Hime Scope Core

This plugin changes the way item/skill scopes are handled in RPG Maker.

By default, all scopes are defined by the item or skill, and the action’sscope is based on the item or skill being used.

With this plugin, the action’s scope is separated from the skill. For example, if your skill targets “one enemy” by default, you could
write additional plugins that make it so that the action can be changed to target “all enemies”, or “one ally” as needed.

The purpose of this plugin is to improve compatibility between different scope-related plugins and to provide a standard way of managing scope.

    Is it possible to make it target any ally except the user?

    I’m having some trouble using this plugin. More specifically for getting the scope change to happen once you’ve triggered a key. I looked at the wiki like the in-creator help suggests, looking at what’s said there about conditional formulas. But after personal testing and trying to consult the internet I’m unable to make it work. This is what it looks like now:

    <scope change rule: 1-enemy>


    </scope change rule>

    But that just returns the error “ReferenceError, shift is not defined” . Help?

      It should be specified as a string.


      Otherwise it’s treated as a variable and the game crashes since it can’t find a previous definition of the variable.
