Well, I found a script that works exactly like I want it to, however, I can't get it to function right.

The script below was created by someone to allow 8 directional movement. I have multiple player characters in the game, aside from the Player A(Boy) and Player B(Girl). The script I have makes character movement 8 directional automatically when I install it. Say I only want the 8 directional character movement script to only work on a single player (Player C) which I have created in the Pokemon Essentials editor. How can I pull this off?



If this is not possible, how can I make it so that I can turn the script off/on within an event?

Script:

Code:
#==============================================================================
# ++ 8-Direction Characterset Edit ver. 1.01 ++
#  Script by ParaDog
#  http://2d6.parasite.jp/
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Additional 'diagonal' movement is now possible by pushing combinations of the
# vertical and horizontal controls (up & left, etc) simultaneously.
#
# Additional charsets for the 8-directional movement are to be stored within
# the "Graphics/Characters" folder, just like the regular charactersets.
#
# Name the new diagonal movement charactersets the same as the regular ones,
# but with a new '_quarter' extension. As such, you would name the very first
# characterset: 001-Fighter01_quarter.
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Additional notes:
# This system can be used with the 'Dash Characterset Edit' system, but please
# place this script 'BELOW' the fore-mentioned Dash script for it to work.
#
# As you can combine the two scripts (Dash and 8-Directional), you can also use
# charactersets that show diagonal running action, also stored within the same
# "Graphics/Characters" folder.
#
# Naming the new graphics would require the inclusion of both '_dash' and the 
# '_quarter' extensions as shown here: 001-Fighter01_dash_quarter.
