Need a script for Main Menu buttons

Recommended Posts

So, as I've created some games already in Unity, I will describe simple example of how I'd do it in Unity these days (and most likely will do it next time I'll use Unity for something):

Here is a simple example I put together in few minutes: https://otte.cz/random/MainMenu.rar

Short description: What you need is some GameObject in scene which will have script containing public functions that are handlers for buttons. The class holding these must derive from MonoBehaviour, like the one in the archive:

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.SceneManagement;

public class MainMenuController : MonoBehaviour
{
    // Function called for button, must have 0 or 1 string argument at most, must be public
    public void NewGameHandler()
    {
        // Load another scene with "Game" name, scenes must be added in Build Settings!
        SceneManager.LoadScene("Game");
    }

    // Function called for button, must have 0 or 1 string argument at most, must be public
    public void QuitHandler()
    {
        // Exit the application
        Application.Quit();
    }
}

Now on the buttons, add a On Click record, where you attach (drag & drop, or just click + select) this game object with above-like MonoBehaviour attached. Next, select (from event drop down) the MonoBehaviour class name and under it there will be a function (NewGameHandler, QuitHandler)... note that the drop down has 2 levels, it is easy to miss it.

It is setup in the project in the archive, so feel free to use anything from it.

      Hello!
      I am a game development student in my second year of a three year program and I would like to start building my portfolio. I was thinking of creating some games to show what I can do to potential employers since I wont have any work related experience when I graduate. But as I'm sure you all know there are tons of ways to approach developing/designing a game and I'm curious if anyone had any insight as to any "standards" that come with this? Is it okay to use game engines like Unity, Unreal, Game Maker etc? Or would it be better to make a game from scratch to better show case your skills? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated!

      lately I've been working on some ideas for a Game in construct 2 but my biggest setback is art. I have no skill in that aspect of things. I am looking to collaborate with an artist(not necessarily Professional) to bring some ideas to life. plz respond if interested

      Hello 2D Artists,
      I've started making a 2D Puzzle Adventure game for mobile and I'm looking for someone who would want in on creating assets for the game. The core of the programming is pretty much complete, you can walk within the grid laid out and push boxes, when there is an object on top of a pressure pad it will activate the linked objects or if there is one object with multiple linked pressure pads it requires you to activate all points for the object to become active. 

      The level iteration for the game is quick and simple, a Photoshop file that is made of individual pixels that represents objects is put into the game and it creates the level out of those pixels with the assigned objects.
      The objects that need sprites created so far is the character, box, pressure pad, door, trap door, the walls, the stairs and the tiled background.
      I intend to add more objects so the amount I'd like to add will be extended.
      My motivations for posting here is to have something that looks nice to be able to display on my portfolio, so if you're looking for a working game that you can place your art into and improve the look of your portfolio then we're in business.
      Please reply with a few past examples of your art below and I'll be in touch!

      Hi
      I have set up my TcpClient to connect to my server and that works fine. But i am a bit confused how i read messages from the network stream with it continuously running via async, without ever closing the connection ?
      My TcpClient Manager class has:
       
      public async Task<bool> Connect(string address, int port) { try { await _tcpClient.ConnectAsync(address, port); IsConnected = true; return true; } catch(Exception e) { Debug.Log(e); return false; } } public async Task<int> Read(byte[] readBuffer) { if (!IsConnected) return -1; using (var networkStream = _tcpClient.GetStream()) { try { var bytesRead = await networkStream.ReadAsync(readBuffer, 0, readBuffer.Length); return bytesRead; } catch (Exception e) { Debug.Log(e); IsConnected = false; return -1; } } }  
      So i thought to just run a co-routine and call Read constantly to get the most recent message, but that doesn't make much sense to me since a co-routine would be blocked with the await. How is this actually done? The MS Docs don't have very good Async examples with the TcpClient class so i don't know fully get how to keep calling Read correctly.
