Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Data storage for mystery/stealth game

I am trying to create a randomly generated mystery game that requires the player to solves crimes in the selected map.

I want the player to discover facts and evidence about the NPC in the level. I could just reference the NPC add Booleans to tell the player if he discovered the specific fact or not, but I know that is not the correct way and if I decide to make competitive multiplayer this will not work.

Where and how can I store this information?

Store the data on the player character(non replicated of course) as an array of booleans if you want(then its a unique array per character, even in a live multiplayer session). Each index in the array will be a question and the result is whether they have the fact/evidence

When you save your state, say in a competitive environment, output to your master server using SQL or something similar.
