SMILE GAME BUILDER Tutorials Extra #X04: Ignaz’s Gold
The new Smile Game Builder Tutorials Extra #X04 video is online at YouTube.
This one focuses on Ignaz’s money (from Tutorial #6), this time a randomised amount before he will join the party.
Phone Custom Menu for SMILE GAME BUILDER
One of the side-projects I’ve been working on is a "useable phone", where you can call a phone interface and select its apps to toggle certain settings ON or OFF (such as Party Train) and call certain functions (such as the Save Menu) from within SMILE GAME BUILDER.
Development HistoryWhile development initially began more as an experiment for a unique icon-driven custom menu, I quickly realised how much it resembled a cellphone layout, with all its apps neatly laid out on-screen.
So I began redesigning the layout and interface to look more like a typical cellphone. And I began planning which features could be used as apps.
Although it’s still a work-in-progress, I will continue work on it over time. There are plenty of bugs and some of the routines don’t quite function as intended, so I still have a long way to go before a fully functioning phone custom menu.
Some app functions, such as the Equipment and Jukebox, may not be viable or achievable, so they might need removing or replacing.
Custom Menu Online Classes/Tutorials
At the end of July to the beginning of August, I’m going to start work on a series of courses or online classes dedicated to creating custom menus for SMILE GAME BUILDER, which will be available on the Gnome Treasure store.
During the course, you’ll learn how to create unique custom menus from start to finish, from a simple "settings menu" to something more complex like the phone custom menu.
I’m not sure of pricing or format yet, but that’ll develop over time, and I’ll make the announcements here and on Twitter.
