Step 4: Make a "How to play" slide

1-Make a new slide


2-Then type this in the title section: (section 1 on image)

How to Play

3-Then type this in the subtitle section: (section 2 on image)


The object of the game is to get to the finish without touching the Walls
You can do so by not moving your mouse on to the walls
and by moving it on to the finish line.

Step 5: Level 1 preparations

This is the easiest part all you have to do is drag the subtitle section into the left upper corner and type:

"Click here to start"

Then drag the title section into the middle of the slide and type:


"LEVEL 1"

and make it big writing

To disable all the ways people can skip through slides you need to do several simple things: 1. Go to Tools>Options>View and uncheck "Show menu on right mouse click" 2. Go to Slide Show>Set Up Show and in the "Show type" category check the "Browsed at kiosk" option. This will disable several slide-skipping methods. 3. Go to Tools>Options>Security and put a password on your game. This password will be needed to open the Powerpoint Project thus preventing people from changing settings to cheat, changing the game, and stealing your work. People can still Play the game thanks to the next step. 4. Save and exit the game, then navigate to the file. It should be called whatever you saved it as and have the file extension .ppt. Right click and go to properties, and where it shows the full name change the file extension to .pps. Click ok if a box pops up about "Changing the file type". Now your file is a Powerpoint Show instead of a Powerpoint Project, meaning when someone opens it the game starts right away. You can still edit the game if you simply change it back to .ppt and enter your password when you open it. If there is anything else anyone can contribute please do, I still need to figure out how to restart a slide's custom animations each time you go to the slide (To allow someone multiple attempts at a level that has things move or change ie. The player clicks a button to extend a bridge). I hope this all helps, feel free to e-mail any questions you have to me at peter_c_cool@mac.com
