Ever had trouble getting your characters and enemies to balance out? Tied of starting and stopping test battles because the damage wasn't right? Frustrate no more, for here is the answer! This application loads your RPG Maker project and can preform all the necessary damage calculations for you. It even takes elements into concideration! Changes you make to the game's database (In RPG Maker) will not immediately reflect in the program, however there is a quick option to reload the database (Ctrl+R). This makes testing quick and easy.

Screenshots (VX version shown)


Download standalone VX version: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/337225/VX_Damage_Calc.exe
Download standalone XP version: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/337225/XP_Damage_Calc.exe
Download source version (Requires ruby and wxruby to run): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/337225/Damage_Calc.zip
The source version includes both VX and XP versions. Just change the MODE variable in Version.rb to change between them. Run init.rbw to run the program.

**NEW** XP version released September 17, 2009.

Do you think the same thing can be done for RPG Maker XP? This program is wonderful, by the way though. :)

Update: There is now the XP version of the program! This version doesn't have item damage support (yet, maybe) because of the different way XP handles items.

Enjoy.

Even though I don't use Rpg Maker anymore, I wanted to tell you that this is really nice :o

I love this thing. Balancing will be so much easier now.

One question though, is there an option to see how much healing will be done if a character heals another?

Just test the healing against an enemy. Unless you've done something strange, healing spells will heal all characters and enemies equally.

Healing spells will use the target as the caster for the calculations. It's not the most accurate of finding how much a spell will heal, but close enough for the application.

Brilliant application. ^_^ Thanks for making this!

It would be even better if you would also see the maxHP/maxMP, the HP and MP after the attack/skill and the % by which it has gone down. Maybe also how many times the attack/skill needs to be done on average ('Expected') to bring HP down to 0. That would be extremely helpful, imo.

I do have a quick question; does this 'emulate' the RM formulas, or does it calculate it directly using the methods from your project's scripts? Only reason I ask is, while I still use the same method namespaces and argument handling, the actual methods handling attack/item/skill effect and element calculation formulas have been significantly changed.

Anyways, thank you for building these neat little tools, I remember when you started them a month or two back and I still have it on my other HD. Pretty neat and useful utilities :thumb:

The system emulates the damage output with a rewrite of the default algorithms.
