    I am not sure where I should list this issue, 

    One of my custom characters loses his skills and even his portrait when he hits level 8. I am pretty sure it is not a script error since my other characters are not effected. The only class related script I have installed is the change class script by Tsukihime, but this character does not change class in the game ever, he just levels up. Typing that though the other two characters do not lose their skills or portraits but they do change classes eventually (only with side quests)  so maybe it does deal with that script?

    Cheers,

    TheSpartanTraveler.

    This sounds like a script issue really.  Can you post the scripts you are using?

    How does he level? Just typical, through battles?


    I agree it sounds like a script issue. Levelling has NOTHING to do with character portraits, and RTP only allows you to ADD skills at new levels, not lose them. Did you check what configuration needs to be done with all the scripts you're using, and have you done that?


    The only other thing I can think of is if it's NOT a level-based thing, but in the process of levelling (ie - battle), he's gotten some state or a skill has been used on him that removes skills or calls a common event or something that does these things.

    Sure here is the list of main Scripts. The only thing that kinda confuses me is that the first two custom characters work fine so far.  I was thinking of just remaking the character, but the issue is probably something I should fix.

    and then some custom ones for minigames

    As for common events, i actually do not have that many.  Just a few for fishing and one for an item to call another item.

    Yes, better to find what's causing it and fix it - otherwise how do you know the same thing isn't going to happen again?


    Links, please ;)

    OK apparently at some point I added an event to turn that characters portrait and sprite invisible. I have no reason for it being there in my memory,  Yarr!  Well at least I found the issue!.
