3 or 4 at a time, but I like the idea of being able to swap.

3 of 'em. With a 4th one being optional.

I'm thinking something along the lines of Lufia: The Legend Returns. Had like nine playable characters, and all of them had great stories. But maybe that's too much for my first game.

At any one time, 1-4. On average that could be used throughout the story, 9-12.

One playable character, and sometimes an uncontrollable ally.

The most I've felt comfortable with was 3, but that's because in real life I'm not a huge party person. I think 3 is good if you want diversity but don't want to overload yourself with making so many different character trait and abilities.

4 on the team at a time, but you can swap them in battle. Total you will ever have, 11.

My games, start with one, then 2 coz’ they’re siblings or buddies like Double Dragon. 3 just in case. 4 kinda badass. Y’know? This would become ‘General Discussion’.

I'm planning on a 4 person battle party, 9 total characters. I'm also considering an in-battle party swap, but I haven't decided.

4, usually adding more just leaves you with a lot of characters standing around without anything to do in cutscenes.

It should never be "how many characters can I add". It should always feel organic - and have purpose to the story. Chrono Trigger had a few party members but really touched on story/motives for all of them.

@IAmJakeSauvage That's the best way to approach this in story-driven games, in my opinion. Only have as many party members as is needed, or which you can at least make interesting.

opening old GIMP files is a blessing and a curse because it can be fun to look at art you started once upon a time and want to finish BUT come to a total halt when you remember your past self forgot to create separate layers for most files

I got the pause Icon to use 6 frames instead of 4, PLUS it goes: top 1-2-3, bottom 1-2-3. And everything just by playing around with the code & i think i've figured the important parts out now <3
