Your dissecting a screenshot which was scaled down from its original size just for posting, I think I scaled it down 75% with "preserve hard edges" setting so the text wouldn't blur.
People can see what the game-in-progress looks like in the video, running in a window at it's native resolution of 1280x720 on my desktop.
Did she have money trouble and want to kill one of her parents to get the heritage but forgot that her son sometimes sleeps in grandma's/grandpa's bed?
(Tabby's question just made me realise the ambiguity of "the bedroom he was sleeping in")
She planned to kill her husband while he was sleeping but didn't know that their son had had a nightmare or something and had crawled into bed with Daddy and she stabbed the son by accident?
I have a theory...
She hears two lovers, thinks her husband is cheating on her, goes in a fit of rage and kills him only to discover that it was actually her son.
I'll look into enums, thanks. But can I set them as global variables? Can I set it up in the global scrip and then read them in the room hotspot function?
No, they change. In the current state of the project, the amount ranges from 0 (almost every hotspot except two specific case) to at maximum 8, with an average of 4/5.
They change with each hotspot for a couple of reasons_
- since you can't talk to a fridge, for example, I think there's no sense in adding a "talk" option, so some interactions may not be available. This is what makes it hard to figure out what is in a specific spot. It is slightly confusing to have a series of Action_n properties, but since I code the interactions as I set up the hotspot and therefore the local values of each custom property, hopefully it's easy to remember which one is which.
- some of them indeed have custom names. Rather than a generic "use", it may be "turn on" for an electric appliance, "eat a snack" for the fridge, etc. In the case of the TV I put in the example post, it has two separate options for "whatch movie" and "whatch TV show", for example.
I didn't even know it was called Hungarian notations
I named variables this way because it seemed easier to remember for me what is what, especially for global variables that may be called all over the places. Why is it discouraged? What are the drawbacks?
