This unrepairable bug issue, will it have any effect on the game when compiled and running?

Technical forum / String file & table manager
« on: June 08, 2007, 12:15:36 PM »
Hi,
     I have found an issue reagrding the string table manager and the string file it produces.

The issue is around the code in the game_daemon.script that handles the USE item WITH item mechanic.
The words USE and WITH are given an ID by the table manager but when you run the game using the string file containing these ID`s the ID is shown along with the text USE and WITH.

Example:

 // handle the standard foating caption
  if(Game.Interactive && ActObj!=null)
  {
    if (Game.SelectedItem==null)
    {
      WinCaption.X = Game.MouseX -10;
      WinCaption.Y = Game.MouseY + 40;
      WinCaption.TextAlign = TAL_CENTER;
      WinCaption.Text = ActObj.Caption;

      // keep the caption on screen
      WinCaption.SizeToFit();
      if(WinCaption.X + WinCaption.Width > Game.ScreenWidth) WinCaption.X = Game.ScreenWidth - WinCaption.Width;
      if(WinCaption.Y + WinCaption.Height > Game.ScreenHeight) WinCaption.Y = Game.ScreenHeight - WinCaption.Height;
     }
    // handle the caption when you want to use an object with another
    else {
      var Item = Game.SelectedItem;

      WinCaption.X = 0;
      WinCaption.Y = 0;
      WinCaption.Width = Game.ScreenWidth;
      WinCaption.TextAlign = TAL_CENTER;
      WinCaption.Text = "Use " + Item.Caption + " with " + ActObj.Caption;
    }
   
    if(CAPTIONS)
   {
   WinCaption.Visible = true;
    WinCaption.Focus();
  }
  }
  else WinCaption.Visible = false;



this becomes: -


 // handle the standard foating caption
  if(Game.Interactive && ActObj!=null)
  {
    if (Game.SelectedItem==null)
    {
      WinCaption.X = Game.MouseX -10;
      WinCaption.Y = Game.MouseY + 40;
      WinCaption.TextAlign = TAL_CENTER;
      WinCaption.Text = ActObj.Caption;

      // keep the caption on screen
      WinCaption.SizeToFit();
      if(WinCaption.X + WinCaption.Width > Game.ScreenWidth) WinCaption.X = Game.ScreenWidth - WinCaption.Width;
      if(WinCaption.Y + WinCaption.Height > Game.ScreenHeight) WinCaption.Y = Game.ScreenHeight - WinCaption.Height;
     }
    // handle the caption when you want to use an object with another
    else {
      var Item = Game.SelectedItem;

      WinCaption.X = 0;
      WinCaption.Y = 0;
      WinCaption.Width = Game.ScreenWidth;
      WinCaption.TextAlign = TAL_CENTER;
      WinCaption.Text = "/syseng0101/ Use " + Item.Caption + "/syseng0102/ with " + ActObj.Caption;
    }
   
    if(CAPTIONS)
   {
   WinCaption.Visible = true;
    WinCaption.Focus();
  }
  }
  else WinCaption.Visible = false;


In game, when using an item on an item you get - "/syseng01001/ Use ITEMA /syseng01002/ with ITEMB" appear as the text not "use ITEMA with ITEMB"

How can this be overcome as these words will need to be in the string file for localisation purposes

Hi,
    I want to at the end of the game to move the player to a start screen (no problems with this) and also reset all the variables, global and local, reset all items taken or deleted and reset all states regarding rooms visted etc.

Basically reset all to the state the game started in.


Can this be done easily??


Also will game saves still be usable after this reset?

Hi, I am using a 200x200 light and dark graphic, but I am getting problems with the dark area when the pointer gets to the bottom of my 1048x768 screen.

It basically starts to rise up a little then disappears when I move the pointer up, I can email images if needed?

Any ideas??

Help wanted and offered / Installer designer needed
« on: May 18, 2007, 01:27:04 PM »
Hi,
     I need someone to create an installer using either INNO SETUP or other software.

The game will be deployed on a single DVD and the installer must auto run and install game files as well as have some user options, like selection of language at time of install etc


I will pay for this installer and scripts when finished.

Deadline date for creation of this Installer is MAY 29TH


Many thanks

So let me get this straight in my head, My publisher wants the game in these langauges -

Initially - English

Then: - Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian



So I would create 6 packages ENG_LANGUAGE, RUS_LANGUAGE etc and put a copy of the string.tab (always the same file name) in these packages.
Each version of string.tab has the text in the reflective langauge to the package.

Then using INNOSETUP at time of install get the player to select the string from the appropriate package? yes??

If so how do I initially compile the project? using English string.tab?? or nothing selected in PRIOJECT MANAGER??


Also how would graphical elements, fonts be loaded?? for example backgrounds that hold english text translated into say......German, or fonts for specfic langauge??



Thanks for this , as I think Localisation is a nightmare!!! hahahahahahahaha
