Mega Tokyo Archive for AGI and SCI Finally Live
« on: June 15, 2023, 10:15:37 AM »
It's been a long time coming, the first couple of times I tried to get these archives added (a couple of years ago) I failed miserably and the project got put on a shelf. Well over the last couple of days I have been looking at this again, and this morning, I fired the trigger. Of course I made a back up before I did, just in case everything caught on fire like the last couple of times. But it seems to have actually worked.

The AGI and SCI archive boards are set to read only and are there really just for fun... These closed down a long time before SCI Companion ever existed, so while you may find some code in there... we have come a long way since then.

I think I'll still keep my own copies online, who knows what happens to either of 'em.

Thanks for that! So cool going down memory lane...

It just hit me that while Brian used to have a working decompiler for LSL7 back in 2003 (which he didn't release), we are still unable to decompile that game 20 years later  :(

In this post I was asking about what the AUTOTP file triggers in LSL7, and I'm still unable to answer this question today...

Absolutely.

One flaw is that the internal links in the threads still lead to the old forums. Probably too much work to fix them.

Not sure how I would go about it automatically fixing all of the internal mega-tokyo links, but it looks threadid in the old links equals topic in the new link... and they are 2250 apart from each other. Here I edited the link that Omer pointed to for demonstration.

Uh, and about debug modes take a look at this thread:

http://www.mega-tokyo.com/forum/index.php?board=5;action=display;threadid=1491;start=0

*Update: I think this old link, now points here...
https://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=3741.0

* Update: Looking at the backup I have, it doesn't look like we have everything... I did a search of the database looking for a big chunk of the mega tokyo link text and I found this post
https://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=77.msg197#msg197

However when looking at the post, the link that is listed points to topic 7016 and message 58350
http://mega-tokyo.com/forum/index.php?board=5;action=display;threadid=7016;start=msg58350#msg58350

BUT...

The backup I have of mega-tokyo, the topics end at 6883 and messages end on 57328, so from what I am seeing, whatever post I was linking doesn't exist

That is what I noticed about the links and could not see a way to automatically correcting them. It is not as if all you had to do is replace the domain name.

Sluicebox has done a full decompilation of lsl7. I had a quick look, apart from what you said in setting global243 to 1, it does absolutely nothing! There are no other references to that variable or the autotp file in the entire codebase.

My guess is it was some unfinished code or extraneous code that stayed around for production.  Maybe it was something planned that was never implemented.

That code comes from Torin's Passage. They used that as a starting point for LSL7.

Thanks,
I'm aware of Sluicebox's archive and took a look myself. I believe this was debug code that was removed in the production build.
I made an analysis of Torin's Passage similar code in this post: https://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=9135.msg74330#msg74330

Were you able to restore the debug in Torin?

Was the PIKACHPT.SC you posted from leaked source code or was it decompiled? Companion's compiler does not seem to like it.

Leaked source.
If you want additional snippets of code from the game, LMK.

I'll take as much as you can give. You can PM me if you do not want it released publicly.
