I think he runs the Revival Facebook group, too.

Omer, do you know anything about this?

The Games and other Sierra Adventure stuff / INN is Back!!!

The old INN Revival project has been dead for some time now. The developer shut down and would not release his RE'd source code for his server. There was some attempts to repeat his efforts, but they gave up. Omer would be able to say more on this.

A completely new project has come to fruition. A while back Christopher Smith was looking for the original INN server source. He managed to contact one of the old barn employees, James Leiterman where INN was located. While James did not have the server source, being beteen jobs he had some time and was able to reverse engineer it from the client source. The result is the INN Barn project. It is currently in beta stage, but is fully functional and most (not all) of the games work, including some that did not work in the Revival.

I have written a new installer for the INN Barn. This is from a fresh install of the INN client 2.4 (from my Torin's Passage CD) and does not contain all of the debris of the INN Revival. It will configure the client to work with the INN Barn Proxy. All you need do is install and run it. The first time you will be able to create an INN profile for others to interact with you. Once you are through, just click "Play" and it will connect to the Barn. The first time it will assign you an ID. Click OK and the INN client will shut down. Just restart it, click play and have fun reliving the glory days of The Imagination Network.

INN Barn is a WIP with frequent updates of the proxy. Updating the proxy is easy. Just download the latest from James' site and unzip it into the installed folder, overwriting the old one. Windows security may ask you if you want to allow the Proxy access you your networks. Say yes and you are done (til the next update).

SCI Syntax Help / Re: Music/Playing Note Sticks When Leaving a Room

Keep in mind that using sciAudio will limit your game's portability.Users on other platforms may likely not be able get sciAudio to work, leaving your game mute. It will also break the game for ScummVM. sciAudio was a great way to get more extended digital audio for SCI0 games before SCI Companion 3 was released, but with the ability to create SCI1.1 games it makes sciAudio less desirable of an option.

The scripts still have the .sc extension

I know someone that is about to release a new replacement for the INN server.

I tried an early alpha of it and it could let you into areas that the Revival could not. James Leiterman was a developer in the old INN barn. "INN Barn" supports all of the original INN games and should work with new games. Not sure if they need to be developed with LSCI, but it does make make me curious as to how hard it would be to add LSCI support to SCI Companion.

Since I am not currently running Linux I cannot try it out, but it is good to see updated AGI IDEs being released. I have added a link to your fork on the QT AGI Studio entry on the Wiki.

RM0.MSG says it's 1.05, 1987-06-26...

I don't think that version was ever released for DOS. Perhaps this code was the basis for a port to another platform?

Just checked. The Amiga version was v1.05, Int:x.yyy (1987-06-26). The Mac version was v1.05 (1987-06-26)

I remember that Ken once said that AGI was meant to be portable. In SYSDEFS.H it has

Code: [Select]
%var machineType 20
#define PC 0 [PC, compatibles
#define JR 1 [PCjr
#define TANDY 2 [Tandy 1000

#define CORTLAND 7 [?

Thanks for letting us know. Any idea if he has any other Sierra sources?

Perhaps AutoIt or some kind of script?

I think I have said this before, but it is known that Sierra had a test suite for their polygon code. That would be interesting to get my hands on.

I wonder if Omer has a contact. Not sure if he has any systems guys in his contact.
