Too bad...we'll get a good competition going again sometime, though. I just haven't the time right now.

I'm not going to be able to make it, I'm afraid :(.

Ugh....I haven't had a lot of time at all to work on anything yet. Things suddenly got super busy. There's a good chance I'll be going to an audio production school in September and I'm trying to get ready for that as well as a million other things I have to be on top of. There's still 12 days left, though. You never know.

I did try to sit down with the template and figure out how to do stuff. I didn't get very far. It seems pretty complicated and seeing as how I don't remember a lot of the tricks I learned for regular SCI games, learning a whole new method of developing seemed like a daunting task...

For instance, how do you add a new inventory object (that you pick up and don't start with at the beginning of the game) to the inventory GUI?

SCI Development Tools / Re: SCI Studio vs. SCI Companion

I find everything in Companion is much more intuitive. From the art editing to the scripting. The picture editor in Companion has enhancements over Studio's that sells it for me. I like the elipse tool, the picture importer, the event copy/paster/mirrorer and such. I really have no reason to use SCI Studio other than my Win98 laptop won't run SCI Companion very well at all.

It does open some games differently than others. EGA SCI1 games, or instance, open correctly whereas I believe Version 1 gets the palettes a bit wrong.

Indeed. I believe Version 1 can open some games that my version can't. But anyways. Sorry it took so long. Computer trouble.

I'll get them up when I can. The GUI version that goes with them also has a few capabilities that "Version 1" doesn't have. I'll bundle that too.

Indeed. And we seem to be seeing a resurgence in the Sierra community lately for whatever reason. I believe the Sierra Help Pages and the recent re-releases on GoG have contributed to it in some way. It really is prime time to start making such utilities available for the interested before the interest dies out again.

Ah yes. There's also the SCI EGA decoder and the SIC32 resource dumper that I have as well. I also found some Russian SCI decoding tools somewhere. Basically the same thing as the EGA and VGA decoders, though, except a little more fancy and with less understandable writing (unless you read Russian).

Or did I get that from you?

What sorts of SCI tools do you have, Collector?

Neat idea! And what a great way to get the ball rolling in the community again. Things are looking pretty busy for me in the next few months but I'm sure I can find time to do a short game in P&C. Hopefully there's a good turnout.

Sweet. Having a P&C template game to start from would be spectacular.

It's sitting there....unfinished...on one of my flash drives. I hadn't done a lot of work on it in couple years I believe. I sat down with it a few weeks ago and made the game playable from the beginning all the way until when you get inside Dracula's castle.

And by playable I mean very basic. So far Red Riding Hood isn't random and continually appears on one screen (rather than the few screens she's supposed to show up in), doesn't walk around, and uses AGI graphics. Once you give her the goodies she alters her appearance and then when you leave and come back she's gone for good. The things I have programmed in properly are the wolf, the journey underwater, the ride on the magic carpet, the ride with the boatman and all the different combinations of objects you could be wearing during that time (cloak, ring, and necklace). No baddies show up at all (enchanter, dwarf, Hagatha). I'm really just trying to get the skeletal game fixed up and finishable before I add in all the bells and whistles. The ghosts in front of Dracula's castle work nicely though...but all still AGI graphics.

I'm still haven't finished all the screens in SCI yet. I'm using AGI placeholder backgrounds for about 70% of the game still.
