Is it somehow possible to paste text from the clipboard into the game? Is there a plugin that can do this?

How do the AGS Awards work?
(This is information mostly for new members, same procedure as every year)

Every year, the AGS community embarks on a quest to find the best games made in the last year. All games are eligible, that were added to the AGS Database in the year 2017. There is a For Your Consideration thread where authors can promote their games and players get a good overview what might be worth playing.

The awards are a two-step process: First there is a nomination phase where all community members can nominate the eligible games in several categories (it will be the same categories as last year). The top five games of each category make it to the voting. Again, all members of the community can vote on their favourite games.
The final result is then announced in a live ceremony that can be joined either with a special client or any regular irc client (details to follow).


Party like it's 1990 in this thread!

Completed Game Announcements / Kanji Gakusei
« on: 30 Dec 2017, 18:54 »

Kanji are Chinese characters that are used to write the Japanese language. There are several thousands of them. All Japanese children have to learn about 2200 kanji at school. Gakusei (pronounced "gucksay") means student.

Help our little girl to finish her homework by finding the six required Kanji.



Once you have found the characters, it is YOUR task to write them in her notebook.
An animation shows the correct writing stroke by stroke. Can you write them in the correct order?

 


Download here


The game uses Besh's MOUSE GESTURE SYSTEM script module that I enhanced a bit to support kanji.

Concept, graphics and coding: cat
Music: raeff
Testing: raeff, Mandle, Stupot, Cassiebsg, selmiak, Cornelius, Moeka, Aika, Kanade


When you have finished playing the game, please share your screenshot with us! It should be located in C:\Users\<your name>\Saved Games\Kanji Gakusei\screenshot.bmp

Hello AGS community!

This is a friendly reminder for all AGS game developers:

Don't forget to add your games to the database until the end of this month!
Only games that were added to the database during 2017 will be eligible for the AGS Awards 2017 that will start with the beginning of next year. It would be a pity to miss out on such a great opportunity :)

Site & Forum Reports / Wiki manual pages out of date
« on: 08 Dec 2017, 14:12 »
Wiki is like 10 years old compared to recent release, it is not even updated to AGS 3.2.1 (last version made by Chris Jones).
(I feel like repeating this for the 10th time in past couple of years, because people keep getting into similar situation :().
Maybe we should mark those wiki pages on the top of the page? We could make a banner that says "This article is outdated and only applies to old versions of AGS"

Iceland sounds amazing, but no Mittens for us this year. We are going to have a baby in September ;-D so I won't do any long travelling this summer.


As it turns out though, we're going to Prague, Vienna and Budapest so that's off the table.
Awesome! Would be great if we could meet in Vienna. Since I'm off from work in July already, I have lots of time. We could also go on a short side trip outside of Vienna, like we did in Kawagoe...

Hello AGS community!

Another year of awesome games will soon come to an end.

So, here is a quick reminder (imagine some cheesy music in the background):


Are you a developer?
Did you make any games with AGS this year?

Wait no more, add them to the AGS database now! It's grand, it's free, it provides a platform to promote your games and makes your games eligible for the AGS Awards 2016.
Yes, you heard correctly - just add your game to the AGS database now and it will be eligible for the most important awards of the AGS community. Wouldn't it be great to see your game in the list of award winning games? No matter if adventure or non-adventure, free or commercial or even just a demo. Every game created with AGS can be added.

Wait no longer and get your free database entry here http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/add/ - now with up to three screenshots included!



Aehm... well, yes, just add it.
Thanks.

Miez and I proudly present the sweetest game of this MAGS:

Toffee Trouble in Creamville




When the mayor leaves town and Toffee is in charge of Creamville, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Get the game here!


Winner of MAGS April 2016 "Natural Disasters".



Update 17.12.2016
There is a new version with German translation and a few fixes.

15
When downloading a game in Chrome where there is a direct zip download behind it (no mediafire hosting etc), there is a warning shown for the download:

xxx is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous.

There is an option to still keep the download, but it is very scary for players. The warning does not show up in Firefox.

Oh du lieber Augustin

The city is plagued by Black Death. Can you, Augustin the bagpiper, give the people some comfort in these hard times?






"Oh du lieber Augustin" ("Oh you dear Augustin") is a popular Viennese folk song that is said to originate from the Great Plague in 1679. This game tells (very loosely) the story of its creation.

Creamy: Gamedesign, art and animation
cat: Gamedesign, writing and coding
raeff: Music and testing
Eric Matyas: Free music track "Hazy Disorientation"


Made for MAGS January 2016

Download here

Update 28.02.2016: The game now features a French translation by Creamy and a German translation by cat. Choose the desired language in the winsetup.exe

Update 08.03.2016: The game was featured in Adventure Gamer's Following Freeware!

Hi!
Not sure if this belongs to beginner or advanced, please move if needed.

I have several music snippets. When I press a play button, I want to have all MIDI files played one after another. I do this with AudioClip.Play for the first and AudioClip.PlayQueued for the rest. This works perfectly fine.

Now I want to have a button to stop the playback. On button click I tried to call Stop() for all AudioChannels in System.AudioChannels. However, this only stops the currently played snipped and automatically starts the next queued one. Is there a possibility to somehow clear the queue?

I managed to stop the playback of all items by playing an empty audio with the same priority when the stop button is clicked.

But is there a better solution than this? Or this reliable enough?

Last weekend we finished playing Life Is Strange (i.e. episode 5). We were 3 people playing on the XBox with a friend operating the controls and making decisions together.

Have you played the game?
How did you like it?
How did you decide?

WARNING, HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD, DON'T READ UNLESS YOU HAVE ALREADY FINISHED THE GAME!

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I think it was a great game. The time-rewind mechanic worked pretty well for most of the game. The puzzles were a mixed bunch with several stupid fetch quests, but the dialog puzzles were great. Also the puzzles that required rewinding after going somewhere or taking an item were often very clever. The voice acting was great and worked well with the facial expressions. I did like the graphic style a lot, I think it fitted the atmosphere.
I also loved that you could explore so much stuff, read random posters and flyers, talk to characters, the pictures at the gallery...

About the decisions:
We sacrificed Chloe. We thought she was annoying throughout the game, so it was an easy decision.
We tried to set up Warren with Brooks, which sadly didn't work.
We saved Kate.

An uncontrollable pest plagues a village and the only one who can help is Cornelius Cat's Pest Control.
Take control of the finger puppets and help to solve the mystery!



Get the game here!

This game was made for OROW 2015 and features
  • Hand-crafted finger puppets and backgrounds
  • Cling film animated water
  • A cute and hillarious story

The resolution of the game is 1280x720. If you encounter any display problems, please run winsetup.exe and choose other setting options.

On a side note: Yeah, feels good to finally release a game again... it's been quite a while.

Hints & Tips / The Knobbly Crook: Chapter I
« on: 29 Jul 2015, 21:06 »
I think I'm almost at the end but now I'm stuck.

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I have fed all creatures except the "Panhandler". I just have my suit and nails left in the inventory. I can't find the board the guy in the bar with the bird skeleton is talking about.
