i am a stupid beginner trying to make it through the SCI training chapters about all the aspects of SCI game design...you know, pics, texts, etc...but keep running into difficulties and this time i cannot seem to work myself into some sort of solution and i must bother you smarter and probably much more talented people about a trifle im sure...but i digress, here is my problem:
i downloaded the latest SCI studio with its tutorial guide and followed it to the part of scripts...it tells me to double-click on "Title Screen" to open up the script editor, but i only get the message that scripts cannot be edited...so i open up the editor manually and open the title screen script therefrom...i make the suggested changes, save, and try to compile, but to no benefit; also running the game yields no change either.
im sorry if the answer is in some faq or other place that i havent been able to find, but could anyone please help out a fool?
|You likely didn't extract the zip file with the directory structure intact. it needs a /template/src directory for the template's src.
|thanks for the help...that was the only thing left i thought i did incorrectly, and i am sure you are right. which leaves me thinking, if i cannot even unzip something right, how do i expect to do complete this endeavor? but i suppose i shall continue on in the assurance that this program was designed so well that even a dumbie like me can figure it out with enough effort.
In Winzip, select 'use folder names' to install Sci Studio.
