no problem! are u in the bitsy discord? we usually help answer questions there and organize collaborations and stuff :) we’re all working on making a proper guide and wiki for bitsy but its been very slow >.<;; https://discordapp.com/invite/9rAjhtr here a link if u arent in the bitsy discord and u’d like to join!
thank you!! i basically just used the edit image from dialog hack and the permanent items hacks, so the cats are basically blank items that change their image when u talk to a lantern (and then its just some variables to make sure that the cats appear in the order i've chosen) so yeah you grab the matches, the variable on the matches gives you the diff lantern dialogue with the hack info that changes the lantern's image + colour and also makes a cat appear :P
you can use sprites of course but for this illusion i needed items so that you can walk on them so it truly appears like the cats just appear where there was nothing. there's probably some way to make them actually be like a 'wall' through js or something but i dont know how to do that and just experiment with the hacks that already exist (i'm sure sean might make a hack that toggles the 'wall' property of a item one of these days)- just be sure that if you want to make like 5 items appear one by one, each of those items are a different one else the hack modified the specific item so if u have more than one instance of it in your game, it'll change it everywhere (sprites can be put more than once so thats not an issue)
i hope this is a decent explanation! i spend a lot of time figuring this out for my other game robits and had a lot of trial and error for some things that seem rly simple >.<;;
sorry if you already knew abt borksy >.<;; i just use it a lot because its a huge time saver... ah i remember the days i had to manually insert all the hacks into the downloaded html file just to test it.... that was so long ago.... back in... march of this year xD
ah sorry! im ace myself and i saw so much discourse during the time i was on tumblr and sometimes it still pops up on twitter.. and i just... i hate it..... i have a lot of feelings about it that i wont be getting into but i'm sorry it felt hurtful! i in no way want to attack individual ace ppl many of who seem very nice! and i apologize if this apology seems insincere in anyway but i myself have very strong feelings abt... the bad part of the community. my feelings with being ace are well complicated and any negativity that got into this game abt it stems from that :\
now maybe for something kinda positive: while i think i never outright say it in the game- the protagonist of a day in the life of a sea witch is actually ace (and also aro and agender!) i realize that might be seen as a cop out since the game never states it but its bc um complex personal feelings abt it on my side >.<;;
i really am sorry it came across as hurtful, i never intended that and i might have been in a bit of a mood when i was making the game too but yeah i got a lot of indirect hurt left over thats only now cooling down :|
THIS TURNED OUT SO GREAT!!!! I HAD SO MUCH FUN PLAYING!!!! im glad i powered through and made a floor :3 it was real good fun! i totally need to do a run where i dont die... i feel like i died so much xD the puzzles are all so clever!!!! almost sad i didnt actually think of anything but hey with a wonderful thank you to em i got to put pear in!!! and then another big thanks to ayo who let me have two sprites up at the party <3 i hoped that'd be compensation for having my floor be a under construction mess xD I LOVE THE LAST LITTLE PUZZLE ON THE PARTY FLOOR!!! THAT WAS REAL GOOD!!!
a small thing for all the wonderful onion detective fans.... if u get through the whole game without dying (at least after talking to P and O).... there is diff party dialogue ;^) i mean would i even be me if i didnt do something dumb thing like that with variables??? lol
