Hmmmm, the source for Dink goes Trick-Or-Treating, well, here's what I think the good and the bad parts about this source file are....


Well, you can now easily find out about how to implement timers into your D-MODS, you can set the thing to as long as you want, and can make it so that at a certain time, something happens. For example, the timer on Mystery Island, if it runs out and you havn't destroyed all of the cameras, two robots come to you and hack you to pieces. This is almost the same in the Trick-Or-Treating D-MOD, Dink must go trick-or-treating and get a certain amount of candy, before a time, otherwise he loses. I find this source to be very helpful in many ways, but also found some bad points about it. Here they are...


The fact that, this is the only good thing in the source, is what I would call a weakness. Everything else, should, and is (by my point of view) already known. I found the lack or difference that the source shows to Mystery Island is a bad point, as I hate mystery island, grrr. Need to get away from it... I also found there are not very many scripts here, which is very bad by my standards. However, other than that, what can I say? Have a look...


A good, small source showing you basically how to implement a timer into your D-MOD. However shows too much resemblence to Mystery Island

Total 7.2
Grade C (I think)

I always wondered how Redink1 made it possible that you could choose your costume and that Dink would actually change into that costume (or actually just change sprites!) and so the first thing I did was look up that script. And the way it was done is so easy I could have thought of it myself!
The other scripts are cool too, but some are (of course) from other D-mods, such as the timer which is from Mystery Island. There are less scripts then I thought, but it still is nice to have a look at them.

A nice source file to get started with as it only has 25 files. By far the best is the timer script which is based on the one used in Mystery Island. Good to look at if you want to do a similar thing. I also liked the house scripts to see how the different reactions to different costumes was handled.

No guide to what the files do, but with so little of them, there is no need.
