First, take a look at this “fake branching” demo. The story is somewhat whimsical and it “feels like” it’s personal, as it provides choices and responses. In reality, there’s no real branching.
Out-of-the-box, Articulate Rise (at least at this point) does not provide branching. You can, however, add stacked buttons as a choice to make. The problem is that every lesson shows up in the menu, and that kind of kills the thrill of a choose your linear adventure.
Branches are hidden in the menu.
1. Lesson ID (you can see this by hovering over the lesson in the published Rise course: #/list/1 The id is "1") 2. Branches (lessons to hide that belongs to this scenario. Use comma to seperate them: "2,8,4") 3. Status. This is the only number you pass: 0 - Not visible, 1 - Visible You need to show the first one at least. 4. Next Branch ID. If you do multiple fake branching, add the next ID here. 5. Previous Branch ID. If this is the first branch, set it to "0" since there's no previous branching. Otherwise, set it to the previous branch ID.
Example: you set up one scenario with three branches and an end page. You check the menu and the ids are the following:
Scenario -> 1
Branch 1 -> 2
Branch 2 -> 4
Branch 3 -> 5
End Page -> 3
You would add the following one line (after removing the existing setBranchData lines):
“1” is the ID of the scenario lesson
“2,4,5” are the IDs of the three branches you want to hide
1 is a status to show the scenario (if you had another scenario in the same lesson, you would give a 0 to hide it but the first scenario you want to show)
3 is the next lesson ID. Currently, it points to the end page. If you have more than one scenario, it would point to the next one.
0 is the previous scenario as this is the opening one. If you had multiple ones, you would add the previous lesson id here.
TIP: don’t forget to show the developer window in your browser to see if there’s any red errors (Ctr+Shift+I in chrome). It also clears your cache every time you refresh your screen when testing.
