The Adventure Game Studio forums are there for all users of AGS to discuss the program, and also for more general community chat. However, as a new user there are some guidelines that you should note:
- There are a few different boards - please make sure to post your question in the right one.
- Please try to make your thread topic as specific as possible, do not use "Help!" or "Question for Chris", for example.
- Look up your problem in the manual, FAQ and Knowledge Base before posting.
- When posting your question, try to go into as much detail as possible about what you are trying to do and what you have already tried. If you are getting an error message, post the ENTIRE message with what you were doing at the time.
- Do not use l33tsp34k - we do not think you're cool, and you'll most likely be mocked rather than helped.
- Finally, these guidelines are here to cut down the volume of posts but don't feel put off - newbies are always welcome and we hope you enjoy it in the AGS community!
