You could always do something similiar to what SLUDGE does.  That is, have a "LightMap" layer in the scene which is nothing more than an invisible image that describes the brightness/colorizing of the actor.  The brightness and color of the lightmap pixel at the point the actor is standing is used to adjust the brightness/color of the actor.

Updated docs would Rock!  I actually do read them (when necessary).

Feature requests, suggestions / Re:LAN Support
« on: April 07, 2003, 11:06:19 PM »
Well, I have several ideas.  The first and most ambitious would be a twist on the point&click adventure where say 2 people connected via a LAN could each control an actor in the "game environment".  It would require some serious rethinking on the typical linear, 1 player approach to adventure games.  Honestly, I haven't thought it through very far.

The other idea I had was to write simpler types of multi-player games... board games and stuff like that.  I know that WME is not specifically designed for that but it seems to have enough fuctionality to do it.

Feature requests, suggestions / LAN Support

Have you ever considered providing basic LAN (multi-player) support using DirectPlay or something like that?
Really all you would need is a way to create sessions and send messages back and fourth.

Me and my son have been playing some LAN games at home and it got me to thinking.  Just a thought.

Technical forum / String Tables
« on: March 26, 2003, 01:30:18 PM »
Can someone give me a quick overview of string tables (what they are and how to use them)?  Would this be something suitable for storing dialog all in one place?

Very nice article Scarpia!  You have definately put a lot of thought and work into it.  It has certainly gotten my wheels spinning for my game.

Thanks for the effort and for sharing it with us.

Hey thanks!  That gives me even more ideas.  ::)
Do these "stances" work elsewhere (stand, walk, etc.)?

Technical forum / Changing an actors sprites
« on: March 19, 2003, 04:40:20 PM »
Is it possible to change an actors sprite at runtime?
Say I want to temporarily change the actors 8 Talk sprites to something else.
I noticed a SetSprite method for the Entity object.  Does the Actor object have a similar method, and if so, what is the syntax for using it?

Hm, I guess someone should finally kick my ass to finish those damn docs...  ::)
Consider yourself kicked!  :o

Game announcements / Re:My first WME Scene

Hey, thanks for the encouragment!  

Update: I just played it  I love the graphics and the puzzles you implemented until now! I'd say: CONTINUE  
I'm curious... did you make it out of the room?

I will never understand how people are able to create whole games in 3D, I would need days just to create something like the couch... !
Well since I can't draw it's my only option!  :)
Actually I usually just search the web for free models and modify them to my liking.  If I don't find something close to what I want, then I'll make it from scratch.

Game announcements / My first WME Scene
« on: March 12, 2003, 11:17:41 PM »

Here's a playable scene from my tinkerings with WME.  I really dig this engine!

Download here: (about 10M)
Unzip and throw it in a folder with wme.exe

It's still a bit rough around the edges.  Who knows, I might even make a whole game.

Oh yeah, it's compiled with build 19 and requires hardware acceleration.

The wme.exe (WME engine runtime) can be downloaded here: (400 KB)

All is right again in the world  ;D

WME Rocks!

Sure enough!  Using .Blocked instead of .Active did the trick.  I wasen't aware of the .Blocked attribute.

Thanks Jerrot!

Technical forum / Possible blocked region bug
« on: March 11, 2003, 01:24:59 PM »
It seems I am unable to toggle the Active state of a blocked region at runtime.  The Active state seems to always stay at whatever value it is set to in SceneEdit.
