So I want to make a game for my schizofrenic brother. and I would like to add a feature to the game. I have no idea how to program in ruby, never done it before. I do know basic and Qbasic.

I think it would be nice to add a character creation at the beginning of the game. To allow the player to select a character and/or class. I don't expect someone to show me a fully customizable creation script. but just something that allows the player to change classes and gender, and something I've added to the game called faction.

any advice is greatly appreciated.

You can do this with basic eventing - don't need to script.


Just use a series of Show Choices commands to allow selection of character and class, and use the Change Actor Graphic and Change Actor Class commands to set those things based on the choices made. Only use one actor.

You are probably going to have to use a switch or variable to determine if the male or female character was chosen so that you can have accurate face graphics.

The more I read Calvin and Hobbes as an adult, the more I deeply respect Bill Watterson. Plenty of stuff flew over my head, but now that I'm old enough to appreciate the viewpoints he shared with the fun and imagination? I am grateful that C&H was basically my early childhood.
After years of relying on others and the community to help with making my games, I've decided to delve into the world of scripting. Thought I'd share a few simple scripts that I made that I'm very proud of and excited about!

Redesigning characters after such a long time feels great. Makes me excited to work on an old game again.

It's been that long since I wrote a plugin, it took me 4 attempts to realize it's != rather than #. In a 40-line plugin, 20 of those lines being documentation!
