Hey! I'm kinda new to this, no idea how to use this forum. Does anybody know if there is a way to have a Party Leader that doesn't fight in battles? I'm planning on making this actor completely useless except for moving around and talking to other NPC's, while the others do the fighting. Is there any way to do this?
Thanks ;^;

Normaly Eventcommand Set Movementroute "Change Graphic", that changes the Player Graphic of the visible Map Dude that is running around.
You never see him in Menu, there you keep your Regular fighting Actors.
Like if hes a Pet trainer, he runs around the Map as Human, but in Menu there are only Cats he trained as Actors.
Or does he need to be part of the Party in Menu Screen?

Would the main ch. have to be an event then? Sorry, it's all a bit confusing...

I think you could just change the “walk” character image of all potential party members to whoever your party leader is, and the player would never notice.

Your main character wouldn’t exist in terms of stats, equipment, etc - in the main menu, but would be visible on map and in dialogue.

This wouldn’t work if you wanted all the party members to “follow” him on map. That would probably require a special plugin...

No, iam talking about the figure running on the Game Map as Player. Normaly it has the Graphic of Party Member 1, but with what i explained,
you can give that Player on the Map another Graphic than Group Member 1 and Member 1 also keeps his Graphic, its just not used on the Map than. Not sure if this transists through Map change, but even therefor are solutions available.

Sorry iam not native English and i was missing the correct words to explain, i hope some more words do the same job.
