Hi Kweepa. "Ags3d.dll", according to an error screen that appears when I open the "game". Even worse, I can only open it with AGS 2.7. Maybe you can direct me to a different download link, which works?

EDIT: Looking around, I found it inside the compiled folder. Maybe it goes somewhere else? Still, I'd like to use it with modern AGS. BTW, the demo game is great. I wish I can make it work.

Unfortunately I can't find a version that works with 3.x, although I thought I updated it at one point.

In AGS 3.4.0 and later it needs to go to Compiled/Windows, where game's exe file is built. Does this mean that plugins are not copied correctly with the latest versions of AGS?

Hmm, wait, how do you use the plugin at all? Did you copy it to the AGS Editor's folder first before building the game?

exit();
the compiler reports an error
too few parameters for exit to function but when I use
exit(0);
it works fine

exit(0): successful program termination
exit(1): (usually) unsuccessful termination

I installed BASS Midi driver and Arachno sf. In my MIDI tool I can now select it and listen to the MIDI. The sound of one of the rather obscure instruments used sounds terrible now, but ok, at least I can run it.

However, I cannot get MIDI to run for AGS games. I don't get the error message anymore, but I also don't have audio (mp3 sfx work fine).
VLC and Windows Media Player also cannot run it.
The weirdest thing so far is: Suddenly Irfan View can play it, but it sounds like the original Windows Midi, not the Arachno. Did Irfan View find the windows synth? I'm about to give up and reinstall windows...

amit14, frankly, this is a kind of question that is normally answered by reading a book.

Each function has a number of parameters that it may require. Exit() function has 1 parameter. If you don't pass one in, it won't work.
If you need to know information on particular function, what they do, what their parameters mean, there are tonns of documentation about C and C++ library functions online. For example this: http://en.cppreference.com/w/c/program/exit

Also, I meant to mention this earlier, although this is only my opinion, but if you are just beginning to study programming, C and C++ are not the languages I'd recommend to start with. They are far not the easiest ones and contain features that are found nowhere in many other modern languages, such as direct operations on computer memory for example, that may be quite confusing (and even dangerous in some ways).
Unless you have a good reason to learn C in particular, I'd recommend to start with something like C#, Python or Javascript instead.

OK, I noticed my midi wasn't working either anymore...
Somehow I couldn't get BASS Midi driver to work again correctly, so uninstalled that and went for VirtualMIDISynth.
So, after loading the soundfont (Arachno) in the VirtualMIDISynth's tab Soundfonts, MIDI was working again.
Also: MIDI runs fine again for AGS games.

Question. I may go to NYC in May. Can someone suggest me a good hotel? My definition of good is a nice bed for me and my girlfriend, has a bathroom in the room, has wifi and either has breakfast or is near a bakery or coffee shop that offers breakfast.

I am going for leisure, will visit museums, and other stuff.

I tried that, didn't work either.

HOWEVER, Windows installed a big update today and now the native Windows MIDI is working again :-D

Question.

I love AGS and would like to somehow thank the creator for making programming accessible even to people with no background in coding. Is there some kind of donation page where I could contribute?

Hello, anybody knows an encrypted chat application that runs independently on windows or linux AND android? I use solely my desktop for chat and my friend chats only via android phone. I found Wickerme and Ring but he couldn't install Wickerme (probably because his android version is lower than required) and Ring just doesn't seem to work.
