Hey, Everyone. I’m new to this community and thereby thought that I’d say hello, introducing myself. My name is B. L. Blankenship. I’m a published Western Horror author. My books are extremely violent in perpetually every way & I intend to make a text based Western Horror/Splatter Western that is likewise. In truth, I just found out about “Choice of Games” today at like 3:30AM, or something. You can find more out about me as an author via: “www.facebook.com/GodWalksTheDarkHills”, howbeit plugging my page isn’t my full intent on being on here. Frankly, I know that I’ll need some help. So straight out the gate, let me ask a few questions to programmers:
Q1: On the startup.txt you use it like a table of contents for the different pages as you would in a concordance of a Choose your own Adventure Book, correct? If not, please explain.
Q2: The startup is where I set up my menu “credits”, “about”, etc, right? If not please explain.
Q3: Can I make it where the game is is Sepia for everyone, you know - cause it’s a Western.
Q4: Assuming that I am going to have a STATS page, how do I set that up (ex. Strength x%; Dexterity x%; Luck x%, etc)?
Q5: Regarding story and choices, do I write them like this example:
You are in the woods and the path forks in three different directions. What do you do?
…Is that correct, if not please write out that scenario where it’d do what I’m saying, but correctly.
Q6: Is there a way to have the games interlocked with each other for the purpose of a scoreboard (i.e. players’ highscores)? *Anyone who knows what L.O.R.D. (Legend of the Red Dragon) is likely gets where those scoreboard thoughts are coming from. I know that if that were possible it’d create the opportunity to have a non-linear mission based game like Grand Theft Auto online meets L.O.R.D (i.e. a true “Never-Ending Story”). Just curious.
Q7: Finally, are there any ways to put pictures into any of the parts/pages of the game for cover art, or story art?
