You can grab the copy/paste code here:

Place the following code into your No Kill Like Overkill Skill. Change the values to fit your game’s settings.
<Pre-Damage Eval>
// Get the target's current HP.
target._currentHp = target.hp;
</Pre-Damage Eval>

<Post-Damage Eval>
// Check if the target's current HP was positive and is now 0 or lower.
if (target._currentHp && target.hp <= 0) {
  // If it is, calculate the different between the damage dealt and the former current HP.
  var dmg = target.result().hpDamage - target._currentHp;
  // If the damage value was greater than zero...
  if (dmg > 0) {
    // Then declare the Overkill State ID.
    var overkillStateId = 152;
    // Add the state to the user.
    // Set the user's overkill damage bonus to the damage difference.
    user._overkillBonus = dmg;
    // Play an animation on the user.
target._currentHp = undefined;
</Post-Damage Eval>
Place the following code into your Overkill state’s notebox. Change the values to fit your game’s settings.
<Custom Confirm Effect>
// Check if the action deals damage to HP.
if (this.isHpEffect() && value > 0) {
  // Default the overkill bonus to 0 if it doesn't exist.
  user._overkillBonus = user._overkillBonus || 0;
  // Add the overkill damage bonus to the current damage. It will cap at 5 times the damage dealt.
  value += Math.min(value * 5, user._overkillBonus);
  // Play an extra animation on the target.
</Custom Confirm Effect>

Happy overkilling!
