Simple question

Winzip or 7Zip:

When i run my game using the phylactere module i now seem to be getting a rectangular black line around the text inside the speech bubble..

This has only recently beg to happen and i have not touched the module prior...

Any ideas?



This line:  phylactere.is_transparent =bool ; was set to false..I set it to true and it seems to have taken the line around the text away...

For some strange reason my player will not lose any inventory when instructed.

3.4 0.16

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. cJason.LoseInventory(iFlower);
  2. cJason.ActiveInventory=null;

EDIT: I amended the item inventory width in window by -4 pixels and it's fine now (nod)

Using this I am getting the comma, after the closing".

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1.   LSirens.Text=(String.Format("%s,%s,%s,%s",
  2.   "It is said that Hera, queen of the gods, persuaded the Sirens to enter a singing contest with the Muses.",
  3.   "[[The Muses won and the Sirens were banished into the sea at Ghoul as sea nymphs.",
  4.   "[[The Sirens took revenge by luring sailors onto sharp rocks by their beautiful voices where they proceeded to devour them.",
  5.   "[[The only way to overcome the Sirens when they are wailing is to play a beautiful song which will cause the Sirens to die."));

The Campaign Of Daphne White
Download here   

MP Daphne White is enforcing her censorship policies on her constituent public. The public are outraged that their freedom to choose is being taken away so they march to the 'House' to protest against Daphne White's censorship policies. The 'House' turns down their protests. The constituent public decide to take matters into their own hands by defying Daphne White and going about breaking her censorship policies.

"You all know about the censorship policies I have presented to the House."
"There is far too much sordidness going on within my constituency."

There are four censorship quests (different characters) that can be done in any order and you can change quests at any time.

Meet Sally, a friendly Labrador and drive a pink convertible... You may even come across a smelly skunk (laugh)

This game presents adult themes.

Gameplay: about an hour.

Only tested by yours truly....

Some Screenshots:
Jim and Bert need to get into the paper recycling plant and retrieve nudie mags.

Brian needs to get into the tv center and enable adult tv programs.

It seems Game.TextReadingSpeed is not complying.

  1. Game.TextReadingSpeed = 9; // makes no difference to time on screen.


Edit: Just realised I am using the Phylactere Module :-[

General Discussion / Audacity recording from soundcard
« on: 17 Aug 2018, 14:26 »

I've been using Audacity for recording audio for years but now I have hit on a problem.

My Audacity is 2.2 2

I have a new computer: Lenova G51.

My laptop is 64bit.

I can record using the built in Mic but I can't seem to record from the sound-card when recording from an online source.

There is only Microphone Conexant or Microsoft Sound Mapper in selecting recording source.

In the SOUND recording settings properties of Windows it only shows Microphone,

I installed Realtek sound drivers but to no effect.

Can you help?

Beginners' Technical Questions / Game very slow
« on: 06 Aug 2018, 19:58 »

after my laptop was declared dead the repair men suggested getting my old desktop pc working...

He ended up installing win7 over the old XP...

Luckily he managed to with leads run data off my old hard drive to be able to access its data on desktop pc.

I had to download ags i had previously used

I managed to have it install ags in the Windows Dir...and editor opens ok.

It took a while to list the Templates I had pasted into the Templates folder.

Anyhow, I loaded up the Template and it was ok.

The monitor I now use is larger than the laptops.

The game res was set to 1280 x 1024, 32 bit and uses 3D9...Strtech to fit selected.

However, when i run the game it is extremely slow and not as it should be..or just stays black screen...

My lowest pc res is 800 x 600 and highest is 1600 x 1200...

Suggestive help appreciated..


EDIT: It seems that the pc is not picking up my videocard to run 3d9..

Anyone got a computer to spare free.. mine might well be dead?
