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?

Beginners' Technical Questions / SOLVED: Crash Dump File
« on: 31 Jul 2018, 09:57 »

Laptop went off when electricity meter ran out and now I get this dump file:

Can you help?!

EDIT: I saved Game as a Template. Created new Game with it and of course some dreaded blue cups and some ddialogs not running..

Apart from a few other things I'm back up and running once I've re-import lost graphics and remade dodgy dDialog...


Any idea why this should occur?

On command I start dialog options gui. It shows but then errors.

Does anyone think that board games can be a part of AGS games such as Monopoly or Cluedo etc etc?

If you do, then what would you like to see as a board game?


It's never been written or spoken before in the whole history of mankind...

What is it?

It's a phrase....

Be the first to write the phrase never before written or spoken.

"Put the reddish blue pumpkin in the sky and wave it goodbye."

Write your first never before written or spoken......

I'm not quite sure why this was happening..

Compiled game. Copied Compiled folder to Desktop. Ran game and the winsetup reverted back to default settings. Not sure why.
Anyhow, winsetup eventually remained as it was suppose to be.

Another enigma.

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / Picking up objects..
« on: 08 Jul 2018, 15:15 »

we may have had this before but..

Enter room. See a number of objects.

Should you be able to:

A, Pick up all objects whether you need them or not.
B, Only pick up objects you need at that time.
C: Limit the amount of objects you can pick up per visit to room.

What do you think?


This White and blue strip near the bottom appears occasionally. There is a gui at the bottom and nothing else.

Editor Development / Object Instances
« on: 21 Jun 2018, 15:10 »
Has the thought of making objects as 'instances' with copy and paste ever been looked into?

It would save having to make new objects of the same...especially if you need quite a few...

Recruitment / [AGS HELP WANTED] Testers for MAG game.. Filled
« on: 04 Jun 2018, 10:09 »
Looking for testers for my June MAG game 'Groundhog'.

Start around June 10th.

Short game....

Edit: Filled and game uploaded...

This is becoming a regular occurrence:

Unexpected error: Access to the path 'C:\Users\PC-user\Documents\GROUNDHOG\Compiled\Windows\GROUNDHOG.exe' is denied.

--------------------------- May MAG competition---------------------------

This game deals with oppression and having the courage to face the oppressor.
It's a kind of Robin Hood story.

You may notice the link connection with the characters and the topic (laugh)


There had been years of oppression and cheese starvation under King Rat. One day, after having had enough Del, Rodney and Trigger pluck up the courage to put an end to it and plan taking all of King Rat's cheese and feeding the cheese starved. So they pack their lunchboxes and set off to King Rat's Cheesy Castle. Of course getting there is another story as they have to first make their way through a wood to find Checkpoint Charlie, and so their journey begins.

Once they eventually arrive at Cheesy Castle they need to avoid being seen and sneak into the castle. If seen they are put into a dungeon. Once inside the castle they must search the tower and take any cheese they can get. Their eventual aim is to get King Rat and his rat soldiers out of the tower and go to the top of the tower where they can take all the cheese that is there which includes melted Camembert running down the walls and a floor of cheddar cheese.

Beware that you don't get caught as King Rat's soldiers are cut-throats that like to skin lesser rats!

Along the way meet Bovis a villager, Clive who is King Rat's jester, Duncan the Donkey who has an injured leg, a wild Coyote and a rat soldier who wants to jazz up his cheese sandwich!

All solutions to problems can be solved with food... Yes, food.

You can switch who the main character is to either Del, Rodney or Trigger during the game. Keep an eye on your 'Cheese-ometer' as it shows the current weight of cheese taken.

Once you get to the castle you may if you so wish abort and go home.

Be aware that there is some humor towards the end that may offend some! (but not me...he who dares ;))
