Small Demo Game - I need some help!

Hey, I’ve decided to work on a small game demo for some practice, and I was wondering how to do some physics.

  1. What settings should I have for the actual map itself in the game logic panel?
  2. How do I make it were when your character hits a certain object, then some text will flash onto the screen for a certain amount of time (15sec.)

Also, the character in the game is a little ball-shaped thing. And you roll around doing certain things. How would I set up the logic for these actions?

W = Go Forward
A = Strafe Left
D = Strafe Right
S = Reverse
Mouse = Change direction

Have you read this?

That will solve your movement problems. For the text flash I would recommend python. Use a touch sensor and an always sensor connected to a python script. Then when the touch sensor is activated have it start the timer. And display the object. When the timer is over 15 seconds. Reset everything, make the text object invisible, and start over.

Good Luck!

P.S. If you can not figure it out I will write you a script when I have more time.
