Re: Browser

Hi. And welcome to our little corner of the IF universe. I hope you will enjoy your stay. :yeah: As for your question regarding a browser. It is possible to export your game as an .exe file thus allowing people to play it without having to install the runner. However! Bear in mind that the Adrift .e...

Re: P/o Prune's mini competition

There was some confusion about the starting date, so I thought that the post on April 1st was a mistake. Also, I always look at the first post to see rules, deadlines etc. In the future, I think it is good to always edit the 1st post if something changes such as the deadline. Denk is absolutely rig...

Re: P/o Prune's mini competition

I am still working on mine, but not finished. I wouldn't complain if you added an extra week :whistle: , which perhaps those nearly finished or would like some more time to bug fix/polish their entries in the meantime. I'm ok with it. But what do the other participants think? I have been working on...

Re: Stuck in Axe of Kolt

Over on intfiction.org I see somebody is playing this game online but is looking for help. Check it out here Thanks R2T1, I am now in contact with Stefan, the guy who posted the request. BTW he is blind and he is the third blind player of my games I have been in contact with. Ok, I know I may be ou...

Re: A Return to Positivity

<snip> I just wish things were like they were in the old days. Regular updates, lots of new games and a feeling that it was a cool system to use and not one that seems to have been largely abandoned by its creator. So well said, David. I guess we (Drifters) can't do much about the updates, but we c...

Re: Change location descr. from light to dark?

Honestly I really prefer not to deal with anything based on real life time passage in games like these. It's not that you will have to solve a puzzle before the light goes out. And there's always the option of using the >undo command. See it like you enter a location. You have x seconds to memorize...

Re: Change location descr. from light to dark?

Certainly. Do you mean realtime seconds or just a number of turns? Or perhaps the light should turn off right after the location description has been given? Real time. I want to give the player time to read the location description as it may hold some clues. If you want realtime seconds you should ...

Change location descr. from light to dark?

I wonder if it is possible to change a location property while the player is still at said location? For example. The player enters a lit room and get the room description. In the room is a character (an enemy, for instance) This character turns off the light thus leaving the location in darkness. S...

Re: Other systems?

Well if it was a troll post and not just an innocent question, it was entirely successful and you guys made them really happy now that it's gotten all these reactions and even started an argument. Yep. :wink: Anyways, I've sent an email to Lilith regarding her post (nice and polite :wink: ) So let'...

Re: Other systems?

Are you having a bad day, David? :wink: I think you are a little harsh now, and unfair too for that matter. Lazzah's reply to Lilith's posting, whether you think it's appropriate or not, is legit. Could it have been phrased differently? perhaps, but I'm not the one to judge. I will say that I, mysel...

Re: Other systems?

Although I agree with you to some extend, David, Lilith's post is kind of "strange." No mention that she has tried Adrift and found it inadequate, or difficult or whatever reason she may have to look for another system. Not that she has to come up with an explanation or excuse, personally I would fi...

Random is ok, Lumin, :wink: And like Lazzah, I agree with everything you have written. I have been around for quite a while and into IF since the 80's (just like thee other old geezer here :P ) and I have looked all over the place for a usable IF writing tool. At least until I stumbled over ADRIFT. ...

Re: Other systems?

Hey guys, should we really be pointing Lilith in the direction of other IF systems? As Lumin asks, what is her/his problem with ADRIFT? There is plenty of help available via this forum if needed. I don't see why Lilith has to ask about other systems on this forum anyway, a simple Google search woul...

Re: Other systems?

Hi Lillith
Just off the top of my head I could mention Inform, TADS
But why are you looking for other systems, have you given Adrift a chance?
