Re: A Return to Positivity

The biggest negative point for me has always been the--in 2021, just a LITTLE unreasonable--hurdles that new players are expected to clear before actually playing, and the seeming disinterest in ever fixing them. This is such an important issue if we want Adrift to grow. Also, I've been to a number...

Re: A Return to Positivity

I've written an Inform game that did very well in an IFComp and could probably do it again. But, I found it such a chore and it took years to do all the coding - I still love Adrift. It is easy to just go on with creating the game. Most of my experience is with good old V4, I learned how to break it...

Quest is pretty simple to use. And of course, Adrift is pretty good.

I'll add them to Delron when I get a minute. They will eventually appear in search then.

Re: How do you kill a mummy ( the Egyptian kind, mind you 😉 )

@ Lazzah: How about a swimming pool in the garden or basement of the haunted house? You could also weigh the mummy down with chains or something heavy? A swimming pool wouldn't fit into the scenario. The house has been abandoned for, maybe a hundred years, because of the terrible things that has / ...

Only one rule. Fire is not an option.

Re: Pathway to Destruction

I see it was uploaded in December, is this an updated version or just a fresh download free of the rest of the comp games? The original was written in V4, I wanted to see if it could be played online so I made a basic V5 version (just a V4 game saved as V5). It was a test really. Everything seems t...

Re: It's Not Compatible

It's the forced updates that keep breaking everything that makes Win 10 suck. Microsoft screwed up when they made this one now. I have lost all faith in that company of sheer fools. Hasn't been my experience of Windows 10, I'm running on a couple of laptops which are over 10 years old. Not had any ...

I tried to play JaFT online and had no problem doing so.
I've found out what the online runner didn't like. The game was prompting for gender. Thanks.

Re: Count of all ADRIFT games todate

2013-2015 sure were dark times... We didn't see than many in more recent years either, although the ones that do get completed are getting more substantial and polished. e: just realized this topic was a month old, whoops.

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

I did go through a phase of back filling the old Adrift catalogue on there once. I'm an OCD process man, so I like lists to be right. :D I'll think about starting again in the new year. Not all the old games are rubbish, some gems amongst them. That would be great, Rotter,. I don't envy you that ta...
