Asker

Create questions or statements with up to four player responses that can send messages.

​​

  • Ask a question or make a statement

  • Allow players to choose one of four responses, each sending a unique message that can trigger other logic

PERFORMANCE TIP In multiplayer Experiences, there are two layers of logic that will not communicate with each other: singleplayer [SP] and multiplayer [MP]. For best performance, only apply [MP] behaviours and components to objects that MUST be synchronised to all players (or communicate on that layer), and maximise use of the [SP] (Client Only) layer.

USAGE TIP Allow players to trigger branching game logic through their dialogue-driven choices.

When triggered, the dialogue box for Asker Behaviour appears on the center of the screen no matter where the player is located in an Experience.

Common Uses

  • Dialogue strings for short conversations, quizzes, etc.

  • Dialogue states for quests

  • Tips for players using rich text formatting to highlight keywords or hints

  • Player choice and branching logic

Communications

Output: One Message based on the player's selected response (optional delay), with four potential options
