Re: How to customise ..character doesnt appear to understand

You can use alternate restrictions with text overrides so you should be able to use restrictions like "The player character must be in conversation with Arya" to change the output. (I'm not on windows at the moment so I can't check it works).

Re: Card Games and Dice Games

You will need at least one task for each of the possible outcomes, then execute them from the actions of the main task. The Yahtzee would be tested first, setting a flag variable when a task passes so that the lower-scoring tasks can be aborted by a restriction to prevent multiple results. Failing r...

Re: Card Games and Dice Games

For a dice game you just need to have a variable for each die and use the rand(1,6) function to set each one for each turn. Then you just need to call a series of tasks that determine what the outcome of the roll is. A full simulation of a card game is much more complex but can be done. You would ne...

Re: How's the apocalypse treating you all?

There have only been 170 cases in South Australia so far, and only 1 in the part of the Adelaide hills that I live in. The borders between the states have just been closed and all the restaurants and cafes have been restricted to takeaway only. The only places that people are allowed to gather in nu...

Re: Dealing with libraries

1. If you manually edit the library .amf file with a text editor you must remember to update the "<LastUpdated>" date and time of each item altered so that ADRIFT knows that it needs to be updated. 2. The <LastUpdated> datetime at the start of the library must also be later than the one of the file ...

Re: Updated StandardLibrary

I have tested all my games on ADRIFT v.36 with saabie's updated Standard Library loaded. Of my 8 released games and one WIP, all but three load and run OK, a couple with some modifications to a few tasks as in previous messages. The three that do not load and run are THE AXE OF KOLT, DIE FEUERFAUST...

Re: Updated StandardLibrary

Do you want me to put your library into the main distribution saabie? I'm back working on it now. I'll let you know when its ready. In the task "Put objects on others" look at the very last restriction "Property'...and the surface can hold...". Open the restriction and look at the restriction messa...

Re: Newly created tasks don't show up in the task-list.

sometimes is when creating a new task it goes into a different folder than intended and if you have a lot of folders you have to hunt for it. But its usually in the last folder you clicked on. There is a "search" function in ADRIFT to help with finding lost items. Click "Find" on the home toolbar, ...

Re: Bug With Sitting On An Object In Location Group

An object in a location group is really only meant as scenery or doorways between locations. Getting onto such an object is undefined behavior, so weird things happening should be expected. What do you want to happen when you get on such an object? You could add an enhancement request that describes...

Re: Adrift Annual Award

With a small number of voters it is more important for the voters to be consistent in what they mean by a certain score, so there should be some guidance that they can follow. It is also easier for people to understand a "star" rating where you award 0 to 5 stars, but which is still a 0 to 10 score ...
