ScribbleSquash Tutorial

Video 1.0

(There are some minor sound artefacts, I need to solve, and this was performed without a script. I'm working on an updated version of this program which will be scripted and recorded later on in the future. But this will get new users up and running pretty quickly.)

Flowchart

This flowchart represents the pre-loop data, and should allow users to more easily identify the variables, files and UDT's used in the making of this tutorial. This is all pre-loop stuff, but I've found lists like this useful in the past.


Source Code

main.agc


gamesettings.agc

media.agc

menu.agc

mainloop.agc

Cool Tutorial as always. Did wonder why the global variables were not working as I was expecting , thanks.

Global's need to be specified in the main.agc file, at the beginning of the file, as I understand it (and I may be wrong, feel free to correct me if anyone knows better) all variables declared outside a function, in the main.agc file are automatically global. I think my example works, because the gosubs, effectively create variables "as if" they were running from within the main.agc file. So subroutines seem to be a way of circumventing this rule.

This is all just based on my observations so far, I'm fully prepared to be wrong! This code example didn't use functions, so I may find later on that functions don't see the variables created via the subroutines. I've not put it to the test yet.

Please note that UTD's do not work in this way, and appear to need to run in the main.agc file, subroutines will not circumvent this rule.

Make a sticky titled "AGK Tutorials".
This way new users will be able to access them with ease

Tutorial is longer than last one. I shall enjoy it.

EDIT: What software did you use to make that flow chart? I'm doing something similar for my game.

Regards,

Excellent tutorial, learnt a few things I didn't know. The music was overpowering when you were testing and I couldn't hear your voice, perhaps next tutorial comment out the music just in case.

I reject your reality and substitute my own...

Daniel, great tutorial, but yes the music was drowning out your voice and I had to turn down the video when you went to test your code.

You can run the music at first to show that it works then if you try to comment it out then everything should be good.

Yeah the audio was dodgy as hell on that video. I'll redo the whole thing when I've got more time. Too many things to do, and CloneSprite("Daniel") doesn't work in real life.

Daniel, it would be great if you could make some more tutorials, I would like to get into physics and networking and stuff like that.

In fact I wouldn't mind paying something small for your tutorials for download. Just make sure the audio is good and we are all set.

Already ahead of you, I've started studying physics, once I'm confident in using it myself I'll put something up. Networking will be next on my list.
