help with conversations

Postby Pongo » Thu Nov 12, 2015 7:54 pm

I'm writing a conversation at the minute with multiple branches. It is in the form of a guy saying, "any questions?" and then five options for the player to pick from.

I'd like to loop the conversation back to the beginning after every question has been answered, rather than spend ages copying and pasting the various branches. The last option is "no further questions", which kills the conversation.

Can this this kind of conversation looping be done? If so, can someone point me to an example in one of the existing modules please?

Yes, I do this in Lanterna and Lanterna 2 with conversations with companions and Melia in Lanterna. ..I think Tindra too. I think I included Lanterna in the last post to The Vault for IB2 v10

Yup, just select the node you want to jump to (link) and select copy node. Then select the node you want to paste the link to and then choose to "paste as link". The added link node should show up as grey.

Great screenshot, looks like plenty of intrigue afoot.

The IceBlink conversation editor is pretty powerful, and fun to use. Look forward to more updates about your project.
