Quote from: HandsFree on Wed 29/11/2023 23:31:05I meant to post in the 'How to get more participation' thread that I wouldn't mind joining, but can't make a game on my own. And then saw that I wrote just that on page one a few years back...So, since it's been a while that I did any scripting and I like to brush up on that: does anyone like me to help with (or do) the scripting for their game? I may come up with a puzzle or two as well.Thanks
Quote from: Kitty Trouble on Wed 03/01/2024 15:37:50Anyone have anything started for this?

Also, a comment:SpoilerLooks like I'm going to need a hint about the cat food? Seems like I'm going to need something to carry it in, but haven't found anything that works. Unless, of course, there's some other way to deal with the crow? Seems to be a sticky walk path issue, near the bathtub with the body. It's not a game breaker, since scrolling along the bottom brings up the "door" and will allow exiting the room. Everything else seems to work, and how'd you manage to get so much into the game in a month? [close]

Took the picture, but then not much.Also, looks like you can relight the fireplace, get a third pawn, and, apparently, mess up that portion of the puzzle?[close]
Quote from: noblonski on Sat 06/01/2024 19:18:16oooh, crap... haha. yeah, that is possible, i guess. i'll fix that. thanks.after sending the pictureSpoiler check your messages on your phone [close]

Been back to the bathroom several times, and the sticky walk path issue hasn't happened again.SpoilerEdit: Have now played two of the endings. Do seem to have a dead phone in one of the attempts. Not sure why? The two successful playthroughs it has worked fine.Don't seem to be getting the phone to work as it was before?[close]
Quote from: noblonski on Sat 06/01/2024 20:53:23Spoileroh, what's the issue? it doesn't work, right clicking the phone and selecting the first app? the chat might take a second to load though. i couldn't reproduce it on my end.[close]
Quote from: Kitty Trouble on Sat 06/01/2024 22:32:35Can I get a hint about the Spoilercop[close]
Quote from: jwalt on Sat 06/01/2024 21:12:05Quote from: noblonski on Sat 06/01/2024 20:53:23Spoileroh, what's the issue? it doesn't work, right clicking the phone and selecting the first app? the chat might take a second to load though. i couldn't reproduce it on my end.[close]SpoilerTwo endings encountered, so far: returning home and buying replacements, and getting caught in the room with the phones. In the saved game that stopped working, the phone screen comes up, but doesn't display any of the four options. It's just dead. Didn't act like that outside that one game. May not be a real problem? Maybe my batteries are dead. ;-)[close]Edit 4 of 5 possible endings:SpoilerSo, have now played 4 of 5 possible endings, including the "original" one. If that last keypad puzzle is supposed to be working, I note clicking on the ladder up to the final manhole will bypass the puzzle, which I couldn't seem to get to work, anyway. Had the wire cutters and info from the second color chart, but it didn't seem to work the way I thought it should. Think you should be pretty proud of your game! And I liked the music, as well.[close]
Quote from: Shadow1000 on Sun 07/01/2024 06:28:59I want to report a crashSpoilerI put the pawns where I THOUGHT I was supposed to based on the text conversation but nothing happened and I didn't see any way to do anything else, including try again. So I thought I'd check if I can reread the conversation on the phone in case I put the pawns in the wrong place. I didn't see any way to scroll back so I took out the map again (the chessboard was still loaded) and I took the picture again. The game crashed. I'll have to restore from my last save.[close]
Quote from: jwalt on Mon 08/01/2024 01:55:10SpoilerMore stunning graphics from Kastchey! Did bumble into a pretty solid lock up. Task Manager couldn't get me out of it, but I was able to get to the Task Bar and reboot. There were some AGS error message thumbnails displayed above the task bar, but I got no access to actually read them. I was clicking around pretty recklessly, so it may have been my fault. Getting a serious vampire vibe, since the kiddo mentioned "sire." Enjoying it and left me wanting more.[close]
Quote from: Kastchey on Mon 08/01/2024 00:26:41Hues of the HauntA visual novel (demo)Download v.0.5 hereFollowing a car accident, a young woman wakes up in a small town, picturesque but strangely silent and still. It turns out that leaving the place may not be so easy...A game made in the style of the Japanese visual novels, a genre that became popular in the late 90s. I had a lot of fun coding the layout!I think I have squished most bugs, but had no testers so do save often.Music on/off and sound on/off buttons don't do anything as there's no music or sound. Single slot save/restore. You can switch between slow and fast skipping style by clicking the bottom left button in the settings GUI (top left corner). Slow skipping is recommended if you have tendency to accidentally double click. Fast skipping is ideal when replaying the game.Download v.0.5 here
Quote from: Kastchey on Mon 08/01/2024 11:17:37Thanks for trying the game, I'm glad you liked it!As for the error, uh-oh. I was fairly certain the GUI was immune to obsessive clicking You don't happen to recall where, more or less, you could have clicked or what location you were at? No worries if not, I'll try to track it down.

Quote from: Kitty Trouble on Mon 08/01/2024 16:58:29Also, just curious, are you planning to make a full version of the game?
Quote from: noblonski on Mon 08/01/2024 14:47:18this looks super impressive. i'll need a few days without any ags related things and will play all other contestant's games next weekend. good luck everyone
Quote from: jwalt on Mon 08/01/2024 18:13:38I can verify that that also freezes my game, but in a controlled fashion. Something about walktobtn4. If you need it, I can capture the error message. My initial crash occurred in full screen mode. This time I was playing in windowed.

Quote from: jwalt on Wed 10/01/2024 14:42:31Voted.SpoilerHard to compare a full game with a demo. In the end, I went with Noblonski. Nothing wrong with Katschey's game, and the graphics were... WOW. Would look forward to Katschey's complete game. [close]
Quote from: Kastchey on Wed 10/01/2024 19:08:07Stu, I think Dead Phones links to the screenshot instead of the game in your post.

Quote from: Shadow1000 on Thu 18/01/2024 05:21:41I voted for SpoilerDead Phones. To me, this game is top-notch in every aspect. Great story, graphics, music, I loved the overall atmosphere and great puzzles. [close]
Quote from: Kastchey on Sun 21/01/2024 21:30:53I have played both co-entries. My thoughts:Not My RON by jwalt:SpoilerWow, that was deeper than I expected! I don't know if that was fully intentional, but the clash between Josh's blissful ignorance and Davy's depressing revelation produced a really interesting (and gloomy) narrative twist.[close]
Quote from: heltenjon on Sun 21/01/2024 17:26:58SpoilerVery impressive. The layout and graphics are professional and set the mood. I like how the windows all seem to immediately tell their purpose, and the game design truly sells this instantly. The intro is cool and unexpected, and the story is well written, setting the spooky mood. I have all sorts of theories about this small town now. The only real downside (apart from no sound yet) would be those inherent in the VN genre. I'm looking for triggers to the next part of the story, not really puzzles to solve.[close]I voted for: SpoilerDead Phones. Even though the writing in Hues of the Haunt is spectacular, I like my puzzles.[close]
Quote from: Kastchey on Wed 24/01/2024 11:50:38Congratulations, noblonski! A well deserved win
