Creating Powerpoint Games
« on: September 15, 2010, 02:51:12 PM »
So I've been trying to make a ppt. trivia game and I figured out hyperlinking but I'm still lost on one thing. On the category board, I want to click a word, go to the question, and then when I return to the category board, I want the word I clicked to be either gone or a different color to show that I've clicked it. How can I do this?

Thanks.

Have a look at the PPTs and look into the details of the custom animations...
http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,1816.0.html

But, the word needs to have an 'exit animation'.  You then need to set a 'trigger' for this animation.  Double click on the animation within the list of animations and the option is in the pop-up box.  Make the trigger the same item.  So, when it is clicked - first you go to the hyperlinked page, and return - then the exit effect is triggered.

Wow, this was exactly my question! And the tip works. Thank you!

For others who are working with Powerpoint in Korean at school, it will look like this:

After making the hyperlink and making some kind of exit effect (red star), double click on the animation.

Click on the 타이밍 tab.
There is a button that says 시작 옵션(T), and two more things you can choose from will appear if you click on it.
The second one is 다음을 클릭 하면 효과 시작(C), and that has the little drop-down menu from which you select the item you are currently working on.
Then hit 확인 and you're set!

PowerPoint 2007:

To have text changing color, you simply need to make the text a hyperlink.  If you are not happy with the hyperlink color scheme you can:

1. click the colors tab
2. go over to the colors drop down
3. select a color scheme you are fond off, or select create new. "hyperlink" is the starting color, and "followed hyperlink" is the color it will change to on click

To have something dissapear or to trigger something on mouse release:

1. Click the animations tab
2. click custom animations, a new menu panel will appear in the right hand side
3. select the image you want to create an effect for by clicking on it
4. add an exit effect
5. in the animations panel you will see you new exit effect, right click that and choose timing
6. expand the triggers option, select "start effect on click of
7. select the name of the graphic or button on the list that you want to trigger the exit effect on the release of the mouse (everything you add in powerpoint gets given a name.  Usually text is called whatever you type, a series of circles will be named circle 1 circle 2 etc.

Other ways to create these effects are through visual basic, but really isn't needed unless you are working something that needs to be applied to many instances.

Detailed explanation with images showing the appropriate options on Korean-language Powerpoint. Instructions use the right hand menu as a basis as I seem to recall that's unchanged between Powerpoint 2003 and 2007.

How do you make the object you click on disappear? 

I'm able to set animations for sequential clicks anywhere on the screen, and timed animations, and multiple animations set to the same trigger, but how do you set it so the object you click on disappears (the little finger cursor)?

each text field, or picture is given a name, add an exit effect to what you want to dissapear, go to the timing options of the exit effect, triggers, and select the name of the object to trigger.

Ie, if you want "square 1" to dissapear, add the exit effect, add a trigger for the onClick fucntion  to "square 1" from the list of objects on the sheet

Just to help anyone using a mac keep from getting too frustrated I found that triggers are not available in the mac os version of powerpoint. Between that and using different Korean versions of PP for windows at work things are a bit confusing. If you want an image to disappear like in a lot of the bomb games when you return to the selection slide I haven't been able to get it to work from scratch.

But...

If you copy an object with that behaviour from another PP presentation then right click you can replace the image with another one. and just continue to make copies within the presentation from there.

Thanks everyone. This post helped a lot.

I'm still having issues with trying to add music to the screen where students chose a question. The music plays the first time, but after the first question, the music no longer plays. Any suggestions?
