Complete Noob Desperate for Help!

Post by eferhilda » Tue Jan 16, 2018 7:07 pm

I am learning to use livecode slowly while in my master's course. I was an English major and want to combine my love of gaming with my love of writing. So far, I was having a pretty good time of it, but now I am like stalling out hard and I need some help.

Is anyone familiar with the Rocket Joy Ride assignment/application that is given out to students learning to use Livecode?

If so, are there some specific resources or tutorial videos that anyone could link to me so that I can conquer it? I am behind in work and just barely scrapping by at this point so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

Thank you very much. I will look at those later tonight.

Do you know where I can get some help with the Collision code? And Object collision detection?

Hi,
where I can get some help with the Collision code? And Object collision detection?
have a look to "intersect" function in LC dictionary should be useful

Thank you so much!

Also, when I am adding in code does it matter where I put the code? Or does it not matter?

Hi eferhilda,

it REALLY DOES matter!

Please read this article to get some more detailed info about the "message hierarchy" in Livecode:
