  1. Is it possible to have the advantage formation shown be a default one?
    Or rather, how to have one advantage trigger at 100%


  2. Alright, so I’m using this along with Yanfly’s Battle Engine core, and while I’m getting the advantages just fine, the player characters are stuck in their default position instead of appearing in the positions normally dictated by the type of advantage. This doesn’t affect the enemy battlers, only players.


  3. Is it possible to make a skill that can change the advantage state? Something like a maneuver for a tactician actor to undo “surrounded” and/or induce “pincer?”


  4. Hello! Is there an editable line in the plugin that allows you to change the starting position of your units for a pincer attack? What I found is that when I initiate a pincer attack my units are placed higher up on the battle screen then they usually are.


    • This section is the part that control the battlers positions during pincers attacks:

          Sprite_Actor.prototype.pincerAttackPosition = function(x, y) {
              var party = $gameParty.members();
              var index = party.indexOf(this._actor);
              var ox = x;
              var gw = Graphics.boxWidth;
              var ni = Math.floor(index / 2)
              var nx = Math.abs(ox < gw / 2 ? ox / 4 : (gw - ox) / 4)
              var px = Math.floor(index % 2 === 0 ? gw - 96 - nx + ni * 32 : 96 + nx - ni * 32);
              var py = Math.floor(280 + ni * 48);
              this.startMove(0, 0, 0)
    , px, py);

      The specific changes will depend on where exactly you want the battlers.
