[FF7 PC] Dark Knight Powers
« on: 2017-12-17 05:23:53 »
Hello. I am wondering if anyone knows how possible it would be to create a materia or ability that would allow a character to sacrifice HP for an enhanced attack. I have been on a kick regarding the aspect of a Dark Knight class, and after playing through all the FF games where this class is possible, I want to try and apply abilities from this class to FF7.

I wondered if it was possible to make it a variation of Deathblow, if HP cost for skills would even be possible with this game and editing tools.

I would appreciate any knowledge on if this could be possible, and how I would go about doing so. Thank you!

Edit: I should preface that I do know a good bit about kernal editing via Wallmarket, and based on what I do know I could not find a way to do so in there, unless there is something I am missing.

You could write AI to take off a certain percentage per action or command. Doesn't seem too hard, actually.

I will admit I do not know much about writing AI for this game. I have only just recently gotten back into FF7 and FF7 modding after a year, and I have not gone into AI writing. The question is how difficult it would be to create a command materia that, when the command was used, would do a Deathblow effect (without the higher miss chance, maybe extra damage as well) at the cost of percentage HP, without doing so on every command?

I'll try to learn more about AI writing and see how well this will work. I'll post what I find/create.

Maybe you can work on a limit to do what you desire.  Libre works very well for it.
