One criticism, looks like the water wheel isn't aligned properly with the building (top looks tilted inward toward the building). 

Glad to hear you are moving towards a Book 2.

I've approved the game, it's now active and can be downloaded.

Hey JRedant, I had a similar issue:  I was able to use the same workaround that you described by setting the palette in the doit method, but it just feels wrong.

I tried loading up SCI Audio to play around; will it work despite being SCI Script when the rest of the game is Sierra script?  I had some difficulty with it, but may just need to play with it more.  I can try to convert it, but it's size still worries me a bit, even the second, smaller iteration.

I started working on changing the syntax to use Sierra script, but I don't think I ever got it finished.  It's a memory hog for sure, specifically because of the array used to pass commands.

That's awesome, all I've ever worked with was output based on de-compiled code combined with symbol files (sound familiar?) resulting in 'inform-ish' scripts.  This is making me want to get back to my Zork project, very nice :)

Some said documentation, might be of some help:

Did you give resDumpPack a try?  Could be that RecreateMapfile has a bug somewhere  :-[

Those are both command-line utilities, you need to provide parameters in order for them to function correctly.

Thanks for the link Gumby.
I had read in the post you made on "Recreate Map Files" in which you had given a link to the compiled version on, but the link there is now dead, clicking on that link will just lead to a 404 error on the SierraHelp site.

Try here:

Or try this utility:

If it's just a corrupted .MAP file, you can rebuild it. I created a utility (and I believe there are other as well) that will do that.

I can't remember, can where the hotspots are defined on the views effect the y value with this?

I'm not sure on this, but would un-claiming the event in the else work?

Code: [Select]

While I've been more-or-less absent I do enjoy checking in regularly.  A 'thank you' to the community from me as well.

Yes, it's the same.

Click either the 'V' (visual), 'P' (priority) or 'C' buttons and use the color picker there.  You'll also need to click the checkbox next to the V/P/C buttons for the draw commands to actually be drawn on the screen(s) you want.
