Hello everyone, i have a new question.

A button can command multiple events in a time sequence, can i merge or group this sequence so that it can then be interrupted or paused by another button?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Julian

No, but there are lots of possibilities for animations and if you can give us more detail on exactly what you want to accomplish, including screenshots or drawings it might help us to help you.

 

That said, you should be aware that the use of animations is limited to fixed layout epub (and highly dependent on the reader app), publish online and in5 (additional subscription) export.

Yes, I'm aware of it, but it's enough for me to create the online and in5 publication that I already have.

That said, I'm a bit crazy because I'm trying to make a game of my own invention without having any programming knowledge.

I'm a graphic designer and I've always worked with Adobe programs... but I'm finding many obstacles... maybe I'll start studying programming languages to be able to work in the right way.

The game is really interesting and the graphics have an excellent impact... with the backend and the frontend, however, there is a lot of work to do.

For now I train with InDesign.

Honestly, I think you're wasting your time trying this with InDesign. You're basically working with tools that are almost 15 years old and never intended for this kind of advanced use.

 

You need an app.

For non-programmers a number of visual game development options exist:

...and quite a few others, including Unreal with Blueprints.

It depends a bit on the type of game that you are interested in developing.

 

In any case InDesign's interactive tools are NOT suitable for game development, but can be used to create a visual prototype with some interactions.

Some mad genius reportedly ported Doom to Notepad recently. I suppose you can do anything with anything if you know everything and expect nothing. 🙂
