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.

Happy treason day, Colonial friends <3

I am officially amused. One of the NPCs in my project is basically meant as the guy you check in with to point you where you should go next, including if you’ve been away for a bit and have forgotten.

I can conclusively say he does his job nicely. I was out of town over the weekend. I had forgotten what I was working on, so I checked what I had last done with him for a reminder. ^.^
While talking about anime with a friend got the idea of doing this. :kaopride:
