okay Lorn, since no one is giving you what you asked for, here goes. A step-by-step tutorial on making the blue numbers appear.
Okay, first, create a spell.
Set the level to 0.
Set the mana cost to 0.
Set the duration to 1.
Set the target type to "Caster"
Ranges are not needed.
Set spell type to defensive.
Set the damange minimum to -1.
Set the damage max to -1.
Set the damage type to magic (although this won't matter)
Under animation, select "No animation."
Save and name it "HP +1" or anything like that. Has no effect on the spell.
Now, create the apple item.
make sure to make it do nothing, e.g. 0 stamina, 0 magic, 0 strength, etc.
Click on the "Links" tab.
Click on "use"
select the sound you would like to play at item use in the sound field.
now, click the "edit..." button next to where it says "link"
In this window, add a spell wizard object.
Under spell wizard, select "cast spell" and then click the checkbox next to the spell that you just created, HP +1.
There you go! now just close and save. Now, when you use the apple in any way, by either using the inventory or pressing the "a" key, those nice little blue numbers will appear. If you want the cheese to heal for 3 over a period of time, do exactly the same thing, only set the damage fields to -3 each, and click on the "damage each round" checkbox. You'll also need to set the duration of the spell to 3.
Hope I helped! Good luck!
