The Rumpus Room / Re: What's on TV?

Next clue..

Good point. I think out best bet is to narrow it down as much as possible, and define it as the use of a bitmap image, as that's the kind I'll be instructing about.

You can talk only about bitmap graphics if you want, but a background is a background whether it's made with bitmaps or not (and some bitmap-style backgrounds are made with tilesets and some "vector graphic" tricks, BTW).

The limitation in the early days was storage and memory: even in a low resolution like 160x100, a full-screen 16-color bitmap image takes up 8 kB – and the Atari 2600 originally only had 4 kB of storage on each cartridge. Only by the mid 80s do bitmap graphics for game backgrounds start to make sense over just storing the drawing instructions.

Incidentally, the Magnavox Odyssey (first video game console) used printed plastic sheets that you stuck onto your TV screen to provide "backgrounds" (or foregrounds, rather) to the games, since its graphical rendering capability was limited to three dots and a vertical line.

Haha no. The Facebook logo is not there in the real movie. The real movie includes zero laughs.

No, I don't think the movies need to link. My movie links in no way to what was posted before I don't think.

I'm not sure if movies need to be in English. The movie I posted isn't in English. :(

No, not pillow book.
I'm a paperboy. It is like a mailman. But I'm only mail morning papers and magazines.

But here is a just a little bit longer demo of my game. But as you can see there is still errors I need to fix.
But you can see I add some more funny things in this game just for fun.

Beginners' Technical Questions / Graphical Issue with VerbCoin GUI
« Last Post by null on Today at 18:35 »
Hello, all. I'm new to AGS and I'm not sure if this is where this goes, but I've searched around and can't seem to find any information on this issue, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a game set up with custom images for a verbcoin. In-game when you click to open the verbcoin and mouse over the Look button, a phantom image appears behind it. I did assign a mouse-over image to the Look button and that works fine, but another phantom image also appears behind it when the Look Button is moused over.

Again, any help with this would be appreciated.
I am happy "if" I could help.
Have a nice work day(whatever your job is)!
