Y'all ready to be stylish in battle?
This mod is currently NOT COMPATIBLE with the Tres Mod Menu, and the C-Mod Menu.

I'll describe this mod in a li'l Q&A format to hopefully clear up any possible questions you might have.

Q: What is a "Style Meter"?
A: This mod is based off of the Style Ranking system in the Devil May Cry series, where you're ranked depending on how stylishly you fight.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: How do you get ranked?
A: By getting Style Points! You will gain Style Points (SP) by attacking, using magic, switching weapons, even by taking a selfie mid-fight! The ranking system will go:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Exactly how do you gain Style Points?
A: Again, like I said in the above you will gain a certain amount of Style Points when doing certain actions:

also, it's *technically* detecting your controller inputs when in certain states, rather than actually attacking.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Why should I care about how well I do?
A: Well, it's honestly just user-preference. However, I've implemented a couple of incentives to motivate you to do well! At the end of the fight, on top of a High Score system, you'll be given some BONUS MUNNY depending on your end rank and your Style Points! This should help with some of the grindy-ness of munny when you need it! Especially in the LvD mod!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I keep on mashing the A and B button like always and I don't get any more Style Points, what gives?
A: Ah, so you've run into my Anti-Button Mashing mechanic! Ya didn't think it'd be that easy, did ya?

Spoiler:

My intent is to force you to time your button inputs, rather than just mashing wildly
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: How do I know if I reached my Button Mash Threshold?
A: Not to worry! I've added some icons next to the Style Points Counter to let you know when you've reached it! They will fade away when your Button Mash Count has reset:

I wanted there to be a general 'flow' during combat, where you combine (mainly) all three mechanics of attacking, using magic, and switching weapons to let one another cool down to help rack up those Style Points!


Q: What's the "Style Multiplier"?
A: Exactly what it sounds like! It'll multiply the amount of Style Points you gain! You'll slightly increase your Style Multiplier anytime you: go into a formchange, use a command finisher, use a Team Attack command, or do a gesture in the Selfie mode!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: My Style Points just started decreasing, what is that?
A: That's a mechanic that I like to call "Style Bleed"! When you do *anything* that gains SP you're on a timer that, when completed, will start draining your SP until you do certain things (weapon switching excluded) such as:

Spoiler:

Although, you can *prolong* the timer by doing some other actions like dodging, but it won't stop your SP from draining if it already is.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What happens if you get hit?
A: When you get hit, you'll be set back by two ranks (S, SS, and SSS will be counted as one rank for this, so you'll be set back to B rank), your Style Multiplier will slightly decrease, and you'll immediately start bleeding your Style Points (however, you can immediately stop the Style Bleed if you are able to do the Aerial Recovery)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you have any issues, bugs, questions, suggestions, etc. please let me know!
