Ever wanted to have a bit more variety in how critical hits are determined in your game? This plugin gives you the ability to sway the critical hit rate of skills, items, and states in your game! Users affected by it can have their actions result in criticals based off their own HP values or the enemy’s! Or perhaps the idea of linking the critical hit rate to the element rate of the action, too? You can also alter the critical hit rate based off the number of states, buffs, or debuffs on either the user or the target!

*NOTE*: This plugin is best used with RPG Maker MV version 1.5.0+. You can still use this plugin with a lower version number, but you will have a much harder time altering the plugin parameters without it.

Notetags

Lunatic Mode – Effect Code


For experienced users that know JavaScript and have RPG Maker MV 1.5.0+, you can add new notetag effects that can be used by the plugin or alter the effects of currently existing notetag effects from the plugin parameters entry: Effect Code. It should look something like this:

// ----------
// Flat Gains
// ----------
if (data.match(/([\+\-]\d+)[ ]HP/i)) {
  value = parseInt(RegExp.$1);
  user.gainHp(value);
  animation = animation || hpAnimation;

} else if (data.match(/([\+\-]\d+)[ ]MP/i)) {
  value = parseInt(RegExp.$1);
  user.gainMp(value);
  animation = animation || mpAnimation;

// -------------------------------
// Add new effects above this line
// -------------------------------
} else {
  skip = true;
}

Here’s what each of the variables used in this code bit refer to:

  --------------------   ---------------------------------------------------
  Variable:              Refers to:
  --------------------   ---------------------------------------------------

  item                   The item being used by this action
  skill                  The skill being used by this action

  isItem                 Returns true if action is an item

  b                      Returns the action's current target
  target                 Returns the action's current target

  s[x]                   Return switch x (true/false)
  v[x]                   Return variable x's current value

  user._result           The current results for the user
  target._result         The current results for the target
  userPreviousResult     The results for the user before any changes

  nonstack               Returns if effect's nonstacking or not (true/false)
  stackCheck             If true, it will autoskip the current effect

  skip                   Default: false. If true, returns the previous rate

If you need to revert the Effect Code back to its original state, delete the plugin from your plugin manager list and then add it again. The code will be back to default.
