The Imitation Game - an offer
« on: July 02, 2015, 07:33:44 PM »
Long, long ago, long enough for me to have irretrievably lost it all, I implemented a few things in SCI0; a questionnaire ala Larry, and a battle system like in Quest for Glory -- albeit somewhat simplified. Also an even more simplified Mega Man Battle Network system. I did these first two without looking at any code, for I could and can not read SCI machine code and had no decompiler. Thus, the only straight copy (IIRC) was the question format. I might've expanded those battle systems if things hadn't happened.

I do so enjoy a little challenge, so here's the deal: you suggest something like the things above, things like battle systems or minigames, and I'll try to implement it in SCI11, assuming it seems reasonable, then release it with adequate documentation and probably placeholder art.

The challenges:
  • Scored question list
  • Simple QfG battle system
  • Health meter

The downloads:

  • Health meter - Gumby implemented one for 120 Below (SCI0)
  • Stats building - Don't remember if Doan did one for Betrayed Alliance.

Looking at the screenshots on this page for these two games, I have two thoughts:
  • Put the health meter in the status line, since that's a thing we can totally do.
  • Let's just... pick our noses or something.

Okay, I lied. I had these thoughts long before looking at the screenshots and merely confirmed them just now.

Code: [Select]
= correctAnswer (- (& textBuffer[0] $FF) $30)
= textBuffer[0] (| (& textBuffer[0] $FF00) $20)
This is abuse, I tell you! Abuuuse!

But hey, at least it lets me encode the correct answer in the question, Larry-style, instead of having a separate array like Space Quest 5.

How the hell'd I do it way back then?

Seconded.  ;D It can get much worse though... picture this stuff combined with Memory and odd pointer voodoo.

Questionnaire has been updated with more questions -- twenty now -- and a skip cheat.

One of these games is not like the others. One of these games just doesn't belong.
A. Space Quest Ⅲ The Pirates of Pestulon
B. Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist
C. Monkey Island Ⅱ LeChuck's Revenge
D. King's Quest Ⅴ Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder

The answer is (A) Space Quest 3.
Because it's the only game (beside Monkey Island 2) that involves pirates.

Depends on what the criteria are. SQ3 is the only EGA game, MI2 is the only non-SCI game, KQ5 is the only one that is not more comedy than drama, SQ3 is the only one that does not take place in the past.

Freddy Pharkas has no Roman numeral.

Anyway, that's two outta four challenges. Any others?
