    Update: v1.4.1
    Changes:
    - Added support for English patch users; monster names should now show correctly.
    Announcements:
    - You can check if the plugin is working properly by seeing if you can see the "MHXX Overlay Plugin Active" message on the bottom screen just after loading the game
    - If you see any monster listed as "UNKNOWN" or "???", please let me know how to encounter it. Most likely this won't be any of the large monsters. UPDATE: English patch is known to be incompatible in this respect; monster names will not show correctly.
    - If you cannot see the monster display but the settings menu works fine, and if the result is always "FAIL" when you run the search monster list function, please PM me a ram dump if you can (instructions), and include these info: quest, was the large monster visible on the field, 3DS model type (old/new), 3DS region
    - Monster sizes are not exact; they will deviate somewhat from the true value, sometimes by a lot (should be less than 10 though). If you can please reply and tell me what size the overlay displayed and the true size, as this will help me refine the size calculations for that monster
    - Color values are RGB, but there might be a bug that is causing the actual displayed color to be not what it should be (if for example you look it up on a website reference). The actual code responsible for producing the colors is quite complicated and if anyone knows what it's doing I will be very grateful if you can explain it to me.
    - Help Wanted! I need some help documenting the parts information for each monster. If you're interested, read the spoiler below:
    Help Wanted

    Change Log

    This is a fork of Exter7's MHGEN-Monster-HP-NTR-Plugin, adapted for MHXX. Note that this is a breaking change; the previous games are not supported. Currently it displays:
    1. Main monsters, their HP, and some of their part HPs (mostly tails)
    2. Small monsters and their HP, if they are in the current map
    3. Special attack damage, such as poison
    The plugin is active only during quests and nothing will be shown when you are not actively hunting monsters. The HP bars will change color depending on their current percentage:
    • Green = >30%
    • Orange = 20 ~ 30%
    • Red = 0% ~ 20%
    You can press L+SELECT to bring up a configuration menu to adjust settings anytime; the menu will not pause the game. (This functionality is active the moment you see the green flash of the 3DS logo just after booting the game)
    menu.png special stats english.png special stats japanese.png
    4locations.png no special damage.png

    1. Main numeric display (does not change color)
    2. Main HP (changes color, disappears if HP reaches 0)
    3. Top bar: HP
    4. Bottom bar: part HP (only for large monsters)
    5. Poison
    6. Paralysis
    7. Sleep
    Part HP bars change color as well. The number of part HP bars will vary depending on the monster. The length of the part HP bar indicates the amount of HP it has relative to other parts.

    This is BETA software. I will not be responsible for anything that may happen should you choose to use it.

    Users have reported success in using the plugin in combination with other plugins, such as the English patch. Going online should be no problem, but please refrain from behavior that may agitate other players.

    If you find bugs/problems, please reply to this thread or log an issue on github. Please describe what's not working (game crashing? nothing is showing up on the bottom screen in quests?), whether other NTR plugins work, how you are running the game (card or eshop), and what kind of machine you are using (old/new and region).

    With mode bootntr 3 it should work. Only one way to know is try it out and record the results.

    The plugin doesn't have a menu entry at the moment; it is always activated.
    Nothing is shown when you're in town, so you'd have to get into a quest to check if things are running.
    If you see nothing then I'm sorry there's nothing I can do about that since NTR isn't being actively developed anymore.

    Thanks for the report!
    Could you tell me more about how it is not working?
    Does the game crash? Does nothing appear in the bottom screen when you enter a quest? How are you running the game (card/CIA)? Do other plugins work?

    Hmmm...let me see
    If you press X+Y do you see the NTR menu?
    Also, are you using Luma 3DS?

    Running Luma and booting the plugin via 3.4 NTR, however no HP bars for me either. I know that NTR is working, and that other plugins are working, because I can access a cheat menu in game. This plugin, however, never shows. There's a chance that the 2.1 english patch could be effecting it, but that's the only thing I could imagine...

    Yeah, haven't been having issues with my cheat file, though I had to dig around to find one that would work. I'll tell you now, if the one you have includes "Birds Eye View" or something like that, I never got any of that file to work.

    well, I realized now your guess was right, I have 2 files, the one with green+blue combined colour or similar like magenta background and one with that "bird eye view"
    it seems I must find another file that work for me then
