Read the online documentation at Mass Moca's site for their 2001-2002 exhibition, Game Show. Please read the article handouts as well.
1-On paper, create a list of four questions for a potential visitor to your game site. On paper, create lists of possibilities for the text you might receive.
2-On paper, sketch out a flow chart for a Director movie that will create a personalized "greeting" for the visitor (See above example for ideas).
3-Create a Director movie that follows the plan that you outlined on paper. Try to use at least one nested if-then statement to create a sprite property change on stage. In my example, users are asked if they like apples or oranges better, which results in a sprite graphic change onstage.
4-Mount your homework online. Email me the url you'll be using for class work. See FTP help for assistance.
