x%. By default, all objects have a
  default rate of 100%. Increasing this to 200% will increase JP gained by
  twice as much while 50% will halve the amount of JP gained.

Skill and Item Notetags
  <JP Gain: x>
  This makes it so that the actor using this skill or item will gain x
  amount of JP instead of the default amount of JP found in the parameters.

  <Target JP Gain: x>
  This makes it so that the target actor affected by this skill or item will
  gain x amount of JP.

Class, Weapon, Armor, and State Notetag
  <JP Rate: x%>
  This changes the rate of JP gained by x%. By default, all objects have a
  default rate of 100%. Increasing this to 200% will increase JP gained by
  twice as much while 50% will halve the amount of JP gained.

Enemy Notetag
  <JP: x>
  When the enemy is defeated, the party members present will gain x JP each.
