I've got some questions/problems.

Postby Makopi » Tue Dec 16, 2008 5:43 am

Okay, well, I started using Novelty today.
I have a couple of questions...

1. I was wondering, how do I edit the text of the default interactive menu? All it says is 'Option 1', so on, so forth. I would like to edit it to say, 'Play Game' and such, but I can't figure out how to edit it. ^^;

2. I have a little bit of trouble with the dialogue. I figured out how to make the text boxes and edit it to dialogue, but I can't figure out how to make a box surround it. It looks kind of odd by itself, so I would like a box to surround the dialogue.

3. When I preview the game, the BGM I added doesn't play. Does it just not play in the preview, or is it going to actually be in the game and just not in the preview?

1. The 'Default menu' is not really an object that you place in the scene. It's a template designed to hold up to eight menu items. It's meant to be used by the 'Show interactive menu'-action.

To show you what I mean, you could try this:
1. In the action window, add a 'Show interactive menu'-action.
2. Then in the property window, set the menu template to 'Default menu'
3. Change the text of Option 1 and 2.
4. Run the game.

If you wanted to make a start menu I suggest you use individual buttons.

2. In the Asset library you have the 'Default text border', which is a box meant to around text. There are also a couple of Border objects that you can wrap around your text. Simply drag the blue handles.
The borders might appear over your text. In that case, right-click on them and select "Move down" or "Move to back" until they're underneath the text.

3. In the action window, create a 'Play BGM'-action at the start of your page.
