Re: Some things

Sure thing, I just wasn't sure if they'd been requested already. I'll go add them. :)

Some things

I had another look at V5 this week, and I'm glad to see it's looking a lot better since whenever it was I last opened it up! There are some things I'd particularly like to see added. I don't know if they've been requested or not (I checked, but may have simply missed something), so thought I'd make ...

Re:

@Alsnpk: I was intrigued when I first saw the idea of Race Tactics. Is it too much of a spoiler to give us a sense of what gameplay will actually involve? Hey! You asked this way back in February , but I'll give you an answer now that I've seen the question! It's not a problem of spoilers, it's jus...

Hmmm. I'd just vote yes because I agree with the sentiment, but then I realized that, depending on the particular awards, I have no idea if I'd be able to decide who/what to vote for or not...

Yep. It can pull it off, but more like a series of snapshots than a fluid scene. Oh, and watch the length if you do try it... If it occupies too many lines, it won't display right, and people might even have the prompt to press a key to continue between each bit when you want it to be automatic. I ...

The game recommends I use Arial 12 and have the ADRIFT Runner in full screen mode – both of which I did and yet I still had the display hanging off the bottom of the screen. Clearly the writer had a bigger screen than me. The display also seemed messed up at times with parts of the rocket either di...

Also, should we not be using the reviews part of the forum to post reviews anymore, or what should we do about that? There seem to be more reviews posted in the forum than on the adventure page. We could transfer them all, but I mean for the future...

Can we get the name of the person who wrote the review, too, in case they didn't sign it? Well, I can only pull out what information is on the database. So probably not. :oh-no: Well I just mean if the name does show up on the "Adventure Reviews" section... Basically, who posted it. Shouldn't that ...

Ok, I've now added an RSS feed for the reviews. Hopefully this should make them more visible going forwards. Can we get the name of the person who wrote the review, too, in case they didn't sign it? Perhaps having the option of Adrift checking for updates and having the usual support stuff in the h...

Ah, here we go: http://www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/f/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=6795 and http://www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/f/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=6874 I think with the "recommended" option in the first thread, there could just be a button to click to recommend a game once or remove your recommendation. ...

I'm trying to find where it was discussed before... Because I'm pretty sure it was discussed in the forum before... I'm just not sure where.

I didn't vote in the competition this time... I wanted to, and was going to... But somehow I never came up with good enough time for it where I felt I would actually be doing the games justice if I tried (and reviewed/rated) them right then. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist or something, but I...

Hmm. I just remember getting errors if I didn't run ADRIFT as administrator (actually right clicking on it like Duncan said) the very first time I tried running it. Doing it after that didn't help matters. I dunno if you started with that or not, though, so that may or may not help.

Well, I've noticed that KF's method of scoring competition games is to count every point a game receives per vote as adding up toward its total score and seeing which one wins that way, as opposed to adding up the different votes and averaging the scores to see who'll get the highest average. So, i...
