Teacher needs help! Can't interact with NPCs on a mac?

Postby BassPanda » April 26th, 2013, 9:24 pm

I've been struggling with this for hours, I'm hoping someone out there can help me!
I'm a junior high math teacher and am hoping to get the kids to use Sandbox to create their own games! However, there is one important piece they need to do: they have to be able to interact with NPCs who would ask them questions.

Now, I've read tons of tutorials on how to script GUI, such as:
http://www.sandboxgamemaker.com/wiki/in ... de,_Part_1

However, when I type in that code, I always get the same message:
unknown command showgui

As if "showgui" is the wrong thing to say?

Is it not working because the program works differently on a mac? I'm using Sandbox 2.8.0

Thank you for any help.

Daniel

showgui was the command used for the old user interface known as 3DGui, which has been replaced by newUI (or something like that), which is the interface implemented in 2.8+. As such, the majority of the programming language has been rewritten and most wiki documentation is somewhat outdated. However, if you use an older version (pre-2.8), you should be able to use the old programming.
