Drop items without using $ITEMSTATE? on 10/30/2017 7:34:16 AM

If that's the case I may scrap the idea altogether. I thought the click to add was pretty cool, but I suppose if people are tired of that, they'll be quite annoyed at what I have now, where you click a treasure chest, then use it, to get your item.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that this works, but it is pretty damned clunky.

I thought of one clunky solution, but I'm hoping for something more efficient. Would this work, though?

Suppose I have a sword I want to add. Have an item (with the picture of the sword) called "Check condition of sword," with instructions to click on the item to add it. When the player clicks on that item, it takes them to an identical looking page, except I add the script $ITEMSTATE1 := 1, and when they go to that page the sword is in their inventory. I could add a limit of uses to the "Check condition of sword" item to 1, and then I assume it disappears. From then on you should have the normal sword in the inventory, except it is tied to $ITEMSTATE, which means I can script $ITEMSTATE := 0 later to get rid of it.

Could that work? Also, is there a better way?

I created some items and made them available on a certain page. You then get to click on icons to add them to your inventory, which I think is pretty cool. However, reading the tutorials, it appears that if you want the items to be automatically dropped when the user clicks on a page link, you have to use $ITEMSTATE := 1 to add the item and then $ITEMSTATE := 0 to drop it, meaning that while there IS a way to have items automatically dropped, you have to sacrifice the mechanic of clicking on a picture of the item to get them, and instead rely on page links to add them.

Is there a way that I can add the items by the player clicking on the item picture, but then have the items all dropped later by the player clicking on a page link? Or do I have to just deal with not being able to click on the item pictures to add them to the inventory?

Wait, I think I resolved the problem. I think it might have to do with me sending the player back to the same page, or go back.

When I send the player back to page right before the page where you click the link to get the items, it works.

No it does not, not if I have a link at the bottom. I will try saving and restarting. Restarted the game: Nope. It only works if there is no link at the bottom of the page.

I put some items on a particular page, and as long as I have no link for you to leave the page, you are able to add the items to your inventory. But if I put a link, including even "previous page," when you click on the items it just resets the page.

One of the items sends you to a new chapter, but other than that I don't have any thing connected to the items except an image and where they are found. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or some sort of work around?

I guess I could make an item called "return to previous page," but that would be kind of tacky. Any suggestions?

I will try.

Thanks. If I do that, can I put something else in another page without a conflict?

This works for every page in the story? Where to you paste it?
