How to use rpg maker vx characters
There's a nifty system in RMVX that allows you to have multiple characters on one sprite sheet, or single, and let's them move "up a bit" if they're characters instead of being locked into the background. That feature moves any non object up a few pixels to look like they're really part of the tileset environment. You can use these by having a special character in the file name. Some people have made script additions that let you add more special properties too!
- Character "!": Doesn't move up. Useful for things like static objects or doors.
- Character "$": Sprite is a single sheet. Many you download for Rpg Maker VX will be like this. There aren't a lot of people making 8 characters at a time per sheet. However, you can fuse them all together in a graphics editor if you'd like. Even MS Paint will do if you're used to the program.
- Character "^": There is a special script that lets you use Rpg Maker XP styled character sprites in a RMVX game this way. It ignores the first set of frames.
