Body

Hi, I’m Kevin Adamson (kdaproduction known as) and I’m 13, well, I love making games so this is my first Tutorial!

I’ve always wanted to make those puzzle games where you have 2 to 4 Different Characters (which I’ve used in my ‘It’s a Mine Gift’ which will approximately

be out sometime in April) that have different Powers that are needed to be swapped during a puzzle. I’m going to explain with what I did in ‘It’s a Mine

Gift’ (or is doing!)

Well what I did was make a ‘SelectCharacterScreen’ and placed 4 Different Characters (let’s call them by their real names ‘Kelvin, Laura, Chris & Vikki’)
And made them there own player slots (in the database)
Then what I did with each one was this (for Kelvin)
<>Messg: Play as Kelvin?
<>Show Choices: Yes\No
:[Yes] Case
<>Change Heroes Party:(Player that picks first character)->Remv
<>Change Heroes Party:Kelvin->Add
<>Teleport: {Starting Map}
<>Change Switch: [0001:Adventurestart]-ON Set
<>
:End Case
<>
:[No] Case
<>
:End Case
<>

Now put a Event on each page that looks like this…

<>Disable System Menu: Disable
<>Enter Password: [0001]
(Make sure the Tick is on the Esc key as well or this won’t work)
<>Fork Optn:Varbl[0001]-6 (which is the Escape key)
<>Fork Optn:Heroes:Kelvin
<>Change Heroes:-Kelvin->Remv
<>Change Heroes:-Laura->Add
<>
<>Excepting Case
<>Fork Optn:Heroes:Laura
<>Change Heroes:-Laura->Remv
<>Change Heroes:-Chris->Add
<>
<>Excepting Case
<>Fork Optn:Heroes:Chris
<>Change Heroes:-Chris->Remv
<>Change Heroes:-Vikki->Add
<>
<>Excepting Case
<>Fork Optn:Heroes:Vikki
<>Change Heroes:-Vikki->Remv
<>Change Heroes:-Kelvin->Add
<>
<>Excepting Case
<>
<>End Case
<>
<>End Case
<>
<>End Case
<>
<>End Case
<>
<>End Case
<>

So that’s my First Tutorial, Remember to look for my ‘It’s a Mine Gift’ On GamingW!!!
