Interactive Mysteries in PowerPoint

These slides will introduce you to the tools you

need to use in PowerPoint or any similar software

(eg OpenOffice Presenter) in order to create a simple,

branching, adventure-style narrative.

NOTE: As I wasn't sure what version of

software you would be using, I've done this

in PowerPoint2000 – essentially the same as

2003/XP – but some of the dialog boxes have

a slightly different appearance.

before you begin
Before You Begin

PLAN AHEAD!

Storyboard your ideas out.

Write location descriptions out on index cards.

Lay your cards out on a larger board/card.

Stick them down with blue tack.

Draw lines on the board to show how

your locations are linked.

adding slides
Adding Slides

I prefer not to start with a totally blank template.

A title allows me to easily select the slide I want later.

Bullet points show up in your outline and can be

revealed in turn for effect.

a first slide
A First Slide

An introductory slide

sets the scene, and

can then link to a slide

that is part of the

story's plot.

creating action buttons
Creating Action Buttons

HINT!

You can copy/paste

these buttons once you

have made them

I usually choose the custom

button, as I can then add

some suitable text to it.

hyperlinks on buttons
Hyperlinks on Buttons

The action you

choose (can be

changed via action

settings later) is

to hyperlink to

another slide.

You may need

to scroll down

to find it

choosing a slide
Choosing a slide

Now you can see why giving each slide a

different title is a good idea. Or add a unique

graphic that you can clearly see in the preview...

adding text
Adding text

A right click on a button brings up its own menu.

Very easy to add text or change its settings from here

kiosk applications
Kiosk Applications

You don't want to have someone accidentally click on a different

part of the screen and progress to another slide.

So, from the Slideshow menu, choose the set-up option

that allows you to present your slides as a kiosk application.

HINT: Make sure your pages are all interlinked – otherwise

a user may meet a dead end...
