  1. KyoAlert XP + VX + ACE + MV by Kyonides Introduction It simply displays a small notification alert somewhere on the screen depending upon the configuration of its KyoAlert module. The script will show it whenever you gained or lost any item, weapon, armor, or gold coins. It is possible to change the position of the icon and the item's name. There is a single script call, and it is used only if you want to display the fake Steam like alert. Use it for in game jokes! XD KyoAlert.achieve(ID) Screenshots Download Now!

    Making a Balanced Game

    Note: First off, this will be my first tutorial! Not to mention my first post! Also, I created this tutorial for two reasons, one, I was tired of not seeing a tutorial on balancing the game yet, and second, the guide I've been using is for RPG Maker VX. This guide was inspired, and re-written from an old guide I use, or used to use. I'm re-writing it as it doesn't fit in with all the new features of Ace. If you would like to check it out, here it is! http://www.rpgmakerv...showtopic=47252 Now that that has been said, I bring you... A guide to making a balanced game Table of Contents 1. EXP Curve 2. Parameter Curves 3. Creating Enemies - Basic Enemies - Bosses 4. Skills 5. Weapons, Armor, and Items 6. Money 7. Last Words EXP Curve This is pretty simple, what it does is change how fast, or slow you want your class to level up. What I normally do is leave this alone, but feel free to change it how you want! I'll do a little walk through of what each slider does. Base Value: It does what it says! It is the "base" number of EXP it will take to level up. Say you slide everything else down, and leave this one at 30. It will take 30 EXP to level up. Extra Value:This is basically just like the base value. What it does is just add on to what you have for your base value. Say again, we set the base value at 30, and the extra value at 10, it would then take 40 EXP to level up. It just adds it up. Acceleration A: This speeds up or slows down how much EXP it will take to level up. Acceleration B: Does the same thing as Acceleration A. Parameter Curves All these really do is change how much of a certain parameter to will have at a certain level. There are two main ways to change these. The first one is to just drag a line or curve you think is good, I don't recommend doing this. The second one is clicking on Generate Curve. Here is one rule I always use. For health, add two zeros on for level 99. For the rest only add one. I will walk you though all of them. MHP: (Max Health Points) This is how much health you will have in total at a certain level. Say you set your level one health to 57, set your level 99 to 5700. For this one you add two zeros. MMP: (Max Magic Points) This is how much magic you will have in total at a certain level. If you set your magic to 36 at level one, set your level 99 to 360. From here and the rest you add one zero. ATK: (Attack) This is how much physical damage you can do at a certain level. DEF: (Defense) This is how much physical damage you can take at a certain level. MAT: (Magic Attack) This is how much magical damage you can do at a certain level. MDF: (Magic Defence) This is how much magical damage you can take at a certain level. AGI: (Agility) This is how fast you are. It controls if you miss or not, and if you have certain scripts installed, how fast you attack. LUK: (Luck) This controls if you will contract a state or not. The higher your luck, the lower chance you have of getting a certain state, such as poison. Creating Enemies When making enemies, it's kind of hard to figure out how much health they will need so they won't be too easy or too hard to kill. It goes the same way for the rest of the stats. I'll give a quick walk through of what you can do to solve that problem! It is also hard to tell what level you are when you will need to kill them. So play every once in a while to tell. Remember to always check if the enemy is too strong with the Battle Test after. Also, when I make enemies, I don't just make them. I make them as I go in my game! If you make them right from the start, you don't know if they will be too strong, also you might not use most of them. Basic Enemies Normal Enemy MHP: Double the player's health. MMP: Depends on the skills the enemy has. If it's a magic user, like a mage, give the same amount or double the enemies health. If it isn't a magic user, I recommend either none, or half of the enemies health. ATK: Around 30% less than the player's attack if you are using low health and such as I am. (Using 15 health at level one.) If you are using stuff like 250 health at level one, keep it the same as the player's. If it is a magic user, I recommend half the player's attack. DEF: Same as the player. MAT: If it's a magic user, Around 30% less than the player's attack, or magic attack. (Which one is higher.) If it isn't, either none or half of the player's. MDF: Same as the player. AGI: I would recommend around one or two points higher than the player's agility. LUK: Same as players. Dungeon Enemy MHP: Triple the player's Health. MMP: Depends on the skills the enemy has. If it's a magic user, like a mage, give the same amount or double the enemies health. If it isn't a magic user, I recommend either none, or half of the enemies health. ATK: Same as the player, or one point higher. If it is a magic user, around 30% higher than the player's attack. DEF: Around 10% higher. MAT: If it's a magic user, the same as the player's attack, or magic attack. (Which one is higher.) If it isn't, either none or half of the player's. MDF: Around 10% higher. AGI: Same as the player's or one point less if you use certain scripts. LUK: Same or two points higher than the player's. Now, for making the experience they give you is kind of difficult. What I did was keep changing it until I found a decent amount. It depends on your EXP curve you set. I left mine how it was, so the first enemy I encountered has the EXP of 8. Then for the next enemy, you have to see what level you encounter it. Say I encounter the next enemy at a level of 3. I sat that enemies EXP to 14. For the gold, I use half the amount of the EXP. So for 14 EXP, I give 7 gold. Bosses For bosses it is pretty much the same as basic enemies, but with higher stats. For the experience, I give them a lot. Use the same technique as the one for basic enemies, but double the value of the experience. Then for the gold, give half of the amount from the experience. MHP: 5 times higher than the player's. For All the Rest: Times it by 1.5 higher (Or 150%) than the player's. Skills The skills are always one thing I've hated doing. Even after finding a clever way of doing the skills, I stikk hate doing it, but that is my opinion. You could love doing it! But either way, I'll share my technic of how to make the skills. The first thing you want to do, is decide how much Magic (Or Technical) Points you need it to be. To do that, decide how many skills you want the class to have. Say you want to have 20 skills. Use that, and divide it by 100, then you get 5. So that means, every 5 levels, that class will get a skill. So say your first skill will be at level 5. Go to the class and find out how many MMP you will have at level 5. Once you find out, divide it by 5. That is how much MP the skill will cost! Now we move on to the damage, the rest is pretty self explanatory. Type: Pretty easy, what does the spell do? Element: What element is it? Formula: This is wear the magic happens. Click on quick, for Base Value, set that as double of your ATK or MAT. (Depending on if it's a magic user or not.) Then for Physical and Magical it's pretty simple. If it is a physical skill, set the Physical to 100, if it is a magical skill, set the Magical at 100. Variance: This is the range of damage. Say you leave it at 20. It will do between 20% higher or lower of what you set as your formula. Critical: Does the skill have a chance to land a critical? Weapons, Armor, and Items Alright, we've came a long way haven't we? Well we are almost done! Let's move on, first to weapons. If it is a one handed weapon, it should be half of the player's attack. So if a player has an attack of 18, the weapon should be 9. If it is a two handed weapon, it should be 75% of the player's attack. If it is a dual wield weapon, it should be around 30% of the player's attack. For armor, we have three parts. The body, head, and shield. All three pieces should offer a total of 50% defense. If your player doesn't want to use a shield, then take that off and have it offer a total of 35% defense to balance it out. The body armor should offer 25% defense, the head should offer 10%, and the shield should offer 15%. Now for items, for now, I will just explain a healing potion. Potions for HP, it is a good idea to have the potion heal a little more than what the player actually has, for other classes as well. You should also make a potion for around every ten levels. Now, lets say you were making a potion for a level 10 player, with the HP of 198. You want the potion to heal 20% more than what you have. So for that, 39.6 is 198 of 20%. So you use 198, and round that up to 40. Then you add it, to get a total of 238. That would be how much it would heal. Money Now we are moving on to money, how much will it cost to buy certain items? Will you have enough money at the time of the game? This is pretty simple. For weapons and armor, the price should be around 10 to 15 times the amount of stats they have. Say you have a sword with 16 ATK, 6 AGI, and 2 LUK. add that up to 24, and times it around 10 to 15. I will use 10, so the price would be 240. For weapons/armor that have states or resit elements and such, they amount of the item should increase by around 25%. For Inns, the should make the price of it fit in with the theme of the town/city. If it is a broken up town who just came out of a war, the price should be cheap. If it is the richest kingdom in the world, it should cost a lot. For items, I'll again use a HP potion for example. The price should be half of what the potion does. If you have a HP potion that heals 500 HP, it should cost 250. As for other items, such as those that remove poison, or stun, they should cost around how important the state is. Something that cures poison should be cheaper than something that cures stone, while something that cures stone, should be cheaper than something that revives a character from death. Last Words Now it is over! I really hope that this guide has helped. If you see any errors, or something that doesn't seem to be balanced to you let me know! I thank MrE for making the guide I used for more than a year now, and inspiring me to write an up-to-date one! Good luck on balancing your game, and have fun!

    On gear part 2 : Armor and Accesories

    Now it is time for my weekly collection of words that could loosely be categorized as a blog post. To follow up on last weeks post, I will be talking about the gear in my game, more specifically the armor and Accessories. Like I gave my weapons types, I did the same for my armor. They are Light , medium or heavy, with light giving 2 levels worth of magic defence, heavy giving 2 levels of physical defence, and medium being a medium between these. These bonusses are static, so late game gear wil give the same bonus as early gear. While the defence stat is split between mdf end regular def, that does not necessarily mean that all light armour is meant for mages, and all heavy armour is meant for fighters( not actual classes in my game). A fencers' armour is light armor, but is obviously better suited for a martial types, while the demonhide robes might be considered heavy armor, but better on a mage. Why keep the bonuses so close you ask ? It is because you can choose what to attack with, but not what to defend with. If the mage gets splatered all over the dungeon wall by an attack that would only incovenience the tank of the team, then fights become either RNG based if the AI is random, or impossible as the mage eats all the attacks in the first round and dies, if the AI is semi-competent. Warning : Short math break : When I say 2 level's worth of defence , I mean the characters defence is as if he were 2 levels higher. As all my base stats are equal to level^2, this raises the defence by 4*lvl +4, meaning the difference between light and heavy armor in damage taken is: lvl^2/(lvl^2+4*lvl+4). This is an equation that quickly trends towards 1 (or 100%) with increasing lvl. So a 10th level character who dons heavy armour would have his defence rise from 100 (10^2) to 144 (14^2), meaning he takes about 70% of the damage he would have in the light armour, but at lvl 20 he would take 82 % of the light armored characters damage. This eventually tapers off, until he takes 96 % of the damage he would take in light armor at lvl 100. This might seem counterproductive, but it just means that the higher the character goes, the smaller the difference, allowing me to really fine tune those late game bosses and enemies. As damage in % of a characters HP rises from 20 % at lvl 1 to 60 % at level 100, this is necessary, as at 60 % of a characters hp, having the mage take 42 % more damage than the tank is kind of a problem, as any crit will instadrop the mage from full HP, and even regular attacks will take out 84 % of the characters HP at that level, while the heavy will just fold to any spell cast in his direction. That is even assuming they have the same max HP, which they might not. Math break over. Now, why do I have my armours give an actual bonus to a stat, but not my weapons ? Because a bonus to a defence is an actual choice to be made. A stat bonus to attack will usually trump whatever other effects a weapon could give, but here I find it to be a meaningfull choice. The bonus also doesn't escalate as much, as atk is squared in the damage formula, but not defence. After type, each weapon has an origin : Fantasy, Action or SciFi. As a general rule, Fantasy armour aids resource generation (tp or mp), Action armour gives resistances to damage types, and SciFi generates a small barrier around the user, replenishing every turn. On top of this, each non standard armor has a unique ability, such as the mech suit giving a nearly impenetrable physical defence and missile attacks, but giving glaring weaknesses to most elemental damage or the time-mage robe reducing cooldowns, but decreasing mp regeneration. Almost none of these are pure upside. The only other equipment slots will be accesories. These fall into two categories : a neck slot and a hands slot. The neck accessories are defensive and will take the form of amulets, cloaks, ... Most of them will be both up and downside. Some examples : The amulet that protects from silence, will also cause all spells to generate extra noise, thus making stealth harder. The cloack that grants immunity to poison also nullifies potions, and so on. The other accessory slot, the hand slot, including rings and gloves, is focused on granting abilities. These are without downside, but as you are limited to one, it still presents the player with choices: "Do I want my fighter to be able to cast a cure spell every 3 turns or spend mp to cast a fireball ?". Most of these will either use a cooldown or warm up or consume the characters MP/TP, even if the base spell would not. As for availabilty, each base type and origin has one armor that is available in reasonable quantities (a total of 9 options), but the special ones are all unique, as are all accesories. Seeing as you have to equip about 20 party members eventually for the multi party dungeons, choice is the name of the game. Long story short : Options, not dictations.

    New Iconset

    Hey guys! You may already know me from my other topic: http://www.rpgmakercentral.com/topic/27629-belzarks-resource-madness-battler-tileset-sprite-and-faceset-edits/ I am currently working on an icon set, and wanted some opinions before I continue with it. Please tell me whatever you think looks weird, from colours to shading, anything. As you can see it isn't finished yet, but I'll keep it up to date whenever I finish a few new icons. Thanks a lot!

    Novelty Items

    Yes, novelty items. Weird, fun, different things to add to your game. I have a couple of these in the form of weapons. One is a quest item so while the weapon doesn't fit the game, it fits that quest. The other for the moment is completely random. I'm not even sure where I'm going to put it. Quest? SOme hidden chest? Rare drop? I dunno. There's two reasons I'm posting this. The first is it maybe it will inspire some creativity in other people's games. The first weapon idea started as a humorous request from a friend and evolved into an entire side quest. The second I want to see what goodies y'all have put in your games, and maybe I'll be the one who is inspired. So here's my two novelty weapons. The first is classified as a sword, but it ain't no sword. It's a crowbar. It is called "The Lesson Learner". It's Atk power is on par with the best tier the player get obtain at the time. It has a chance to Stun when attacking. It also lets the wielder use a special skill: Thwack! Thawk! is a fairly powerful singe target attack high a high chance to Stun and a chance to Confuse. The player will either get his as a reward for a sidequest or just find it in a chest. The quest is a novelty itself. The player breaks up an organized crime ring for some reason. 1920's themed American gangster type stuff. That doesn't even fit the time period the game is in which is late Renaissance-early Industrial era. I think I have to have tommy guns even though they haven't been invented. So... magic tommy guns? I'm not sure where the second one will go. It is a dagger... sort of. The deadly "Rusty Butterknife". Why? Ever hear the expression "Cut you with a rusty butterknife?" That's why. It will have lower Atk power than other daggers of it's grade, but attacks can cause bleed and poison. It also grants a special skill: Tetanus. It deals normal attack damage or maybe slightly more, but has a 100% chance of inflicting Bleed and Poison (minus resistances). So there you have it. My silly, random weaponry. What fun things have you guys put in games?

    how would i go about....

    Is there anyway I could make the weapon and armor ratings calculate as a separate value instead of just adding to atk and def? I personally feel it would be a lot easier to set up custom formulas if I could use these as a buff to atk, and a debuff when being attacked. For instance, your attack stat is 100 say, but weapons have a separate value that can be applied in formula, and armor would do the same for defense, such that your def might be 25, but your armor rating isn't necessarily just added to your defense stat, but instead figured into formulas separately. I'd assume this would require redefining them in the code, which I can probably handle or if there is a script someone could point me to that would also help.
