Re: IF / CYOA ?

You're more right than you'd think, David. Anyone remember those CYOA paperbacks? Those were interactive fiction. Were they games? No. What drew me to text adventures wasn't the text so much as the adventure; the difference between Adventure and any CYOA book was that I was inside the twisty little ...

Re: ADRIFT 4.0 source?

While not a perfect analogy, I am beginning to think of ADRIFT 4 and ADRIFT 5 as two different species, though ones with a common ancestor. I don't know if Campbell still has the source for ADRIFT 4, but if that was released then the ADRIFT 4 "species" would have a better chance of survival. Aside ...

Re: Missing Game File

Well! Silly me for not thinking of the ifdb, considering how much time I spend there.. While not a perfect analogy, I am beginning to think of ADRIFT 4 and ADRIFT 5 as two different species, though ones with a common ancestor. I don't know if Campbell still has the source for ADRIFT 4, but if that w...

ADRIFT 4.0 source?

Clearly ADRIFT evolved quite a bit between 4 and 5, with each taking a different design path (or path to design?) not entirely compatible with the other. If Campbell still has the source for ADRIFT 4.0, perhaps we could convince him to release it? I don't know if this has been asked and answered els...

Missing Game File

I was trying to download Cursed and the download link seems to be having an issue or two.

If anyone could locate the "version 2.1" mentioned in the game's description/fix the link, I would greatly appreciate it!

Re: Developer View Shifting!

I'm not familiar with the settings of the ADRIFT generator as the Linux generator is a little out of date. That said, I might be able to help: It seems that the "Folders" window has become either 'stuck' or 'unstuck' such that when the generator redraws the screen, the open tiles get drawn under the...

Re: Getting distracted...

I find I have this problem, though not necessarily the same way. While working on a project, I'll get inspired to work on another, then another, then returning to an old one to find some flaw (disorganized, not to my current standards, etc.) whereupon I place everything old into a folder (named 'Gar...
