There's a small issue with the points. If you don't use them all before saving and quitting, they don't carry over when you load, so any that you don't use are lost. :(
Apart from that, it's a great little script that's very customisable. Kudos TDS~

Oh, which reminds me, is there a way change the amount of parameter points gained per person, instead of having it the same for everyone?
That is really odd. Are you using a custom script that changes the actor class?

And currently no, there is no way to give each person individual parameter points on level up, but I'll add it on the next update


All right, I updated and added the feature to give actors individual stat change point gain.

I was not able to reproduce the save bug though.
I'll experiment a bit and see which script I'm using is causing the issue, if any, and if I can reproduce it too.

Also, woo~ Update! :D
Gamers don't die, they respawn.
I am not very script savvy, so, I am wondering if there is a way to make it so the party or an individual can receive "Param Points" without needing to level up? I know I need to use the Script Call from the events, but not the coding.
I updated the script with a command to make it easier to gain or lose parameter points.

Just use this in a script call to gain or lose parameter points

gain_param_points(actor_id, value)
lose_param_points(actor_id, value)
Gamers don't die, they respawn.
Ah, hello again. I have ran into two slight problems. Whenever I change the "<Change_PARAMS: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7>" in the Actor Notes to something like this "<Change_PARAMS: 0 2 3 4 5 6>," I get an error when I try to increases the Param of the last Param stat on the list.
The Error I get is:

The second problem I run into is when I try to increase any other Param other than the last one listed and click the Yes option, I get an error like this:

I feel like both of these problems are connected because of the changes within the carrots. Also, I haven't messed with the script itself other than the text with the parantheses for the Param Names and Param Help Test. Sorry if I am causing unnecessary trouble, was just experimenting with what the script can do.
I feel like both of these problems are connected because of the changes within the carrots.

My best guess is that it's either Actors or Characters, unless I've missed the carrots in the script?

As for the problem, I'm busy at the moment, but I think I've manage to fix it.

Let me know if it works.
Gamers don't die, they respawn.
Yes, that got it to work now. Thank you very much and sorry for asking for help when you were busy. ^.^)b

Ugh, but now the ATK Parameter is bugged. It doesn't reach the maximum amount and the bar blackens out a bit.

Hello again. (sorry for the double post, lol)
I have ran into a problem, I made it so the player cannot increase the Max MP value or the LUK value in the Stat Distribution menu by the means of the change params you put in the actor tags. However, by doing this, I noticed a glitch. The positions of the stats moving accordingly to the changes I've made, but the gradients bars value doesn't match the changes. For example, the STR bar now the value of Max MP instead of the STR stat value. I can still increase the stat but the bar itself becomes bugged.

I thought I found a solution to my problem, but it nullifies the ability to use change param cap on the actors. (If what I did had actually work, I was going to PM you since it did involve tinkering with the script a tiny bit.)

Short Version: I made it so you can't increase your Max MP and I can't figure out how to make it so the script doesn't bug out by the changes in the order of things.
Really sweet script. Thanks for releasing it.

(EDIT) I should learn to pay more attention to instructions. Thank you again.
I've updated the script to fix all the bugs that have been reported and add a few new features.

I apologize for the delay.

Have a nice day.
Hey TDS, hate to be a bother, but is there a way to change only the size of the text within the Stat box? (Just the part with the numbers and names of the stats.) It seems the font I'm using, while neat in the window and message box, is overlapped by the bars and doesn't quite fit. I've tried messing with default_font line - adding it in one area with a smaller size then changing it elsewhere, but for some reason this ends up changing all fonts once I cancel out into the normal menu. >.<;

Any idea?

Otherwise, this is a pretty swish script. ^.^)b Kinda makes me wish we could promote scripts somewhat. I might suggest something like that, actually.
It's never a bother. It's actually very nice to see people posting on my work and requesting features and fixes.

As for changing the font size on the stat window, this should do it.

# ** Window_Stat_Status_Change
#  This window display and selects actor information in the status distribution
#  scene.

class Window_Stat_Status_Change < Window_Selectable
  # * Reset Font Settings
  def reset_font_settings
    contents.font.size = 20

Just change the 20 to the font size you want.

Let me know if it works out for you and if you need anything else.

Thank you for using my scripts and have a nice day.
Ooooh~ Thanks! That works perfectly! Gotta say, I love this script. ^.^
Hello, I'm sorry if this is a necropost or the like, but I was wondering, is it possible to reset a character's stats? As in, I talk to an NPC/use an item and all the points I've spent for a selected character are returned and the stats return to their base settings.

Is it possible to take the player directly to the stat change screen immediately upon leveling up?
Gotta ask because I'm having trouble figuring this out. But is there a way to make this script work with a custom menu script? I have been using MOG's Monogatari menu script but after installing the stat script, I can access the menu option to distribute points but the game freezes. Any advice would be much appreciated from anyone.
(I answered my own question, disregard this comment.) Thanks.
Shame on me I didn't know that you updated your script!
I've been using it for a while and I like that you added the small windows with the arrows.

Though, it would be nice that a gab window pop up somewhare when you finish to spend the point. The gab window will say : push X to quit.
there is a nameerror on line 53 that prevents the script from working. it crash the moment i try to open the stat change menu. please either tell me how i can fix it myself or upload a fixed version of the script. seems that it have gotten fixed. how can i make a monster give points?
