New game idea

Postby dbuske » Thu Nov 06, 2014 2:40 pm

I am going to start a new AM game.
It is to be called "A Bogus History of the SteamPunk Parallel Universe."
It is about a guy Danny who claims to have fell into the SteamPunk parallel universe.
He is kind of nutty, and claims he was considered a god there.
It is the same America and the same people, but they developed differently.
Different clothes and technology.
I am collecting up SteamPunk photos.
My concern is finding room for a lot of text. It will be kind of like Amadeus narrated by Danny.
Any suggestions for handling a lot of text?

VBscript help?

Postby dbuske » Fri Nov 07, 2014 3:40 pm

The documentation for write and read ini has no code examples. It is not clear at all.
Could someone respond with example code for Action.WriteINI and Action.ReadINI
Thank you
I assume I write the text in any word processor and then name it. Put it in the AD directory
Then call the ini file from the frame properties, VBscript area

Ini files are great for holding values, but I not really for large amounts of text. Look at the routine I wrote as explained in Issue 15 of the BBB: http://hickchickgames.com/am_magazine/bbb15.pdf. Let me know if you have any questions.
