Metronome Skill – MV Plugin
Adds the ability to create an easy and effective Metronome Skill.
Metronome Skills are skills that when used, force the user to use any random skill from the entire pool of skills available within your game.
Here is the help file from the Plugin:
<Metronome Skill> <Restrict Metronome> <Metronome Avaliable Skills> x, y, z… </Metronome Avaliable Skills>
Read the information below in order to learn how to properly use
all of these Notetags.
What is a Metronome Skill?
The move “Metronome” is from Pokemon.
This is a Skill that, when called, will make the user use any random
Skill from a pool of every existing Skill in the game.
Everything from the most basic Skill to a Skill that is exclusively
obtainable on a legendary Pokemon could be used.
This Plugin allows you to replicate this feature easily and effectively.
How do you make a Skill become a Metronome Skill?
Insert the following Notetag into the Notebox of the Skill you wish
to use as a Metronome Skill:
When this Skill is called, the user will first use the Skill, then they
will use a random Skill from your game.
If you wish to make a Skill that ONLY calls upon a random Skill, then
I would recommend that you set the Scope of the Skill to “The User”
and leave the Damage Type set to “None”.
How do you make a Skill that can’t be called from a Metronome Skill?
There are two ways a Skill will never be called from a Metronome Skill.
The first is if the Skill’s name is blank.
The second is if the Skill’s Notebox has this Notetag in it:
If a Skill has this in its Notebox, then it will be impossible for a
Metronome Skill to call it.
It is recommended that this be placed in Skills like “Escape” or “Wait”,
in Skills that are used for organization, or in special Skills that
are used for unique eventing/testing.
How do you make a Metronome Skill that can only call certain Skills?
Insert the following into your Metronome Skill Notetag:
<Metronome Avaliable Skills> x, y, z… </Metronome Avaliable Skills>
If this is in the Notebox of a Metronome Skill, then that Skill will
only be able to call upon Skill IDs of x, y, z, etc.
Each ID must be seperated by a comma, you can have 1 Skill, you
can have an infinite amount of Skills, and it is OK to have break lines
Here are some examples:
<Metronome Avaliable Skills> 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 </Metronome Avaliable Skills> <Metronome Avaliable Skills> 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 35, 37, 38, 40, 43, 49, 50, 52, 55 </Metronome Avaliable Skills> <Metronome Avaliable Skills> 55, 56 </Metronome Avaliable Skills> <Metronome Avaliable Skills> 10, 9, 8, 8, 8 </Metronome Avaliable Skills>
(The last example will cause Skill ID 8 to have a triple chance of
