Ok everyone. im proud to announce that the first date quest 2 demo is complete!!! date quest 2 demo v1.0 can be downloaded at my site http://joekool224.tripod.com|
it has bugs and the graphics suck at parts, but dont worry, everything will be improved in the final release.
i cant talk much cause i have an early hockey game tommorow and i have to go to bed now.
also, check out the about menu, your in it!!! (yes you reading this right now.)
I loved the angry chef.. I thought that was pretty funny. Good luck and I hope you manage to finish it.|
One thing I noticed is the way you defined your commands. In your dictionary, you defined all your words as "examine girl" or "look girl" but don't define the words "examine" and "girl" separately.
You can actually provide more than one word to the said command. so instead of if (said("examine girl")) you can use if (said("examine", "girl")) and the interpreter will match all the different examine words and all the different girl words.
You don't have to write all the different variations of the same sentence because the interpreter will check for you. Hope that helps.

Don't feel sorry but you put one of naturette 2 music (sound.007) in your game (sound.001).
But don't worry about this music. This music was not mine anyway.
I made Sound.014 and sound.010 in Naturette 2 from scratch. If you want to use theres songs in your final version, don't forget to ask me permission first.
Remember. Freeware is not domain public. You can't use
some codes without the author's permission.
Thanks in advance.
robin i did not take that from naturette 2. i havent even played that game. i had that song on my pc as a .mid file and i converted it. i will ask anyone for permission. i asked eigen if i could use the code for that music player, and he said yes.|
thanks nick. i was trying to add humor. but did you find him twice? he's in the demo 2 times.
|Joey||oh chris, i wasnt sure if you wanted me to add it to your site since its one of the many demos. i will though.|
looking good so far. I found the chef twice ;D... seems to have a lousy temper...
It might be useful if you could add a few more "look" commands to the game. When you mention an item in a general "look" command, it gives the game more depth if you can also look at it specifically (for example the sign outside the appartement, or the desks). Even if they aren't important for the game, they make the player feel he has more "impact" on the game. If you could add a little more vocabulary that would also be good (for example get/take/pick up/acquire etc).
Also, but this is a very minor thing, try to draw the ego after he is repositioned in some rooms. Then he doesn't seem to skip places suddenly.
Otherwise it's looking good. Keep it up!
|Joey||thank you. now that i have time to post i have to tell everyone this. last night, i was rushing through everything to finish up the demo. i did, but i think i could have done a little more work on it. i dont know. im happy though that the demo is out.|
Right. I found this music on the net too and convert it
for my game.
|AGI1122||There is an demo option for the games, so I would have to say yes I want the demo's as well. ;)|
|Joey||ok. i just wasnt sure.|
Well...the start was okay, except for that spider sun^^;The chef really was funny(well, everything is funny from my view)but I think the game has a lack of words. It doesn't understand anything I write and that makes me angry...You should put up more things to look and so one and so one...One thing I would also change is using graphics, mainly person views and backgrounds, from other games. However, that's just my opinion but I think it is not nice to take graphics from other games.
Good luck with the game anyway^^
By the way...our game is going to be late(again).My friend hasn't been working at all with the graphics and we're planning to start all over. I hope we'll be able to show a demo in the winter.
|jelleghys||That will be the summer for Mr. T and some other people...|
Played it. It's quite humorous (like that chef ;D ), but I don't like to see graphics that I've seen in other games as well. Try to make all the pictures instead of ripping them from other games. That really boosts the quality of a game.|
Anyway, don't go slacking, 'cause we'd miss out on some great jokes ;)
ok thank you for bringing up the pics from other games. the only one i can think of i used, was the one from pq. the reason i put that in, was because dq2 is supposed to continue from dq1. in dq1, that was your house, so i just used that to continue. but like i said, i used pics from dq1 also, just to set the mood that you are continueing from where you left off, and are in the same area from the previous game.|
i will add more commands. thank you.
btw: did anyone get 42 points?
|Joey||btw: do u guys really think it was funny? i thought the butcher would be, but i dont think anything else would be. oh wait, yes, a few more things maybe. but you do think its humores? im funny at school, in dq2 (i think), but not on the board. :-|
Hehe great demo. Is there a way to "interact" with the girl on the roof? I haven't got the heart to look at it in AGI Studio. :) |
|Joey||try talking to her, that will give you a hint of what to do next.|
