Advanced Technical Forum / Re: Sockets in AGS
« on: Yesterday at 20:59 »
Yeah, that's the one, but we've been using the same sockets plugin in every AGS Awards Ceremony since, and have never had any problems with it. You can get the source and resources here.

I talked with Wyz about this a couple of years ago. There are two socket plugins, both of them written by him: there's the one used by the AGS Awards Ceremony, which was never released as a standalone plugin, and there's the one that's in alpha (which is a rewrite with a different API).

The newer one is cross-platform, but I don't know that it's ever been tested in real use. The Awards one is proven to work, but is Windows-only.

Man, I thought for sure that was Juliette Binoche, and the guy looked vaguely like Ricardo Darín!

It's when his daughter comes by and he acts like a normal human being for a while, right? Makes sense once it's pointed out. I just watched La La Land by the same director. Loved it. Simmons is in it, briefly, being wonderfully dickish.

You basically got it, so you can go, Kumpel.

It's not Whiplash, is it?

I was gonna say James Bond: Beyond Thunderball... :-[

Pretty sure that's gonna crash, Mandle: it'll loop infinitely during a single cycle, and trigger the loopcheck.

(Sorry, don't have time to address the problem properly.)

Use the new function late_repeatedly_execute_always() to set the position and frame of the mirror image. This ensures that it always matches the character every loop.

Is this from some sort of PSA about movie piracy?

I'm gonna guess "You wouldn't steal a car"

Well you lost me, but OK, sure! ;-D

Correct! The link was the animated Japanese remake (overseen by Goro Miyazaki) that's coming to Amazon Prime soon. (And the thing people took for a lemming or squirrel is a "rumpnisse" gnome wearing Ronia's hat. Apparently they're called "rump-hobs" in the new translation.)

Final screencap I had prepared:

Was this more difficult than I expected, or are you all too afraid to look at the manflesh? Well, here's a non-nsfw capture:



The link with the last one has to do with a remake that's coming to the US...

Just got an email from Humble Bundle telling me my Samaritan Paradox order is ready. Finally! ... Though I could've sworn I played this game like two years ago. :-D ;)

OK, this one is loosely linked to the last – for certain forum members it will probably be very easy, so if you're one of them, maybe only answer if you can also explain the link.

Spoilered because NSFW:

I think we'd probably have gotten it pretty quickly regardless. Once it was clear you literally meant a Japanese videogame adaptation, there aren't that many popular ones to choose from.

Stay tuned for another one...

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV?

(Found by googling to see whether there was a FF movie last year.)

Yeah, I agree with Ben that lighting makes a big difference here. For the big cylinder thingy, I think most of the detail disappears in the murk. It's really only that little panel with the dials at the bottom that stands out, but no more so than the rest of the stuff on that wall (although of course that is hidden by the bike).

Shin Godzilla?

The sound effects aren't somehow speech files, are they? You might want to check Game.SetAudioTypeSpeechVolumeDrop or the "VolumeReductionWhenSpeechPlaying" property in the editor in any case.
