Wow! incredible....

How do you manage the Mac and Linux release? Are there Wintermute players for Mac and Linux available meanwhile? I have not followed the development of WME the last years....

For more feedback you can post the game informations in the forum of the german adventure community:
You can also post in english...

Scripts, plugins, utilities, goodies / Anime Studio -> WME Sprite
« on: July 14, 2009, 01:04:31 PM »

in dependence on the free download of Anime Studio (, here is a tip to export animations to wme sprites (almost) directly.

1. With this free Anime Studio 5 version, you can't export single png files (in Pro version only). But you can export a png based QuickTime movie:
Here you can download an example movie:

2. Download my little python script, to convert a png based QuickTime movie to wme sprite:

3. Edit the script header:

Code: [Select]
# =======================================================================

wme_directory = 'S:/WME_Games/Loeffel/data/'
wme_subfolder = 'actors'

moviepath = 'C:/TEMP/'

frame_hotspot = [70, 240]
frame_delay = 24
frame_alpha = 255

# =======================================================================

wme_directory = directory of your game data folder, important: end with '/'
wme_subfolder = an existent (!) subfolder for the new sprite (actors, interface, items...)
moviepath = path of your png based QuickTime movie, important: an underscore to separating name (Henry) and action (Jump) is required!

Save the script!

4. Start the script:
with double click on the script or in console: >>> python

5. Check your game directory:



Now, double click on the sprite to load it into the sprite editor. Have fun!

Technical forum / change background color?
« on: January 28, 2009, 09:31:14 PM »

in wme, the background color is always black (when I create an empty room for example). I need a white paper to draw all my sprites and interfaces on it. How can I change the default background color? If it's impossible, how I can draw a global white sprite before scene and interface graphics are displayed?

Mnemonic, will you build final (not beta) version of WME?
Yes, please. I hope the support of WME 1 don't stop over the next months...

SetMusicPosition does work properly, GetMusicPosition doesn't.

Sorry I have read over your last post ("There are imprecisions in GetMusicPosition(), up to the size of the sound buffer. This is a known issue...")

OK, I understand... at the moment the GetMusicPosition() function is useless...
But, how can I handle this imprecisions? Can I set or get the size of the music buffer?

Game announcements / 1 1/2 Ritter
« on: December 10, 2008, 03:23:44 PM »

the adventure game "1 1/2 Ritter" ("one and a half knights") based on a german (fun-)movie was created with wintermute engine. (Demo in german available)

A new and interesting example for the commercial use of the engine...

Technical forum / Re: Game.GetMusicPosition() starts with 2999...
« on: December 09, 2008, 09:08:24 PM »
It don't work ...

add this code to your game.script (for example in the wme demo game, line 136):

Code: [Select]
  else if(Keyboard.KeyCode == VK_F9)
var MusicPos1;
var MusicPos2;
MusicPos1 = Game.GetMusicPosition();
Game.PlayMusic("sounds\Strand_1.ogg", true);
Game.SetMusicPosition(MusicPos1); // ---- Here I set the position to MusicPos1
MusicPos2 = Game.GetMusicPosition(); // ---- After this I get the current position to MusicPos2
actor.Talk(ToString(MusicPos1) + " <> " + ToString(MusicPos2)); // ---- MusicPos1 and MusicPos2 should be the same

If you press F9, then the music jumps 2999 ms forward...why? It should be the same position before and after.

Here is a small music file for testing:
This file was created by the ogg-export of Cubase SE 3... I hope the file is not corrupt... but the same problem I have with a generated wav-file.

I need this for an imuse system. At the moment it's impossible to jump between different music files with the same lenght...

« on: March 30, 2008, 06:42:17 PM »
When I examine the Game.GetMusicPosition() and no music is playing, I see "0", Ok. When I start music, the Game.GetMusicPosition() starts with "2999" (3 seconds) immediately. Why?

When I play a song with length 15000 one time, then Game.GetMusicPosition() returns:

Technical forum / Get widget from LoadInventoryBox()
« on: March 17, 2008, 04:21:54 PM »

I want to update a text object (static control with name "line") in my Inventory Box. How I can get the ID of this object? I have tested the follow things, but without success:

Code: [Select]
var gui = Game.LoadInventoryBox("interface\inventory.def");
global gui_line = gui.GetControl("line");

Code: [Select]
var gui = Game.LoadInventoryBox("interface\inventory.def");
global gui_line = gui.GetWidget("line");

Must I extract the ID from included window first?

Can anybody confirm this problem with negative EXPAND_WIDTH?

What are the odds that you implemement a char offset?
(Next update, next big version number, in some years, never?)

Thank you!

« on: March 07, 2008, 04:58:47 PM »
That's what the negative expand_width does. It lowers character widths by two pixels.
OK, I understand. And why I see curious characters and linebreaks, when I set EXPAND_WIDTH negative? Try it. Open the wme_demo in projects and edit the font outline_disabled.font. What you see in preview:

It should be rather easy to implement though.
That would be great!

OFFSET_H horizontal character offset (positiv or negativ)
OFFSET_V vertical line offset (positiv or negativ)
SPACE_WIDTH set the space width manualy
