I need to know how to create Variables. The variables page isn't really helping me and I need to know how I make them in my story.
Yes but I need a helpful guide on how to make and add variables to my story.
I want to make my story more interactive for people who play it e.g. names, leveling up, and combat.
But I need help from another member.
Though while I haven't looked at your game, I'm really getting the impression you may need to work more on honing basic writing skills before worrying about tacking on more gamelike elements.
What is the plot you're going with, for starters? That's going to make or break it faster than whatever vague ideas you have about a combat system will.
@Endmaster This should probably be moved? E: oh look that's Killa right there. Hi Killa. Should this be moved?
Well do you know how I can put a currency system into my game. So if I wanted to have the player be able to buy a dagger they would pay 100 gold or something. How do I make sure this is doable in the game? What do I type in the variables?
I really, really think it may be best for you to just focus on writing a simple story while you're starting out.
Actually, they know how to do that now. They're still trying to comprehend the idea of variables though :c
They keep asking me what they have to put in in the variable name to make it so that the item they're trying to sell will cost money. I'm kind of thinking of handing them to Brad.
Urrrrgh. Hang on...
Now with this handy visual guide, no one ever needs to ask questions about variables again! You're welcome, CYS.
Don't worry, this seems like a very special child so I'm sure they're still plenty confused.
I advised them to work on the "story" part of storygame first, since I looked at their game. The writing seemed rather ah...stilted and didn't flow well. The run on sentences and oddly placed commas did not help.
Oh well. I hope they figure out what to do. Pictures might help more than words :)
