Its on my mind! I think I have a very miniture idea as well that might just work... :ooh:

I'm in no position to organise anything myself though so I'm just waiting for someone to start demanding deadlines!

That enough of a deadline for you? ;/

:laugh: Eeep! I suppose I could start it today? But wouldn't I have to include links to the main room etc? Hmm I have a lot of spare time to kill until this evening because Woodfish is revising, but...anything I should know in particular to be careful of when I'm making it, in relation to the rest of the game?





P.S. It won't be finished today, but soon? :p

I suppose the main things to be careful about:

* Don't mess with the default font settings or colours.

* Be careful about labelling events so they can be easily stopped when someone is playing one of the other games.

* Use variables that are unique to you, ie.

tangent_door
tangent_cave
tangent_bike


etc

The same for the ALR.


Of course, we really need that wayward daughter of mine to tell us what's happening with the project. 8)

Thank you for your guidance. :) I have made a start...its only likely to be really quite small, but I presume that's okay.

Have you started on yours yet David?

I am still allow ideas to percolate. (i.e. actually doing nothing, and hoping that inspiration strikes!) who knows, could be a winning technique. I'll let you know.

I'm still interested in doing a little game for this if it goes ahead.

Why wait for Adrift 5? Methinks you're getting cold feet, young lady. 8)

Don't be silly.

I do get cold feet, but it's far too hot to have cold anything at the moment.

Plus if I'm going to chicken out of something, I will do it far more dramatically than that, probably get run over or something and have my mum inform you of my death.
