Lesson 20 - Mimicry
- Monkey see, Monkey do!
Master Mage: "So you decided to post it TWO days before the date?"
Shadowtext: Just to keep people on their toes.
Master Mage: "Indeed. Well, this is a rather difficult spell to pull off. Final Fantasy veterans will recall this spell.
Shadowtext: The problem is that if you want to use this spell, it will ONLY work with scripted spells--just like those Counter Spells and reflections we taught a while ago.
Master Mage: "Not to mention the fact that EVERY mimicable spell will have to be cast with the Mimic spell in mind."
Shadowtext: Not to mention, target redirection, if it casts the spell on the user. Anyway, let's get started. First off, every scripted spell will need a unique numeric identifier. The best idea would be to make this identifier the same as the skill number. So...
Skill 181, Name: Fireball
Master Mage: "...would have as its identifier '181.'"
Shadowtext: "Just so. Now, during each script, a new line should be inserted."
Condition: Switch [00002: Fireball] = ON
Comment: Add "Fireball" Spell here.
Change Switch: [00002: Fireball] = OFF
Change Variable [00026: MimicSkill]: Set, 181
Master Mage: "Now that the last scripted spell is identifiable, one can cast it again."
Shadowtext: However, it takes a lot of Forks.
Condition: Switch [00001: Mimic] = ON.
Fork Conditions Variable [00026: MimicSkill = 181
____Comment: Add "Fireball" Spell here.
Comment: Add more Forks for more Spells.
Change Switch [00001: Mimic] = OFF
Master Mage: "It is just as easy to Mimic enemy spells.
Shadowtext: Right. Any scripted spell can be mimicked this way.
Master Mage: "The spell could also be used to cast a 'Return Magic' spell, although that's probably easier using the Counterspell method."
Shadowtext: To make a counterspell, make the mimic-script take place AFTER a scripted spell, but in the same event. If the target has a "Return Magic" ability equipped, simply cast the spell again, with the target being the person who cast the spell on the Returner.
Master Mage: "That's it for today."
Shadowtext: Class dismissed.
