Anyone what to help tidy my puzzle up?


#1

I’ve spent loads of time trying to make the rotation and positioning on my tiles more smooth but it’s just impossible :smile:

Anyone want to give it ago trying to make it look neater?

I’ve timed all the rotations in 0 and tried to align them but it’s quite fiddley and the rotation is still funny. Here is a clip of what it looks like.

The idea of the game is to connect all the wires to the right colour
eg. Red to red yellow to yellow blue to blue etc.

(there is no win yet I haven’t added the in but once the puzzle is completed successfully you can carry on to the next part of the game.
.
Here is the code and I’ll post the overlays in reply

#2

T1 TA
T2 TB
M1 MA (not sure why this has come up enlarged
)
M2 MB
B1 BA
B2 BB

INT.EBOXE

This is the background

The overlays were named like this because I needed to create characters for the point system, but characters names must start with 2 letters so the first letter represents the line it is on (top, middle, bottom.) and the second letter is just a reminder on which side they go. (A comes before B)

TA= Top A
TB= Top B
MA= Middle A
MB= Middle B
BA= Bottom A
BB= Bottom B

My background (INT.EBOXE) stands for Electric box Error.

good luck :joy::rofl::smile:

You made this as a mini game in your story? Let me just say, that’s AWESOME and kudos to you for making something so awesome!!

I would suggest playing around with opacity when moving the overlays. Maybe move them at opacity 0 and then when they are in the right spot, make the opacity 1. That way you don’t see as much “boxy” movement on the screen as I notice in your video clip.

Seriously, awesome job!! Can’t wait to see the finished product :smiley:


#4

Awwww thank you so much :slight_smile: turns out my tiles are the wrong size so I’ve re done them.
I don’t suppose you would like to test it out for me once it’s done?
I need to ensure that there is only 1 possible sequence to complete the puzzle…

Edit: I’m still fiddling around with them so it’s not quite complete yet


#5

I would love to!! Send me the link and I’ll take a look :smiley:


#6

thank you that would be a great help :slight_smile: I’m still connecting the tiles to the board at the moment and ensuing it will allow the user to get the correct answer.
I’m hoping this wont take long :slight_smile:


#8

Ok I’ve somewhat fixed it. (it still needs work to make it line up correctly but it’s ok for trying out)

As I’m in the middle of creating the rest of Escape (title) some of the narration might not make sense.
To get to the puzzle press the down arrow on the first screen you come to. it will take you to a door.
tap the door and it should say "It’s locked and then take you straight to the puzzle.
let me know if you have and problems

As I say there should only be one solution to the puzzle so if you complete it and it tells you that you are incorrect then there is either a glitch or 2 solutions

https://www.episodeinteractive.com/write/story/new_1_9/2

it’s currently in a loop for trial so even when you win it will reset it’s self.

hope this makes sense ha ha ha


#9

Just passing through and wish I had your talent! Looks amazing :slight_smile:


#10

almost forgot to explain the rule as I haven’t done that yet.

you need to connect the wires to the correct colour e.g
a blue to blue
red to red
green to green


#11

thank you it means a lot I’m actually a beginner and these are basically experiments :slight_smile:


#12

well damn. I’m actually jealous lol.

Would love to read this when it comes out :slight_smile:


#13

thank you :slight_smile: I know I’ve asked someone but I need to ensure there is only 1 solution to this puzzle. I don’t suppose you mind taking a look as well?
I’ve tested it a lot and I can only find one solution but others might spot something I haven’t.


#14

Sure! Looks super fun :slight_smile:


#15

Thanks,
I have posted the link above but not sure if my explanation makes any sense…
just in case you will be put through to a bedroom, click the down arrow and then click then door
it will take you straight to the puzzle.

It still needs work doing to it to line them up and make the rotation smoother but I would prefer to make sure it works first.
some of the narration might not make sense but that because I haven’t linked the puzzle up to a different area yet…


#16

Ok! Sounds good. I’ll check it out now :slight_smile:


#17

thank you


#18

Just clicked the link and it said My access has been revoked? Not sure why that’s happening.


#19

just realised what I’ve done I’ve shared the link not the story :joy: http://episodeinteractive.com/s/6629690255343616

pease ignore spelling mistakes I’m working on them :wink:


#20

ok!

I’m not sure how quick I’ll be at it though :laughing:


#21

no rush :wink:
