Smile Game Builder Tutorial #34 – Bug Fix

SGB Tutorial #34 - Skyrim Styled Book Reading
No Comments

This is a simple fix for the oversight bug from the Skyrim Styled Book-Reading tutorial, which I only noticed after the video was uploaded.

The bug occurs where pages of the first book in the multiple book choices showed right before transitioning to the second book.

I was going to put this in another video, but since it’s so short I figured it didn’t merit one, so here’s the fix:

Bug Fix

In the Check Cancel Reset event, simply add the following event command:

   Add Variable box #33 Book # = 0.

The final result should look like this:

And that’s it! Whichever book you choose now displays the pages correctly.

This week’s Smile Game Builder tutorial, #34: Skyrim Styled Book-Reading, is online.

I show how to create a Skyrim styled book-reading system, where you can press the left and right keys to flip through the pages, and the cancel key to close the book.

Video Tutorial

Glitch

There is a glitch – more an oversight – in this video where the pages of the first book shows before the second book’s pages show.

The solution is here.

Next Tutorials

The schedule for the next few tutorials is continuing the Crafting System with either mining or fishing (probably the latter). And then another Tips & Tricks video. I’d like to try and alternate the Crafting System, where every other weekend is a different part of crafting, evolving it into a comprehensive system.

This is just a short post to show an experimental technique I’ve been working on, a Skyrim styled book-reading routine I recently put on Facebook.

The idea is to flip through the pages using the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to read the book’s contents, and then close the book with the CANCEL key.

There are two styles you can use:

  • Single Book – Read a single book and flip through its pages.
  • Multiple Books – Select the book you want to read and cycle through the pages of each.

The tutorial for this will be uploaded some time this month!
