yup, it's still broken. I'll make sure to test it properly this time ;-)

(Is this for a SCI0 game? Shouldn't really need to use text resources for SCI 1.1).

What are the *.TEX resources?

They're the text resources, same as in SCI0. But in SCI1.1 games they tend to only be used for debugging purposes. Everything a regular player sees comes from the message resources.

Yay!

In other news: why yes, yes indeed this is the bastard love-child of Gabriel Knight and Larry 6 why do you ask?

I'd like to note that the feature builder is also great.

Exporting messages... should it also export the include file if it exists?

During development the file would exist, but not after release...

Also, on that note. I am going forward with development. Test it like you use it right? Anyway it has become a pretty tedious task to convert the work I have completed over to a new template each time. Could you please log any template changes going forward so that I can just make those changes and not have to do this copy and pasting again.

As well, is there a way to change the default global palette. So that I don't have to import the palette that I am using with every new pic?

I can try to do a better job of listing the changes. Are you using a diffing tool, like windiff or something? That would make it easy to see all the changes. (fyi, I'm thinking of changing SetUpPolys_n to SetUpDefaultPolys_n, to emphasize that named polygons won't be included).

I'd love to find a way to avoid having to specify the room number in the SetUpPolys procedure name. But I want to support a room importing two different pic's polygon headers (in case a room switches pics, which is definitely a scenario).

As well, is there a way to change the default global palette. So that I don't have to import the palette that I am using with every new pic?

Hmm, not sure where that default palette is coming from whne you create a new pic... I'll check that out. But anyway, when you import a background, by default it grabs palette 999. So I'm not sure why you're needing to import a palette separately?

The Sierra feature builder built into the script-based debugging thing?

Crash-prone, but great.

Yeah, when you create a new Picture from scratch it takes the SQ5 palette from somewhere, but when you import it uses 999 as a base so it's no big deal.

Earlier today I wrangled Talkers into a passable state. Just now, I put 'em in a permanent fixture.
It's all very LSL6/GK1-like...

Sorry for the doublepost but here's something I've been working on just now, for practice, that I think you guys might like.
