Interactive Fiction Engine
Something I've started working on yesterday. I call it the Interactive Fiction Engine, but actually it's a player as well. Using this engine (I'll just call it 'engine'), making interactive fiction is easy. The only thing you need is Notepad and some graphics tools.
You use notepad to write the INI files. INI FILES?! Yes.
Everything works from the INI files. Using the functions I've made in MMF, you can:
- Load background images
- Load character images
- Hide the character image
- Show the character image
- Start Music (IT/XM/S3M/MOD) (looped/unlooped)
- Stop Music
- Play a WAV sample
- Go to a different part of the INI
For more info on how to do this, check the example story and the text files included in the ZIP file.
Since there isn't an interface, I couldn't make any screenies of that. Instead I've made some screenies of the example story.
Suggestions are welcome!
