    Latest tutorial using Game Bridge and Storyteller 2020.1.8

    This is the basic setup.
    The only code written in the tutorial is to trigger an animation

    Code (CSharp):
    1. public Animator animator;
    2.  
    3. public void SpinNow()
    4. {
    5. animator.SetBool("spin",true);
    6. }
    so only bare minimum coding ability is needed if you are triggering custom functions.:)

    So you only need to import one package.

    Storyteller 2020.2.2 now has FULL LOCALIZATION SUPPORT :) 

    That version will be released soon.

    Storyteller 2020.2.2 has been released.

    PLEASE SEE UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS

    When you launch your storyteller project for the firsttime with this new version you will see no text. Your text has however not been deleted.

    Right click in the canvas and go to Windows> Languages> Update System.

    If you have SceneData setup, push the data back to your SceneData and click the setup button on your character or dialoguer component in the inspector. that's all.


    To show you an example of Locaclization , the Dating Sim example project is now in Japanese and English.

    The new localization system supports text, voice and sound effect localization.

    Hello, I got interested in this asset as the engine for a visual novel. I have a question since this would be a requirement I got. Does it support importing the dialogues from a script file?

    The use case here is that a story writes will be able to write the script without having to use the Unity Editor, then I will import his script in the editor or even at runtime if it is supported.

    Thanks for clarifying this.

    Not yet. i will be adding a converter in a future release. It should only require some formatting so that Storyteller knows who is saying each line and if the line is Dialogue or denotes an action.


    Any import would happen outside of runtime.

    This is something i am looking forward to adding

    I have just completed addition of a functional text to node tool which just requires that you drag in your txt file and press two buttons.Of course you will have to structure your story so that the system knows what it is reading. You can choose how to.structure it.

    It generates the story with timed dialogue which can them be use in game, but i would suggest cleaning it up before just putting it in game.

    This new text to node function is recommend for imfrequent use by persons who already have an existing text based story and would like to turn it into a storyteller story.

    Storytellers features make the need of a text editor largely irrelevant.

    That said, A text editor is only largely irrelevant because there is a need for a place to dump large blocks of text. I am also working on a text ediror but we will see how for that goes.

    Also, The new localization system added last month works fine but broke something else. I just fixed it . So the Text to node BETA and the patch fix will be in the next update.

    When using the Text to Node tool.

    Just make sure to structure your story/ dialogue like this.

    { } start and end a dialogue
    [ ] character name

    {[Tom] Hello everyone how are you doing today.}
    {[Tom] I need to talk to you for a few minutes}
    {[May] Sure, no problem}
    {[Claire] hello people }
    {[Tom] So we are going to have a party}



    Choose the language that your story is in.
    click Create Character
    click Create Nodes.

    Done

    The warning are a non issue and the errors there seem to point to an example script saying that the int value LanguageIndex does not exist. open the SceneData.cs to see that LanguageInxed int is there.

    If you are using an old version of game bridge , you should delete it and import only the one that comes with storyteller.

    Oh and if you are moving from unity 2017 to Unity version of a different year. Do a storyteller import from the assetstore after you have moved to the new Unity version. This will ensure that you have Unity version specific Game Bridge codes and scenes. :)

    Hello, i wanted to check that inside the text I could add dynamic strings or int/floats example - the character name may be set by the player, or "i see you have [ int gold] gold in your safe.." or "i see your favorite color is [string color] ."

    and wow only $15 right now..

    The version for unity 2018 now requires textmesh pro also :) sadly version for unity 2017 was dropped because its text Ui system and text mesh pro were insufficient.
