General Discussion / The Greatest Muhammad Ali
« on: 08 Jun 2016, 16:24 »
It's almost one week and I'm surprised that no one has posted this already.

The greatest Muhammad Ali---as I'm sure almost all of you would have known by now---is no more. May the champion rest in peace.

He was quite phenomenal. He was one of those very rare sportsmen. He was loved by everyone around the world. Generations were crazy about him! He was a common household name. Add that to the fact that the name 'Muhammad Ali' is already a very common here, and you can be sure that his name can't be easily forgotten ever. I personally know at least three 'Muhammad Alis'.

My father, my uncles, my grandfather, and a lot of elders around me often talked about him. They would tell how they made sure to not to miss any single match of his (which were broadcasted live, btw---something not common in Pakistan in those days). Despite never being fortunate enough to get to watch him live, I grew up having a lot of respect for him. And when I later came to know about his stance on Vietnam war, my respect for him only deepened.

Since this is a forum for old(school) people, I'm sure many of you must have seen his matches.  Tell me how the greatest Muhammad Ali was in your country as a phenomenon?

Hello BTQ, long time no see! :)

Since the last time I visited here, I've learned much about AGS
Scripting and still continue to do so. I, however, don't have any prior
experience of Voice Scripting. Therefore, I decided to have a go. But
unfortunately, I've come across a problem and I don't know what to do
now.

My character name is cMom. I wanted to add voice speech for this
character. I read the manual and followed its instructions. I copied my
voice clip (.mp3 file) in the game's Speech Folder and named it MOM01
(faithfully similar to the manual entry).

Then I added the following code:

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. function cMom_Interact(){
  2.     cMom.Say("&01 Why is your room so messy every time I walk in
  3. here?"); //lets name this whole line "A" for now.
  4. }

But no sound/voice is played. I thought that maybe I accidentally turned
 volume down either within game or externally. But when I checked,
neither was true. I added a sound effect and it was playing fine. Then I
 thought that maybe something is wrong with this clip so I even copied a
 song (.mp3 file) into my Speech folder and renamed it to MOM08. But
still, no voice is played when I call the following code:

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. function cMom_Interact(){
  2.     cMom.Say("&08 Why is your room so messy every time I walk in
  3. here?");// lets name this whole line "B" for now.
  4. }

I checked my Compiled folder and speech.vox was present with the
exact size of my Speech folder. I tried rebuilding my files but to no
avail. After some more banging my head on my desk, I noticed a
warnings.log created in my game folder. It said:

(in room 6): Speech load failure:
'~speech.vox~Mom1.mp3'
  ---- when I were using A.

and

(in room 6): Speech load failure:
'~speech.vox~Mom8.mp3'
  ---- when I used B.

I wanted to know:

1. Why is the game failing to load speech?
2. Is .mp3 not properly supported by AGS?
3. What am I doing wrong?

I searched the forums before posting here. But I couldn't find something
 similar of this nature.

Thanks in advance. :)

Time for a new Colouring Ball Competition!

Here's the shape:

This time, the theme is: The World As You See It.

Background Introduction:
This goes without saying that the world is as you see it and how you see it. Imagine yourself looking out of a window. What you're seeing? A Dark, Gloomy Place with no hope? Or a beautiful, cheerful place full of hope? Carefree children playing outside or the Elders waiting for the end of their life?

Instructions:
Create something which shows that you're looking out of a window. What scene you depict, is the way how you see the world!

Guide:
To make the shape more comfortable and understandable to you, here's a quick guide (zoomable image):


Rules:
  • You're free to depict any kind of scene but the scene should look like that it's being viewed from a window.
  • You must show the frame of the window. Whether the window is opened or closed, is entirely up to you. You'll have to draw the frame accordingly.
  • You're free to use any style for the window's frame but as mentioned before: you must show the frame of the window.
  • You must use, at all costs, the lower portion of the shape to depict either a ledge, a furniture piece (which may be placed beneath the window) or just plain room wallpaper. The choice is yours.
  • The size of the shape should be enough for everybody. If anyone is unhappy with the size, they're allowed to change the size. Provided, the shape is kept intact.
  • You must show furniture/ledge/wallpaper below the frame of the window (in the area which I've shown).
  • The frame must be inside the shape.

Deadline for the Submission of Entries is: October, Friday 4th, 2013, 23:59 GMT. It maybe extended if someone requests. Voting has began. Please see my latest below for details. Voting has been finished. We've got a winner, please see my latest post in this thread for more detail.

Good luck and have fun! :)

    Everyone listens to music more or less and loves a particular genre. My questions are:
   
  1)  What is your favorite music genre?

  2)  Who is your favorite artist relating to that genre?

    I like Ghazal Genre very much and My Favorite Singer relating to that genre is Jagjit Singh.

P.S: Don't know if there were a post similar to this. If there were, it would be nice to have this again so that new members can answer this too.

Critics' Lounge / My First Attempt
« on: 01 May 2013, 10:21 »
Hello Everyone. How are you all? When I thought that I have learned enough scripting to get myself started. I moved to more difficult task: "Drawing". I had never been a good artist and it is even more difficult for me to draw pixel art on pc.
    I thought it would be best to start from (320x200) so that when I became good enough I would then move onto bigger resolutions.
    Well, I tried my best and spent one and a half hour on my first character sprite. I have made front and side views. I have also added some shading (but I am not sure it is good). I have also made talking animation for front and side views.
    Please criticize it and suggest me some improvements. I am using Aseprite for drawing sprites. I apologize in advance, if my you couldn't understand my words since I am not a native English Speaker.

P.S: I liked the way, characters used to nod while talking in Yahtzee's Trilby Series. I tried my best to make them nod but I couldn't succeed. Can you guide me?

Hello All Members.
I am new to A.G.S. & its community. Now I am facing a problem. I would like you all to help me.
I have two characters. I want my player character to give (use) an inventory item to the NPC. I have done it all right. Player gives the item. Item also disappears from the inventory. BUT the REAL PROBLEM starts when I want to add the interactive dialogues. I have read in forums to use 'character.say' command, but N.P.C. only speaks.
    I, on the other hand want N.P.C. to ask (such as:) "Which item would you like to have?" and then player would choose from the three items, such as (book, journal or pen). And then he may receive his chosen item. How can I do it? Also, please be kind enough to upload the code because I am not too good in scripting.
