I downloaded RPG Maker VX this morning & started making my game, so i then started doing events but now i don't know how to make it stop, it just keeps looping over & over again.
Im trying to create the an event for the beginning of my story.
How do i make it so that an event only occure once?
You put the "erase event" function at the bottom of the event code. It'll remove the event so that it doesn't play.
Another question, how do i add more characters to the game?
The only one i been able to have around is the character i control
And how do i make them move?
Go to the character menu. At the bottom left there's a box that says "number of players" (probably 8 ). You just change that. Then go to System (I think), top left corner there's a box that lists who your starting party is.
To create random NPCs (i.e people you can't control), create a blank event, give it a sprite, change autonomous movement to "random", speed to normal, and frequency to...whatever.
You main character is controlled via the direction keys on your keyboard.
