The solution to the code is that the Wiki accepts the HTML pre tags, but is not in the tool bar. I am plugging in the How tos now. Should we salvage the old Free SCI info, too?

A Wiki is another possible solution. I setup a trial Wiki with one of the How Tos entered.  

http://sierrahelp.com/SCI/Wiki/index.php?title=Determining_location_of_mouse_cursor

This was a simple copy and paste. As you can see, it fails to include all of the script inside of the pre tags, but I am not going to invest much time into sorting this out if no one wants to go this route. It would make for an easier collaborative effort and easy editing.

Edit, By placing a space before the leading code line and the final closing parenthesis the Wiki included all of the code.

While going through these threads it occurred to me that this should not be that hard to put a check in the compiler to see if the game's EXE is running before it starts its compile. If using DOSBox to run the game you might need to check to see if DOSBox is running instead. Now if the source gets cleaned up and commented enough for someone to take this on.

I have developed a template to match the site, here. At this point I am just copying over the threads into the template before trying to rearrange/edit anything. It should go pretty fast, now that I have a template.

http://sierrahelp.com/SCI/Index.htm

I have the last 6 copied over. I have found a problem. The generic Keypad class thread had the code in an attachment that is missing.

Edit: The CSS and the pages themselves should validate.

Yes, leave them. Some may need to ask for clarification or want to contribute further. Perhaps the original post of each thread could be edited to add the URL to the new page and the new page would have a link back to the original thread. That way someone using the static pages could immediately go to the thread if they had a question or wanted to add to it. The main reason to duplicate the threads on a static page is for the extra capabilities that you can do outside of the limitations of the forum software, but keeping the thread too allows for feedback.

I have started to work on something from the How Tos from here. I have copied the theme from the boards here to a CSS file. I'll make a single page from each thread, keeping credits for each. They can be linked on an index page and arranged from there. I'll then go through them to see what may be good to cross reference and add any appropriate extras. When I get enough to show, I'll upload it to the SHP sever so you can see it and give feed back.

PS, If you would rather I not do it, let me know before I get too far into it.

Ordering them in categories makes the most sense. It might be best laid out on a regular web page with screenshots, etc. where appropriate rather than the forum. It would make it easier to add cross referencing, hot links, definitions and the like. I could take a look at that. If there is not enough space/bandwidth here, I could host it on SHP.

I have seen this, too, from time to time. When it happens there is always a new post, but the "New" icon is missing on the thread with the new post. I have not noticed a pattern of when this happens.

SCI Development Tools / Re: Source Release of SCI Companion?
« on: November 25, 2010, 05:58:32 PM »
There are too many free IDEs to ignore. Even Microsoft has Visual Studio Express for free download, even though it does have some limitations. Since Omni started to set it up on SVN, it should be possible to have more than one person working on it.

Ironic that part of the reason that Brian gave it up was the lack of fan games being made with Studio. I feel that would have changed if Studio VGA had been finished. At the time, I was waiting for it to try my hand at it. What would be great would be to have SCI32 to work with, so you could play on modern Windows without an emulator.

The future of Companion may be a dead end, but until someone makes some progress with Studio, that is a moot point. Who knows if Omni will get anywhere, but at least he is has made some attempts to get things started. Putting it on SVN should encourage others. If you can add to his efforts, by all means, please do so. Any contributions would be appreciated.

One thing that you have to give Brian credit for is that he opened the source for Studio VGA when he realized that he was not going to do anything more with it. Too bad troflip is not around to open up Companion.

So did SQ1SCI, but of course that was not SCI0.

If any of us did I image we'd have done something with the SCI Studio VGA source code by now.
True :)

IIRC, Brian used Larry 3 for the template game. Would Hero's Quest or QfG2 provide a more robust interpreter and what would be involved with creating another template game

Is there anything in the source of Studio that may help? Again it would be good if we had the source for Companion.

Could this be done without other changes to SCI? I suppose if any, it would be mostly with the template game. I'm just wondering about any kind of compatibility problems.
