    Default

    I linked it into the all encompasing faq


    Q: I'm a designer and I have some design specific questions? Can you help me Mr.Developer
    ?
    A: Please...call me Indigo, or Indi or Sam (Real name...scary I know...) Anyways I think a designer would be better to help you, in fact, I know a man who has setup an FAQ, and is also a great help with design specific questions - http://forum.train2game.com/showthread.php?p=7216

    Whilst I would love to write a development specific one, there doesn't tend to be any FREQUENTLY asked questions.

    The questions that tend to be asked can require very long answers, and often theres more than one answer to it.

    Exclamation randomness.

    Just lately i have noticed alot of questions popping up... The FAQ's are too hard to find it seams?

    I will willingly answer any questions if you post them here, or i will get them added to IndigoWhite's FAQ if they are non Design related questions.

    I would like to give special thanks to Ambition for his addition to the FAQ!

    Q What are the main differences between adventure games and RPGs?'

    A

    Adventure Games consist of;
    Quests that conclude of non violent goals
    Alot less monster and side additions
    Puzzles, etc.
    More involvement to your surroundings.
    Usually based on pre-made character and history.

    RPG games consist of;
    Point system
    Class system
    Variety of quests (Violent/Non-violent.)
    Alot of various and even unecessary monsters.
    Grinding or stacking of quests
    Character customisation.

    Very nicely done!

    Matt B...

    This FAQ is for T2G students.

    I am also trying to include other people's additions to the FAQ, and i have not yet checked over everything 100% but i will deffonately get right on it to ensure accuracy.

    Also i would like to state that these are merely example answers to help people try and understand what they are doing and i openly tell people to do their own research.

    If you have anything you feel should be changed or removed please feel free to tell me, your imput is very much welcomed.
