Question insert texture maps as intructions? - 03-29-2008, 09:15 AM

i am making a game with alice and i would like to insert some instructions in the beginning and middle of the game. a good example of how i would like i to look is the instructions in the beginning of the flight simulator demo that comes with alice. i believe those instructions are an actual object, not just some texture map stuck in the middle of the world. does anyone know how to insert these?

The easiest way is to insert an image is as a billboard using the "Make Billboard" option from the file menu. The open file dialogue will tell you the types of files that can be accepted. Note that if you import .png files, alpha level transparency is supported - but you have to have made the image in a program that supports that.

A billboard behaves like any other object, and you can also try the billboard image as a skin for any other object. Just select the billboard's texture for the object's skin texture - the scaling may be off, however - badly in some cases.
