Tempus Fugit
« on: 08 Mar 2007, 13:41 »
This is my second AGS Game and it was quite challenging.  It was originally intended for a MAGS but I couldn't finish it in time. I used Poser6 to create the characters which was another big challenge.  Screenshots were posted in another forum... but you can see them here also.  A few of you said you might be interested in doing a little beta testing.  I hope you're still up for it.

Nice graphics, very pretty.

It is very difficult to walk to places, you have to be in the right spot to cross over - especially to the tree.
I got 2 coins now by walking back and I  can not use a coin as suggested in the walkthrough; that thing just does not take it.
So I am stuck. The end for me today :(

You didn't have to PM me about your release, I check the completed games forum you know! That's almost spam!

But anyway, I have too many games on my plate right now to play this.. or any AGS games right now! Sorry! It will be on my list of games to get round to!

I think that the walkthrough is slightly wrong
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
At one point the walkthrough tells the player to:
'push the WMW again
push the 'W' then 'M' then the next 'W'
press the Woman to the left figure
press the Man figure
press the Woman to the right figure
pick up the starpass pieces'
When I do this nothing happens, no starpass :(

You have to go to the 'stars' at least once before this becomes available.

Sorry for the repost, I'm having problem with quotes.
In addition to theatrx comments, you need to:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
after clicking on WMW, Click to bottom right of feet of each status

The walkthrough isn't wrong.

It is a windows game.

Perhaps, by playing around with setting might help by running "winsetup.exe"

My game's settings are as follows:
Graphics Settings
640x480
Graphics Filter: none
Force Alterna letterbox resolution: checked
Smooth Scsaled sprites: Checked

Sound options
Digital Sound: Default DirectSound Device
Midi music: Default MCI Music Device

I hope this helps

You do know that the WMW puzzle makes no sense and is impossible to solve without the walkthrough thus making it a very very very very very bad game-stopping puzzle, don't you?

Sorry.  I've been fixing stuff that the beta testers have been suggesting. That was one of them.

ps Actually, it doesn't stop the game it just makes it harder to get around as fast.

Nevertheless, it's a puzzle that doesn't make sense. And by "game-stopping" I mean that it made me stop playing.

EDIT - You know what else is game-stopping? Is looking at the moongrass, wanting to TAKE the moongrass, finding that wields no response, leave the moongrass, get stuck, and then look at the walkthrough and find you're SUPPOSED to take moongrass, then around around back to the moongrass and do a pixel-hunt for the spot you can interacti with.

Do anyone have "Tempus fugit" game files? Cannot find game files in all archives.

Arj0n might have it if you PM him.. I think he has a personal archive of ancient AGS games but I could be wrong.

Pretty sure he won't, as it's on my missing games list: https://legacy.agsarchives.com/missing.html and he's already helped recover many of the ones that were on there.

That's strange. This game have a page on legacy.agsarchives, but gamefile is not there. Another games of Stephen Storc are not missing, and reason of missins "Tempus fugit" is really mystic.

I don't know thread being dug out but I remember that game from years. That creator hasn't been here since 16 Feb 2009, it no wonder as to why this game can't be found. I think this need being locked.

I recall testing his games back then! In fact, he also mentioned he out of game development by PM years ago.
I reported this to that global moderator to lock this until creator comes back.
