Note
Even though it's indeed a complete script, I still decided to call its 1st version a testing version, as it's the 1st time I write such a massive script(8500+ lines) with such a huge user settings region(2400+ lines), and the user scripting proficiency demand is so high that I want to know how can I make it more user-friendly by listening to user feedbacks.
Right now I'm especially worrying about:
1. If the instructions aren't helpful enough
2. If this script's too hard for even an user with decent scripting knowledge to use
3. If the user settings region is too big
4. If the user's control and freedom aren't enough
5. If this script's too unperformant

Introduction
Back on last year's September, I've begun to think of rewriting the CATB system entirely. I thought "Maybe the rewrite should bundle everything into a single package, as right now the CATB isn't in this way and some users may prefer the former."
As I began working on it, I realized my desired style's quite different from Yami's. For instance, I prefer methods with no more than 10 lines(although a few of mines still breached this limit), while Yami clearly doesn't mind the long methods(up to 60+ lines afaik). The style difference led to more and more redesign and refactoring, to the point that this script might seem to be completely different from CATB, even though this script's core skeleton's still quite similar to CATB's.
I learned a lot during this 7 months(although the actual time I've put is about 7 full weeks), and I want to know how much I've improved. So I used this script as a test. I want to give users as many control and freedom as possible while still keeping this script as user-friendly as possible. That's an extremely tough balance for me to work with and right now I'm not satisfied with this yet. So I want to listen to user feedbacks to see how can I get a better balance.
Finally, I want to emphasize that Yami deserves all the credits, and I'm still going to support CATB as some users may prefer the CATB's easy-to-use and modular addons style.

Purpose
Be an enhanced version of YSA-CATB with bug fixes and addons integrated

Author's Notes
1. Using Yanfly Engine Ace - Ace Core Engine as well is highly recommended as it fixes the force action bug of this script and improve the atb percent and action points display in the actor atb bars.
2. Using Yanfly Engine Ace - Buff & State Manager is highly recommended as it displays the states' remaining turns.
3. Using Yanfly Engine Ace - Skill Cost Manager is highly recommended as it can display the skills/items' action point requirements by adding AC0 in front of ACX used by those skills/items and using <custom cost: skill.ecatb_act_cost[@actor]>.
4. Using Cidiomar's Input as well is highly recommended as it lets users set custom keymaps, which is useful for features using keyboard inputs.
5. Using DoubleX RMVXA Dynamic Data is highly recommemded as it lets you change the notetag values on the fly.
- ecatb_note_strings[note] is an accessor letting you store your new notetag values of notetag note.
- reset_ecatb_notes(note) applies the above changes.
6. Using DoubleX RMVXA State Counters is highly recommended as it displays the enemy countdown states.
7. Using DoubleX RMVXA State Triggers is highly recommended as the CATB Clear Addon and some features of the CATB Countdown Addon are outsourced to that script.
8. This is an advanced complicated script, meaning testings are likely needed to comprehend the use of every configuration of this script.
9. This script can run using the default settings but you're still highly recommended to comprehend all user settings of this script.
10. This script checks and corrects most configuration(but not notetag) values, but you're still highly recommended to validate every configuration(and notetag) values themselves.
11. Using too many notetags and/or complicated configuration settings and/or notetag values can cause severe performance issues.

FAQ
Code: [Select]
#    Q1. What's the main difference between ECATB and CATB?                    |
#    A1. 1. The former integrates everything except compatibility fix into 1   |
#           script while the addons and bug fix of the latter are all separate |
#           scripts.                                                           |
#        2. Almost all user settings of the former can be changed on the fly   |
#           easily while lots of the latter are always fixed once set by users |
#           or even just hardcoded.                                            |
#        3. Some notetags of the former lets users do more stuffs than some of |
#           those of the latter.                                               |
#        4. The code structures and documentations of the former are generally |
#           clearer, neater and more logical than those of the latter.         |
#        5. The codes of the former are generally more effective, efficient,   |
#           flexible, maintainable, reliable and robust than the latter.       |
#        6. The former does a more thorough user error checking and corrections|
#           than the latter for most user settings in most cases.              |
#        7. The former generally demands much more from both the users and     |
#           scripters than the latter.                                         |
#        8. Users can't disable addons in the former while they can add and/or |
#           remove the addon of the latter effortlessly.                       |
#        9. The latter outsources little features to other scripts while the   |
#           former does this significantly more heavily.                       |
#    Q2. Some settings need scripting knowledge to use. May you please teach me|
#        scripting?                                                            |
#    A2. You can ask me how to set specific settings to meet your specific     |
#        needs, but it seems to me that there are many good scripting teachers |
#        so you may want to ask them instead of me for learning scripting.     |
#    Q3. Why don't you implement the reverse atb bar feature in this script    |
#        like what Victor Sant did in his atb script?                          |
#    A3. It's implicitly implemented but the feature is still in this script:  |
#        1. Set :ecatb_bar_colors as %Q(Color.new(0, 0, 0, 0),                 |
#           Color.new(0, 0, 0, 0)).                                            |
#           It makes the atb bar invisible.                                    |
#        2. Set :ecatb_base_fill_t as %Q(1 / Graphics.frame_rate).             |
#           It sets the base atb fill rate to be 100% per frame.               |
#        3. Set the charge rate of each skill or item as "x".                  |
#           It makes the skill or item to charge x% atb per frame.             |
#    Q4. Why I'll have to credit Yami but not you when it's your work?         |
#    A4. It's because this script's an edit of CATB and is heavily based on it.|
#        Without Yami's CATB, this script won't exist; Without his term of use |
#        permitting editing his CATB, this script won't exist as well.         |
#    Q5. What's the point of making ECATB when we've CATB?                     |
#    A5. 1. Some users may prefer having everything bundled into a single      |
#           script and that's the main reason for me to make ECATB.            |
#        2. Lets advanced users have much more control and freedom over the    |
#           script settings. ECATB does that at the cost of significantly      |
#           raising the demand of user proficiency, while CATB keeps the       |
#           settings simple at the cost of obviously reducing the settting     |
#           flexibilities.                                                     |
#    Q6. Can you make this script easier for non-scripters to use?             |
#    A6. I tried to make it as easy as I can but right now that's my limit.    |
#    Q7. Why some settings aren't hardcoded when no users would change them?   |
#    A7. If that's really the case, I'll consider making them hardcoded.       |
#    Q8. Why the script configuration part needs to have 2100+ lines?          |
#    A8. That's because this script does need that many lines to let users set |
#        the configurations of this script. You may want to use CATB instead if|
#        you don't need most of this script's configurations.                  |
#    Q9. Why 'Let your published edits of this script be integrated as parts of|
#        it' is included in the terms of use?                                  |
#    A9. 1. It means I want to reserve that right but that doesn't mean I'll   |
#           always do so. I'll never do so without discussing that with you.   |
#           I'll even try to have your permissions beforehand.                 |
#        2. Integrating the edits into this script may perform better in some  |
#           cases. A case-by-case approach will be used for discussing that.   |
#        3. If I didn't reserve that right, things could be chaotic when some  |
#           edits done by some people did conflict with some of the others by  |
#           some other people. Reserving this right can indeed be an insurance.|
#        4. I'll credit you and clearly stating which parts are your work.     |

Written a patch to let you set the base atb rate formula. It can hurt script performance, but also ease you from copying the same <ecatb rate: RX> to all battlers
