Title: [2k3]Class switching shenanigans
Post by: Preki on November 16, 2017, 08:12:20 AM
Been a while since I posted something here, well. Here goes something

Ever played Alter AILA? This game does a nice trick with changing character's battle animation by changing class. I've replicated this system and I thought it worked totally fine. It wasn't until few days ago that I noticed the statistics are not rising upon leveling up once character's class has been switched. It took me few days to realize that it's the Change Class command itself causing the problem which doesn't exist in Alter AILA. I could scrap the whole thing, but then again, characters in my game use firearms, so I'd rather have them show their guns, especially when these are rifles, shotguns and stuff.

So is there any idea how to fix this bug? Any trick I'm not aware of? 'Cause after several days of troubleshooting I still can't figure out what's going on.

Hmm. What settings do you have for the change class command? And is there a difference between the exp curve of the initial class and the new one?

Well I thought of this at the very beginning. The class change does affects neither level, skills nor stats. The EXP curve is identical, but character's stats are still frozen no matter what.

Weird. You'd have thought someone would have spotted this before if it was a general bug, but stranger things have happened.

What version of rpgmaker are you using, and is it steam or 'other'?

Still "other" version, but I consider getting the official release anytime soon. And I know, it's VERY weird since I've seen games made in unofficial versions which does not have this issue.

I think I'm gonna do further research by creating a new project with default database and meddle with this one.

Hmm, could you post a screenshot of the classes and events or explain more in detail about the issue?

Well I could, but there's something new!

Not only did I have to set exactly the same EXP curve for each class, but also I had to set stats curves to be identical with a given character. So far it works like charm, but I'm not 100% percent sure, so don't close this thread yet.
