Evolution Matrix Skills VisuStella MZ

Version 1.05: October 12, 2023

  • Documentation Update:
    • Help file updated for new features.
    • Added "VisuMZ_3_SkillCooldowns" to "VisuStella MZ Compatibility" in help.
      • When using skills with cooldowns through the Evolution Skill Matrix, you may have noticed that the cooldowns may seemingly have -1 less turn. The reason is because the actor's skills may have gone through a cooldown update before the next instance of the Evolution Skill Matrix appears. It is more noticeable when using <Cooldown: 1> with 1 turn.
      • Normally, upon regular input for selecting skills normally, the actor does not go through the second cooldown update so a skill with <Cooldown: 1> does have its effect "immediately" reduced.
      • To remedy this, adjust the Plugin Parameter "Adjust Cooldowns" to alter how many extra turns should be applied to cooldowns when used through the skill matrix. We recommend +1.
  • New Features!
    • New Plugin Parameter added by Irina:
      • Compatibility > Adjust Cooldowns:
        • Adjust any newly applied cooldowns by this much when used through the matrix.

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for <Undead> notetag.
      • If the battler is the target of an elemental attack and the battler would absorb that element, the target will bypass the undead effect and recovers HP instead. Now your zombies can absorb "Darkness" elements.

If the game dev has set the switch ON, and then the player has enabled that challenge entry, the game dev can no longer set the switch to OFF until the player has set the entry to off. This is to prevent the player from getting confused as to why the challenge entry is suddenly disabled without their knowledge.
      • If the player sets the switch to OFF and then the game dev sets the required switch to OFF, then the effect can be turned off properly in the Challenge System menu and hidden from accessibility.

Equip Battle Skills VisuStella MZ

Version 1.02: August 17, 2023

  • Documentation Update!
    • Explanation for Battle Command > Skill Types Substitute updated.
      • If an actor uses equipped battle skills, skill types added by the Battle Command 'skills' will be substituted for a single category, 'battle skills'. Here, only the equipped skills for battle will be listed.
      • However, any uses of 'SType: x' or 'SType: name' will still enable those specific skill types to be fully usable. This is also how to imitate Yanfly Engine Plugins' version of "Allowed Types" for Equip Battle Skills.
      • This does NOT mean that if you use 'SType: x' that only the equipped skills will appear in there and the non-equipped skills will be unavailable. This means that for 'SType: x' skill access, ALL of the skills for that skill type linked to the actor will become available regardless of what is equipped for the battle skills or not.

Core Engine VisuStella MZ

Version 1.72: December 15, 2022

  • Bug Fixes!
    • RPG Maker MZ Bug Fix!
      • Skill List Active After Party Member Change
        • If the skill list is active (ie. the player can move the cursor around) and the party member currently being viewed is changed via the button commands, then previously, RPG Maker MZ would still have that window be active despite having the cursor hidden temporarily. Upon pressing direction buttons, the cursor reveals itself and both the skill type window and skill list window are both active, making way for lots of potential problems to happen.
    • Water Tile Bug
      • It seems like there's a new bug that occurs if you create a tileset from scratch in RPG Maker MZ version 1.5.0+ and version 1.6.0+! What this bug does is it causes many tiles to become water tiles without intending to. You can find this out by turning off all the plugins in your project, putting a Ship or Boat on what are normally ground tiles, and then seeing the Ship or Boat traverse through it.
      • There are two ways to fix this. We cannot fix it through code in this plugin as it's a problem that involves the tileset json data there are ways to work around it so that you can get the proper water-flags to go where they need to be at.
        • 1. Copy a working un-bugged tileset onto the currently bugged one and reapply the tile features like passability, terrain tags, etc. This will make sure the water-passability tiles get copied over correctly.
        • 2. If you're on RPG Maker MZ version 1.5.0 or above, select a working un-bugged tileset (usually a pre-existing tileset when a new project is made), click the "Copy Page" button, go to the bugged tileset and press "Paste Page". You'll have to reapply any different properties like passabilities and terrain tags, but the water tile flags should now be working properly.
      • The plugin will not fix the problem itself since flag data is delicate and should not be tampered with midgame as the changes made by the plugin might not match the desired settings.
      • This plugin, however, will also send out an alert message when coming across such a tile. Pay attention to it and do one of the following two steps above to fix the problem.
  • Documentation Update!
    • Added "Skill List Active After Party Member Change" section to the "Important Changes: Bug Fixes" section of the help file.
    • Added "Water Tile Bug" section to the "Important Changes: Bug Fixes" section of the help file.
    • Help file updated for new features.
  • New Feature!
    • New Plugin Parameter added by Irina:
      • Plugin Parameters > Menu Backgrounds > Blur Strength
        • Strength used for menu background snapshots.

Event Chain Reactions VisuStella MZ

Version 1.01: December 15, 2022

  • Documentation Update!
    • Added new section: "Warning! RPG Maker MZ Version 1.5.0+ Water-Tile Bug!"
      • It seems like there's a new bug that occurs if you create a tileset from scratch in RPG Maker MZ version 1.5.0+ and version 1.6.0+! What this bug does is it causes many tiles to become water tiles without intending to. You can find this out by turning off all the plugins in your project, putting a Ship or Boat on what are normally ground tiles, and then seeing the Ship or Boat traverse through it.
      • Naturally, this causes problems with the Event Chain Reactions plugin as the water tiles are important for submerging reactions.
      • There are two ways to fix this. We cannot fix it through code in this plugin as it's a problem that involves the tileset json data there are ways to work around it so that you can get the proper water-flags to go where they need to be at.
        • 1. Copy a working un-bugged tileset onto the currently bugged one and reapply the tile features like passability, terrain tags, etc. This will make sure the water-passability tiles get copied over correctly.
        • 2. If you're on RPG Maker MZ version 1.5.0 or above, select a working un-bugged tileset (usually a pre-existing tileset when a new project is made), click the "Copy Page" button, go to the bugged tileset and press "Paste Page". You'll have to reapply any different properties like passabilities and terrain tags, but the water tile flags should now be working properly.

Lighting Effects VisuStella MZ

Version 1.02: March 31, 2022

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for new features.
  • New Features!
    • New notetags added by Irina:
      • <Hard Anti-Light Regions: x, x, x>
      • <Hard Anti-Light Terrain Tags: x, x, x>
      • <Soft Anti-Light Regions: x, x, x>
      • <Soft Anti-Light Terrain Tags: x, x, x>
        • Tiles marked by these regions/terrain tags won't have any light shown on them.
        • This does NOT block light from going to the other side. If the light radius is large enough, it will pierce through to the other side. It just won't be visible on the region marked tiles.
    • New Plugin Parameters added by Irina:
      • Anti-Light Settings
        • Anti-Light regions and terrain tags can be used to mark certain tiles from being affected by light at all. These tiles can be used as ceiling tiles or areas outside of the map boundaries where light doesn't normally reach.
        • Keep in mind that this does NOT block light from passing through it. If a light source is big enough to engulf the tiles past the anti-light marked tiles, those tiles will still be lit up by any light sources. Therefore, you need to mark those tiles on the map to be anti-light as well in addition to planning out your maps for potential light piercing through the tiles.
        • There are two kinds of anti-light types. Hard edges and soft edges. Hard Edges are extremely rough and box like. Soft Edges will smooth out towards regularly lit tiles.

Picture Common Events VisuStella MZ

Version 1.02: March 17, 2022

  • Documentation Update!
    • Added to "Instructions" section by Arisu:
      • Also be warned that the player CANNOT press Picture Common Events whenever an event is running (with the exception of Parallels). This is NOT a bug.
      • This is because if an event is running under the main event interpreter and a Picture Common Event were to be pressed, it would interrupt the flow of the event. This would result in cutscenes to be potentially bugged, currently running events to also be bugged, etc.
      • As such, the ability to click and activate Picture Common Events during an event (with the exception of Parallels) are disabled to prevent potential problems with the game dev cycle.

        • Example provided inside segment.
  • New Features!

    • Help file updated for new features.
  • Feature Update!
    • Once Parallels for battle now operate outside of the battle process and now will function consistently throughout. Update made by Olivia.
  • New Features!
    • New Troop Page comment tag added by Olivia and sponsored by Puddor:
      • <Once Parallel When Start Battle>
        • Causes the troop page to immediately run the moment the battle scene begins to fade in (not after it fades in). This is faster than a turn 0 condition troop page. Troop page conditions are ignored.
        • This can be used for things like the Action Sequence Camera plugin, the Visual Battle Environment plugin, and/or initial battle poses and such in order to provide a near seamless battle transition experience.
        • This does NOT trigger when coming out of the options menu or party menu screens.
        • This WILL trigger when going from battle to battle nonstop via plugins like VisuStella MZ's Chain Battles.
        • When actors are moving towards their home positions, it will take around 30 frames by default. Use this information however you like.

Core Engine VisuStella MZ

Version 1.51: December 9, 2021

  • Bug Fixes!
    • RPG Maker MZ Bug Fix!
      • In the battle status windows, whenever actor names are displayed, the bitmap used to display their name text do not extend vertically all the way, causing letters like lowercase "Q" and "G" to be cut off, making them hard to distinguish from one another. The Core Engine will remedy this by extending the bitmap to allow enough room. Fix made by Irina.

      • MOVE: Change Home By Distance

      • <Next Page>
        • Ends the current message page at this line. This is used for messages when rows are at 5 or above and the message lines don't match the amount. This is used to prevent grabbing message windows from following message events. Any lines following <Next Page> in the same message event will be ignored.

Options Core VisuStella MZ

      • The "Full Screen" settings have been updated in General settings. If you want to acquire these updated settings for an already-existing project, do either of the following:
        • Delete the existing VisuMZ_1_OptionsCore.js in the Plugin Manager list and install the newest version.
        • Or create a new project, install VisuMZ_1_OptionsCore.js there, then copy over the General settings found in the Options Category plugin parameter to your current project.

  • Compatibility Update!
    • Changing classes via the Class Change System plugin should no longer dupe weapons under specific circumstances. Update made by Olivia.
  • Feature Update!
    • Upon an actor's turn to input a command, if the actor is barefisted while having available swap weapons, it will default the choice to the first available slot. Update made by Olivia.
    • The barefisted equip would occur before because when navigating the equip menu, the switched weapon type would change to whatever is selected. If you go to a slot without any weapons equipped, it would be as having a barehanded setup.

Visual Fogs VisuStella MZ

Version 1.05: December 9, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Added section to "Major Changes" for clarification purposes:
      • Not For Battle
      • For clarification, the VisuStella MZ Visual Fogs plugin is NOT made for battle. There's a separate plugin for that called Visual Battle Environment. The reason why fogs aren't made for battle is because the way fogs are handled in map vary from how they would be handled in battle. Using the Visual Fogs Plugin Commands will only alter the fog appearances when the player finishes battle.
  • Feature Update!
    • Added fail safes to prevent Plugin Command usage during battle to cause problems while inside battle test. Update made by Irina.

Anti-Damage Barriers VisuStella MZ

Version 1.05: November 11, 2021

  • Documentation Update
    • Added snip in "How Barriers Work" section:
      • Barrier states cannot be enabled in passive state form. This is due to their nature of needing to be applied and their automatic nature of being removed upon running out. Barrier states need to be directly applied through adding a state upon the target battler. As passive states are neither applied nor removed, barrier state effects cannot apply to them naturally.

Skills and States Core VisuStella MZ

Version 1.24: November 4, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Added section: "Slip Damage Popup Clarification"
      • Slip Damage popups only show one popup for HP, MP, and TP each and it is the grand total of all the states and effects combined regardless of the number of states and effects on a battler. This is how it is in vanilla RPG Maker MZ and this is how we intend for it to be with the VisuStella MZ library.
      • This is NOT a bug!
      • The reason we are not changing this is because it does not properly relay information to the player accurately. When multiple popups appear, players only have roughly a second and a half to calculate it all for any form of information takeaway. We feel it is better suited for the player's overall convenience to show a cummulative change and steer the experience towards a more positive one.
  • Optimization Update!
    • Plugin should run more optimized.

Battle AI VisuStella MZ

Version 1.14: October 21, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for new features.
    • Notetag section "Condition List" updated with the following:
      • *NOTE* JavaScript cannot be used without comparison operators to reduce error. This means if you want to check if a switch is on or not, don't simply use "$gameSwitches.value(42)" as it does not have any comparison operators. Instead, use "$gameSwitches.value(42) === true" to check.
    • Updated section "Regarding $gameTroop.turnCount() for A.I. Conditions"
  • New Experimental Feature!
    • New Plugin Parameter added by Yanfly:
      • A.I. General Settings > Experimental > On-The-Spot A.I.
        • A.I. enemies/actors determine actions on the spot when it's their turn.
        • Functions akin to YEP's Battle A.I. Core where enemies determine new actions on the spot. Doing so will forcefully change the way the Turn Count is handled for Game_Battler to not utilize the +1.
        • This will forcefully remove the +1 towards the count and forcefully make enemies re-evaluate actions upon the start of the string of their actions. This comes with some side effects that will potentially give A.I. advantages or disadvantages depending on the battle system type. Action Speed becomes something that can be abused as it is normally something that is determined based on the queued actions. A.I. can pick a high speed weak action and then switch it for a slow speed strong action. There is no proper fix to this due to how on-the-spot A.I. works as it is ill-fitted for speed-relative battle systems. You have been warned.
        • In the event that this Plugin Parameter IS enabled, then using the turnCount JavaScript code should work again due to the normalization of how the turn property is calculated.
  • Optimization Update!
    • Updated last version's newest change to be more optimized and occur upon each iteration of a new subject being determined to account for better check timing. Update made by Yanfly.

Core Engine VisuStella MZ

Version 1.45: September 17, 2021

  • Bug Fixes!
    • Fixed a problem with "Picture: Coordinates Mode" to properly utilize the correct picture ID. Fix made by Arisu.
    • RPG Maker MZ Bug Fix:
      • Instant Text Discrepancy for Window_Message
        • Window_Message displays text differently when it draws letters one by one versus when the text is displayed instantly. This isn't noticeable with the default font, but it's very visible when using something like Arial. The error is due to Bitmap.measureTextWidth yielding a rounded value per letter versus per word. The Core Engine will provide a bug fix that will single out the cause and make it so that only Window_Message will not utilize any round number values when determining the width of each letter, whether or not it is shown instantly. This change will only affect Window_Message and not any other window in order to prevent unintended side effects.

-

Skills and States Core VisuStella MZ

Version 1.22: August 6, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • "Action End Removal for States" under Major Updates is changed to:
      • If your Plugin Parameter settings for "Action End Update" are enabled, then "Action End" has been updated so that it actually applies per action used instead of just being at the start of a battler's action set.
      • However, there are side effects to this: if a state has the "Cannot Move" restriction along with the "Action End" removal timing, then unsurprisingly, the state will never wear off because it's now based on actual actions ending. To offset this and remove confusion, "Action End" auto-removal timings for states with "Cannot Move" restrictions will be turned into "Turn End" auto-removal timings while the "Action End Update" is enabled.
      • This automatic change won't make it behave like an "Action End" removal timing would, but it's better than completely softlocking a battler.
  • Feature Update!
    • Those using "Cannot Move" states with "Action End" auto-removal will now have be automatically converted into "Turn End" auto-removal if the plugin parameter "Action End Update" is set to true. Update by Irina.

Skills and States Core VisuStella MZ

Version 1.21: July 30, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Expanded "Action End Removal for States" section in Major Changes.
      • These changes have been in effect since Version 1.07 but have not been explained in excess detail in the documentation since.
        • Action End has been updated so that it actually applies per action used instead of just being at the start of a battler's action set. However, there are side effects to this: if a state has the "Cannot Move" restriction along with the "Action End" removal timing, then unsurprisingly, the state will never wear off because it's now based on actual actions ending. There are two solutions to this:
        • Don't make "Cannot Move" restriction states with "Action End". This is not a workaround. This is how the state removal is intended to work under the new change.
        • Go to the Skills & States Core Plugin Parameters, go to State Setttings, look for "Action End Update", and set it to false. You now reverted the removal timing system back to how it originally was in RPG Maker MZ's default battle system where it only updates based on an action set rather than per actual action ending.

  • Documentation Update!
    • Added notes for the various <JS Steal Rate> notetags:
      • The 'rate' value is multiplied against the success rate of the target item being stolen. This is a multiplicative stack.
      • This means an item's default steal rate of 5% and a 200% steal rate on this notetag's 'rate' variable will yield 10%. Alternatively, if the default steal rate is 0%, it will yield 0% regardless of this notetag's 'rate' variable value.

Core Engine VisuStella MZ

Version 1.25: February 5, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for new features.
  • New Features!
    • Show Scrolling Text, additional functionality added by Arisu
      • The event command "Show Scrolling Text" now has additional functionality as long as the VisuStella MZ Core Engine is installed. If the game dev inserts "// Script Call" (without the quotes) inside the scrolling text, then the entirity of the Show Scrolling Text event command will be ran as a giant script call event command.
      • The reason why this functionality is added is because the "Script..." event command contains only 12 lines maximum. This means for any script call larger than 12 lines of code cannot be done by normal means as each script call is ran as a separate instance.
      • By repurposing the "Show Scrolling Text" event command to be able to function as an extended "Script..." event command, such a thing is now possible with less hassle and more lines to code with.
      • This effect does not occur if the Show Scrolling Text event command does not have "// Script Call" in its contents.

Menu Cursor VisuStella MZ

Version 1.05: February 5, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for removed feature.
  • Feature Update!
    • "Window_NumberInput" for Window Padding Settings Plugin Parameter is now removed. This is due to numerous "bug reports" despite the issue of no numbers being shown having been fixed since v1.01. Since many users did not do a fresh reinstall of the plugin to fix the problem and continued to submit it as bug reports, we have decided it would be better to just hardcode the padding values for this window instead. Update by Irina.

Core Engine VisuStella MZ

Version 1.24: January 29, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Plugin Parameters: Custom Parameters Settings added the following note:
      • For clarification, these settings do NOT create brand-new parameters for you to use and add to your game nor are the bonuses supported by other plugins in the VisuStella MZ library. These settings exist to function as a bridge for non-VisuStella MZ plugins that have created their own parameter values and to show them inside VisuStella menus.
  • Feature Update!
    • Default JS Plugin Parameter for the Title Command: "Shutdown" now has a note in it that reads: "Do NOT use this command with mobile devices or browser games. All it does is cause the game to display a blank, black canvas which the player is unable to do anything with. It does NOT force close the browser tab nor the app."
      • This is also why this command is disabled by default for any non-NodeJS client deployed game versions.
    • Disabled some bug fixes made by the Core Engine for the default RMMZ code base since the 1.1.1 version now contains those very same fixes.

      • <Common Event: name>
        • Battle only: calls forth a Common Event of a matching name.

    • Default settings have been added to the Plugin Parameters. If you want to acquire these settings for an already-existing project, do either of the following:
      • Delete the existing VisuMZ_1_ElementStatusCore.js in the Plugin Manager list and install the newest version.

        • Sets a maximum number of copies that the actor can wear of this equipment. Usage Example: Actors can only equip one copy of the "One-of-a-Kind Ring" on at any time despite having empty accessory slots because the ring has a <Equip Copy Limit: 1> notetag.

        • This weapon cannot be equipped with other weapons of the same type once the limited amount has been reached. Usage Example: A dualwielding warrior who can only equip one sword and a dagger but never two swords or two daggers because the swords and daggers all have the <Equip Weapon Type Limit: 1> notetags on them.
      • <Equip Armor Type Limit: x>
        • This armor cannot be equipped with other armors of the same type once the limited amount has been reached. Usage Example: People cannot equip more than two glove accessories on at a time because the glove is a "Glove" armor-type and each glove item has the <Equip Armor Type Limit: 2> notetags on them.

Battle Core VisuStella MZ

Version 1.23: January 22, 2021

  • Documentation Update!
    • Help file updated for new features.
  • Feature Update!
    • ACSET: All Targets Action Set and ACSET: Each Target Action Set updated
      • New parameter added: Dual/Multi Wield?
        • Add times struck based on weapon quantity equipped?
  • New Features!
    • Dual Wielding now functions differently. Made by Olivia.
      • Previously, RPG Maker MZ had "Dual Wielding" attack using both weapon animations at once, with the combined ATK of each weapon. It's confusing to look at and does not portray the nature of "Dual Wielding".
      • Dual Wielding, or in the case of users adding in third and fourth weapons, Multi Wielding is now changed. Each weapon is displayed individually, each producing its own attack animation, showing each weapon type, and applying only that weapon's ATK, Traits, and related effects. It is no longer a combined effect to display everything at once like RPG Maker MZ default.
      • If an actor has multiple weapon slots but some of them are unequipped, then the action will treat the attack as a single attack. There will be no barehanded attack to add on top of it. This is to match RPG Maker MZ's decision to omit a second animation if the same scenario is applied.
    • New Action Sequence Plugin Commands added by Yanfly
      • ANIM: Attack Animation 2+
        • Plays the animation associated with the user's 2nd weapon. Plays nothing if there is no 2nd weapon equipped.
    • New Action Sequence Plugin Commands added by Olivia
      • WEAPON: Clear Weapon Slot
      • WEAPON: Next Weapon Slot
      • WEAPON: Set Weapon Slot
        • These are Action Sequence Plugin Commands for devs who want finer control over Dual/Multi Wielding weapons.
