hi, now that mpagd may get commodore support, id like to get into it more fully. For game idea, each level will have some text on bottom of the screen that stays there the whole time. is there a link to how to do this/best method? kinda like a visual novel but with some action on top too.
DEFINEMESSAGES "This is the text for Screen 0" "This is the text for Screen 1" "This is the text for Screen 2" "This is the text for Screen 3"
...and so on, so that each line corresponds to the screen number that you want the text for.
Then in the Events menu, select Restart Screen all you need to do now is include:
AT 21 0 ;or wherever you want the text to be displayed MESSAGE SCREEN ;SCREEN is a standard MPAGD variable that stores the number of the current screen, since you have aligned your text messages with your screen numbers you can use it to display the correct screen text
First thing to check is that you hit the enter key after every line when writing scripts in Notepad. That error ( label not found: evnt15) would indicate that you do not hit enter at the bottom of evnt14.....and evnt14 is the Restart Screen event.
This has caught me out a bunch of times when learning MPAGD, often I'll get a MISSING ENDIF error, but when I check the event the ENDIF is there....I just hadnt hit ENTER after it. Now it's the first thing I check
The semicolon just tells the AGD compiler to ignore everything on the line after it, you use it for commenting
