Here it is, The Ugly Files, but with no sound because the mp3 I used first were a bit large for downloading just a simple game like mine. Anyway, Ill put a sound pack later on my site


Download it from:

The game looks good so far, but there is a bug causing the Save/Load function not to work.

I got a fair way into it, saved a few times and they didn't appear when i tried to load.

There is agssave.001 in the folder but it doesn't appear when you try to load a game. That is also after saving about 4 times, there should be 4 files but there is only 1.

I don't know what you have done

Yep the prob is that you have compiled your game with AGS v2.53beta 2.
When you want to share a game, compile it with a stable version (v2.52 for the moment)

Oh and I haven't finished it yet because of the same problem than Timosity, but I enjoyed what I have played yet, even if there's some part a bit crude... But well, that's a part of the atmosphere.

I've just started playing it - it feels quite good, especially with funny descriptions for all interactions, but I'll post further comments when I finish it.
Miguel, parabens!!!! Para qd o proximo jogo?

*Doh* Gotcha!

But, do all detective games need to begin at the detective's office? I'm getting so used to doing the pick up some stuff from desk see file cabinet and read newspaper routine..

No offense, but it's buggy.  Alot of places you can't get out of.

Sometimes you have to double-click I suppose...

But the savegame bug is annoying, and, Miguel,  I think there's also a bug here...

 At the town square, when I found Larry Vales wallet and money, the inventory isn't updated...


Anyway, I like it... Apart for the bugs (if the town square thing is a bug), it's a good first time effort...

not taken Quikstrike, but in most of the rooms you have to chose interact then click at the exit part of the screen, the problem is that it displays a message when you cross the cursor over those areas, so you have to left click to erase the message and click again to execute the action. Sorry for that but it is my first game.
