[AOG] Making an Intro to your Game [Player start]

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I thought I would share this with the community as it is useful for setting up your new player character with variables and making a nice intro cut scene. I will be using my intro for my game as an example, but this itself was just a simple example I added for testing.

 

So lets Begin:

 

In the editor go to: Game Editor > Common Event Editor

 

Create a new event and call it "New Character" and open it up. My "New Character Event" looks like this:

Here is the picture command:

[Make sure to set it to FULL SCREEN, so it will auto adjust depending on what the player has his clients screen resolution set at. This is why we create a picture at the max game client resolution 1920x1080 so it can scale down.]

What we want to achieve is so when a new player joins the game with a new character the following will happen:

 

First Section Intro:

  1. Start Playing Intro Music
  2. Show Picture
  3. Wait 3000ms [time to read]
  4. Hide Picture
  5. REPEAT FOR HOW MANY INTRO PICTURES YOU HAVE

 

Second Section Variables:

  1. Set player variables for the core game
  2. [See screenshot below for mine, which sets a player realm var to 1 as I have a realm system that requires this to be set]

 

Third Section Start Players Journey [Quests]:

  1. Start a chat off with the player
  2. Give advice of help on how to play the game
  3. Start off the main story line quest or a tutorial quest

 

What we need for this event:

  • A set of pictures [.png] with you intro on which could be a written story, or some images showing you a story. Size: 1920x1080 [I am using just a black image with some writing on but soon I will be adding artwork]
  • BGM file, for your intro music

 

Ok now lets look at the condition for all this to start. Its simply just using "Can the player start Quests C1 - Speak to the Guide". As we know a new character hasn't started any quests yet:

 

This is the simple quest made to make the above condition:

Here is the Event Condition for New Character:

So when a player starts the game and creates a new character and joins the following will happen:

BGM Music Starts

 

Cut Scene from the Pictures we get it to run in the event.

Have a couple of cut scene images and break down you story. Just showing first and last, think I have 7 pictures explaining the story before the player gets into the game.

 

Have a wait time between each one, so new player has time to red it.

Eng BGM Music.

 

End Cut scenes and start the game.

 

Conversation starts right after the cut scenes to continue engagement:

Shoe new players some basic tutorials [movement and interaction]:

As well the quest has been assigned to you:

I hope this helps people get new players / characters engaged into your games :)

Sorry I don't know what you mean, can you explain a bit more?

 

The realm bit is something I have in my game, its a way of defining different areas of my game. This bit is not needed for you if you don't have a realm system like mine, but it shows you when to set player variables if you have or need to set any on creation of a new character.

And what should I jump to do normally? I don't know how to do that alignment, realm and player respawn ..

 

Just don't add the "Set Player Variables", skip them.

No problem :)

Always when I log in with the same character, the same animation and story happens and it invokes me to the same place all the time, how can I do that I only pass alone once to log in and then no longer appear?

Sorry you will have to have a player variable or switch to be set to 1 in event process and have the events trigger condition be is that variable set to 0 then run event if not don’t run.
