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.


Follow video instructions.

You can get the copy and paste code here:

<Custom React Effect>
// Check to see if the party is in battle.
if ($gameParty.inBattle()) {
  // Sets the flag if the target has more than 1 HP at the time of death.
  target._secondChance = target.hp > 1;
</Custom React Effect>

<Custom Respond Effect>
// Check to see if the party is in battle, has the Second Chance flag, and if the target is dead with 0 HP.
if ($gameParty.inBattle() && target._secondChance && target.hp <= 0) {
  // Play the revival animation.
  // Set the target's HP to 1.
</Custom Respond Effect>

Enjoy surviving those fatal blows!
