Hi all, I’d really like some help and/or advise on this. I want to give my readers the ability to change two main variables no matter their point in the game.
I had previously been attempting to do this using the stats screen, not realising until I was pretty sure I’d got the whole thing working perfectly that it wouldn’t ‘stick’, and that variables are reset to their game state upon exiting the stats screen.
The two variables in question control the display of unicode symbols allowing me to drop non immersion breaking hints into dialogue trees, this is basically with an ‘on’ ‘off’ state currently set to “1” or “2” and making use of the multireplace function, and the other variable controls the readers exposure to scenes depicting extreme panic and anxiety, this has three states and opperates using *if 's to skip over or redirect to alternate text.
So, two main questions really:
Is it possible to change a variable in the stat screen and carry that change back to the main game?
What are the rules on publishing finished choice script stories with additional, or changed, script files?
Sorry if this has been covered in another post somewhere, please redirect me if so.
