Hi! I’m new to this whole thing, and I need some help with making the player character, so if anyone knows how to put the character on screen and all of that, it would really help.

Hi, as a first step you should read the first chapters of the manual/help.
If you never programmed before, then my BASIC tutorial should help, too (find it here on the Help page)

1) open up a new program, and look at the top right corner for 4 buttons...
an up page, a draw page, a magnifying glass, and a triangle..

Click the draw page button... then select CHAR DESIGNER

2) at the bottom left you see #001, this means you are editing char#001

Use the big black area in the upper left to edit your character... use black, dark gray,gray, and white buttons to select a differerent color to draw with..

Tap the DISK button, then the SAVE button to save your character

Now click the little x button in the very top left corner to exit back

3) you will now see...


Your #'s may be different, but this is how NX saves your characters... add empty text space ABOVE this and add this code...

CELL 5,5,1


4) now hit the triangle button at the top right corner to run your program,...

... and PRESTO, your designed character is on the screen :D

If you are on pc, run your game, press ESC, then go press the Edit button, then press CHAR DESIGNER.

If you are on windows, use Notepad++ instead of Notepad(there is a bug with Notepad, use any text editor that supports non-windows new-line characters).
