Re: Are there Beginner Tutorials by other users?

http://help.adrift.co/ It this what you are using for your help guide(assuming you are using adrift 5)? Because it clearly explains the brackets thing for commands. Also, here is the discord for adrift: https://discord.gg/ATKcMnKY The helpful people on there shall answer any and all questions you h...

Re: Go under or go behind objects?

While the testing for Networked Mind is going on, I'm starting my next project, entitled Final Girl. Just in case you don't know, there is another IF game called "Final Girl" by Hanon Ondricek, who is among the better authors. Of course, nothing prevents you from calling your game that too, though ...

Re: Combined Library Release 2 Demo (beta)

It may not be a big thing, but I would like if the general task "Climb object" was split into two tasks. 1: Climb up object. 2: Climb down object. Like I said, i may be a minor thing, but when you use a specific task to override the general climb object, the command line reads: climb up object no m...

Re: Go under or go behind objects?

You don't need to mess about with properties like that, keep it simple. I have created a quick demo to show how it can be done with a couple of locations, objects, general tasks and specific ones. That's what somebody on discord suggested I do, but with the way the killer is handled, it would make ...

Go under or go behind objects?

While the testing for Networked Mind is going on, I'm starting my next project, entitled Final Girl. In Final Girl, you play a nubile coed on the run from a serial killer is a remote forest. The key hook here is the killer is on your butt from start to finish, in every room except certain safe ones,...

Re: The Networked Mind

Ok I need Beta testers. I'm at an impasse. I could add side stuff and further polish, but I don't feel like doing that if I'm going to have to make major changes to the game. So if you'd like to beta test, PM me. I can send the TAF or the blob, your choice.

Re: Annual IF Comp 2020

We once had a competition for a kids game, but I think it crashed and burned due to the lack of interest on the authors part. In the "old days" we had tons of competitions, but unfortunately during the long wait for Adrift 5 most authors dropped Adrift altogether. So now, apart from the occasional ...

Re: Blorb file not exporting

Does the Blorb file work with the Adrift runner? Be careful exporting your game using the .exe file. In most cases it will trigger a virus warning. Well it does work. interesting, but we still have a problem here, if the Adrift release 36 trigger virus warnings and most runners don't play adrift, h...

Blorb file not exporting

I'm trying to export my game to play it separate from adrift to have "fresh eyes." So I go to export, then click blorb file, then name it NetworkedMind, then try to play it and Gargoyle(an if reader). It says it cannot load the file. I'm also using another IF reader called Wingit, and it says the fi...

Re: The Networked Mind

I completed the first draft of the game, taking about 80 hours in total. :thanks: But the hard work has just begun as the just skeleton has been laid down, meaning the main path is complete and works. Now I have to go through and add the meat: Better writing, more dialog, original task text, and eve...

How to have a chase sequence?

Ok so I'm nearing the end of A Networked Mind, and in this final section, I was you to be completely on your toes, hunted by a guard. Meaning you have a certain a number of turns per room(say 5) before the guard comes in and kills you. How do I do this? I am imagining the following: -A player moveme...

Re: Stereotypes in your games

People are playing Adrift games, maybe not that many (yet) but I hope that more people will begin playing Adrift games when there are games like Skybreak available. That's most of the problem, there aren't that many AAA IF available to play on Adrift as there is on other formats like Inform. I'm in...

Re: Stereotypes in your games

But overall I think you're worrying too much: cheer up, nobody plays Adrift games, not even Adrift authors! I was trolled by 2 kids over a book that sold 3 copies, in total, and subsequently put online for free. The next year, I vent "viral" over a book with a terrible cover within certain online c...
