You can have up to 8 player characters. If you're clever, you could have even more than that.

How do you add them? I want to add more as well but I don't know how. Is this thread about Pokemon? I just found it through google.

I thinks you have to change playermetadata in PokemonMap (find
Code:
MetadataPlayerH=17
and add new lines for other players) and also in the module PokemonMetadata (find
Code:
"playerH"=>[17,"essssss",:PBTrainers]
)..
Finally you have to find, in Pokemon Editor,
Code:
["PlayerH",PlayerProperty,
   _INTL("Specifies player H.")]
Add the necessary ;]

I don't know if this's all.. I didn't tested yet "
And sorry for the bad english.. I'm Italian eheh

In addition to what xalien95 said, you'll also need to edit 3 defs in PokemonUtilities to accept the new valid IDs (search for MetadataPlayerA).

I... I really don't know what to say to this.

You should note that Essentials is not related to ROM hacking - it is completely different.

Just to add my two cents, I made a tutorial about how to add extra characters to Essentials a long time ago. You can find it here: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=238218

It may help since I tried to cover every little step of it so there wouldn't be any confusion, and you have to be careful about the numbering of the items (which I also detail in that thread). I'm surprised you didn't find it by doing a search in Game Development before posting ;)

I'm assuming Essentials hasn't changed how that works. If my tutorial is too out of date on that to work in the newer releases, I apologize.

Your tutorial's a bit out of date now. You might want to add an updated version to the wiki.

Sure thing. I'll see if I have the latest release and try it out again to see what does and doesn't work. I'll update the wiki page when I finish that.
