Those look great Jim!
Honestly the more I look at the db palettes the less they convince me.

I decided to give it a try to making the icons flat and use the surplus of palette colours to make more states: regular | mouse over | down | disabled.-

Was the smoke from a smoke bomb?

After the smoke clears several bodies are found to have been shot multiple times.

Were they normal bullets? (probably hollow-point)
Was any of the bodies dead?
Were the bodies human?
Were the people gathered together before they were shot?*
Did the smoke come from the device used to shoot the bodies?*
Were the bodies shot by a gun?

Modules & Plugins / Re: PLUGIN: Snow/Rain 3.0.0-ALPHA-2
« Last Post by Scorpiorus on Today at 19:59 »
The plugin basically starts from the engine API instance and browses through engine internals, like objects' vtables and code, to try and find all the required functions and data needed to perform drawing.
It can stand minor code changes or EXE-image re-basing (like ASLR - Address Space Layout Randomization) to a certain degree but of course will eventually fail as more and more code changes are made.
Again, its main purpose was to support previous set of AGS versions so that I wouldn't have to hardcode it for every single version of the engine that has been released.
My original idea was to only unlock plugin support for each new AGS version after I've thoroughly tested that plugin works with it correctly, and use standard AGS engine API Blit-family functions as a fallback (meaning nothing will actually be drawn until it's fixed).

So, while technically it is possible to keep the plugin working with even newer versions of AGS and still using such tricks, I'd better switch to something officially supported as soon as possible, and I'm really glad you are considering fixing Blit functions for 3.4.1 -- and to be honest that's what I was hopping for, since, yeah, changing graphic modes at run-time is a significant change and I'm sharing your concerns regarding the need to notify plugins somehow (as they may have their own resources allocated separately from the AGS graphics lists/caches, etc).


Oh, and I always wanted to say that before...

Crimson Wizard, I'd like to thank you for all the hard work, time and effort you dedicate to support AGS Community! And of course all other AGS developers contributing to it to keep AGS a wonderful game creation system! You've been doing a great work! Thanks!

General Discussion / AGS on Retropie / Theora/Music problem
« Last Post by vdeG on Today at 19:02 »
Hi !

  I've installed AGS emulator with Retropie (4.2) and installed King's Quest 3 Redux on my Raspberry Pi.
  I followed the following after the installation: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/Adventure-Game-Studio
  I installed the GUS patches as indicated (https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/blob/master/debian/README.md)
  When I load the game a got an error that it is unable to run the theora video AGDI.OGV in the intro but it doesnt crash the game.
  In the game, I cannot hear any speech and some music does not play (some does..) ..

  Is there someone using the AGS emulator on a raspberry pi and has been successful at viewing the Theora video/speechs?
  Am I missing any audio/video configuration?
  When I launch the game, there is no errors in the logs (It tells my that the audio file + speech file has been initialized)
  I can see in the logs that the digital driver = 'ALSA' / The midi driver = 'DIGI' (I don't know if it is good..)
  (My installation has been done on a fresh retropie image..)

Thanks!

I'd like to repeat how grateful I am towards Crimson Wizard for his improvements to AGS. I'm sorry this has got so stressful for you. You've really helped me out.

BUT, I think this thread (and the others like it) demonstrate that a community-run, vote-for-the-feature you want system is unlikely to work.

I'm all for raising funds to support AGS, but without leadership and a plan for the future, how will that work? How much money will people be prepared to give with no understanding of what it will be spent on? Why should the entire community get to vote, when a smaller proportion is providing the funds? What if the most popular features are the least affordable? What if we can't agree what to do? Bad feeling and anger would build up quickly - even more quickly than they have in this discussion.

As I'm sure I said last time this came up, I don't think it helps for us to argue over our vision of AGS in the future, or who we think ought to take charge. I think it would make more sense for us to offer to help support AGS in whatever way we can.

When (and if) the time comes, I would be glad to help with raising funds and PR/copywriting in support of the project.

Breath taking!

I'm though unsure if this is paradise or a jail...  (laugh)
