This plugin shows the HP Gauges of enemies as they're selected or while they
take damage. You can also opt for actors to show their HP Gauge as well.
Adjust the parameters to change the way you want the HP Gauges to appear.

By default, enemies would need to be defeated first in order for the gauges
to show up. This can be changed within the parameter settings. However,
during battle test, the HP gauges are always shown unless the enemy has a
hidden HP gauge.



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.


Class and Enemy Notetags:
  <Hide HP Gauge>
  This HP gauge will always be hidden if this notetag is present.

  <Show HP Gauge>
  This HP gauge will always be shown if this notetag is present while the
  target is selected or taking damage.

  <HP Gauge Width: x>
  This will set the battler's HP Gauge width to x pixels. However, if this
  width is less than the minimum width, minimum width will take priority.

  <HP Gauge Height: x>
  This set's the HP Gauge height to x pixels.

  <HP Gauge Back Color: x>
  This changes the HP Gauge's back color to x text color.

  <HP Gauge Color 1: x>
  This changes the HP Gauge's color 1 to x text color.

  <HP Gauge Color 2: x>
  This changes the HP Gauge's color 2 to x text color.
