Starting my first adventure game with Visionaire!

    Hello Community,

    I am a long time web developer and I wish now to turn my attention to game design.

    I am starting now my first adventure project and I would like to know if there are any tips out there for begginers like me.

    I have used the VS for the last two days and I must say I am very surprised.

    I managed to bootstrap a starting scene with some characters, dialogs, object interaction and inventory.

    So far the only issues I have are the walking speed which seems to be faster on the vertical axis, than on the horizontal one.

    Also I find that regarding the documentation the resources are very scarce. Is there more info in the payed version? How can I take advantage of the LUA scripting in Visionaire? Is there some API or something?

    Thanks in advance and thank you for this amazing product.

    currently we have an old wiki:
    and a newer one:

    We are not ready with the newer one, much things are missing, i recommed to use both… currently :/

    Let's have a look at the licence page, to see what was the difference

    Lee can say better wat was missing on the new wiki smile

    the new wiki has pretty much all the VS player Lua commands with easy to follow syntax & examples & the start of a beginners guide to Lua - I will update that as & when I can...

    the new wiki has been getting a little neglected lately as I'm currently busy with other things but will resume working on it when I can.

    the old 2D wiki has a lot of information but some of it is a little out of date or is lacking (details) in certain areas. I hope to create a more in depth guide to Visionaire Studio on the new wiki by the time I'm done.

    You can also check out the VS community wiki here; especially the "sticky topics" article which contains a massive list of useful pages, links, resources, groups & scripts etc.
