Body

What you have to know:

1.variables

2.enter password

3.fork options

4.show picture

5.move picture

6.switches



1.Setup

First make your make your menu with I draw (search for it on Yahoo or Google then download it from the site that you find it at) then make a cursor with I draw or what ever drawing program you have. Then make a variable and call it cursor position and then make a variable for you enter password event lets call it cursor button.



2.Placing

Make an event and set it on auto start and set your pictures where you want them to go.

and make a variable that places the pictures lets call it Picture X and Picture Y,

and set cursor position to 1 then make a picture event for your menu and set it where you want to place it. Then do that for the cursor and set the placing thing to variable and put the 2 picture x and picture y variables into the 2 slots. Then make a switch lets call it setup then make it turn on and make another page. Make a switch in the event conditions and make it setup. Your code should look like:



Variable Ch:[????:cursor position] Set-1

Variable Ch:[????:picture x] Set-?
Variable Ch:[????:picture y] Set-?
Show Picture: 1 menu [?,?]
Show Picture; 2 cursor [v: picture x,v: picture y]

Change Switch: [????:Setup] - on







3.Events and coding

make an event that also has the setup switch in event conditions. Copy this code here and you should be just about fine.



Enter Password:[????:cb]
FORK Optn[varb:????:cb]-1

Variable Ch:[????:px]+?
Move Picture; 2 [v: picture x,v: picture y]

Variable Ch [????:cp] + 1



end case

FORK Optn[varb:????:cursor button]-4

Variable Ch:[????:picture x]-?
Move Picture; 2 [v: picture x,v: picture y] the cursor up

Variable Ch [????:cursor position] - 1



end case



FORK Optn [varb:????:cp]-1

FORK Optn [varb:????:cb]-5

mssge:You pressed selection 1!


end case



end case



I uprgraded this a bit to try to make more understandable so the people who CAN'T READ very well will understand this. This basicly is just the cursor movement part.If you use this then put me in your credits please!You can also download an example from my website at:
