Feature request: New event for getting player input.
« on: July 08, 2016, 03:59:56 PM »
I would like an event that has:
1) add image (like the Text Statement event for example)
2) Message box (like the Text Statement for example)
3) prompts the player to enter something, which is described to the player in #2 (like the Password event)
4) stores the input from #3 in a Global ASL named by the designer

Have you considered the interactive text event?
"***Shazam***"

Yes I have. I am currently using that option, but, you want to talk about long scripts. :D
For the interactive part of it, I may not know enough about SHAZAM, as I can rarely get what I want - I can do the scripting for asking questions and illiciting and storing responses, but I have a hard time with the graphics in the event that is calling SHAZAM, and I also end up with about 10% of my events never working, even when I am literally copying and pasting one event into another cell.

When next I come across one of these events that doesn't work, I will post it here for assistance. Unntil then, just (correctly) assume that I am partially incompetent.

Well!  There is the problem.  We never suggested that you should illicit.
I hope you can mend your ways, perhaps with help and guidance of
a professional.

Well, it may be the wrong word, but at least I spelled it correctly. :D

Before I stop with the illicit, I will have to see the error of my ways. lol
