Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I think it is the last one; when I run it with no arguments, it displays:

Code: Select all

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Hi. Not sure if we missed this reference (for the first post: http://mag.mo5.com/actu/127023/blakes-7-un-point-click-dapres-une-serie-tv-sur-oric/) Dbug, any chance of a new FloppyBuilder which corrects the CRC thingy? Oh, and I think Fabrice Frances noticed the generated interleave was not the one ...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I am not sure how this will be organized, and I also have little experience with repositories, but you are updating the main trunk with your on going modifications. I don't know if that is the way to go, but be sure the code still compiles properly. I may update things soon and would like to avoid e...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I'd have to check, because I think I am not using al the symbols in my font. Certainly I use Spanish accents and there are some extra chars which could be unused in the final game, but not all the usual characters are there.

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

The sentence length is indeed a problem. Remember you have to figure out how to make each sentence less than 39 chars and, in addition, keep the number of sentences constant, as they are referred by their entry number. I still think the first thing would be deciding the extra characters that are nee...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

That is excellent news! Unfortunately it is not as easy as just 'translate text'. I'll have to tweak my compiler to support any extra characters (such as ç and map them to the game charset, probably creating new symbols. It would be a good start trying to figure out which symbols will be needed and ...

Re: Merging video output?

You are completely mad! But this looks very interesting...

I have nothing to suggest, unfortunately, but will wait for any advance with a lot of anticipation!

Re: Universal tracker

Hi Targhan! Thanks for popping up here and for your fantastic tracker. I once had a look a Vortex too, as Dbug did, but never continued with the project. These trackers (yours looks incredible!) produce really good music, but I always found impossible to spend >10 K for the music and player only, an...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I replayed version 1.1 directly from the episode 1 beginning until the end of episode three with the same or even more pleasure. No bug to report. I will also play a third time, in order to write down, for posterity, all the actions that must be done, when and where they must be done to win. Thus, ...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Thanks Dom! And congratulations for finishing the game !

@jede...that is a beta version you are showing. It does not display the version number and 'loading game data' message, and somewhat the continue from saved game is not working...

Could you try the final 1.1 version?
