You should try my other scripts, too. There are many useful scripts amongst them.

Does this script automatically up the character's SP and HP, and you just add stats to everything else??

Nortos


Calintz

Then I think I might use this...
It actually gives the user the ability to optimize their own characters as they see fit.

Blizzard

Yeah, it allows a system similar to Diablo 2 or MMOs like RO.

No, I think just less people are finding bugs with it than previous scripts. I personally use this, and it's the best one in my opinion.

Blizzard

LOL! Yeah, one of the reasons why I made this was because so many people complained about other buggy scripts. Did you know that the basic system for v1.0 took me a bit more than half an hour and the rest of the script around 2.5 hours? I practically made v1.0 of this script in 3 hours. o.o

That's a short amount of time, right? XD Yeah, I've used other ones, and in my opinion they suck :P

Blizzard

It's scarily short. Do you think you could pull off a system like this in 3 hours? :xD:

I figured it was short. But I thought maybe its a long time for the scripting god, XD

Again...This is a beautiful script...
*adds to his game*

But like...
What would be the best way to call the scene from the map??
What would be your choice or method??

Blizzard

I'd make a parallel process common event that checks for button input (i.e. A which is SHIFT) to call it via the script call I described in the instructions. And I think I would definitely turn on the option to call it automatically after a battle when necessary.

Calintz

Haha...
I'm a genius!! I'm glad I thought of it =)

Lol, but that's what I was thinking.
I figure I'll make it a common event so I can turn it on at the beginning of the game, and presto!!
