And after reading up on the order of operations, I now see I simply remembered it wrong, while Slasher is dead on. Oh well, it's a good thing I don't do that for a living. :-[

I know the order of operations but I don't get how to do math with symbols that are not defined. 2 out of the 3 symbols on the bottom line don't appear in the definitions on the top 3 lines

Ok, then it must be based on a reference I'm not familiar with, which would explain why I'm stuck.

What Youtube video am I missing...?

 :-D Slasher's actually hidden a huge hint about the logic in one of his replies above. Although it looked like we were discussing other things.  (laugh) You don't need to have seen a similar setup or video to be able to solve this.

I created my player character and got animations for her. But I still need to figure out quite a bit more. But we're still not quite to the halfway point of the month.

It's late in the month but I think I came up with a fun one-room idea that I might be able to cobble together by the deadline... It's been a little while since I fired up the AGS software so let's hope I haven't lost the knack!

Good luck, JackPutter.

I'm still trying to decide on art style for my game. Hopefully I'll figure it out today or tomorrow so I can start "real" work...

What, no encouragement for me? No keep up the mediocre work? lol.
Does reading a book for inspiration count as "work"? If so, I'm about to "work" on my game...

Don't demean yourself...if reading is what it takes then yes, it is work... it's all work...

The earlier you start the sooner you'll finish...

One spark of inspiration is all you may need to light up the world..

Go forth and conquer ;)

It's not really demeaning myself when it's true. What work I've done so far has been half hearted at best. But reading did actually prove useful since my mind relaxed enough to give me a specific puzzle idea.

And I now have more or less the art style I want figured out. Today and tomorrow are breaks from as high of heat, so I should be able to get a decent start.

Work is really piling up for me at the moment and has been this last couple of weeks so I don't think I'm going to manage anything at all this month. :(

I have one background and a character sprite. It may be a last-minute dash to the finish line for me, I was hoping to have a lot more finished by now.
