ah, thanks for letting me know, it's a relief I'll have time to play with editer without inflicting whatever I test with it on everyone else.
@dark, hello to you too. The reason I sepcifically describe myself as "dark" rather than "darkempathy" is that on various other places around the interweb, I use the monica of just plane "dark" and it's possible that some people here may have come across me elsewhere.
Still, I know there is a lot of dark around, maybe we are living in dark times?
I could embark on lots of bad jokes about dark lands, dark ages, and maybe piling everyone called dark together to make a dark tower but I think I'll spare everybody that.
Just to be serious for a second, if anyone has any suggestions which of the various help articals I should begin with on the editer that would be good to know, sinse unfortunately as they're not ordered it's sometimes a little difficult to know which one gives a more basic outline of say how to create character stats and increase or decrease them without going into more complex scripting business.
hello and some basic questions on 12/29/2012 8:46:23 PM
I'm dark. some people may know me from www.audiogames.net, but if not, hello to everyone.
i've been a fan of gamebooks for quite a while, and so was really pleased to be directed to this site, indeed I have very much enjoyed the stories I've seen thus far.
of course however, I have some questions. i do appologize if these are relatively simple answers, however hopefully people will bare with me.
firstly, I'd obviously be really interested in writing my own story, however I would like to have chance to play with the editer and perhaps create something as a tester so that I can get used to it's functions. Sinse I'd eventually like to create something with stats and random dice rolls, I'm obviously going to have to learn a bit, however I'd rather not inflict my practice on everyone else.
In one of the articals however I noticed a mention that stories could only be deleted by mods on the site, and that this was generally a bad thing to request done. Is this only true of published stories?
if I created a test story purely for the purpose of playing with the editer, could I delete it later since obviously I'd not be publishing it.
Secondly, are there any recommended articals on how to use the editer, or a specific manual? I've seen articals mentioning scripting, variables etc but I'm not sure what order to read these in to get the basics before I start moving on to more advanced matters, is there a more complete guide anywhere?
Any advice on either point would be much appreciated.
