Re: EctoComp 2012

I put the adrift ectocomp entries on my own webspace so I could play them. In case anyone is in the same boat as me (mac only) or wants to play the Adrift Ectocomp entries online anyway, here are the addresses. So these won't be up here forever, but will certainly be up for the duration of the comp ...

Re: EctoComp 2012

Are the Adrift games in Adrift 5? I ask because I've been unable to run either of them on my mac. I tried opening the .taf files in Spatterlight (old but usually works for Adrift 4 games) and in Gargoyle (up to date, presumably with Adrift 4). Both said "Glk SCARE Error - Unable to load an Adrift ga...

Re: EctoComp 2012

I'm going to try to enter this comp. I'll be using Inform since that's what I know. I can't promise a result because I'll have to fight every perfectionist instinct I have to produce a speed IF. I rarely play speed IFs because their roughness usually bugs me too much. But for the record, I've liked ...

Anybody got The Cellar?

I'm playing my way through everything on IFDB that's tagged 'horror' and isn't either incomplete or speed IF. I got to The Cellar -- http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=15kjdyb4jkw4syzg -- and as is often the case with naughty Adrift games, the download link doesn't work and there's no copy in IF archi...

Re: IFComp 2011

For us ADRIFT authors, online play is obviously restricted to using the SCARE interface (well, those of us still using v4, that is). I've got my game working pretty well with SCARE, but I'm not sure I'd like the default method of play to be Online. What have other ADRIFT IFComp authors done in the ...

Re: ADRIFT audience

Why don't more ADRIFT people submit their games to ifdb when they're done? Though I realise I should, and have indeed been meaning to do so, I've been a little reticent to upload some of my games to IFDB for a few reasons. First and foremost, I'm self-conscious about uploading a total of 6 unlisted...

Re: ADRIFT audience

If you want an outsiderish perspective (mine) - Why don't more ADRIFT people submit their games to ifdb when they're done? Look at it this way - to find out if someone wrote a new ADRIFT game, I have to visit this forum and search for links or competitions. I'm already cruelling on speed competition...

Re: IFComp 2011

The IFComp 2011 site is now up, so it gives you all the info and deadlines:

http://ifcomp.org/

I would definitely like to see 1+ Adrift games in there. I just like to see games from a variety of sources.

Hi everyone. I've never used Adrift per se but I was pinged about this competition by Duncan, who saw my reviews of The Forest House games at ifdb. So I'm glad he got me involved. (I'm the voter 'Wade') I have to say I found playing and judging the Ectocomp games more challenging than doing the sam...
