Opensource Discworld-like Interface System 1.1
« on: 04 Sep 2003, 00:33 »
I don't know if this belongs here, but i just finished a new version of my interaction system. This looks much closer to the discworld one. Some new stuff added in this version:

- Left/right/double click world interaction optimized (now identical to DW)
- Left/right/double click inventory interaction optimized (now identical to DW)
- Dragging inventory optimized (that was hard!)
- on_event ADD_INVENTORY script added: new items are automatically set active like in DW
- Dialog system added (to be optimized: it's Lucas-style)
- Mouse cursor disappears while talking/animating just like in DW
- Events are now non-blocking: player can stop the interacion to perform another one even if  the character is already walking to the hotspot, just like in DW and Lucas adventures
- Characters interactions are handled non-standard style: player charatcer doesn't
  automatically walk to characters before start interaction
- Random messages on look player character, just like in DW

Hope this is helpful, I think this (the discworld one) is one of the most user-friendly and easy-to-learn interfaces ever made.
I'm pretty proud of the "non blocking" action stuff because gives the feel of more control on the character. And I'm proud of the advanced dragging too, because of my lacks in mathematic/scripting skills; this is a great achievement for me (just look at the code to see why :).

The site is not about the ODIS, it's just the only webspace I own, so I used it to host the file. There is no site about the ODIS, all the info you can get is in the readme file in the zip.
BTW the site is about an italian RPG project (an ultima online shard).

is there any problem with the link? I can download it without problems. If it doesn't work for you just let me know

Wow.  Great work.  It really is an easy interface to grasp.  If it's easy to code for as wel, I may have to steal it.  MWA-HA-HA!  MWA-HA-HA-HA!

Chicken, it seems your e-mail address doesn't work (or the 700kb file is too big), because the e-mail came back with an errore message. My uin is 13203225, contact me so I can send you the file via icq.

Thanks Crabe! steal what you want, it's opensource! (maybe you can credit me somewhere in the game!)

When I try to download it, it can only save it as .zip.html, but still can't download it. Same when I delete the .html extension.
Regular click will get me to the spanish or italian AltaVista Site.
I'm really interested in this one, so it would be awesome if I could get it somehow.
Thanks

If your having trouble downloading try entering the first part of the url to get to his main site.  Then add ODIS1.1.zip to the URL.  That worked for me.

Hey this is really neat! I've always liked the interface to Discworld, & I'm glad to see other people liked it too.  I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but you can bet I will in a few minutes. :)

Moresco, if you're going to keep ODIS on your repository would be cool, so all those problem with my host will be override! just tell so I can change the link in the first post.

ps: i think the link in your sign is incorrect, I had to add a "/" to the end of the address in the browser to make it work

Hey Stryker, I have the file on my system but haven't added it into the Repository just yet.  I will though, and then you can change the link soon as I get it setup.

Also, you were right! My signature link is incomplete, I'll fix it. :) Thanks a ton!

Update:
Stryker, the link on my server is
