Hello,

I recently started using RPG maker VX ace. When I started there was a main character. I used the character generator to make a new and custom character but I found that I could only use it as a NPC. However I want that character to be the main character. I searched for this problem but to no avail. Please Help and kindly explain how to set it as the main character.

Thanks! :)   :)

In data base, go to the first tab 'Actor'.  Select the character you want to change; select the graphic box showing the sprite; select the sprite you want.

This is a very basic question and so I strongly urge you to spend some time with tutorials and just exploring the engine to get an understanding of the essentials, otherwise you will waste a ton of time later on, and have huge amounts of frustration.  Andar has helpfully put together a thread with the sort of thing you need; here is the link: http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/14727-a-starting-point-for-new-users-v08/?hl=+starting%20+point%20+users

Thanks for the reply. I am a beginner and I spend time on tutorials but because of my limited internet connections and slow speed, I have not gotten far. That is why i have been using forums. Anyways thanks for your help and i was successful in doing so. :)

Find as many written tutorials as you can and save the webpages to your machine so you can go back to them offline whenever you want. You can either save them as html or just copy all the contents and dump them into a blank wordpad document. If you can find pdf's, so much the better.

There's also a help file with the engine itself - F1 from the editor will bring it up. Would be a good idea to look through it too, as it contains the basics of creating characters, maps, events, setting up the database, battles, etc.

I'm still undecided weather or not I should add minor swearing to my game. Like I'm going for an all ages demographic... but the idea of a cartoon character saying dammit, hell, or crap in normal conversation is really funny to me.
