That's a pretty good way of donig it! When I did boulder puzzles in my 2000/2003 projects they only had a simple push mechanic and I remember just telling the player to exit and reenter the scene if they got stuck.

I've always included a reset button of some sort even with push only puzzles.

The method that @hiddenone used to do the pulling though is pretty spiffy. Definitely will be yoinking it myself in the future.

Having to reset puzzles over and over while testing is why I came up with the pulling part. :rswt After rolling a rock against a wall one too many times, I decided it would just be easier if I figured out a way to let players fix any mistakes they made without having to reset the entire puzzle.

This blog post was super helpful as a guideline. I would have had no idea how to even begin implementing a push/pull system if it wasn't for this. Thank you so much!

I used this post as a basis for understanding how a push/pull system should work but took out the scripting and used if/else clauses exclusively just because it was easier for me to wrap my head around.

I also had no need for any of the direction fix calls so I left that out. For anybody else who struggles with scripts, this is also a functional option.

So I'm practicing ITC with a spirit box, and decide to try to contact my deceased soulmate. It actually gave me multiple identifiers. Me, still a bit skeptical, asked aloud "Fine but does he still love me?" and the box spoke and printed the word "Forever" at the same time. Been a mess of tears since. :kaocry:
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
Why is there so much month left at the end of money? D=
Hello humans! How goes your day in this journey of living? I hope it is good, for I am human like you, and I am feeling great! Worship the altar.
