Yes it can, but it require a bit more to do. Text color is based on what COLOR is set to, so you would have to do something like this...

PRINT "I like ";
COLOR 13
PRINT "potatoes."
COLOR 0

It prints the first part, changes to Red (which is index 13), prints the next part in red, then sets back to white.

To do this on one line and using ? instead (which is the same as PRINT)...

?"I like";:COLOR 13:?"potatoes.":COLOR 0

@camedens I cannot answer all of your questions right now, but if you want to make maps, use BGPUT, BGFILL or make it easier with DATA. You can also create pre-mad maps using SCED (Or something like that)

It's awesome to see this thread still going strong after just over a year. I had taken a break from working on my text adventure because I was frustrated with coding music, but I'm back to working on it again anyways. Cleaned up some code and adding more story bits here and there. One of these days I might actually release it. :P

OverworlDS- Its a game like Terraria, but its my own sandbox game. Its 2d. It has randomly generated worlds and a few crafting recipes, but thats it.
Soul-A first person shooter. 1 level done.
Hunt-My best and most completed game yet. Your a medevil(sorry for spelling) hunter and theres different towns and i have 1 boss done. Im adding classes and stuff, and so far its on good progression!:D But i wont post a demo yet, because of it being low on features.
Ok thats it but I have a favor to ask someone- Can you post a link to Morphtroids(or Morphtorok, whatever his name is.) Petit pet craft? Thanks and this is my first post. Also what does watch topic do?
EDIT:Im programming on a dsi so I dont have a friend code.

Thanks, I usually find that my tastes are rather unique, so it's always nice to see others hanging around with similar interests.

You can't, not without processing the string yourself by examining each individual character in them to check for those keywords, which you would have to implement yourself, both the process and how to deal with keywords. The example you showed is something built-in to that programming environment and done automatically. That is something not built into PTC.

I would consider doing that, but that would be way to complex. Thanks for telling me! Saved me days of google searching.

I love choose your own adventure style games!

Thanks :)
I plan on putting it into seperate chapter releases, each with the next part for everyone.
The first release will have the prologue and chapter 1, with 3 endings if i remember correctly. Each ending will continue onto separate stories in chapter 2 when i keep it up. Ive never done this before and its a lot of work but fun. Been recently working on custom music and such, though i might take some samples from other sources... I really like the King of Thorn theme, i wanna make it.

Probably something people knew already, but I just found out that SWAP isn't just limited to individual variables, but can also be used for array elements. Not just that, but you can swap between an array element and a normal variable, like...

DIM AB(20)
AB(1)=30
BA=40
SWAP AB(1),BA
? AB(1);",";BA

prints "40,30"

btw how do you loop bgm? really wanna know how

edit: nvm think i figured out how, also found out you can store a number into a variable and change song based off of number in the variable

so bgmplay 1
song = 128
wait 60
bgmplay song

it definitely works, though you need a song for 128, if this helps anyone i'm glad to be of service

edit edit: also found out one way to loop my music in the background without having to manually recheck.
I just added a bgmchk to the loop that waits for you to push a to get to the next bit of text.
so now if i wanna change song out of nowhere, i can just do:
x = 1
bgmplay x
@pusha
if button = 0 then goto @next
wait 1
goto @pusha
@next
if button = 16 then goto @nexta
if bgmchk = 0 then bgmplay x
wait 1
etc

logically, i see no errors! this allows me to change songs at will with 2 lines of code, as well as repeat easily since i have no idea how to do it otherwise, all while being able to help those who might be curious :)

@KaiserD

From what I understand, the pre-set music already loops by itself. Some of the "jingles" don't though, but those weren't meant to be looped. If you're talking about self-made music looping, then take note that you can add looping within the music you make, using "[" where you want the loop to begin and "]" where you want the loop to end and repeat within the strings. The ending of the loop via "]" can be set with a number right after to determine how many times to loop, like "]2" means loop twice. Leaving it blank or setting it to 0 means loop forever. The number is also part of the list of items that can be changed using BGMSETV.

The DIM command in PTC is a LOT different than Visual Basic (my first programming language). In VB, it's used like this:
INPUT ABC
DIM ABC AS STRING
DIM in VB is used to define the type of input. So instead of ABC or ABC$ in PTC, in VB, you "DIM" as either a string, variable, or boolien (a true/false statement).

I kinda stopped programming in VB because it was too structured. I just couldn't do it. I find PTC to be a lot easier to learn and use. It would've taken me years to learn in VB what I've learned in a couple of weeks in PTC.

Just wondering, how hard would it be to replicate this song in PTC using the DATA command?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE8Dr43hZ-8
If its not too hard, would anyone be willing to do it? It would be AWESOME if you could do it. :D If it is virtually impossible, don't worry about it. I've provided a youtube link to this song being run by synthesia so you can see exactly what's going on. Thanks!
