How to start a new game/project


#1

Okay, I finished the tutorial, and all of that, but now I can’t figure out how to start a plain thing for my game, will any notepad file work, or must I open it a certain way?w


#2

Notepad ++ for pc wrangler for mac are the most common programs use for now.


#3

Download the ChoiceScript folder from the link on the website.
Delete all the files in the scene folder except startup and choicescript_stats.
Edit those files using your text editor of choice - Notepad++ is probably the best one.

Hello, I have finished reading 6 of the Choice Games stories (The ORPHEUS Ruse, Meta Human Inc., and the whole Heroes Rise series) and I decided to check out the site, and that is when I saw the Choice Script and decided I wanted to attempt to make my own.

My question is: What folders do I need? Is the only folder I need for my own new project the mygame folder and its contents minus the listed files?

Startup, and Choicescript_stats
As well as whatever you want to call any additional chapters in your game.

Which aren’t actually folders- just text files. But the folders and files necessary are all contained within the CS download. The files have a sample tutorial-like game, which can be erased easily enough to start your own project. Just need to learn how via the instructions https://www.choiceofgames.com/make-your-own-games/choicescript-intro/ -many of which can be found through the links at the top right within the link I’ve provided.
