In this video,
you'll create a title page
for your two truths and a lie project.
First, create the title page.
Click on the stage,
click on backdrops,
then choose paint new backdrop.
Tinker with the tools available to create a fun title page
that makes your friend want to play the game.
This example uses the paint bucket
to fill the entire stage with one color.
Then uses the text tool
to write the name of the game and give instructions.
You can also paint with the paintbrush
and draw lines, circles and rectangles.
Name your new backdrop "title page".
Next, make the backdrop you just created
the first one your friend sees.
To make the backdrop switch,
from the looks menu drag out the switch backdrop to block.
From the dropdown menu select title page.
The title page will show for a little while
then change to the two truths and a lie backdrop.
To program that timing,
from the control menu place a wait block
under the switch backdrop to block.
From the looks menu,
place another switch backdrop to block under the wait block.
Tinker with the value in the wait block
until the title page is on as long as you want it to be.
Click on the code to test it.
The title page shows first
then the two truths and a lie backdrop, great.
Next, tell the program when to show the title page.
From the events menu, place a when flagged clicked block
on top of the code stack.
Click the flag.
The title screen shows,
but the sprite also starts talking.
Make the sprite hide and wait to show up
until after the title screen shows.
Click on the sprite.
From the looks menu, place a hide block
under the when flagged clicked block.
From the control menu,
place a wait block under the hide block.
Make the wait time the same
as the wait time between backdrops.
This example waits four seconds.
From the looks menu,
place a show block under the wait block.
Test the code.
When the flag is clicked the sprite hides,
waits four seconds, shows, then starts talking.
That's a fun way to introduce this game for your friend.
Now it's your turn.
Create a title screen backdrop.
Make the program switch to this backdrop
then to the two truths and a lie backdrop
using switch backdrop to, when flag clicked and wait blocks.
Finally, make the sprite hide
when the flag is clicked,
wait while the title screen shows, then show.
