Legacy Resources:

The following resources are all made for past RPG Maker programs, with the majority of them being intended for RPG Maker VX Ace or RPG Maker VX.
Please read the terms of use before using.

Please note that while these scripts and resources have been extensively tested, they might conflict with other scripts or have minor bugs. No additional bug-fixes or compatibility patches will be made for these resources. I have moved on to RPG Maker MV and will be focusing entirely on CGMV engine and MV Resources.

The following scripts are for RPG Maker VX Ace only. They comprise the powerful CSCA engine.

All these values are stored in variables specified by you, so it's easy to clear/manipulate the values. Can be used in a wide range of ways, from an end game text message displaying these stats to, say, a battle event where your objective is to use as few items as possible.
