Safe Code/clicking hotspots in specific order

Postby Eowyn » Tue Oct 16, 2012 1:24 am

Greetings to all of you who are still around (I note that these forums are quieter than they were a few years ago).

Although I have been using AM for years, I have only just commenced attempting to use VBScript. I have no problems understanding variables, but the syntax of VB Script has me somewhat confused.

I am trying to design a puzzle which recreates a security panel which requires the player to click on a sequence of four numbered buttons in a specific order. If the player clicks on the wrong buttons, or the correct buttons in the wrong order, I want an error message to be displayed; obviously if they click the buttons in the correct order, I want a door to unlock.

I have attempted to implement the code posted in 2005 by Skye, but I always get a syntax error, and I have not been able to work out why. I was wondering if something has been omitted from that tutorial. The sample game that was posted in relation to that post is no longer available.

I have also looked at the tutorial posted in 2008 by mercedes, but I don't think that will do exactly what I want it to do.

If anybody could provide a basic, step-by-step guide to how to do this I would be very grateful. A sample game which not only gives the script, but also shows the variables would also be useful.

Please be very gentle with me, as I find VBScript a bit confusing.

Thanks

I've done quite a few lessons on sequencing. Look at issue 19 of Bite by Byte...located here: http://www.adventuremaker.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=5888

If you still need help, I have other examples as well. Good luck!

Hi, I'm pretty sure this can be done without scripting as well. There is a tutorial for switches:

Test first with three buttons. Use the same logic to add more buttons. Now, I think I made a demo of this, but cannot access it right now. Let me know if you can figure it out, if not, I'll get the demo file for you.
