Hey

It's been a while. I hope you all played Pizza Morgana i made with Wintermute.
Anyways - Recently I've been pouring my life into a new game called Bolt Riley that I've worked on since November 2011.

It’s a 2D point and click adventure game I designed myself along with legendary game designers Corey and Lori Cole who made Quest for Glory.

It tells the story of the greatest Reggae musician that ever lived and deals with many important subjects like dealing with racism, bullying and oppression, it has themes of peace, love, and friendship.

Please check it out on Kickstarter:

Thanks!

Hey,

i would like to ask that the scene's ambient color would be passed to the shader as semantics so we can see wysiwyg changes on effects of actors in the scene.

Hey Guys,

been a long time since i posted on the forums.
I've been busy making songs for Rock Band (http://lehakatRock.com) and an iphone/ipad game (http://starshipping.corbomitegames.com) while working on the assets of Pizza Morgana episode 2, and coding KISA (http://kisa-world.com)

anyways,
I'm going to be in Berlin on Sept 13th to 15th and wondering if either any of you guys are there and want to meet up and hang out, or if any of you know any game companies or adventure game publishers there that i can meet.

have a good one!

Bug reports / Autosave Pizza Morgana Episde 1 crashes with WME 1.9.1
« on: January 17, 2010, 09:08:22 PM »
Yes, i tried replacing the pizza.exe with the one WME 1.9.1 makes in the regular release that you have - and it crashes.
The game calls the autosave function when you choose to exit from the in game menu while playing.

I'll appreciate it you either find a workaround, or fix it asap. I want to rerelease Episode 1 with toon shaders.

Technical forum / Theora actors
« on: January 04, 2010, 08:15:47 AM »
Hey,

i got an idea for a protytpe with FMV actors (i.e. phantasmagoria / tex murphy style) .
I'm considering how to do it - shoot the live actors over green screen, and remove it in some editing software.
but then how would i load them into WME? as a series of PNG's ? that seems like a lot of work. Is it possible to be done as Theora video? can i define transparancy to theora video?

Technical forum / default scite settings
« on: January 02, 2010, 04:58:13 AM »
Hey,

when i installed WME 1.9.1 , it runs over the scite properties. Luckily, i remembered it doing it from previous upgrades, and made a backup copy.
first i'd like to suggest that the installer won't override them, but somehow compare them to what it has to install and applis the diff like a good source control woudl do.

other than that, i want to suggest some improvements to the configutarion files.

1.  file SciTEGlobal.properties line 156:
Code: [Select]
find.files=*.script *.inc *.def *.window *.ACT3d
no need to have .C there...

i also define
Code: [Select]
buffers=99
in line 109



2. to enable the compilation, you actually need to add this line in wme_tools.properties

Code: [Select]
command.go.subsystem.$(file.patterns.script)=1

Technical forum / Static text in a scene
« on: December 29, 2009, 03:30:18 AM »
Other then loading a window along with the scene and unloads when you leave it, is there any way to place a static text field in the scene, like the contents of a billboard?

Technical forum / background conversation demon - best practice?
« on: December 16, 2009, 10:18:05 PM »
Hey,

I'm trying to figure out what's the best way to code a background conversation for two characters, like we did with Abbie and The Watcher in the forest of Pizza Morgana Episode 1.

My current architechture includes using a deamon script that runs in the background.
This sort of works in my Episode 2 code, up until when i try to change scenes, and it causes WME to crash (i susptect because two scripts might be calling the same entity's talk function while one is already running, i don't know why it causes WME to crash, though, i'll also mention that the talk function is overriden because of our baloon system, which might cause the crash)
The method is as follows (slight  Episode2 spoilres included) :

Create a script called TinyTalkConvDaemon :


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

on "StartDaemon"
{
Sleep(2000); // sleep for safely
TalkCycle();
}


method TalkCycle()
{
var TalkCount = 1;

while (GameState.AngryWatcherStage < 6) {
if (Scene.Name != "DoubleDep") // quit daemon if we're not in the scene.
return;
Sleep(1500);
// can we talk? if not wait until we can.
while (!CanTalk()) {
Sleep(2000);
}
// altrenate between the two characters's lines.
if (TalkCount % 2 == 0) {
//Watcher1.TurnTo(ClerkConvince);
Watcher1.TinyTalk("/DIALOG_DOUBLEDEP_TINYTALK_WATCHER1_CLERKCONVINCE_0" + TalkCount + "/MISSING TEXT DIALOG_DOUBLEDEP_TINYTALK_WATCHER1_CLERKCONVINCE_0" + TalkCount);
} else {
//ClerkConvince.TurnTo(Watcher1);
ClerkConvince.TinyTalk("/DIALOG_DOUBLEDEP_TINYTALK_CLERKCONVINCE_WATCHER1_0" + TalkCount + "/MISSING TEXT DIALOG_DOUBLEDEP_TINYTALK_CLERKCONVINCE_WATCHER1_0" + TalkCount);
}
if (TalkCount < 8) {
TalkCount = TalkCount + 1;
} else {
TalkCount = 1;
}
}

}

function CanTalk()
{
if (Scene.InConversation == true)
return false;
if (Game.Interactive != true)
return false;
if (Scene.Name != "DoubleDep")
return false;
if (actor != Watcher)
return false;
return true;
}

Generatit if the first time in Scene_Init:

Code: [Select]
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
if(!StateDoubleDep.Visited)
{
StateDoubleDep.Visited = true;
// this is our first visit in this scene...

global TurnCycleDaemon;
global TinyTalkConvDaemon;

if (TinyTalkConvDaemon == null)
TinyTalkConvDaemon = new Object("scenes\DoubleDep\scr\TinyTalkConvDaemon.script");


call it from scene init whenerver we enter the scene, using an event so it won't cause the scene init script to wait for it to end and runs in a new thread:
Code: [Select]

if (TinyTalkConvDaemon.CanHandleEvent("StartDaemon"))
TinyTalkConvDaemon.ApplyEvent("StartDaemon");


some questions and discussions :

1. is this the best way to do it?

2. IN the episode 1 deamons, i didn't use the events, but instead i just called TalkCycle() from the script's own code which is executed when the script is loaded.

3. We also used to keep it as a scene_init this.variable instead of a global, and unload it when leaving or entering the scene . is it the right way to do it ?

4. are there any posibilities for zombie daemons still running when you exit or re-enter the scene?

5. do many scripts of this type causes the engine to run slower (we have unresolved performance issues with EPisode 1 which we don't understand)

Technical forum / Shadow Model isn't skinned when moving from DX8 to DX9
« on: December 11, 2009, 02:41:59 PM »
Hey,

I have a problrem with Jackie's shadow when moving from using WME in DX8 to DX9.

When using DX9, the shadow model is always in t-pose as if the bones and skin isn't applied to it.
it works ok in DX8 in WME 1.8.10 but when changing it to DX9 or moving to WME 1.9.0 it behaves like this.

here is a screenshot

and the .X file

any ideas why is this happening or who to fix it?
