The error means that your playable character's has "Starting room" set to -1. Are you sure you are looking at the correct property?

I have no idea. I can't see a -1 anywhere in any of the properties. :confused:

I'm not sure which tutorial you're following, but I suggest you try this one: https://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=21DB402CB4DAEAEF

It's a bit outdated, but most of the stuff hasn't changed, so you at least can get the basis out of the way. ;)

Thanks for this. This has cleared up the confusion. :D

Fair enough. I'll just have to experiment and see what works best.

Currently having problems applying my dummy sprite. I've got it uploaded as a PNG, but I'm not sure how to use it so it appears in my scene. I feel as though the tutorial doesn't explain or explain it clearly. :-/

Also, for some reason now, whenever I try and run the game, I get a compiler error saying: 'The game is set to start in room -1 which does not exist', but in the properties panel it says it's 1.

I managed to import a pixel image I made in Photoshop no problem. :) Animations I haven't looked into yet. That will be a whole new learning challenge.

I'm thinking of having my pixel art 1920x1080. What would be a good resolution for my characters/sprites?

Okay, I’ll try to remember that in future. :) I take it those axis values will need changing to where my key is?

One other thing: I found out to my disappoint that AGS doesn’t support vector graphics for characters/sprites, so I’ll have to change my assets to be more retro/pixelated. I’ll be doing this in Photoshop. How do I import them over? The import option asks for the files to be in .CHA, I think it was...?

Okay, thanks for the help. :)

I have a problem now. I've done a search in the forums, but I'm still clueless. Plus, I'm still very new to coding/scripting, but I can't work out how to get my placeholder character to walk to the key first before picking it up.

I guess I just want to experiment with the Monkey Island verbs, but without starting over whilst following the tutorial.

Hi everyone

Just signed up and have recently started using AGS in order to make my very first video game/adventure game. This is for a college project I'm doing in game development. I'm currently working through the tutorial, but I would like to change my BASS template to something else, but I'm not sure how or if you can. Is this possible at all?

Thanks
