Here I will be showing you how to make your game show an error message and crash on purpose. 


So first, we need our message. So in a script call, say


msg = "Text."




That'll set what text is going to come up. 


Next, we need to actually insert it into the message. So in the same script call, right underneath that, put, 



msgbox(sprintf(msg))




Where msgbox is the error window. After you're done that, set your event trigger (I'd recommend player touch). And maybe set a graphic. 


Now it should look something like this:

But, you'll also notice that the game keeps going after that, but in windowed form. If you would like the game to close directly after, go into your script call, and right below the last line, put "exit" which is the equivalent of saying "SceneManager.exit", which closes the game. Any script calls involving the SceneManager usually don't need a definition, so we don't need to define "exit" either. Now, save your event, and start your game. It should spawn the error message upon touching the event. 


For most, you may not need this in your game (though you never know), but I find this to be a rather good scripting exercise because you can play around with it and take it apart to see what does what. Hope you enjoyed this!

For me doesn't work... As soon as I trigger the event it sends an error message


Script 'Game Interpreter' line 1411 : Names error occured


unitialized constant Game_Interpreter::Text

I am very surprised that you actually attempted to use this. And I kind of forgot about this tutorial, to be honest. 


But, I kind of overlooked something crucial. Which is, what the script call should look like all together. 


msg = "Insert text here."

Code:
msgbox(sprintf(msg))


exit


So, do you have all of this? (Except for perhaps the exit if you don't want to close the game.)

I wonder... If I develop my own game hacks, does it count as beating the game my own way?

Thank you Dsiver for this amazing plugin! :kaothx:
My favorite kind of progress? Reverse progress! First, change some small feature of your game. Second, go back through and change 6,000 tiny things related to that minor alteration just to get your game playable again. What fun!
