This is my first attempt to make a working choicescript game! I have really enjoyed playing others games, and decided to try making one myself.
You play as one of few remaining spirit gods, otherwise known as guardians. Tricked by humans, you will experience a major change in existence and experience a foreign world.
Please excuse the writing. What has been published thus far is still draft. Nothing is written in stone, and I will be experimenting on different techniques.
Chapter two is complete! I have posted the beginning which includes a portion of the character customization. I will not post the rest until both chapter one and two are somewhat edited.
Early choices reveal a paths to several differing story lines… These branches progress will not match that of the main story. Also, these choices negate the choice to customize character.
This game sound awesome! But there’s no link. Might want to check
If you need more help just pm me, I’d be glad to give you a hand
there is no link to go to
Sorry about that…maybe this works
Thanks, appreciate it. Your link comes up saying private though.
That’s so strange. Try
this? If that doesn’t work, type in ‘uploading game’ into the search bar by your icon and look through the more recent threads. I had a lot of trouble uploading my own link and that’s what helped me.
This link is still not working. sorry. Now I’m going to check my own link. You got me worried.
Edit - Have you created your personal account on the drop-box site? That seems to be the difference between my link and yours.
Did you compile the game before uploading it? That seems to be a link to the index file, which I think doesn’t work with newer dropbox accounts.
I think you also might want to change the www.dropbox part to dl.dropboxusercontent when you share the link to your compiled game.
If it’s still not working properly, there are further instructions, and also some screenshots,
here as well.
lol didn’t mean to make you worry
Not sure what is wrong, but I will have to wait to figure it out. Got work in 4 hours and I haven’t had an ounce of sleep. Sorry
@Mydoghasfleas Try this thread, you are having the same problems I had. Try it in the order I have it right now and if you are confused by the first two the third one is my summary of them both.
EDIT: The currently shipped version of compile.html in recent builds should work fine, there’s no to download the above version unless you’re having problems.
Look in your game’s top directory where the test files and the like are: (Non-transferable image)
Replace the current compile.html with the one you just downloaded (very important!).
Open your new compile.html in Firefox, after a variable amount of time (not too long though) you should see something similar to the following: (non-transferable image)
As instructed, download the file. That file should be a .html file and it should be a working copy of your game.
Upload this new mygame.html file to dropbox (doesn’t matter where).
Once it’s uploaded you need to obtain the sharing link, the method for which varies slightly depending on whether you do it through dropbox.com or the dropbox application.
Once you have the link (it should look something a little like the one below) Dropbox - mygame_complete.html - Simplify your life
Replace “www” with “dl” and “dropbox” with “dropboxusercontent”, like this:
My First ChoiceScript Game
There you have, did that make sense?I’m sorry it’s not a bit easier, but it’s the best I can do right now.I did try and make some changes to the compile file that would allow it to be uploaded to Dropbox and give you the link automatically, but the API doesn’t want to work locally
I clicked on this link:
In English: Basically try replacing your version of compile.html with this one: Dropbox - compile.html - Simplify your life
selected "download"once downloaded i clicked “show in folder” and got it in my download folder renamed to "compiler"i click on that and it brings me to this which is clicked “compile” and click on “here”
then i click "open with firefox"and a working copy of my game appears. My computer also downloads the file into my temporary folder. i move the file into my dropbox. I right click and select “copy dropbox link”
here it is: Dropbox - Error
change it like you said: IT WORKS!
Tell me what i did wrong or if it works for you!
Explaining the last part of my post. Someone had said they changed the dl to di or something and it worked so I tried that. Also in the “IT WORKS!” Part I had something that looked like
My First ChoiceScript Game But I deleted it and replaced it with “IT WORKS!” Because people were trying it and I didn’t want people to try my demo at that time.
Hope that helps. In the future if you have problems a quick search at the top of your screen tend to give good results.
Hey I don’t want to spoil your fun, but I’m using an Iphone and I can’t access the game using your link this sounds like a good game just wish I could try it out to see what it is actually like.
@adamthecowdog His link is incorrectly made. You can read people’s stories on iPhones once the link is correct.
Well I guess I will wait until he fixes the link cause theres nothing I can do about it right now.
I think I have gotten this new link at the top to work. Guess I will find out shortly.
This is the intro chapter to the game, and the opening scene. Next chapter will give you a chance to create your character (gender and other options), as well as get a relative idea of the setting and time and such. Sorry to leave you hanging on the small info this first chapter provides, but my time per week is limited.
Remember, this is only a rough draft, and I am still learning choicescript. Some point this week I will go back and really buff this chapter out. The real purpose of this game is to gauge interest, and become comfortable with this system of writing. Thanks again to those who have helped me out!
And I know It’s only a short preview lol.
Even though it’s short, let me know what you think. How can it be improved?
What would you like to see moving forward?
I’ve just clicked through without reading anything and I got to “play again” so it looks like the whole thing works! Nice job.
Thanks, it feels good to finally have a slight grasp on how to work the basics!
There is an extra word whenever it asks how you feel abou humans it says curious twice in a row
Thanks, I will fix that but when I go back to edit.
