For those of us who can draw... or have a big budget, but not nearly enough for a full animated movie, I have created a script which will add a comic book scene to your game. If you have ever played Folklore, you get the idea what kind of scene this can create for you (although it won't look anywhere near as fancy). This script is great for creating cut scenes in which you want to show action that simply can't be done with sprites and animations. You're on your own to get the comic pages, though.
Yes I know this can be done with events--but I wrote this script because...
1. It was an experiment to see if I could do it.
2. I was motivated to do it.
3. I like to program.
4. This makes adding comic book cutscenes to your game very very easy so you can do it without being an event command master.
5. The process for adding comic scenes is more streamlined with a script.
Uhh, in case it wasn't obvious, this script only has one feature--add a comic book cutscene to your game
[Show/Hide] AlphaWhelp's Comic Book Scene
The only thing you will be able to change about this script is the sound effect that plays when flipping a page. There are many sound effect websites you can look up to find a page flip sound effect. It's a common enough sound effect that you can probably find one that is public domain, but if you get one with a credit for the one who recorded it, you must remember to credit that person in addition to me when using this script.
Barring bizarre circumstances that I can't even imagine, this script should be compatible with every other script you have in your game.
Can't really show you the script with screenshots.
To install this script into an existing game, you will need these files...
Import PageFlip into Audio/SE and import the PNG files into Graphics/Pictures
the PNG files are provided for you to test the comic book scene--they are not an actual comic, just testing files.
Q: How do I install this script?
A: Copy and paste it below Materials and above Main, but it doesn't matter where in between it goes. Do not forget to download the accompanying files or else your game will crash when it tries to access them.
Q: There's a completely blank black page in my comic?
A: You left a blank line in a place where the instructions specifically said don't leave a blank line. Please reread and follow the instructions provided in the script in its comments.
All credits to AlphaWhelp, please and thank you.
