Re: P/o Prune's mini competition

Participants have three weeks (that is until Sunday April 25 ... No matter which timezone you are in.) to complete and send their game, blorb or taf file to my official Adrift Email address: Drifting(dot)Prune AT mail(dot)com This is what I've been going by as it was the most recent post on the dea...

Re: Stuck in Axe of Kolt

What are the rest of us doing wrong? :wink: I can't remember what the font and color scheme on that game looked like, but I've seen a few where not having eyes would be a definite benefit... :whistle: Lots of blind players in IF communities though, I've known a few. And they're basically the only g...

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. Well that and the lack of communication. Campbell did ask once about the problems with ...

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.

Re: Change location descr. from light to dark?

Could the location be dark to begin with, but a task upon entry just gives them the description of the lit room followed by the other character making his appearance and turning it off? Basically just a cut scene that plays out, with the dark room displayed after. I know there's other methods, but t...

Re: Other systems?

I just feel like we're reading a lot into a simple question, the OP could've been more communicative but getting all paranoid and suspicious is not going to encourage anybody else reading this either. They're likely new to IF if they don't know the other options out there, and I mean there's no poin...

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.

A Return to Positivity

So this is a little random, but I feel like I've been really really down on Adrift and the handful of issues with it for awhile now and I imagine it's been a little annoying for the rest of you. There are still some things that frustrate me (particularly with the online player) that will probably ne...

Re: Popular Games...broken?

http://chooseyourstory.com/forums/the-lounge/message/28310 Skybreak LP thread has had some interest and a few new people messing around with Adrift. I'll have to check exactly what that means in terms of game downloads, I have a screenshot of the downloads in the top ten from when I first made this ...

Re: Other systems?

That's a lot, if learning a coding language doesn't intimidate you. Adrift is for those of us that want a powerful and flexible IF writing tool that does away with the need for that. But Inform is the main one for traditional parser based interactive fiction. If you're thinking more of IF as small "...

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

And Based vanishes! Mysterious! But re: the IFDB, I was told they banned another CYS admin's account this morning. He must've slipped under the radar during the initial purge, but then someone listed one of his games so that must've reminded them. Just the fact they took out Sentinel's account too w...

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

ayyyy I didn't know @Endmaster was here! 8) The IFDB situation still confuses me, it really must have been because of a grudge because that's the only way any of it makes any sense. ngl it upset me though even though I wasn't reading the threads when it was going on. I never interacted with these p...

Re: Popular Games...broken?

The Warlord was one I was thinking of, and yes maybe Tingalan too. I don't think Skybreak will have any trouble keeping its place with the amount of outside interest it has though. (I'm about to run an LP of it on another forum in fact.) If Campbell does revise things (assuming we keep 'Popular' as ...

Re: Popular Games...broken?

At least we can all agree the current system isn't ideal, in part because traffic is so slow the list isn't fluid at all. They're the first games anybody sees and they give the appearance of being recommended, therefore they're first games anybody downloads, and you only need like half a dozen a mon...

Re: Popular Games...broken?

Do you mean that we should make a lot of fake downloads to change the games on the list? If so, I don't think that is a good idea for several reasons. The question is just what do we as a community want to be the first games newbies see? We've put together top ten lists before, they're just not esp...
