Really good job at clarifying some of the steps of damage calculation. I would add that Critical damage can be quickly modified in line 383 of Game_Battler in the core scripts (as I believe many people will find 300% damage from a crit to be a bit on the strong side, especially when you see your own actors getting crit'd).

thank you very much. i have been looking for about a hour now about critical damage
any you not only gave answer but also how to change it.
1.9 * 0.1 = 9%?

Anyway, does everyone now perfectly understand how VX combat formulas work? Will I not ever again see monstrosities such as people creating an accessory that adds 20 LUK?

A lot of kicking and misunderstandings haha. Best math discussion ever.

@ Craze: Perhaps a simple script manipulation tutorial is in order?

Quite lovely Nessiah! Thanks for the information.

My favorite part of this is how easy the Ace base code is to edit, to make this work exactly as you please.

People wanting to go to the next level should try these simple changes within the scripts:

• Make LUK's effect's on status infliction be based on 1.0 * A's LUK / B's LUK, so that LUK scales well over the course of a game
• Have LUK influence critical hit rates and/or critical hit damage
• Make GRD also affect ailment success when guarding
• Turn a special stat you don't want (perhaps REC or one of the regens) into magical accuracy, a la HIT
• Make it so that if the attacker's HIT minus the target's EVA produces a result greater than 1.0, the "spill-over" accuracy enhances ailment and critical success
• Make a status effect that doubles critical hit damage
• Make a status effect that makes buff effectiveness greater

Thank you guys :D

@Hesufo
I mostly thought this guide was for people who can't edit scripts and wants to work with the program as is (vanilla as much as possible) in terms for game formulas. That's why I didn't really add the whole edit script thing? Learning tool and stuff :D

I am pretty interested in hooking up sometime. Screw me.
