Title: WinAGI Version 1.2.5
Post by: AGKorson on August 14, 2019, 12:29:55 AM
I got a request to add some shortcut keys to the view editor in version 1.2.3. I also wanted to include some additional support for non-standard characters in message text, so I added an option to insert characters by using 'slash codes'. For example, "\x01" will insert character 0x01, "\x1A" will insert character 0x1A, and so on. There are also a couple more minor bug fixes.

You can find the install file on the AGI Wiki page for WinAGI (http://agiwiki.sierrahelp.com/index.php?title=WinAGI).

And for those who are hoping for a Linux version of WinAGI, I have decided to begin work on re-writing WinAGI in C#. It is going to take me a lot of time, as I am looking at a pretty steep learning curve. I'm not making any promises on a completion date, but I'll try to provide occasional updates.

Thanks for updating the Wiki, too, though I see that the source is still is for 1.2.3.

Or you could build on top of Visual AGI for a bit of a head start. Lance's work should have filled in the logic and sound backend, so it mostly needs the sound editor and compiler.

Yeah, I didn't bother. I don't think anybody is actually interested in the source anyway. But I suppose for completeness, I'll upload it eventually.

Maybe. I haven't seen what they've done yet. I would want to make sure all the enhancements of WinAGI are included, especially the additional tools. And I'm not interested in a joint SCI/AGI tool; I think they are too different (and the user bases are also too different).  I figure I will use this exercise as a way to finally learn a modern dev language. It's a bucket list thing. So porting WinAGI as its own program is of interest to me.

I'll email Lance and see if he'll give you access to his branch since it probably has a more complete backend for his C# interpreter.
