OK, so as for the AGI front, thank God for Nick.

As for getting everything that you could possibly need to get you started out in AGI game development.

Awesome. Now we just need that Mega-Tokyo archived database.

Does anyone even know how contact someone that had admin privileges  to the board? If so, they might have a database backup. What board system was it using?

Same as this I believe. Simple Machines. Or its predecessor yaBB.

It's the same, smf. Chris's site made use of cb, or cjb or something like that. Kon-tiki would be our best bet for finding anyone. He's been around long before I showed up... But for now, board space has been made, I'll rework the fangames form and page after that. Then I guess it's the tutorials. Or we can just keep our fingers crossed that agigames is coming back. I am.

If it does not come back, it makes more sense to me to migrate the AGI community to here than ScummVM's board.

I'm glad to find another AGI forum since agigames went down.  A big thanks to the host for offering one here!

All in the family Klownstein. It sucks I don't have more ready for you, tutorials, tools, and whatnot but as more of you guys trickle in, you  old agiers know where  your stuffs at better than I do. But if nothing else, make yourself at home, there's lots of room to play.

While searching for a tool (TOK2VOC python script) I had downloaded from the MT forums, I was able to find it here:

There are some other AGI/SCI conversion utilities as well that might not exist anywhere else, figured we'd want to mirror these here?

Does anyone know whose site that is? I'd be interested in talking to that person. The experiences mentioned regarding the AGI to SCI PIC2PIC conversion utility would be very interesting and relevant to the SCI0 support I'm putting into PICEDIT. I had assumed that the line drawing algorithm would be one thing that would not have changed but that site mentions that it did change. Does anyone know if the line algorithm really did change? Or is it that just when drawn at a higher resolution the lines don't match up?

It looks long abandoned to me. It even links to the original MT forums.

I remember that program. I tried using it once to convert KQ2 AGI placeholder backgrounds over to my KQ2 SCI remake but it wasn't perfect. It basically just drew two lines instead of one for every vertical line (because AGI resolution is 160x200 or whatever). It wasn't fool-proof and fill commands leaked into the rest of the picture. I ended up just using Companion's image importer/converter and just captured them via clipboard from AGI Studio or something.

Yeah, in the source code (at least for the TOK2VOC.py script - I assume that he's written all the utils on the site) the author is listed as John Nickerson, email address at mokalus@yahoo.com.au.  I think I read somewhere that mokalus was his handle on the MT forums, but now I can't remember where...

I'm currently working on this.  I couldn't contact Chris, but I've got an email into Patrick (the co-admin of agigames).  Hopefully I'll hear back from him soon.
