Large tear drop buttons and cool backgraound graphics on David Anderson's travel game

Hi- I am developing programs for youth learners.  These may be really basic- however, I don't know how to "grow" the buttons to be the shape and size like David's Travel Game.  Also- gamers- where do get the neat board games or other graphics to make the back ground? thanks! Grandma Virginia

Aw, hey Grandma Virginia!  We have an Aunt Virginia, but we call her Ginny.  :)

We've got a bunch of really cool, free downloads for you.

And for David's game, I think you might be referring to this gem created in Storyline 1:

I downloaded it and opened it in Storyline 2...looks good.  I can tell by looking at his timeline that those markers were actually pictures that he imported.

The built-in markers you can add using the Insert tab in Storyline can't be resized.  So in this case, David used his own image to really customize the marker effect!

I hope that helps.  Let us know if you need any help!  Also, our Building Better Courses forum is usually rife with good ideas, too.  :)

Hi Virginia!

Most of them just come as assets within a .story file. So, they typically download right into your downloads folder and you can open the .story file and use as you wish. Copy/paste into your project perhaps or just peek around to understand the setup so you can implement the same in your course. Hope that helps!
