Multiple avatars

I'm working on a concept in which I would like the avatar to be different in some rooms. I might find a workaround, but it would still be nice (think: what if I want the character to be able to pick up a hat for example, and it changes their avatar.. this isn't my current use case, but a random one I just thought of).


love this idea! it is definitely something I plan to add :)

Well it requires a lot of work but you could do this by making the actual avatar unseen, and make your player character from sprites or tiles. It requires you to make a lot of rooms if you wanted to move a character around like you would a regular avatar. Since you would have to make a new room for every possible direction the character could move. This is currently the only way to change an avatars appearance that I can think of.


I hope you realize just how terrible an idea that is..

True. For your case it would be a lot of work. However I've seen as well as used this method for first person dungeon crawler/ choose your own adventure style games. Among other things.

I would like to ask for this feature too... I'd like to have the avatar walk to a car item and jump to a new room where the avatar is the car and it is moving around a map.

AFAIK, this isn't even a feature in the Borksy hack? 

Did find a separate hack though that can do this:

I wasn't sure what you were saying until now. I have been trying to use the hack and it has some weird bug that makes it basically unusable? Some rooms will randomly get all twitchy/blinky and the game lags and sometimes skips text.
