@Hale-Bopp could you tell us a little about your text game?

It's a fantasy based choose-your-own-adventure/4th wall text game. It's got some original music that I wrote for it and a custom made font for all the text.

The story can go in all sorts of different directions as you're playing, but the main plot line that you follow to finish the game involves reaching an ancient tomb in search of some unknown artifact and you have to get there before an evil army reaches it first, because they believe it holds great power. Whomever wields the mysterious and great ancient power, rules the land.

Hey does anyone know how to "print" on the bottom, lower, touch screen?

Try this:

PNLSTR x,y,"string"

"PNLSTR" sets your string to display on the lower panel and "x,y" are your coordinates on the bottom screen followed by your string.

Thanks I will try this today if It works the opening cutscene to my game is done! If it was worke so far I will have a:
Sorta functional menu, only start game works
A forest cutscene using the 16 bit graphics
A conversation follewed by a still be ing coded battle system!btw Im still learning so when I have ever finish chapter 1, I will figure out how to post the qr codes

He has KO'd Blakizens
He has KO'd Mega Kangashkans
He has KO'd Rayquazas
He has KO'd Genesects
Hes even KO'd Shedinja...without a super effective move

Nice! I'm trying it out right now, this is fun. I like the different weapons that you get. I answered the monster's questions correctly and eventually fought a giant spider and made it all the way to the end. Good game so far!

It brings back the bitter memories of how it wasn't ME who created this thread!

Then again, I did get the first non-op comment in here!

Happened to me before. This is yours or the creators fault. Try rescanning.

Oops, I just realized you need another line. My bad.
Before that line, include the following:
PNLTYPE "OFF"
That will turn off the keyboard so you can print on the touch screen.

I'm guessing that's because that's the only code you're running. Try inserting something like WAIT 300 on the line after PNLSTR, then execute the program so you can see the results for a period of time before the program ends and the keyboard comes back on.

Hooray! It works thank you very much but one last thing how do I keep pnltype "off" and keep the text without it leaving? Btw this is for the conversation part of my game, the sprite s look like they are talking while their speech is shown on the lower screen!

GUYS! PLEASE! Im a new guy and i ask a few questions everyone ignores me! I tell them about my game and I cant release a demo yet everyone ignores me! YET, another guy completly new to petit computer and this website everyone answers his questions! I thought this was fun until everyone started treating me like such a NOOB! IM NOT A NOOB IM ACCUTALLY GOOD AT PROGRAMMING! Please, dont think im just whining over a person not giving an answer im talking about ALL the qeustions I asked and there back a few pages ago! LIsten I'm accutally good at programming and im planning the release of Soul, a first-person shooter, in a few weeks. thats all I wanted to say. :'(

I'm not on here alot. you seem kinda flustered. I get like that to when people don't answer my questions. It's important to remember though if your questions aren't formed properly or very well no one will pay attention to them (I don't think I was on when you asked).
I have a question for you now. :3 Are you making it for Petit computer? I don't think Petit computer is capable of running a first person shooter.
If not, then it's probably for PC.
You say you're a good programmer. That's good. You should be able to use the Petit computer function guide then right? Or you haven't found it yet?

Petit Computer is very different from regular pc programming (I'm just going to guess that's where your strength is) because it's built on the 3DS alot of things in Petit Computer still depend on the hardware state of the 3DS. Giving you pretty well limited access to higher level functions.
I guess, a common mis perception is you can do anything in any programming language. Most modern ones. yes. Petit Computer. I wouldn't say so it has it's own limitations for instance I think there's a sprite limitation. And it will only draw pixels to your 3DS so fast as well. :/ Geometry on Petit Computer seems pretty fast.

If you have any specific questions you can also pm me about them. I might not get back to you though.
