Coding random selections and keeping track of 'em

Just a quick blog to show the "behind the scenes" of Bachelors' Deal.
What kind of coding is necessary here?

Several elements must be randomly generated, such as the 10 contestants (out of a pool of 22 characters) and the sums of money that are taken away after each contestant is eliminated.
In the case of the money, I must also keep track of which sums remain and can be selected randomly as the game moves forward and new contestants are eliminated.



-The above screenshot shows how the third sum of money to be taken away is randomly generated (using a variable randomly set from 1 to 10).
-The result is then compared to the previous two sums that were saved, and a reroll occurs if the numbers correspond (Jump to Label 2).
-When the result is unique, the number is converted to the appropriate sum of money and saved into the cash pointer variable. That variable is then shown in a message box, the host revealing the sum of money that was taken away.

There is a lot of this kind of coding going on in the game! So it can get a little tedious but the result makes for an ever-changing gaming experience.

I've been wanting to go on an RM Relationskip, will play when it's out!
This looks interesting!

And I'll cheer me up, I got dumped by Liberty's game. Worst part is, that she did this to other guys as well. Unbelievable that woman... :|
The download is up!
The game is modest and silly but I hope some of you will have a fun time playing ^^

Big thanks to Link_2112, Healy and Caninemm for helping out with the contestants' answers!

Guys there is a small grammatical error in the last sequence, the host says 'who did you fell for' it should be 'who did you fall for'.
@nhubi: My mistake! Thanks for pointing it out :)

This was a fun little game! Short but sweet!

Feedback:

- I found the text to be quite humurous at times!
- Some of the lines repeated while on the same playthrough, was that suppose to happen? It would be better if each line only appeared once per playthrough (even if that's a nightmare to pull off).
- I enjoyed the cool tint and snow/confetti effects, you did a lot with the presentation considering the contest limits.
- Good use of sound effects to simulate an audience.
- The descriptions of each character by the Host are great!
- Sometimes the dates say contradicting stuff.
- When I have to choose dates to eliminate I don't quite remember what some of them said and can't review it, it's not a big deal though.
- Lol at mithril armour!
- It would be fun to have some sort of short random commercial during the breaks.
- Good use of the RTP music.
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

That happens. Making sure none of the lines are repeated would require keeping track of over 60~70 answers, which would be a nightmare to code and probably not worth it.
Increasing the amount of potential answers would be another suitable, although imperfect solution, but we didn't have enough time or inspiration to write more.

I like the idea. Commercials for games hosted on RMN could be a fun experiment.

I had a similar idea for my game for when you have your character watch TV in game :P

Yeah, it would be a nightmare to do that :P
It's still an impressive amount of text for a week.

I think it would be cool, make it random too!
How do I overcome the problem, "The file system3 cannot be opened"?? But, this usually happens when I play RPGMaker 2003 games and I also tend to give up on the game entirely after that. But, this one's an exception! So, please! And thank you so much for the lovely game! Good Luck on your upcoming works! GodBless!! =D

The problem is that you're missing the file called System3. That file is in the RTP package for RPG Maker 2003.
Download the RTP then install it on your computer: http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages

If the problem persists you might also get some help from reading this thread: http://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/14005/

@iddalai, Link: I think I'll be working on those commercials :) It'll be a nice addition to the game.
