Events like 'Examine object' are very easy to create.  You can see in the Place = 0 script that the user can type
in 'examine light' and this will send them to Place = 0.1.  Place 0.1 is not a room, it just pulls up text giving
a description of the light and then will send them back to Place = 0.

Help Button (optional)

You can see I've added a help button to describe some of the commands you can use.  For this I just used a button
symbol and a movieclip symbol labelled 'help' with the help information.  In the Actions for the button you just add
this code -

on (rollOver) {
	_root.help._visible = true;
on (rollOut) {
	_root.help._visible = false;

That's it!

Well, you're now ready to create a massive text world of your own. Send me an e-mail if you need any help with
the script or if you've created a brilliant text game!  I have some script which allows variables to be saved 
so you can continue the game another day.  That'll be on the next tutorial...

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
