Hi everyone! This is my first post here but definitely not new to forums by any means.
I purchased Clickteam Fusion 2.5 on Christmas and I've been playing around with it. I decided I wanted to make my first game Who Wants To Be A Millionaire but I need a little advise on where to go from here.
So, I am aware that there are some quiz type plugins included with Fusion, but I'm not necessarily happy with the way they work for this particular application.
I was thinking the way to go may be an INI file? Is it possible to use an INI file to create questions that can be randomized so that you don't have the same experience each time you play the game? I'm not planning on 100s of questions but at least so you can enjoy the game for a bit instead of it just being the same content over and over again.
Another reason I figured an INI might be used here is for the lifelines. I haven't decided all of them that I want to include but 50:50, Phone a Friend, and Ask the Audience is definitely tried and true to the original game. So for the questions, I'd also want defined lifeline "answers" as well so like the 50:50 would pull the right and wrong answer and remove two other wrong answers, ATA can have the percentages for each answer, etc. Also, I want to make sure when I used my lifelines, that once you use it, it's gone for the rest of the game. I'm assuming that would most likely be a global event.
I also decided to change the graphics later on. I was using the original (US) version but I decided to switch over and use the clocked US version graphics, despite me leaving out the timed segment, at least for now. I have that pretty much down pat except for the occasional glint that goes across the question/answers. Here's an example of what I'm talking about: https://youtu.be/wHl-sN2Npvw?t=29s
About every six seconds, the magenta/turquoise glint goes across the question, what module would be best suited for that? I already have the layers so that it will pass through but not show up where it doesn't belong. Which would be the best module to use, active object or an active picture? I need it animated to go from left to right just like it is shown in the video.
I think that's all I need for right now. Here's the progress so far despite still using the old graphics and just plain old text modules and defined answers in the event editor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU1WtPw6LgI
