Game design / Adventure game names
« on: Yesterday at 10:08:44 AM »
Salvete wintermuties :)

What is your take on names for adventure games? How do you pick one? Are there any guidelines do you think would make your game more attractive, playable, amusing, ... ?

Resource Hacker sounds as a wicked name for an adventure game :P

I guess that if you created a game named like that, it would appear listed in engine searchs each time someone wanted to see the guts of a program ... There's a whole underground audience that may end up playing this game inadvertently.

I pick 'Bickadoodle' and my guess regarding its audience is those who like stories such as the legend of King Arthur.

Do you think it's possible to hold the audience attention in an adventure game,  that does not involve a dead person?

I guess it depends on the audience.

In any case, there are other motivations other than what you mentioned. For instance, uncovering a mystery, the supernatural, the unknown (especially something not expected), being amused, being involved romantically with someone, ...

You can use practically any resolution. In any case, take into account that the game will be able to run in full-screen only in standard resolutions.

Hey SilverRabbit

In case this piece of information is useful to you ...

1. I'd like to point out that WME scrolls as needed, so it doesn't matter how big the background image is, since it will be scrolled so you can see the scene as the main character moves about.

2. I haven't tested this goodie myself yet, but here's a resolution chooser used in Night in Fog (a WME game by Dendrobats).

Welcome SilverRabbit :)

As far as I know, WME is able to handle everything you mentioned.

I recommend you check the demo (that comes along with WME DK in the folder 'projects\wme_demo_3d\') named: wme_demo_3d.wpr

In addition to WME Resource Center and documentation, this very message board is an incredible source of information.

Technical forum / Re: Variables lost when saving the game

Salut ylegrand

I think you misunderstood what Mnemonic wrote.

You can keep the definition of your custom global variable within base.inc

Code: [Select]
#include "scripts\const.inc"

global Scene;
global Keyboard;
global actor;

global MyCustomVariable;

Then in a script that is executed only once (such as game.script), you give it the initial value.

Code: [Select]
#include "scripts\base.inc"

//setting default values

MyCustomVariable=0;

Why should you assign its initial value in a script that is executed only once? Because you don't want to reset its value multiple times (unless that's what you intend), as it would be the case if you initialized it in a frequently called script or in base.inc (that is included by default in many scripts).

Does it mean that I need to control the existence of my globales eveywhere I use them in my scripts ?

If you define your global variable within base.inc, as you can see above, as long as you include in your scripts this line (which by default comes along in scripts created from a template): #include "scripts\base.inc" you can just go ahead and use your custom global variable.

Code: [Select]
#include "scripts\base.inc"

...

MyCustomVariable = somefunction ();
MyCustomVariable = MyCustomVariable + 3;

//The initial value is no longer there, now my custom global variable holds the last value I assigned it

Notice the difference between defining a global variable, initializing a global variable and using such global variable.

Technical forum / Re: Keep ResponsesBox visible during dialogues
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:32:04 AM »
Salut ylegrand :)

If I understood correctly what you're trying to achieve ...

If you're interested in keeping an image/design in the background (for instance, representing a dialogue box) for the duration of a conversation, you could display a window portraying such image/design, and then use the response box on top of it.

Here're a couple of quotes which you may find useful:

Windows have an "InGame" property (you can set it in WindowEdit). The drawing order is:

In-game windows
Response box
Inventory box
Non-in-game windows

If you mark your window as "in game", it will be painted before the inventory box and the response box.

Code: WME Script
  1. SomeWindow.InGame = true; // or set the property in WindowEdit

Foro general / Documentación de WME en español

He leído varios mensajes de personas que preguntaban si habían traducciones al español de los diversos documentos de WME en inglés. Jose tradujo hace tiempo gran parte de la documentación y el libro de WME. Y aquí encontraréis la versión traducida de la wiki.
