Easier Way to Make a Name Creator?

6 years ago

Is there an easier way to make a name creator in your game than the standard method?  Or do I have to stick with it?

 

If there is an easier way, how can I do it?

Easier how? If you mean by not having to use one variable per letter, then there's really no way around that.

Oh, okay.  It just seemed very time-consuming, so I didn't know if there was a more efficient way of doing it.

I wanted to use the name creator for my LGS storygame, but I thought it was too time-consuming as well. Instead, I decided to for something a bit easier:

Once the player picks their gender, they get to pick one of two names based on their gender (Like I used Clyde and Rick for males, and Cassandra and Emily for female). Here's the code I used (with the variable being NAME):

%%NAME%=%0%Unknown%%%%NAME%=%1%Clyde%%%%NAME%=%2%Rick%%%%NAME%=%3%Cassandra%%%%NAME%=%4%Emily%%

If you check out the story, you'll see how it comes out.

Ah.  I see what you did there.  And it's a pretty simple method, but it kind of limits the customization, I feel.  Thanks for the tip.

By the way: Looking forward to your game now!
