I need some info on how to convert a adrift story to the newer version since my 3.9 can't run with the 4.0 ver. Anyone able to help. I greatly appreciate it.

Hi Irish, I'm not sure, hang on a bit.

Just open it up with the Adrift 4 Generator and then save it. It'll be converted to 4.

Of course, if it's over the size limit of the unregistered version of 4, you'll need to register before you can save it.

No, I think Campbell put in a specific check so that the unregistered version can even convert games above the size limit.

It couldn't at one time. At least I'm sure that was the case. I think someone mentioned it and I tested it out just to see.

Sorry, should be better now.

NOTE: When Campbell upgraded the forum it moved from www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/iB3 to www.adrift.org.uk/cgi/iB The answer if you do find problems with links within the forum is to delete the 3 after iB in the url.

The demo link works but nothing else seems to.

In any url, replace the iB with f,

e.g. http://www.adrift.org.uk/cgi....;t=3599

becomes

http://www.adrift.org.uk/cgi....;t=3599

(Campbell moved the forum in an attempt to limit spamming)
