your story editor is great and all but twine is good too and its also web based. even if it was just an alternative. not even incorporating it into the editor, just uploading it when completely finished and being able to publish it here as a story.
but they dont let you store your stories on their site, you guys should let us be able to upload twine stories, they're probably smaller in file size than the stories that are generated on this site.
i started working on a game on here, i moved over to twine because it was easier to do the stuff i wanted, but i still want to post it here. please consider this
It actually probably wouldn't be that hard. Twine is completely free to use and whatever you create you are allowed to do with what you please. Including selling it as a product. Many twine games are on steam. Secondly twine games export as HTML format. So all you would need to do is make it so you can upload HTML files when creating a story. I'm not saying the ability to be able to edit within cys editor, I'm just saying be able up upload the HTML file in place of making a story here.
Integrating twine would literally only help your site, but somehow this is like 'recruiting Jews into the nazi army' and how twine is shit, when in reality it is a very large upgrade compared to this sites editor. Again, I am not saying to implement the twine editor into this site. I'm just saying being able to upload your twine games (which are in HTML format) to this site, like you would upload a picture to an image website.
There must be a misunderstanding. The site already has the ability to upload files to it. All that would have to be done is that when you upload a file and press play story, it opens the twine html format story, instead of the cys made story.
Twine exports to its own story viewer.
Here is an example
My first story on here was originally written in Twine for simplicity. Then I literally copy and pasted it all into CYS. It didn't take more than a few hours, so unless your Twine game is reaaaally complicated with loads of variables and coding then it might be easier just to redo it. Unless it's that long.
To be honest, it's programs like Twine which pushed me towards Cystia in the first place. 90% of Twine games aren't games at all IMO, you're just presented with bad poetry and lines taken straight out of Tumblr which have to be "deep" for some reason...It's click-click-click-clickety-click to get to another one-line page, and another, until hours later you realised that the game actually never gave you a choice. I might as well have read an eBook instead because that's as much interactivity I ever got from it. And that's the popular Twine games in the community, like that story which is about climbing a giant vine or something and the game forces you to click 2000 times with no freedom or deviation.
I hope your Twine game is more interactive and interesting then the kind I usually see, however. If so then it would be nice to see it as a storygame.
"Twine games aren't games at all IMO, you're just presented with bad poetry and lines taken straight out of Tumblr which have to be "deep" for some reason..."
Seriously, if I can copy/pasta 15 of my stories from Infinite Story, the OP can certainly take the time to do a single one from Twine.
Twine has the ability to be very complex, just because pseudo-poets use it for their "games" doesn't detracts from what its able to do. Yeah, mine was actually a game, but I can't figure out, at all the formatting for variables in CYS.
I started making it in CYS but Twine has way easier tutorials to understand than these articles here, which don't even tell you the formatting of the variables, unless im just being directed to the wrong articles from google.
Don't blame Twine for the bad creators it attracts. It's better than you're making it seem.
mizal, lol i dont get why you continue to attack me. Twine is exactly what this site is, except much further developed and is continuously updated. Change isn't always bad, I know you've been using the same editor since 2001 but you have to accept change sometimes, especially when its blatantly better.
Being able to upload Twine stories would only be a good thing for this site. It would be moving in a forward direction instead of being stagnant. This is the "feature wishing well" after all. Don't get why you guys get so personal.
So yeah, it would take some coding. Definitely think you guys are way over complicating it just for the sake of trying to make me look like an idiot, its pretty immature. It definitely wouldn't take "recoding the entire site" to do. You know what seems much harder to do than to program a button that allows you to upload an HTML file and then another button to open said file? Creating this entire website. Whoever made this site probably has the capabilities to do it, its just if they want to do it.
It's a wonder why you just don't stay on twine then.
Lol, please name 100 reasons on this list of "nearly infinite" reasons.
And social medias sites interact with each other literally all the time, not quite sure what you're on about.
Well here's one. Banned for being a trolling fucktard.
Seriously, everyone explained this to you both politely and otherwise. You're either deliberately ignoring everyone or you're just really that much of a retard. Either one wouldn't surprise me at this point.
We're not here to accommodate your self entitled bitching, let alone put up with you when you're not exactly a contributing member in the first place.
Since you like it there so much, feel free to plague the Twine community with your brand of stupidity.
